The Haunting of Hill House

Here's another favorite of mine from the Whimsy Stamps Halloween collection, the Slimline Hill House die coupled with the 6x6 Vampire papers, and a borrowed lamp post from the Elvira die set too.

Pretty much everything released this season, works together one way or's my favorite Halloween release EVER!

I cut the Slimline Hill House once from black card stock, once from yellow card stock, and once from grey card stock. I could have not cut the grey one and just let the grey color of the card base to show through but I think it gives a more finished look with the road piece sponged and put inside the opening.

I laid the house on top of the Vampire paper and used a pencil to draw around the curvy edge, then used scissors to cut it out then glued it to the card base.

I sponged some black ink on the road and glued that into place.  And also glued the yellow pieces inside their applicable windows and door openings. Normally I just add card stock to the back of a die cut when I want a different color in the openings but I got ahead of myself and glued the house to the card before I did that. Can you saaaaay Goooober 😜?!

I used the Elvira die set for the lamp post and sponged on some white ink to just the right edge, I like how that makes it looks like the moon light is reflecting on it. 

I almost always add a sentiment to the front of my cards but in this case I thought it looked better without one, so I called it done.

Don't forget to check out all the Halloween FUN happening on the Whimsy Stamps blog this month while we celebrate our annual 31 Nights of Halloween blog party! LOTS of special guests, prizes, and Halloween card making inspiration!

  1. Deb, I like the tip about the white ink on the post for a moon glow effect! New to trick to have in my aresonal.😊
    I think this is the best Halloween release ever too! In fact my husband said my Halloween 🎃 cards are getting a lot better! Ha ha ha, so that is due to all the Whimsy products I keep buying!!!! Ha hahhhhaaaahahahahahaaaaaa!
    I like this slimline die of hill house, but I confess it is hard to keep all the little pieces together! How do you do it? I am having a bit of trouble keeping it together! Enjoyed your post! Crafty hugs!

  2. Cool beans Liz, I'm glad you learned a new tip! Too funny your hubby commented that way LOL, tell him I said thank you :)! Oh you don't need to keep the tiny pieces together, I shared another tip in the wording of this can just add cardstock to the back of the openings instead of piecing the tiny parts back inside their openings. I just failed to do that before I glued it down so I had to use the tiny pieces. Hope that helps?! XO
