So excited that October is here! I just wanted to share this quick and easy Halloween card with you – scroll down for the dimensions and details!
I wanted the card to look like Candy Corn so I used Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry cardstock and cut the panels 1 3/4" x 4". The cardbase is Basic Black cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". The greeting is from the Spooky Sweets stamp set which is available as a bundle with the Spooky Bats punch. The witches hat is from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper. This card was inspired by a candy corn card done by demonstrator Lorri Heiling, you can see her version here. Thanks for the inspiration Lorri!
I ran the panels through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder to add some texture. I love this folder, it turns your standard cardstock into fancy linen textured paper! I used the Layering Circles Dies and the Stitched Shapes Dies for the focal point and added the hat. It's hard to see in the photo but I added a Rhinestone to the hat and colored it black with the Basic Black Dark Stampin' Blend marker. Stampin' Blends are alcohol markers and are permanent when dry.
I had fun with the inside of the card too! The spooky cloud stamp and greeting stamp are both from the Spooky Sweets stamp set. The cloud (mist? whatever – lol!) is stamped in Smoky Slate. Every week I do exclusive videos for the members of my Stampfield Stars team of passionate paper crafters and share with them what I have been creating. This card was one of their favorites so I thought I would share it here too!! If you love Stampin' Up! products and would like to join our family we would love to have you. You can get information about joining here or contact me with any questions.
