Trick or Tweet CASE From Catalog

One thing I LOVE about the Stampin’ Up catalogs is the cards and projects that are showcased there! I get so inspired by their concept artists! Take this card, for example. I just switched up the idea in the catalog (shown below) and turned it into a card. Once again, the Trick or Tweet stamp set is one of my favorites!


Halloween Projects – More From Cozy Craft Retreat!

Winding down my Cozy Craft Retreat projects….. this one is our new thinlit dies, Takeout Treats. I paired this with Trick or Tweet stamp set! There is a cute little spider charm, also available from our holiday Stampin’ Up catalog! (see link on my sidebar to the right!) I tied the bow with muslin fabric. The gals enjoyed this little treat project!

I was inspired by Jacquelyn Williams on the cruise with her cute little Frankenstein treat box, here’s my version!

Halloween Project

I still have more retreat photos for you, but taking a quick break from them to post a Halloween project or two! SOON it will be Oct. and I need to post Halloween ideas before it’s too late!

My favorite stamp set for the Halloween season was Trick or Tweet. The cutest little animals are in this set!

If you know me well, you know I have a fetish for candy corn – not necessarily to EAT them (although they are YUMMY with peanuts), but the decorate and use the color scheme with! Seems every year some how I incorporate the 3 candy corn colors in a card. Here’s this year’s version!

The little sign is hard to see, here’s a better version of the laminated sign I made. THANKS Jennie Portonova for sending this cartoon to me! She knows I get a kick out of candy corn things!

The witch feet are from Michael’s Craft Store.

Halloween Card

Here’s a Halloween card, I didn’t have to do much because of this beautiful Designer Series Paper! The tree and moon are already printed on the paper!

I added an extra branch die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies to give a 3-D effect. Don’t forget, when you use photopolymer stamps, you need to use a Stampin’ Pierce Mat underneath the cardstock to get a better stamped image! It needs that little extra “cush-layer” that photopolymer stamps don’t have!

Here’s the recipe for the card:

Spooky Cat Card and Fun Halloween Activities with Stella!

Here’s another card using the Spooky Cat bundle! It’s not too late to get this stamp set, punch and paper!

  • The Basic Black and Very Vanilla cardstock both have been embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.
  • Larger square is 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
  • Smaller square is 1 5/8″ x 1 5/8″
  • Cat eyes are black rhinestone jewels
  • This is a great layout to use for any season! I love how it showcases the Designer Series Paper!
  • Recipe at the end of post.

I love baking with my grandkids. Here’s Stella and I making some spider cookies! They are just peanut butter cookies with Reeses peanut butter cups in the middle! Because the cookie is hot out of the oven, it will melt it a bit and it will look smooth. They were so much fun!

We also made a skeleton out of Qtips! Thanks, Pinterest, for the idea!

Halloween Treat PLUS Cozy Craft Retreat Video!

Here’s a treat for Halloween! This was designed by fellow weSTAMPER, Jennie Portonova for our team meeting last month! Super simple to make, just stamp, cut out, and use an Xacto knife to make some slits! ENJOY!
