Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller with you today for a fun and easy Haunted “Mushroom” House. This is a large card, 6″ X 7″, so that is going to require a custom envelope that you will need to create. This is lots of fun so let’s get started.
Begin by cutting out the house using the Mushroom House Folding Card. Distress Oxide Inks was used here to color the mushroom stem and the lower part of the roof. I used Black Soot for the top part but it does look like green here. It actually looks green on the finished card but I’m ok with that.
Use the same die set to cut the doors and windows. The Halloween Scenery die set was used for the tree & graveyard. One of he Stitched Circles was used for the moon and then edged with orange.
The top part of the roof was cut from a scrap in my stash. Once all pieces were cut and colored, assembly began. The ghost on the top came from one of my older Elizabeth Craft Designs set. The ghosts are cut from vellum so they would look more spooky.
The last piece added was the moon.
Now I must confess that once I got everything assembled the way I wanted it, I was not happy with the way it looked from the inside. To solve that problem – the card was closed – glued shut and mounted on a piece of purple paper. Sometimes in card making we have to take a detour.
Once it looked acceptable – it was added to a black background with a thin boarder all around. At this point – one more ghost was added.
Since this is such a large card a separate back panel was added.
On the inside the largest Indented Rectangle die was used and the sentiment was stamped.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a DIY Background using Silk Microfine Glitter and the new Spider Web die set from Joset Designs. Below you will find the steps to create your own background card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim Black Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Diecut Fitted Indented Rectangles using the trimmed cardstock.
Step 3 – Diecut Spider Web using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere Pixie Spray to the backside to create a stencil. Adhere the stencil on top of the diecut created from Step 2.
Step 4 – Create your own Glitter Paste by mixing Silk Microfine Glitter Copper Rose and Texture Paste Transparent Gloss. Apply the mix onto the Cardstock with the stencil. Once completely covered remove the stencil and let dry.
Step 5 – Adhere the Background created from Step 4 to the card front using Foam Tape.
Step 6 – Diecut Spider Web (spiders x 3) and adhere to card front using Foam Squares. I added Shimmer using a Shimmer Pen for added sparkle.
Step 7 – Stamp Spooky sentiment onto Black Soft Finish Cardstock using Versamark. Sprinkle Gold Embossing powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool.
Step 8 – Diecut Labels 1 using the sentiment created from Step 7. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
This Glitter Paste technique can be used for any occasion by simply changing the color of the Glitter. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

I love everything “pumpkin” this time of year. Yes, I fall for the pumpkin spice creamer in my coffee, pumpkin spice oatmeal, and pumpkin spice candies. I love it all! Hello, this is Birgit here with you today sharing another love of pumpkins, these sweet dies from Joset Designs.
It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team today. Being that Halloween is now only four weeks away, I decided to play with the new Krista Schneider Halloween Clear Stamp set. These stamps are perfect for creating fun scenes.
This is Anita here! Halloween cards are so much fun to make, especially using the newly released stamps and dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. There are so many fun images to select from, including bats, pumpkins, a witch, candy corn, spooky trees, a haunted house, and more.
For my tutorial today I created a tri-fold card that provides a lot of space for creating detailed scenes.
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.
