Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features several products: Sweet Hauntings, Happy Scenes and Hearth & Home thinlits dies.
I have a friend a Halloween card. I wanted something a little more sophisticated…Pinterest was my inspiration. Where else can you go for immediate inspiration? Ok, so I pretty much cased the card. I can’t remember the name of the creator, but it was created by one of Stampin’ Up!’s artisan design team.
I had to modify mine a bit since I didn’t have all the supplies to reproduce the card. I had a brick embossing folder from who knows where or which craft store that I bought who knows when….
I brayered directly onto the embossing folder with Basic Gray ink. Of course this not being a Stampin’ Up! embossing folder; the pattern doesn’t cover my entire sheet of Very Vanilla card stock. That is why my verse is at the bottom. I have a piece of 1/4″ basic black ribbon covering the seam and a small smear mark where I smudged the ink. Hey, haven’t you heard the expression “there are no mistakes, just a chance to embellish”?
I stamped my bottles onto a small piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I colored them with a blender pen and Basic Gray and Smokey Slate ink. I cut the window from Basic Clack card stock using my Big Shot and the Hearth & Home thinlit dies. I used snail to use attach the window over the bottles. I stamped the cutest little spider from Happy Scenes into the corner of the window. He is one spider I am not scared of! I layered my card with Basic Black and put it on a Very Vanilla card base.
I really hope my friend is surprised that I thought of her this Halloween.
