Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun

Stampin up ghouls

A quick word . . . . if you haven't checked out my new on-line ordering option, please do.  Once you reach my Stampin' Up! demonstrator page, click SHOP NOW in the top right corner.  You'll access a Stampin' Up! shopping cart, search tools, product suggestions and simple one step instructions for ordering SU products and secure credit card payment.

I have received a resounding "thank you" from stampers who have placed their order on-line with me using this new feature.  GOOD NEWS:  All hostess benefits are 100% available with on-line orders beginning at $150 in Stampin' Up! products.  However, they are referred to as Stampin' Rewards when ordering on-line.  Same great deal.

Long live "Batty for You!"  It's delightful for Halloween cards, spooky treats or perhaps a dash of jazz to one of the Pillow Box die cuts?  I'm partial to Dracula.  TIP:  This set coordinates beautifully with Stampin' Up!'s 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches.

I stamped each "ghoul" on Whisper White card stock (left to right, Perfect Plum, Basic Gray and Kiwi Kiss Ink).  Each was popped out with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch and layered on a 1 3/8" Circle.  A few Stampin' Dimensionals adhere each circle to layers below, created with Stampin' Up!'s Tag and Small Tag Punches.  TIP:  For some spooky spunk, I angled each tag.

The horizontal panel is topped with a layer of Ghostly Greetings Designer Series Paper, followed by Perfect Plum and Whisper White card stock.  A batty orange pattern (also Ghostly Greetings Designer Series Paper) is layered over a 4.25 x 5.5 card base in Basic Black.

The sentiment was my first choice from Chills and Thrills Rub-Ons.  "Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun!"  Hilarious. The Whisper White oval is layered on a Spellbinders Doubled Ended Tag.  This was my first time "out" with the Double Ended Tags.  TIP:  I love that I can create a ribbon slide in absolutely any card stock color.  Gotta have 'em?  Marcie offers them at Cut At Home (on sale, too).  The final touch.  A handsome snippet of Black Gingham Ribbon.

Howls and Pretties . . . Mary

  1. It’s cards like this that makes me think maybe I should get “into” halloween. Very cute card

  2. I never thought of using the circle punch with the tag punch. This is a neat idea 🙂

  3. Gorgeous card! Love every element you’ve included in there. I’ve always had a soft spot for that set. (Never got it, though – it’s not available in French. I now have Deer Friends to console me, though.)

    That tag looks pretty cool! TFS!

  4. Not only do ghouls want to have fun, Mary does also like to have fun. You can tell by your cards you are always having fun. I love the card and I’m going to give Marcie a call and order that ribbon slide.
