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 Keurig Coffee Maker Tutorial


You all know I have a slight addiction to coffee! This is one of my all time favorite projects – it’s a paper Keurig Machine! The mini coffee cup nestles inside it nicely. You can add your favorite treat in there. In the back of the Keurig is a little pouch to house a Starbucks card!

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
