13 Days of Halloween - Day 1 - Halloween Ghosts Card (CASology Week #354)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge at CASology and a new cue word is Fog. :o)

Our challenge will run for three weeks this time, by Monday, November 4th, 2019, 9 AM, CDT (UTC -6).

We also have a sponsor for this challenge: STAMPlorations. Find all details about the prize over at CASology blog.

Today I'm also starting a new series here on my blog: 13 Days of Halloween!! :o) I'll be bringing you a Halloween themed project nearly every day by Halloween, 13 in total. Cards, polymer clay decoration sculptures... and many more. I hope you'll enjoy in the series and find some inspiration. :o)

Today, I'm featuring DAY 1, with this CAS (clean and simple), one layer, monochrome, Halloween Ghosts Card that I made for our new CASology challenge. :o)

Design defined: 
One layer and a monochromatic color scheme make a perfect CAS design.

How I made my card....

To make my card I used stamps from Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set and a cloud stencil I made by myself (I've described how I made the stencil here).

For the card I used only one color: Distress Ink Hickory Smoke.

I ink blended clouds, using a mini ink blending tool, directly on a white top folded card base.

Next up was a sentiment. I inked the stamp, first with a VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and then with the Distress Ink Hickory Smoke, pressed the stamp on the card, poured a clear embossing powder over the stamped sentiment and heat set the embossing powder with a heat tool. I repeated the same with ghosts and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements: 86 mm x 121 m(3 3/8" x 4 3/4")

  • Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set
