Pumpkins & Ghosts & Bats -oh my!

Project #6 - Halloween Stair Step Card

This is my favorite project from Stamp Camp! Kinda putzy with all the little steps to put it together, but very simple to make.

This is what it looks like open.

Here is how it's made:

1. Take a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, line it up in a paper cutter so you're cutting in the center (2 3/4") going the length of the piece. The actual cut is from 3" to 7 1/4". This makes the opening in the middle of the card to allow the steps to be folded on the right side. Turn the cardstock 90 degrees to the left so you can score the right side of that cut at 3", 6", and 7 1/4". Then score the bottom (or what will be the left side of the card) at 4 1/4" to fold the card in half.

2. The black background is actually 2 pieces of cardstock- 2 1/2 x 4" and 1 x 2 3/4". The seam is covered up by the large pumpkin.

3. The moon is a 1 3/8" circle of More Mustard. The bat is the new Bat punch from the big catalog.

4. The Ghost is actually the body of the Owl punch upside down! Add some googly eyes to finish him. Glue Dots were the perfect size to stick them on.

5. The pumpkins are Pumpkin Pie cardstock with Tangerine Tango sponged on the edges of each piece. The large one is the large (1 3/4" long) oval and 3 1 3/4" circles, the small one is the new oval punch in the Holiday Mini that is 15/16" long and 2 1" circles. The vines are from the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlet in Old Olive- I cut it up into pieces to be the vines and stems. I drew some lines on the stem of the larger pumpkin with an Old Olive marker.

6. The saying is from Grateful Greetings- I used Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Basic Black markers to ink it up. It's punched with the 1 3/4" circle punch, layered on a 2" circle I cut with the Circle Scissors, then layered on a piece of Old Olive punched with 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch.

Lots of steps, but worth the work! I think it's cute!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the projects from the September Stamp Camp! If you need to order anything and don't have a demonstrator to work with, I would love to help you!
