Have a Hoot MojoMonday Sketch 545

 Another hot and smoky day here in Nevada. Supposedly tomorrow is going to be in the low 70’s and the wind should blow all the smoke back to California. I am so looking forward to cooler weather! I’m working on my Halloween cards and for today’s card I decided to base it off of the MojoMonday sketch 545

I started with a Pumpkin Pie card base and added a piece of Whisper White cut to 4 x 5 1/4. I ran this through my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine with the Cobwebs 3D embossing folder. I cut a piece of Plaid Tidings DSP to 2 1/4 by 5 1/4 and glued this over the embossed Whisper White piece. 

I stamped Spooky from the Festive Corners stamp set on a strip of Pumpkin Pie cut to 3/4 by 4. I trimmed the end with the Banners Pick a Punch. I cut a piece of Bumblebee using my 2 1/2 in punch and stamped the owl from the Have a Hoot stamp set. I also stamped the image on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla. I colored the images using light and dark Crumb Cake, Mango Melody, Basic Black and Cinnamon Cider stampin’ blends. I then die cut the Very Vanilla images with the Peek-A-Hoot dies. I popped this up with dimensionals on the image stamped on the Bumblebee circle. I cut the spiderweb out of basic black with the same dies.

I glued the Bumblebee circle down about 2/3 on the DSP and 1 inch down. I used a glue dot to place the spiderweb down. I then used dimensionals to place the spooky banner even with the top and just under the owls wing. I added a few of the 2020-2021 in color enamel dots to finish off the front.

For the inside of my card I cut a piece of Whisper White to 4 x 5 1/4 added a couple strips of the DSP cut to 1/2 inch. I stamped the Boo from the Have a Hoot stamp set on Pumpkin Pie and trimmed it down and popped it up with dimensionals. I added a small spider that I had left over from another card. It was stamped from the Hallows Night Magic set.

I used the same DSP on a Whisper White envelope flap and stamped the spider on the front lower left corner and my card and envelope were done.
