Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! Our talented team has created projects this month with the theme of Halloween Fun. Be sure to check out all the projects for great inspiration for Halloween, as it’s just around the corner!

I made a Halloween card with the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot bundle for our hop today. These little little owls are so cute, so I had to get them! Here’s my card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings designer series paper to a panel of Magic in the Night designer series paper and then adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I embossed a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock with the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder and adhered it on top. I then wrapped a length of Black glitter ribbon around the panels and made a knot on the side. I popped the panel to the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the little owl and spider and Boo! sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the frame from the Hippo & Friends Dies. I sponged the background with Rich Razzleberry and Bumblebee ink and colored the tree with Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I stamped another image on a smaller whisper White panel and cut the owl and spider out with the coordinating die from the Peek a Hoot Dies. I sponged the edges of these die cuts to match and colored the owl with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the spider with the Basic Black Stampin Blends.

I cut out a Bumblebee mat from the next larger Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the back of the stamped die cut. I cut out two spider webs from Vellum card stock with the die from the Peek a Hoot Dies and adhered them to the back of the layered die cuts. I popped the owl and spider on the front with dimensionals and popped the layered die cuts on the card front. I finished it off with three iridescent pearls.

I stamped the owl and pumpkin and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored the image in Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin Blends. I carefully inked up the spider with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it in the upper corner. I added a strip of Magic in This Night DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

A colorful fun card to celebrate Halloween! Here’s a close up of the bundle – the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot cling stamps with the Peek a Hoot Dies. Aren’t those owls so cute?
