One of my favorite quotes on Pinterest reads “Why I don’t look out the window at night: 1% – I’m afraid of the dark, 99% I’m afraid I’ll see someone else looking back at me.” In a strange way, that was one of the inspirations for today’s spooky card I made with a layout from Freshly Made Sketches. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Three Windows. Do you recognize the three Basic Black panels I used in this card? After embossing the floating eyeballs from Freaky Friends, a stamp set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog, I cropped the panels with my Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. What a great collection of Framelits that can be used for so many projects.
- Angled Eyes. Rather than to have the floating eyeballs line up along the three panels, I decided to position them at an angle – still floating but angling down from the center of the card. The Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder really pops against the Basic Black background, don’t you think?
- New Items. This card features a lot of products that are new to the Annual Catalog and some products that will be available in the Holiday Catalog. From the Annual Catalog, I’ve used the Project Life Framelits (mentioned in the first bullet point), Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder (mentioned in the second bullet point) and Basic Black Baker’s Twine. From the upcoming Holiday Catalog, I’ve used three new stamp sets – Mingle All the Way, Freaky Friends and Holiday Invitation.
Stamp Sets: Freaky Friends, Mingle All the Way, Holiday Invitation Papers: Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Whisper White Inks: Crushed Curry, Memento Tuxedo Black Accessories: Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits, Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Basic Black Baker’s Twine, 1-1/4″ Circle punch, 1-3/8″ Circle punch, Stampin’ Write Marker (Crushed Curry), Stampin’ Dimensionals

Has Your Demonstrator Disappeared? I’ve received several messages over the past couple of weeks from avid stampers who’ve lost their demonstrator.
