Spooky Halloween Card using the Stampin Up Sheltering Tree set!

I believe you can make great holiday cards from your “everyday” stamps.

Recently, I used the Beautiful You stamp set from Stampin Up to make a fabulous halloween card. And you can bet I’ll be posting more halloween ideas for the next couple of weeks, so I hope you hit the follow button if you haven’t already!

This is yet another example of using everyday stamps for great holiday cards:

Using the Sheltering Tree stamp and the grass from the Enjoy Life set, I was able to make a spooky halloween card, and this card turned out spookier than I expected!

Supplies:

Spooky Steps:

  1. Cut the black cardstock in half to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half for your card base.
    • Cut a 4″ x 1″ strip and reserve for later.
  2. Cut the white cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4″.
  3. Stamp the grass from the Enjoy Life set on the white piece in black, and heat emboss. Stamp and emboss your halloween sentiment, too.
  4. Sponge a few smudges of Berry Burst on the white piece, over the embossed grass and sentiment, then sponge Gorgeous Grape over the pink.
  5. Stamp your sheltering tree (without the leaves of course!) in black.
  6. Adhere the black strip below the grass, and adhere the ribbon over it and around the back.
  7. Adhere stamped piece to the black card base. Add bat stickers (or stamp them)!

 

I’m playing along with the following challenges:

I hope this halloween tutorial inspired you! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy Crafting!
