Good Morning Stampin’ Friends! It’s the weekend! YAY!  Hope you are able to get in a little crafting time this weekend!  Today I want to share some of the fun projects I created with the September Paper Pumpkin kit!  The kit is called Something Good To Eat and it contained all of the materials you needed to create 16 adorable Halloween and fall-themed treat holders.  There were so many extra supplies in that kit that I was able to create oodles of different cards too!  I simply used some cardstock and other fun products that I had on hand!

Check out some of the extra projects I created with the left over materials in the kit:

Fall-Themed Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Sharing a little Halloween fun with you today! This particular card showcases a great way to use the spooky patterns found in the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.  It’s a quick and simple card to create! Plus, you can use this layout over and over again with any patterned paper to create cards for any occasion! How cool is that?

halloween-dsp

To create this card, cut a piece of basic black cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 2 inch piece of the striped pattern from the Halloween Night DSP pack and adhere it to the left side of your card front. Cut a 2 x 4 inch piece of the “bat” pattern from the DSP pack and a 2-1/4 x 4-1/4 inch piece of basic gray cardstock; adhere these two pieces together (the gray cardstock serves as a matte).  Cut a metallic doily in half and adhere one of the halves to the backside of matted “bats” piece; then adhere the entire piece to your card front be overlapping onto the striped DSP pattern. For the finishing touch, add a little halloween sentiment using your circle punches!

Not into Halloween cards? No problem…you can use this layout  and all of the measurements to create a card for any occasion!  Just change out the pattern paper and the sentiments to create a whole new card like this!

Spooky Fun

Good Morning Stampin’ Friends and Happy Friday!  Today I want to share a fun little Halloween card idea! This card was inspired by an adorable little gift bag in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  I thought the design on the bag would make such a cute little card!

spooky-fun

To make this card, start with a piece of basic black cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of pumpkin pie cardstock and adhere it to the front of your card base. Cut a 2 x 4 inch piece of the polka dot patterned paper from the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack and snip the end into a little banner. Adhere the banner to the card as shown.  Cut out a 2-1/2 inch white circle and adhere it to the card by overlapping onto the banner. Stamp the set of pumpkins and their cute little faces, using black ink, on a scrap piece of pumpkin pie cardstock. Cut out the pumpkins with the coordinating framelit. Take a scrap piece of sahara sand cardstock and cut out the tree image.  Adhere the tree to the white circle using a few glue dots; then add the pumpkins. For the finishing touch, stamp a little halloween sentiment on a scrap piece of green cardstock and punch it out with the classic label.  Enjoy!

Cookie Cutter Halloween

Good Morning Stampin’ Friends! October is right around the corner so it’s time to start sharing some Halloween projects with all of you!  Today I have a quick and simple Halloween card idea for you!  This particular layout is one of my favorite ways to use washi tape!  If you love washi tape, you can use this design to create a card for ANY occasion.  Just use a flower, butterfly or some other type of embellishment  that coordinates with your washi tape and stamp a sentiment on the card to fit the occasion! It’s a super simple and quick card idea!

cookie-cutter-halloween

To make this card, start with a piece of perfect plum cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Grab a few rolls of washi tape; in this case I used the new Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape pack. There are 5 rolls in the pack. Simplly tear off a piece of washi tape long enough to go completely across the white cardstock so you can wrap the ends around to the back. Start with the upper pieces and work your way down. You can run your pieces straight across or on an angle, like on this project. There is no right or wrong way to use it! I left a little bit of white cardstock showing in between each piece of washi tape I applied. Once you have all of your washi tape on the card, stamp a little sentiment as shown. For the finishing touch, I stamped a little Dracula image and colored him in with a few different markers and adhered him to the card with dimensionals. Get out your washi tape and start creating some fun cards!  The possibilities are endless! Enjoy!

Among the Branches

Good Morning!  Last night I held my annual Halloween class.  We made a variety of treat bags and cards in preparation for next week!  This particular card was one of my favorites as it showcases some fun Halloween products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. among the branchesTo make this card, start with a piece of basic gray cardstock for the base of your card. Emboss the front of the card with the Woodland embossing folder. Sponge some gray ink all over the embossed trees to highlight them.  Stamp some of the spooky eyes from the Among the Branches stamp set in between the trees using black ink. Cut a spider web doily in half and adhere it to the right side of your card; trim off the excess that hangs off the card. Grab some of your favorite washi tape and run a few different colors along the bottom of the spider web doily (this will help hold it in place too). You can also use the new Happy Haunting washi tape. Stamp the “spooky” sentiment from the Among the Branches stamp set on a piece of scrap white paper, using pumpkin pie ink, and punch it out with the 2 inch circle punch. Punch out a rich razzleberry 2 3/8 inch scalloped circle and adhere it to the “spooky” circle to matte it out. Adhere the circles to your card with dimensionals. that’s it! Enjoy!

Halloween Project Ideas

It’s October already! Time to get serious about those Halloween projects!  I have been sharing a few of the projects I have been working on but here is what my collection looks like so far!  And there’s still plenty of time to create more!halloweenSince I already shared the instructions for the card and “Boo” gift bag, today I will provide you with some tips for creating the little mini muslin bag. There are so many things you can do to decorate up those little mini muslin bags but one of my favorite things to do is stamp on them!  For this particular project I decided to use some of the cool Halloweenboo to you mini muslin images from the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set. I started by stamping the “Trick or Treat” image in the center of the muslin bag using tangerine tango ink. I actually stamped the image twice to make it darker. It’s pretty easy to align stamped images because this set is a photopolymer so you can see right through the image allowing you to realign it almost perfectly! Next, I randomly stamped some spider and bone images on the muslin bag using black memento ink. For the finishing touch, I embellished the side of the bag with a bit of silver sequins trim, orange twine and a little skull and cross bones created from the Boo To You framelits.  That’s it! The best part is that you get 8 mini muslin bags in each pack! Be creative with it and enjoy!

BOO to you Gift Bag

boo to you gift bagCan you believe the month of October is right around the corner? Geesh! Time just seems to fly by lately, doesn’t it? So I guess I better start sharing some fun little Halloween ideas with all of you! This adorable little project showcases a fun little stamp set and framelit bundle called Howl-o-ween! It’s a simple little project to make so let’s take a closer look.

Start with a little treat bag.  You can pick up treat bags just about anywhere!  I actually have tons of little white bags so I just used those 🙂 But Stampin’ Up! also carries some adorable little polka dot bags (see below). Once you have chosen a bag, run a few pieces of washi tape across the top of the bag, trim off the excess. I used up some retired washi tape but you can also use the new Happy Haunting Washi Tape. Gather up some scrap white cardstock. Stamp the owl image in black, the hat image in black berry bliss and the little pumpkin image in pumpkin pie ink. Grab the coordinating framelits and cut them all out with your big shot (or other embossing machine). Adhere all of the pieces together with a few glue dots. Once you have the witch owl assembled, add a few dimensionals to the back of the images and secure it to your bag as shown. Cut out a little “BOO” using basic black cardstock; adhere to the top of your bag with a few glue dots. For the finishing touch, add a little clip or clothes pin to the top of the bag to keep it closed.  Enjoy!

BOO! Halloween Fun!

halloween boo to you 2015Good Morning!  I thought I would start sharing some fun Halloween ideas with all of you!  Yes, it’s only September but Halloween will be here before you know it!  Today’s project showcases some of the fun new Halloween products from the Holiday Stampin’ Up! catalog.  One of my favorite products is the spider web doily!  I have so many different ideas for using those little doilies…and some of my ideas are not Halloween related. 🙂  Wanna recreate this project? Let’s take a look at what you will need.

Start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of orange patterned paper.  I actually had a few pieces of Halloween papers and washi tape left from last year so I just used that. Of course there is a fun new pack of paper available in this year’s catalog called Happy Haunting. So if you love Halloween papers I highly recommend you check it out! Once you have your patterned paper cut, add a few pieces of washi tape to the top as shown.  Of course you can use the happy haunting washi tape so it coordinates with your patterned paper. Next, adhere one of the spider web doilies to the left side of the paper (wrapping the excess around to the back), and then adhere the entire piece to the front of your card.  Stamp some of the spiders from the Howl-o-ween treat stamp set onto the patterned paper using black ink. Cut a 1 x 3 1/2 inch piece of blackberry bliss cardstock and make a little pennant. Adhere it to the center as shown. Cut out the “BOO” with the Boo to your framelits using silver glimmer paper.  That’s it! Enjoy!
