Halloween Hello

I had to make a Halloween card for my Trick or Treat friends.  I also tried a different layout that I really love and will definitely be giving it a go with other seasonal designs soon.

 

Stampin' Up!, tags tags tags, Jackie Beers, Spooktacular Bash

 

I used three different pieces of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper for this layout.  The star of the card though is the adorable tags.  They are from the Tags, Tags, Tags stamp set.  There are three tags for Halloween, three tags for Christmas, and three tags for Valentine.  The stamp is connected so it stamps all three at one time.  Then the matching dies cut all three tags at once.  What a deal!!

Here is a view of the inside of the card:

 

 

On the left side is the third of the tags.  The Whisper White sentiment layer is hidden from view by the front square.  I made it a smidgen smaller so it is easier to hide.  The sentiment is from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp set.  It has such cute sentiments.

 

Measurements:

  • 5 3/4 X 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • inside layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • inside DSP is 5 1/4 X 4
  • front left layer is 5 3/8 X 1 3/8
  • front DSP is 5 1/4 X 1 1/4
  • front center layer is 3 1/4 X 3 1/4
  • front DSP is 3 1/8 X 3 1/8
  • inside center is 3 X 3

Spooky for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPOOKY. With Halloween just around the corner, we are excited to share our spooky, fun projects with our neighbors, coworkers and family – and we’re excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The title of the Hop is also the title of my card.  That said, I do not do SCARY or SPOOKY!!  In my old age, I prefer cute and funny.  Do Not expect to be scared from my card.  I hope you will smile at the cuteness of this little fellow.

 

Stampin' Up!, Spooktacular Bash, Nine Lives, Harvest Hellos, Jackie Beers

 

I hope you are not afraid of Black Cats!  I love them and have had at least one for over 30 years.  Not the same one!!  I stamped this guy from the Nine Lives stamp set in Versamark Ink on Basic Black card stock and embossed using the Shimmer Black Glitter.

The pumpkins are from the Harvest Hellos Bundle.  They are stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink on Mango Melody card stock.  The faces are stamped in Cajun Craze with some Clear Wink of Stella to give some shimmer.

I paired two of the sheets of DSP from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from the Spooktacular stamp set and is die cut using the matching dies in the Bundle.  I added some of the Googly Eyes for the “O” in the Spooky.  I have some of the moon shimmer showing from beneath the sentiment.  I added a moon, but then the sentiment covered most of it.  It is not a booboo , just miscalculation !  I had to add a touch more shimmer and shine, so I added the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and tied a simple knot.

I have the measurements after the line up if you are looking for them.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sheryl Abernathy at Elegant Sentiments. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Quack or Treat

I don’t have any little ones to share Halloween with, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting to make cards and treat holders.  Today I am using one of the really flexible stamp sets for a Halloween card.

 

 

The stamp set Birds of A Feather are a group of funny birds that covers most of the Fall and Winter Holidays.  I love it!  For this card, I paired it with the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper.  The paper is a bit more spooky than the Trick or Treating duck.

The sentiment on the cute little tag is from the same set.  The tag itself is from the Mini Curvy Keepsake dies.  I embossed the sentiment with the Shimmer Black Embossing Powder to give it a little more shine and bling.  It is paired with the lovely Black Glitter Organdy Ribbon.  The ribbon was a carryover from last year, and I use it all the time.  Black and glitter are like the perfect LBD!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you like this not spooky Halloween card.

Spooktacular Halloween

The card I have today reminds me of a Harry Potter type card.  I recently re-read all of the books and have had it on my mind I suppose.  Let me know what you think.

 

 

I love books, so when I saw this sheet of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, I knew I had to use it first!  It reminds me of all the books in the Harry Potter series.

This is a quick and easy card that would be very easy to duplicate in multiples.  Although I think it needs a touch of  something additional, I cannot think what it is.  I used the Burlap Ribbon to ground the sentiment.  A dark background for the sentiment would work as well.

The shape of the sentiment is one of the dies from the bundle.  I really love the dies and their unusual shapes.  They would be wonderful to have year round!!

My color choices came directly from the DSP.  I chose Terracotta Tile and Soft Suede.  I like the books being the statement piece.  Of course the sentiment is a statement too 🙂

Thank you for visiting today!  Please come back tomorrow for another new project!

Happy Halloween

I hope you have time for one more Halloween card idea.   This one is not scary and could actually be used for Thanksgiving and Fall as well as Halloween.  I used the Seasonal Chums stamp set and Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies.  Unfortunately they are not a bundle any longer, but I am thrilled that they carried over.

 

Seasonal Chums and Seasonal Tags Framelits

 

Depending on the size of your viewing device, you may not be able to easily read the sentiment.  I LOVE this one.  It says Being Your Friend Is A Real Treat!  I just love that!  I believe I could get by with using that year round on little gift boxes/3D items.

I mentioned in the beginning that you could use this for other than Halloween.  Just change the colors a bit and do three of the back side of the pumpkin instead of the center carved pumpkin.  I used these as place card holders previously.  I did the same panel size and used a strip with the name raised up from the pumpkins.  Quick and easy as always!

If you are not familiar with this stamp set, it is intended as little gift tags.  The front and back of the pumpkin are attached at the top with a tiny strip and have an included ribbon hole.  All I did was use my paper snips to cut around the top and cut away that joining piece.  (This set includes a reindeer and a snowman, as well as that adorable sentiment)

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it.  I promise I will show a few of my favorite vacation in France pictures soon.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom the page.  I hope you have a fun and safe Halloween !!

Hello Everyone !!

I hope I still have my loyal followers here today.  I had an awesome two week vacation in France, but now I am back to share new projects with you.

The weather in France was warmer than expected and I came home to a bit cooler temperatures.  That was an unexpected pleasure.  This put me in the holiday spirits, plus realizing that Halloween is in two days!  Yikes!!!  So I covered all of the upcoming holidays in one project for you.  And it is a quick one as well.

Kraft Pillow Boxes, 147018

 

I created treat boxes for each of the upcoming holidays.  All of these were really quick.  I could have kept going on each one of the themes.  With the Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and great seasonal stamp sets, the ideas are just endless for decorating these little boxes.

The great part of these boxes are the price.  You get 10 boxes for $5.00.  That is an awesome deal!  They are large enough to hold a variety of candies or small gifts.  These are fairly basic in the designs.  I can see the beauty in coming up with a theme and creating a basket of these to have by your door for holiday guests or to take to a gathering.

Thank you for visiting today.  I really appreciate you hanging around for my return from vacation.  The supplies I used on the boxes are all listed at the bottom of the post.
