Beware of Black Cats!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another cute Halloween card to share and just in case you missed them yesterday … the Weekly Deals will also be featured.

My card today highlights the fabulous bundle; Happy Scenes stamp set & Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies, and it that isn’t fun enough … I’ve lured the black cat over from the Festive Fireside Framelits too!


I wanted my black cat to be peering out the window on Halloween night, and what would one expect to see but a creepy little spider and a full moon! The full moon was created with the 1-1/4″ circle punch and the masking technique. I sponged on So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Perfect Plum to create my All Hallows Eve effect.

I wanted a nice sturdy house to protect me so I used the “Brick” embossing folder. To create the weathered look of the brick, I simply dragged my VersaMark™ pad across it. So simple but it really creates an awesome effect.


 To complete my card I finished off the inside and wished you all a Happy Halloween! And Many More … is the stamp set my greeting comes from.

Thank you for stopping by my Halloween home and meeting my little black cat!


Here are the weekly deals and below I’ll have the ingredients for today’s card …

Happy Scenes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share with you a post from the Stampin’ Up! Get Inspired blog. When their concept artists or staff writers share awesome cards & projects … I just have to share with you. So please note that the following information is from that blog post …

Window cards are trendy, they’re so much fun to make—and we have everything you need to create one yourself using products from our brand new holiday catalog!



The Happy Scenes Stamp Set (item # 139821) includes 16 photopolymer stamps with autumn/winter landscape images and sayings that are perfect for end-of-the-year holidays. Stamp a little landscape and enclose it in a window frame—which you can make using the Big Shot and our Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies (item # 139666). Instant cuteness! (I borrowed this card idea from p. 11 of the holiday catalog.)


For the Halloween card I included the cat from the Festive Fireplace Stamp Set (item # 139754). He just seemed to fit!

And here’s some great news: when you purchase the Happy Scenes Stamp Set + Hearth and Home Thinlits as a bundle (item # 140853), you save fifteen percent!
