Stampin’ Up! Spooky Halloween Scenes

Mornin’ y’all – welcome to Tuesday.  I’ve got no Finn pics today – we spent yesterday working and playing and I didn’t pull my camera out once!  It’s hard to catch him on the move and he was doing a lot of moving!

We’ve started letting him off the leash a little more when we’re at the barn and down in the arena.  He’s learning to follow or run ahead of the golf cart.  He’s pretty cute – we’ll get done playing ball and head back to the house.  When we get to the horse trough, he makes it quite obvious he’s going to leap off – so we stop.  Pretty good people-trainer, huh?  Then he puts his front paws on the side of the trough and drinks and drinks.

And then we’re allowed to go! 🙂

So, my card today is a Halloween card.  Just in case you didn’t surmise that from the title of the post!  And it’s a fast one – so it’s pretty perfect.  I used the Spooky Fun stamp set, some Halloween Scenes Edgelits, and the Halloween Scares stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I played along with two challenges on this one.  The first, from The Paper Players, inspired the layout.

And the second is a photo inspiration challenge from Just Us Girls.

I started with a panel of Elegant Eggplant and stamped the black cat from the Halloween Scares stamp set all over it in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then I SNAILd it to a mat of Pumpkin Pie card stock.   The next layer is a piece of Halloween Night DSP, SNAILd on Pumpkin Pie and then to the card front.

Next up is a harvest moon, cut with the Circles Layering Framelits from a piece of Crushed Curry card stock.  I cut the black tree with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits and adhered it over the Crushed Curry moon with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, then SNAILd it to the card front.

For my sentiment, I stamped Happy Halloween from the Spooky Fun stamp set in Elegant Eggplant on Whisper White and SNAILd it to a Pumpkin Pie mat.  Then I popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped another Basic Black Archival Ink cat from Halloween Scares on Whisper White and fussy cut him.  His tail was a little persnickety, but I held my tongue just right between my teeth (on the left side – not the right!) and got it done.  Then I adhered him with a little Liquid Glue.  The final touch was a few Silver stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I stamped the moon from Spooky Fun in Crushed Curry on a Whisper White panel and then stamped the Spooky Fun sentiment over that in Elegant Eggplant.  While I had the Elegant Eggplant out, I stamped a couple more cats in the corner.

I SNAILd the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Elegant Eggplant card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Elegant Eggplant Spooky Fun cats across the front – and I added a strip of the Hallowen Night DSP, too – just for ducks…

…and then added more of the DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Quick, easy and super spooky, right?  I mean….black cats everywhere!  Okay – I don’t really believe all that black cat hooey.  Good thing since I’ve got two of them, huh!?  But, they look good and spooky paired up with a craggy black Halloween Scenes tree in front of a harvest Halloween moon!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Spooky, Batty Halloween Fun for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop. We have a sketch challenge this week – and it was a wild one – took me a minute to come up with an idea for this one, folks!  It’s our first hop with the Holiday Catalog LIVE – so everything that everyone uses today….you’ll be able to buy!  Holiday Catty or Annual….all of it’s up for grabs!  Be sure to check out all our hoppers today, okay?

Here’s the sketch we were all working from:

I might have gotten a little jiggy with our challenge this week! I wanted to do a Halloween card with new Holiday Catalog goodies, so I picked the Spooky Fun stamp set with its bundled Halloween Scenes Edgelits.  And I snagged a few batty images from Halloween Scares.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Spooky Fun Halloween Treat!

Good morning!  Hope your Tuesday is looking like it’ll be a good one.  We’ve got the vet coming for the yearly shots and teeth exams and physicals for the horses.  They love when the vet comes.

Sure – and little kids love going to the doctor!  He uses lollipops (or – do they still do that or is everyone too afraid of sugar!?) and I use peppermints.  Yes – they can all be bought with peppermints.  I can call them up in the middle of the day and they’ll come a-runnin’.  Cuz my policy is to alwaysALWAYS – give them a peppermint when they come in.  And I give them a peppermint when they’re all done!

Mary Poppins used a spoonful of sugar – it’s the same idea!

Bribery is a valid form of persuasion! 🙂

For today’s project,  I decided this would be a good time for a Halloween card.  I don’t know why – I just did!  So I used a few new sets from the Holiday Catalog – Spooky Fun, Halloween Scares and the a la carte stamp called Halloween Treat – which is just the cutest image!

I combined all these sets with….some By The Shore DSP! I know – a bit unexpected, but…well, take a look-see:
