Guest Designer for October

My card background is created by using my aqua painter, watercolor paper (5" X 3 3/4") and the ink colors, Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant and Crisp Cantaloupe.  After it dried, I was ready to put my card together.  

The card base is Basic Black (5 1/2" X 4 1/4") and the next layer is Crisp Cantaloupe (5 1/4" X 4").  I stamped the trees across the watercolored piece in Momento  Black ink using the stamp set, "Lovely As A Tree."  I cut a circle on a piece of scrap paper to make the mask for the moon and sponged the moon in Crisp Cantaloupe in the corner.  I stamped the bats in black ink.  Then I used Versa Mark ink on Basic Black paper to stamp the 3 houses (Holiday Home Stamp Set) .  I heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  I used the Holiday Home framelits to cut them out.  I also stamped the ghost and pumpkins on Whisper White and fussy cut them.  I adhered the houses using dimensionals.  I adhered the ghost and pumpkins with Snail Adhesive.  

I sure hope you enjoyed my card.  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you.  

If you have any questions on my card please contact me at: Claire.

Happy Stampin'


  1. So Halloweenishly festive! I have this stamp set and I don't know why but it intimidates me. You made it look so easy with them heat embossed.

  2. Thank you very much, Sandy! I haven't used it much either and really like it. I appreciate your comments! XX

  3. Great card Claire - I love how you took your inspiration from the photo this week too. Those houses look really spooky against that watercoloured background - perfect for Halloween!

    1. Thank you very much, Joanne! We had similar thoughts again this week! I love it! XX
