Yes, its time to start thinking about Halloween. October is almost here! The Spooky Cat stamp set and matching Cat Punch are just the thing to start the season off! Recently, I made name tags for a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator meeting and the focal piece on the card was one of the left overs. Our meeting was all about the new Occasions Catalog and getting ready for the upcoming holiday season. It was a great day and I enjoyed seeing other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and learning new things from them! Many thanks to Sally Nussbaum for organizing a great day for us! Here’s a picture of the name tags:
Because I had one left over, I decided, why not make a card? I had been wanting to try a Halloween themed card using the Wood Textures DSP Stack. It turned out to be the perfect backdrop for this spooky cat! I simply layered in some Spooky Nights DSP and stamped a sentiment from Spooky Nights and I was done! The name tags were done using the cat punch and cutting out the cat from a piece of the Spooky Nights DSP. The pumpkin is cut out from the same set of DSP. This is a fabulous idea from Stampin’ Up and I have created several projects by doing this. The leaf is from Painted Harvest and punched out using the leaf punch. Hurrah Stampin’ Up! for giving us more punches this year!
It is time to get in “spook mode” everyone, so take a look at the new 2017 Holiday Occasions catalog by clicking on the “CATALOGS” tab above and see all the wonderful new stamps, papers and ideas.
