Jar of Haunts Parade of Cards Day 2 …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today is day two of our “Jar of Haunts” stamp set card parade. Today we are going to delve into the spooky side!  Our little jar of haunts has himself all wrapped up.

Today I started with the Halloween Night Specialty Designer paper. Those may look like little with dots, but they are actually silver foil and that is where the glare on the card front is coming from.

I wanted a neat Halloween color pallet… the only thing missing is the orange but we did that yesterday!


My base is Elegant Eggplant and I teamed it up with the Cucumber Crush… these two colors look great together for Halloween. I water colored my little buddy with the Aqua Painter and Eggplant Envy ink, and his face is done in Cucumber Crush.  

You will find the doily with the 2015-2017 In Color Doilies in the annual catalog. I thought it added a nice touch to the card and highlighted our greeting which is stamped in Eggplant Envy. As I did on yesterdays card, I added the Halloween Nights Enamel Dots to the card – it just adds a fun pop to the card.


Inside you will find a pair of ghoulish eyes … Made even creepier when I used the Wink of Stella pen and Cucumber Crush ink to paint his eyes!! You must try this!! I went back a brushed the Wink of Stella over his already colored face but the effect is slightly different.

This card really falls into the Quick -n- Easy category … even the watercoloring with the Aqua Painter went quick and it some dimension to our little friend.


Thank you for checking back on my “Jar of Haunts” parade of cards, I’ll be back tomorrow with card 3.

Have a wonderful day ~
