Have a Spooktacular Halloween

Yesterday I shared a sweet-and-simple Christmas card with this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – you can see that project here. I had so much fun with that sketch that I decided to make a Halloween with the same layout. My project combines items from the INCREDIBLE Halloween Suite (Monster Bash) with a bundle that’s perfect for all seasons. Here’s my card:

Spooktacular Bash Bundle, Hello Harvest Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian King

And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:

  • Spooktacular Bash & Harvest Hellos. Even if you aren’t “into” Halloween, you need to take a look at the Ornate Frames Dies in the Ornate Frames Dies that are front-and-center in this suite of products. Here’s a look at the Spooktacular Bash Bundle, which includes the Spooktacular Bash stamp set and Ornate Frames Dies:Spooktacular Bash Bundle, Stampin' Up! 153040Just look at how gorgeous this stitched die is (and it fits perfectly around this sentiment from the coordinating stamp set:Spooktacular Bash Bundle, Hello Harvest Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingThe pumpkins are from the Harvest Hellos Bundle – the coordinating punch can help you create apples OR pumpkins. How smart is that?! Here’s a look at the Harvest Hellos Bundle: Harvest Hellos Bundle, Stampin 'Up!, 153037
  • Monster Bash. I couldn’t find the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper more adorable. It’s a little spooky (but not gory or scary). I adore the mix of colors and patterns in this pack of papers – perfect to serve as the focal point of a project or a beautiful backdrop. Here’s a look at the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper:Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog, 150447If you love the bundle and the papers, you might as well take a look at the entire suite (it’s available with one click if you just want it all).

  • Halloween Colors. While I love the inclusion of Terracotta Tile and Crushed Curry in the Monster Bash Designer Series Papers, the page I used on this card features the classics – Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray and Basic Black. You don’t get any more Halloween-y than that. If you like this combination of Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray and Basic Black, please save this:Stampin' Up!
