As the trees become more and more colorful, and the roadside stands full of apples and pumpkins pop up, I’ve been inspired to make Halloween cards…and because Stampin’ Up’s great “Spend $40, Get FREE Ribbon” promotion ends Sunday, 30September. If you’re inspired to create, you can easily order the supplies, get free ribbon, and have plenty of crafting time before Halloween. Aren’t I thoughtful?
This charming vintage-ish card uses the fabulous Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP(Item 126906, $10.95 for set of 12 double-sided papers), along with the Greeting Card Kids stamp set(Item 120633, $15.95 for clear). I used the sentiment from the Kidoodles stamp set (122867, $16.95)…have you checked out that set? It has a great variety of occasions, and the illustrations are cute, but not too cute for any age.
I also added some Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon and used my Aqua Painter (a must have tool) and ink pads to color the little witch. The sentiment was punched using the Word Window punch.
This modern-style card uses the same DSP, adding the flower made of 5 punched scalloped circles, along with the ribbons. It’ a cleaner, less fussy look. I popped an Antique Brad in the center of the flower and stamped the sentiment using a retired hostess set, The More the Merrier. It would be simple to print it on your computer, as well, adding the dots with a marker.
I’ve been having a lot of fun creating Halloween cards…I’m totally in the mood for candy corn and caramel apples now! Tomorrow I’ll be showing you a Halloween printer’s tray that I made with some of the scraps from these cards…hope you check it out!
