Halloween Hop with Petaloo and Authentique Mysterious
Hello, Friends! It’s a great week to check out the Petaloo blog because we’re celebrating with a Halloween Hop with Petaloo and Authentique. There is so much great inspiration for the upcoming holiday along with some fabulous prize packages that I know you’d love to get your crafty little fingers on! Just take a look at this incredible prize package from Petaloo!
Each design team member received Authentique’s gorgeous Mysterious collection to play with. This collection is printed on heavyweight smooth cardstock and like all Authentique products, printed 100% in the USA! It’s a nice mix of vintage cute and vintage spooky (but not creepy) images. I rode out Hurricane Matthew by creating some very fun projects to share with you here.
Jolly Halloween Easel Card
OK..so I love plaid…and this vintage orange plaid is too fabulous for words! I created this card with the 6×6 pad of Mysterious papers. Card makers like to work with smaller patterns, and the 6×6 pad has all the wonderful patterns found in the 12×12 papers reduced in size. My card is 5.5″ square and makes great use of the sturdy matte cardstock stickers that come with the collection. I paired up some ghostly gray Petaloo Textured Blossoms and Textured Elements with the Fall Mix of Burlap Leaves here. The flowers were spritzed with just a hint of Tattered Angels Jack O Lantern Glimmer Mist.
The inside of the card uses more of the fabulous plaid paper along with some chit chat stickers and image stickers from the collection. I love that the chit chat stickers give you the opportunity to create custom sentiments!
You Put a Spell on Me Spooky Card
The black and white pages in this collection are perfectly spooky without being creepy. I created this 5×7 top fold card with 12×12 papers and fussy cut elements. My full moon was made by cutting black and white bat paper with a circle die, and inking with various yellow inks. I love the way it pops against the monochromatic background. The black cat is fussy cut from one of the 12 x12 sheets as well. My blow cluster is topped with another Gray Textured Blossom and 2 mini gray textured blossoms. How perfect is that color match?
Bats in your belfrey? No, they are inside this card though. I layered some 12×12 papers, fussy cut elements, and stickers to create a tag pocket where you can write ghostly greetings and maybe tuck in a little chocolate for extra fun.
Accordion Style Flip Album for your Mysterious Halloween Table
Every Halloween Party needs a little table decoration, and this clever accordion style flip fold album is a fun way to decorate. I paired up the 6×6 papers with a Sizzix die from Karen Burniston and lots of pretty Petaloo Posies. This photo shows the album when it is closed.
The real fun starts when you open it out for display!
And I decorated it on both sides so no one feels left out. Here’s a closer look.
It’s a really fun alternative to a banner, dontcha think?
