I don’t send a lot of Hallowe’en cards, so I don’t always choose to buy a specific Stampin’ Up! Hallowe’en set (*gasp* yes, it’s true, I do not own every single stamp from the Stampin’ Up1 catalogue…). There are definitely ways around that, though! My son is older now, so there’s not a lot of call for class treats or scrapbook pages, but it’s still fun to mark the day and have something on hand just in case the occasion arises. My Paper Pumpkin subscription often fills in the gaps for me – there’s usually something fall or Hallowe’en themed around this time of year that I can use for special trick or treaters or for a quick project. For this card, I used a sentiment from the Holiday Catalogue host only set, Six Sayings. I love this particular set (and was thrilled to win it when I was at Stampin’ Up!’s North American convention earlier this year). It has a stamp for Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and Valentine’s Day, though they could be used in other situations in some cases. The paper along the edge of the card is from the Happy Haunting┬áDesigner Series Paper, which has some definitely spooky themed designs, but also has designs that can be used in other situations (the scenic card from the other day for example). I used a portion of one of the Spider Web Doilies┬áto finish the front of the card. I used the remainder of the doily inside the card as well. These doilies are two sided, with a black side and a white side, so I definitely think you can get away with using them on non-Hallowe’en projects. We made this card in Stamper’s Club this month, so everyone has at least one card for a special trick or treater!
