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
