Simple Halloween

2014_10_25IMG_5616 Today’s post is a super quick and easy Halloween card using old DSP and new Halloween stamp set.  I initially bought the Mingle all the Way #135773 stamp set from the Stampin Up holiday catalog for the sentiments to use on the inside of my Halloween cards but opted to make the sentiment on the outside.

Tap Tap Tap It’s a Birthday

2014_10_24IMG_5336 A BIG birthday shout out to our friend Sherry Rider and today’s card is Cammie’s birthday card to her.  The card I made Sherry I have to keep under wraps because I made the same card for another friend with a December birthday and don’t want to spoil her surprise.

Anyway, This is a fun card that Cammie made featuring the oh so fun Stampin Up stamp set called Tap Tap Tap #134201. Cammie used the new Dots and Stripes decorative masks #133755, daubers and ink to create the bright orange dot background.  She added the alphabet from the Tap Tap Tap set.  For the focal point Cammie created mats using the Circle #130911 and Starburst #132967 Framelits and added a splash of red color (Sherry’s favorite color) using the Work of Art Stamp set #134114 before adding the Tap Tap Tap typewriter and the birthday sentiment. She added  a piece of the striped Chevron ribbon #130010 to complete a fun and eclectic birthday card.

Sweet Treats in a bag

2014_10_23IMG_5602 Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for all things Halloween and I love the Stampin Up My Paper Pumpkin kits that come each month.  Today’s post is how I used the September Boo-tiful Bags kit.  It was fabulous everything I needed except scissors and the candy to fill the bags was included in the kit so I was able to make 6 treat bags in a snap.  The best part is I have left over stickers and tags and want to make a few cute cards for Halloween.

Fall Pear Tree

2014_10_22IMG_5600 I have been dying to use this cute Stampin Up stamp set, Partridge & Pears #133857 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.   I needed a “fallish” card so I just decided to use retired fall DSP and the partridge in a pear tree with fall colors from the Stampin Up blendabilities.  The stampset is intended for a Christmas card because of the sentiments that come with the set.  I skipped the sentiments and added a fall sentiment from the For All Things #135155 and voila I have a very “fallish” card.  Yay!

Lucky Stars Ensemble

2014_10_21IMG_5036 I can thank my lucky stars that my son understands the power of a handmade card.  In fact before heading off to college he wanted some cards to have on hand in case he got a care package or happy mail (defined as a card with something inside).  He has always been trained to write a thank you note so I was glad to create a set of cards for him to have in his dorm in hopes that he will use them when the appropriate time comes.

These cards were created using the left overs from my July  paper pumpkin kit and blackberry bliss cardstock and in.

Frankly Speaking

2014_10_20IMG_4021  Frankly speaking I think today’s card is one of my favorite Halloween cards of the season.  As an added bonus it is super easy to re-create using the Stampin Up Circle Card Thinlits die #133480 and various sizes of circle punches. Frankie’s hair was styled using the Fringe Scissors #133325. I used the Stampin Up Project Life jounaling pens #135304 to add the details to make Frankenstein come to life.
