Haunted Invitations


My friend and co-worker requested a set of custom invitations for her son’s upcoming birthday. They are going to celebrate at an indoor trampoline park. (I’ve never been to one but, they look like a lot of fun!)

I copied the logo for Reboounderz off of the company’s website. And then in a Word document I changed it over to a black and white version so that I could color it how I liked.  And I downloaded a spooky looking free font from dafont.com. In order to have the company logo and the sentiment match in color, I chose a bubble style font so that I could color the letters by hand.

Zombie card, Halloween birthday invitation, rebounderz invitation,

The zombies and tombstones are two separate dollar bin stamps from Michaels, that I bought a few years back. (Always check out the dollar bins in Michaels and JoAnns because, sometimes they have great buys.) The sky and laser lights are colored with Copic Markers and then dabbed with a rag that has Copic blending solution on it. The ink will move away from any area where the solution is placed and by using a terry cloth rag it gives the ink a stippled look.

And because the invitations were for a trampoline party I mounted the Rebounderz logo on a Action Wobble spring to make it interactive. My friend’s son really loved the design and he was happy that I had made an extra one just for him. Hopefully his friends liked the design too!

Stay tuned for my Thanksgiving cards in a just a few days.

Happy Stamping,

Mo
