Well – we made it to Friday! And – it’s the Friday before a 3-day weekend!
And – it’s THE Friday!! The one where the new 2017 Holiday Catalog is Live, Baby, Live!!
If I did my job right, I’ve been up for a bit by the time you read this – and will have ordered all the Painted Harvest Bundles and got them headed out! And – ordered a bunch of ribbon and paper and embellishments for the Holiday Catalog shares!! Whoo-hooo! 🙂
One of the goodies in those shares is in the card I have to share with you today! I pulled some Spooky Night DSP and added a little Labels to Love and a few pumpkins from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlit dies. I even threw in a couple of goodies from Spooky Cat. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.
I started with two rectangular panels of Spooky Night DSP and matted them both on Basic Black card stock.
I cut a Whisper White circle using the largest Stitched Shapes Framelit dies and then ran it thru the Big Shot in my Woodlands TIEF.
I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed circle to the card front and then added the smaller matted DSP panel over the top.
Next up, I cut the large pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits in Pumpkin Pie card stock, then I adhered it to a piece of Crushed Curry. I snipped the excess Crushed Curry. I also cut the small, star-strewn pumpkin in Whisper White.
I used a few Glue Dots to wind some Black and Gold Metallic Threads in several large loops and then adhered the pumpkins over top. I fussy cut a witch’s hat from a piece of Spooky Night DSP and plopped it on the large pumpkin with some Liquid Glue.
The sentiment, from Labels to Love, is stamped in Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White. I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly. Then I punched it out with the new Everyday Label punch. I punched a second label in Basic Black and adhered it – slightly offset – onto the sentiment label.
I popped the sentiment over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To finish off the card front, I wrapped a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine twice around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape. Then I added a little double-bow with a Glue Dot and a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel!
For the inside, I ran just the side of a Whisper White panel thru the Woodland TIEF. Then I fussy cut a few more Spooky Night DSP witches’ hats and adhered them over the embossed trees with Liquid Glue.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Crushed Curry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I stamped a witch’s hat from the Spooky Cat stamp set in Basic Black Tuxedo Ink and colored in the buckle with my Pumpkin Pie Marker…
…and I added a little more Spooky Night DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I think all the different pieces and parts came together to make a fun and kind of whimsical Halloween card! Hope you like…and are busily getting your Holiday Catalog orders in!!

Okay – here’s an ugly truth about dogs. Who live with indoor cats.
Dog love cat….uhm…tootsie rolls. Poopa Roca. Get the drift?
Yes – even Finn. He’s an awful good boy, but…dog!
Usually we can head him off but…the other day….yea.
So – due to the incredible stinckosity of his breath, and a general urge to throw up a little when he came and panted in our faces – we decided to let him spend a little time outside. Maybe he’d chew a pinecone. Or put some pond scum between the cheek and the gum. Even eat some marinated horse poops.
Anything. Anything would have been better than what was panting out of his cute little mouth.
Mom? I swished my mouth out real good with pond water, mom….
Pitiful, isn’t he?
