Hello crafty friends! I have some halloween-themed inspiration to share with you today featuring the new Sunny Studio Stamp’s “Too Cute To Spook” Stamp Set.
For my first project, I made an interactive 3D shadow box card. When you move the card, the spider swings back and forth. When folded, this card fits perfectly into a 5.25″ square envelope.
Shadowbox Card Measurements:
- Cut 2 pieces of card stock to 5″ x 6.25″ and score along the long side at 1.25″ x 5″
- Cut your window into one of your pieces (I used a standard stitched rectangle die)
- Cut the inside strips to 4 3/8″ long and however high they need to be (I varied mine so that you could see each grassy hill layer). Score these pieces at 3/8″ and 4″
** For details on how I made the swinging mechanism, take a look at a previous card that I made HERE. **
I stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating Too Cute To Spook Die Set to cut them out. For my background, I blended a mix of Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, and Candied Apple Distress Inks for my background.
For my second project, I made a trio of tags also featuring the Too Cute To Spook Stamp Set. I used the Mini Mat & Tag 3 Die Set to create the base of my tags. I die cut each tag base from a piece of purple card stock and then die cut my inside layering piece from some white card stock. On each of these pieces, I blended some Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, and Black Soot Distress Inks. I stamped my “Trick or Treat!” sentiment as well the tree and spider directly onto these pieces with black ink after the ink blending had dried.
Here’s a look at one way to use these tags. I placed some Halloween themed pencils inside of a pretzel gift bag and added my tags to create some fun trick-or-treat favors. For candy lovers, you could also put candy bars or halloween candy inside the favor bags instead. These tags are super easy and lots of fun!
