It’s Friday! I’ll confess, I used to be more excited about Friday when I was working. But, that’s a story for another time! Now Friday means “Fun Fold” and today will not disappoint. I’ve gone to an oldie that I think you will like, the Scallop Tag Topper Card with a Halloween twist.
I think I m beginning to embrace purple as a Halloween color. Took me long enough. And is that spider just the cutest!
Design Notes for Scallop Tag Topper Card:
This card is so much easier than it looks! Creating the little tab closure is easy. A few years back, I made a video to show how it is done. The video has a few little rough spots – it was one of my first videos – but the directions are clear.
I also decorated the inside with some extra of the adorable Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper.
And, I couldn’t help myself, I decorated the envelop as well!
Supply List for Scallop Tag Topper Card:
Hope you are looking forward to a great weekend.
Oh! Thank you to all who voted for my card over at Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights. I came in 5th and will be able to participate in the blog hop on Oct. 30.
Please feel free to leave a comment. I love hearing from you!
Well, Pretty Kitty is one of those stamp sets that, to me, needs just the right occasions. Well, cats, Halloween, why not?
How cute is this little kitty prancing on the fence?
Design Notes for Pretty Kitty Halloween Card:
The kitty was fun to do. I stamped him with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock. I used the light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends marker to color him in. A little light Pumpkin Pie Blend for the cute little bow. For his ears, I used some of the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend. Next, I used one of the Journaling Pens to outline his mouth and nose. Finally, I did some fussy cutting with my Paper Snips.
The fence was easy. I trimmed a piece of Basic Black card stock with the zig zig Framelit from the Playful Pennants Framelits set. I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to score each fence part and then sponged on just a bit of White Craft ink on each crease.
Are you wondering about the “Boo” on the front? it’s a left over from the September Paper Pumpkin kit!

This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit is called Frights and Delights. It is really cute. You get to decorate tags for little treat bags. Each kits contains enough materials for 24 treat bags!
To be honest, the bags are really a little bigger than I thought. I put in six miniature Hersey bars and it really can hold more! I made up all of the bags but didn’t have nearly enough candy to fill them. Back to the store!
One of my favorite things to do with my Paper Pumpkin kits each month is to create something from the left over materials.
Frights and Delights Left Overs Project!
This time I took the left over stickers and twine and used some Graceful Glass Vellum to create a little votive candle holder.
Here’s the other side.

Today the new Holiday Catalog goes live. I know everyone is excited about all of the great Christmas items. And I am, really I am. But I love Halloween. I always have. Costumes, candy, what more could you want? So when I saw the Spooky Sweets stamp set in the new catalog (Page 51) I knew I had to have it. It is, I am sure, intended to make tags and labels for Halloween treats. I know I will use it for that. But, in the meantime, I made a Halloween card. Why not?
Isn’t this cute!
Design Notes for Spooky Sweets Card:
I really like the stamp in this set that is sort of just a texture. It reminded me of a late fall sky. It was the perfect backdrop for the bats.
This stamp set, Spooky Sweets, is part of a bundle that includes the Spooky Bats Punch. I tried to adhere the bats just in the center so that I could pull up the wings a bit to give it all some dimension. The Silver Glimmer Paper added some nice shine. I used the Twinkle Builder Punch for the moon. Boy, am I glad I bought that punch! Finally I added some Shimmer Ribbon and some Rhinestones. The Rhinestones were clear but I made them black with permanent marker.

Just a quick Sunday afternoon post. Yes, it’s been a Winning Week. Two very cool things happened this week. First, I landed at the #1 spot for the Blog Highlights I asked everyone to vote for. SO EXCITED. In November, I’ll be in an International Blog Hop. Trust me, I’ll keep you posted. (No voting required this time.) Here’s the card that won!
This morning I found out that one of my recent cards has been selected as a favorite by Splitcoast Stampers. How could Wilburn not be a winner?
There are just a few more days to take advantage of the Designer Series Paper Buy Three, Get One Free sale.
Hope you are having a fun day. It’s rainy here in lower Delaware. A perfect crafting day.
