Halloween is around the corner and spooky nights are here! I am not a huge Halloween fan……in fact I really don’t like it. (GASP) I heard that. 🙂 I am easily scared and dressing up has never really been my thing. I do like to make cute little treat bags for Trick or Treaters though!
So since I am not a fan of Halloween I don’t usually purchase Halloween Stamps but instead use some of my current stamps and punches to create a few fabulous cards to send to friends and family! Like this amazing card! I started with a card base of Crushed Curry and layered a piece of Elegant Eggplant on top. I used my Lovely As a Tree Stamp Set to stamp a few trees in Chocolate Chip along the bottom! For the moon, I used my 2-1/2″ Circle Punch to punch out some Crushed Curry cardstock! Then I punched out a branch from the Bird Builder Punch in Early Espresso cardstock. Using my Paper Snips, I cut the leaves of the branch to make it look more ragged and like a dead tree (not so cute and pretty). For the bat, I used my Owl Builder Punch for the base and the Small Oval Punch for the wings. I punched out to Small Ovals and then using the Word Window Punch, punched about a 1/4″ into the oval to create that notch. Of course he is adhered onto my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and I punched it out with the Word Window Punch as well. I added a knot of Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon as well! Here is a quick Video Tutorial on the Bat pictured above as well as a bat in flight and more! Be sure to give the video a thumbs up if you liked it!!!!
