Hello! Welcome to our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for November 2022. I’m so glad you are joining me today! We are a group of Stampin’ Up!

Best Witches for a Happy Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I used to love to sew costumes for my kids. Now I make Halloween cards to send out to everyone.

I had back surgery 4 days ago. For 3 weeks before the surgery I had been confined to my bed due to severe sciatic pain from a herniated disc. I did a lot of coloring during that time and ended up with a lot of witches and frogs from the Best Witches stamp set!

Here is one of the cards I came up with using my witch and frog.

Measurements

  • Parakeet Party cardstock (CS) card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Parakeet Party cs: 1/2 x 5 inches for the stars.
  • Rustic Harvest 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP)-plaid design: 5 x 3 3/4 inches and 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.
  • Basic Black cs: 1/4 x 3 inches for the sentiment.
  • Basic White cs: 3 1/2 x 4 inches for stamping the witch & frog and 4 x 5 1/4 inches for the inside of the card.

Supplies

  • Best Witches stamp set
  • Memento Ink
  • Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in: Parakeet Party, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Freesia, SU800 (skin tone), Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black.
  • Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Versamark Ink
  • White Emboss Powder
  • Heat Tool
  • Glitter Washi Tape
  • Witch Hat Builder Punch
  • Paper Snips
  • ruler
  • Blending Brushes
  • I also used the Scary Cute and Bottled Happiness stamp sets for the sentiments

Instructions

  1. Stamp the images onto the 3 1/2 x 4 inches Basic White cs. Color as desired with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. Fussy cut the witch and frog.

Preparing the Paper

  1. Let’s start by preparing the paper with the Blending Brush and Parakeet Party Ink. Blend the ink onto the Rustic Harvest plaid design on the right hand side in an area where the witch will be. Make the circle large enough to surround the witch. Also blend some Parakeet Party Ink onto the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White cs where you will be stamping the sentiment for the inside of the card. Blend some ink on the middle of the 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch plaid strip.
  2. Use the Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker and a ruler to draw the lines on the Rustic Harvest DSP plaid design. I did not draw the lines all the way through the area that was inked with the Parakeet Party Ink. Also draw some lines with the Bermuda Bay marker on the 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch strip of the plaid paper.

Using the Glitter Washi

  1. Use the Parakeet Party Glitter Washi to cover 2-3 inches of the end of the 1/2 x 5 inch Parakeet Party cs.
  2. Use the Basic Black Glitter Washi to make a box on the front of the Parakeet Party cs card base. The tape is placed 1/4 inch in from the edge.
  3. Use the Witch Builder Punch to cut out the stars.
  4. Complete the inside of the card by adhering the plaid strip to the left side of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White cs and adding a strip of the Parakeet Party Glitter Washi. (see photo of inside of card above).

Finishing Up

  1. Use the Versamark Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the 1/4 x 3 inch Basic Black cs. Sprinkle the White Emboss Powder on top and then shake off the excess. Use the Heat Tool to set the Emboss Powder.
  2. Adhere the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Rustic Harvest plaid onto the card front. The Basic Black Glitter Washi should show around the edges.
  3. Adhere the sentiment.
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the witch and the frog.
  5. Add the stars.
  6. Stamp the inside sentiment in Memento Ink.
  7. Adhere the plaid strip with the Parakeet Party Glitter Washi.
  8. Adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the Parakeet Party cs card base.

Voila! You have a fun Halloween card!

Try other colors.

Try other designs and have fun!

I hope you have a safe and fun Halloween!

Step 1- 3D Technique

  1. Start by using the White Craft Ink pad to drag it across both Shaded Spruce card stock card pieces embossed with the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder. The “before and after” is pictured above. The White Craft Ink really helps the tree design pop! Set aside to dry.

Step 2-Stamping with Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper

  1. Take the center out of both of the Basic White card stock Fabulous Frame die cuts to stamp on.
  2. Use Soft Suede Ink to stamp the “trees for sale” sign on one of the Basic White card stock card pieces. Stamp a sign on a piece of the Masking Paper. (I used a pink sticky note so you could see what I was masking a little better)
  3. Fussy cut the sign from the Masking Paper. Cover the trees for sale sign on the stamped card piece with the Masking Paper sign.
  4. Use Mint Macaron Ink to stamp the solid small and medium sized trees.
  5. Stamp a small tree on the Masking Paper and fussy cut it.
  6. Use Shaded Spruce to stamp the detailed tree on the small tree only.

  2. Remove the Masking Paper from the small tree and the Trees for Sale sign.

Step 4-Stamping the Scene

  2. Stamp some snowflakes and the paw prints in Balmy Blue Ink.
  3. On a scrap of Basic White card stock, stamp the dog in Soft Suede Ink. Use the Stampin’ Write Basic Black Marker to add some eyes, a nose and some spots to the dog. Fussy cut. (I cut the bottom jaw off because my dog did not look right with the jaw on)
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the dog to the scene.
  5. Stamp the sentiment “Christmas Greetings” in Real Red Ink on the 3/4 x 3 inch Basic White card stock strip.

Step 5-Stamping the Inside

  1. On the second Basic White card stock Fabulous Frame die cut, stamp “so very merry” in Real Red Ink.
  2. Stamp the snowflakes in Balmy Blue Ink.

Step 6-Assembling the Inside

  1. Assemble the inside of the card. Adhere one of the Shaded Spruce card stock embossed with the Whimsical Woodland embossing folder to the inside of the Mint Macaron card stock card base.
  2. Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock.
  3. Complete the inside by adhering the Real Red card stock Fabulous Frame die cut.
