On a Spooky Night…(CCMC169)


It’s time for another AWESOME challenge from Create with Connie and Mary! I just love being a part of their design team, they keep me so creatively charged!


I knew that I wanted to make a Halloween card with these colours and I knew I wanted to do a landscape-type card too so what better than to play with this challenge?


I started with a Basic Black card base and then layered it with another piece of the same cardstock. Across the centre, I added a strip of Sahara Sand which is stamped with the candelabra from Wicked Cool and then it’s backed with a piece of Pool Party punched with the Pinking Herts border punch. At the right, I’ve added a Pool Party punched oval and a silver glimmer brad.


A big Basic Black satin ribbon is affixed to the side with a Basic Black button.



I used MANY post-it notes and sponged my landscape using the challenge colours. I stamped the bats from Wicked Cool to look like they are emerging from behind the hill and I tried to make little gravestones using my Word Window punch. I sponged them and stamped them with the spider web from, you guessed it, Wicked Cool.


Lastly, I added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I’m really happy with how this turned out! Now, I usually don’t send Halloween cards but I just love to make them so I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this!

  3. Fabulous scene – amazing card….and….get ready for it……the Carrie Component of the day is the Pool Party edged with the Pinking Hearts Border because it makes the background look like a black picket fence!

  4. Carrie, this is so stunning! I love the little scene you’ve created; your little tombstones are awesome. I also like the candelabras on the back panel – and just noticed the embellishments at the other end of that strip. Everything is pulled together so perfectly.
