Playful Boo, Hallloween Sideshow and Seaweed Collage by Jean Okimoto



Turn the Seaweed Collage upside-down - and create a creepy vine background for some fun characters from the Halloween Sideshow Clear Stamp Set and Die Set.  Add a bright Playful Boo and a Seaweed Stalks diecut - and there's your card!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with a nautical scene that transformed itself into a Halloween background.

Cut black cardstock with the  2.25" x 3.5" Rectangle Basics die.  Cut it again with the Seaweed Collage.  Cut the long wavy piece from the Seaweed Stalks set.  Attach the bottom of it behind the Seaweed Collage.

Stamp two ghosts, the caterpillar and the Jack o' Lantern from the Halloween Sideshow Clear Stamps Set with Onyx Black VersaFine.  Cut them with  the coordinating Halloween Sideshow Die Set.  Color the ghosts' mouths with a pink marker.

Rough-cut a wedge from the right side of the pumpkin - and pretend the caterpillar did it.

Attach the rectangle to a top-folded dark kraft A-2 card.  Attach the ghosts with foam dots - trim the right side of the lower ghost and slide him up to the inner edge of the collage.  

Attach the pumpkin.  Attach the caterpillar with foam dots.

Diecut Playful Boo from orange cardstock.

Add silver gem stickers for a bit of bling.
