A Week of Making Spirits Bright - Halloween

While intending to work on my Christmas cards, I realized I have two Halloween camps coming up with nothing prepped.  Now our awesome Paper Pumpkin kit is Halloween themed and I'm posting those projects next week.  But I really needed to use the other Halloween products that I bought before realizing that kit would work for everything!

Next Thursday is my Halloween wreath class and it's also World Cardmaking "Week" from Stampin' Up!  So we have to make a card, right?

I couldn't find a layout so again I went to my sketch folder that I haven't been tapping and realized that there would be a new Mojo Monday sketch that might inspire me.

I really like the "Bring on the Boos" as it makes me think of my daughter and how she puts a sheet over her head and runs up and screams "Boo" like the least scary ghost ever. It also reminds me of all those Halloween parties with friends from college.  No need to tell more stories than that since those that were there know exactly what I mean!   Since this card is for my fun-loving wine drinking crafters, I thought this was a great card for them to make after they work on their wreaths.



Supplies:
  • Cardstock/DSP: Motlley Monsters DSP, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Basic Black, Sahara Sand
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Pad
  • Stamp Set: Making Spirits Bright
  • Accessories: White Stampin' Chalk Marker, Hexagon Punch, White & Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim, Brights Candy Dots, Dimensionals, Scissors, and Adhesive
Couple of things on this card:
  • The white and tangerine tango trim is easy to separate.  If you do, you can tie it and have it flat on a card so it's easier to mail.  Plus it looks cool.
  • Don't forget that you can use the hexagon punch to make those banner ends.
  • Chalk markers work for more than just black cardstock.  If you want a solid white accent, you can't beat this tool.  And it's only $3.50.
