It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

By | September 18, 2016


Wonderful Halloween Season

Is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year Halloween? Christmas? Back to School? I’m sure it depends on who’s asking who (or is it whom?).

No doubt in my mind, as soon as Back to School arrives, I’m looking forward to Halloween. It’s Back to Peep season, right?

Christmas is wonderful, but if you’re a sugar fiend like me, you can’t beat Halloween. Think of all the treats. And the Peeps!

So the 6-piece stamp set in the “I Want It All” Holiday Catalog named Wonderful Year is probably referring to Christmas. The smaller sentiments mention Christmas and New Years.

But I paired it with another of my Holiday Catalog favs, Ghoulish Grunge, and inked it up for a quick Halloween card.


Just Stamp Tips

Ghoulish Grunge, just five pieces, packs a huge punch. The gauze, the web, the deteriorating brick wall, the runny blood and the worn net — all are fab backgrounders.

Did you catch the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper on the last-but-not-least page 55 of the catalog? (Sigh) Stampin’ Up! pushes all my buttons.

Grab the Banner Triple Punch to create the banner with a wee 1 1/2 x 3″ slice of Pumpkin Pie Glimmer. Split it after punching for easy handling.

Delicate White Doilies become creepy Black Doilies with a few runs of Basic Black ink and the Sponge Brayer.

Dip a Stamping Sponge onto the Basic Gray ink pad and sponge the edges of the 2 1/2 x 4″ Very Vanilla cardstock to create the vintage look.
