Happy Halloween! Cards by Jenn

Hello, Sin City Stamps Fans!!
 It's Jenn with you today and I am going to show you how to create these Happy Halloween cards using Sin City Stamps designed by Rick St. Dennis!!
 Halloween is such a fun holiday for everyone, so why not get creative and make some cards!!

For this project, I used the DriBonez stamp set designed by Rick St.Dennis for Sin City Stamps.  

Start by creating your backgrounds. For this, you will need:
  • Dribonz Stamps,
  • Heavy cardstock, 
  • Black archival ink,
  • Distress inks,
  • Watermarking ink, 
  • Clear embossing powder, 
  • A heat tool.
For the first card, use the border stamp and watermarking ink to create border. 
Coat with clear embossing powder and activate with a heat tool.
Stamp distress inks one at a time onto a craft mat and spritz with water. Next dab your white cardstock in each and dry with a heat tool in between. Add a bit more ink and water to your craft mat, and use a paintbrush to add splatters of the same colors. Dry with a heat tool completely.


On another sheet of cardstock stamp the three skulls in black archival ink. Next use a 1" circle punch to cut each skull out. Set these aside. 


For the second card, repeat the background process. Use black archival ink to directly stamp the skull and add a sentiment.

 Add a hollowed out circle and sentiment to the first card.

 Use double sided tape to adhere the backgrounds to black cards either pre-made or folded cardstock, your choice! And there you have it, colorful, handmade Halloween cards!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you are inspired to get creative and make some fun Halloween cheer for your friends and family too!!
 Until next time, Jenn
