Halloween Meets SC142

So I thought I'd try another card with the SC142 layout. I wanted it to be a longer card though, so I went with a 3x6 format so that it was elongated like I wanted but still would fit in envelopes that I have. I guess I could have done letter-size too, but I've never done one of those and didn't really want to yet. Anyway, this card is rather simple, I hope you like it but I'm not too sure if I do. I think it's because I didn't get to use a single image on the right, I didn't have anything that fit - even Booglie Eyes guys were too wide - so I went with what I had, oh well.

This close-up (Make sure you click on the picture - talk about CLOSE UP!!! look at the texture on that card stock (not SU!'s "ultra-smooth Whisper White, this is again Papertrey's White CS) is of the little pumpkin from the Bitty Boos Too set (part of the Fall Frenzy special you can check out as a link in my sidebar on the right) shows how I actually rock-n-rolled the little guy ( stamped him off first, then rolled him in the same ink). Like I mentioned, I needed a smaller image than I had originally planned on using. I wanted to use the Carved and Candlelit tall, skinny pumpkin while I had this card in my head and in its beginning stages, but once I stamped that giant "happy" sentiment too much of my card was taken up :) So, I stamped two of the little pumpkins, adhered them to some Basic Black, and popped that up on some dimensionals on my card. I would love to hear what you think (as usual!!)!!

Stamps: Bitty Boos Too, Happy Everything, Flexible Phrases
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Black StazOn
Paper: White CS (from Papertrey), Basic Black CS, Pumpkin Pie CS, Creepy Crawly DS Paper
Accessories: Piercing tool and guide, Black brads, Black grosgrain, stapler


  1. BOO! haha - I'm really looking forward to Halloween. Maybe I'll just have to make this card! you know, the Jayci-version because yours are oh-so-perfect! hope things are going well! :)

  2. Personally...I like it a lot. I think it adds character to have the dual images there. The power of numbers LOL.Great job on the sketch.Jane

  3. I love what you did with this layout! Great job!

  4. Great card with this layout!! A nice change from the other Halloween cards I've seen out there. Love the stamps used for the sentiment. Thanks for sharing.
