Big Bear Halloween Version, 4 ways

Hello! I have some fun Halloween cards for you using the “Boo” set from Waffle Flower, featuring one of my favorite characters: Big Bear! I use mostly Distress Oxide Inks to create these backgrounds and I really had a lot of fun!

This first one is the simplest to make: just stamp some black stripes for the background, color up your bear and pop him up using Scotch 3M foam tape! (This is my favorite and I buy it in a big roll!) I used the Plaid Play set to stamp these stripes in VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

[Here I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the bear.] Then, I added the card panel to an orange card base, stamped the “Boo” sentiment in orange marmalade Distress Oxide ink and Voila! A cute Halloween card that didn’t take very long at all!

For the second card, I used the same stamp set, but got a very different look!

Oh, Big Bear, you look very cute with a cape! I just cut a small piece of felt in a “cape-like” shape and attached it to the car front using my favorite glue: Tombow Mono Multi glue. A little black twine tied in a knot makes it look like an official cape. Lol.

For the background, I used Distress Oxide Ink in Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, and Wilted Violet. (These are from the January 2017 Distress Oxide colors).  I added some die cut stars in silver glitter paper, and a moon shape and sentiment from the Waffle Flower “Reach for the Stars” set.

I love those ghosts in the corner!

My third card uses Distress Oxide ink in Spiced Marmalade to make a puff of smoke behind Big Bear. I cut my own mask in a smoke shape using Post-It Full Adhesive sheets, then inked on the orange color. Add some sparkly Stickles and White dots to create a magical look.

The background is made with Distress Oxides in Broken China and Faded Jeans colors and splashed with water droplets. I masked the bear first before this ink went on…it’s an *almost* one layer card! The Boo sentiment is heat embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock and adhered to the upper left of the card. I like the black card base for this one.

And my last card is one of my favorites…Big Bear flying over a graveyard!! (This grave stamp set is from My Favorite Things)

The Distress Oxides are wonderful for creating a background like this! I also inked on the gravestones using the Iced Spruce color. To get the granite-like texture on the gravestones, the Distress Spritzer is key! I used a few grey Distress Markers in the spritzer on the gravestones BEFORE I cut them out. Don’t they look cool?

For the stars in the sky, I used one of my favorite colors of Stickles: here. It creates a silvery/gold star in the sky! Just add some dots and they dry to a glittery perfection.

I hope you enjoyed these projects! I’d love to hear if you send out Halloween Cards. I have to say, that I don’t normally send Halloween cards, but when you have stamps as cute as these…now I love to make and send them!

Happy Halloween!
