My cards today feature the Brand Spankin' New Spooky Scene Die-namics. I love that there are so many pieces that allow for a variety of looks.



My first card uses many elements from the Spooky Scene Die-namics, along with a few clouds cut from the Cloud Cover-Up Die-namicsMost of the die-cut elements were sponged with Premium Dye Ink.



The background was sponged with Sno Cone, Berrylicoius, Blu Raspberry, Grapesicle, and Grape Jelly. The ground strip, moon, tree, and headstone were also sponged to colorize them.


Want to see how I put together my card? Click HERE to watch the video, or press play, below.



Die-namics: Spooky Scene, Coud Cover-Up
Card Stock: Smooth White, Black Licorice
Premium Dye Inks: Sno Cone, Berrylicious, Blu Raspberry, Grapesicle, Grape Jelly, Grout Gray, Banana Split, Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz, Natural, Kraft, Chocolate Brown, Hot Fudge

Up next is this card that uses a sponged backdrop with the tree die-cut from it. The gradient colors go from Natural, to Kraft, to Chocolate Brown, to Hot Fudge. The sentiment, from Spooky Sentiments, was stamped in Orange Fizz and cut out. I popped it up over the trunk of the tree.



I stamped some Halloween text along the bottom of the smooth white panel in Orange Fizz.


Along the top, I added a half circle that was stamped with the Cheesecloth Background in Sweet Tooth. I added a small ghost accent over that.

I stamped some Halloween text in Versamark on the Grout Gray Fishtail Flag. Over that, I layered a piece of Washi Tape that had been stamped with the Washi Patterns stamp in Orange Fizz Ink. I accented it with a ghost from Spooky Scene Die-namics and added three small sequins.
