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

Distress Oxide Inks · Ellen Hutson · Simon Says Stamp

Birthday Card | Distress Oxide Ink


I hope everyone’s week is going well. Today I wanted to share a birthday card I made with you. I started off working with some of the new distress oxide inks and then used a mix of stamps from Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson. Here is what I came up with:

This was the first time I worked with blending the distress oxide inks and I was really happy with how smoothly the colors came together. I used Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, and Spiced Marmalade.

For the front of the card I used Simon Says Stamp – You matter stamp and die set along with one of the peonies from the Ellen Hutson – Mondo Peony set.

Then I finished it off with some Studio Katia Crystal Fusion Sequins – LOVE these!

For the inside, I used the Ellen Hutson – Spread the Sparkle stamp set to complete the birthday wishes.
