Halloween Ghouls Night Out

I have a lot of fun making Halloween cards for my grand daughters, nieces and nephews.  I thought about using my recently purchased on-line this  lovely gingham ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and wanted to use it on this card that will be sent to my niece.

I cut out the Cherry Lynn Design, Spider Web doily using black glitter paper and glued it on the right corner of the card. 

The sentiments that are embossed are from Impression Obsession Scary Words.  First, I cut the words with black paper and dabbed it with Adirondack Dabber, Wild Plum.  I applied the VersaMark Dazzle embossing stamp pad onto the words to make the words shine more and then poured the Ranger Melt Art Ultra Thick Clear Embossing Enamel powder before using the hot gun to melt the powder.  I use the Ranger Melt Art Ultra Thick clear embossing powder often since it makes the words stand out and gives it a  3-D effect. 

I typed the Ghouls' Night Out and stressed the edges with some light green ink.

Since the Ghouls are probably going to have some brew on their night out, I cut out the kettle from Spellbinder's Shape-abilities Witches Brew set.  I used gold and orange Stickles glue on the bottom to make it look like fire under the kettle.  I used 1/4" punch to punch out circles to look like bubbles from the brew, out of gold glitter paper.  I used clear acrylic and glued some of the bubbles on the tip of the acrylic strip to make it look like bubbles floating out of the kettle. 

The witches hat on top of one ghost also came from Spellbinder's Shape-abilities, Witches Brew set.
The printed paper came in a pad and made by KC Company. 

Supplies were:
Spellbinder's Shape-abilities, Witches Brew set
Cherry Lynn Design, Spider Web doily
Really Reasonable Ribbon
Stickles glue
Impression Obsession Scary Words
Adirondack Dabber, Wild Plum
Ranger Melt Art Ultra Thick Clear Embossing Enamel
