A Hand-Penned Halloween

Halloween Card Idea With Hand Penned Holidays by Stampin' Up!

BOO! Today I'm sharing a cute and simple Halloween card featuring a smidgen of heat embossing for a little added interest and texture.  The Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper gets things rolling in the background.

HIP TIP: Save on designer series paper by using two strips instead of one solid piece. The center layer will cover up the gap. Use the same process for the Cajun Craze strips. Cut two narrow strips and adhere to the designer series paper before attaching them to the card base.

Heat Embossed Black Halloween Cat

The black embossed "Happy Halloween" greeting is from the new Hand-Penned Holidays stamp set featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  (CONFESSION: I honestly wasn't sure if I liked this set upon first glance. However, it has grown on me over time and now I actually like it quite a lot!) You'll be seeing more of this greeting stamp set in the future. ;o)

The Out on a Limb stamp set, also in the Holiday Mini Catalog, is so much fun! The images are "scary cute" and can be mixed and matched in so many ways. Obviously, the cat was a no brainer and those mustach-io'd pumpkins are a riot. Hee!

Mustached Halloween Pumpkins by Stampin' Up!

Notice the black pinking trim? Super easy with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch - I just covered the hearts with my Whisper White layer.

Thanks for dropping by today and Happy Labor Day!
