Haunted House Happy Birthday Halloween Card

This week’s color challenge of Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo and Early Espresso at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to make this birthday card for my father.  His birthday is on Halloween so every year I make card for him.  My card is based on the gate fold card.  I marked 1″ on the top and on the side then cut the top at an angle for the roof.  I used the Large Scallop Edgelits Die for the shingles and sponged around the edges of the card with Early Espresso to add some spooky shadowing.

To add dimension to the bat, booo, and sentiment I embossed them.

If the Shoe Fits…Wear it for Halloween

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Halloween!  I love this holiday and this year Stampin’ Up! has some very fun and spooky stamp sets.  Check them out in the holiday mini.

Since I love shaped cards I made a template of a witch’s boot.  I based it on the boot in the Spooky Bingo Bits  stamp set.  See card recipe below for template. I cut the boot out then embossed it with the Spider Web Embossing Folder then Smooched it.  I laced it up with Lucky Limeade ribbon and embellished with a fan fold.  I then  stamped the head of the witch in the Howl-O-Ween Creeps set on watercolor paper, with a blender pen I colored it with Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade classic ink then used the Dazzling Details to add some sparkle.  Finished off the boot with Black Satin ribbon, taffeta orange ribbon and Rich Razzleberry button.
