Stampendous Saturday: Background Stamps & Stickers

Be sure you don't miss my other posts: Party Polly (Paper Pretties preview) and Basket Full of Flowers (Paper and Such preview)!


Welcome to another Stampendous Saturday!  Today I'm showing off a fun and easy way to put together a quick card, using a background stamp and some wonderful Class A'Peel stickers.  This whole card came together in under 30 minutes (it was actually closer to 20, but I stopped to talk about the pumpkins with my daughter) - I love cards like that.

I pulled out my supplies - a few different sheet of stickers (Spooky Fence,  Scary Spiders, and Spooky Words), and several stamps and got started.  On my card base I stuck the fence and the spider web.  Then I stamped the Frightful Phrases background stamp on a large card stock piece, and matted it with black card stock to set it off.  I stamped the pumpkins (Pumpkinstein, Mumpkin, and Count Jack - all for sale individually) on a separate pice of white card stock, colored them, and fussy cut them.  I thought Count Jack looked cute up there near the spider web, I popped Mumpkin up on a pop dot, and then adhered Pumpkinstein in the corner of the pre-stamped background panel.  To finish it off, I added a few more bat sand spider stickers to the card, and poof! Complete!

Now, for the fun part...candy! Today I'm going to leave it up to you...that's right, you! Leave me a comment below telling me which one of the stamps I used today you'd like to win, and if I draw your name you'll win your choice! Here are the stamps again, so you can get a good look:

Awesome card. I can't believe we already need to start thinking about Halloween and all those other holidays. Before we know it Christmas will be here. Seems like just yesterday we celebrated last Christmas. LOL!
