Stampin’ Up! Howl-O-Ween Treat is still on my mind!

Hi crafty Friends,

Yes, I am back with another Halloween card! I will go ahead and mention it now, it isn’t my last. ¬†ūüôā ¬†I nearly have all the cards made that I need, but not quite yet. ¬†Also, when I saw the inspiration photo over at the Fusion Blog I knew I had to make one more just to participate!

Howl-O-Ween Treat

I decided to loosely follow their inspiration photo and the sketch.  Here is what that looks like:

Fusion Sketch 10-15


To make this card I started with a black card base and added a layer of the spider web paper from the Happy Haunting DSP.  Then I added a layer of Black Glimmer Paper and Rich Razzelberry. Next I added one more layer of Very Vanilla and the star paper from the Happy Haunting DSP.  I topped that off with the cut out stamped images from the Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set. I realized I had not yet used the BOO from the Boo To You Framelits so I had to use that as my sentiment. I also used the star from that Framelit set to cut out those cute little stars.  I chose to use one more paper from the Happy Haunting DSP for this. This card is a little heavy with all the layers so it may cost more to send, but that is okay. I will make sure it goes to someone special.

I am, of course, entering this card in the challenge at FusionCardChallenge.

Hope you like it and you too are busy wrapping up your Halloween cards, because there is not much time left!!

More Halloween fun and The Weekly Deals!

Hi Crafty Friends!

I am back again with more Halloween goodies!  Today I tried a card with very similar features and just a few minor changes to see what I liked best. See what you think!

Here is the first one I did:

Howl-a-ween treat

This is a fast Halloween card using only two colors of paper, three colors of ink, and washi tape.

One the next card I tried a slight variation with the same supplies:

Howl-a-ween treat Skull

I simply added the spider to the witches hat instead of hanging him on a web and I colored in less of the hat. For both the hats I actually used my blender pens and  the Tangelo Twiest stamp pad for coloring.

I decided to try one more variation of this card.

Sweet Hauntings

For this one I used the Sweet Hauntings Stamp set and the A Little Something stamp set for the spiders.  I wanted it to look like the spiders were just starting to run across the card!  I used some washi  tape because I wanted to bring in the Rich Razzleberry color, but then I chose to use the Happy Haunting DSP paper instead of the rest of the Happy Haunting washi tape set.  I tied the tag on with some of the Basic Black Bakers Twine and I added that cut out circle in the back to just give it a little extra something.

So which one do you like best? ¬†I still don’t know which one is my favorite. ¬†Good thing I don’t have to choose, because I am sending them all to someone! ūüėČ

Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek #5 – Howl-O-Ween Treat!

Happy Sunday!

I am back with one more sneak peek from the holiday catalog coming out September 1! It is another Halloween card and it was fun to create.  Stampin Up Howl-o-ween Treat

Did you know a skeleton can also be a witch?  Me either, but when I put this hat on the skull decided why not?! That skull and hat are part of the new set called Howl-O-Ween Treat and it comes with lots of other goodies too. I will post a picture of the entire stamp set at the end of the blog. It even comes with a matching die set! Now, how about that adorable spider web doily? I have seen so many cute things made with this doily! If you turn it over it is white so you could use it more like a snowflake accent. I have also seen other emboss it in gold and other pretty colors to turn it into whatever color you need. The pretty paper you see is part of the new Happy Haunting DSP. It has matching washi tape too! The sentiment is from a current stamp set called And Many More.

Here is the Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set;

I hope you enjoyed another sneak peek.  I may have even more to share so keep checking back to see what I come up with!
