I wonder how many of you demos have noticed the set A Little Something in the Holiday Catalog?  It is SO cute, but kind of gets overlooked with many of the OTHER great sets in there, don’t you think?  So…today’s card features this adorable little set on my card!


A Little Something
Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Tangelo Twist cardstock.
  • On top is a 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Basic Black cardstock with a 3-5/8 x 4-7/8 layer of the Happy Haunting Designer Paper on top of it.  Love that spider web pattern.
  • A coordinating 1 x 4-7/8 strip of the striped pattern in Happy Haunting was added down the left side.
  • The Spider Web Doilies was cut in half and bumped up against the strip of DSP.  (TIP:  I also cut off those little extra wrought-iron looking pieces on the ends to make it fit a little better.)
  • Trick or Treat from A Little Something was stamped on Very Vanilla with Tuxedo Black Ink and punched with the 1-3/8 Circle Punch, then layered on a 1-1/2 Circle Punch of Basic Black.  The words and pumpkins were colored with the Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For a finishing touch, the Basic Black Button was tied with Linen thread and added along the bottom left of the greeting.

Like it?  I really do!  OK…don’t forget to go over to Create with Connie and Mary to sign up for our August Mini Session!
