Orange and Black Journal Cards for Halloween

Oversized Halloween Journal Cards.  Well, one of them is the regular size of 3" x 4".  But the larger size allowed for more stamping so I went with it!  A 12" x 12" scrapbook page yields 6 cards.  I rounded the corners on each and stamped with Staz On Black ink for them all. Here's a detail for each:
Halloween Background Card (left):  On a separate piece of fluorescent orange paper, I stamped Jack O Lantern and xacto knife cutout his eyes, nose and mouth.  I added a piece of fluorescent yellow paper underneath.  I also colored in the center word with a white gel pen. 

Raven Card (right):  I stamped Raven Flock Rubber Stamp onto the 4" x 6" card.  I then stamped Quoth the Raven Rubber Stamp on a separate paper, cut it out with patterned scissors and added distress brown ink along the edges (a technique I repeated on many of the cards!).  Velvet leaf stickers are added along the corner.

Stone Wall Card (left):  Standard Journal card sized at 3" x 4", I stamped Stone Wall Rubber Stamp onto the card and it covers the card completely, no trimming needed.  I then added our Happy Halloween Rubber Stamp onto a separate paper, cut it out and added magenta glitter glue and fluorescent pink marker at the bottom.

Witch's Lair Card (right): Vaulted Arches Rubber Stamp is in on the right side and Stone Wall is featured on the left side.  The badge across the center of the card is stamped with our Potion Labels Rubber Stamps.  Halloween Witch Rubber Stamp is centered at the top.  (The sentiment portion is used on another card!)

Boo Card (left):  One of the Victorian Ladies Rubber Stamps seemed like a perfect scary person to have one one of the cards.  Stone Wall is again featured above the door and a lantern from our Winter Lantern Set of Rubber Stamps was used before Christmas.  Chandelier Silhouette is stamped on the top right and the word, 'Boo!' was colored in stencils.

Haunted House Card (right): features the other stamp from Halloween Witch Rubber Stamp, 2-Stamp Set.  Fluorescent yellow was also used as a background to the text and distress ink was added to the edges.  The Halloween Bat Rubber Stamp is white ink stamped onto black paper.  The way I made it so it wouldn't smear, is I added clear glitter glue to the surface.  The glitter glue gives it a nice shimmer while sealing in the ink.
