Spooky Night Halloween for Global Design Project 104
Today I am playing along with Global Design Project 104: Case the Designer! The talented Allison Okamitsu is front and center this month and I love the card she created! She created her own background paper by stamping ‘For A Great’ stamp from the Lovely Inside & Out Clear-Mount Stamp Set. I decided to do the same with the ‘Happy Halloween’ stamp from the Spooky Cat Photopolymer Stamp Set, newly released from the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog!
I have to say, my ‘Happy Halloween’s are not as perfectly straight and spaced as Allison’s ‘For a Great’ (she did a fabulous job), but I don’t think they have to be…it adds character and shows that it was done by hand. I did want it to be a tad lighter than Pumpkin Pie is when you stamp in full force, so prior to stamping on the Very Vanilla Cardstock, I stamped on a my Grid Paper to lighten it.
- Card Base is Very Vanilla Cardstock cut to 4 1/4 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5 1/2 in.
- 2nd Layer is Very Vanilla Cardstock cut to 4 in x 5 1/4 in. I stamped ‘Happy Halloween’ from the Spooky Cat Stamp Set several times with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink, stamping on Grid Paper prior to stamping on the Vanilla. It was adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- I took a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Spooky Night DSP Pack and cut a strip to 1 1/2 in x 12 in. I scored it at every 1/4 in with the Simply Scored Tool, then folded every other direction. I glued the two ends together and then pushed it together in the shape of the circle to create the rosette. I adhered the rosette to the 2nd Layer with several strips of Tear Tape.
- The Wicked Yummy Treat For You was stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Then quickly cropped with the coordinating Every Day Label Punch. It was adhered to the rosette with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- I used the stamp that looks like lined washi tape with Pumpkin Pie Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. The Happy Halloween and Mouse were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Very Vanilla. Both were snipped out with the Paper Snips. I glued two pieces of Vintage Crochet Trim to the bottom of the ‘washi tape’ prior to adhering it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- I cut a Witch Hat from a piece of DSP, added Black Metallic Thread behind it prior to adhering it.
- I finished the card off with adding Black Rhinestone Jewels to the hat and label punched ends.
I wanted the Medium Very Vanilla envelope to coordinate with the card so I added another Witch Hat cropped from the DSP and also added a Black Rhinestone Jewel to the middle of the hat band.
