Happy Halloween!

Witch Hats

I hope you’re having a nice, relaxing Sunday! If you like to celebrate Halloween, I hope you have a Happy Halloween, with lots of little visitors this evening. We’re ready, and armed with candy and pretzels.

Witch Hats

Here’s a little project I thought I’d share with you. I had my friend, Colleen, in mind when I created these. She’s a huge fan of Halloween!

Witch Hats

I love to do what I call “Paper Engineering”, and I created this pattern myself. These are empty, but there’s space inside for a small treat.

Here’s the fixin’s:

The silver glimmer paper (spider web) and the black lace trim are vintage items from my stash.

Cutest Halloween Peekaboo

I used the Cutest Halloween bundle to make this Hey Boo! Peekaboo card. I cut all those circles with a single pass through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine using the circles die from the Picture This Dies Set.

Halloween Duo Cutest Halloween Stamps

I cut the circles from a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock. Laying this piece onto a white panel, I marked where the holes were with pencil, so I’d know exactly where to stamp.. When I finished stamping, I erased the pencil marks. I used the Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write markers to color the candy corn.

I embossed the Grape panel with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder, then popped this panel over the stamped panel using Dimensionals. Next, I layered this onto Basic Black CS, then onto a Granny Apple Green card base. Finally, I stamped and punched the ghost from a Basic White scrap and added it with Dimensionals.

I cut a small tag using the Tailored Tags Dies set and a scrap of Basic White cardstock. Then, I used a small piece of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon to tie onto the hole in the tag. Finally, the tag is placed on the card with Dimensionals.

The Best Part!!

Remember all those circles I cut out of my Hey Boo card? They are used in this Clever Cats card!

I saved the largest circle for the greeting. I adhered the rest of the circles randomly around the edges of a black 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ panel. Then, I flipped the panel over and cut off any excess, as I had the circles glued beyond the edges. I stamped bats on a couple of the smaller circles.

The black panel was adhered to a Granny Apple Green panel. BUT, BEFORE I did this, I cut the scalloped circle from the Granny Apple Green panel in the area that would be covered by the black panel. This is a great way to save cardstock!

I cut a piece of paper from the Pattern Party Host DSP pack to adhere below the black panel and a piece of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon was placed across the “seam” where these pieces meet. This was mounted onto a Gorgeous Grape card base.

Clever Cats Detail

I stamped the cat on a white circle with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored the eyes with the Granny Apple Green Blends.

The broom is stamped with Smoky Slate on a Basic White scrap, and then fussy cut. I used a craft knife to cut slits on either side of the tail, slipped the broom handle through, and glued it to the circle. Then, I mounted it onto the Granny Apple Green scalloped circle and adhered with Dimensionals.

Using the largest Gorgeous Grape circle, I stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered with Dimensionals to finish the card.

Time to Hop!

Now let’s see what my friends have created for us.

Cute Halloween Square Card

Today I’m showing you a Cute Halloween Square Card. This suite of products is not currently available, but our Blog Hop this week will give you a sneak peek into the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.

My friends in Australia don’t celebrate Halloween like we do here in the USA, so I thought using a Halloween set would be a chance for them to show their customers something they might not purchase for themselves. You could use this card design with ANY stamp set.

How to make it

This is a simple card to make. The base card is 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, so you can get two from one sheet of cardstock and have extra cardstock left over. Fold in half, so you have a 4 1/4″ square card. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black at the top of the card.

The DSP is 2″ x 4″, which is a good size, because you can get four pieces out of this 6″ x 6″ DSP. If your DSP is directional (has a specific “top” and “bottom”), you’ll get three pieces. Adhere to bottom of card, leaving a 1/8″ border on three sides.

The white square is 2 5/8″, and is based on the size of one of the dies from the Stitched with Whimsy Dies (these do not cut the square, they just add the stitched impression). The black square is 2 7/8″ to provide a 1/8″ border.

The details

I stamped the spider in Memento Tuxedo Black. The Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker was used to draw the “web” he’s dangling from.

I stamped the pumpkin outline in Memento on a scrap, and filled it with the solid stamp and Pumpkin Pie ink. The stem is colored with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker, and the pumpkin is punched with the Halloween Punch.

The bling

The Cute Halloween Suite has star embellishments, but I chose to use the Matte Black Dots from the Annual Catalog.
