Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a fun Halloween card featuring the Scary Cute stamp set, Tailor Made Tags Dies, and Glitter Washi Tape! Have you ever started with one idea, had to scrap it, and ended making something completely different? That is what happened with this card, I first started out with the Alphabest stamp set and the Glitter Washi Tape and did not like it at all. So, I scrapped it, but still wanted to make use of the washi tape and created today’s card. Rather than keeping with the colors of the washi tape, I played off them and paired Starry Sky with Highland Heather and Parakeet Party with Old Olive, giving this card alternative Halloween colors!
The base layer is this design in Starry Sky from the 2022-2024 In Colors 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and I used two strips each in Highland Heather, black, and Old Olive Glitter Washi Tape to adhere diagonally across the DSP:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. A piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon, I used about 6”.
2. Use the largest curved Tailored Made Tags Die to die-cut from Parakeet Party cardstock.
3. Cut a 1 ½” x 3” piece of Basic White cardstock, use your Stamparatus to stamp the fairy in Starry Sky ink, the star stamp in Parakeet Party ink (first and second generation), and use a Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to create the shadow underneath, I used the Color Lifter to lighten it. This will be adhered to the middle of the tag die-cut.
4. Use the Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker to partially ink the top of the sentiment stamp, stamp on a piece of Basic White cardstock, and use the smallest banner Stylish Shapes Die to die-cut out. Tip-use either the marker or mask the sentiment, if you ink the whole sentiment and then die-cut, there are still a couple of “spots” from the sentiment that will show on the die-cut.
5. Use enough of the Parakeet Party baker’s twine to tie into a double bow.
6. You will need six of the large Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels, not pictured.
To assemble the tag, adhere the stamped image in the middle of the die-cut tag, thread the metallic ribbon through the hole, tie the baker’s twine around the metallic ribbon into a double bow, and use mini dimensionals to adhere the die-cut sentiment along the bottom. This is then adhered across the base layer with dimensionals, place the six iridescent pearls in the corners as shown, and adhere this completed piece to a Thick Basic White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, mask or use a Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker to ink the bottom half of the sentiment, use your Stamparatus to stamp the fairy in the bottom corner with Starry Sky ink, and stamp the stars in Parakeet Party ink:
For the coordinating Basic White Medium Envelope, use your Stamparatus to stamp the fairy in the corner with Starry Sky ink and stamp the stars in Parakeet Party ink:
Isn’t this a sweet Halloween card? Instead of a Halloween card, the tag could be used for trick or treat bags! You can change up the colors used and use the different characters to create a variety of fun and festive tags!
