Hi all, thank you for joining me with todays blog post. Fall and Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year so I wanted to create this fun title page to start my month of October and nothing says October like Pumpkins, leaves and an owl witch. So grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte and lets begin!
Step 1: Cut out your images ( I used a lot of different sets from Joset’s collection see sets below) from your favorite cardstock and ink the edges with distress ink.
Next cut out your planner page and ink blend them with Black Soot, Villainous Potion and Shaded Lilac as per the picture above.
I sprinkled my page with water and dabbed it with a paper towel and set it aside to dry.
Once the page is dry I attached my tree and pop-dotted my owl. Next, add your spiders web, pumpkin and pop-dot your Jack-o’-lantern. Add your leaves, spider and your October title. Last step is to speckle with white heavy body paint.
Thank you for joining me today and have a crafty happy day!
Hello Samantha here – and as Halloween approaches I thought I’d inspire you with a (not so) scary pumpkin card!
Step 1: Use green card to cut out a card front – Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm
Step 2: Use a variety of orange card stock to die cut the pumpkins. Use kraft card to die cut the other pumpkin elements.
Step 3: Assemble the pumpkins and adhere these to the card front.
(Optional) Add machine stitched details.
Step 4: Using embossing ink stamp the sentiment – from Halloween clear stamp set then apply a generous amount of white embossing powder. Heat to set the embossing powder.
Adhere the sentiment to the card front.
Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to black cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Basic Black). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small faces from the Pumkins die.
Step 6: Adhere the faces to the pumpkins. Use green card stock to die cut a few leaves. Adhere these to the card front.
Step 7: Adhere the card front to an A6 card base. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.
I hope you like today’s Halloween inspired card. But let’s be honest these pumpkins are a little more on the cute side then the scary!

Now that the calendar says September I have thoughts of fall and all the things that are associated with it – like pumpkins. There is just something about a pumpkin that brings a smile to my face. Not only do I love pumpkins, my favorite color is, you guessed it, orange. Today I’m sharing a card that I created using the pumpkins from the new release by Joset Designs.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today. Don’t you love all the creative ways you can use your die sets to create fun scenes. Very soon we will be seeing lots of pumpkins so I decided to create a scene you might see out in the country. I have used White Soft Finish Cardstock to die cut all the pieces for this card, and used ink pads and a sponge dauber to color each piece. I added a black cat to the card in the picture below. Here is how the card was created.
