Nobody Mourns the Wicked

2013_10_31IMG_3781 I love Wizard of Oz, Wicked and love the Stampin Up Wicked Cool stampset (no longer available) even more.  So imagine my excitement when my sister/ upline taught me how to land the house on the Wicked Witch of the East.  Just used a dauber to create the siding and the grass.  Added a window pane complete with a spooky spider web.

Here’s hoping you have a Wicked Cool Halloween too.

Toil and Trouble Take 2

2013_10_21DSCI04812013_10_21DSCI0482Cammie recently taught a fabulous basic  brayering  class and afterwards I got the bug so we did a private brayered panel class afterwards.  We created many different panels and challenged ourselves to complete the cards later.  For this panel we brayered a spooky sky with a full moon and used the Toil and Trouble stampset #131724 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.

Cammie created 2 similar cards but switched the color scheme and the orientation of the card to give completely different looks.  Great minds think alike… Cammie also created a tombstone with a crow perched on top.  She used an image from the now retired Monster Munchies stampset for the headstone and added punched chevrons using the Chevron  border punch #132154 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.

In case you missed what I did with my Toil and Trouble panel check out yesterdays post.

Toil and Trouble

2013_10_20IMG_4014Cammie recently taught a fabulous basic  brayering  class and afterwards I got the bug so we did a private brayered panel class afterwards.  We created many different panels and challenged ourselves to complete the cards later.  For this panel we brayered a spooky sky with a full moon and used the Toil and Trouble stampset #131724 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog. This is what I did to complete the card.  I made a tombstone from the Apothecary Accents #127003 and added a glittered crow.  The crow is also from the Toil and Trouble set and I used the heat and stick powder #100625 and the ultra fine black glitter # 132206 and then hand cut him out and perched him on top of the headstone. Stay tuned tomorrow to see Cammie’s finished Toil and Trouble cards.

Washi Bows

2013_10_18IMG_3797 Today’s card is one of the cards from my Washi tape workshop.  The card is super simple, I used the Witches Brew Washi tape #132156 to make bows from each of the 3 Halloween washi tape patterns from the Witches Brew collection in the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  When making this card I learned pretty quickly that the stickiness needed to be taken away from the tape so I the embossing buddy #103083 came to the rescue.  I added a sentiment from the Delightful Dozen #122652 stampset to complete the card.

Hybrid Halloween

halloween-001Another Tuesday so that is exciting since Stampin Up adds new digital downloads to their site each Tuesday.  Today’s post is a super quick post of a simple Halloween card that I made using My Digital Studio.  I sent it off to the Stampin Up printing service and will add some “real” elements to the card front to create a Hybrid Halloween card for all my MDS customers.

Be sure to check out the newest downloads for MDS available on the Stampin Up site today

Chevron Sacks

2013_10_05IMG_3816 I made this cute little party favor for my recent washi workshop and filled it with Halloween candy.  I started out by using the chevron Tag a Bag #131370 from the Stampin Up catalog then textured cardstock rectangles and stamped the Halloween Happiness #131859 single stamp from the holiday catalog.  Each layer was secured with none other than a piece of the Witches Brew Washi tape #132156.  This turned out so great and was a fun and inexpensive way to give a treat to someone special that I decided to make some extras to pass out to my special little trick or treaters.

Trick or Treat today?

2013_09_09IMG_3595Yes this is no trick I am giving you a treat by posting 2 posts in one day.  I missed posting yesterday so my treat was to double post today.  How fun that I also made it a trick or treat card.  I used the now retired spider web folder to create the textured background.  I then brushed the whisper white stamp pad across the web to add some fun.  I used the new chevron Background punch from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog to create a border and reveal the pumpkin pie card base.  I added a label using the Chalk Talk stampset #130634 and the coordinating Chalktalk Framelit #129983.  I topped the chalk talk label with a label stamped with the Tags 4 You stampset #132823 and punched it with the coordinating Label Bracket Punch #132153.

Both the Chalk Talk and Tags 4 You stampsets are available in a bundle with the coordinating framelit or punch.  Purchasing them together as a bundle saves 15% Chalk Talk set and Framelit bundle is available in wood #132731 and clear #132730.  The Tags 4 You stamp and punch bundle is also available in wood #133293 and clear #133294.

I Vant You

Here is the 2nd post for Halloween and boy does it scream Halloween and is Fang-tastic.  Cammie made this spooky card for her Halloween cards this year.  She thought it was a simple concept until she had to punch, then shape and stain 12 teeth per card but oh is it worth the effort.  The fangs were punched using the Blossom Builder  #121808 and the Bird Builder #117191 punches from the Stampin Up Annual catalog.  Each tooth was meticulously cut to form the tooth and then stained with cherry cobbler ink.  The I Vant was done in MDS and the U was stamped using the Morning Post Alphabet stamp set #126592.

So we vant you to have a happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! Today is my all time favorite Holiday and so I want to treat you all to 2 posts today.  Yes 2 spectacular punch art cards- Mine and then later today Cammie’s devine Halloween card will be sure to delight you.

But until then I would like to introduce you to Jack.  I love how he turned out and continue to amaze myself with how a simple stamp- free card can have such an impact.  When I created my Jack from punches I  knew this would be my favorite of the bunch until I got Cammie’s Halloween card in the mail.  Stay tuned later today for another post.  I promise it is not a trick!

Bootie Call

By now my friends and family should be receiving their Halloween cards.  I think I get worse every year and send out so many Halloween cards.  This year I mailed 48 cards.  Today’s card is one of my 4 major designs and it features the Bootiful Occasions stamp set #126597 from the Stampin Up Annual Catalog.  When I first saw the Bootiful stampset I knew I had to order and knew I would be using it for Halloween.  I layered the boot on the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet #126999 die.  Background was created with various colors and sizes  of circles to match the polka dots in the boot.
