Halloween…it’s coming!

Add some sparkle to your Halloween card with Glitter Washi Tape!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which kicks off my Halloween card making season featuring the Scary Cute Bundle and Glitter Washi Tape! This super cute and easy card is perfect for Halloween, and I just love the added bling of the Glitter Washi Tape! I don’t know about you, but I have never had much luck with washi tape and just felt that it wasn’t for me, chalk it up to operator error or even lack of imagination, just my opinion. However, I thought I would try out this new washi tape in the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog and I am pleasantly pleased! The washi tape is very easy to use, you can reposition easily, and it will still stick to the cardstock, which for me was always an issue that washi tape would not stick completely after repositioning it. I don’t know if it’s a little thicker because it is glittery, but I’m happy how my card turned out! It’s a great way to give your card that glittery sparkle without the mess of glitter! Lol!

The base layer for the card front is Basic White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and I used each color of the Glitter Washi Tape to create the stripe across this middle of the cardstock, using my grid paper as a guide to place each strip of washi tape straight across:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Use the large frame die to die-cut from Very Vanilla cardstock and use a Blender Brush with Daffodil Delight ink to color as shown. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the figure in Memento ink and colored in the lantern with a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

2. Use the large frame die to die-cut from Basic Black cardstock and then use the smaller frame die with the tree limbs to die-cut out from the middle of the large frame. I used five of the bat dies, which I also placed inside of the smaller frame at the same time to die-cut out, there is enough room for them and uses the left-over cardstock that you would discard.

I used liquid glue to adhere the layered die-cut frames together, placed dimensionals on the back to adhere to the base layer over the washi tape, and use the putty end of my Take Your Pick to pick up the die-cut bats to use liquid glue to adhere to the base layer as shown. This completed piece is adhered to a Granny Apple Green cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, the sentiment is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink, the moon in Daffodil Delight ink, and the bats in Memento ink:

For the coordinating Basic White Envelope, I stamped the bat stamp two times in the bottom corner in Memento ink:

How cute is this quick and easy Halloween card?? This is also a great layout to make multiples of, just change out the stamped image or use the house or cat dies instead!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! 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! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
