Whimsy Stamps | 31 Nights of Halloween

October 21, 2021

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to night 21 of the Whimsy Stamps Annual 31 Nights of Halloween! There are over $300 worth of prizes up for grabs! Details on how to win can be found HERE.

I created a non-spooky, Halloween-themed box card tonight featuring some of the cute little candy corn critters from the “Candy Corn Dress Up Stamp Set”. These fun little images are all decked out for a night of trick or treating!

To start my card, I first stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then used Copic Markers to color them and used my Brother ScanNCut to quickly cut them out. Next, I used a paper trimmer to cut some black card stock and make a box card base with the help of a scoring board as well as some adhesive.

If you want a simple way to make a box card, MFT Stamps has a die set that is similar (with some slight differences) to the one that I made today that can be found HERE.

I added some grassy strips into the center of my box card by diecutting some black card stock with the grass dies from the Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Oranges: YR00, YR02, YR04, YR09, YR19
  • Whites: 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Black: W5, W7, W9
  • Grays: W2, W4, W6
  • Purple: V01, V15, V17, V09
  • Yellows: Y13, YR20, YR21, V12

For my ink blended pieces, I blended a mix of Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, and Black Ink Distress Inks. Lastly, I adhered my images with some liquid adhesive as well as some trees that I had die cut using the Tree Assortment Die Set.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

    This is fabooolous, Rachel. I love the dressed up candy corns. Such a fun idea. And the colors you chose just pop off the background colors. How fun that you went back to your “roots” and made a box card without the die set. Good reminder that it can be done! 🙂 Congrats again on your guest spot. So fun to see your creations.

    Rachel, you and Whimsy Stamps are a pair to draw too! I just love all the creations you have done with their fun Halloween stamps. I love Halloween more than Christmas so you know how much I love this box card. Great colors and such fun characters. I don’t know how you decide what color for what, but, it always looks so amazing. Thanks to you and Whimsy stamps for hosting this fun event!
