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!
Happy World Card Making Day!!
I hope everyone is finding more time to be crafty than I am! The day job I have keeps getting in my way of fun stuff like stamping…. don’t you hate it when that happens? If there is any day we should all make time for it, it is today!
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!

Hi Crafty folks!
I am back with another Halloween card (I still have many more to make too!) For this card I used many items from the Spooky Fun Stamp set and the coordinating Halloween Scene Edgelits.
This card was a little bit of work, but I think I could re-create it much faster if I did it again. I spent alot of time working out what I would want on the card and where I wanted things. I started by finding DSP that might appear to be a wall. The brick in the Halloween Night DSP pack was perfect! I sponged that to make it look spookier. Then I used the Hearth and Home Framelit to cut out my window. I then used the Halloween Scene Edgelits to cut out the Tree and the Pumpkins. The bat and Ghost were cut/stamped using the Home Sweet Home Thinlit Dies and Sweet Home stamp set. The Moon is from the Spooky Fun set and was stamped in Smokey Slate ink. I then used So Saffron to sponge the color on the Moon. I fussy cut the moon out so I could easily place it behind the tree just where I wanted it. I adhered all the items on a piece of Whisper White paper that was sponged with Wisteria Wonder and Smokey Slate to make it look like a spooky night. Once I had that assembled, I used the spider web and Spider from the Spooky Fun Stamp set up in the corner. Then I got out my Hardwood background stamp so I could make a floor board. I wanted the Pumpkins to look as though they are sitting on the floor, did it work? I finished up the card by added some Halloween Night Baker’s Twine and stamping the sentiment on the banner from the Number of Years Stamp set. I also used the coordinating Large Number Framelits to cut out the banner.
I hope you like this card! I think it may end up being one of my favorites this year!
