Distressed, Glossy and Ghosty by Jean Okimoto


Add distressed spookyness to the trees from the new Ghosts in the Forest set.  The friendly ghosts and a glossy black Rickety House create a fun Halloween scene.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a fall design that's easy - and fun!

Pressure emboss the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with the Ghosts in the Forest trees.  Place the diecut on a smooth, hard surface and brayer Onyx Black VersaFine over the raised sections - including some of the surrounding areas.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Once it's cooled, diecut it.  This techique lets you keep a little bit of the original cardstock color along the edges of each section.

Trim it with the 3-½" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut a dark orange 6x6 from the Sunny Orange Collection with the same die.  Attach the orange diecut behind the trees.

Cut the ghosts from heavy white cardstock.  Attach black cardstock scraps behind them for the facial features.

Cut Rickety House from Glossy Black Paper.  Attach scraps of yellow cardstock - from the Sunny Orange Collection - behind the windows.


Attach the diecuts to a top-folded black A2 card - use foamdots for the ghosts.  Add dark amber Fairy Crystals.

Hope you're liking the fall and Halloween ideas from our Fall 2022 Collection.  They're perfect for mixing and matching and combining with seasonal designs from last year's Halloween release.
