Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central – HALL-O-WEEEEEEN and a surprise! ;o)




HELLO  Bloggers! 


Thanks for stopping by today to see my latest Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central Design Team post!  The current theme is “Halloween”. 

I have a bunch of Halloween House Mouse  stamps that I’ve never used and a member of my group, The Frugal Scrapper, made a video on how to make this “Never Ending Card”…so now is the time to try out a new card fold and use these un-inked stamps!!!  And even with all of the stamps I used on this project, I still have a few more that I have yet to use.  ;o)

Because there are a lot of products used in this project, I have decided to break down the photos by section to tell you what supplies I’ve used. 


Here is a shot of the front of my card.  Overall finished measurement is 8x8…it’s BIG!!



The two images above are close-ups of the stamps on the front of my card.  For these two, I used:



This is the next layer of my card. 




This is section three of my card. 




  • Image – Monica Flutter-by
  • Mouse Prints – also by Stampabilities
  • Spellbinders – Deckled Edge Classic Ovals
  • Copics - YR04, YR07, YR00, G20, C7, C5, BV00, RV00, C3
  • Spider Web – Martha Stewart Spider Web Punch
  • Glimmer Mist – sprayed on the spider web
  • Footprints – Stampabilities

I’m not sure why I didn’t ink the edges of the piece with footprints.  I didn’t notice it until right this moment as I sit here typing up the details of my post.  ha! 



This is the last section of my card. 




  • Image - Little Pumpkin
  • Copics - YR04, YR07, YR00, E000, E00, RV00, E29, E25, E21, C3, E13, E17
  • Spellbinders – Beaded Ovals
  • Sentiment – Stampabilities
  • Spellbinders – Deckled Rectangles
  • Footprints – Stampabilities (I just stamped them randomly all over.

On the stamped images and sentiments in this card, I used the dies to cut, emboss, add the black ink to the “beaded” sections with a little finger dauber and Tim Holtz Black Soot ink.  I removed the die and added more ink around the edges with the same Black Soot ink and a bristle brush.

This card isn’t hard, but it does take patience to get all the folds correct.  Once you get that figured out, the rest kind of falls into place! 

THANK YOU for visiting my blog today!  I hope you’ll attempt to make one of these cards.  Please make sure you link up your Halloween project on our Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central blog for a chance to win some cool products from Cindy & Kevin at Stamping Scrapping!

Love the way your card came out...can't believe you had all those little guys that needed inked up. I have one of these cards almost finished (it's been that way for about a month-LOL)but then I caught pneumonia. Yours came out awesome. To me the hardest part was figuring out which part would show up on each turn. So for every turn I numbered each little corner on my test sample one in helped me out immensely that way!

I've looked at those ink daubers and never purchased one because I wasn't quite sure how I would use it. Does it work like the little finger sponges I get from Stampin Up but already has the ink on it?

Angie said...

Wow! This card is awesome!!! Love it! I love these stamps, I have this clear set of these HM stamps too, so cute!! I'll have to try this card! Thanks for the chance to win your blog candy, I'm off to post it on my blog! Oh, I'm already a follower!

I totally love that card...It must've taken you forever to do that. I'm not sure that I would have the patience to do all that you did. I did everything I was suppose to do. You can find my post at
