Happy H-owl-oween! - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hello all!  I am excited to be sharing a Halloween card today using a bunch of die cuts from the Rubbernecker shop including the new Build An Owl and Owl Halloween Add-On Die Sets (Along with a few other things)!

These die sets are each a one piece die so you cut all of the pieces at once. Easy peasy! 

  • I started by cutting each set multiple times from various colors of card stock.
  • I dumped them into two piles onto a sheet of white scrap paper... one with the owl parts and one with the Halloween parts.
  • I knew I wanted three owls for this card, so I started picking out the colors and pieces I wanted to use.  And as I did that, I started adding the like pieces to separate piles.  All circles in one, all belly pieces in another, etc.

  • Once I had all of the pieces I wanted, I continued to separate the other pieces that were left for easy use.
  • Trees were cut from black cardstock from both the Spooky Tree Die and the new Owl and Halloween Tree Die.

  • Once all of my pieces were cut and sorted, I began assembling my critters using liquid glue and some thin foam tape.
  • I ended up with a lot of eye pieces in various colors that I would normally want to be black.  I simply colored those with a black Copic marker and also did the same with any extra white pieces I was looking for that I wanted to be a different color.

  • With all of my critters completed, I cut a white base using the Slimline Solid Deckle Die.
  • I saved cloud templates I had cut previously and used them to ink blend clouds onto the background using purple, green and orange.
  • I layered that onto an 8 1/8" x 3 1/8" piece of white cardstock.
  • That was layered onto a purple 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of purple cardstock.
  • And all were layered onto a 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of black cardstock.

  • The trees were then added over the clouds.  I added three Owl and Halloween Trees first.  Very thin foam tape was added to the back and they were spaced evenly onto the cloud panel.
  • Next two Spooky Trees were added in between those trees with a foam tape that was just a bit thicker.

  • Next the owls were popped up onto the tree background.

  • Spacing them evenly apart and using foam tape (the most used item in my craft room.

  • I stamped the Happy Halloween onto some purple cardstock with Versamark Ink after wiping antistatic powder over it.
  • Then some white embossing powder was sprinkled over and the excess tapped off.
  • I heated it up and then let it cool.
  • I centered it in the middle of the banner die and taped that in place using washi tape and then ran it through my die cutting machine.
  • I popped it up onto the card.
  • Finally, I added a few sequins.

And that's me for today!
