Make a Quick Batch of Halloween Cards with a Few Fun Techniques

2021-Oct-Neva-PumpkinCard

By Neva Cole –

In today’s tutorial I will show you how to put together a quick set of Halloween cards ready to send out.  Ink resist and coloring with Fantastix and Kaleidacolor pads makes for quick images to place on a card.  The background is another Kaleidacolor brayered onto glossy cardstock.

Skill:  Intermediate

Time:  1.5 hours

Directions:

2021-Oct-Neva-PumpkinCard2

Step 1

Stamp pumpkin images in VersaFine Clair three times each on white cardstock. VersaFine Clair is a perfect ink for this technique as there is no smear when coloring over with other dye based inks.

Step 2

Stamp pumpkin carving in Radiant Neon Electric Yellow and heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.

Step 3

Fussy cut or die cut pumpkins.  Use a Fantastix brush tip to color pumpkins using ink from Kaleidacolor Desert Heat and Cappuccino Delight.  The spectrum of colors allows a quick selection to shade different areas of the pumpkins.  Use a paper towel or soft cloth and remove ink from the embossed area so the images pop.

By Jessica Lin

Hi everyone, it’s Jessica here. Can you believe that it’s almost October? I felt like this year went by so fast! I thought I would start making Christmas cards earlier this year, and I wanted to create some “punny” cards. I remember when I first started cardmaking, I loved to make cards with puns or inside jokes because those were so different from store-bought cards. Do you like cards with puns? I would love to know!
