Global Stamping Friends Hop – Halloween

Hi everyone!

It’s time for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, and it really is global!! This hops around every month on the first Friday. There are folks all around the world joining this, so please take a look at all the fun stuff people have to share. Each month is a different theme, and this month it’s Halloween!

For the past few years, we have had some unintentional pumpkin vines in our yard, and have had dozens of pumpkins each year. This summer we finally cleaned it all up, so sadly, I have no more pumpkins. That is why I chose pumpkins for my Halloween card!  Here is my creation:

I used the Hostess special stamp set, Merry Patterns, and paired it up with Season to Sparkle to get the Happy Halloween and spooky bird! That little bird fit right in perched up on top of the cute swirl!
The Designer Series Paper is the Painted Autumn, and is one of the packs on sale just for a few more days during the Buy 3 get 1 Free special.
Here’s a tip for this one – I actually cut the rectangle, then cut the pumpkins from the middle of it on the back side. You don’t see that part anyway, so no sense in wasting good pumpkins!
Some sponging on the white space, and some Burlap ribbon give it a more rustic feel.
One thing that is completely new is how I colored the words!!  Stampin’ Up is going to be releasing new alcohol markers, called Stampin’ Blends!  Right now you can only get them for a short time, and ONLY if you are a demonstrator!
If you want to join my team, you can get these in your starter kit!! Just contact me to learn more, or click here to join. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this not-so-spooky Halloween card, as I sure did! Don’t forget to leave a comment and visit all the other wonderful stops along the hop today!
