How cute is that crow delivering the Happy Halloween message?  I had so much fun creating this card using the Pick of the Patch Bundle.  See all of the details below.

How'd She DO That? Happy Halloween Crow card

DOstamping Tips:

  • Start by stamping the leaves along the bottom of the white panel with Crumb Cake ink with the Pick Of The Patch stamp set.
  • To stamp the "extended branch": with Pecan Pie ink, stamp the full branch first, the turn the stamp 180 degrees and stamp so the ends meet.  Clever, right?
  • I recommend making the sign before stamping the crow, so you know where to position the crow image.  Use the Take Your Pick  tool and
  • Stampin' Pierce Mat to make holes in the sign.  Thread linen thread through the holes and tie off into a over hand knot.  Adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals and glue dot for knot.
  • For pumpkins: on white scrap, stamp two smaller pumpkins using Pumpkin Pie ink and Stamping Off technique.  Cut out with
  • Pick Of The Patch Builder Punch, also cut a Pumpkin kit large pumpkin and three Pecan Pie stems.
  • Arrange pumpkins before stamping "vine" images with Pecan Pie ink and Stamping Off technique.  Then adhere to card.
  • Substitute for the Speckled Dots: Use Stampin' Blends to color the white Classic Matte Dots

Before I end, I have a couple of NOTES for you:

  • All About Autumn Designer Series Paper: This was available at the time of my blog post yesterday.  But it ran out fast.  It's expected to be back in the week of October 23.  I've update the unorderable list (scroll down below my DOstamping Supplies)
  • Update on my blog emails:  The final problem for this has been narrowed down to issues between Gmail, my blogging platform and RSS feed service.  They have been working on it.  I received an email late last night to let them know if Gmail users are still have issues seeing photos.  If you could let me know, I would appreciate it.  Thank you for your help!


Thank you for choosing to shop with me!
