Hi friends, Tammy here with a not-so-spooky Halloween themed 1 Stamp, 3 Ways feature! This month, we are featuring the brand new Fox Costumes Before N’ Afters! It’s an adorable set featuring foxes and birdies in costume, ready to brew up some Spooky fun!!

Trick or Tweet Card

This A2 card starts with Bristol smooth cardstock cut using the largest rectangle from the Outside In Stitched Rectangles. I created a cloudy background using the Cloudy Stencil. Starting from the top, I blended Milled Lavender, Wilted Violet, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. I then splattered some white and black acrylic paint, thinned with water, onto stenciled panel to give it some interest. Next, I attached the inked background to an A2 Black Licorice card base.

Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:
Fox Costumes Before N’ Afters/ Coordinating Dies
Keep On Swimming (cauldron)/ Coordinating Dies
Rub-a-Dub-Dub (bubbles)/ Coordinating Dies
All the Clouds (clouds, moon)/ Coordinating Dies
Costume Party (pumpkin)/ Coordinating Dies
Open Me/ (bird on bottom branch)/ Coordinating Dies
Happy Haunting (bats)/ Coordinating Dies
Season’s Tweetings (branches)

I arranged all the stamped images onto my card, using foam tape on some for dimension. The sentiment from was embossed on a strip of Black Licorice Cardstock with White Embossing Powder. Next, I cut the large “TREAT” sentiment from Canned Pumpkin and Black Licorice cardstock with Cole’s ABC’s. I layered the orange letters on top of the black letters to create a shadow; then attached to my card to complete it.

Haunted House Card

This is an A6 card, so I cut a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock, measuring 4 ½ X 6 ¼”. I ink blended the background with Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade, and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks. And then I splattered it with some water and thinned black acrylic paint for interest. To create the moon, I cut a circle from white cardstock using the Small Stitched Circle Stackables; then I and dabbed on some Manatee Ink . Then I generously sprayed it with water, swirling the ink with a paintbrush to create a really cool spooky effect.

Once dry, I attached the moon to the background. I attached the tree and fence from Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape and the Spooky Fence Border . Next, I created the haunted house, using Build-a-House and Build-a-House Halloween Add-On dies and attached it to my background. I ink blended a Grassy Border with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn inks; then I attached it to my card using foam tape for dimension.

Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:
Fox Costumes Before N’ Afters/ Coordinating Dies
Tiny Halloween (spider, sentiment)/ Coordinating Dies

I arranged the images onto my card, attaching some with foam tape for dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Tiny Halloween with Black Licorice ink onto the grassy border to complete my card.

Slimline Cauldron Card

My last card is a fun slimline design and features a custom Cauldron Shaker! I will show you how to create one using Lawn Fawn dies.

I used the Snowy Backdrop to add detail to the top of a Large Slimline panel. It will divide the panel, but we will attach it to our card base for a seamless finish. I blended distress oxide inks in Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, and Ripe Persimmon on the top of the panel. And then, I inked the bottom with Wilted Violet. This panel was then attached to a Black Licorice card base.

Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:
Fox Costumes Before N’ Afters/ Coordinating Dies
Rub-a-Dub-Dub (bubbles)/ Coordinating Dies
Tiny Halloween (spider) / Coordinating Dies
Christmas Dreams (sleeping Cat)/ Coordinating Dies
Say What? Pets (cat)/ Coordinating Dies
Den Sweet Den (books)/ Coordinating Dies

Instructions for the Cauldron Shaker

I cut 3 black Stitched Circle Frames and 3 black curved pieces with the Slide On Over die; (this will create the lip of the cauldron).  Next, using Bristol smooth cardstock, I cut the largest circle from the Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables. Then cut the feet of the cauldron from black cardstock using the tail from the Tiny Gift Box Cat Add-On.

Attach the black curved slider piece to the black circle frame as shown in the picture. Then cut off the excess frame where the curves meet. Do this for all three circle frames.

Glue two of the three cauldron frames together (we will be adding acetate to the third). Next, ink blend the white circle with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks; splattering with a little water to create “bubbles”. Attach the cauldron frame on top of the ink blended circle with strong adhesive, trimming the excess acetate.

Cut a piece of acetate using the largest circle from the Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables; attach it to the back of the cauldron frame.

Add foam tape along the edges of the cauldron, making sure there are no gaps. Next, add sequins, beads, glitter, jewels, or whatever you would like to fill your cauldron. To avoid any static on the acetate, I used a Powder Tool Applicator before closing the shaker.

Lastly, add the feet of the cauldron by attaching the cat tails behind it; (using the reverse side of the die for the left cauldron foot).

Now that the Cauldron is complete I attached the cauldron near the bottom of the card. I tucked a Stitched Circle, inked with Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed, behind it. Then I arranged all the colored images onto my card, using foam tape on some for dimension.

I used Stickles Star Dust on the bubbles for a little sparkle. Next, the sentiment from Fox Costumes Before N’ Afters was white heat-embossed onto a strip of black cardstock. The bold “WICKED” sentiment was created using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs to cut Sugarplum and Black Licorice cardstock. I layered the Sugarplum letters over the black, just slightly offset, and attached to the card to complete it.

Chari joins us today to share an interactive Magic Picture Changer card that features Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters in a unique get well card! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks for watching!

I love how Chari used Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters, a Halloween set, in a whimsical way on this interactive get well card! Here is the little fox at the doctor’s office before getting an x-ray.

Using the Magic Picture Changer and the fox skeleton white-embossed on black cardstock, Chari cleverly displays the fox’s x-ray! She included the cute nurse birds and bird patient from Get Well Soon and Get Well Before ‘n Afters!

With a combination of Fall Fling 6×6 paper, Into the Woods Remix 6×6 paper and a stamped pattern, Chari created a fun medical office backdrop!

Thanks for showing us a new way to look at Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters, Chari! This is such a clever and fun card!

Elena’s Bear-themed Party Decorations

For this month’s party post, Elena created fun decorations to celebrate her kids’ completing their first week of school! These super cute ideas would also be perfect to celebrate a birthday or to make an ordinary day special!

Elena combined the bears from Den Sweet Den and Snow Much Fun to make sweet little scenes for the treat boxes, cupcake toppers, drink bottles and a super cute sign!

Elena created a fun sign to let her kid’s know she is “beary” proud of them! She used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with a computer generated sentiment! For the cute scene she used Snow Much Fun bears. She used our new Over the Mountain Borders stamps and used Artichoke and Crunchy Leaf ink to build the scenes on all of the decorations!

Elena created the cupcake toppers with simple Stitched Circles and a cute picnic scene! After inking the background, she combined Crazy Antics (picnic basket and blanket), Den Sweet Den bears, Tree Before ‘n Afters (apple) and Ho-Ho-Holidays (plate of cookies).

For the Scalloped Treat Boxes, Elena added napping bears inside their Stitched Den!

The little tag from Scalloped Circle Gift Tag has a computer generated message. Elena tied it to the box with a Blue Jay cord bow!

Thank you for sharing this adorable party idea, Elena! I’m sure it was a wonderful surprise for your kids!
