Jar of Haunts again

Yep…another card done with Stampin’ Up!’s Jar of Haunts stamp set!  I was glad to see a regular pumpkin in this set, and I’m sure I’ll be using it a lot for fall cards…we have a lot of fall birthdays.  And…although I LOVE the jars, there is a lot more you can do with this set!  You may have noticed my new blog look with the stack of pumpkins…combining the two was my inspiration for this card!  BUT…check back tomorrow for ANOTHER twist with this set!


Jar of Haunts 3

Here are the details…


  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White folded in half.
  • Along the bottom of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Smoky Slate is a 1 x 5-1/4 layer of Halloween Night Designer Paper.
  • The Smoky Slate/Basic Black Baker’s Twine is wrapped around twice and tied in a bow on the front.
  • Happy Day from Perfectly Wrapped is stamped with Memento Black Ink in the upper left area.
  • But…how did I make the different sized pumpkins from just ONE stamp???  First stamp four pumpkins with Memento Black Ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and hand-cut them out.  For the top one, trim off the two side curves of the pumpkin to make a smaller one.  The middle one is regular sized.  The bottom is two pumpkins overlapped side by side.  If you follow the lines of the pumpkins, you can see how they match up pretty well!  Stack them all together and add to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The stem/leaf image is stamped with Memento Black on Old Olive, then colored with an Old Olive and Chocolate Chip Marker, and hand-cut.  Two more leaves were stamped, colored and cut for the bottom.
  • Add a few Silver Sequins from the Metallic Sequins Pack for a little bling!
