Hi everyone.  I have a fall themed card using spring release dies and stamp set.  Just by changing up the colors of leave dies and stamp sets you can use it for fall time as well.

Boo Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_2732

Hello everyone!  Today I have a cute Halloween card for you.

I started with a white cardstock panel, and used a blender brush to add a light touch of Vintage Photo Distress ink to the background.

Next I die cut all my elements:

  • Black cardstock was used for the Haunted House, Fence, Bats and the word "Boo".
  • Ghosts were die cut from white cardstock
  • Pumpkin from orange cardstock
  • Moon from yellow cardstock

IMG_2734

To assemble the card, I glued down the moon first, the Haunted House next.  Then I tucked the ghosts behind the house and glued the fence in place.  The pumpkin was glued in front of the fence.  

The word Boo was cut apart from the "Boo to You" die cut and glued in place underneath the fence.

Then I glued the bats to the card front.

I adhered the card front to a black mat and used foam tape to glue it to a white cardstock mat.  This was adhered to an orange cardstock mat and glued to a white card base.

That's it for today!  I hope you have a Happy Halloween!!!

Set the scene for Halloween with dies from our Fall '22 and Christmas '22 Collections.  Turn the Christmas '22 Celeste Plate upside-down for a spooky Halloween look with new fall dies.  I see a field of creatures in orderly columns and rows.   Do you see them?

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another Halloween idea for a year that's gone by so quickly.  

Prep the Celeste Plate by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the diecut bits and pieces.  Cut it from black cardstock.  Attach it to an orange top-folded A2 Card.

Cut the Nested Globe layers from black cardstock and the dark orange 6x6 sheet in the Sunny Orange Collection.

Cut Rickety House from 6x6 sheets in the Earth Neutral Collection.  Cut a piece of the yellow 6x6 in the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad for the windows and door.

Cut the fence - from the Rickety House set - from a light orange 6x6 in the Sunny Orange Collection.

The bat and ghosts are from the Haunted Entrance Globe Layer die set.  Cut them from white cardstock and Black Glossy Paper (it's cardstock).  

Cut Boo Posh Script from black cardstock and a soft orange sheet in the Sunny Orange Collection.  Assemble the greeting - then attach the little ghosts.  

Attach everything to an orange notecard.  

Have fun with your Halloween designs...anything goes at Halloween time!

Halloween Popup Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have an easy Halloween scene card featuring the new Ghost in the Forest die as a frame to highlight a spooky sky.

Frame:

Die cut the Ghosts in the Forest frame die from an A2 size black paper panel.  Die cut the ghosts from the same set out of white card stock. Cut 2 strips of black card stock to 1" x 5/1/2".  Score each strip at the 1/4" make, flip over and score at the 1/2" mark  and flip back over again and score at the 3/4" mark. Fold the strips with the score marks like an accordion. Glue the 2 strips on either side of the frame, setting something heavy so they stay in place while the glue dries.

A2923F3E-36D8-4A4E-AC7B-0EEF37FAB6BD_1_201_a

Background:

Ink blend Distress Oxide ink Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Dusty Concord on a white A2 size panel.  Splatter with water and dry off with a towel. Die cut the Rickety House die out of Kraft Woodgrain Paper. For the roof and door die cut again out of black card stock.  Use your finger to rub on Distress Oxide Walnut Stain ink over the Woodgrain house die cut.  Glue on the roof to the house.  Trim down the lightest yellow from the Sunny Orange paper pad to fit behind the house and adhere.  Glue on the door over the yellow paper. Line up the house on the background panel with the frame. Draw in a path to the door using a black color pencil.  Adhere the house to the background panel.

The new Forest Path from our Christmas 2022 Collection is quickly becoming a Design Team favorite.  It's great for frosty winter scenes like Sara's and Trina's.  Add wide-eyed ghosts from the Ghosts in the Forest set - and it's a Halloween card too!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here sharing a fall scene with a combo from our Fall and Christmas Collections.

Prep the Forest Path die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the tiny offcuts around the treetops.  Cut it from black cardstock.

Cut a piece of the dark gray/brown Earth Neutral 6x6 to fit behind the black diecut and attach it.  It's either an old country road winding thru the woods - or a muddy stream after a fall rainstorm.   Attach it to a top-folded dark orange A2 card.

Cut the ghosts from the Ghosts in the Forest set.  Love their faces!  Attach them to the background with foam tape.

Cut Boo Posh Script from black cardstock and the bright yellow-green Lush Green Collection 6x6.

Use a hard rubber brayer and frayed burlap Distress Oxide ink to highlight the texture of Kraft Woodgrain Paper.  Dry the ink and diecut Rickety House - just the main section, not the roof section.  Cut the roof from the dark brown Earth Neutral 6x6.  Cut a scrap of the yellow glittered Twinkling Jewel 6x6 for a sparkly door and windows.

Gated and Ghosted Creepy Cabin Happy Halloween
by Anne Thompson

I've got an extra post this week and decided to make one more Halloween card before I switch gears and start creating for the December holidays.  The Creepy Cabin sits behind the Fancy Gate while Ghosts in the Forest swirl around.  I think my grandsons will like this one!

IMG_3883-ink

to make this card

  • start with a white notecard
  • cut the CREEPY CABIN 94634 in the center of a piece of BLACK GLOSSY PAPER SH44004; trim it with one of the larger rectangles from RECTANGLE BASICS SET 30086 (or trim with your paper cutter 5 1/4 X 4)
  • add scraps of orange paper behind the cabin windows and door
  • add a scrap of a coral plaid paper from MADRAS PLAID CORAL AND GREEN PP1013 behind the cabin cut-out
  • attach the finished cabin panel to the front of the notecard
  • cut the FANCY GATE GLOBE 94623 from another piece of the Black Glossy Paper and attach it over the cabin, bending the side hinges a bit for more dimension
  • cut the background HAPPY HALLOWEEN POSH SCRIPT 94585 from a scrap of orange paper and the detailed lettering from a scrap of the coral plaid paper; glue them together and place at the top of the card where it will overlap the top of the gate a tiny bit
  • cut three of the small ghosts from GHOSTS IN THE FOREST 94622 using white glitter paper from the MAJESTIC HUES GLITTER PAD GP1008; add them to the front against the black paper with dimensional foam dots

Happy Crafting!

Beautiful Moments Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_2428

Hello everyone!  Today's card features the new STAMPtember stamp set from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp.  

MEMORY BOX_STAMPtember 2022_exclusives

For my card today I decided to use the Simon Hurley Circle Stamping Foam.  When you stamp into the heated foam you get the negative image of your stamp.  There are many videos to show you how to use the stamping foam.

IMG_2447

I heated the foam with my heat tool for about 20 seconds and then pressed it into my stamp.  Next, I lightly rubbed my ink pads over the foam, misted it with water and then stamped my image onto white cardstock.  

I trimmed my cardstock, mounted it to a black cardstock mat and used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.  

I die cut the largest Knotted Circle die from gold metallic cardstock and glued it around my printed circle.

I die cut the words from the same gold cardstock and glued them to the black cardstock shadow die cut. 

IMG_2429

To finish the card, I added some Autumn Fairy Crystals.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Two Cards with Starry Collage & Wild Spiral
by Angie Cimbalo

Main BF

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with two fun cards using goodies from the fall release. Here are the new dies I used for today's card:

Starry Collage 94631
Wild Spiral 94629

I also used the previously released Geometric Crystals embossing folder 1016EF and the Sylvan Butterfly 94577.

Here's another look at my card:

BF close

I used watercolor card stock and smooshed lots of Distress oxide inks and after it dried I used it to die cut the stars, butterfly background and I also cut 2 spirals out of it.

I used the 2 swirls that I cut from the watercolor smooshed cards and backed them in white card that had been embossed with embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Big & Little Words stamp set, stamped in black in on white card. Here's another look:

The butterfly background was cut from the same watercolor card and the top of the butterfly was cut with black card. I added blue tiny gems from the Christmas Jewels set. The card base was made by taking a mini slimline card and cutting it to 3" by 5.5" and I added a diagonal black card piece to give it more interest. Here's one more look:

Here's one last look at card #1:

BF 3

Now on to card #2:

Main star

I save one panel of watercolor smooshed card that I cut the swirl out of to be my card's background. I backed the opening of the swirl with black card and then added the whole panel to an A2 card base. Next I added layers stars, black and watercolor, randomly around the card. The sentiment is from Big and Little Words stamp set heat embossed in white on black card. I really like the way this turned out, it almost looks like a cartoon drawing!

Here's one last look:

I hope you like my card for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween Easel
by Trina Pham

3BDE9DBA-771C-44E8-9C6A-72601451F0CF

Hello there.  I can’t get enough of these adorable ghosts, so I had to use them again but this time for a Halloween easel card.


Started by die cutting a moon mask with a Circle Basics die and attached it to an A2 size Bristol panel.  Using blender brushes, ink blended Speckled Egg, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress inks for the sky.  Splattered with diluted black and white gouache paints for some texture.

2D79E8ED-12C5-4CEC-84A5-1049E25F8152

The Fancy Gate Globe was then die cut twice from black cardstock.  Trimmed off the arches on both; on one of them, cut in half and cut away the gate details.  Adhered them together like so to create a fence with the gate.  Great way to stretch your supplies. 😉

2E699E96-1270-436D-9028-A0D99049383B
 
Next, die cut the Woodgrain Tree Trunk from black cardstock and the ghosts from white.  Added shading to the moon and ghosts with Copic Sketch markers, then assemble the scene onto the panel.  The right ghost was popped up with foam adhesive for dimension.  Spritz the entire panel with a shimmer spray for some sparkle (sorry couldn’t capture it in the photos).

5AA28C96-EAF4-4587-B93D-114B701A664D

To create the easel base, scored the front of an A2 size top folding card base at 2.75” and adhered the panel to the bottom half below the scored line.  The Happy Halloween Posh Script sentiment with shadow was then die cut from white and navy cardstock to be used as the stopper.  Here’s a side view of it all propped up.

And here’s the view from the front.

And that is it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.
