Freshly Made Sketches: Boo

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Mitchell and here’s what I did with it!

Poppystamps Halloween Assemblage

I just got a package of fabulous new products from Poppystamps and it was still out on my craft desk when I looked at this week's FMS sketch. The combination of dies and sketch worked perfectly and for me, this was a rare card that came together quickly and easily!

I found some fun paper way in the back of my stash. Then I used all the dies from Halloween Assemblage and the fun Boo Poe Script die to fill each area. To keep it fresh, I cut the dies in white to pop from the patterns, then added a few hints of glitter paper. You can see that I popped a couple of the dies, and I also layered up the sparkly Boo with three layers behind it.

Poppystamps Halloween Assemblage

I had such a great time putting this together that I went ahead with it even knowing that I have no idea to whom I would send it! My sons in their 20s would not appreciate the cuteness - nor would my teenage nieces (in fact, I'm thinking that they hate "cute" more than my sons because they are trying to so hard to be grown up).  My friends are all my age with grown children (and no grandbabies yet). My work friends either have grown children or other friends are younger and haven't started families.  There are literally no children in my life! It really takes some of the fun out of making cards.  Maybe this is all a reason to make even more Halloween cards and donate them? But I've never seen any group calling for Halloween cards.  Oh well - it was fun!!

I hope to see you playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.


Dies: Poppystamps Boo Poe Script and Halloween Assemblage

Paper: Doodlebug Haunted Manor 6x6 (really old!), Memory Box Majestic Hues Glitter Pad (the silver) and Graceful Garden Glitter Pad (the orange and green)


  1. What a fun take on the sketch! That little ghost and the boo sentiment are so cute! Maybe you could donate your cute kid cards to a children's hospital?

  2. I love making Halloween cards and I have no one to give them to also! They are fun to make and this one with the patterned paper and cute images is cuteness overload. I bring mine to work and hope someone there has a use for them!

  3. Too cute to spook, Kim! How about a neighbor - tucked inside a little basket of pumpkin muffins? I'd like to be that neighbor!

  4. Bet your blog friends would love to get this card! I'm not big on Halloween, but I do love cute, like this! Perfect to put the sentiment under the ghost! So many great details!

  5. This is such an adorable Halloween card! Perfect diecuts!

  6. This is so much fun! Those wee die-cuts are just adorable and look fabulous against the patterned paper.
