Happy Halloween

halloweenWOW…October 31st!  Happy Halloween everyone!  I wanted to take one more opportunity to share a fun Halloween card.  These were some ‘odds and ends’ that I had (you guessed it) sitting on top of my desk.

These little pumpkins are just the cutest and I just had to use them.  I love the Halloween Night Baker’s Twine and doing 4 layers at once really is a great way to use it (and fill up that big open area at the top of the panel – LOL!)

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 4 1/ x 11 folded
  • Silver/Black spider web dsp – 1 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Pumpkin Glimmer – 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to silver/black piece
  • Whisper White – 3 x 4 1/2, stamp greeting using Momento Black
  • Layer 4 strands of the Halloween Nights Baker’s Twine (2 of pumpkin/black and 2 of grey/black), wrap around panel and tie ito a bow.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp two pumpkins, faces, and stems/leaves using Momento Black, color with Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede markers, cut out; add one directly onto panel and one using dimensionals

So…HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

 Set(s): Jar of Haunts, Spooky Fun
Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Halloween Nights dsp, Pumpkin glimmer
Ink: Momento Black, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede
Other: Halloween Nights Baker’s Twine, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

suo160Time for still more Halloween fun this time with the SUO challenge – Fall Fun!  Nothing is more fun in the fall than Halloween!

This tiem I wanted to do something a little bit different…I haven’t used my Hearth and Home Thinlits in a while and thought it would be fun to create  a little Halloween scene outside the window!  I also wanted to so something a little different with using the ‘Christmas’ paper and not the Halloween Night dsp.  I think it turned out pretty good!

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Basic Black – 2 1/4 x 5 1/2, wrap some of the black/pumpkin twine around it then add panel to card front
  • Yellow/grey/black plaid print (Warmth and Cheer dsp) – 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 add to card front
  • Crumb Cake – cut out window and window sill, sponge using Crumb Cake; stamp greeting on sill using Momento Black
