Pick of the Patch, Halloween Card, Stampin' Up! 2023

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a Halloween card I found on Pinterest to share with you. You can see the original card here. I chose this card because I struggled with the Designer Series Paper (DSP) image.  I was thinking I probably would not be using it because the other side had the fun skeletons on it that have a matching die. But how many of those cards can you make?  I did manage to find a part of the DSP that had a color skeleton that I was not one of my favorites. Please read on to see how the card was made.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock and textured it with the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. 

The DSP is from the "Them Bones" 12" x 12" package was cut at 5-1/4" x 2". I took some black and white checked ribbon (mine is retired) that I cut at 6". I taped the ends over the to the backside using scotch tape. Then I glued piece to the card base.

I die cut the Cajun Craze circle using the 9th circle in "Deckled Circles" die set. Then I die cut a Very Vanilla one using the 10th die from the same set.

On the Very Vanilla circle I stamped the words from the "Pick of the Patch" and were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink. 

Next the pumpkins were stamped. The smaller one was stamped using Pumpkin Pie ink and the face was added using black Memento ink. And the other pumpkin was stamped using Cajun Craze ink. They are from the "Pick of the Patch" set.

Two leaves and stems were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink. The pumpkins, stems, and leaves were punched out using the matching punch.

The pumpkins were set on top of the circle to see where the little leaves would be stamped. The pumpkins were moved and the little leaves were stamped using Wild Wheat ink. Then the pumpkins were added. The tall one was glued in place and the smaller one is set in place using Dimensionals. The leaves and stems were glued in place.

The circle piece was added to the front of the card using Dimensionals.  I tied a know using a small piece of ribbon. I didn't measure it because I just tied it while it was still on the spool.

I took some retied gems I had and colored them using the dark Cajun Craze Blends pen. I set them in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I like how it turned out. I changed my card to a Halloween card instead of a thank you card.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Halloween card,
