Wicked Cool is Perfectly Preserved

I had so much fun making this card!  I saw something on Pinterest that inspired me…just knew I could use Stampin' Up! products to make one.  I actually changed it up quite a bit, but the inspiration is there.



OK…here are the details on how I made it!

  1. Base card is Tangerine Tango cardstock.
  2. I layered on the plaid design from Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Paper.
  3. I stamped the witches boots from Wicked Cool with Black Stazon on Very Vanilla, then colored the socks with Pumpkin Pie.  I stamped the bats with Basic Gray ink. Then cut it out with the jar framelit from Cannery Set. 
  4. I stamped the jar image from Perfectly Preserved with Black Stazon on a Window Sheet and cut it out with the jar framelit, too.
  5. I adhered them together with two mini glue dots (under the ruffle).
  6. The ruffle bonnet was stamped with Tangerine Tango ink, used the framelit and I trimmed off the ruffle to place on top of the Window Sheet jar.
  7. The entire piece was adhered to a rectangle of Very Vanilla and I added more Basic Gray bats and cobwebs, along with the Basic Gray polka dot design from H&S, too, on the right side.  Then layered it on Basic Black cardstock.
  8. I made the broom by cutting a thin strip of Early Espresso cardstock and punched the top with the Owl Punch from Crumb Cake.  I scored it every 1/8" inch with Simply Scored Tool and cut slits with my Paper Snips.
  9. I adhered the broom handle inside the jar and the "straw" is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the front.  I added a bow of Linen Thread.
  10. Finally, I stamped "Have a Wicked Halloween" with Black Stazon on Tangerine Tango and punched with the Decorative Label punch and adhered on the front.


OK…so do you think this is fun, too?  I chuckle to look at it!  Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!  Come back tomorrow for a BIG announcement!  Mary and I are VERY excited about it…hope you will be, too!
