Dynamic Duos #75

Happy Monday everyone!   I decided to participate in this week’s Dynamic Duos challenge using Tangerine Tango and Basic Black.  Dessert option: Halloween.


I just recently purchased the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set from Stampin’ Up and I LOVE this stamp set.  I have had a lot of fun making cards with it.  More info at the bottom of my post regarding this stamp set.

So here is the card I am submitting for the challenge this week.  I’ve taken my inspiration from many cards on  Pinterest for the design of this card.

100_8675         100_8677

Items you will need:

  • Whisper White card stock, Basic Black card stock
  • Stamp sets:   Gorgeous Grunge, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Inks:  Tangerine Tango, Basic Black
  • Embellishments:  Tangerine Tango button from the Brights collection, ribbon from my stash, Washi tape for inside of card
  • Adhesives:  tape runner, glue dots
  • Other tools:   10-second bow maker and Perfect Layers tool

Assembling the card:

  1. This card measures 4″ x 6″ so you will need a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 8″ x 6 ” folded in half on the 8″ side.
  2. Cut another piece of Whisper White card stock  3 3/4″  x  5 3/4″
  3. Using Tangerine Tango ink stamp as shown using stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
  4. Using Basic Black ink stamp as shown.  Stamp Happy Halloween in bottom right corner of card.
  5. Attach ribbon as shown.  Attach this piece to Basic Black card stock and using the Perfect Layers tool create a 1/16″ border on all sides.  (I just noticed in my picture that the bottom part of the front of the card is in a groove in my coffee table and the border doesn’t look right – Ugh!)
  6. Attach to front of card.
  7. Make a bow with the 10-second bow maker and attach to right side of card using a glue dot.
  8. Using a glue dot attach button to center of bow.
  9. On the inside of the card put a strip of Washi tape.  There you have it.  A quick, simple, and not so traditional card for Halloween.  Enjoy!
