#simplestamping with Bon Appetit

If you sometimes find the options over whelming when you sit down to create a card, simple stamping just might the thing to recharge your creativity. Today’s project was created using card stock, ink, and a couple of punches. It also uses the stamp set from our September Paper Pumpkin Kit. Which is perfect for simple stamping. Check out this cute little note card for Halloween. Perfect for mailing or tucking in with a little treat.

These little skeletons are simply stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and I used the Gorgeous Grape spot that came in the kit for the sentiment and sponging. Want to see how I made it? I’ve got a video today for you. (I know it’s a day later than planned, but I wanted to share my big news with you yesterday – a perfect way to start the new year!)

I love these little folding boxes that I shared with you the other day – so this time I’ve created one using the Trick or Tweet stamp set. After all we need to scare up some chocolate, right? And I couldn’t resist this little guy – he just makes me smile.

When you open up the lid and you’ll get a Halloween greeting and

Chocolate of course, (although you could put all kinds of things inside since it’s a pretty roomy box  if your guys don’t love chocolate.) I found these Russel Stover Carmel Brownie pumpkins at my local Ingles and couldn’t resist pickup up a few as gifts family.

(Sorry I think my photos are a bit off, it’s another rainy day here in Georgia which doesn’t my photo I hoping it’s just my screen.)

Trick or Tweet Treat Box

I love to make little treat items for family and friends and so when I saw the Trick or Tweets stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I knew it would be perfect for this year’s Halloween treats.

Check out this cute little box I made using the set

My fellow stamper, Pam gave this cute little box idea last spring and so I wanted to give it a try myself. Turns out these little boxes are sooooo easy to make, that they are kind of addictive once you get going.

Or at least I couldn’t stop – LOL!  The images and color combinations were just a lot of fun to play with once I got coloring with my Stampin’ Blends.

I thought you might like to try some too for your treats so I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial.

Spooky Treats

It’s almost fall and that means Halloween is right around the corner – If you love Halloween you’ll want to check out this fun card using the Spooky Treats & Winter Woods stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog.

This card uses simple sponging and masking to create a wonderfully spooky fall night!

How is it done? First you’ll create a mask using one of the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and a sticky note. Place the sticky note where you’d like it on your Whisper White card stock. Then sponge starting with the lightest color Crushed Curry in a circular motion to begin building the layers of color. Add some Pumpkin Pie and then finish with Blackberry Bliss. Remove the mask and you’re ready to finish stamping.

Yep, it’s that easy. Each time you’ll get a little different look based on your sponging which makes it a lot of fun.

And if you love this punch you’ll love this tip that Sara shared with us yesterday.

The Spooky Bat Punch (148014) cuts out the bats from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (147531) bat images! How cool is that?

You’re going to LOVE all the fantastic products in the Holiday Catalog! Why not come to my Holiday Catalog Kick Off and check them out? But hurry and RSVP by the end of the day September 12th so I’ll have enough goodies for everyone!
