Stampin’ Up Happy Scenes Hearth and Home Halloween Card

Following on from Saturday’s card I am sticking with the Halloween theme for a few projects this week including my first experience with one of Stampin’ Up’s kits. Anyway back to todays card, it raised an issue for me and it maybe something you struggle with……”perfectionism”.


For todays card I used some Whisper White A4 Thick Cardstock for my card base cut 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches for a top folding card. I then used some Pumpkin Pie A4 Cardstock cut to 3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches. I took this piece of cardstock and using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder ran it through my BigShot.  While my BigShot is out I took some Whisper White A4 Cardstock  and the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies and die cut my window frame.


Using the Happy Scenes Stamp Set , the pumpkin image in particular, I stamped this in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on some Whisper White cardstock and then using some Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink and Old Olive Classic Ink to sponge an autumn sky and some grass around the tree. Using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker I coloured in the pumpkins.  I adhered my window frame to my coloured piece with some Tonbow Mono Mutli Glue. I adhered my embossed piece of cardstock with some Fast Fuse to my card base and then popped my window frame up on some Stampin’ Dimensionals.


To finish today’s card I took a small piece of A4 Vellum and stamped my sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed this with some White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Heat Tool. I adhered this to my card and finished off with a few Candy Dots.  I wasn’t completely happy  with the finish of this card, I wanted to attempt some card surgery but stopped myself. I often struggle with my perfectionism when it comes to finishing projects but I am learning to appreciate that what I am not keen on others may really appreciate.

Thanks for stopping by today!
