Gettin’ ready … Halloween is just around the corner!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

A bit of a chill in the air this morning in Wisconsin … almost feels like fall.  Which brings me to our card today – Halloween.

For those of you who have been stampin’ with me awhile, you know that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!  I think it’s just fun, and I love seeing kids dressed up… makes for so many wonderful memories!

Today’s card is wishing you a Halloween Hello from the stamp set “Halloween Hello” found in the Holiday Catalog on page 21.  There a so many cute stamps included in this set, but I chose the bats for this one.  I’m OK with bats as long as they are on my cards and NOT in my house!  Ewwww… the stories I could tell.

This card as quite easy to make, begin with the Masking Technique, then sponge on the color.  I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and Basic Black.  I did stamp the bats with the Black StazOn (my favorite black ink).

Hope you can see the “glitter” on the bats… Oh my, Stampin’ Up! has glitter for us Halloween fanatics!   You get both the Black and Orange Ultrafine Glitters!   I think my bats may have turned out better (glitter wise) if I had used the Heat & Stick powder … but, I actually stamped my bats first and then masked and sponged.

I stamped the Halloween Hello greeting from my mask… love the clear stamps for that!  Then put the mask in the 1″ circle punch and punched it smaller.  I used the 1-1/4 circle punch again (original mask size – for moon) and punched a Pumpkin Pie mat for the greeting.

Couldn’t make a card without some noticeable texture, so a added a touch of pumpkin pie under the stamped piece and embossed it with the Woodgrain folder.
