Sharing a love of creating handmade cards

Clever Cats – Halloween

Today marks the start of the new July – December 2021 Mini Catalog  and the second Sale-A-Bration of the year! This round of Sale-A-Bration runs from August 3 to September 30, 2021. To kick off the new mini catalog, I have made a card featuring the Clever Cats stamp set from the  new Mini Catalog. This card was a must for me since I adore cats and live with two crazy ones. Enjoy!

Cardstock measurements (all in inches):

Basic Black

  • 11 x 4 1/4, scored at 5 1/2 (card base)

Basic White

  • 5 x 3 3/4 – outside layer
  • 5 1/4 x 4 – inside layer
  • Scraps for cat, hat, and pumpkin

Gorgeous Grape

  • 5 1/4 x 4


How to make the card (or watch the video):

Die cut the Gorgeous Grape cardstock with the rectangle Picture This die.

Layer the grape cardstock on top of the outside Basic White cardstock layer and trace the inside of the upper left corner of the top rectangle and then trace the inside of the lower right corner of the bottom rectangle.

Using the Stamparatus, stamp the spider string and spider in the top rectangle then stamp the small cat head in the bottom rectangle.

Wait for several seconds for the black ink to dry, then erase pencil marks.

Adhere grape cardstock to the white cardstock that has the spider and cat stamped on it.

Stamp broom in Old Olive ink in the middle rectangle, then stamp the greeting in black ink below the broom.

Stamp the pumpkin face in Pumpkin Pie ink on white cardstock. When stamping the solid stamp over the face, stamp off for a lighter orange color.

Stamp the cat and hat in black ink also on white cardstock.

Fussy cut the pumpkin face, cat, and hat, then adhere each with Stampin’ Dimensionals to front of card.

Tie a small bow out of Black Glitter Organdy ribbon and adhere with a glue dot.


Attach Matte Black Dots as desired.

For the inside layer, stamp greeting, bats, and cat as desired and adhere to the black card base.

That is it! Thanks for stopping by…please come back soon!
