Halloween Stenciled Cards | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends.

Halloween cards are so much fun to make. I made two more cards using the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween release. For both of my cards, I’m using some of Pretty Pink Posh’s brand new Halloween layered stencils. I love using stencils because they make it so easy to add a fun background to a card by just adding some ink.

For my first card, I created a cute Halloween scene using the Layered Ghosts Stencil.

For my second card, I used the Layered Pumpkins stencil.

Halloween Card - Pretty Pink Posh Layered Ghosts Stencil, Halloween Critters

For my first card, I started by coloring the mummy bear image from the Halloween Critters stamp set.  I colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. The colors I used are as follows:

–Bandages – Gray, Light Gray, Blender
–Body – Brown, Blender
–Nose – Black
–Inside Ear – Beige
–Pumpkin – Orange, Bright Yellow

I also colored some of the images from the Halloween Envelopes stamp set, specifically, the candy and a spider. The colors I used are as follows:

–Jelly Bean – Carmine Red, Blender
–Candy Corn – Bright Yellow, Orange, Light Gray
–Candy – Violet
–Spider – Black, Blender 

For my background, I cut a piece of cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. I added Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink to the bottom inch of the cardstock which will represent the grass for my Halloween scene. Next, I added Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink all over the remaining background. Finally, I added Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink around the edges.

After I inked the entire background, I was ready to do some stenciling. The stencil I used is the Layered Ghosts Stencil. I placed Stencil A over the background. This stencil is the one with the shape of the ghosts. I wanted a very subtle ghost background so I added a white pigment ink to the ghosts. Next, I placed Stencil B on the background. This stencil contains ghost faces and I added them with a black ink. Finally, I added Stencil C which contains the stars. I used Picket Fence Studios Paper Glaze in Daffodil Yellow along with a palette knife to add the glaze. The glaze not only made the stars bright yellow, but it also added some dimension to my background which I love!

After my background dried,  I stamped the fence from the Halloween Borders stamp set onto the green grassy portion of the card layer using a black ink. I added my critter from the Halloween Critters stamp set, some candy from the Halloween Envelopes stamp set, and the word “boo” from the Boo Script die set.

Finally, I added this layer to a piece of a black cardstock that I cut to 4 ¼ x 5 1/2” and then added it to an A2 card base which is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

For my second card, I used the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Pumpkins Stencil and inked it up with Dried Marigold, Carved Pumpkin, Mowed Lawn, Antique Linen, and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide inks onto Bristol Smooth cardstock. I added the panel to piece of gray cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

I colored the cute Halloween cat from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Critters stamp set. I colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens in the following colors:

–Cat – Beige, Brown, Blender
–Pumpkin – Orange, Blender, Bright Yellow, Mustard
–Cape, Mask – Gray, Light Gray

I used the Pretty Pink Posh Easter Circle dies to cut the green die cut behind the cat and used the Pretty Pink Posh Strip die set to cut the gray stitched strips.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a spooky day!
