13 Days of Halloween – Day 13 | Halloween Embellishment Box

Greetings from stormy Baltimore…it’s been raining here all day. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to stay in and do some more crafting this weekend 😉

This will be my final Halloween video for the season…I wanted to wait to be sure it was received before posting so as not to ruin the surprise and now that I’m sure it’s arrived I can share it with you.

Here is how I put the goodie box together:

Here are some close-ups:

If you’d like to see how I made all those goodies, check out day 6 & 7 of the series. Thanks so much for stopping by today (and your patience as I’ve run late with some of these videos).  Now on to a few Thanksgiving cards and the Christmas Series! xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween – Day 12 | Trick or Treat!

Hey There,

This is my last card for the Halloween season this year. I will have one more video to finish up the 13th day but I need to wait until after I’m sure the recipient has it as I don’t want to ruin the surprise. For this card, I combined two MFT stamp sets to create my trick or treaters. That’s one thing I really love about MFT – their stamps are for the most part sized the same and very easy to mix together (Lawn Fawn does this too).

Here is how I put it together:

Here are your close-ups:


This is another sweet simple card, and probably my second favorite of the bunch this year.


I kept the inside really clean as well.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Halloween Series this year – I’ve really enjoyed making everything for you! xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween – Day 11 | Escaping Ghosts!

Hello there,

Happy Halloween! Today is going be another double video day as I’m now totally out of time. First I’ve got this jar of escaping ghosts for you. I used the Lawn Fawn How you Bean stamp set for the jar elements, the candy corn add-on for the sentiment and spooktacular for those cute little ghosts. I thought it’d be fun to have them escaping out of that loose jar lid.

Here is how I put it together:

And here are your close-ups:


I used Intense Black ink to stamp out those ghosts – remember if you’re going to stamp on vellum like I did, you need to heat set it so it doesn’t smear. Alternatively, you could also just heat emboss them.


Since the ghosts on the outside are so busy, I kept the inside simple with just a matching stripe of the background paper.


How many ghosts do you think you could fit in a jar?

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card. xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween – Day 10 | Wizard Friends

Hello There!

Today I’m sharing a card I made using Kindred Stamps Wizzard Friend stamp set. I decided to create a misty magical forest to place Hermione, Ron and Harry in and added a cauldron from the Bear Wear 2 stamp set for them to brew up a potion. Here is what I came up with:

Here are some close-ups of the finished card:


I feel like this card still needs a little something but I can’t figure out what. Any suggestions? I was thinking of adding brown on the tree trunks but didn’t want to mess up the foggy forest look though.


If you’re a Harry Potter fan you should check out this stamp set – it has some great sentiments for all different types of cards and there are coordinating stamp sets with other characters too.

As always, thanks for stopping by to check out my work! xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween – Day 9 | Clean and Simple Bear Wear Halloween Cards

Hello There,

Hope everyone’s week has started off well. I’m very excited to share these cards with you today, I think they are my favorite of the cards this year so far. I love the look of a minimal white card but in all honesty, they take me a lot longer to come up with. Well worth the effort I think though. Here is a look at how I put them together:

And here are your close-ups1

This little guy is so cute – he is so much fun to accessorize and there are loads of accessories in the Bear Wear stamp sets.

That strip of glitter adds just that little extra the card was needing.


The sentiments in the Witch Way stamp set are so perfect – I use them multiple times every Halloween.

Isn’t that mask just adorable? This little guy is ready to collect lots of candy.

I think the negative space is always the most difficult part of these type of cards and a little splatter can always help if it’s feeling too white.


A strip of colored cardstock can do the same thing for the inside.

I love how simple and graphic these are – they’d make really great party invitations!

As always, thanks for stopping by today. xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween – Days 6 & 7 | Halloween Embellishments

Hello There,

Today I’ve got some embellishments to share with you. I spent all day last Saturday working on these and had so much fun. I sat down at my table and just went to work and before I knew it…it was dark outside! Since I made so many the video was VERY long so I decided to split it into two and since I’m running out of days to complete my 13 days of Halloween I’m posting both at the same time. Here are the 2 videos of what I created:

And here are still shots of the finished goodies:
