A Season to Sparkle starts with Halloween

I just had to create another Halloween card inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiment color challenge of Fresh Fig, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Twist.  I used the chandelier and other elements from the Season to Sparkle stamp set to create my card.

I sponged Fresh Fig, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Twist on glossy white card stock.  The chandelier is die cut from basic black.  The jeweled swag, bird and spider were stamped with Momento Black and die cut from whisper white.  The jewels were colored with an Aqua painter then colored with Clear Wink of Stella .  To make it all sparkle I added basic rhinestones and topped with a Lemon Twist bow.

Open if you Dare the Graveyard Gate

OOOH! OOOH! SPOOKY is what I was going for with the card I created with the Graveyard Gate bundle.  Inspiration for my card came from the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I sponged Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry for the sky then sponged Smoky Slate on the bottom to create the graveyard.  I then stamped the headstones and bats in Momento Black.  I used an adhesive sheet to die cut the gate so I could easily adhere the gate to the front of the card.

For the sentiment I die cut a circle with the 1-3/8″ punch and sponged it with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie then stamped the sentiment with Momento Black.  For extra sparkle I colored around the sentiment with Clear Wink of Stella.  The lock and key I die cut from silver foil.  Now… try to open the graveyard gate if you dare.

Jar of Haunts Happy Halloween

I love Halloween!  Growing up my family every year we a had Halloween party to celebrate my father’s birthday.  My father passed away last year but I still make a card for him in his memory.  My card this week is based on the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments and the Great Pumpkin from Charlie Brown.

I  created my own background paper by stamping the eyes with Versamark then heat embossing with white and iridescent embossing powders.  The iridescent embossing powder is retired but I still have some and I use it when I want to add a little sparkle.

The cute jack-0-lantern is stamped with Tangerine Tango on Pumpkin Pie from the Jar of Haunts stamp set which can be ordered from the 2016 Holiday catalog.  The leaf and stalk I stamped with Early Espresso, fussy cut and outlined the leaf and veins with Early Espresso and colored with  Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie.

The jar is stamped on White Shimmer with black ink then die cut using the jar framelit from the Everyday Jars Framelits set.  I adhered the Silver Satin Ribbon then adhered the jar.  The banners Silver and Black Glimmer paper die cut using the Banner Triple punch.  For an extra punch of bling I used basic rhinestones on the eyes and all over the black layer.

Spooky Among The Branches

My card this week is inspired by the latest Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I created my card with Among the Branches Stamp Set and Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder bundle.  My card was also inspired by the card on page 39 of the Holiday mini catalog.

Stampin Up Halloween card

I embossed Basic Gray card stock with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and stamped the bird and eye images.  I also used a Spider Web doily.  I stamped the greeting with Pumpkin Pie and adhered to the center of the doily web with dimensionals.  For added sparkle I spread Dazzking Details allover the background.  I also added basic rhinestones to the edges of the doily.

We’d love to see how this sketch inspires you.  Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see more inspiration!

BOO to you and a Howl-o-ween Treat

I received my pre-order stash from Stampin’ Up! and part of my order included the Howl-o-ween Treat Stamp Set + Boo to You Framelits Dies bundle.  Super cute images and the framelits makes it easy to die-cut them.  These cute images inspired me to make a side drawer card.  This type of card  CASE’d from Jackie Topa.  For instructions and a video click here.  I have previously made a couple of Halloween cards of this type and can be found here and here.

My side step drawer card features a skeleton and spider coming out of spooky drawers and an owl with a witch’s hat saying BOO!  I also used for embellishment the Spider Web Doilies.  I love them.  One side is black and the other is white.  I used the white side so it would contrast against the black.  I stamped the owl with silver ink.  I cut the drawers and the panel behind the owl from the new Black Glimmer paper.  I also used the Decorative Label punch on the to create the legs of the dresser.  I had so much fun creating this card!

All these products may be found in the new 2015 Holiday Catalog.

Happy Haunting Halloween Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge with the colors of Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz and Black.  These colors were perfect for a Halloween card.  I used the ghost from the Fall Fest stamp set and greeting from the Ghoulish Greetings stamp set.  For texture I used the Woodgrain Embossing folder and embellished with rhinestones.

I adhered the Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzaazz layers then punched the circles through both layers.  I stamped the ghosts with Versamark on the black layer and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The sentiment is also stamped in Versamrk and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  Super easy card to make!
