HAPPY HALLOWEEN and Prize winners announced!!

Eeeeeee it's my FAVORITE day of the year!

Have you seen all the cool 6x6 patterned paper packs Whimsy Stamps has been releasing?! They've been super popular and make it super easy for quick handmade cards.

 For today's card I'm using one of my favorite sheets from the Haunted paper pack. I simply cut the portion of the paper image I liked best and adhered it to a black card base. The card is almost done (lol).

Then I added a strip of black glitter washi tape across the bottom.

I used the Halloween Postage clear stamp set to stamp the "BOO" and hand cut it out then used a foam dot to pop it up next to the owl.

I used the largest of the two fences from the Build-a-Grave die set, and glued it to the corner. Then I stamped the little tombstone also from the Halloween Postage set, hand cut it out and adhered it to the front to complete my card.

 So many of the Whimsy Stamps patterned papers have awesome scenes on them that can help make your cardmaking a breeze! Check 'em out...what's your favorite?

I hope you have a hauntingly, frightfully, and fun Halloween!! Be sure to check out the Whimsy Stamps blog at 6pm EST for tonight's announcement of all the winners from our Annual 31 Nights of Halloween blog celebration. 
Good luck every BODY!

Haunted Mansion Slimline

WELCOME Foolish Mortals to the Haunted Mansion...I could totally live there!

I used the Slimline Scallop Peekaboo die and cut that out from black card stock, I also used the smallest die from the Slimline Birthday Scallops die to cut out the center of the peekaboo layer.

I used my paper trimmer and cut out the portion of Haunted paper that I wanted to show through the opening. It wasn't quite long enough so I used another portion of the same sheet of paper and added it at the bottom portion. You can't even tell it was pieced together at all.

I used the Spooky Large Word die and cut that out of heavy vellum

Then just cut off the web portion and tucked it in the upper left corner.

I die cut the Haunted Words from a lavender cardstock 3 times each and stacked/glued them together to give them more stability and dimension.

I also added the same lavender card stock behind the X's that cut out from the Slimline Scallop Peekaboo die. I love those little X's on this die, it's funny how such a small detail can make such a big difference. 

To complete my project, I matted onto a purple slimline card base, and popped up the Slimline Scallop Peekaboo frame with foam tape and added the Haunted Words last.

If you can't get enough Halloween card making ideas you won't want to miss the Whimsy Stamps annual 31 Nights of Halloween celebration going on every night in October. Check it out HERE.

Slimline Vampire Graveyard

For today's post I have a slimline Halloween card that combines two of my favorite things, haunted stuffs and vampire stuffs, love me some wolves too... 

To start out I cut a black Slimline Wonky Windows and will use just the frame portion. (save the inside pieces to cut out your word and wolf).

Then I lined up the Slimline Wonky Window die on the Vampire paper, paying attention to where I wanted it to cut out the designs. It's so cool because the openings on the die lined up perfectly with the house, and graveyard scene on the paper...how cool is that?! 
I set aside the frame, and vampire paper pieces to work on the card base.

For the card base, I punched a circle out of a post-it note and stuck it on a white slimline card base where I wanted my "moon" to be. Then I sponged on dark grey ink (black inks works too) over the moon mask and in the white window areas. Once I had the inking to my liking, I removed the moon mask and dabbed a little more grey ink across the moon so it wasn't so stark.

The upper right piece of Vampire paper is larger than the frame opening so I was sure to glue that piece on BEFORE gluing the black slimline frame on top of it. Once The black frame was in place I glued the other two Vampire paper pieces inside their applicable window openings.  

I used the Haunted Words die set and cut out "Haunted" 3 times from grey card stock, and "Graveyard" 3 times from black card stock. I almost always glue/stack my word dies 3-4 times to give them stability and extra dimension.

For the inside (which I think could actually be a card front too), I cut a strip of black card stock and glued it to the bottom. 
I used another piece of a different design from the Vampire papers and glued that to the inside. 
Then sponged on some grey/black ink on the sides, and added two of the large fences from the Build-a-Grave die set (one of my favs of the season).

To complete my card I used the wolf from the Monster Parade die set (another item on my favorites list this year) and die cut that from black card stock black and added red cardstock behind his eye. 

I hope you enjoyed today's post and don't forget that Whimsy Stamps is celebrating our 31 Nights of Halloween event every single night in October over on the Whimsy Blog. Be sure to check it out every night at 6pm...there are several special guests, and lots of prizes to be given away too!
