Hi my Crafty Friends,
I am back with more Halloween fun! I can’t let myself pass up the chance to make as many Halloween cards as possible. I only get my favorite holiday once a year you know!
This cards shows of sooo many Halloween goodies, I hope you like it!
To make this card I used multiple stamp sets and supplies. I started with a Basic Black Card Base. Then I cut a smaller layer in Smokey Slate. I used the Halloween Scene Edgelits Tree to make my big hill. Then I cut a smaller hill out of Basic Gray to give it dimension and be a backdrop for the fence. This tree is in Landscape position which is a little wider than what the tree and fence are meant to cut. No worries, jut make the hill your own where you need to! Once I had that laid out I stamped the moon from the Spooky Fun stamp set and fussy cut that out. I sponged the moon with So Saffron Ink. I then added a few bats in the sky. These were also from the Spooky fun Stamp set. I also stamped the Jack-O-Lanterns from the same set and used the edgelits to cut them out. The next step was to stamp and color in the cute mummy and vampire from the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set. I used some non-Stampin’ Up markers and some leftover blendabilities to do this. I also stamped and colored the little trick-or-treat bags and then I fussy cut those out. The last step was to stamp the greeting, give it a layer behind it, and turn it into a banner. I topped it off with a Pumpkin Pie Halloween Night Enamel Dot.
There is still more Halloween fun to come from me so I hope I am giving you some inspiration!
Hello Crafty Friends!
I am taking a break from Halloween cards because a masculine birthday card is needed for one of my family members. I never seem to have enough of these so I should really make them more often. I wanted this one to look very Fallish since the individual’s birthday is right in the middle of Fall.
To make this card I started with a base of Dapper Denim cardstock. I layered that with a very thin layer of Soft Suede cardstock and stamped some of the Vintage Leaves with Versamark. Then I worked on the top layer of the card by stamping a random background on Tip Top Taupe cardstock. To do this I used mostly the Timeless Texture stamps, however I also pulled in one from the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set! The colors I used are Dapper Denim, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede inks. Once I had the background look I liked, I then used a sponge dauber to sponge in Crumb Cake across the whole card. I feel like this gives it an aged look. When I had all my stamping images I liked, I used versamark to stamp the leaves and ink splatters. Then I added Copper Embossing Powder to that and heat set it. I sure do love this Copper Embossing Powder! I decided to also emboss my sentiment and keep it a tone on tone look. Once I had the front all finished I layered the stamped paper with Rich Razzleberry and added Dapper Denim ribbon to finish it off. Once I had my idea it didn’t long to make this card so give it a try!
Don’t forget about the great sale still going on!

I have been playing around with all my Halloween stamp sets as I am having time. I always have a goal to try and come up with something new. I had seen other stamps stamp images that essentially look like a faux background paper and I thought I would give it a try.
To make this I used only stamps from the Spooky Fun stamp set which works perfectly for this technique. I wanted it to appear as though it was pre-printed paper rather than stamped images. To do that I try to stamp in similar groupings all around the card. I think it worked, what do you think? I also really wanted to try using the cute little tassels in the Holiday catalog. I love them! I decided to give the ghosts a little sparkle, can you see it? That was added with the clear wink of stella pen.
You could try this technique with any set of stamps that are meant to coordinate. Give it a try!
