So I acquired both Year 7 and the Booyah stamp sets a while ago but haven’t gotten around to using them yet. I guess that’s like with most stamps sets I own lately o_O”. Actually, my “to use” pile has grown significantly in the past couple months due to the MFT retirement sale that happened at the end of July. There will be lots of cards featuring retired MFT products soon, I promise!
I saw someone on Instagram white heat emboss some ghosts for a Halloween card and thought that was the most amazing idea and went with it. So I white heat embossed the ghosts from Booyah with some of their accessories as well as candy from the Year 7 set, on vellum. I used Copic markers and coloured the back of the vellum to add faint colour to the images as the vellum is translucent. I white heat embossed a lot of the candy because I wanted to use it within the shaker card. I figured the ghosts dressed up would be trick or treating so putting candy within the shaker card seemed fitting.
I set up a scene using the Leafy Tree Backdrop and the larger of Little Town Hillside Pop Up Dies. I used the Little Town Hillside Pop Up instead of the Little Town Border Die because I really liked the stitched line on the pop up die. I wanted to create a night trick or treating scene so I cut both pieces using black cardstock.
I adhered a piece of acetate to my Leafy Tree Backdrop and adhered my ghosts to it with scor tape. Used a double layer of 3M foam tape on the back to encase my shaker components and set it aside.
The background sky was made by ink blending Distress Inks Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, and Black Soot. I sprayed the panel with water, dabbed it off, and then spritzed it with a mini mister filled with water and Perfect Pearls just to give it a bit of shimmer. I glued my Little Town Hillside to my background then proceeded to fill my shaker.
Along with the candy images, I also filled the shaker card with sequins from iridescent sequins by Darice, Clear Sparkling Mix Sequins by Pretty Pink Posh, and star pieces by Recollections.
I assembled my shaker card then glued the whole card front onto a grey card base with my ATG adhesive.
