Greeting Card Kids Halloween Pumpkin Card

I made this card for a swap. I normally don’t do Halloween cards but this little girl was too cute to resist.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with Basic Black. Then, I used Old Olive card stock, embossed with the Big Shot and Square Lattice Embossing Folder, and die cut with the Top Note Bigz Die. The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain, wrapped around the top note layer.

For the main image, I stamped the pumpkin girl from Greeting Card Kids in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock. I colored in the image with SU Markers (Dusty Durango, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry, Blush Blossom, Blushing Bride, and Basic Black and Copic Black).

After coloring, I used 2 Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds on the pumpkin. The Black Copic Marker must have been wet still because the glitter stuck to the hat as well. It was an unintended but welcome effect.

Then, I used the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the image and attached a little “Boo” tag with a Circle Rhinestone Brad. The “boo” is from Tiny Tags and the punch I used is the Tiny Tag Punch.

Hearted Thanks

This is a non-SU stamp that I bought years ago called Hearted Thanks. The label on the stamp is colored exactly like this, which inspired my colors for the rest of the card. I used Copic Markers to color in the stamped image, then cut it out.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with Soft Suede textured card stock. I used the Signo White Gel Pen to make some squiggles along the sides.

Across the front, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon and tied it in the center with white string. Then, I looped the string through the Designer Buttons-Brights Collection and tied a double knot. A mini glue dot behind the ribbon and one behind the button keeps everything tight.

Finally, I took the white string and looped it through a hole I punched in the stamped image (the paper piercer makes a nice hole for this size string). I tied the ends around the button and cut off any excess. Two stampin dimensionals behind the stamped image keep it in place, but you could also leave it hanging freely.

Another version I did uses the Decorative Label Punch. I layered the stamped image onto Poppy Parade card stock punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. Then, I added two Rhinestone Brads to the sides.

1 1/4″ Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon was wrapped around the soft suede card stock and I attached the label to the ribbon with glue dots.

Simple and Sweet Snowglobe Christmas Card


This is a sample Christmas card I made for my sister using Sweet Snowglobe from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It’s a single stamp, offered for $8.95 and it coordinates with the Sweet Treat Cups. Since this is going to be mailed, I decided not to use the cups (postage for 40+ cards would be crazy!)

For the base, I used Real Red Textured Card stock, layered with Old Olive and Whisper White. The top corners of each layer were rounded with the Corner Chomper, but you could also use the Corner Rounder Punch on the two single layers.

I used the SU Markers to color the snowglobe (Real Red, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Old Olive). Then, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the snowy parts with the 2 Way Glue Pen.

To continue the glittery theme, I added 3 Glimmer Brads (in Real Red, Old Olive, and Soft Suede–Brights and Neutrals collection). By using the cropadile, I made sure each brad would be lined up.

Across the top, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in Real Red ink, paper pierced below it and added some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.

The White layer is adhered with stampin dimensionals to the base.

And yes, I know it’s September and I just made a Christmas card. It’s a sickness!
