I signed up for a swap where we all made shaker cards. I had just received my order for the products in the July-December Mini Catalog. I had ordered mostly Christmas themed products, but I wasn’t quite ready for Christmas cards.

Challenge accepted!

I opened my Evernote notebook to look for what I could use.

I searched for Halloween and really the only thing I ordered for Halloween was the Festive & Bright Bundle. I used the Halloween stamp in Festive & Bright and the coordinating Festive Finishes Dies. (I love that you can cut the whole image or just one side or the other!) I had ordered the Cloche Bundle. It’s designed for shaker cards, but would that work for Halloween? Sure! Put that spider in the cloche with a vellum ghost! Those trees look pretty spooky in this scene too. I needed more than one ghost to shake. What else could I add? I searched my embellishments. I had the Sequins for Everything. That will work! A bit of the Metallic Mesh ribbon might look like spider webs. I really wanted a few spiders. Did I have a die with something that might work as a spider? You will never guess what I found!!! You’ll have to watch the video or read the directions to find out.

I have to say that I used a lot of bits and pieces and this is a long list of products. Look through your products and you may have things you can use instead. For instance, I colored with Stampin’ Write Markers. I only used 4 colors, but they aren’t all in the same packs. There’s just a tiny bit of coloring. You can use Stampin’ Blends, Watercolor Pencils, or a Blender Pen to pick up ink from a stamp pad.

Here are the products I used. Click the individual products you want be taken to my online store at Stampin’ Up!
