Batty For You Flamingo, Basic Gray and Basic Black Card for #tgifc333 Sketch Challenge Stesha Bloodhart

TGIF! It’s time for a sketch challenge! 

Today, the TGIF Challenges Design Team is showcasing projects using the sketch shown below. 

I have been pinning over those adorable bats on the Cute Halloween 6×6 Designer Series Paper. I love the colorful graphics with this paper and that they made the opposite side black and white.  It is one of my FAV Halloween Papers that Stampin’ Up! has released.

Be the funhouse this Halloween: Turn ho-hum trick-or-treat sweets into a delectable surprise with Frightfully Cute Bundle. This bundle includes the Frightfully Cute Stamp Set and the Frightful Tags Dies. Mix and match stamped images with die-cut shapes and tag pieces. Images are sized perfectly to fit on small chocolate bars or other sweets for trick-or-treaters.

Use the images on their own, or layer them to create a Halloween scene. Have fun mixing up the sentiments whether you’re feeling punny or you want to go for a more traditional Halloween greeting—this set has it all! Bold images make it easy to stamp in a single color, or stamp with VersaMark ink for a tone-on-tone look. Keep tags simple, or if you’re feeling fancy, add ribbons and embellishments until your project is frightfully cute.

Create cute Halloween-themed tags and paper embellishments with the Frightful Tags Dies. This die set includes tag pieces and traditional Halloween imagery that can be mixed and matched for endless options. Layer the tree, stars, and fence images to create a small Halloween landscape. The owl image looks cute perched in the tree or on the fence. Or use the images on their own for simple tags. Some dies include embossed details, giving the die-cut piece more depth and dimension. The owl piece embosses some feathers, the tree embosses some bark details, and the hat embosses a buckle and some shading.

Begin with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock.  Score at 2 1/4 and 6 3/8.  Fold both towards the center of the card (gatefold). 

Adhere a 4 7/8 x 3 5/8 piece of Basic Gray Cardstock to a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Adhere to the top gatefold flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Cut three 3/4 x 4 7/8 pieces of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock.  Adhere to the Basic Gray 1/2 inch in from the side, then 3/4 between each strip. 

Use the brush end of a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to flick/splatter color onto the card. 

Use the Frightful Tags circle die, along with a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop both a Basic Black and a Basic White piece of cardstock. 

Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto the white circle die-cut. Adhere together and to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Stamp the sentiment to the bottom inside flap of the gatefold. 

Cut a 1 x 11 strip of Basic Black Cardstock.  Wrap around the card base as shown, creating a belly band.  Note: they will not connect together. 

Crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with the Seasonal Labels Die (1 7/8 x 3 3/8) & Ribbon Slots Die. Thread Black & White Gingham Ribbon through the die-cut slots and around the belly band.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right-center and left-center sides (you do not want to add dimensionals to the area that will contain the opening of the belly band; the belly band needs to slide).  Adhere to the belly band. Secure the ribbon with a bow. 

Crop a piece of Basic White card stock with the 2 1/8 x 2 3/8 Seasonal Labels Die. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use Paper Snips Scissors to cut the bat images from the Cute Halloween 6×6 Designer Series Paper.  Adhere all as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue (small bat on the circle die-cut cannot be popped up).

Embellish with Matte Black Dots.
