Patchwork Pieces Halloween Card
Today, I share a “spooky” card using a variety of Stampin’ Up! products for my Halloween creation.
Here is a list of the ingredients:
Pumpkin Pie cardstock base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Basic Black cardstock layer measuring 5 1/4 x 4 and embossed with the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder
All paper crafters take note! World Card Making Day is Saturday, October 7, 2023 Celebrate with a virtual stamp-a-long sponsored by Stampin’ Up! Click here to see all of the details and to register.
The event features cards created with three of Stampin’ Up!’s bundles including Circle Sayings, Earthen Textures and a brand-new, sneak peek offering from an upcoming catalog: Heartfelt Hexagon (Item number 162889 for $37.75). You’ll love the sentiments and the ease of using a punch to create cute and quick cards.
Today, I share three cards created with this stamp set and punch bundle.
The sympathy card above uses a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Masterfully Made 12 x 12 paper (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″), a layer of vellum (5″ x 3 3/4″), and Berry Burst leaves punched with the Bough Punch and from the Soft Shimmer 12 x 12 Specialty Paper.
Below, I use the Glorious Gingham 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Berry Burst and Blueberry Bushel each measuring 2″ x 4 3/4″) to make a quick and easy birthday card. The embossing folder is part of the Basics 3D Embossing Folder Collection found online in Stampin’ Up!’s Online Exclusives.
And, next is a thinking of you card using Stampin’ Up!’s Countryside Inn 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper and another embossing folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folder Collection.
Don’t you just love the versatility of the stamp set and punch combo? During World Cark Making Day, you’ll gain even more ideas on how to use this bundle.

My card features Stampin’ Up!’s Autumn Leaves Bundle. Find it on pages 42- 44 of Stampin’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog.
