Lawnscaping Holiday Blog Hop - Haunted Halloween Card



Welcome to the first ever Lawnscaping Blog Hop!  So glad you’re here! You should have come to me by way of the very talented Ivy.  This month's theme is Holiday projects!! The hop runs from Friday, September 9th - Sunday, September 11th! Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.

Next head on to the extremely talented Ashley Newell's blog. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head on back to Lawnscaping to see the complete list of designers and prize information!


I made a card using the new Happy Haunting stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I paper pieced the house and made the ghosts from Clearly for Art modeling paper by Wendi Vecchi. You just stamp the paper with permanent ink, cut it out and heat with heat tool. When it becomes soft you have about 10 seconds to mold it before it hardens in place. I added some close ups of the ghosts so you can see the effect - it's kind of hard to see on the straight on card picture.

Here's my card: 


Ghost 1
Ghost 2


Materials
1. Card stock - Whipser White, Basic Black (Stampin Up)
2. Decorative Paper - KP Halloween Mat Pad (K & Company)
3. Stamp Set - Happy Haunting (Lawn Fawn)
4. Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento)
5. Modeling Paper - Clearly For Art White (Wendy Vecchi)
6. Vellum (Papertrey Ink)
7. Die - Circle (Sizzix)
8. Banner Die (Papertrey Ink)
9. Black sparkle brads (Michaels)

Instructions
1. Create card from black card stock - finished size is 5x5.
2. Cut smaller square panel and adhere to card.
3. Cut a circle in purple and green paper.
4. Draw a curved line on the green circle and cut out. 
5. Adhere the bottom part of the green circle to the purple circle and adhere to card.
6. Stamp the haunted house on several different patterned papers, cut out the different elements and adhere to the main haunted house image
7. Stamp moon and bat and cut out
8. Adhere paper-pieced house and moon to card
9. Stamp ghosts on white Clearly for Art paper and cut out
10. Heat ghosts with heat tool and when they become soft shape them the way you like - you have about 10 secs (if you don't like how it turns out - heat it up and shape it again)
11. Adhere ghosts to card with foam tape
12. Cut vellum banner from die and stamp sentiment
