This bundle includes some simple images that will assure you can create some great projects so that you can have a wonderfully wicked time this year with your family and friends. LOL!

Here are some projects using this set for you today – This first card uses a simple technique of turning down the corner of the card front allowing you a peek of what is inside.

And how about a little sparkle? This die was cut out using our Red Glimmer Paper (150427).

And of course here are some treat items, since what’s Halloween without some treats?

Our Coffin Treat boxes (150451) and Mini Pizza Boxes (144645) and Kraft Pillow Boxes (147018) make this little treats a snap!

And did you know that you can add color to our boxes with a Sponge Brayers (141714) or Stampin’ Spritzers (126185)? It’s quick and easy to do!

So what do you think? Ready for that full moon tonight?

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a Tutorial with you for my September Thank You card.

It’s a Spooktacular Bash!

Halloween is one of those fun days where you can let your imagination carry you away. And Stampin’ Up! has created a wonderful option for creating lots of Halloween goodies.

You’ll want to be sure to check out the Monster Bash Suite – it’s filled with tons of coordinating products including a wonderfully versatile Ornate Frame Die set, Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder, and Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Edge Ribbon that ties beautifully!

Check out these wonderful cards created using the Spectacular Bash Stamp set

Aren’t the Ornate Frames simply wonderful? The Ornate Frames Dies set has 11 frames – and these cards show just a few of them!

And how about the lovely background on these next two cards created with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder?

And these last two cards used the Black Foil Sheets (147898) to punch out the little bats. The cute little bat punch can be found in the Every Season Punch Pack (150670) which contains 4 punches – one for each season. A great value and perfect to add those little touches to your projects.

This last card also uses our Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (150646) which is currently on back order since it’s been sooooo popular – No worries, it will be available to order again towards the end of September.

#imbringingbirthdaysback in September with Gather Together

Ahh… the nip is in the air. Not – at least not for a while yet here in North Georgia. We’re having the hottest September in years. So it is kind of odd to watch all the leaves blowing across my yard when it’s in the 90s. I think mother nature is a bit confused this year.

The start of the school year and football season always makes me think of the fall color and cooler days, so I reached for the Gather Together Bundle to create this month’s birthday card.

What do you think? I used the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper for this card since I thought the texture was a great fit AND I love the fact it is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Promotion this month.

While this set has some lovely sentiments and images,

it didn’t contain a birthday sentiment which I wanted for this project so I reached for the Seaside Notions set since I thought the font was perfect for this card. What do you think? Of course you could use the “Wishing you well” sentiment also.

Check out my video tutorial to see how I made this card.

Want to make some too? Here is a PDF tutorial for you.

Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle

I’m loving these Gift of Fall Add-On Note Cards – the colors are great and the fact that you get 24 cards and envelopes for just $10 is a great deal.

Today’s cards were created with the left overs from my Paper Pumpkin Kit and stamp set.

But I know I can use these with our other products too for more great fall cards when I’ve finished up using my supplies from the kit – And there are a ton of things left, even after these cards.

Here are close ups of each card.

For this first one I stamped the sentiment and then scored the banner twice on each side to create a pop up effect – sooo easy to do!

Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall

This month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with a great stamp set and Merry Merlot Ink Spot – perfect for coloring with. And since I think monochromatic cards are always striking that’s where I started. So today’s card is one that I created simply by adding our Very Vanilla Note Cards, some card stock, and our Blender Pens! It is definitely what I consider #simplestamping which is always a great thing!

This card highlights one of our simple coloring techniques – and Blender Pens are a great tool to add to your supplies. Not only is it versatile it also gives you a lot of bang for your buck, since you’ll get 3 of them in your package. The options are endless, simply reach for your favorite color ink pad! This makes them great for a newer stamper just building their supplies or even a seasoned stamper like me.

Want to see how I created this card? I have shared this easy coloring technique in my video.

And of course here is a complete supply list and measurements all in a handy PDF just for you!

Paper Pumpkin August 2019 Gift of Fall Note Card Tutorial PDF

Want A Splash of Color?

Love color? Here are some more cards I made using the same layout idea. They play with a bit of color from past Paper Pumpkin Ink Spots.

This first card still stamps the branches and sentiment in Merry Merlot but uses the Pretty Peacock and Merry Merlot ink spots to color the berries. And how about this one? This time I used Early Espresso to stamp the branches and added Crushed Curry to the mix along.

What do you think? Monochromatic or color? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like?

Then stop back by when I’ll be sharing what I made with the left over pieces and the Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall Add On Bundle.

Can you believe I’ve got all of this left over to create with?

Toile Christmas Card Tutorial

Today’s card is one that I designed for my Team Retreat Shoe Box Swap and it was inspired by the card in the Holiday Catalog. Just goes to show, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, you can just change it up a bit. This is what we call a CASE, or copy and share everything! lol

Inspiration can come from all places it doesn’t have to be just another card – color and patterns are all around us in our everyday lives. My daughter is always rolling her eyes at me when we are out shopping and I say “look there are flowers done in Terracotta Tile or like her dress years ago Calypso Coral! I love the fact that Stampin’ Up! keeps up with our color trends.

Here is the card – I just love cardinals so this was a set I just HAD to have!

I wanted a bold cardinal so for this project I used our Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends after paying around with the Watercolor Pencils and the Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink. The Disinktive stamp make this so easy to color since the shading is already there for you. You can see just how fast this card was to color with the Blends in my video.

Yes, that right! Another $250 to spend on your favorite Stampin’ Up! products.

Here are the details:

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

Every year Stampin’ Up! offers an amazing all expenses paid Incentive Trip to it’s Demonstrators and their partners. This year it is to Maui. We earn the trip by earning Flex Points. We earn these points by doing certain things all year including our product sales, recruiting new team members, leading our teams, and participating in promotions that Stampin’ Up! runs.

My long-term goal has been to earn one of the Incentive trips for my husband and I. I’ve been working so hard to try and achieve it over the past 5 years. I’m getting closer by the day and wayyy ahead of where I was last year. I would truly love it and it would make it extra special to achieve this trip during my 10th Anniversary year with Stampin’ Up! and every single order you place counts. That’s why I want to reward you in return for helping me!
