I Vant You

Here is the 2nd post for Halloween and boy does it scream Halloween and is Fang-tastic.  Cammie made this spooky card for her Halloween cards this year.  She thought it was a simple concept until she had to punch, then shape and stain 12 teeth per card but oh is it worth the effort.  The fangs were punched using the Blossom Builder  #121808 and the Bird Builder #117191 punches from the Stampin Up Annual catalog.  Each tooth was meticulously cut to form the tooth and then stained with cherry cobbler ink.  The I Vant was done in MDS and the U was stamped using the Morning Post Alphabet stamp set #126592.

So we vant you to have a happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! Today is my all time favorite Holiday and so I want to treat you all to 2 posts today.  Yes 2 spectacular punch art cards- Mine and then later today Cammie’s devine Halloween card will be sure to delight you.

But until then I would like to introduce you to Jack.  I love how he turned out and continue to amaze myself with how a simple stamp- free card can have such an impact.  When I created my Jack from punches I  knew this would be my favorite of the bunch until I got Cammie’s Halloween card in the mail.  Stay tuned later today for another post.  I promise it is not a trick!

Faux Paint Chip Frankie

Just to add more stress to my life, and 4 card designs were not enough I decided to create a new design just for Cammie.  I was inspired by paint chips and made my own out of 3 shades of green to create this cute little monster complete with a rick rack mouth!  I think Cammie will like it since the card matches her Halloween Monster Munchie treats.

Bootie Call

By now my friends and family should be receiving their Halloween cards.  I think I get worse every year and send out so many Halloween cards.  This year I mailed 48 cards.  Today’s card is one of my 4 major designs and it features the Bootiful Occasions stamp set #126597 from the Stampin Up Annual Catalog.  When I first saw the Bootiful stampset I knew I had to order and knew I would be using it for Halloween.  I layered the boot on the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet #126999 die.  Background was created with various colors and sizes  of circles to match the polka dots in the boot.

You ARRRH treasured

 I saw this card on a blog and sketched it out and knew I wanted to recreate it for my dear friend Ken for his birthday.  The sentiment inside (non- Stampin Up) says Ahoy Matey… Your ARRRH treasured.  This expression truly fits the friendship that I have with Ken and his lovely wife Sue so I created this card just for him.  The pirates head and mustache is cut from the top note die #113463.  The eye patch, his eye and the earring are cut from various circle punches, the nose is from the Owl builder punch #118074.  I used the 3 1/2 inch circle to get the general shape of the head scarf and then fussy cut it from a piece of scrap retired Under the Big Top DSP.  I added a piece of bakers twine to attach the patch and finished it with a piece of bling for the earring.

This card could also be used as a cute Halloween card or an invite to a come as you aren’t party!  I hope Ken likes this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  If he does not, he’ll just have to walk the plank!

Frightening Feline

 Today’s second  post is one of my 4 designs of Halloween cards.  This card features all things Halloween from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  The DSP is from the fabulous Howlstooth & Scaringbone Collection #126906.  I am a sucker for Halloween DSP but seriously this year Stampin Up came up with a collection that rocks.  Love the stripes, chevrons, plaids and polka dots in one collection.  The stamped image is from the single stamp Frightening Feline #128105,  the bow is from the 1/2 ” Striped Satin Ribbon #127837 and the eyes are rhinestones .  The details on this card are what I think makes this card.  I embossed the Feline in Tangerine Tango embossing powder on black card stock that was cut out from the Window Frames Framelits #129021 and then finished it by using the coordinating piercing templates from the Festive Piercing Pack #127857.    This card turned out so cute and I can contribute that to how all the  Stampin Up products work together.
