13 Nights of Halloween - Day 1

     Well, it has been awhile since my last post. Life has been a complete roller coaster ride these last few months, but now I am ready to get my business going again.
     Today for you I have my series called 13 Nights of Halloween. Each day I will be sharing with you a new Halloween project ranging from cards to treats to a cute haunted house treat holder. All the items I have made use only Stampin' Up! products and I will included the ingredients for each project and a link to my 24/7 online store to purchase each item. Well, enough of that lets get on with today's project!
     For you today I have a cute card I have made using the stamp set called Cookie Cutter Halloween. Along with this stamp set, I also used Spooky Fun, and Ghoulish Grunge. I almost always start off with an A2 size card either vertical as seen here or horizontal. This size is a standard among card makers. It is nothing but a 8-1/2"x 11" paper cut in half either way and then folded in half. The card comes out to be 4-1/4"x 5-1/2". I also used the Halloween Night series in the paper, baker's twine, and enamel dots. I first stared by stamping the vampire in Basic Black onto a piece of Whisper White. Next, I colored him in with the Stampin' Up Write Markers in Perfect Plum, Real Red, and Daffodil Delight. I used the Gold Wink of Stella pen on his medallion. Then I punched him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I next cut the 2 ovals out using my Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits, the smaller one in Pumpkin Pie, the larger one in Basic Black and then I adhered them together with my Snail. I then used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the vampire onto these ovals and set it aside.

     For the card, I cut a piece of the Halloween Night DSP to 4"x 5-1/4. Next, I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 1-1/4"x 5-1/4" and stamped the dripping blood stamp from Ghoulish Grunge at the top in Real Red. I then used my Big Shot and the Brick Wall TIEF to emboss it. I adhered it onto my paper using my Fast Fuse. The Fast Fuse works better with the dry embossed things as it is a stronger adhesive. Next, I tied the Halloween Night Baker's Twine around the paper three times and adhered in the back. Then I adhered this paper onto a cut A2 sized piece of Basic Black with my Snail. I put the vampire piece on the right side of the card using more Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, I stamped Eek! onto the card using this stamp from Spooky Fun in Pumpkin Pie. I surrounded it with three Halloween Night Enamel Dots. I had not done it yet, but you may want to place a 4"x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White on the inside of the card so you are able to write a note to whoever you are sending this to. All done!
Here are the details:
