Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Halloween Fun Fold for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for September! Today we are sharing “Halloween Fun” projects. You will find links at the bottom of my post to hop you along the way to my teammate’s projects. Be sure to visit them all to see how each interpreted the theme. I hope you will enjoy what I made for you!

I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set + Seasonal Swirls Dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog (page 58) to make this “Halloween Fun” card.  It is a fun fold that I saw presented by Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping.

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 8″ x 5-1/4″, scored at 4″ and 6″ (inside panel), the 4th largest die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the tag die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 2nd largest die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the pumpkin die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
  • Basic Black Cardstock: bat die cut and broom die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: pumpkin leaves die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: broom die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
  • Pattern Party Host DSP: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (front panel), 1-3/4″ x 5″ and 6″ x 2-1/4″ (env)

The Creating

I began by adhering the 4″ x 5-1/4″ DSP panel to the front of the Basic White Thick card base. I centered the 4th largest die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (I saved the cut out for another card).

Next, I stamped the “Wishing You A Trick-Or-Treating, Candy-Eating, Frightful-Delightful Time!” sentiment from A Wish for Everything Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink centered in the left (and largest) section of the Basic White inside panel. I added the bats from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped “Happy Halloween” from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set on the tag die cut in Pumpkin Pie Ink.

I adhered the 1-3/4″ x 5″ DSP to the middle section of the panel. I folded the inside panel so that it makes a valley at the 4″ score and a peak at 6″ score (this will “hide” the DSP panel). I adhered the largest panel (with the sentiment) to the inside of the card base, leaving an even margin around the edges. I closed the card front and applied adhesive to the folded edge that is visible through the die cut opening and inserted the Pumpkin Pie Stitched So Sweetly die cut into the opening to glue it into place (being sure to line up the scalloped edges). Super easy!

I stamped the bats on the top left corner of the Basic White Stitched So Sweetly die cut and on the front of the envelope. I snipped the broom handle from the Bumblebee broom die cut and adhered the “straw” portion over the Basic Black broom die cut. I dry fit the Seasonal Swirls die cuts onto the Basic White Stitched So Sweetly die cut and then adhered them in place. The bat, the top pumpkin leaf and the pumpkin are popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The others are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the decorated Basic White die cut onto the Pumpkin Pie die cut (in the opening) with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the sentiment tag with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals being sure to center it so that it did not impeded the opening of the card front. Lastly, I adhered the remaining DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips for a coordinating set.

    Stampin’ Up! Beauty of the Earth DSP Scraps Thanksgiving Card

    This is a fun card that utilizes little paper scraps from your favorite Designer Series Paper. It doesn’t require measuring or coloring and the stamping is minimal. I used scraps from the Beauty of the Earth 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper from the 2020-22 Annual Catalog for this Thanksgiving card. The sentiments are from A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set and the dies from Harvest Dies in the July – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. I hope you enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock:  4 1/2″ x 11”, scored at 5 1/2” (card base)
    • Bumblebee Cardstock:  two wheat die cuts from Harvest Dies (and scrap strips if you’d like)
    • Beauty of the Earth 12×12 DSP: scrap strips (mine range from 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick and 3 1/4″ to 4″ long) and 6″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope flap)

    The Creating

    I placed the wheat die cut onto Bumblebee Cardstock and roughly cut around it with Paper Snips. I then placed the cardstock onto the Foam Adhesive Sheet and trimmed it to match (I pieced two foam pieces together longways to accommodate the length). I peeled the release paper on one side of the foam and applied it to the cardstock. I passed it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the wheat die, then flipped the clear part of the sandwich over (not disturbing the contents) and ran it through again, upside down. I find this ensures a clean cut through the thickness of the foam. I cut another wheat die from Bumblebee Cardstock without the adhesive.

    I dry fit the scrap strips of DSP on the card front to finalize placement and do any desired trimming. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card front. I peeled the remaining release paper from the foam on the wheat die cut and placed it on the card front. I used Early Expresso Ink to stamp the sentiments from the A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set on the card front and the inside.

    I glued two DSP strips to the bottom edge of the inside of the card and then adhered the 2nd wheat die cut. I trimmed excess overhang from the bottom edge with the Paper Snips. I added a 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Trim bow with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (it fell in a recessed area) to embellish the card front. I adhered DSP to the Basic White Medium Envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tip: apply the glue to the flap) and trimmed the excess DSP with Paper Snips.

    Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card! If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!
