Today I made a card for the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge and the theme for this challenge was Halloween. I don’t think I own any of the Newton’s Nook’s designs Halloween stamp set or if I have them, I forgot where I put them, lol. It’s crazy how things get lost in my craft room, lol.
Anyways, I needed to create a Halloween theme card so I decided to use this turtle from the In Slow Motion Stamp set and created my own Halloween theme. I don’t have a video for this card because I was really sick the whole last week. This just came about as I was sitting in bed, just coloring random stamps. Initially I wanted to create a Birthday card with this, since the turtle actually has a present tied to his shell. I came up with 2 cards, almost the same design. One is a birthday card and the other being this Halloween card. I’ll share the other card in another time.
I went ahead and stamped out 3 turtles onto Neenah Solar White card stock from Paper Temptress. One on top of the other, masking the present on his shell, except for the top turtle. He has a present on his back but I attached a velvet bat on the present instead. I wanted this to be a Halloween card so I went ahead and stamped out one of the party hats from the same stamp set. I stamped it out very lightly so that I can draw in the bottom of the hat, making it into a witches hat. I colored it black and it fit perfectly on the turtle. I then stamped out couple of the candy bags from the Lawn Fawn’s stamp sets, which also fit in the turtles mouth perfectly. I cut the mouth of the turtle with my exacto knife and also cut a slit on the top of the bags, so that it can fit inside the turtles mouth. Super cute, right? I stamped out the sentiment from the same In Slow Motion set that says Shell-abrate! Super cleaver sentiment! I also stamped out underneath of the Shell-abrate using a Stampin Up’s stamp. I colored all the turtles using my Shinhan Touch Twin alcohol markers, which I use pretty regularly and it blends beautifully on this Neenah card stock. I love these markers ❤ I also found some small candies, from another Lawn Fawn’s stamp set and attached it to the other 2 turtles.
I used Dusty concord and Black soot distress inks to ink up this panel and I used this K&C Halloween pattern paper, along with the Paper Temptress Mango card stock as well as Neenah Solar White. I LOVE the Paper Temptress card stocks, so I think that will be the only card stock I’ll be using from now on 🙂 I then attached the whole panel to an A2 size card front and added some sequins to match the orange card stock. I attached some velvet bat’s to give more interest to this card. I also used my Signo white gel pen as well as glossy accents on the turtle and the shells.
