"Happy Haunting": Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week

Hey there, everyone!  It is that time of the month, and also that part of the year....where Lawn Fawn introduces all NINE new stamp sets for fall/winter, and we introduce three of them to you this week!!  Today we are showcasing a new holiday set called "Happy Haunting"....which of course, is all about Halloween!!  This is going to be a must have if you love creating fun Halloween cards and goodies!

I was immediately drawn to the house because of how fabulously it can be paper pieced!! I really love how the house turned out, and the sentiment is just super cute!  I used Card Patterns Sketch #129 to help with the design of my card....here is what I created!
"Happy Haunting" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (gray) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper/Pin/Felt Ghost: Making Memories (Spook Alley: Words, Foil Brocade, Flocked Spider, Icon Stripe, Witches Feet)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Happy Haunting set)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Diecut Tag: My Mind's Eye
Lace: vintage craft supply
Twine: Darice Inc.
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs (large black) & Kaiser Craft (small black)
Colored Pencils: Heidi Swapp
Sandpaper

Instructions:  Make card from gray cardstock. Sand the edges of a slightly smaller words paper block, and adhere to the front.  Sand the edges of a diecut tag, and adhere to the middle. Sand the edges of a brocade paper strip, and adhere to the middle.  Add a strip of black lace to the bottom of the brocade paper layer.  Cut a circle from flocked spider paper, sand the edges, and adhere. Stamp the house to three different patterned papers and a cream cardstock block, and cut out.  Layer together, color in the trim, and then adhere the house to the right side of the spiderweb circle.  Stamp the sentiment to a vintage cream cardstock strip, and cut a banner end to the left side.  Wrap the sentiment strip around a ghost topped pin, and adhere to the left side of the house.  Tie a bow from twine, adhere it below the sentiment strip, and then accent the middle with a large black jewel.  Accent the top of the brocade paper strip with tiny black jewels to finish.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Lawn Fawn gals have come up with using "Happy Haunting"! ♥♥♥
