Stampin’ Up! Halloween Spooky Cat Gift Card Holder for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop


Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month our theme is “Halloween Fun”. Here is the card I created:

The Spooky Night Designer Series Paper has images that are compatible with both the Cat Punch and the pumpkin dies in the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits Die set.  So many options and possibilities that make using the individual images an easy task!  The images can be fussy-cut from the DSP, as well.

To begin, die cut the Mini Treat Bag from the striped patterned paper in the Spooky Night DSP.  Assemble the bag following the illustrations on the die packaging using a small amount of liquid glue to adhere the seam and flaps.  Cut a 7-1/2″ length of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon.  Wrap it around the bag and adhere the ends with tape.  (Place the seam on the front of the bag, as it will be covered with the label.)  Use Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie markers using the Direct-To-Rubber technique to ink the image on the Halloween stamp from the Labels to Love stamp set.  Stamp the image on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Punch out the label with the Everyday Label Punch.

Adhere a generous amount of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back side of the label.  Cut a 48″ length of Black Metallic Thread.  Adhere loops of the metallic thread to the Dimensionals on the back of the label, as shown.  When you are satisfied with the look, adhere the label to the front of the bag over the ribbon.  The Dimensionals will secure the label in place.  Embellish the label with a couple of small Black Rhinestones. Adhere a large Jack-o-Lantern image from the DSP to the bottom right corner of the bag front using Liquid Glue.

The pull-out card is easy and quick to assemble.  Adhere a panel of striped pattern DSP to the card panel by applying a thin line of Liquid Glue to the side edges and bottom edge only.  This forms the pocket for the gift card.  Adhere two Jack-o-Lanterns and a Cat image from the DSP along the striped panel as shown.  Stamp the sentiments from the Spooky Cat stamp set with Basic Black Archival ink. Cut a 4″ length of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon, fold in half and staple in place at the top of the panel.  Cover the staple by adhering a tiny pumpkin fussy-cut from the DSP with a Mini Glue Dot.  The pull-out card is pretty with or without the Gift Card!
