Trick Or Treat Yo'self- Halloween Card

Hey, Guys & Ghouls...
I'm back again and this time with the creepy-cute Halloween card using Maker's Movement's new Trick Or Treat Yo'self stamps & dies! 
Did, I ever mention before that I absolutely LOVE Halloween?! Well, I do!! Immensely! 

In fact, when I saw this Trick Or Treat Yo'self set, I knew I just had to have it! These characters look almost like little voodoo dolls... but cute ones! They were just screaming to be made into a card. And that's exactly what I did. Let me show you how...

Supplies Used
Trick Or Treat Yo'self stamp (Maker's Movement)
Trick Or Treat Yo'self Die Set (Makers Movement)
Crossover II (Crafter's Edge)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Watercolor Paper 
 110 lb White Cardstock (Recollections)
110 lb Black Cardstock ( Recollections)
MISTI (My Sweet Petunia)
Verasafine Onyx Black Ink (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Twin-tip Markers (Derwent Academy)
Waterbrush Pen
Star Stencil
Distress Oxide Ink- Carved Pumpkin, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch
Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn (Ranger Ink)
Washi Tape
Button Shank Remover (Buttons Galore)
Life Changing Blender Brushes (Picket Fence Studios)

I started by collecting my supplies. In an attempt to keep my dies together and to save time, before stamping my images, I usee my to help with stamp placement. I slid each coordinating stamp under its matching die. 

I only snipped the inner dies and separated them out those images could be stamped and cut separately. To snip apart the inner dies I used a button shank remover I had on hand.

Once I had my stamps positioned accordingly, I removed the dies, closed the lid and adhered the stamps to my MISTI. Then inked my images using Verasafine Onyx Black Ink.

I used my Derwent Twin-tip Markers to color the images then blended it out with a water brush.

After coloring my images, I used the matching Trick and Treat Yo'self dies to die-cut them out using my Crossover II machine.

For my card front, I  wanted to create a starry skyline. So I used washi tape and taped
off the upper section of the cardstock. I placed my stencil over the paper and inked on Carved PumpkinSalty Ocean, & Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks with my Life Changing Blender Brushes.

I removed the stencil then brushed on more ink over the stenciled background. Carved Pumpkin over the Pumpkin stars, Salty Ocean over the Salty Ocean stars, and Blueprint Sketch over the Blueprint Sketch stars. 

Then I retaped the skyline and expose the uninked bottom portion. I blended on and covered the entire bottom with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. Then blended the edges with some Lucky Clover.

I removed the washi tape and stamped along the horizon with the fence stamp with more Verasafine Onyx Black Ink.

Then stamped "Trick or Treat Yo'self" at the bottom corner.

I used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach the card front to a black 

Before attaching my images, I wanted to give them a bit of dimension... so I ran a sheet of craft foam through my Xyron Creative Station., flipped it over and ran it through a second time to create my own DIY foam adhesive.

I cut out the amount I needed and attached it to the back of my colored images, then mounted them onto my card front.

And here is my finished card...

These little guys came out so stinking cute!!
