Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Week


Hello Crafty Friends! I’m so excited to be participating in the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Theme Week. All of their products are so wonderfully illustrated and designed, that it is a breeze to pull multiple stamp sets, stencils and dies together to make the cutest cards and decor. I did just that for this bright and bold shaker boxcard. 

I stamped images from newer and older sets to build this scene. Halloween PalsGhost FriendsHalloween friends, and Giving Thanks to name a few. I always use the coordinating dies to achieve a clean and polished look to my images. 

Before assembling this card, I created a flat mesh shaker using the new Cauldron Shaker Die. I cut the shaker twice, added a few stamped images along with some glow in the dark mini stars and some clay confetti pieces from the Halloween Party Mix. I sandwiched a small piece of orange tulle mesh to make a flat shaker using 1/8 double sided tape. 

For the background I inkblended an orange ombré sky and used the Spooky Sky Stencil to ink the bats and emboss the clouds onto my Bristol cardstock. I gently splattered with water and black ink to distress and “spookify” the sky. 

I was excited to use up several pieces of patterned paper remnants, that I had in my stash, for each of the layers and side panels of the box. I adhered my images and shaker through the layers and even made sure to have some floating pieces using acetate strips. I finished this up by stamping a sentiment on the back and adding a final pumpkin. 

I hope you love this fun and spooky card and appreciate you stopping by to see how I created it. Now is the perfect time for you to stock up on your Halloween supplies at Pretty Pink Posh, all of the Halloween items are on sale so don’t miss out!
