The temperature changes bring thoughts of Fall and Halloween including bonfires, football and trick or treating!  I associate “owls” with fall just like pumpkins, scarecrows and hay rides.  As a part of the Halloween Card Blog Hop, I am sharing a card using the Have a Hoot stamp set from Stampin” Up!. 

I am Traci Raether, Creator and Author of the Plum Crazy Stamping Blog. I hope you enjoy the many cards in the Halloween Card Blog Hop!

In this tutorial, I am using the Stampin’ Up! In-Color cardstock, Designer Series Paper (DSP), and inks since they reflect the fall season in shades of green, gold and brown.
