Halloween Duo with Cutest Halloween and Clever Cats
It’s time for another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop, and today we’re focusing on Halloween! I’m giving you a “twofer” today with a Halloween Duo.
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.
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.
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.
