Get double duty from your stamp sets

Get double duty from your stamp sets by using them for both card-making and scrap-booking!

Hey Guys!

First off, I am going to take you back to my childhood and hear my Mom’s words that Christmas shouldn’t have commercials until AFTER Thanksgiving! So, in that vein, should Halloween be shown now? Of course, I believe it should be since I am doing it! Generally, Halloween is my favorite Holiday to scrapbook so I thought I would make a card using the stamp sets I get EVERY year so I get double duty out of them. Here is what I made:

For some reason, Halloween is my Favorite time of year. Funny thing, I named a blog post that, check it out here! Is it because the air is cooler, or the candy? I say it is because it is so much fun to scrapbook, every year I have to do a NEW page! Since it would not be good to have the same layout in the same book. Well, I thought that my Halloween stamps would make a great card too! Of course my grand-kids love getting mail, so this is perfect! Besides, might as well get double duty from my stamp sets, right? By the way the stamp set I used is called Hallows Night Magic from Stampin’ Up!

As always, here is the specifics for this card:

  • Stamps: Hallows Night Magic Bundle
  • Inks: Pretty Peacock, Memento Black
  • Blends: Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green
  • Paper: Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, Very Vanilla 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2) 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap, Black Glitter 5 1/4″ x 4″ (I cut out center so I can use it later), 4 1/2″ x 2 2/3″ (for behind label), Magic in This Night DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap for inside.
  • Misc: Iridescent Pearls, dimensionals, 1 1/2″ Metallic Mesh ribbon
