Halloween Hop with Petaloo and Authentique Mysterious

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

authentique-mysterious-halloween-easel-card-by-kathy-clement-product-by-petaloo-photo-3OK..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.

You Put a Spell on Me Spooky Card

you-put-a-spell-on-me-card-authentique-mysterious-by-kathy-clement-photo-2The 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?

Accordion Style Flip Album for your Mysterious Halloween Table

mysterious-accordion-fold-swing-album-authentique-by-kathy-clement-product-by-petaloo-photo-6Every 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.

    WOW WOW WOW. You have done it this time my friend!! I am loving all of them of course but I am partial to ravens/crows, so the one with the cat hissing and the crows, really took my fancy. Then of course you wow us even more by making that last one, accordion style, double sided! AMAZING. Is there a tutorial for that somewhere.
    I really LOVE the paper collection you are using too, what is it called again? I know you have mentioned it before? or is it a collection from Polly? Must have some!
    I think I will catch a flight down to see you and you can teach me how to make such lovely things, we could get into some trouble together, I know it.

    WOW! Somebody was up all night making all these! They’re too beautiful for words Kathy. If pressed to choose a favourite I think I’d choose the Easel Card … and the fold out. LOL. Aw look, I got it down to 2 after ages of scrolling back and forth trying to make up my mind, so when I got down to two I thought that would be good enough. LOL
    You’re so brilliant Kathy. I wish I lived next door to you so that I could come around and say…. “can you teach me how to do this?” .. and drive you nuts all the time. LOL
    Sending love ~ Cobs. x

    Wow, Kathy! You sure know how to win a girl’s heart! Not one, but three amazing Halloween creations! My favorite is the You Put a Spell on Me Spooky card! That moon just pops amidst the blacks, grays, and white! But all three are a Halloween triple treat! Big hugs!
