Hi stamping friends and welcome back to my Paper Crafting Blog. I have a Spooky little share for you today – A Night in the Graveyard card created with the Graveyard Gate Bundle, Page 54 of the Stampin Up Holiday Catalogue.
This bundle is a stamp set/ Thinlits Dies Combo with this amazingly intricate gate Die!
along with a bone chillin selection of graveyard pieces. I had a little fun with them, and here is a mini tutorial for you with the steps.
And this Gate Die isn’t just for Halloween – I created a pretty birthday card with it in this post
A Night in the Graveyard – Mini Tutorial
I started by cutting a piece of printing paper and using the Basic Black ink and a sponge to create my mountains. Use both the positive and the negative side of the paper to add depth and shadows to the mountains.
I used the 1-3/8″ punch to punch a piece of Daffodil Delight for the moon, and sponged more Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie on it.
I glued the moon to the top right corner of my card, and added a little more Daffodil Delight to the sky before using the edge of my Black Ink pad to create the wispy clouds.
Angle the ink pad so you are just using the edge, and then twist it slightly to the left and right to created the angles with the ink.
Glue half of the die cut fence onto the card front, and then stamp the tomb stones, the crow and the bats also in black ink. (I’ll share with you what I did with the other half of the gate in a future card!)
Then I cut out some pumpkins from the Spooky Night Designer Paper to embellish the card.
The little curly pumpkin stems are die cut using the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits – page 51 of the holiday catalogue
