Bundles of Spooky, Remarkable Blog Hop

The Remarkables keep on blog hopping! And we are sticking with our theme of bundles, showing you awesome ideas, using tools that work great together, and that save you a little bit of cash. I mean that's awesome, right?

I like to send seasonal cards to all my "littles" so let's get to work on some Halloween cards! I really do like Halloween, the orange and black, the cats, the witch's hats, the owls and spooky trees. The candy corn and pumpkin everything! But I do tend to like my Halloween a bit more on the cute side than the spooky side.

As you may know(check out my last blog post), I am currently loving the parquet technique with all of Stampin' Up's wonderful DSP. So I decided to start there with the Happy Haunting DSP. I cut a bunch of it into 3/4" wide pieces. This is my table at the beginning, it certainly looks Halloweeny!

And here's my table after a few minutes of fun.

Wait, you say, what does this have to do with Bundles? I know, this is all really cool and looks like it should be a bundle, but the feature (mostly, I'll admit all sorts of awesome Stampin' Up! product started showing up) of my blog post is the bundle of the Happy Scenes stamp set with the Hearth and Home thinlits. This set has a really cool window frame, which you can see on the right side of the above picture, and will now see here in my first card.

Isn't this cute? A fun mixed up backdrop, a crooked window and spider webs!
And what could be better than all that? Why cats of course! There's another awesome bundle in the catalog which has the Festive Fireplace stamp set with the Festive Fireside Framelits which has a cat. And cats and windows often go together, so I just had to use that one too!

And better than one cat? Why three of course!

I got fancy here, cutting the edges off the window frame, flipping it on it's side and adding the window box/ledge. And I'm still having fun with my parquet technique backgrounds.
Here's all three cards together.

And just for fun, here's the window die, with someone looking in!

Seriously! I think that is the cutest thing ever! The little vampire and the cute little cat are from the Haunt You Later stamp set. The greeting is from the Cheer All Year stamp set, the set has images and greetings for Halloween, Fall, and Christmas. Which is the same deal with the Happy Scenes stamp set. If you don't like spiders, or want more options, there are cute Fall and Winter scenes.

So, I hope you had a bundle of spooky fun here on the crafty yogi blog.
Stay Crafty!
