The New Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is Here!!

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am very late in posting this information but the new Catalog is here!!  I have yet another Halloween creation to share with you. ( I promise I will be making a few other types of cards soon!)

I used a few of the new catalog sets to make this card. The swirling branch was cut out with the Night Owl Thinlit dies.  There is a great coordinating stamp set that goes with the dies and it could easily be used for more than Halloween! The bats were cut out using the new Spooky Bats punch. The Happy Halloween sentiment came from the Spooky Sweets stamp set.  This stamp set coordinates with the Spooky Bats punch. The make the gray appearance behind the sentiment I just may a few swooshes with my Light Smokey Slate Blends marker.  The background for the scene was made using a aqua painter, smokey slate ink and watercolor paper.  I took a acrylic block and stamped the ink pad directly on it.  This became my palette for picking up as much of the ink that I needed with the aqua painter.  To make the moon I punched out Whisper White with my 1 1/2 inch circle punch and then added Daffodil Delight until I liked the appearance. I finished things off by adding some of the Frosted Droplets that are also in the new catalog.

I hope this gives you some more ideas for making spooky cards!
