Happy Halloween with a Flight of Fancy

I have been wanting to make a Halloween card with the Flight of Fancy stamp set and was inspired by the catalog sample and the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I haven’t made a slim line card in a long time and thought it was the perfect time to make one .  To refresh my memory I had help from Ana Helman.  She has the dimensions and a tutorial on her blog.  I started with Whisper White Heavy card stock base then a layer of Rich Razzleberry. The next Whisper White Heavy card stock layer I sponged with Gorgeous Grape then stamped with the stars, sentiment then heat embossed with gold.  The cute witch image I stamped with Momento Black then used a blender pen with Rich Razzleberry and Petal Pink Blender pen for the face then fussy cut.  I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Blends pen to color the stars and moon on her dress and hat.  I also used the lighter of the black Blender pens to color her cute mouse companion.  For the air stream behind the broom I stamped Vellum card stock with Versamark then heat embossed with gold embossing powder then fussy cut and adhered to the broom.  I used dimensionals to pop her up and make her look like she’s hovering above the clouds.  The clouds I die cut using the retired Up and Away Thinlits dies and the Tree of Life builder punch.  I also cut free hand the first layer of clouds at the bottom of the card.  The clouds I sponged with So Saffron as well as the moon.

Here’s the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Also, checkout the projects from the design team.

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.

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!

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.
