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.

A Haunted Spooky Dresser

I’ve become addicted to creating spooky dressers.  In my previous post I created a witch in the dresser.  Today I created a haunted dresser.  I love the Wicked Cool stamp set and Two-step Owl punch.  The punch is so versatile.  You can create penguins, witch owls, tulips bats and ghosts.  For this card I created the bat and ghosts from the owl punch.  The bat tutorial comes from Bonnie Mountford’s blog. I got the idea for the ghosts from Diane Carr.     See my previous post to link to Jackie Topa’s dresser tutorial and for Patti Lee’s blog link.

I have also submitted my card for the PPA60 Halloween Inspiration challenge.  Stop by and take a look at all the fabulous Halloween cards.

Witch in a Dresser and did I mention Fort Worth Regional

When I saw this card on Patti Lee’s blog I had to CASE it.  The template for this side step dresser card comes from Jackie Topa.  Click here for Jackie’s tutorial video for how to create this type of card.  I used the same colors and Wicked Cool stamp set Patti used.  Since I do not own the Curly Label punch I used the Tab punch instead and black Glimmer Brads I received at the Fort Worth regional.

Which leads me to mention I attended Stampin’ Up’s! Fort Worth Regional this past  Saturday.  It was a lot fun, informative and Shelli Gardner provided  inspiration.  We all need from time to time a reminder of what we need to be doing to achieve our goals.  There were some very talented demonstrators and SU home office staff present awesome projects and techniques.  This was my first SU event and loved it.  I was hoping to trade some of my Witch Halloween cards before the session started but due to a freeway closing did not arrive to the convention center early enough.  However I was able to trade throughout the session.  I will post  the cards I received in the next few days.  All I can say is the Fort Worth regional left me wanting more which is why I have made it a goal to go to convention.  If you’re a demonstrator and have not attended an SU event consider doing so.  You’ll be glad you did.  Now onto my card.

By the way I have also submitted my card to PPA60 Halloween Inspiration Challenge.  They have some great cards posted by the design team.
