Sweet Hauntings Window Card: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! This week it's all about Sweet Hauntings - what a GREAT stamp set for Halloween!
I'm a lover of Halloween, and I know lots of people aren't, but I was born on Halloween so I kind of have to love it, and as a kid I had THE BEST birthday parties. We've even had a few Halloween parties in our home, but not in a few years. Maybe this card will inspire me to have another party, these sure would make cute invites! 
I have a few tips for you if you'd like to recreate this card.
- Stamp bottles on Vellum Cardstock with StazOn Ink. Cut out, and then sponge the edges with Early Espresso Ink. 
- Make your window more realistic by placing a piece of Window Sheet behind the black cardstock die cut. To make your window look a little dusty and dirty, sponge with Early Espresso Ink. 

It's all about the grunge on this card, and I did a lot of sponging! Every piece is sponged with a little (or a lot) of Early Espresso Ink to up the spook factor! 
Thank you so much for visiting me today! Don't forget to head over to Barbara's blog to see what she's created this week!
If you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I'd love to be yours! You can find all the products I've used in my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop, and also by clicking any of the links below. Thank you for choosing to shop with me! 

Happy Stampin'

  8. I love this card! It looks like an old basement window in a haunted house! Which wouldn't be much of a compliment except in the case of a Halloween card! Simply awesome!
