Happy Halloween with Penguin Palace Stamps

Hello spooky friends. Today I’m sharing and adorably sweet Halloween scene featuring the cutest spooky trio of trick or treaters from Penguin Palace Stamps. This stamp set is called Spooky Halloween and it’s from an earlier release, but it is still available along with the coordinating dies on the Penguin Palace website.

I started this project by cutting two pieces of cardstock with a stitched frame die. Once from a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, and another from a piece of lime green cardstock. I always like to get a matching stitched or crossed frame pattern on the panels I will use to layer over my base layer. Next I used a hilly grass die to cut a hill from the green panel, then I turned it around and cut another small hill side from the left over portion. I decided I would like a third smaller piece to tuck in and used the remaining fragment of green paper.

I used Crushed Olive Distress Oxide ink to to blend along the grassy edges to create depth and interest. I then blended Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon, and Picked Raspberry to create my vibrant sky. I splattered with clean water, then white opaque ink, followed by black ink. I put them aside to dry while I prepared my images.

Using my Stamp platform I stamped my images onto bright white Neenah Solar cardstock. I Copic colored my images in a variety of colors, making sure to give them each a fun and wild hair color. Next I used the coordinating Spooky Halloween Penguin Perfect Cuts to cut out out all of my images.
I heat embossed the sentiment into the center of the sky using gold embossing powder, before adhering my cemetery hillside.  I loved creating this lumpy bumpy hillside, and using a variety of glues I created my cemetery with gravestones and circling bats. My little cuties fit perfectly across the bottom of image.

I mounted the completed card panel onto bold striped paper, and that onto a bright orange cardbase creating a fun bold scene. I finished it all off with a few gold sequins and am so happy with my final project

Thank you for dropping in and I hope that you choose to create some cute and spooky cards soon too!
