I just love this Halloween Stamp Set called Trick or Tweet (wood blocks 147725/ clear 147722). This set is on page 50 of the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.

Just a Reminder:

On this Tuesday evening  from 7-9pm it’s time for “Tuesday Technique Trio”. My focus that evening will be using “Simple Shapes and Punches” for the six cards we will make. I include envelopes so you can decorate them too if you would like. These are fast and easy cards to make and everything is prepped ahead so I am pretty sure we can complete all six during the 7-9PM time period. I will have the new catalog for all who attend and you can place your order with me right away and I will get it in on Wednesday when the catalog goes live! then it usually take 7-10 days to get the order.

so back to my card! I have now used all four of the cute animals in tRick or Tweet (wood blocks 147725/ clear 147722) set. I am just in love with this set! I am not a big Halloween fan but this set is cute enough to send to my grandchildren! The kids really don’t like the scary ones.

My color combination is again the usual Halloween colors. I chose Basic Black (121045), Calypso Coral (ink 147101/ card stock (122925), and Whisper White (100730).

I could not wait to use the Trick or Tweet (wood 147725/ clear 147722) Stamp set again! The stamps are so cute!  I decided to use squares for the central motif frame again. I used my Big Shot (143263) and my Stitched Shaped Framelits (145372) to cut a 2 1/8″ square of Whisper White (100730) on which to stamp the sweet little mummy kitty and pumpkin basket. This time I stamped the pumpkin basket right on the center square instead of cutting out a separate circle on which to stamp the pumpkin.

I again used my Stampin’ Blends to color the image. This time I used Light Calypso Coral (144042) to color the kitty, Light Smoky Slate (145054)  to color the mummy bandages, Light Petal Pink (146866) for the nose and inside the ears, and Light Daffodil Delight (144586) for the eyes, nose and mouth of the Jack O’ Lantern.

I cut one 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White (100730) card stock for the first layer and my Basic Black (121045) card base is 4  1/4″ X 11″. My card base is scored at 5 1/2″ and folded in half.  I cut two 2 5/8″ squares using my Stitched Shape Framelits (145372) and my Big Shot (143263). One square of which is Calypso Coral  (122925) and one is Basic Black (121045) card stock. I layered the three squares as pictured and used Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430) to lift up the three squares. I centered the motif this time on the Whisper White (100730) piece. I cut a rectangle 1″ X 4″ of Calypso Coral (122925) to place below the motif. I stamped the sentiment centered directly on this strip. I decided to skip the Black Baker’s Twine (141682) this time.

Below are all of the cards I made with this cute Trick or Tweet (wood blocks 147725/ clear 147722) stamp set! Aren’t the animals cute and I like the sentiments too! This stamp set is a keeper for Halloween cards in my opinion! Which animal is your favorite? I am partial to the kitty myself. Although I do like the elephant too. Ok so they are all cute!

 Please leave a comment below with your choice. Thanks!

Have a wonderful evening and Happy Stampin’

Working with other Stampers in my Stampin' Up business is such a fine thing! I love all my customers both those whom are brand new to stamping or have been stamping for 20+ years! As a result of stamping for a bit, I have a wealth of beautiful, handmade greeting cards and gift card holders for your enjoyment. My hope is that each of you will give the gift of a hand made snail mailed card to a family member, friend or just someone who needs a lift. What a joy to receive something other than bills and junk mail in your mailbox!
