Today’s post is one of many of my Halloween designs using the Toil and Trouble DSP #147531 from Stampin Up. I paired it with the now retired Frightening Feline. I made this card for my feline loving friends. All my Halloween cards this year were done using the Toil and Trouble DSP because I did not like any of the other Halloween offerings from Stampin Up.

As we all know Cammie has pretty much gotten the brayering technique down to a science. She recently came to Ohio and had a brayering workshop to teach the fundamentals and then afterwards we had a “private” practice session where she and I had sister time and brayered card panels. We then challenged each other to finish the cards our style. My finished card is on the far left and Cammie’s is the one to the immediate left. My approach was more simplistic layering and Cammie’s included way more embellishments. The card panel was brayered and then stamped using the now retired Stampin Up Frightening Feline single stamp and the tree limb is from the Take Care #126312 stamp set from the Stampin Up annual catalog.
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.
Today’s card is was sent to me via email from our blogging friend Yvonne Crook. She used a simple brayer technique with a mask to create the moon and she created a realistic brick wall to set her hand cut cat on. The cat is a single stamp called Frightening Feline #128105 from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. What a sweet way to showcase this kitty cat!
