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!

September All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

It’s time for the September All Star Tutorial HOLIDAY Bundle blog hop! Don’t forget to order the tutorial with 12 great holiday projects HERE:

We designers also offer a bloghop, showcasing a different project but using the same products we used in the PDF that you can earn or purchase.

I chose the stamp set “Spooky Cats” and came up with this little test tube holder. It is an easel holder type project!

Here are some instructions to help you create this project!

  • Basic Black card stock is 7 3/8″ x 2″ and scored at 2 7/8″, 5 3/8″ and 6 7/8″
  • Another Basic Black card stock piece is 2″ x 2 1/2″ (this is the base of the easel)
  • Designer Series Paper is 4 5/8″ x 2″ and scored at 1 1/2″, 2″, 3 1/4″ and 3 3/4″
  • Fold black card stock on score lines and adhere together as shown above to make the “easel”
  • The triangle part will be adhered to the base of the easel
  • Punch the top of of the Designer Series Paper using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (it’s the side that is at the 1 1/2″ score line)
  • Fold this on score lines as shown below
  • Punch a 3/4″ circle on 2 of the score lines as shown above
  • Adhere this to the front of the easel
  • Cut a 5″ piece of Striped Ribbon
  • Lightly sponge the ribbon using Early Espresso ink – this will change the bright white color in the ribbon to more of a Very Vanilla look and will go well with the Designer Series Paper color
  • Slip the ribbon through the hole at the top and tie with some Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine
  • Stuff some treats in the test tube and slide into the punched circles
  • Stamp the sentiment on to Pumpkin Pie card stock and die cut using the tag from the Seasonal Tags Framelit Dies
  • Tie the tag to the test tube using the Black Vintage Crochet Trim
Be sure and visit Tanja Kolar’s blog for an awesome project!

Cookie Cutter Halloween Birthday Gift

If you know me well, you know I LOVE themed anything! Especially gifts! My sweet friend, Becky Roberts, celebrated a birthday this month. I always have a hard time keeping Halloween out of her birthday because it falls in the fun month of October.

Becky loves office type things, so here’s what I came up with!
watermarked-photo

watermarked-photoYou may recognize the mummy card from a previous post HERE.  I just added some lines behind the mummy using the stamp “Writing Notes” so the card would go with the theme. I also stamped on the envelope and used “Labeler Alphabet” to stamp her name on it.

I picked up the marker board at West Elm. You can also serve food on and write what you are serving on it (cheeses, meats, etc.)

The bag I picked up at Hobby Lobby, then sewed Pool Party and Real Red lines on it. I cut “becky” out with my Silhouette machine and ironed it on the bag. Super fun to make! 🙂 I saw the bag idea on Pinterest HERE.
