Making Every Day Bright is the stamp set being featured at this week’s What Will You Stamp? challenge. My cat was insistent on participating in this Halloween project, so this is what happened:
The first thing I did was use the Cat Punch to make Hal (his new name) from Basic Black cardstock. He wanted a scary bow, so I let him shred some Nature’s Twine in the Blackberry Bliss color.
Then, Hal chose the spooky lightbulb in the Making Every Day Bright stamp set; the one with a spider and web.
Hal got his way, and I stamped four bulbs in black ink on Whisper White cardstock, letting him punch them out with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. I used a Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend to color the ends. The stamp set has a neat, electrical cord, to attach the bulbs, so we stamped that in Black ink on a Whisper White cardstock layer.
We chose a Gorgeous Grape card base, and layered it with Pumpkin Pie cardstock. You can see how the Whisper White, top layer, is crooked, because Hal and I were struggling. He wanted to emboss it, but I liked it smooth, and said, “enough is enough!”
Hal wanted a place to sit, so the Bunch of Banners die cut makes a good spot. I cut the border from Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and stamped “Trick or Treat” in black ink on Whisper White cardstock. We found the sentiment in the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, and Hal agreed it would be just right for Halloween. I think he’s more into the tricks than the treating.
Hal is quite proud of his creation, and wants to show it off at two challenges. The theme and colors were perfect, so how could I say no?
Isn’t this a fun stamp set? If you have Making Every Day Bright, we’d love for you to contribute your project to our gallery at What Will You Stamp? You might even be selected as our guest designer!
Thanks for putting up with Hal. He wants you to come “trick or treat” at his house on Halloween, so he can scare you.
