Happy Scenes Halloween Cards

Happy Friday everyone!  Can't believe tomorrow is Halloween.  I have two Halloween cards for you today from my recent class featuring the Happy Scenes Stamp Set.  Love this stamp set!!!

The first card above is fairly simple with a great masking stamp technique.  All you need to get the cool moon image in the background is an ink pad, sponge, and a 1" Circle punch-out.  Follow these easy steps:
  1. Place your circle punch-out on your card stock.
  2. Grab your sponge and ink it up.
  3. Carefully sponge around your circle punch-out making sure not to move your circle.  Repeat until you are happy with the ink coverage.  
To stamp the tree/pumpkin image, I used the new Archival Basic Black Ink Pad and then use the Tangelo Twist Marker to color the pumpkins and leaves.   This piece is adhered with some Dimensionals to the back of a window frame die-cut.

This card is my favorite Halloween Card this year!  The window portion of the card front opens up and it expands to the inside of the card.  I added a little tag for easy opening - just pull it to open.  How fun!!!

The window die-cut is a shaker filled with some Metallics Sequins and stamped spider die-cuts.  And this piece is adhered to the folded part of Vanilla card insert.  The bat is a punch art using the Elegant Butterfly and the 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch.  This card is really fun to make!!

Halloween Shutter Scrapbook

Hello Stampers!  Here is an adorable scrapbook we made in my Scrapbook Club last month.  It's super cute!!  I have created so many scrapbooks but I think this is my first "narrow and tall" scrapbook ever.  It's 4" x 12" when closed but it expands when opened completely.

The Howl-o-ween Treat Stamp Set and the Boo to You Framelits are perfect products to embellish this scrapbook.  I love the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper too.

I had so much fun creating this scrapbook.  Can't wait to fill these empty spots with new pictures of this year's Halloween.  Not quite sure at this point if my 9 year old son gets to go trick or treating this year since his football team has a BIG payoff game on Halloween:)  It will be ok...he can just go straight from the game to trick or treating in his football gear.  Right?  I just hope he won't have to go in a muddy gear....

Peaceful Wreath Card - Peace at Christmas

Here is a card I CASED from the Holiday Catalog using the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set.  One of my customers recently contacted me and expressed her interests in making this card for her Christmas this year.  She wanted to know what supplies were used and also the dimensions of each piece.  So I gave it a try and came up with my own version of the card.  Isn't it gorgeous?

I LOVE how the gold from three different materials (1/8" Gold Ribbon, Gold Metallic Thread, and Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack) added a special effect on this card!  I chose to use the Shimmery White card stock instead of Whisper White card stock to stamp the image because it's perfect for watercoloring and adds a delicate shimmery effect.   I used the Watermelon Wonder Marker to color the berries on this card but you could also use the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to dazzle it up.  Just a thought!!!

Supply List and Measurements to make my card:
  • Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set (Holiday Catalog)
  • Mossy Meadow card stock (card base) - 3 1/2" x 11", scored at 5 1/2" 
  • Shimmery White card stock - 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
  • Winter Wonderland Vellum - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (Holiday Catalog)
  • Mossy Meadow Ink Pad
  • Watermelon Wonder Marker
  • Blender Pen
  • Project Life Corner Punch
  • 1/8" Gold Ribbon
  • Gold Metallic Thread

Here is a list of alternative supplies:
  • Old Olive card stock instead of Mossy Meadows 
  • Whisper White card stock instead of Shimmery White card stock
  • Real Red Marker or Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (instead of Watermelon Wonder Marker)

Hello Stampers!  I am excited to announce my new Happy Scenes Holiday Card Class today.  Ever since the new Holiday Catalog was introduced, the Happy Scenes Stamp Set/Hearth & Home Thinlits Bundle has been one of the top seller products.  Unfortunately this has caused the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies to be backordered:)  However, the stamp set is available and you can use the stamp set without the dies in many ways.  So I strongly suggest if you like the bundle, order it as soon as possible so that your name is placed on the backorder list!  In the meantime, come to my class and learn cool techniques and ideas to make these fun cards.  You will be ready and go when your die set finally arrives.....
