Ghoulish Goodies, Magic in This Night, Halloween Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today I thought I would play with the new Halloween sets I bought. I wasn't sure where I was going with this card and I wasn't too thrilled with it when I got there! LOL  It's kind of blah. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

On top of the card base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

A 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magic in This Night" 12" x 12" pack. On the reverse side of that piece is the black and white striped images. I cut that piece 2" x 4-3/4". I punched one end using the "Triple Banner Punch".  That piece was taped on top of the other DSP.

I die cut a label from the "Stitched So Sweetly" dies using Cajun Craze card stock. I sponged the edges with Basic Black to tone it down it bit. It practically jumped off the card. 

The cat is from the "Ghoulish Goodies" set. I stamped it using black Memento ink. Then I die cut it using the second largest "Stitched Oval" dies.  The collar on the cat was colored in using the light Cajun Craze Blends pen and the eyes were colored in using the light Granny Apple Green Blends pen.  The circle also seemed a bit bright so I sponged Basic Black ink around the edges too. Then I set the cat in place on top of the label piece using Dimensionals. 

The label piece was set in place on the front of the card using Dimenisonals.

The words are from the "Ghoulish Goodies" set. They were stamped using black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock.  I die cut them using the second smallest stitched oval die. I also sponged the edges because it was too bright.  The words were set in place using Dimensionals.  a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make but not very colorful. I tried to find some cute Halloween stamps, ones that weren't too scary for the granddaughters.  I think they will have fun with this kitty!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
