Happy Halloween | Gimme Sugar | Bloom Benefit

For today’s card, I used the Haunted Halloween (AT-0205) Bloom Benefit  (Available with an order of $75 or moresee the end of this post for more details on the Bloom Benefits) from the Journey Holiday Trends Mini (CL-0028) as the focal point for this card.  I had leftover of the Black (IP-0099) and Silver (IP-0100) embossing powder that I had mixed together from the card the day before so I decided to try it with this stamp.  I do love how the Silver mixed with Black looks.  I embossed the image onto a piece of Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) cardstock and cut it out using the Fancy Labels Die (DI-0035).  Using the same size die, I cut out a piece of the Mirror Silver (CS-0137) cardstock.  I then cut that piece in half and used Easy Glide (AD-0081) to adhere the Happy Halloween piece.

Yahoo for Bloom Benefits!! (yes, even coaches can get them with their qualifying order)

I took a piece of River Stone (CS-0094) cardstock and embossed it with the Spider Web Die Set (DI-0107).  [I really love my Amaze Machine and Journey Platinum because they show you a colored picture on the magnetic platform of how to make your  “sandwich” for embossing, die cutting and using your dies for embossing].  I took my Buttercream Ink pad (IP-0031) and gently rubbed it over the raised image and then did the same with the Rock Candy (IP-0028).

I love getting the most out of my dies.

I cut a small piece of pattern paper from the Fall Fest Prints (PP-0048) and some Black Satin Ribbon (AC-0106) and adhered them to the embossed River Stone piece.  Using Easy Glide, I adhered the River Stone card front to the Tangerine Fusion card base.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085), I popped up the Happy Halloween piece onto the card front as well.

The bats came from the Snapshot Frames Die (DI-0045).  I cut one out of Black Licorice(CS-0003) cardstock and the other I applied a piece of our White Liner Sheets (AD-0113) to a piece of Black Licorice cardstock before running the second bat through the die.  I then peeled off the backing and applied Sparkle Dust (AC-0013).  I applied those to the card front using Foam Squares.  Magical Candy Drops (AC-0106) were added.

The Sparkle Dust on the Black Licorice cardstock looks amazing!


For the inside of the card I used a couple more pieces from the Fall Fest Prints paper pack and then added the sentiment Gimme Some Sugar from the Gimme Sugar ATS (AT-0205).  The spider came from the Potion Tags (SS-0390) [the Potion Tags coordinate with the Bread Tags Die (DI-0133).  The words were stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) and the spider was stamped in Rock Candy.

The Fall Fest Prints are so pretty, I have to use every piece.

Bloom Benefits:
The Bloom Benefits are shown in the beginning of both the Journey Holiday Trends Mini (CL-0028)  and the Annual Catalog (CL-0025).  There are different Bloom Benefits available in each catalog and you can mix and match them.  You don’t need to select your Bloom Benefits from just one catalog.  I love that for any order over $50  you get to choose a Bloom Benefit.  Who doesn’t love to get something special with their order. There are different Bloom Benefits available depending on your order amount (the amount before tax and shipping – and yes coaches can get Bloom Benefits with their orders as well).

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
