Happy Haunting Free Card Tutorial

Today, I’m sharing a Happy Haunting Free Card Tutorial.

Happy Haunting Free Card Tutorial

I love to send greeting cards for all occasions! With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, I’m looking toward Halloween.

The catalog offers a host of fun products. I chose the Banner Year stamp set on page 65. It includes sentiments and images for all of the upcoming holidays. Purchase it as a bundle with the Banners Pick a Punch and save 10 percent. I also used the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper as a feature point.

  • Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper – 3 ½” x 5 ½” and 4 ¼” x 1”

  • 3/8” Glittered Organdy Ribbon – one piece 5” and one piece 3”



  • Fold the Cajun Craze card stock in half.
  • Using adhesive of choice, adhere the 3 ½” x 5 ½” inch piece of Magic in This Night DSP to the Cajun Craze base.
  • Attach the 4 ¼” x 1” piece of DSP to the 4 ¼” x 1 ¼” Basic Black piece.
  • Place a Glue Dot on each end of the 5” inch piece of Glittered Organdy Ribbon. Stretch the ribbon across the front of the DSP/black piece, sticking the Glue Dots to the back of it.
  • With adhesive, adhere this entire piece to the card front, about halfway down.
  • Create a “faux” box with the 3” Glittered Organdy Ribbon. (Slip the piece underneath the ribbon already attached to the card stock. Tie a knot.)
  • Die cut the white scrap with a circle from the Stitched Shapes and the Cajun Craze with a scallop circle.
  • Stamp the spider web image with Cajun Craze ink onto the white circle three times, stamping off once for each web. Use Memento Black ink to stamp the “Happy Haunting” sentiment in the middle of the white circle and on top of the webs.
  • Place the white circle on top of the Cajun Craze scallop with Glue Dots. With Dimensionals, pop this circle up on top of the ribbon on the left-hand side of the card.
  • Stamp the word “Boo” in Black Memento on the 5 ¼” x 4” Whisper White. Attach to the inside of the card.

Team Card Swap

To showcase the products, my team, Kim’s Paper Krafters, participated in a recent card swap. What’s a card swap? Each participant commits to designing and making a card using Stampin’ Up! products. We create enough cards so every swapper gets one. We then exchange our creations. This is a great way to get a variety of samples to use for our own inspiration or to share great ideas with customers.

My team members amaze me with their creativity! It’s so fun to see the stamp sets people choose and the way in which they combine a range of elements. I hope you enjoy seeing this live view of our team’s creations. Please contact me if you need additional details about any of the cards you see! (See the details on my swap card here.)

Stampin’ Friends: Perfectly Plaid

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Perfectly Plaid stamp set for a handmade greeting card and easy gift card holder.

Thanks for joining us on our monthly blog hop. The theme this month is “anything goes.” That fits perfectly with my theme this month. Be sure to visit all of the hops on the blog and leave comments.

Each Thursday this month, I’m featuring a Christmas or holiday themed card using products found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

For this card, I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch. The set and punch carried over from last year’s Holiday Catalog. Now, we can get a jump start on our holiday greeting card making with this awesome and popular duo.

In addition to the the stamp set and punch, here are some of the Stampin’ Up! products used to create this card:

  • 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Just Jade)
  • Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
  • Real Red card stock and Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Just Jade Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Red Rhinestones

This is a clean and simple and easy-to-create card. See the end of the post to purchase the products used to create this card.

Perfectly Plaid Gift Coordinating Card Holder

Gift card holders are a popular item for the holidays. I created a coordinating holder using the same products as the card above. To create the holder base, start with a piece of card stock measuring 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Score at 2 1/2″ and 6 1/2″. Fold the bottom piece up, adhering just the sides of the card stock with Tear and Tape to make a pocket for the gift card. I used small Velcro dots to the flap down. Decorate any way you wish.
