Sneak Peek: Halloween Card Featuring NEW Spooky Cat & Labels to Love


This week we are highlighting new items in the Holiday Catalog that goes live THIS Friday. So excited!!! This card features two different stamp sets and some new patterned paper! The tree image is actually from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and then I stamped the Owl from the Spooky Cat Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Black ink. It matched the tree image on the patterned paper perfectly and then I highlighted the Owl eyes and the Happy Owl-oween sentiment in Whisper White ink over the Basic Black. The Spooky Cat stamp set is part of a bundle and includes an adorable cat punch which I really wanted to include with this card, but it didn’t seem to work. The Owl hat is cut from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper as well. 

The black and white layer behind the Owl is actually Basic Black cardstock and I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Embossing Paste to create some texture. While the Embossing Paste was drying (which only took two minutes, max), I stamped the striped background in Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie paper and stamped the sentiment from another new stamp set, Labels to Love, in Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie as well. I punched out the sentiment with the Everyday Label Punch. So handy to have and with the new stamp set called Labels to Love that works beautifully with the punch and features tags and sentiments for every holiday, it is definitely a must-have! 

After that, it was a matter of putting the card together with a Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock base, a layer of Basic Black, then Pumpkin Pie and Embossed Basic Black and the stamped Owl layer. I used some Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine and the new Vintage Crochet Ribbon to embellish the stamped sentiment and the new Black Rhinestones to embellish the Owl’s hat. So fun to put together and making this card got me super excited for Halloween! 

The new Holiday Catalog comes out this Friday and I will post it online here for you to download or view online. Also, if you would like a copy mailed to you, click here to request one or email me.  I guarantee you will be blown away by the new goodies in this catalog!
