Open if you Dare for a Scary Halloween!

We have a seasonal challenge for you at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge.  Come have some spooky fun with us! 

I recently purchased a really fun set of dies that can be used to create pop-up cards.  The set by Stampendous is Fran's pop-up Stage Dies and was super fun to experiment with to get just the right scene for Halloween.  But first the front of the card!

 I started with Sizzix embossing folder Cracked and a DCWV cardstock. A little sanding brings out the design.  Scrappy Cat's Twist of Lime stamps the sentiment in Brilliance Graphite Black.  

The inside of the card features Hero Arts' DC161, and Witches Feet Stamp and Cut for the sentiment both from 2016.  The black images are stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black  Fireworks in Tangelo and Dandelion at the spots of color to the pumpkins and moon.  The background is sponged in with Brilliance Mediterranean Blue, Graphite Black, and Moonlight White.   Spellbinders Labels Eight provides the sign for the sentiment. 

Please show us your best "BOO" themed project and link up at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  Remember to use at least one stamp that is more than a year old and join a maximum of ten challenges. 


  1. Ohh!! What a fun and fabulous card. Love this awesome Halloween scene you created inside of this card, the front is just a prelude of what awaits for the recipient when they open it.
    Love it.

  2. Neva, this is absolutely stunning! I too just bought some pop up dies, that I haven't played with yet, you have inspired me to create a couple of pop up Halloween cards for my Niece and Nephew. Cx

  3. Pop-up cards are so spectacular! You must have enjoyed making it. I like the front too- great prelude to the main event.

  4. Cute, cute, cute! You have definitely captured the essence of Halloween with this "scary" scene, Neva. I have to check out the pop up dies!!

  5. This is soooo cool! Loving the dimension and color!❤️
