Today’s card comes from my good friend and fellow Stampin’ Up Diva, Yvette:
This might look like a super complicated card to make, but it’s totally a piece of cake and something you could definitely do with the kiddies. The trick is in the punches! The postage punch and the modern label punch really take this up a notch from a just a checkerboard pattern to something that really pops. The other excellent trick to this card is using the pre-printed patterns on the Witches Brew DSP in the punches. It’ll look like it took you tons of time to put it together but it’s really a snap.
Here’s the recipe:
- Cardstock: Basic Black (#121045) Pumpkin Pie (#105117) Whisper White (#100730)
- Designer Series Paper: Witches Brew (#132185)
- Ink: Basic Black (#12698) Pumpkin Pie (#126945)
- Stamps: Halloween Hello (W#13178) (C#130580) Halloween Bash (W#130577) (C#131721)
- Punches: Postage Stamp (#122344) Decorative Label (#120907) Scallop Oval (#119856) Large Oval (#119855) 3/4″ Circle (#119850)
- Cut Cardstock: Basic Black CS to card base (4 1/2 x 5 1/4) Pumpkin Pie CS to mat (4 1/4 x 5) Whisper White CS (3 x 4 1/4) Basic Black (2 3/4 x 4 1/4)
- Layer CS onto left side of card
- Stamp images from Halloween Hello onto Pumpkin Pie CS. Punch images with Postage Stamp punch. Use Postage Stamp punch to punch 3 pieces from Witches Brew DSP
- Arrange and adhere Postage Stamp punches onto Basic Black CS
- Stamp decorative label and bat image on Whisper White CS using Pumpkin Pie ink and Basic Black ink

- Punch circle from Basic Black CS and Scallop Oval from Pumpkin Pie

You can see that this is a pretty quick card and the steps are things that you could definitely have the kids do. Mine love love love! to use the punches and the cute little images from the Halloween Hello are a huge hit with my girls.
