Thank you for joining us on the first Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re a small group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators who fancied a new challenge to share with you all. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!
Taking the sketch above and considering we are well into Autumn now with the clocks going back tonight I thought I would get into the spirit with a Halloween card!
Using the Howl-o-ween Treat Stamp Set I stamped my spider, witches hat and wand images in Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Ink on to some Very Vanilla A4 Cardstock. I punched out the little spiders with the 3/4 inch Circle Punch and cut out the other images. I coloured the stars on the images with my Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.
Then taking a piece of Tangelo Twist A4 Cardstock I cut a mat (3 7/8 x 5 5/8 inches) for my card base, which is a piece of Basic Black A4 Cardstock cut in half at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8inches.
I decided to use some of the gorgeous Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper in my layout so I cut another mat to 3 5/8 x 5 3/8 inches and adhered this to my piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock. I cut two further strips of DSP, one piece to 1 inch x 2 1/2 inches and the second piece to 1 inch x 3 inches, I sponged the edges with some Tangelo Twist Classic Ink and stuck these down.
Taking my 2 inch Circle Punch I punched a circle out of some Black Glimmer Paper which is lush! I adhered my witches hat and wand image to this and popped it on to my card front with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also sponged the edges of my 3 cute little spiders and popped these up around my witches hat with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off I took my sentiment from the Happy Scenes Stamp Set and stamped this in the Basic Black Archival Ink. I popped my card front on to my card base and that is my card for todays Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge, I hoped you liked it.
Thanks for hopping by today!
