Floating By
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello , Marybeth Lopez  with you today. I created this fun little card with friendly ghost floating by, even the " Boo" looks friendly.

I used Poppystamps : Halloween Assemblage,Whittle Scary Guys ( not :), Boo Poe Script and Autumn Fairy Jewels. All linked below.


I found this striped piece of vellum, it seemed just perfect for some light and airy ghost floating around on the card.


These Poppystamps ghost are just too cute ! At first I just had the 3 larger ghost then decided to add the two smaller Whittle Scary Ghost and love the way they added so much to the card. I love using the Autumn Fairy Jewels for the eyes , it couldn't be any easier. Just plop on. I used the same size on the small and large ghost.


I cut the boo out twice and layered it. Since it is so fragile I used spray adhesive to adhere together. You can still take your time and use glue. I have a small box I keep my spray in and I use that whenever I need to spray the adhesive to my intricate die cuts. 


Thank you for the visit today friends. I hope you can find some time to enjoy some crafty time and relax.

I hope you have a blessed rest of September. 





Not Too Spooky

There's a pretty little new pop up house in the Poppystamps neighborhood! I've dolled it up with sage green and gray for you today.

The warm glow in the windows comes from yellow cardstock with an overlay of vellum.

She's pretty, but she looks kind of bare. Lets jazz her up, shall we!

The house is flanked with trees trimmed out from the Soaring Tree Frame. The leaves were colored with Copics. I added lots of "not too spooky" ghosts (in fact they're pretty darn cute!) and a pair of smiling jack-o-lanterns.

Do you see those little scallops in the bottom windows? They came from the tree frame too!

It wouldn't be Halloween without a big yellow moon and some clouds! I wouldn't mind trick or treating at this house, though. How about you?

Whittle Scary Guys Haunted House
by Meghan Kennihan

Final_3Hi Crafty Friends,
It's almost SPOOKY Month and I am looking forward to it with this fun Haunted House Easel card. Poppy Stamps has so many fa-boo-lous Halloween dies.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you go to Haunted Houses this season?
A: Me? No! I'm a scaredy cat!

Final_5I used Poppy Stamps Neighborhood Home Pop Up Easel Set with black and gray papers to make my Haunted House with light yellow in the windows for the "glow".

Final_4I decorated my house with the Whittle Scary Guys. Using Copic Sketch R21 for their cheeks. I finished the inside of my card with the word BOO using the Poppy Stamps Marzipan Alphabet Set.

Spooky Day
by Tricia Barber

Spooky 1

Hello!  Tricia here with you today to share a Spooky Halloween card using a softer color palette.   I have seen so many cards this year with this type of color combination and just had to give it a try.  I started with a pink card base, masked off some stripes using post it tape and ink blended with a darker pink ink.   I trimmed the panel to 4 inches by 5 1/4 inches.   I layered this onto a white card base.  

Spooky 3

I got out some scraps of light purple, pale yellow, some light oranges and pink cardstock.  My cat, of course, had to be black!  I used the Whittles Napping Cat and the Whittles Scary Guys to die cut several images using my scraps of cardstock. The moon and stars came from the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn kit.   I embossed the stars with glow in the dark embossing powder! So cool! 

Spooky Glow

My sentiment was created with the Marzipan Alphabet die and I used a sentiment from the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn kit.  I die cut the Marzipan Alphabet letters from black and white cardstock and then stacked them onto each other.  I used some scraps to add the eyes to the Spooky!  I just love how it turned out!  Just by adding the word Spooky to the sentiment it turns into a Halloween sentiment! 

Spooky 2

I hope I have inspired you to try a different color palette and look at your everyday stamps to create a Halloween card!   Have a wonderful day!

The Very Haunted House
by Janet Katz

Oh, how I love Halloween! While I don't have little ones to take trick-or-treating any longer, the spooky crafts are still a huge source of enjoyment. I used the new Poppystamps' Neighborhood Home Pop Up Easel Set to create this creaky, wooden house where a lot of eerie things live. The house itself is made from brown cardstock that I embossed with a wood-looking embossing folder. I swiped a little brown ink over the raised surface and then splattered with Distress Oxide Spray in Iced Spruce. The curtains were cut from cardstock dyed with Distress Spray Stain in Seedless Preserves and glued to the back of the brown house. Next, I cut the background from a curry-colored cardstock (to resemble light inside the house) and adhered the house with the curtains onto it. The two rooflines and all seven window frames were cut and embossed (remember, these are etched dies which really enhance all the details) from black cardstock. I swiped a gray Distress Crayon over the big roof and rubbed it in with my fingers just to allow the texture to show through more.

I also used foam adhesive on the back of the big roof to make it stand out. I had a piece of olive green cardstock with a kraft core that I used to cut the door from and then sand the edges of it. I swiped a little brown Distress crayon over the door and glued it in place. I also glued the window frames in place.

I cut the broom from the Whittle Witch die set and used a brown marker to color the top of it. I glued it on to make it look like it was leaning against the front door. I cut the ghosts from the new Whittle Scary Guys set in white cardstock and adhered a tiny piece of black cardstock behind for the eyes. I mounted these on the house with foam adhesive. I used a sheet of 110lb purple glitter cardstock from the Glitzy Glitter Pad and cut the Boo Poe Script from it and mounted it to the roof. I used black cardstock to cut a spider web from the Halloween Assemblage die set. Finally, I cut the easel portion from kraft cardstock, adhered the entire house onto the proper tab, and then adhered the spider web, so the easel would hold it upright when opened.

This was lots of fun to create. There are so many ways to haunt a house! What's your favorite way?
