Witchy Halloween

Today’s card is another quick Halloween card.  I made several to use with my Drop Off type Halloween gifts to my service providers.  I love giving the people I see at my local businesses, like my pharmacy, little treats as a Thank You for being so awesome!  And it just so happens to include another of the 15% OFF DSPS.  They are all shown at the bottom of the narrative.

 

 

This card is very similar to one I did about a month ago.  I just love the 4 X 4 and simple layouts for cards I am making multiples of.  And a purple with Halloween is my favorite color to work with.  For this card I paired the Blackberry Bliss spider paper from the Magic In This Night Designer Series paper, with Bumblee card stock and ink.

The stamp set is the Festive Post set.  It includes stamps for the next several upcoming holidays.  Plus it pairs with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  Although I did not use the postage stamp punch, I did pair it with a tag punch.  I used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch on this card.  I completed the tag with a bow made using the Metallic Mesh Ribbon.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have one of my Slim Line Cards to share with you tomorrow.

Halloween for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations – this month’s projects are all about Halloween. Prepare yourself for wonderful mix of spooky, scary and sweet. We are 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.

I am one that likes the fun and funny part of Halloween.  So the card I have for you is a little more on the cutesy side.  I also love Folds.  I am using one that I have not made in quite a while.  It is a Double Z Fold and I hope you like it.

 

 

 

Hopefully these cute little owls are not too terrified of the night!  I paired them with a variety of other Mini Catalog items.  The Owls are from the Have A Hoot Bundle.  They each have a die to cut them with, but I only cut out two of the three using the dies.  The third is cut using a Layering Circle, as are the background bats DSP.

Here is a look at the inside and the Double Z Fold:

 

 

I purposely lined up the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper so that the pattern matched.  Now looking at the card opened out, it makes it difficult to see the bottom Z .  I may have spread it too wide for the picture.

The “BOO!” is from the Playful Alphabet Dies and the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  I love the foam sheets.  I adhered the Basic Black Card stock to the foam and then die cut, Instant sticky letters!  Woohoo!

I have all of the products used listed under supplies at the very bottom of the post.  I also have the measurements if you are unfamiliar with this fold and want to give it a try. They are after the Blog Hop list.

Kitty Halloween

I am not a huge Halloween person.  But I love the Fall colors associated with it as well as Black Cats!  I have had four solid black cats in my life and they have all been the sweetest and easy going.  So when I saw the Ghoulish Goodies and the Black Cat, I knew I had to have it.

 

This is another one stamp set card, which I love.    I paired the stamps with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper stack.  This paper has color patterns to fit all occasions / seasons.  But plaid is a year round pattern for me!

The ribbon is the Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the Annual Catalog.  It is actually a carryover from last year’s holiday catalog.  The bling is from the Holiday rhinestones.

Measurements:

  • 4 1/4 X 11 for the Pumpkin Pie Base layer
  • 3 7/8 X 5 1/8 Basic Black
  • 3 3/4 X 5 DSP

Halloween Flight

Yesterday’s card was a Thanksgiving or Fall card.  I have stepped back a little for today and am sharing a Halloween cutie.

 

I think this little witch is adorable!  All of the stamps in the Flight of Fancy stamp set are like this.  There are three different figures with some background stamps to match.

For my background, I tried the new Water Painters from the Annual Catalog.  These are a set of three that replaced our old Aqua Painters.  I used the large brush and some Misty Moonlight Ink Refill on a clear stamping block.  With a touch of water, I used the ink to spread on a piece of Shimmery White card stock.  I love the tiny bit of shimmer you get.  I totally love the different shades of blue and almost purple that I got from the Misty Moonlight.  It just seemed the perfect color to use for an evening of broom flying!

The little witch is colored using Stampin’ Blends, as is her small companion mouse.   Everyone needs a sidekick!  The witch layer is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  These dies are great for layers and sentiments.  I love the different shapes included.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I really appreciate it.

Trick Or Treat

I love coloring of any kind.  So today I have sponging color to share.  It takes longer, and for me doesn’t always end up what I intended.  I still enjoy doing it.

 

 

This stamp is from the Everything Essential stamp set.  (It comes also as a bundle with a tag punch.)  The stamp set contains stamps for the next few holidays.  And they are all “tag size” , and super cute!!  It’s a great versatile set.  I already had this die cut piece on my desk, so opted to use it.   The die cut layer is from Painted Labels.

I used sponges to color the tag with Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate Inks.  I used the Crushed Curry for that eerie glow of the moon look.  The image is stamped with Blackberry Bliss Ink.

The DSP is from the Magic In This Night Designer Series paper.  I really dislike spiders!!!!  But I loved the piece of paper. 🙂  It is layered over Smoky Slate card stock and then Blackberry Bliss card stock as the base.

The perfect finishing touch for this little 4X4 card is the ribbon.  It is the Metallic Mesh Ribbon.  It is gorgeous!!  It is about 2″ wide but extremely easy to work with.  It is very soft, so it gathers very well.  And it makes beautiful bows!

We will have to wait and see what form Halloween and Trick or Treating takes in this crazy year we have going on.  In the meantime, Thank You for stopping by today.  I very much appreciate it.  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the post below the month’s Host Code

Witchy Halloween

I have been playing with new sets from the Mini Catalog today and considering all of the upcoming holidays.  I decided to give a nod to Halloween for this post.  I am not a Scary Halloween person.  I want the smiles and of course the candy!

Stampin' Up!, Festive Post, Fancy Tag, Magic In This Night, Jackie Beers

 

This adorable stamp is from the Festive Post stamp set.  I have used this set previously, as well as the Posted With Love set from the Annual Catalog.  Both of these are fast becoming favorites.

The DSP is from the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper.  It is so pretty!  I was very pleased to see Pretty Peacock, Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze paired with the Black in the pack of DSP.  This is probably my favorite sheet from the pack.  Pretty Peacock pairs well with so many colors that I was not afraid to pair it with Crumb Cake.  I needed that color for the witch’s brooms.

The Tag is cut using the Fancy Tag Punch.  Since this tag can be as long as you need it to be, I cut a 2″ strip, stamped and then decided where to cut the bottom length.  I love that.  The ribbon is the Pretty Peacock Scallop Linen Ribbon that carried over from the last Annual Catalog.  I knew I wanted something on the bottom of the tag and could not decide.  So I went ahead with the tie for the top while I was thinking on what would work.  When I noticed the back side of the ribbon was solid linen colored, I had found my answer.  I just cut a piece to 2″ and glued it to the bottom of the tag with the linen only side showing.  A happy find!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  This is a quick and cute card,  My Favorite!!!
