Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I so love working with the monster collection and really wanted to try one with the monster jumping out of the bushes.
Select varying shades of blue ink and a black ink of your choice. From white soft finish cardstock, cut a 3 ½ x 8 ½ piece of cardstock. Also cut a card base from black cardstock measuring 7 ½ x 8 5/8 and score at 3 5/8. Cut out and assemble Monster 3. Additionally, cut a piece of grass using the Tree die set. Also cut some bushes from the Forest Accessories die set and pumpkins from the Hay Ride die set. Finally, cut a pumpkin from the Scarecrow die set.
Starting with the lights blue ink, blend ink into the center of the piece of white cardstock. Go to the next shade of blue which is a darker than the first and blend that around the light blue ink, leaving the center untouched. Follow that color with the next darker shade of blue ink. Lastly, go around the edges with black ink.
Using white ink/paint, lightly splatter the white paint onto the card to simulate stars in the night sky.
Using the Pull Tabs die, cut the center notch at the top of the card panel and a slider piece into the center of the card.
Cut a slider piece, two circle pieces, and a slider wrap from black cardstock using the Pull Tabs die set. Fold the slider mechanism on the score lines as well as the slider wrap. Also fold one of the circles in half on its score line.
Fold the tabs of the slider and glue down leaving the half circles unglued. Slide the have circle through the opening, open up, and add glue
Adhere the unfolded circle to the slider piece. Also adhere the grass piece and stamp with the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Autumn Words stamp set
Pull the slider tab up to the position of your choice and add the monster to the circle piece. In the monsters hand is the pumpkin from the die set and stamped with the “trick or treat” from the Autumn Wordsstamp set
Adhere the shrubs pieces together forming a larger bush for the monster to hide behind. Add foam tape/dots to the bottom of the shrubs. This will act as a stopper for the monster and give space the it to slide behind
Adhere the shrub piece and pumpkins to the card front
Adhere the slider wrap to the back of the card to assist in the slider movement. Add foam tape on the back of the card front. The foam tape with help raise the card enough to allow for the easier sliding as well.
Adhere the card front to the base and the card is complete
