While on Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Incentive Trip to Alaska last week (hard to believe it was a week ago), we received lots of wonderful product from the 2018 Holiday Catalog – as if the vacation on a cruise ship wasn’t good enough. You can read about my Incentive Trip here and see more of the goodies we received here.
Today’s project for the FabFriday sketch challenge showcases the new Spooky Bats punch, available starting September 5 in the new catalog. Here’s my spooky-fun card:
- Punch Me – I’m Dreaming. My simple card features THREE punches I love in the focal image – and one of them is a brand new punch in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Holiday Catalog! While there are three bats in the Spooky Bats punch, I used two on my card. Here’s a closer look at scene that was created with all three of the punches – can you name them?: How cool are these bats? These guys are flying right in front of the spooky, spooky moon. Here’s a look at the Spooky Bats punch: The Crushed Curry moon was punched with a 2-1/4″ Circle punch, and I accented it with two vellum clouds that were punched with the Pretty Label Punch. What a great shape on this punch! I only added glue to the portion of the cloud that’s hidden by the circle so that the ends can lift off the page a little bit.
- Intentionally Scratchy. Do you recognize the sentiment on this card? You are probably smart to guess that it’s a brand new stamp set that you’ll see in the upcoming Holiday Catalog – but you’d be wrong. Sorry. The sentiment is from the Labels to Love stamp set that debuted in last year’s Holiday Catalog. Here’s a look at Labels to Love: I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color the sentiment in the center of this stamp. The image is intentionally scratchy. To add some additional scratchiness, I roughly colored the sentiment.
- Spooky Color Combination. When I reached for light gray, black and yellow, I didn’t intend to make a Batman-themed card. It’s kind of where it went, though, isn’t it? If you like this combination of Smoky Slate, Crushed Curry and Basic Black, please save this for future reference:
Stamp Sets: Labels to Love Papers: Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Crushed Curry, Vellum Cardstock Inks: Basic Black Accessories: Spooky Bats Punch, 2-1/4″ Circle Punch, Pretty Label Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the FabFriday site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
