Cards - Halloween & Fall

Cute Halloween Color Challenge Card

Hello!  Thanks for checking out my post today!  I have a color challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 688.  We are using Pumpkin Pie, Flirty Flamingo, and Highland Heather.

CCMC688

I'm going to tell you that these are not my colors.  I don't like them together.  With this said, here is my card.  It is kind of cute!

CCMC #688 Cute Halloween DSP  Blends  White Crinkled Seam Binding  Banner Year  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

For my project I used the Cute Halloween 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  One side of each sheet is in black and white.  That's what I chose to use for the card.

The base of the card is Flirty Flamingo 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

I cut the designer paper into 3 equal parts to fit my white layer.  For 2 of the pieces color in the candy using the light colors for the blends Pumpkin Pie, Flirty Flamingo, and Highland Heather.  Leave the piece in the center with no color.  Add the sheets to the card.  Add these to a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White, the top and the bottom first and then add in the center.

Use the same blends to color the White Crinkled Seam Binding.  Tie around the layer and into a knot.

The sentiment label uses the stamp set Banner Year.  Cut circles using the Layering Circles Dies.  The larger is Flirty Flamingo.  Stamp in Memento Black.  Fussy cut one of the bats and add above the sentiment label.  Embellish with the Matte Black Dots.  Add this label with dimensionals.

That's all there is.  It was fun coloring in the designer paper.  I would prefer different colors.  I'm sure others would love the colors in this project.  That's what makes the world interesting!

Basic Borders Dies Fall Card

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the cooler weather and the colors.  I love watching a lot of leaves fall with a breeze.  Today I have a fall card for you using the Basic Border dies and the Stitched Leaves dies.

Facebook Live 10.20.2021 Welcoming Woods

We made two cards on my Facebook Live using the Welcoming Woods stamp set from the mini catalog.  Both have essentially the same layout.  One is for fall and the other is for winter.

We'll start with the fall card.

The base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

We are using the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  Cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the front of the card.

Use the Stitched Rectangle dies, the 2nd and 4th from the outside, to cut a frame from Basic Black card stock.  Use Foam Adhesive Strips on the back.

Cut a piece of Basic White 3  x 4 1/2.  Set up the trees from the Welcoming Woods stamp set on the Stamparatus.  Stamp in Memento Black.  You will need to shift the paper in order to cover all of it with trees.  Use Blending Brushes to add Mango Melody at the bottom and Misty Moonlight at the top.  Blend each together toward the center.  Add leaves in Memento Black.

Add the tree layer in the center of the card front.  Add the frame around it.

Stamp the trees, this time in Early Espresso, just as in the first card.

Stamp the snowflakes in Versamark and emboss in white.  SU now has the embossing powders available in groups.  The Basics group has white, black, and clear.

One Stamp at a Time Ghoul's Night Out!

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time blog hop for October.  Our theme is Ghoul's Night Out!  This is such a fun hop.  I can't wait to see the card and 3D projects of our hoppers.

May be an image of flower and text that says 'OSAT ONE STAMP AT A TIME BLOG HOP'

For my card I made a book fold card using the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  It also features the Cutest Halloween bundle and the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.

OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest Halloween Bundle  Book Fold  Beautiful Trees dies  Halloween Punch  Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon  Pattern Party DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Start with a card base of Basic Black cut to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and 6 3/4. 

Glue down the small section.  This serves as the spine and thus the name book fold.  Add a piece of the black and white check from Pattern Party.  It measures 1 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Tie the Black Glitter Organdy Ribbon around this section and into a bow in the center of the front.  I find that adding a glue dot under the first tie helps keep the ribbon in place so that I can tie the rest.

For the front of the card add the bumblebee paper.  It's actually on the back of the black and white check.  This piece is cut to 4 1/8 x 4 1/8.  

The tree is cut using the Beautiful Trees dies.  Before cutting add some of the Adhesive Sheets to the back of your black card stock.  OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest halloween Bundle  Book Fold  Beautiful Trees dies  Halloween Punch  Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon  Pattern Party DSP  Close up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create
This turns the tree into a sticker and it adheres easily to the card front.

The ghost is punched from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper with the Halloween punch.  The Cutest Halloween stamp set and the Halloween punch can be purchased as a bundle.  Add the ghost with dimensionals.

The saying is from the Cutest Halloween stamp set.  Stamp with Memento ink on Basic White.  Cut the saying apart and add with dimensionals.

Finish with the Matte Black Dots.

OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest Halloween bundle  Gift Bag from 6 x 6  Halloween Punch  Cute Halloween DSP  Pattern Party DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

 

For my 3D item, I made a bag using two pieces of  6 x 6 from the same Pattern Party Host DSP.  Score one side, this one will be the top of the bag, at 3/4.  Score the other three sides at 1 1/4.  You

The 3/4 score line becomes the top of the bag.  Use a Bone Folder to burnish the folds and this section is folded so that it is the band around the top.  Use some glue to hold it in place.  Do this for both pieces.

Burnish the rest of the folds.  The larger areas are the front and back of the bag.  Fold the other sides back.  The bottom fold is for the bottom of the bag.  On one of the pieces only cut away the bottom 2 outside sections.  This is the side that you want to decorate.

I cut a moon from the designer paper using the Inspiring Canopy dies.  Cut another tree just as above.  Don't forget the Adhesive Sheet on the back.

OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest Halloween Bundle  Beautiful Trees  Halloween Punch  Black and White Gingham Ribbon  Pattern Party DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Punch the jack-o'-lantern from the Cute Halloween paper with the Halloween punch.  Add with dimensionals.  The Boo! is from the Banner Year stamp set in the annual catalog.  Stamp in Memento on a scrap of Basic White.  Trim around it with snips and add with dimensionals.

Line up the two bags from the bottom.  Add a piece of stronger card board ( I used the designer series paper backing piece) cut at 1 1/8 x 3 1/8 between the two pretty layers for strength.

Now is should kind of fold up on its own.  Glue together.  I do have a video showing how to put a big bag together.  It's about the same.  Find it here.  It will look best if you fold the sides from the front on top of the other.  You'll have a pretty fold instead of edges showing although it's pretty hard to tell.

Use an 8 inch piece of the Black and White Gingham Ribbon for each side.  Punch small holes and tie knots in the ribbon on the inside.  Use some tape inside the bag if needed to keep the ribbon from pulling through.

Here are my card and bag together.  I have a feeling my granddaughter Sagan may get these.  Now to fill that bag with goodies for her.

I'm so glad you joined me today, but you don't want to miss all of the other projects.  If I'm your first or just a stop on your way, please continue on the hop!
