Trick or Treat Collaboration with Tara from Crafting With Curl E. Ques

 Halloween is almost here and today, I have a sweet treat for you!  Tara from and I decided to team up to create collaboration posts and videos.  Each of us made backgrounds and exchanged them to create cards.  I took one of the awesome backgrounds she made and created a shaker with one of my favorite Halloween stamp sets.  After stamping the adorable little dracula cat, I colored him with Copics and die cut him out.  Using two stitched rectangle dies, I cut a frame from some glitter paper, attached the acetate panel and added doubled up foam tape around the frame to create the pocket for the shaker bits to live in.  I added a few spiders to the background using heat embossing and added sequins, microbeads and mica flakes for the shaker bits.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, then added some green inks to tie it into the background.  To finish off my card, I attached the cat, sentiment bubble and bat using foam squares.  I also added some sparkle to Dracula's cape with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  Here's the video tutorial on my YouTube channel if you'd like to check it out and my supply list is below.
