31 Nights of Halloween - Night 31 WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

Eeeeeee it's my FAVORITE day of the year!

And I'm really excited to announce all of the winners from our annual 31 Nights of Halloween SPOOKTCULAR blog party. Keep reading to find out if you're the lucky GRAND PRIZE WINNER...

But first I have the last Halloween card of the season to share with you.

Have you seen all the cool 6x6 patterned paper packs Whimsy Stamps has been releasing?! They've been super popular and make it super easy for quick handmade cards.

 For today's card I'm using one of my favorite sheets from the Haunted paper pack. I simply cut the portion of the paper image I liked best and adhered it to a black card base. The card is almost done (lol).

Then I added a strip of black glitter washi tape across the bottom.

I used the Halloween Postage clear stamp set to stamp the "BOO" and hand cut it out then used a foam dot to pop it up next to the owl.

I used the largest of the two fences from the Build-a-Grave die set, and glued it to the corner. Then I stamped the little tombstone also from the Halloween Postage set, hand cut it out and adhered it to the front to complete my card.

 So many of the Whimsy Stamps patterned papers have awesome scenes on them that can help make your cardmaking a breeze, what's your favorite pack?

And now for our 31 Nights of Halloween WINNERS!!

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 30

Hello, crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you tonight, and I have a quick and simple Interactive Slimline Halloween Card to share with you plus a video tutorial. 

This card is super simple. 
Die-cut the Slimline Film Strip and Slimline Hill House Die from Navy cardstock or any color you prefer. Save the bottom inlay frame when die-cutting the Film Strip Die. Die-cut pattern paper. The great thing about this card is you can pick and choose the scene you want from the Haunted Paper Pack to tell your own story. 

Trim a piece of cardstock to cover the back of the film strip die; I find it much easier to build the card and then cover the back to add to my card base. Cut the house out of the Slimline Hill House cut out.

Using Scotch tape secure the pattern paper in the film strip from the backside. 

Decide on the placement of the house on the lower part of the card, trace around the inner window lightly with pencil, and punch a small hole using hole punch or crop-a-dile.

Map out the placement of lights and secure in place with Scotch tape.
Add a small piece of vellum behind the window to be lit up, add mounting foam strips to the back of the house, and secure on the film strip.

Adding mounting foam to the back of the film strip around wiring and cover back with white cardstock. Using glue to the back and center on a white 100# slimline card base.

Stamp sentiments from the Grave Epitaphs and Halloween Postage Stamp Sets using navy ink, add foam adhesive strips to the back and adhere to the card. 

You can head back over to the first  31 Nights of Halloween Blog Post for prize information! 

As always, thanks for joining us! 

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 29

Hi Everyone :)

Welcome to Night 29 of the 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration. It's Faye here. Have you enjoyed the spookiness so far? I've been inspired by all the gorgeous projects and products.

I've had a hankering to colour another cat from the Spooky Kitties Clear Stamp Set by Dustin for a while, and this event has given me the perfect opportunity.

I've coloured him with Copics and then created an inky background, which I've teamed up with the Spider Web Frame Background Stamp.

I've used the Bold ABC Die Set to create my sentiment. I always squeeze my eyes shut and hold my breath when I cut a sentiment directly from a background. I die cut a couple of extra sentiments from black card and mounted those underneath the original from the background to give the 'Boo' a 3D effect. I love this effect, it's almost worth hyperventilating for!

And that's it! Is it time for a treat now?

Pink; R000, R30

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 28 - Special Guest Ashley Dearie

Tonight we welcome Ashley Dearie back to the blog as she shares some fun, Halloween party ideas.

 Hello, again, crafty friends; Ashley Dearie here!  I’m so excited to be returning to the Whimsy Blog tonight as a guest designer for Whimsy Stamps’ 31 Nights of Halloween Celebration, Night #28!  We’re inching closer and closer to the the big night – All Hallows’ Eve.  I know our kiddos are super excited!  But Halloween is looking a lot different these days, and I have some fun inspiration in store for those celebrating indoors this year, and simple treats kids of all ages will enjoy.  

Our youngest son loves insects, spiders, and everything creepy crawly (not me! yuck!), but even I’m in love with the cuddly little eight-legged guys in Whimsy’s Fuzzy Spiders stamp set!  They’re SO cute, I just had to create some spidery fun I knew our little guy would love.  

I paired the smaller spider in the set with my favorite ‘Spider Cider’ sentiment from the Digital Haunting Halloween Sentiments, which is also included in the Spirited Sentiments stamp set.  I printed out the sentiments in a variety of spooky colors and cut them into circles using dies similar to the Pierced and Stitched Circles die set.  I stamped the spiders in black ink and backed the tags with black cardstock.  

I attached each tag to mini bottles of sparkling apple cider (a.k.a. ‘spider cider’) with black and white baker’s twine.  I chose the grape-apple flavor to emphasize the Halloween theme with the purple hue (but any cider will do).  I stamped the ‘Yikes’ sentiment (also from the Fuzzy Spiders set) in coordinating colors onto paper flags wrapped around striped paper straws to make drinking easier for little hands.  

For an additional little treat, I filled mini cups with brightly colored sour gummy worms and added little ‘Creepy Crawlies’  labels using another sentiment from the Fuzzy Spiders set, stamped with additional spiders in coordinating colors.  And each cup received a festive wrapping of spider designs from the Hocus Pocus 6x6 Paper Pack.  To continue my theme, I added pipe-cleaner and candy spiders to the top of each cup lid.  Each surprise also got a coordinating little mini card also made using spiders and webs from Fuzzy Spiders set and patterned paper from the Hocus Pocus Paper Pack.  

Our boys absolutely loved this cute little surprise, and I hope you do, too.  Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a very Happy Halloween no matter how you choose to celebrate this year.  Only three days left, so stay tuned for more amazingly spooky creations! 

Thank you, Ashley, for these adorable party ideas!  To see more of Ashley's work, follow her on Instagram.

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 27


Hi crafty friends! Are you enjoying the month-long inspiration of Halloween and prizes? It’s Donna from the Whimsy Stamps Video Team, and I am sharing a cutesy Halloween card featuring the Candy Corn Dress Up stamp set.

I started by stamping out all of the images onto solar white cardstock with Copic friendly ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. Then I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out.

Copic Markers: E35, YR07, YR04, YR12, E34, Y15, Y08, Y00, B17, B13, B04, B02, YG17, YG03, N7, N5, N3, N1, N0, C3, C1, C00

For the background, I trimmed a piece of smooth cardstock down to 8.50” by 3.50” and ink blended the background using Distress Ink in Seedless Preserve, Picked Raspberry, and Dried Marigold.

I blended a small panel of smooth cardstock with Distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I die cut the panel with the grass die from the Grass and Cloud Edger Dies.

Next, I added water splatters and white diluted paint across both of the panels and set those aside to dry.

While the panels were drying, I die cut several trees from the Forest Majesty Die Set and added Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo to ink them.

At this point, I had all of the elements, and it was time to start assembling the card. I added the background panel using liquid adhesive to a slimline card base. I used foam tape to add dimension to the grass border and added in all of the images.

To complete this card, I trimmed a piece of black cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the stamp set, popped it up on foam adhesive on the card front, and finally, added the clouds from the Happy Sky stamp set.

I hope you are enjoying the 31 Nights of Halloween and are inspired by all of the projects so far, don’t forget to enter the grand prize giveaway on the Whimsy Stamps Blog!
