Bat Card Using Banner Year and Hand-Penned Memories & More

Stampin' Up!'s Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack wasn't one I thought to use for Halloween crafting but this week I've shared projects using a variety of Memories & More card packs and I just had to make this one for an Instagram Reel using the It's Frickin' Bats audio. This card pack has a few Halloween colours: Pale Papaya, Garden Green and Mint Macaron. This card pack has some flowery designs but I covered up most of the design with a Garden Green die-cut. 
The 3 stamped bats from the Banner Year stamp set. They are stamped using Basic Gray and Pale Papaya inks. This stamp set contains images that you can use for Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day with a variety of font types.
There is something wrong with this card! Can you see it? When I was taking pictures of this card, something looked wrong but I couldn't figure out why. Do you see the mistake I made when assembling the card? Now that I see it, I can't not see it! If you make a mistake on a card do you pull it apart then reassemble? Or do you leave it alone and hope no one else notices? In paper crafting making mistakes is part of learning how to be more creative. I'm leaving this card and it's upside down pattern alone and hope that no one else notices.

What A Year Thanks Card

I overlooked Stampin' Up!'s What A Year Memories & More card pack in the Annual Catalogue, mostly because it had pink in it! Do you ever decide something isn't for you based solely on the colour? There is a demonstrator Facebook page that I belong to where another demo shared a card that piqued my interested in the What A Year card pack and it was added to my next order (along with the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack). 
It's hard to include all the cards in one photo as there are 52 cards in 3"x4" and 4"x6" sizes and 4 sticker sheets but I tried to show as many as I could in the above photo. This Memories & More Card Pack stickers are perfect for a scrapbook where your layouts are weekly layouts. There are some stickers that say "week 1" then for week thirty-two there will be a 32 sticker. If you have bought Memory & More card packs before, like I have, you will be surprised that there isn't duplicates of each card! That means there are double the designs for crafting. What do you think of this card and the What A Year Memories & More Card Pack?

Cute Halloween Fancy Fold Card

At this month's team meeting my friend Tanya showed us how to make this fun fancy fold card. Her card used the Cute Halloween designer series paper as I have with this card, but she used the skull and bat designs. The ghost and house from one of the DSP pack and the sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set. Do you think "Happy Haunting" works with the ghosts? 
Side view of this cute card. On the black piece you could add more designer series paper or even some Basic White cardstock for your hand written message. If you do write a message on the Basic White piece you may wish to made sure it is covered by the Happy Haunting black strip. Although this card does not lay flat so it may not matter too much.
Highland Heather is one of the coordinating colours in the Cute Halloween DSP pack and one of my favourite colours. Do you spy the 4 designs used on this card? With 16 designs in this 6" x 6" pack you can pick your favourites to cover each panel. Have you joined my email list? Sunday night's email will include the dimensions and instructions to create this card. Subscribe here and you will also receive a free tutorial: http://subscribe.fromwhereistamp.ca

Pretty Cards & Paper - October

Stampin' Up!'s Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper can be found in the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue and it's a fun pack of paper to use for your wintery crafting. You could use the coordinating Whimsical Trees stamp set with this DSP but I've decided to pair the Christmas to Remember stamp set for my card today.
Although this paper has a lot of pink in it, there are some great designs to create non-traditional Christmas cards or other holiday projects. The specialty part of the paper is the silver foil added to some of the designs like on the snowflakes on the piece I used to cover the card base of this card.
What do you think about using pink for your holiday crafts? Yay or nay?

So wonderful of you to stop on by to see my project. Next up you can visit these other blogs to see what they are sharing with us today:
