Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a wide-open sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
I decided to swing to Halloween again for this one (don’t worry – STILL not a scary card, read on!) and pulled out the fun Scary Cute stamp set and bundled Scary Silhouettes Dies. And…I also used the Aspen Tree die. Take a look-see!
And here’s our sketch!
…and I got the idea to make a stencil from the Aspen Tree die thanks to the challenge from Just Us Girls.
I started with a black-and-Pumpkin Pie piece of plaid paper from the Gingham Cottage DSP that I adhered to the front of a Basic Black card base with Liquid Glue.
From a piece of Basic White cardstock – the color doesn’t matter, this is a stencil! – I cut the large Aspen Tree Die.
I secured a piece of Basic White cardstock to my work surface with a little repositionable tape runner, then used Blending Brushes to create some sky – with Crushed Curry near the bottom and Gorgeous Grape in the top potion.
I adhered the finished panel to a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, then adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.
From the middle of a piece of Celebrate Everything DSP (remember that this is a Host selection from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog!), I used the outer window die from Scary Silhouettes to cut the hole.
Then I adhered it over the top of the stenciled panel with Liquid Glue.
I used the same Scary Silhouette die – plus the detailed die that nests inside it, to cut a Gorgeous Grape decorated window frame. Using Liquid Glue, I adhered it inside the opening on the card front.
I used five of the bat dies and the house silhouette die from Scary Silhouettes to cut out the shapes. Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the house and the three smallest bats. I used Black Stampin’ Dimensional pieces to adhere the two large bats to the frame.
I stamped the Scary Cute sentiment in Versamark Ink on a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and sprinkled it with white Embossing Powder. Then I heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.
When the embossing powder was cool, I used Paper Snips to cut each word. Then I adhered them to the card front with Black Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a few Gorgeous Grape Glossy Dots and the card front was done.
On the inside, I stamped a second Scary Cute sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I added some bats from the set in Gorgeous Grape.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into the inside of the Basic Black card base and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Gorgeous Grape bats from Scary Cute on the front…
…and more of the Celebrate Everything DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! How cute…dare I say….SCARY CUTE!??!…is this bundle? I love that fun cut out from the bundled Scary Silhouette dies, don’t you!? And the Aspen Tree die made for a very cool stencil – I slid it inside the pocket with the die set so I can use it again in the future! I also don’t want you to miss getting a pack of the Celebrate Everything DSP – it really covers nearly every occasion for which you might need a card! Individual or workshop orders over $150 will make you eligible to pick it up – you might consider scooping up that last slot in my Online Host Club – that’s a sure-fire way to be able to get this pack and more! 🙂
