As promised…here is the second Halloween card for our September Class. I REALLY like this one. I’m sure my grandchildren will LOVE it.
Here it is in full sunlight. I’ve been experimenting with outdoor lighting. I’ll show you the shade shot next. Let me know which you prefer.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post I used retired items. I can’t help it…sometimes the stamp sets are just so perfect and you really like them so you just can’t part with them. I used Tags 4 You 131823 and Halloween Hello 131721 Stamp Sets as well as Tangerine Tango ribbon 130812 which is very similar to the new 3/8″ Stitched Satin in Tangelo Twist 133669.
This shot was taken in the shade. I used a Tangerine Tango card with the layer of black. I punched out the Hexagon shapes in the black so that the Tangerine Tango would show through. I used Snail adhesive to glue down the black but now wish I had used Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the black would stand out (we will in class). I did pop up the Decorative Label and Label Bracket pieces.
Here’s a peek at the inside. I used the Labels Collection Framelits so that there would be a nice area to write a message.
I’m thinking full sunlight is too much…I like the shade shots better. What do you think?

I hope you like this card as much as I do. Remember…you can WOW this card with embellishments. I’ve shown you a pretty basic card so that you can put your creativity to work and make this design your own. Remember…I’d be delighted if you decided to CASE this card. I only ask that you mention my name as your original inspiration. Also…keep in mind that just because I used Retired stamp sets doesn’t mean there isn’t something different you can use…such as Freaky Friends 135161 or Tee-Hee-Hee 135125 from the Holiday Catalog.
Speaking of the Holiday Catalog…if you don’t have one yet…just contact me so that I can get one to you. It is full of wonderful new products!
I have one more card to share with you and a couple little treat packages – so keep following my blog.
