Creepy and Kooky, Mysterious and Spooky

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have a Creepy & Kooky, Mysterious & Spooky card to share with you all today. 

I have had the Spooky Family stamp set from Kindred Stamps sitting on my desk for a while. My husband loves the tv show that the characters in this stamp set represent, that I had to add it to my stash. It has taken me a while, but I have finally pulled it out and created a card using it.

A month or two ago I also purchased Lawn Fawn's Build A House Stamp die set. Besides the main die set I also purchased the two add-on die sets .... Christmas add-on and Halloween add-on. I have already used the Christmas add-on, and with Halloween only a few days away I wanted to play with the Halloween version.

While my card could be a Halloween card, I opted to turn it into a birthday card.

For my card today, I created a U Fold or Bridge Card. To create the U Fold card I started with a piece of white cardstock that measures 8 inches x 5 inches. I then scored along the 8 inch side at 1 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 inches on each side. 

I then used Distress Oxide inks in Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot to create my sky background.

For the grass areas, I used MFT Stamps Tucked-in Turf - Horizontal Die-namics. This die was actually a tiny bit small for the width of the card, so I did some partial die cutting to make the right hand side a fraction longer and then trimmed off the excess when I adhered it to the front of the card. The grass has been colored using Distress Oxide inks in Peeled Paint, Forest Moss & Black Soot.

I used a circle die to cut out a circle  from white cardstock which I adhered to the back of the card.

I added the house to the centre of the back panel.

I added the characters, from the Spooky Family stamp set, to the grass area on the front portion of the card.

I added a number of bats randomly over the card which are also from the Halloween Add-on die set.

The "Creepy", "Kooky", "Mysterious" and "Spooky" sentiments are also from the stamp set. I adhered them to the card in the order they appear in the lyrics of the song from the show. I also added the "&" symbol before both sets of sentiments, which is from Honey Bee Stamps Mermaid Song stamp set.

For the back panel I used MFT Stamps Tucked-in Turf - Vertical Die-namics. I added two of the characters to the grass area.

For the sentiments I used "Have A" & "Spooktacular" from Lawn Fawn's Tiny Halloween Stamp set and the "Birthday" from Lawn Fawn's Reveal Wheel Sentiments stamp set.

I then added a couple of bats which are also from the Tiny Halloween stamp set.
