CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Halloween deja vu?

CreateFA15HopWelcome
Woohoo!  It’s Saturday…and that means the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team have their weekly blog hop!  This week we are again featuring Halloween sets in the Holiday Catalog!  SOOOO many cute ones!  Haunt Ya Later was one of the first sets I spotted and purchased.  Love these little characters…especially the cat!  I colored mine to look like my gray cat, Bleach!

 

Haunt ya Later
Isn’t that cute???  I love how this turned out!  Here are the details on how I made it:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Tangelo Twist, folded in half.
  • A layer of 4 x 5-1/4 Basic Gray was placed on top.
  • The DSP layers are 1 x 4 1/2  and 2 x 3-3/4 prints from Happy Hauntings DSP and adhered on an angle.
  • The 2 x 3 Very Vanilla layer is placed over top and a 1/2 x 4 strip of Black Glimmer Paper placed across the front.
  • The cat and pumpkin from Haunt Ya Later were stamped with Black Archival Ink and watercolored with the AquaPainter and Tangelo Twist, Old Olive and Tangelo Twist Inks.  The cat’s eyes are Old Olive, too.  They were hand-cut and added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Haunt Ya Later was stamped with Black Archival Ink in the upper left corner.

That’s it!  Now continue around the blog hop with a stop at our Create with Connie and Mary website so you can get the details on signing up for our SEPTEMBER Mini Session…opening TOMORROW!  Don’t miss out!  Here are some details about it!

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!
