Friendly Monsters
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello , Marybeth Lopez  here again today with some friendly monsters.  I jumped right into Halloween but still need to make fall cards. The monsters are all from Poppystamps : Whittle Monsters that you can add and change up a bit to your very own liking. 


I had to add a bit of glitter to my monsters. I did keep it all blacks and whites but lots of different textures for the details.


In the picture above you can see I used the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles (negative space) for my cut out on this panel.  It made the perfect window to have all five of the Whittle Monsters fit on the front panel.


I raised the panel with foam tape so the monsters could fit inside the panel and not add too much bulk to my card.


I love the way this turned out, hope you do too. The background  panel is watercolor cardstock from Hobby Lobby .


 I hope you have a wonderful week full of blessings. Have fun crafting. 






Zig Zag Spellcaster Witch
By Jeanne Jachna


It's finally here!  It's HALLOWEEN!  I hope you have some spooky fun planned even if you're not allowed to trick or treat!  I've got a little eye candy for you today with this Halloween color block card.


I think details make your card creations come to life and this one is sure to catch your eye with the blingy steam coming from the cauldron and the silver bow on the witch's waist.


This card starts with the Zig Zag Border background.  It was easy to assemble.  Just cut strips of colorful card stock, tape them together nice and tight on their revers side and then trim the edges so the panel fits your card base.  Easy peasy! 


I topped the panel with a Pointed Oval Frame cut from black card stock.  It contains the scene and keeps the figure grounded so it doesn't look like it's floating. 

I wanted to add some details to the witch.  The die has some cut lines on her skirt.  I cut the witch twice... once in black and once in grey.  I cut the skirt to remove the cut panels and adhered them with adhesive foam tape to add dimension.  To hide the edges that looked a little rough I added a bitty bow.


The "Happy Halloween" sentiment is from the Halloween Ingredients stamp set.  The coordinating die set includes the little tag shape.


Wishing you a fun Halloween!  Don't eat too much candy!  :P

Halloween Ingredients
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends,  Candice here with another Halloween card. Halloween is tomorrow so I wish all of you a Happy and safe Halloween. To create this card I began by ink smooshing distress oxide inks colors onto a piece of white water color cardstock. I used the Distress ink colors of Candied Apple, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet.


Next I stamped the bottle images from the Halloween Ingredients stamp and die set onto the smooshed distress ink colors with some Stazon Black ink. Then I die cut each of the bottle images with the coordinating dies. 


Next I stamped the Ghosts, Goblins and Witches labels with Stazon Black ink into the coordinating tag outline stamp and die cut each of the images with the tag die from the stamp set. To add a bit of interest to the card I added a few stamped spiders and fussy cut each one out with my scissors and adhered them to the card with liquid adhesive. 


Lastly I stamped the sentiment a Halloween Hello from the Halloween Fun stamp set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I hope you've enjoyed card share and found inspiration. Happy Halloween everyone. Until next time.....Happy Crafting.

Boo Y'all
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends,  Candice here with a Halloween card using several dies from the the latest Poppystamps release.              To create the cute halloween scene, I began with die cutting a cloud stencil border from some white cardstock and using the whittle cloud border die cut to sponge the cloud image onto my card front using Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink.


Next I die cut the spooky tree image and the grass border from some black cardstock. I sniped the circle frame from the tree image with my scissors so that the tree could stand alone as on image. 

Next, I die cut three pumpkins from the pile of pumpkin die set. Then I cut the wavy long picket fence and the squeaker ghosts from white cardstock. I attached the fence and grass to my inked background with liquid adhesive and popped up two of the pumpkins, the tree and ghost images with 3M foam tape. 


I then stamped the Boo Y'all sentiment from the Halloween Fun stamp set in Versafine Onyx black ink. Then lastly, added the stitched rectangle trimmings frame cut from white cardstock onto my card. 


I absolutely love how this card came out. It's nice how all of the dies pair well together to create a cute and spooky halloween scene. Thank you all for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed the card project and found inspiration. 

Until next time, happy crafting!

SPooKy Boo!
by Jeanne Jachna


Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  I'm getting excited as Halloween is getting closer!  We spent last weekend dressing up the house with bales of hay, corn stalks, indian corn, pumpkins and colorful gourds.  A trip to the local farm stand is always a feast for the eyes!  It's been hard for all of us staying home in an effort to beat COVID.  It's been even harder trying to find places to go where you won't be around too many people.  Here's a peek from our escape..


There are some benefits to living in rural Indiana!    How could I not come home with a trunk full? I hardly knew where to begin!! 


Today I'm mixing a little old with the new.  Maybe you see an old favorite on my design?   It's the Diamond Background die.  Yes!  It's still available and as beautiful as ever.  It's one of the very first dies I purchased from Poppystamps!  I inlaid the entire panel with shades of yellow and orange for a fun harlequin pattern.


I topped the clean smooth panel with the new Boo Outline die cut from grey and black card stock.  


All that was left was to tuck little skeletons cut from the Surprise Skeleton die behind the words.  The die features the Surprise Skeleton inside an open circle.  A few snips free's it from the circle so you're left with the top half of a complete skeleton. 


I love the contrast of the bright colorful background with the dark boo word cuts.  The skeletons are glued loosely so they look like they might pop from the design! 


I hope you're making the most of the season and encourage you to take a ride in the car if you're feeling cooped up.  The crisp air and colorful leaves will brighten you're mood!
