Holiday Home Halloween Greetings from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Good morning and welcome to a Stampin' Sarah! week of Halloween creativity and inspiration to celebrate the festivities. My girls are a bit young still for Trick or Treating, but we will be indulging in a little dressing up and popping around to visit family for a few little treats on Friday.

I spent a very lazy Sunday morning yesterday with a cuppa and a browse of Pinterest. It was while perusing my feed that I came across this card by Melissa Davies. I just fell in love with it so gave it my own Stampin' Sarah spin. And so was born my week of Halloween projects as I loved creating this so much. I will  be back on Wednesday and Friday to share some great Halloween treat ideas and fun gifts.

For this card I used a Pumpkin Pie card base (would you believe this colour is the reason I fell in love with Stampin' Up!? My very first order included a Pumpkin Pie ink pad and pack of card!). I then embossed a second Pumpkin Pie layer with the Filigree Frame Embossing Folder and mounted on to a layer of Rich Razzleberry.

To create the main focal image I started by sponging a 7.5cm square of Whisper White cardstock with Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry ink. I then stamped the spider, bats and trees in Basic Black. I stamped the tall house from the Holiday Home stamp set on to Old Olive card and cut the image out. I stamped the ghost and pumpkin on to a Whisper White scrap and hand cut the little images.

Once all elements were stamped and cut I simply glued and mounted with dimensionals. The final touch was a quick hand cut banner and the Happy Halloween greeting stamped in Tangerine Tango.
