Halloween/Spooky | Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Hello friends! Today I created a card for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week’s theme is “Halloween/Spooky”! I used a few Lawn Fawn products to make my Halloween theme shaker card!

For today’s card I used Lawn Fawn Monster Mash and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Stars Stackable dies to make a spooky shaker card.

I colored my images with Zig markers then fussy cut them since I did not have the coordinating dies. I set this aside to assemble my shaker components.

I inked up two panels with Distress Inks in shades of purple for one and shades of orange for the other. I then splattered some paint and let it dry. While it was drying, I diecut a piece of grass from black card stock using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die.

After my panels dried, I die cut the largest start from Outside in Stitched Stars Stackable. I put a piece of acetate behind it and built up a well using foam tape to hold my shaker bits. I filled the well with clear confetti and black mini star confetti and covered the back with the orange ink-blended panel. I then adhered the grass and stamped images onto the shaker card with a tape runner.

I finished up with a few white gel pen accents and my shaker is complete!

I hope you like my card and I inspired you to join in the fun at Simon Says Stamp this week! As with any challenge, there’s an amazing prize up for grabs!
