Stampin' Up! Spooky Sweets Stamp Set

I just received a box of swap cards and I'll be sharing many more of them in the days to come.  However, I immediately fell in love with today's card created by Jan Carlson.  I love swapping cards with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  The ideas for how others use stamp sets adds so much to the fun of new stamp sets.  Jan used two stamp sets on this card, the Spooky Sweets stamp set and the Winter Woods stamp sets from the Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog. 

The colors used are beautiful.  The technique is brayering different colors over the lower portion of a Whisper White and other colors over the top part of the Whisper White portion.  The "moon" is a circle sticky note placed on the Whisper White card before the colors are brayed onto the card.  This is just a beautiful card, and I thank Jan Carlson for her creative color combinations and choice of stamps on this card.  



Directions for today's card:
  • Basic Black basecard  
  • Next layer is Whisper White with a circle masked off with a sticky note.  The bottom is a combination of  Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie with some Daffodil Delight where the trees are stamped.  The top is brayed with Gorgeous Grape and Blackberry Bliss and a hint of Cajun Craze.   
  • Then the trees from Winter Woods are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink  
  • The three bats are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink using the Spooky Sweets stamp set and then punched out with the Spooky Bats Punch. The largest bat is popped up on dimensionals

  • The sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a Whisper White circle punched out with a 1" circle punch 
  • The sentiment is matted with a Blackberry Bliss 1-1/4" circle 
  • The sentiment is accented with a Rhinestone and a tab of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon

I think Jan did an outstanding job with this card and I can't wait to try my hand using her techniques!  You can download free copies of the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog and Annual Catalogs at this link.
