Goin’ a Bit Batty-PPA60

I’m always goin’ batty during the Halloween season!


Are you ready for another Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge? I am and I really enjoy making this Halloween one!  This is my card for the PPA60 – Halloween Inspiration Challenge this week.

This card measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored and folded @ 4-1/4″).  It has a top fold and I rounded all the corners to repeat the rounded scallop look throughout the card.  The smooth card stock colors are  from my Stampin’ Up! color stash and are as follows:  Basic Gray (card base), Old Olive (mat) and Basic Black (flower base).  The fun edge treatment is from a scrap of retired Designer Series Paper titled Cast-A-Spell.

I was looking for a reason to use my Stampin’ Up! Designer Jewels-Black Flourish and this challenge was the perfect opportunity.  I just LOVE these gems!  I adhered these gorgeous glitzy gems around the pretty Waffle Paper flower with a Gimmer Brad -Silver center from the “basics” set.

The stamped images are made with Classic Ink in Basic Black using the Wicked Cool stamp set.  The Designer Series Paper is Nite Owl (#123012) and is available in the current Holiday Mini Catalog (Sept. 1, 2010-January 3, 2011).

I am in the process of editing a video tutorial on how I made this flower with the new Waffle Paper.  I hope you will check back  to see how I designed this dimensional flower. Don’t let it intimidate you because it is quite simple to do….trust me 🙂
