A starry night for Halloween

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to create a starry night sky! This is a fun and easy card to make with the Spooky Sweets Bundle and the Twinkle Twinkle Builder Punch. Even if you only have this DSP, you can create your own version with supplies you already have on hand!

To create the front of this card, I first started with a scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock to punch out the moon and stars with the Twinkle Twinkle Punch. I took that scrap piece, placed it in my Stamparatus, put the moon cut-out back in place, and then lined up the moon stamp from Spooky Sweets to stamp in Crushed Curry ink. You can do this trick with just about any punch or framelit, just cut your cardstock big enough so that you can use the magnets to hold the paper in place:

You will also need use the Black Foil Sheet to punch out the bats and to cut out the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies:

Cut the DSP to 3 ¾” x 5”, adhere the moon, two of the bats, and largest star with Mini Dimensionals and use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the branch, smaller stars, and dots. For these smaller pieces, I used my Take Your Pick tool to first pick up the piece and then placed a small amount of glue with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. This helps place just where you want and eliminates making a mess with the glue:

This is then adhered to the 4” x 5 ¼” Crushed Curry cardstock base layer and then adhered to the Basic Black cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The inside is a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the moon and stars are stamped in Crushed Curry ink, the sentiment is in Memento ink, and I adhered the remaining bat with a Mini Dimensional:

Another quick and easy card to make multiples of! Another great alternative for the front is to use the Still Night Bundle, the branch and owl thinlits! That would be a super fun “alternative” Halloween card!

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
