This is my Halloween card for our blog hop this week:

I made an extra long card for my project this week. I love the owl image from the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set so much I wanted to stretch the card by adding 4 of him in different ink colors. So fun too that every image in this stamp set has a coordinating framelits die to cut it out! This is the stamp set I'll be featuring in our September Mini Session also. I've got a great project during the session to show you, you won't want to miss it!

Also included in the Boo To You Framelits Dies is the word BOO. I cut mine three times and layered it. How neat! Here are the steps to creating this card:
  • Card Base: 8-1/2" x 6". Score in the center of the 6" side at 3" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Happy Haunting Designer Paper 8-1/4" x 2-3/4". Glue to card base.
  • Owls: Stamp 4 owls using Tangelo Twist, Memento Black, Rich Razzleberry & Chocolate Chip Inks on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Cut out using the Boo To You Framelits Dies and glue all of them on the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. I placed them so they resembled holding hands and one of them is upside-down.
  • Witches Hats: Stamp three hats using Memento Black Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Cut them out using the Boo To You Framelits Dies and glue them in place using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Sentiment: Cut the BOO three times using the Boo To You Framelits Dies and Black Glimmer, Tangelo Twist and Very Vanilla Cardstocks. Layer and glue all 3 together and glue to card front. 
Card Supplies:
  • Stamp Set: Howl-o-ween Treats
  • Inks: Tangelo Twist, Memento Black, Rich Razzleberry, Chocolate Chip
  • Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Tangelo Twist
  • DSP: Happy Haunting
