They Are Watching! - Stampin' Up! Among the Branches

  The more I use the Among the Branches stamp set the more I'm loving it.  It's nice to have a stamp set and coordinating embossing folder that covers 3 card giving occasions, especially when those 3 are so close together as Halloween, fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas.  You can get your money's worth for sure especially get the bundle the includes the stamp set and Woodland embossing folder.

  We made this design last week at my monthly stamp club and I was joking that this card is the reason you put curtains on your windows.  Those creepy eyes peeking out are enough to get your imagination going!  And now I definitely need curtains for my front!

  The card base is Basic Black, then a layer of Rich Razzleberry and then a piece of Basic Gray embossed with the Woodland folder.  We stamped the eyes and and crow in Basic Black, nestling them among the tree trunks.

  A small strip of the Black Glimmer paper and a Pumpkin Pie knot divide the card front. The "spooky" sentiment circle was stamped in Rich Razzleberry and cut out with the circles framelits (you can also use the 2" circle punch).  We used a black marker to color in the eyes for some contrast and then popped it up with dimensionals.

  This would be a super quick and easy design to make if you needed to make Halloween party invitations or a smaller variation to make a tag for a treat bag.

   Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
