Hello friends and Welcome!
I’m back again today with another card that I created for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween Video…it’s a super duper easy one today!! In fact…so easy that I forgot to take process photos when I made it! I flew right threw this one. But thats a good thing sometimes. I don’t know about you, but I can already start to feel the holiday rush. Crazy, but true, so having a card that you can make in little time is a mighty good thing.
I used the new Sizzix Alphanumeric Cutout Lower Thinlets Die Set for the word “hocus pocus” along with a couple stars stars from the Swirling Stars Thinlets Die Set…and some of my favorite Stampers Anonymous Halloween Stamps. (Skulls and Cobwebs CMS306, Halloween Silhouettes CMS115) to give the card the needed “hocus pocus” I stamped the background in Picket Fence Distress Ink then embossed it with Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder…the effect is AMAZING in person but VERY hard to photograph. So I hope that you can see it in the photos. Take my word for it, in real life the Holographic Embossing Powder really made the card POP!
I inked up the cobwebs stamp with Black Soot Distress Ink, spritzed it with a little water and stamped it onto a piece of watercolor paper that was cut to a card front size. Then I dried it with my heat tool. I then blended a variety of orange distress and oxide inks onto the background and spritzed it with some water, dried the spots with a towel and dried it with my heat tool.
I then stamped the spider from the Halloween Silhouettes Stamp Set with Black Soot Distress ink and Embossed it with some Clear Embossing Powder.
I arranged the letters “hocus pocus” and a few stars and ran it through my Vagabond. I blended Black Soot Distress around the outside of the background edge and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.
“A Little” was from the Glorious Bouquet Stamp Set (CMS325) it was stamped on a scrap of watercolor paper and blended around the edges with Black Soot Distress, then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and adhered next to the phrase.
I then stamped the cobwebs onto a piece of black cardstock with Picket Fence Distress Ink, sprinkled it with the Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder and heat set it with my embossing gun. The black cardstock is slightly larger than the main background so that you could see some of the cobweb details. I matted the card front onto the cobweb background with pop dots and adhered it to a black card base.
With that, my card was complete…who couldn’t use a little hocus pocus around the house this time of the year!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and be sure to stop again soon!

Brilliant Halloween card! It sounds simple, but is loaded with spooky details! Love that spiderweb, especially in the Holographic EP; goes perfect with the Hocus Pocus (forgive me while I giggle; that word just makes me laugh) sentiment. Hugs!
