Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday. Lately I’ve really been enjoying playing with the new Spooky Cat Bundle (Spooky Cat stamp set and Cat Punch) and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (DSP.) I used this great new items on today’s card,  along with Rhinestone Basic Jewels to make the cats’ eyes seem to glow (in the right light.) I think almost all of my customers have already bought this bundle and DSP, but if you haven’t, I highly recommend them. You can make cute projects or scary ones. I’ll be sharing more projects made with these, so stay tuned!

And be sure to scroll all the way down to check out the new FREE Merry Patterns Stamp Set promotion!

 

Here’s what I made:

In this photo, it looks like I drew a black dot on the centers of the green eyes, but it’s just a trick of the light. See other photos below.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pumpkin Pie card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces)
  • Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2″ x 5-1/4″ (black with skinny stripes)
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 3″ x 3/4″

Stamped with the Spooky Cat stamp set:

  • sentiment in Basic Black ink onto the Very Vanilla CS strip
  • sentiment in Pumpkin Pie ink over the Basic Black sentiment, but slightly offset
  • texture image in Pumpkin Pie ink down the left side of the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Very Vanilla CS piece

Cut using the Cat Punch:

  • 2 cats from the the DSP (orange cat from on one side, and the other cat from the other side of the DSP with dots)

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • both ends of the sentiment strip

Assembled the card:

  • 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of DSP glued onto the 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS, with about 1/8″ showing on the right side
  • then glued both cats to this top layer, with their tails intertwined (Get both cats straight and glued down, then glue down the tails, which will be sticking up a bit.)
  • glued this top layer onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • glued the Basic Black CS layer to the front of the card base
  • adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Optional: colored Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a green Sharpie marker (any alcohol marker should work) then applied them to the cats’ eyes. See the photo below showing the card with and without the rhinestone eyes.
