It's that time of year again. The ghouls and ghost are starting to appear as the haunting season begins. This card isn't so haunting though. It's kind of cutesy. I began this card with a Really Rust standard card. 1.75" x 5.25" and 2.25" x 3.25" of Pumpkin Pie, 2" x 3" Bravo Burgundy, 1.75" x 2.75" Whisper White, 3.50" x 3.50" More Mustard, 3.25" x 3.25" Basic Black, 1.50" x 5" Creepy Crawly Designer Series Paper, Vellum 1.25" circle, and Creepy Crawly Designer Series Paper 1.25" circle.

The 1.50" x 5" Creepy Crawly Paper was placed over the 1.75" x 5.25" Pumpkin Pie cardstock and attached to the Really Rust card. The Basic Black cardstock was attached to the More Mustard cardstock and attached to the card about .50" above the bottom and .50" away from the left edge. The Bravo Burgundy cardstock is attached to the remaining Pumpkin Pie cardstock. The corners of both are punched with the Ticket Corner Punch. On the Whisper White cardstock a cat is stamped in Basic Black from the Autumn Apparitions set. The pumpkins from the same set are stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust and Old Olive using the masking technique. The Whisper White is then attached to the Bravo Burgundy and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and attached to the card. Vellum and Creepy Crawly Designer Paper are punched using the 1.25" Circle Punch. The spider is stamped in Basic Black on the vellum circle. A Horizontal Slot is punched at the top of each, (2) 1.25"Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbons are placed into the slots and the circles are attached to the card as shown. All items used in the creation are Stampin' Up products.

It's been a hectic couple of weeks and I had not had a chance to make cards or post on my blog. This card is from a sketch challenge from the blog of Beate http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2007/09/21/weekend-sketch-challenge-20. If you ever get a chance to check out her blog you will find that it is awesome.

For this card I used Sky Blue, Certainly Celery, Blue Bayou, Whisper White, and Wintergreen Designer Paper. All from Stampin' Up of course. It is a standard sized card with 4" x 5.25" Sky Blue with the lower corners Ticket punched. It is layered with the double sided Wintergreen Designer Paper which measures 2.5" x 5". The next layer is Certainly Celery, 2.5" x 3.25" and the double sided Wintergreen Designer Paper, 2.25" x 3.". I attached the Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon and Certainly Grosgrain Ribbon around those two pieces. Next, the Blue Bayou paper was cut at 3.5" x 3", the Certainly Celery 3.25" x 2.75", and the Sky Blue 3" x 2.5". On the Sky Blue card stock, the Merry and Bright stamp from the Season of Joy set was stamped in Blue Bayou. A Rhinestone Brad, Ice Squares, was added to the snowflake of Joy for a little bling. A 1 3/8" circle was punched in Blue Bayou and a 1 1/4" circle in Certainly Celery. A flower from the Season of Joy set was stamped in Purely Pomegranate on Whisper White card stock and attached to Certainly Celery with a Stampin' Dimensionals and attached to the card.
