Simon Says........Halloween/Spooky

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


Our theme this week is "Halloween/Spooky", and we'll be playing with Echo Park products.  I chose a stencil and made 2 cards with it.

supplies: purple, black and Green Apple card stock, Echo Park Creepy Bats stencil, black soot distress ink, Simon Trick or Treat cat and sentiment, Stitched Rectangle die, adhesive foam strips

I stencilled the bats onto green card, cut a stitched rectangle, framed it with black and placed that panel on a purple card.  The bat is fussy-cut from the excess stencilled panel, and it and the cat are popped above the card.

Here's one more.

supplies: Simon's black, slate, sunshine, and orange peel card stock, Echo Park Creepy Bats stencil, black soot distress ink, some stamped bats from above Trick or Treat set, Impression Obsession Birch Tree dies, Hero Arts Upper Case Alphabet dies, Spellbinders circle die

I stencilled on the slate card, then added a moon, using just one of the stencil bats for the large bat and stamped some smaller ones across the moon, too.  

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate 


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

You have created such wonderful design using the stencil! Love how you showcased two different ways of using it. You know I really love your second card but the first one also has pretty color palette and fun scene!
Have a great day!

Super cute cards, Lin! I love the use of traditional "Halloween colors" in the first card with green and purple and how you die cut the birch trees in black in the second to keep with the spooky/eerie vibe!

Two super fun cards! I love the backgrounds and how you made one bat pop up! True example of how you can achieve with just one stencil. xx Ankita
