Today’s card is a quick-and-done card for the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch. The sketch features a band across an offset panel with a sentiment on it. My band? An elegant tree branch. My sentiment? stamped right on top of the owl from Spooky Night. Such fun! Here’s my card:
- Spooky Cat. Page 53 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Holiday Catalog is filled with so many wonderful products for Halloween (and beyond). Spooky Cat is such a creepy (in a good way) stamp set that you’ll want for your October 31 creations. A cat, a rat and a trio of tiny vats. Here’s a look at this bundle:
Today’s card features the super-fun owl – it’s a THREE-step stamp. I stamped the owl’s body with Crumb Cake. Next I stamped the beak and feet (it’s one stamp) with Pumpkin Pie ink. Last I stamped the eyes and sentiment (it’s one stamp) with Archival Basic Black. Last, I cut out the owl. I perched him on the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, cropped in Soft Suede. Such fun!
- Merry Little Christmas for Halloween. When I started to make this card, I really wanted to feature the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. This piece of black paper, through, from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, caught my eye. While it’s a perfect backdrop for a beautiful Christmas card, it’s also a perfect backdrop for my spooky owl. Here’s a look at the patterns in this pack of papers:
- Color Combination. While Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black are always popular colors during Halloween, I added Crumb Cake to this project for a different look. Crumb Cake is a magical color – it pairs with EVERYTHING. It looks particularly wonderful here to tone down the orange. If you like this color combination, too, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Spooky Cat Papers: Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Thick Whisper White Inks: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Archival Basic Black Accessories: Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
