Spooky Glowing Halloween Card

Hi Chris Saunders here again this time with a Spooky "Glow in the Dark" Halloween Card.

Halloween Spooky Glo-in-the-Dark card.
 This card was made using an 8" x 6" black card. I stencilled through a cut out circle at the top of the card with clear pigment ink then added Violet Pearl Embossing Powder. On top of that I then added Bright White in patches to create the shining moon. I then added chalk around the outside too for a moon-glow.

The bottom of the card was made by swiping my ink pad over the surface and adding Bright White Powder then Verdigris then Pepper. This gave a varigated look to the ground. I then added a church cut out from black cardstock to the top right of the card which I also added chalk to to make it stand out from the black background.

The next step was then the tree - I inked up a tree stamp with Ebony Regular Black powder on white cardstock. Once heated I cut the image out and then added the ghost  which was drawn onto white card and placed so that he is peering from behing the tree.

The Glo-in-the-dark element of the card was made by inking a piece of white card and adding 3 layers of Glo in the Dark powders. The doors and windows were cut out and added to the church image. The frames and door details were just marks made with a black pen.  The eyes and mouths of the pumpkins were also cut out from this Glo-in-the-Dark embossed cardstock.

The pumpkins themselves were  made using Clear Gloss powder mixed with Orange Flock which gave a realistic orange skin to the pumpkin. I heated both powders after mixing them up in a melt pot and poured them onto a silicone craft mat to dry. One large circle and one smaller circle.   The eyes and the mouth of each pumpkin were stuck on with PVA glue.
The Spooky sentiment was made using stickers and last but not least the little bats were cut out from black cardstock and stuck over the moon to add a bit more drama to the card.

This card was great fun to make and if left in the light then moved into the dark the windows, eyes and mouthes of the pumpkins will glow.   Great for kids at Halloween.

  1. This card just makes me smile, so much humour and another use for Flocks!!!

  2. Brilliant use of theme, mixes and design - love it! All it needs now is a photo of the glow in action... difficult to do I know :(


  3. I am in love with that pumpkin!

  4. Thanks for your comments everyone and you are right Neil. It is difficult to do the "glow" justice in a photo - you really have to see it in action to get the full effect.

  5. This is fansastic x

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…
