Inspired By Stamping September Sneak Peeks - A Spooky Halloween & Happy Fall

Welcome to Day One of the September release party at Inspired By Stamping!  I LOVE the stamps being released this month, and can't wait for you to see them.  Lots of holiday goodies involved, including Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas/Winter.

Today we are showcasing A Spooky Halloween & Happy Fall (links will work beginning September 10th when the sets are available for purchase).

First up, my autumn thank you card, which could of course be used at Thanksgiving time, too.


I stamped the argyle label from Happy Fall on a die cut using Fancy Labels 2.  I stamped little leaves from the set and hand-trimmed them, though if you have a Silhouette-type machine, there are FREE cut files for you to use.  Just click on any stamp set in the store and they are listed with the set.


I had such FUN making the Halloween decoration below for my home!  I used A Spooky Halloween and the brand-new Digital Patterned Papers from IBS, and some of my children's old wooden blocks.

A Spooky Halloween has neat-o silhouette images like those you see here, plus a few more.  I stamped them on die cuts, inked the edges, applied to the white-washed wooden blocks, then covered in glitter.


To spell out "Boo", I used Fancy Alphabet.  It's just perfect for the size of these blocks, which measure a little over an inch.


So that each block has visual interest from all sides, I stamped crows, spiders and black cats to place around them.  On the larger block, the skeleton fit just right on the front; then I used the chevron-striped digital paper on the top, sides and back.






Our design team would like to share their creations with you, too:

Oh WOW!!! The fall card is gorgeous, but those blocks are drop dead FABULOUS!! Love the white color scheme with the inked edges of the paper panels, and the glitter "frosting" is so perfect. And I have tons of childrens' blocks and am now inspired to use them. I always learn something new when I visit your blog and today is no exception. Bravo!

Love those glittery blocks - I'm a big fan of ghouly silhouettes for Halloween.

Your photo for your header? It's a heart hydrangea - doesn't get any better than that.
