A Spooky Little Peek into the Holiday Catalog …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today a I have a spooky little Halloween card from the Holiday Catalog. I’m featuring the Toil & Trouble Product Suite on pages 48 and 49. Today’s card highlights the Cauldron Bubbles Designer Series paper and the “Sponging” technique and has a fun little twist!

First … let’s start with our designer paper, grab the pattern with the bats on, bring over the Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, and Night of Navy ink pads and some sponges.  Wait … I have another technique for you! Masking!! You will need your 1-1/4″ Circle punch.

First you will use the paper that you punched the hole from and align it onto your cardstock so you can sponge yourself a moon.  Now take the circle you punched out, add a touch of removable adhesive (so your mask comes back off) and place it over you moon on your batty paper.

Once your moon is done and you have placed your mask over the top … you can begin sponging your Gorgeous Grape around the sky.  The fun part is … your bats are already there.  Now I added some Night of Navy to create a deeper nighttime color.  I also sponged a little color over the moon to create a spooky little effect.

Now I’m sure you noticed that the bats were flying high about the houses … I love the silhouette look that using the die cuts from the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.  Who said it just had to be used on Christmas cards! I like to cross-over a lot of my stamping supplies – gives me the best value for my buck!

Sponging creates so much dimension on your card and it’s so simple to create. The greeting comes from the Cauldron Bubbles stamp set and was cut out with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  Wow … that at that, you just created this really cute card in minutes.

Thank you for hanging out and stamping with me today.

Make today a good one … enjoy.

    • Thank You Bernice, I’m glad you like it. It really is as simple as it sounds. I sponge in small circular motions so my ink blends nicer. I’d love to see how yours turns out. I appreciate your comment … Have a good day! Linda
