I hope you’re having a great day! Maybe you’re thinking about putting together some Halloween cards for your favorite boys and ghouls but don’t know where to start. Some days the inspiration doesn’t come easy! Pretty Little Studio to the rescue with our Tuesday Pinterest photo! Here’s the photo for today to get your adrenaline pumping!
This is creepy (not a big fan of spiders here!) and beautiful at the same time. I love the lacy look of the web and the contrast of the black and white on soft watercolor. Here’s what I made!
I started with a background of papers from the Goosebumps Collection. The Pumpkin Guts pattern is a distress painted background that reminded me of the watercolor in the inspiration, and the Scaredy Cat graph paper has lots of linear lines like a web. The focal point or “canvas” for my design is a Creepy Crawly 3 x 4″ Journaling card (it says Goosebumps in jumbled letters).
I embellished this card with lots of circle elements that you can find throughout the collection. The Cut Aparts are quickly becoming a favorite of mine – they are easy to cut using a 1″ punch and they are very affordable. The Happy Halloween and cat are from the Scaredy Cat Cut Aparts, the skull and spider are from the Witch’s Brew Die Cuts, and the flair is from the Boo Ya 6-Pack.
More circles repeated in the design are sequins in Breezy blue and Crystal 4mm. That cool photo corner die cut is also from the Witch’s Brew die cut pack.
“A Haunting We Will Go” is from the Costume Party Word Sticker Sheet. There’s lots of great words/ sentiments on this sheet in a rainbow of colors that perfectly match the colors in the collection.
I hope this got your wheels spinning with wonderful ideas for your Halloween creations!
