Butler Crop: Creating Til I Dropped blog series

Hi Stampers!

Number 13 in this blog series, and <cue up the spooky music here>, let's take another break from Christmas cards and serve up one more Kittie Kraft inspired Halloween card.  Now, this post is a bit of a spoiler (ssssshhhhhhh), because one of my beloved-est, best-est, dearest, most AMAZE-BALLS friends is a real "Halloweenie", and this is going to be the birthday card they get this year :)  But hey - NO telling if you've figured out who that lucky Halloween fan is gonna be ;)  I don't think they read this blog, so we just might pull this off.

For an extra coolness factor, didn't I stop over at Hand Stamped Sentiments today, and can you believe their color challenge highlights the very colors I used on this card??  What fun!!

The Tim Holtz Brick Wall embossing folder is even more awesome than I ever thought it would be paired with the Poppy Stamps Madison Window, Shutter, and Flower Box dies and the Martha Stewart Branch punch.

Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango, Garden Green and Basic Black take the stage here with a couple retired stamps from my Halloween stash.  See what you think:

(Inside, I stamped the Happy Birthday from Sassy Salutations.  The font just seemed to fit.)

Well, not long before the ghoulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night invade our neighborhoods!  I love sitting on my porch and passing out candy to the little goblins, how about you?

BOO!  How about a little Monster Mash?

Happy stampin'!

  1. Well, I had so much fun reading your blog post, and your card is SO cool! I love the spiders hanging from the window frames. And the Monster Mash was so fun! My 2 sons and I have it completely memorized, and they will really enjoy this video when I show it to them. Thanks for sharing it, and thanks for playing at HSS! Erika

  2. WOW! Amazing use of the color combo, this card is Halloweenie Awesome-ness!

  3. Oh what tons of Halloween fun you have created! I love the window shutters they are super cool. Thanks for playing along with our color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth
