Elizabeth Craft Designs Artist Team September Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Artist Team Challenge. Every month the Artist Team is challenged with a theme to showcase the fabulous product from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This month the challenge is Spooktacular Creations.

There is a chance for you to win a $20 gift card. Visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog Post. Leave a comment and answer this question. What are some of your favorite products when creating spooky scenes for Halloween? 3 lucky winners will be chosen in a random drawing.

Below you will find the easy steps to replicate this card.

  • Step 1 - Cut Orange Soft Finish Cardstock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Score and fold in half to form a vertical side-fold card base. Finished size:  4 1/2" x 5 1/2" (A2)
  • Step 2 - Trim Black Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and adhere to center front of card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape
  • Step 3 - Create your background (Optional - You can use Halloween Patterned Paper instead). I used Oxide Inks with White Soft Finish Cardstock to create a spooky sky background. I added some colors of the Oxides Inks onto a kraft mat, spritzed some water and dipped the White Soft Finish Cardstock on top. Dry with a Heat Gun. Repeating this several times. In between dips and heat drying I sprayed some water for some water effects. Let dry. See below for finished background.
  • Step 4 - Trim the background to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the center front of card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
  • Step 5 - Diecut Black Soft Finish Cardstock with Halloween Scenary. The tree, graveyard and bat. You will need to diecut the bat 2 more times.
  • Step 6 - Stamp sentiment Boo from Halloween Clear Stamps with an embossing pad and sprinkle white embossing powder. Heat set.
  • Step 7 - Adhere graveyard diecut to bottom of background with 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape and Kids Choice Glue. The glue will dry clear. I used it randomly but left the top part of the graveyard glue free. The loose parts will add dimension.
  • Step 8 - Trim spooky tree and adhere to background at the top left with Kids Choice Glue. (see photo below for visual of cut tree)
  • Step 9 - Adhere the 3 bats with Kids Choice Glue.

Mini Tag

I had so much fun that I decided to do a quick Mini Tag.
  • On White Soft Finish Cardstock I created a background using Oxide Inks.
  • Diecut the background using Tags & More 4 Flourish.
  • Stamp and color Halloween Clear Stamp then diecut with matching die.
  • Diecut some leaves with Pumpkins.
  • Create the scene - adhere pieces with 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and for smaller pieces using Kid's Choice Glue.
  • Optional adhere a ribbon through the hole at the top of the tag.
