It’s Halloween at Cute Card Thurday!

Hello friends!  Has the weather been cooling down for you yet?  We are supposed to get much cooler than normal over my way this weekend!  Night time low around 36 degrees is a bit too chilly this time of year!  I need Fall to last! 🙂

Today starts up a new challenge this week for Cute Card Thursday!  The theme for this one is “Halloween“!!  So if you still have some more Halloween cards or treat projects, etc that you need to make, please share it with us!  We look forward to seeing what you make!

For my card, I thought it would be fun to use another Whimsy Stamps October digital stamp with a Halloween theme:

Vicki-CCT603-Witch Cinnamon-Oct10

This cute little witch is called Witch Cinnamon and I’ve used her in a little different way from the original version for my card.

First thing I did was take some black cardstock and used an embossing folder for the trees in the background.  I took a white ink pad over it so the embossing stands out a bit better over it.  I layered this onto a piece of purple cardstock and then added it over an A2 sized top folding black card base.

I took a circle die and cut it out with some yellow glitter cardstock which I then popped up with some black craft foam that I also cut out with a circle die.  I took the bat die and also die cut some bats from black glitter card stock and attached them over the design along with the witch image that is “flying” in front of the moon.  I black heat embossed (sparkly black EP) the sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp Frightful Fun set over purple card stock that I cut into a banner over the design.  I then added a thin strip of green glitter card stock at the bottom of the card.

For this photo, I tried shutting the lights off so that you can see the “green dots” in the sky that glow in the dark!  These are Nuvo Glow Drops Neon – Apple Sour that I added for the dots in the sky area.  I’ve also taken a Stampin’ Up! punch from my stash and added some purple colored stars around the area too.  If you compare this photo to the one above, you can see that with the light on, the drops are a bit more translucent.  When the lights are dimmed, you can see the glow-in-the-dark effect!

I’ve zoomed in on how I’ve colored up this cutie for my card.  She’s colored with Copic markers and colored pencils.  If you take a look at the original image, you can see that I have decided to fussy cut out just the witch as I wanted her flying in front of a full bright glittery moon!  She still looks pretty cool if you were to cut her out entirely with a circle die too! 🙂

I’ve used a colored pencil to create a nice little “moon glow” on one side of her and in some areas along the top of her where I thought the moon would be glowing some light on her.

I’ve also used a white gel pen for her checks and for highlighting on her stockings.  I also used a silver gel pen to color in the buckle on her hat.  Hard to see in the photo, but behind her broom, I took a glitter pen to add a bit of shimmer where she was flying.

  9. This card is so pretty! I love the embossed tree background, and the details you added- the big moon, the stars and glow in the dark dots- how fun is that!!! I Love this!!!


  10. Witch Cinnamon is a real cutie – the kind of witches I like. Love your glitter yellow moon – such a good idea. And your embossing folder in the background is perfect.


  11. Hi, sorry for the late post. I discovered your blog and was scrolling through, I saw the background and you mentioned it was an embossing folder. I could only find a portrait one similar online. Where can I purchase a landscape one like this? Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Susan! The embossing folder I’ve used on this is by Darice and you are correct that it is only a portrait embossing folder. I have actually “pieced” it together as one piece to make it appear as if it’s going landscape. So, in other words, I ran it through TWICE and lined it up that way. Hope that makes sense! Thank you for stopping by my blog! Happy to have you here!! 🙂
