CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Halloween Cuties


Our theme this week on the Saturday Create with Connie and Mary Blog Hop is “Halloween Cuties”!  Halloween doesn’t have to be scary…there are lots of cute little monsters and costumes out there!  This is super quick and easy card idea!




Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Pumpkin Pie cardstock, folded in half.
  • A 1-1/2 x 3-3/4 piece of Halloween Night Designer Paper was added to the bottom of a 3-3/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Some Black Baker’s Twine was wrapped around the Whisper White cardstock several times to hide the seam.
  • The pumpkins from Spooky Fun were stamped with Tangerine Tango Ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock, the faces with Memento Blak Ink, then cut with the Halloween Scenes Framelits.
  • Happy Halloween greeting was curved on the clear block and stamped with Memento Black over the pumpkins.
  • A trio of Halloween Night Enamel Dots are scattered on the front.


That’s it!!!  SUPER easy, huh?

Day 2 Preview – Fall Fest

Wow…2 posts in one day!  The first one is a cute Halloween card for the SUO Challenge, so make sure you check it out, too!  I just got out my new Fall Fest stamp set to celebrate Day 2 of Create with Connie and Mary PREVIEW WEEK for the Holiday Card “Create”tions.  We are introducing two members of our Design Team today!  Go check them out!



I always am drawn to white pumpkins when I see them for sale or on display.  I don’t see them in the pumpkin fields (wonder why not?).  I had to play around a little to get the color “white” that looked real to me.  I ended up with White Craft Ink on Sahara Sand…the slight greenish cast to Sahara Sand seemed to look the most realistic.  So…here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Very Vanilla, folded in half.
  • The 4 x 5 1/4 layer is embossed with Delicate Dots folder.
  • I mimicked the dots with the green pattern in Color Me Autumn DSP and cut a 1 x 4 piece to go across the front.
  • I used the Circle Framelits to cut my Very Vanilla circle and tucked it under the DSP.
  • The white pumpkin is White Craft stamped on Sahara Sand and then Pumpkin Pie on Very Vanilla for the other one.  I colored the stems with my Mossy Meadow Marker and cut them out with the Fall Fun Framelits, then placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped two small leaves with Mossy Meadow Ink and also cut them with the Fall Fun Framelits.
  • The greeting from Holiday Cheer (Project Life) I stamped with Pumpkin Pie and cut with the Circle Framelit.  It was tucked under the pumpkins.
  • I thought it needed just a little more, so I colored two Rhinestone with the Old Olive Blendabilities Markers and added them to the leaves.  Then I wrapped some Linen Thread in a circle and added it to the front with a Mini Glue Dot!  It really finished off the card!
