Out on a Limb for Halloween

Halloween Card with Stampin' Up! Out on a Limb Stamp Set

Eek! I'm a pushover for cute Halloween rubber stamps and so, of course, when Stampin' Up! introduced the Out on a Limb stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog I couldn't help myself. With ten different images in the set, you can do all sorts of scary-cute things!

I really wanted my cute witch flying past the moon, but I didn't want to do another masked moon shape. Instead, I stamped my images on River Rock card stock and used the 2-1/2" Circle punch to crop it.  The witch and cat were stamped over the broom image using VersaMark, followed by Black Emboss Powder, set with the Heat Tool.  The  branch and bats were also embossed.

Embossed Images Out on a Limb Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

The Rich Razzleberry layer got a few spritzes of Champagne Mist Shimmer Spray after the embossing. (Find the recipe for Shimmer Spray HERE.) It's super shimmery, but didn't show up well in the photos. Trust me ... it's SHIMMERY! The gold Glimmer Brad adds a little shimmer too, anchoring the happy halloween sentiment.

Halloween Card Ideas Hand Stamped

Inside the card, I simply lined it with a layer of Whisper White to allow for additional stamping and writing a personal message. I couldn't resist stamping the little pumpkins with mustaches. Those things are adorable and they make me laugh!
