Pick of the Patch Easel Card

Have you had a chance to page through Stampin’ Up!’s brand-new September-December 2023 Mini Catalog? (If not, click this link to view a PDF.) The catalog features great paper crafting product geared toward fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, winter, holiday, Christmas, new year’s, and more.

Today, I share a fun fold easel card using the Pick of the Patch Bundle (buy the stamp set and the punch as a bundle and save 10 percent). Find this bundle on page 51 of the holiday mini catalog. I love this bundle because it offers sentiments perfect for other uses. See this post for a free tutorial offering step-by-step directions for creating a fall card.

Dots & Spots for Halloween

Stampin' Up! Dots & Spots

I have this crazy goal: I want to actually use some of the great crafting goodies I buy! Seriously! When Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog came out at the beginning of May, I bought the Dots & Spots Die. (That’s the die that makes the dotted background; the one that almost looks like cheese.) It looks cool, I thought. I should be able to do something fun with that. But, it sat there and sat there. 

This last weekend, I made my way into the craft room and played with paper and that die specifically. Click here to see a fun, summer-themed card made with this die. 

And then I thought: why not Halloween? I had just received the Bewitching stamp set and coordinating Witch Hat Builders Punch. Perhaps I could use all of these elements together.

Thus, the card above came to life.

Dots & Spots Die for Halloween

Here’s a quick recap of how this card came together:

  • Pumpkin Pie card base
  • Basic Black layer measuring 5 1/4 x 4 run through the Dots & Spots Die (attached to card front with just a little of glue strategically placed between the dots).
  • Layering Circles dies for the scallop circle
  • Stylish Shapes Dies for the black circle
  • Stamp dotted witch’s hat with black ink on white card stock, colored with Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends
  • Pumpkin Pie banner with Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Finished with a bow created with black baker’s twine
