Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat for Amy's Inkin' Krew Monthly Team Blog Hop

 

Welcome to another Inkin’ Krew monthly blog hop! Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products. This month we are all creating projects with a “Halloween Fun" theme. I’m featuring two retired stamp sets as Halloween is not my bag and I just make one card a year for a family in Maine. The stamp sets are Spooky Cat and Graveyard Gate (from the 2017 Holiday Catalog). This is the first time I have used the Graveyard Gate set and I still haven't used the dies that go with it! See, I told you it wasn't my bag!!

My card was inspired by Christy Fulk. I will include the measurements after the list of hoppers. The card fits in an A2 envelope.

The card base is Basic Black. For the DSP, I used the Cute Halloween 6 x 6 DSP from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. My squares are Old Olive, Black Glitter Paper and Basic White. I stamped the witches hat and sentiment from the Spooky Cat Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink. The bat is from the Graveyard Gate Stamp Set. Before I adhered the Black Glitter paper to the Old Olive square, I punched a cat out of the center. Using another piece of Glitter Paper, I punched another cat using the Cat Punch in the Annual Catalog, page 150. I adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the back panel, I used stamps from Spooky Cat.

I'm entering my card in these three challenges:
