Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Spooky Cat stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first and third Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for this week's hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Betty's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Lou's project and are ready to CASE! (Copy And Share Everything)

I have two projects to share with you.

Now that all my kids are grown and my grandchildren live out of state, I don't get too worked up about Halloween anymore.  However, many of the folks in my stamp clubs love Halloween so I look for fun projects to make for them every year.  These projects were designed for my September stamp clubs and were a huge hit.  The first project uses the Treat Tubes as the base for a tag featuring the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, Vintage Crochet Trim, and the branch Thinlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  The large tag uses the Scalloped Tag Topper and Triple Banner punches and the small tag uses the 1-3/8" circle punch to create the arch and the 1/8" handheld circle punch to create the hole for the Linen Thread.


Supplies I used to make this card -- 

Stamps:  Spooky Cat; Inks:  Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand; Cardstock:  Soft Suede, Very Vanilla; Designer Series Paper:  Painted Autumn; Embellishments:  Treat Tubes, Black Rhinestone Jewels, Vintage Crochet Trim, Linen Thread; Adhesives:  Fast Fuse, Mini Glue Dots, Fine Tip Glue Pen; Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Scalloped Tag Topper punch, Triple Banner punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, 1/8" handheld circle punch, Big Shot, Seasonal Layers Thinlits

I really like the cat image in this stamp set created with all the fun Halloween-themed words and phrases.  The wall is created with Embossing Paste that was sponged to give a grungy look (as were all the other elements of the card front).  The pumpkins were cut out from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.


Supplies I used to make this card --

What an adorable card, Mickey! The embossing paste bricks are the cat's meow! I love the distressing. The treat tube holder is cute, too. I love the branch. Thank you for the inspiration!


Cute design for the test tube tag and I love the richness the distressing adds to your beautiful card.


Love your design Mickey! The pumpkins are the perfect pop of color!

Carol Carriveau

Wonderful ideas!!!

Stesha Bloodhart

Love the brick embossing on the very vanilla! The combination is fantastic!


Very beautiful! I love the color combos and the eclectic look of your cat card.

Natalie Lapakko

Great projects, Mickey! The cat card is so sophisticated; I love the brick background! The Halloween treats are also super cute! I think even adults appreciate a little treat now and then, especially when it is decorated so nicely!

Barbara Abke

I would like to know what paper and ink you used on the owl. I really like him a lot.

Lou Kitzelman

2 fabulous projects Mickey. I love how you decorated the treat tube and that card is superb. So happy to joining you on SRC.


Wonderful projects Mickey! The card has so much depth and texture. Love it.
