Happy Halloween – Pumpkinhead Scene

Hi there!! Happy Friday!! Brenda from mypapercutcreations here with you today with another Halloween card!! I just can’t stop!! Maybe it’s the colors that I love…or the pumpkins, or…I don’t know, but I just love making Halloween cards!! This one combines the Pumpkinhead and October Night Sky stencil sets. Let’s get started!!

I began by inking the pumpkins from the Pumpkinhead Stencil Set onto white cardstock with Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Inks using Blending Buddy Brushes.

Next, I inked the details onto the pumpkins with Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides (I have no idea why these turned kind of purple), and the stem with Peeled Paint and Rustic Wilderness.

I sprayed Pixie Spray onto the circle in the October Night Sky Stencil Set and adhered it to a panel of white cardstock. I blended Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks onto the panel, then removed the stencil.

I lightly inked some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide onto the moon with a Blending Buddy Brush to create the glow. Next, I inked the bats and trees from the October Night Sky Stencils onto the panel with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. The Pixie Spray pulled up some of the color on the background, but I think that just adds to the “spookiness”.

The pumpkins were cut out with the Pumpkinhead Coordinating Dies. I also die- cut the faces using the same dies to create the jack-o-lanterns and placed scraps of black cardstock behind them. The grass was die-cut from black cardstock using a die from the Slimline Great Outdoors Borders and Builders Die Set and adhered to the bottom of the ink-blended panel. I die-cut a black panel of cardstock with the largest of the Modern Embossed Rectangle Stack Dies and adhered the background panel to it.

The sentiment, from the Pick of the Patch Stamp Set, was white heat embossed onto the grass.

The pumpkins were stacked and adhered to the front of the card with foam adhesive and I was finished!!

I kind of like the way the Distress Oxide Inks turned purple on the pumpkins! It brightens it up and ties the pumpkins together with the background…happy accident!!

What about you…are you obsessed with Halloween cards like I am?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Have a terrific weekend!!
