October Pals Blog Hop -- Halloween or Harvest?

Welcome to the October Pals BLog Hope where we are celebrating an early Halloween and Harvest season. This month we are sharing Halloween and Fall projects using our wonderful Stampin' Up! supplies.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from Dawn Tidd's Tiddbits from Dawn. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you can see all of the amazing creations.

I don't send out Halloween cards, but I will be able to add this to a treat that I plan on giving out. I'm not into very creepy images, so I chose to use the versatile Boo-tiful Bags Photopolymer Stamp Set that came in September's Paper Pumpkin kit. I love how the kits show you how you can use the stamps, paper and accessories, but that you can create whatever you want to using the supplies. And there are refill kits available if you want to make more of what comes in that fun little box every month!

My card base is Naturals Ivory card stock. I used my paper snips to cut little slits along eht edges to keep my Black Baker's Twin in place. I hope it looks like a spider web to you!

Here I chose to color my sentiment using Stampin' Write Markers in Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo Twist. My tree image is Basic Black and Blackberry Bliss. 

Under my sentiment tag, I used Blackberry Bliss patterned paper from the 2014 In Color paper stack. Both tags were cut from the Chalk Talk Framelits using my Big Shot. I embellished the tag with some Tangelo Twist Sequins and Black Baker's Twine from the same Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Thank you for looking! I hope you will use my comment box to let me know what you think. 

Now it's time to hope along to Amy Hoptay's Inking of You! blog for the next creation! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month!!

Cute card and love how you wrapped your baker's twine. I am not into Halloween either and your design could be easily used for other occasions. TFS

Patti, this certainly has given me some good ideas! Thanks for sharing!!

Dawn Tidd said...

Cute, Patti! I don't send Halloween cards either but I like how you've used other parts from projects to make such a cute card!

Terri Orr said...

This is a very cute "non-skeery" halloween card! And it definitely looks like a spider web with that twine--great idea!

Carol Carriveau said...

When I first looked at your creation, I was a bit stymied but then I saw the spider legs and the colors and the shape and the bling...great creative card!

Great card Patti! Clever, clever use of MPP supplies! TFS
