Halloween Happy Scenes

I love the set, Happy Scenes in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog!  My favorite image is the spider web!  Here’s a card I came up with…was going to use it for a class card until I realized I used 3 sets of Framelits on it!  Oh well, I still really love the black cat, the window and the scene…so I’m sharing it here!  It reminds me of my cat looking out the window all day!


Happy Scenes 2

Here are the details to recreate this card.

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Whisper White, folded in half.
  • A 2-1/4 x 4 piece of Farmers Market Designer Paper was adhered to the bottom of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Hello Honey.  A 1/4 x 4 strip of Whisper White hides the seam and is the “chair rail”.
  • The Hearth & Home Thinlet Die is cut from Thick Whisper White.
  • The background of the window is 2-3/8 x 3-1/4 Hello Honey cardstock sponged with Tangelo Twist Ink.  The spider web is stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink in the upper right corner.
  • A moon is punched form the 1″ Circle Punch from Hello Honey cardstock and placed in the upper left corner, trimming off the excess.
  • The Sleigh Ride Edgelit houses were cut from Basic Black cardstock and placed along the bottom of the scene.  The scene was adhered to the back of the window and then added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Pumpkin was made with 1″ Circles punched from Tangelo Twist cardstock, sponged with ink on the edges and adhered together.  The leaf is from the Bird Punch from Old Olive cardstock.
  • The black cat is cut from Basic Black cardstock with the Festive Fireplace Framelits and adhered sitting on the pumpkin and looking out the window!
  • Wishing you from Happy Scenes was stamped with Tuxedo Black on the DSP in the lower right corner.

See…wasn’t it worth using THREE of the Framelits on this card???  lol!  I love it!

Thank you for the adorable inspiration. I the only things I don’t have are the DSP and the cat die, or I’d make a few of these tonight!
