Twisted Houses
by Candice Crawford


Hey there crafty friends. Candice here on the blog with another Halloween card to share. Today's card is another cutesy Halloween card using dies from the recent Poppystamps Halloween release.


The dies I used for the card are the Twisted Houses die, the Whittle Creatures die set and the Marzipan Alphabet dies. I cut the Twisted Housed die from black card stock and layered with yellow cardstock underneath to make the houses appear to have lights on. Next I die cut the ghost from white glitter cardstock and the word spooky from plain white cardstock. 


For the background on my card I created a nighttime sunset using Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot. Today's card came together rather quickly and I really enjoyed creating it. I hope you all found inspiration to create some cutesy Halloween cards. Until next time....happy crafting.

Hey there crafters, Candice here on the blog today sharing a slimline Halloween card using a few new products from Poppystamps. Slimline cards are a lot of fun to make and they are pretty easy too. 


Today's card is using the new Ghost die from the new Halloween Assemblage die set along with the Boo sentiment from the new Boo Poe Script die. I die cut the ghost three times from white cardstock and the sentiment was die cut six times in two. Three times from white cardstock and three times from black cardstock. I then layered the black cardstock on top of the white cardstock with liquid glue slightly off center to create a shadow for the sentiment. 


For the background of my card, I used my Distress Oxide Ink in Black shoot along with a blending brush to create a spooky cloudy night sky. I then used a black Sharpie marker and drew freehand a few bats to my background scene. 


Next I adhered the die cut ghosts to the card with some 3m foam tape. Lastly I added the layered Boo sentiments to the card with some liquid adhesive. I really liked how my card came together. I tend to gravitate more towards cutesy Halloween cards, more so than spooky and scary halloween cards. I categorized this card as "cutesy" Halloween.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I hope you enjoyed this card share and found inspiration. Unit next time crafters, happy crafting.

If The Shoe Fits Part Deux
by Nancy Penir


Fall Greetings, Poppy friends, and welcome to my second post using the fabulously vampy Witch's Shoe. This. time perched as a cake topper. Still plenty of bling of course, and using every bit of a slimline length.


The card is 3 1/2 x 8" and I added strips of background color just a wee bit smaller so I'd have a white frame.


My pumpkin  is first backed by yellow, then again in dark green. I then gave it a coat of Glossy Accents.


If you're looking for glitter paper cardstock, head on over to Memory Box and check out all the paper pads they have for you.

I suggest you get as many as you can, the holidays are right around the corner! (No pressure, LOL)


The flowers got a spray of shimmer for added sparkle.

Hope you enjoyed this post today, and are inspired to play with some of fun new die sets in the Poppystamps store!

Moon Cat
by Tiffany Pryce


Welcome back to the blog! Tiffany here with some inspiration to share for our current challenge for the month - Anything Goes! This challenge theme is perfect because you can make anything you want - go wild! Since I love Halloween and I love all things autumn, I decided to use another new die from the latest release to make a Halloween card. 

I used an alcohol ink background that I had in my stash to create this quick card. When I created the background, I used a variety of blue, purple, and metallic alcohol inks. I dropped small amounts of color repeatedly around the panel and blended with alcohol blending solution and added texture with isopropyl alcohol. I really like using a fan brush to splatter isopropyl alcohol because it gives a nice distribution of splatter. I didn't have any black ink, so I decided to take my 100 copic marker (black) to scribble on the edges. It works exactly like a liquid alcohol ink. I spread the black ink with more isopropyl alcohol to darken the edges. I think it looks like an abstract night sky or maybe a galaxy.



Once the panel was dry, I die cut the Cat Collage die from the top center. The die cuts out the moon part, but leaves the cat. I wanted the cat to be a different color so from a piece of glitter paper, I die cut the Cat Collage again. I carefully snipped the cat out (this was very easy to do) and adhered it in place. I love the sparkle against the alcohol ink. Behind the panel, I adhered a piece of matte silver cardstock from the Reflections Mirror paper pad to be the moon. Finally, I matted the entire card front with a piece of black cardstock to "ground" the piece a bit more.


I debated adding a sentiment several times, but in the end, I decided to leave a sentiment off. I almost never create cards without a sentiment on the front, but hey anything goes right?! What do you think? Would you have added a sentiment on the front?

Hope you enjoyed the card and are inspired to join us for the challenge. See all the rules and how to enter on the Poppystamps blog. Until next time, happy crafting!
