So i saw this design, but for the life of me cant figureout how the person would have blended the 2 patterns (cheetah print and halloween pattern) on the text "spooky vibes" together so perfectly. Will someone please explain how i can achieve this look? I've included a picture!

Very quickly - something like this. Note the mask on the middle clipped layer

Using a gradient on a mask could achieve the pattern blend.  And then it's as easy as getting the letters outlined and arranged, and further masking out or erasing everything outside of the letters.

 

I would suspect this is done in a vector program like Illustrator though.

I added a plain white mask (reveal all) then painted it with two single horizontal lines using a large soft brush. It is the softness or hardness of the brush that controls the transition.

I meant for the post where you state that the blend that has a hard line. Please include the layers panel, (maybe switch its thumbnails to big in the local hamburger menu)

Ryan there are lots of dripping letter fonts out there, and most of them are free

 

https://www.fontspace.com/category/dripping

https://www.1001fonts.com/dripping-fonts.html

 

Eye Candy 7 has a drip effect.  I used Comic Sans as I am a rebel and its rounded shape lends itself to drips.

 If you have time on your hands, you can make the drips independently of the letters.

Stamp down a fully hard round brush on a new layer.

Drag out a tail with Liquify.

Add Bevel & Emboss layer style.  The shading angle needs to be 45° or 135° (ish) and you need to use trial and error on the altitude because it needs to be just right to get tht nice highlight.

Copy the layer a couple of times and randomise the size with Free Transform.

Select all the layers and copy and repeat.

Use Move > Align to distribute and move into place

The trick with the last step is to hold down down Ctrl (Cmd) and click on the drip with automatically selects the layer

It took me longer to type tyhis out than it did to create.

The font I used was Shlop - available from Adobe Fonts. Just go to Adobe Fonts and enable it.
