Super Speedy Humorous Halloween Card AYSI259

by Joanne James17. September 2021 13:00

I'm back with my second post today and my design team card for our new challenge over at As you See It where it's time for a speed stamping challenge with a humorous twist:


Speedy wit - what a challenge! Here's my card:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I decided that I would go for some sideways humour and use the Halloween greeting from the 'Well Defined' stamp set. I stamped it in black and cut it out using one of the Hippo and Friends Dies, and paired it with some fun retired Halloween Motley Monsters designer series paper from my stash. I added a ribbon tab to my sentiment to finish my card:


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

This really was a super speedy card, largely because the DSP does all the work. My finished time?


3 minutes and 41 seconds - I think this must be a personal speed stamping record! 

Here's a summary of our challenge rules:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging project that fits the challenge.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we can leave you lots of lovely comments. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSIXXX when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab on the As You See It Challenge homepage.
  • In a speed stamping challenge, please time yourself and say in your post how long your card took to complete. 
We look forward to seeing your creations in the AYSI gallery.

Enjoy the rest of your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

This is so much fun Joanne! That wonderful paper is the perfect background for your brilliantly snarky stamped label. Vicky x

I love that you use retired products in your creations.  I’m sure many of us have tons of retired products that we need ideas on how to use it up.

Hi Christine I appreciate your comment! Whilst it's lovely to share the new and I do like to be able to use things people can then buy if they so wish, it's also great to give ideas for things they already have too. We all have paper we could use up and stamp sets we love and can't bear to part with that we'd like fresh ideas for. I know I do!
