Hello again! Jen Schow here to share a few Halloween-themed layouts with you. Today I wanted to show you how you can take non-themed stamp sets and get a little spooky with them!
I stamped the florals on black cardstock and heat embossed them using Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder. The metallic watercolors were the perfect way to add a pretty orangey hue to the images.
In order to keep the colors of this layout kind of “spooky”, I stamped the leaves in Permanent Black Crisp Ink. Stamping directly on the background of my light gray cardstock helps the flowers feel like they belong there.
To finish this layout, I decided to use the Linear Stencil in the top corner of the page because it kind of has a “spiderweb feel” to me. The perfect finishing touch was a few shimmery splatters using the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set. (You can see more of the process in the video later in this post!)
Sassy + Spooky
Let's take a look at another Halloween layout with a younger, brighter feel.
I started with a striped paper from the Live Your Dream 12×12 Paper Set and just trimmed out the stripes that matched my photos.
The geometric patterns found in the Pattern Power Stamp Set were a fun way to add a column of stamping and color to my layout to offset the horizontal stripes.
I added in some shapes and words from the Snapshots Stamp Set (it's one of my faves and on sale!)
Finally, I added my title and journaling to the stripes, using the alphabet stickers from the Live Your Dream Sticker Bundle.

Here's another look at the final layouts.
I hope you're inspired to create some Halloween projects with your favorite Altenew products too!
