Hey there! I have a BOOtiful CAS card to share with you today that took just a few dies to create.

My jumping off point was the super cute Jack-O-Lantern Frame cut from rusty/orange glitter paper.

Doesn't he have the best smile! I tucked a couple of Twisted Houses cut from lime green paper behind him. This little panel was backed with golden yellow cardstock.

The Marzipan Alphabet had just the right sized letters to create my 'BOO!' sentiment. After cutting them from purple glitter paper, I used the scraps to cut just a few leaves from the Jack-O-Lantern Frame. I also used a few more of my scrap pieces to add thin stripes behind the focal panel. This helped to give a cohesive color palette throughtout the card.

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am hear to remind you of our Spooktacular Challenge this month. The theme is Get Your Boo On! This card features the little Halloween Icons from the Whittle Creatures Die Set and ghosts from the Whittle Scary Guys Die Set.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Which is your favorite icon?
A: Me? I like the little pumpkin

My background is a blend of Distress Oxide Inks Black Soot, Mowed Lawn, and Twisted Citron splattered with Black Soot and Copic White Opaque Paint. I framed the Halloween icons with the Leafy Branch Oval Craft Die and finished my card with the BOO sentiment using Poppy Stamps Marzipan Alphabet.

Boo to You!
by Birgit Norton


Hello Poppystamps fans!  Birgit here with you today with a clean and simple Halloween card.

I started with an A2 size, top folding, white card base.  I cut a piece of black cardstock that measured slightly smaller than the card base, to allow a white framed border.  Using my scoreboard, I scored horizontal lines every half inch and mounted it to the card base.


Now for the fun part.  Let the die cutting begin!  I cut the Small Madison Window out of the same black card stock that I used for the front panel.   I used distress oxide inks and blending sponges to loosely create the night sky scene through the window, adding a few black and white ink splatters to finish it off.  I glued the window on top of the sky scene and trimmed it with my scissors.  I die cut the pumpkin from white card stock and colored it using copic markers, mounting the pumpkin inside the window.


The little ghosts were also cut out of white card stock with just the lightest amount of distress ink to add depth.


To finish the card off, I die cut the letters using Marzipan Alphabet, out of black cardstock and the piece of the sky scene that I had trimmed off earlier. I glued the letters together, offsetting them to allow the colored letter to act as a shadow to the black letter.

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.

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!

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!

Scary Home
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello, Marybeth Lopez  , here with you today. I can't believe Halloween will be here before we know it. I thought it might me a good idea to get started on creating some Halloween cards. I used some of the new Poppystamps Halloween dies: Neighborhood Home Pop Up Easel Set and Whittle Scary Guys ( they are sooo cute.


I layered the roof with four layers of cardstock, same for the porch  and roof. The pumpkins and ghost are adhered with foam tape. I place a piece of tape on the back  of the pumpkins and ghost so that the eyes , nose and mouth stay in place. It also helps if they fall out with the tape in back you can just place them back on to the face because the sticky side is facing up. 


I used memory box :Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad FP1003 for the accents , (top layers of the roof, windows and door.)


I didn't want to add too many  different colors because  of all the detail. I kept my colors to shades of black , white and orange. 


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I have inspired you to get crafty. When I was young I couldn't wait to make Halloween decorations and see them. I think we all love fall.

God bless and Peace be with you.
