Halloween Shaker Card - Creepy Cute Stamp Set

Today I made a Halloween card using the Creepy Cute stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.


I started out by stamping the cat from the stamp set onto some Neenah solar white card stock. I then colored my little cat in using Copic markers. For the body of the cat I used N2, N4, and N6. For the hate I used V06, Vo9, and V17. For the band on the hat I used YG03 and YG17. After the coloring was finished I fussy cut the cat out with scissors.


Next I used a square die on a piece of A2 size white card stock. I stamped a sentiment from the Creepy Cute set on the bottom of that piece of card stock using my MISTI tool. The sentiment says "It's Meow-lloween!" I stamped it using Simon Says Stamp intense black ink.


I glued a piece of acetate over the square window using my ATG gun. Next I added two layers of foam tape around the window on the back to make my shaker area. I filled the shaker area with a bunch of black sequins and some tiny pewter star sequins. I then covered up the shaker with black card stock. I took the whole shaker panel and adhered it to a card base.


I used my ATG gun and some Gina K Connect glue to adhere my cat image to the card. For the finishing touches I went over the cats nose and eyes with a Micron pen to darken them up. I also used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the cat. I wanted this to be a very clean and simple card design, so with that I called it finished.
