Hello hello! It’s Sunday and I am hoping your weekend is going well. We hit the Farmer’s Market yesterday and got some homemade soup and three chocolate dipped Almond Biscotti that I am trying HARD not to just eateateat!! They are SO stinkin’ good! Oh – and we bought a bag of Arugula – cuz…it IS a FARMER’S market and we tried to be at least a little healthy!
My card today is another Halloween card. I may or may not have said that I was done with Halloween cards but…if I did – I apparently…fibbed. This one combined the Cottage Wreaths bundle (a multi-holiday set) with the Bewitching bundle (a little more…specialized!). Take a look-see;
So – perhaps you noticed that I neglected to take a picture with the Witch Hat Builder Punch in it – but…I DID use it!
The layout for this one is from the current FUSION challenge!
And – the Global Design Project theme challenge is 100% why I ended up doing another Halloween card!! 😉
I started by cutting a 1 5/8″ x 4″ piece of Gingham Cottage DSP – that’s a little larger than the final piece that I needed. Using Highland Heather and Basic Black washi tapes from the Glitter Washi Four Pack – and the Stamparatus Deluxe Foam Mat – I created a lattice on the DSP. It’s kind of like the lattice top on a pie – the video shows you how!
When the lattice was done – I used my Paper Trimmer to trim the panel down to 1 1/2″ x 3 7/8″.
On a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic Black, I adhered the second Gingham Cottage DSP panel (it’s 3 5/8″ x 3 7/8″) to the bottom of the panel. Then I adhered the washi-latticed panel – eyeballing a “normal” mat reveal all the way around.
I wrapped another piece of Highland Heather washi tape around the “seam”, then used the Paper Trimmer again to trim a little from all four edges to create a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ panel. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat to make the card front!
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the wreath from Cottage Wreaths in Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I rotated the stamp a bit and stamped it again in Crushed Curry. I stamped the twig wreath image over top in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
Using the largest Stylish Shapes circle die, I cut out the wreath and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the Bewitching witches hat and the sentiment from Cottage Wreaths in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then I stamped the spider (from Bewitching) in Highland Heather.
I used the Witches Hat Builder Punch to cut out the hat and I fussy cut the sentiment and the spider.
I colored the hat with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I adhered the sentiment and the spider with black Dimensionals as well.
I stamped a piece of Highland Heather cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stars from the Bewitching set, cut out a hat band with the Witch Hat Builder Punch and popped it in place with Black Dimensionals.
I cut out a couple of Basic Black leaves and a white Glimmer Paper bow using the Country Wreaths dies. I colored the bow with my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends and adhered it all with Liquid Glue.
Finally – I colored two small white Classic Matte Dots with the Dark Highland Heather Blend and a large dot with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Blend. I adhered the small dots into the “O’s” in “BOO” and the large one to the center of the bow. And – the card was done!
On the inside, I stamped the twig wreath from Cottage Wreaths in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. Then I added the Highland Heather spider!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Highland Heather card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Cottage Wreaths twig wreath and Bewitching spider on the front…
…and more of the Gingham Cottage DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I have to say I think this is a bit of a fashion-horse witch, don’t you?? Her hat – from the Bewitching set – is a stunner since she added those black leaves and glimmery purple bow from the Country Wreaths Dies! And her hat is the perfect decoration for the Cottage Wreaths wreath she has on her door! And – while it’s in “Halloween Mode” here – the Gingham Cottage DSP gives you paper to cover Thanksgiving, Christmas – really any time of the year!
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
Yesterday we went to the Farmer’s Market – where Finn got LOTS of pettings.
And had to mightily restrain himself from “helping” a bunch of tiny humans with their various cookies and pastries they were eating – RIGHT AT HEAD HEIGHT! 😳😳😳
But he did.
And we were also able to keep all the “friendly” people with their “friendly” dogs away – why does everyone assume that you want your dog to sniff noses and..whatevers…with every Tom, Dick and Fido that is there?? 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
Anywho – then we went to Home Depot for some more pettings (and electrical doohickeys for Wayne).
While we were at it – we practiced a little patience and obedience.
He makes it look so easy, doesn’t he? 😉
Such a cute card! Love the fun design and the colors are perfect for Halloween! So glad that Finn was a good boy…bet that he had to take a long nap when he got home after restraining himself from the eating and the sniffing! 😉
