Today’s Halloween card combines the adorable patterns from Stampin’ Up! Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper (one of My Top 10 Favorites from the Holiday Catalog) and a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO254).


  • EEEEEK!  That handsome little spider from Tricky Treats stamp set was heat embossed in black for a delicious shine!  Googly eyes (Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, p. 27) add a wiggly, 3-D pop!

  • The spider’s hat was heat embossed separately in Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I clipped it with my Paper Snips and pieced it in place.   He looks so dapper!
  • The flagged end was created in a flash using a 1 3/8″ Square Punch.  Watch my previously posted video to learn how.

  • A bold, coordinating polka dot pattern (Howlstooth and Scaringbone) was added to the Very Vanilla envelope flap.
