Yay for today’s simple Spooky Sweets & Cauldron Framelits Quick & Easy Halloween card. I am loving playing with the items from Holiday catalog this year! I have been working my way through the seasons this time because my life plate is full…
However, when my friend asked if I had played with the Christmas sets yet, I had to sadly say no! I took on the joy of being Superintendent of the Crafts & Hobbies section of our State Fair last year so my last month has been nuts! Now I am at a craft retreat writing today’s post and enjoying a quiet weekend looking forward to all the amazing Fall and Christmas cards to come!
The fun bat card above was a quick and easy card I made for our monthly swap group. Simply start with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″, score and fold in half at 5.5″. The second black layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, add the top white stamped layer cut at 3.75″ x 3.75″. The final touches are a strip of DSP and Shimmer Black ribbon. Finally pop up the cute hat and sentiment and remember to make your envelope pretty!

I just love this Stampin Up Holiday 2018 Spooky Sweets Bundle WOW Card that I made for our group swap! I love the fun bats, the spider web die cuts, and the cute little spider trinkets! This was simply and all around fun card to make 🙂

I wanted to share this super fun Stampin’ Up! Spooky Night & Cat Halloween Card I made! This was a color challenge which fit perfectly for the fall season!
I have been having fun with all our color challenges and we would love to have you all submit cards each week. For now just send the challenge # and your photo with name to firstname.lastname@example.org
For this card simply start with an A2 card base in Early Espresso cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″. Score and fold in half at 4.25″. Add a layer of DSP cut at 5.25″ x 4″. The Espresso strip is 5″ x 2.5″. And the So Saffron square is 3.25″ x 3.25″. Cut the tree DSP and stamp the owl in Early Espresso. Fussy cut the pumpkins and add the stems in Pear Pizzazz. Finally add the sentiment.
This Stampin’Up! Graveyard Gate Bundle Halloween card was one of our color challenges. I loved how it turned out so different from the the traditional blacks, purples, oranges, etc…
The color palette I had to work with was Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla. But… I really wanted to use that beautiful new detailed gate thinlet die from the 2017 Holiday catalog! I made it work… lol …
Start with an A2 card base of early espresso cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold at 5.5″. The top sponged layer is sahara sand cardstock cut at 5.25″ x 4″. I used the Big Shot die cutter to to cut out the detailed gate in early espresso cardstock.
Next, use a 1″ circle punch on the sticky part of a post it note to create a resist spot for sponging the sky. I sponged lightly in crumb cake and then added a few streaks of early espresso lightly to the sky. When you lift away the post it note circle you leave a clean spot ( voila moon!)
I very carefully cut out the center of the gate. Then I attached each side to the base and used foam adhesive strips to pop up the center. Add the lock, key, and sentiment and that’s it! Remember to make your envelope pretty!
Here’s my Stampin’ Up! Spooky Cat Witch Hat Halloween card. This was a fun color challenge that stretched my creativity. Crushed curry, Perfect Plum, and Cherry cobbler, lol… Hmmmm… Ended up loving the Halloween card I came up with!
It unfortunately doesn’t show up very well, but the Wink of Stella adds just the right touch of shimmer to the potion bottles. And I also used a black stampin write marker to deepen the color of the witches hat since it was directly against the black cardstock.
For this card start with an A2 card base in black cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″. Score and fold at 4.25″. The Crushed Curry layer is 5.25″ x 4″, the Black layer is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, and the white top stamped layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″
Scatter the potion bottles across the white layer (remember to leave room for your bubbles!) I did fussy cut the hat, but it’s very easy! Remember to make your envelope pretty!
