Stamper's Anonymous Halloween 2020 - Snarky Cats Halloween Trio: #3

Are you tired of me yet? Here's the last Snarky Cat Halloween Card 'Trick or Treat Smell My Feet" (the largest one at 5 x 6.5 inches), using the new Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous Halloween Stamps. This is also the last of the cards shown on Tim's Live if you viewed it, but I have three more projects to show you in the next week. I hope you've liked all the cats so far. Enjoy!
Cut all the papers you need...Heavystock to 4 3/8 x 5 7/8 plus extra for cutting out more cats and pumpkin, black cardstock to 4.5 x 6, Circle Kraft Paper 4 7/8 x 6 3/8, a 1 3/8 by 6 piece of kraft for the floor part, and a kraft card base to 5 x 6.5. Using the Heavystock and Stamping Platform, stamp a jumping cat in the upper middle area using Jet Black Archival. Note: my photo shows a stamped pumpkin as well, but I changed my mind later, and chose to stamp and cut out the pumpkin separately. Stamp the jumping cat again on sticky note for masking.
Cut out the sticky note image of the cat, and place on regular image. Stamp the background image from Tapestry for wall paper over the cat using Vintage Photo Archival. Let dry.
Add two strips of Tissue Tape to the 1 3/8 x 6 inch piece of kraft. A little kraft will be left showing for a baseboard look. Ink the edges in Vintage Photo and adhere to card front. Stamp the spider and web in the upper left corner of the card front in Jet Black. Add card front to black cardstock mat, and distress edges. Adhere to circle paper and then kraft card base.
Stamp the sentiment a few times on Heavystock to make cutting out the words a little easier. Color the front of the Deco Frame with a Black Soot Distress Crayons and rub the crayon in to all the bumps in the frame. Use a paper towel to wipe off the excess not in the recessed areas. Adhere circle kraft paper to the back. Cut out the sentiment in groups of two words, then one, and so on. Ink the edges of the words with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and adhere to the circle paper in the frame. Adhere to card front on the upper right corner.
Stamp the other two cats and pumpkin on heavystock in Jet Black and cut out. Use Distress Crayons and a Detail Water Brush to color in pumpkins and cats. Add shadows as well as color the edges of all of them.  Adhere pumpkin to middle.
Die cut cat face from Frightening Faces die with black cardstock and adhere to pumpkin. Foam tape cats to the sides of the pumpkin. Add Glossy Accents to the eye balls of the cats as well as to the spider body.

  7. I could never get tired of your wonderful creations! Another fab card.

  8. I was playing with this card today and found a typo you might want to fix. On your measurements for the dot paper it say 4 7/7 and I think it should be 4 3/4. I love that you put the measurements in so I am not trying to guess the size and scale of things. Makes it soooooo much easier to try things. Love all your snarky cat cards. thanks as always for sharing.

    1. Hi thanks. I fixed it...should be 4 7/8 inches. Thanks for paying attention!!!! lol!
