CCMC Saturday Blog Hop: Halloween Card - Haunt Ya Later!


Hello everyone and welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop! This week we are all making a Halloween card! I am your stop after the fabulous Debbie Henderson!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I am not the gory kind of Halloween person but I love the cute Halloween images! And Stampin' Up! has some super cute Halloween stamp sets! Like this one, Haunt Ya Later. I love this set!! Here is a super simple card that I created for this hop with the help of the Freshly Made sketch!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Cover the front of the card base with a piece of Happy Haunting designer paper
  • On a piece of watercolor paper, stamp the cat image from the Haunt Ya Later stamp set with the Basic Black archival ink
  • Use a blender pen and Smoky Slate ink to color in the cat, Cucumber Crush for the eyes and Soft Sky for the "ground"
  • Stamp the greeting onto a strip of Tangelo Twist card stock and use the Washi Label punch on the ends of the strip
  • Adhere the strip to the top of the panel and adhere panel to card base using dimensionals
  • Thread a piece of linen thread through a silver basic metal button and adhere to card
Before I send you on to see what the fabulous Connie Babbert has created, I wanted to share a little snippet of what's to come in the next Create with Connie and Mary mini edition! You won't want to miss this!


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super day!

  5. Superb Halloween cards! Have been thinking to host a grand Halloween party this year. Last year, attended an awesome Halloween event at a local Chicago event space. Everything there was brilliant. Hoping to host a similar party.
