Halloween Haunted House Easel Card

Hello! Today I am sharing a  Halloween Haunted House Easel Card that I created using dies and how I store my dies by theme.

I knew I wanted to create a Halloween card so I grabbed my Deflecto Stackable Cube with all of my Halloween and Autumn dies and then picked out the Poppystamp dies I wanted to use.


I have several of these Deflecto Stackable Cubes and have each one organized by theme. So I have one for Christmas and Winter, another for flowers only, another for Love and so on. They are also great to use to organize your clear stamp sets. Which is on my list of things I need to do.

I first started with the Poppystamps Winter House Pop Up Easel Die Set. Even though this die set was meant for Christmas it is also great for Halloween too. I cut the base out with orange cardstock and then cut the house out in yellow and brown. I matted the brown with the yellow to give the windows and door a yellow glow and adhered these layers togehter using my Xyron Mega Runner. Then cut the windows and roof out in black cardstock. For the drips, I used the purple cardstock from the Memory Box Frosted Glitter Paper Pad.


Once I got all of the little pieces die cut out, I ran them all through my Xyron X Create A Sticker. This is a great way to adhere small die cut pieces.


Then I started adhering all of the little die pieces.

I tucked in some ghosts from the Poppystamps Squeaker Ghosts Dies in the windows.

I used the Poppystamps Boo Outline to add as a ledge to prop the easel card too.

I really love the J. Sparrow stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps. I colored him in with Copic Markers and then fussy cut him out. I stamped the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Treasure Chest on the card front and colored it in with Copics.

I also die cut out a circle in brown cardstock and used a piece of patterned paper that sort of looked like water for the center. Added some sequins around the circle to make it look like a porthole. Stamped and fussy cut out the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Pirate Ship to add into the middle of the porthole.
Then stamped the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps It Be Yer Birthday with VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder on red cardstock and cut it into a flag shape.

A Masculine Pirate Birthday Card

 Did you know that Sept. 19th is Talk Like A Pirate Day? To celebrate I thought I would make a masculine pirate birthday card.


Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I first took a piece of kraft cardstock and burned all the edges of it. You have to be careful when doing this to not burn more than you want, so I would just do one edge at a time. Blow it out and then burn a little bit more until all edges were burnt.
I then crinkled up the cardstock piece into a ball and then flattened it back out again and then sprayed it with some Walnut Spray and then adhered it to the front of my card base using my Xyron Mega Runner.

For the stamps, I used Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps J. Sparrow, Pirate's Rum Bottle, and Treasure Map and stamped them all with Memento Ink Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copic Markers.
The map and rum bottle I used my Xyron Mega Runner and adhered them down. For the pirate, I used some foam squares behind him.

For the sentiment, I used Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Make A Rum Cake Stamp. I stamped it on white cardstock and I free hand cut it out to give it a jagged edge. Then I inked up the edges and blended some of the ink to the front to distress it up some and give it a dirty look. Then I used foam squares to pop it up.

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps also wants to help everyone celebrate Talk Like A Pirate by offering
25% OFF all of their Pirate Stamps from Sept. Friday 18th to 20th.
The J. Sparrow, Treasure Map, and Make A Rum Cake stamps that I used on my card are all new releases plus there are even more newly released pirates stamps. All great for the big and little pirate's in your life! The discount will automatically be applied once the stamps have been added to your cart and at checkout.
