Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! Boo! Today we are sharing scary and sweet projects perfect for Halloween. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I’ve already posted all kinds of cards using the Kindest Gnomes bundle, and I’m adding another one for this blog hop. Today, I combined a gnome with the Scary Cute bundle for my BOO! card. I created a simple z-fold card using both bundles.
Here’s my BOO! card:
- The Gorgeous Grape base measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2 inches.
- The two Old Olive panels measure 4-1/8 by 2-5/8 inches.
- The Gingham Cottage Pumpkin Pie DSP (designer series paper) measures 5-1/4 by 4 inches, mainly because that’s all I had left of the paper.
- The Scary Silhouettes die set was used for all the cropped pieces, except the gnome, of course.
- I cropped the Gorgeous Grape and white cardstock using the Scary Silhouettes die.
- The are three layers Basic Black frames adhered together with multipurpose liquid glue.
- I placed dimensionals under the bats and the gnome since they would be placed on the open part of the z-fold card base.
Stamping, Cropping, and Coloring:
- I used Old Olive ink and the trio of bats stamp and stamped them randomly on both Old Olive panels.
- Next, I used a blending brush and Mango Melody ink on white cardstock to create the moon. After I punched it out using a 1-inch circle punch. In order to get it to fit in the corner under the frames, I used the open base die. Then, I adhered it under the frames.
- I used the Momento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp both sentiments and the bats on the white cardstock.
- My desire to save cardstock when possible gave me an idea for cropping the spooky house so it fits inside the frames. I found that after cropping the frames, I could place the house die at the bottom of the negative space from the frames. By sitting the house right up against the edge, the resulting cropped house will fit the frames perfectly.
- I needed to make sure that I only adhered the left side of the the framed piece on the front. Then, I carefully placed the white cardstock under the framed piece on the front so the white wouldn’t show when I closed the card.
- I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Smoky Slate blends combos. I created the lines on this cuties’ pants using my Old Olive marker.
- Next, I used a Basic Black marker for the lantern and colored the “glass” using the clear Wink of Stella.
- With that, I’d finished this adorable BOO! card.

Basic Crafting Supplies:
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
I did with the purchase of two of these NEW birthday organizer kits! I actually got my delivery with the two kits on Sunday (yes, it was delivered on Sunday)! YEAH!
Here’s an unboxing video explaining the kit contents:
I got one kit for my mom and one for my aunt, neither of whom get out as easily as they used to do. I’m in the process of making additional cards to include with this kit, that I will make for them before I give them as a present.
