Witches Fly In a Glowing Moon

Hello friends!  With Fall on the way, I was really in the mood to create some spooky fun Halloween cards! (Plus I’m trying to get ready to fill my card rack for an up-coming craft booth and I ran low on Halloween cards from last year!)  I’ve also just received my winnings from playing in a challenge on Facebook, so I thought I’d use some products to enter again! 🙂

Vicki-SnS Black Magic-Glowing Moon

I thought I’d go for two cards here with the same products but used in a slightly different way with the colored backgrounds and orientation.

I’ve picked out this cute Cackle On stamp set and the Wicked Web die cut for my winnings that I’ve used on both cards.  As you can see from the props in the photo above, I have also used the Black Magic embossing powder to heat emboss the witch image on both of them.  I just love the sparkle effect that stuff has!  I’ve also die cut the webs in black cardstock and then went over them with clear embossing powder.

Below I will share details about each one:


To get the moon, I die cut a circle from masking paper and used the negative from the circle cut and placed it over my card front where I wanted the moon to be.  I inked the open circle area with VersaMark and then sprinkled some Glow-in-the Dark embossing powder over it and heat set it.  For my background, I have used some Ranger Mixed Media card stock because of all of the embossing and inking that I’ve done.  I didn’t have to, but I put the circle cut from masking paper back over the moon.  (The embossing would resist the ink, but I didn’t want to take a chance and covered it anyway…although it didn’t stick very well! LOL!)  I then used my ink foam blending tool and added some distress oxide inks to create the background sky.  I even used purple over the orange color, which is something you normally wouldn’t do, but with the oxide inks…it turns out stunning!

I then added some Nuvo Black Mousse with a sponge dauber along the edges which doesn’t show in the photo very well, but it has a cool shimmer.  Then this is where I’ve added the witch over the moon by inking it up with some pigment black ink and then heat embossed the Black Magic EP on it.  (I used my stamp positioner so that I could ink it several times as it was getting inked over the embossed moon.)  I’ve also inked up the sentiment in the same way except that I used some clear EP over it.

At the bottom, I cut a strip of ground with a grass edge border die and then used some Nuvo Copper mousse to sponge some color on top to make it look like the moon is shining over it.  I mounted card front panel over a top folding black A2 sized card base.  Then lastly, I added some black sequins and filled the centers with Nuvo Silver Glitter Drops and then a smaller dot with some Nuvo Black enamel Drops.


This card pretty much was made in the same manner as the above card with the exception of the Distress Oxide colors, I’ve used for sponging.  I also took my spray bottle and added some water droplets and then dabbed it off with a paper towel.

I cut out this panel with a MFT Wonky Stitch Rectangle die before attaching it to a black card base.

Then I wanted to show how cool this embossing powder is when the lights are off:


I tried to get it as dark as I could so that you could see how that embossing powder really glows in the dark!!  To get a really fabulous glow, it’s best to do a couple of layers of embossing over it.

Hope you are having a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by today!
