Trick or Treat, Scary or Sweet?

Hi stampers!  This card is sweet for sure!  I've been wanting to use this little guy every since I got the set at convention!!!  It is a new hostess set from the upcoming holiday mini and we all got it for free as our last give away at convention!!!  And we all know I LOVE free stamps!  The great thing about this set besides the fact that it's just uber cute is that most of the images work well with our punches!  Take this little owl for example...he was easy to punch out with the owl punch:

 Isn't he cute????  You can see he's a bit sparkly too as I inked him up with back craft ink and then embossed him with some iridescent ice embossing powder.  He just needed to be sparkly!  I simply used my pumpkin pie ink pad and a blender pen to color in his beak and cute little trick or treat bag.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Warmest of wishes (hostess), Out on a limb, grateful greetings
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, pumpkin pie, daffodil delight
Ink:  basic black craft, basic black, pumpkin pie, daffodil delight, more mustard
Accessories:  Circle punch, decorative label punch, owl punch, scallop squares duo die, spider web embossing folder, silver smooch spray, basic black scalloped polka dot ribbon

The rest of the card is pretty straight forward and I thought this cute owl would be PERFECT with the out on a limb set also from the mini.  I just LOVE how our sets inter-mix so well....have I mentioned that?  LOL!  I also loved how the sentiment from grateful greetings worked too since the little guy has a trick or treat bag!  You'll note that I did use some of the scalloped polka dot ribbon, I love that stuff!  I also embossed the black panel with the spider web folder and then hit it with a good spray of the silver smooch!  Love that stuff too, it can add SO much to a card yet it's so simple!  The last note I'd like to make is about the moon.  I sponged the edges with some daffodil delight and then with some more mustard to make it spooky and give it a little depth!

Hope you liked it!  Don't forget that you can earn this cute set for FREE starting September 1!  That's only a week away!   Happy stamping!


  1. Oooooo, I love this one! The little owl is so gosh darn cute. Love the embossing folder & the owl works perfectly with the out on a limb set. Of course I just had a party last week, but will be coming up with my own party sometime after Sept 1st so I can get this guy & the other wonderful stamps in the set. Can't pass it up when they go so well with the punches. One of my favorite things about SU. L

  2. You made the PERFECT card with this little guy!! And y'know what? I bought the spider web embossing folder JUST to use this little guy on a card! I know I could make a card without it, but figured it would be cuter with the spider web. Plus we can use that embossing folder to make veins in leaves??

    LOVE the card!!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
