Halloween Distress Cards No. 4,5 & 6

I have three little ghoulish nephews I wanted to send a special Halloween wish to. So I thought what better than the Tim Holtz sizzix Ghoulish dies....


I started on the background... by using the blotting technique with Black Soot Distress Oxide and a squirt or two of water on a piece of watercolor paper. 


Next I added a small amount of Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink, using the same blotting technique. 



I cut out each of the “ghouls” from the Goulish die set. 
I blotted the skeleton in Iced Spruce Distress Oxide, the vampire is blotted in Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide and the zombie is blotted in Twisted Citron Distress Oxide. 



I cut out “trick or treat” from the Halloween words thinlit set. 
I blotted it in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide. 


I blotted a strip of watercolor paper in Black Soot Distress Ink. Using the Ghoulish die set, I cut out several sets of bats. 

With the Martha Stewart circle cutter I cut out circles in velum. 


Before gluing all my elements together, I wrapped some bronze thread around the bottom of my card layer. 


I added a small piece of black paper behind the “trick or treat” and glued everything to the layer. 



Using the stamping platform I was able to stamp the sentiment (from the Monsterous stamp set) inside all three cards with ease!


I added some spiderwebs from the Tangled Webs stamp set using London Fog Memento ink. 









I absolutely love how these cards turned out! A little bit spooky and a little bit fun... I know my nephews love them!

My 3 year old loves to create! And since I’ve been in a Halloween groove lately and she wanted to get in on the action. 

So we went into the craft room and she got to make all the decisions...



She chose the Tim Holtz Jack-O-Lantern bigz die and a few colors of distress ink to add color. 


She chose the placement and made a spooktacular card!!

Distressed Halloween Card

I sat down in my craft room with the intention of making a Halloween card... and I am so happy with my final result I want to keep the card for myself! Don’t you hate it when that happens? 


For this card I used Tim Holtz paper dolls, the Etomology stamp set, Halloween collage paper as well as distress inks and stains. The card base is plain heavy weight black card stock and I used watercolor paper for my card layers. I had a dried wildflower in my stash and I used a wax seal as well as my sewing machine to complete this card. Check out my video for a complete step by step of how I created this card.
