Cute Halloween by Stampin’ Up

The Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper is just that…CUTE! There are little bats dressed as vampires, goofy skeletons with purple birds, and adorable cats. My family enjoys Halloween and trick-or-treat but we just keep things on the lighter side of life.

I decided that this year I would send a few more Halloween cards than I usually do. In particular, I was thinking about some older teens, college students, and young professionals. These people don’t expect anything from you. However, they would be excited to get a little “happy” in the mail.

All of these cards emphasize three things. First, you can see how varying colors of card bases change the look of the card. Second, you can see how the slight 1/8″ border helps to pop the DSP off the card. And finally, cards do not need to be complicated to look great!I pulled these cards together in no time at all. Just set up an assembly line and keep things rolling.

As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

The Seasons of Fun Stamp Set features adorable images of children celebrating various holidays. Halloween, Fall, and Christmas are all represented! Pet images are included as well. The DSP used on this card is from the Cute Halloween DSP package.

I enjoy coloring with my Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers. It reduces stress for me. Additionally, I love that we have so many coordinating colors. And isn’t that little skating girl precious?

This card just makes me smile! I love the colors and images on this card. Isn’t the kitty hiding in the leaves cute? This image reminds me of a photo that I have of my children in the leaves. And, it is still one of my all-time favorite photos!

To decorate the inside of my card, I pulled in a stamp from the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. I used the tiny trio of leaves in the corners. The background on the front of the card was created using this stamp as well.

Trodding through the snow to cut and gather a Christmas Tree has never looked so carefree and cute! The Designer Series Paper is from the Gingerbread & Peppermint package.

The inside greeting is part of the Christmas To Remember stamp set. But you can substitute any greeting that you like.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and watch my video. I hope that today’s card inspires you to pull out your supplies and make a card or two! As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!
