Stampin’ Up! Lacy Tricks and Tweets for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge – and I suspect you’re going to see a lot of 2018 Holiday Catalog sneak peeks.  So…I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!

I pulled out a cute little stamp set I just HAD to order when I was in California and then never opened and inked!  It’s the adorable Trick or Tweet set and it’s a fun take on Halloween.   I love it with some new Toil & Trouble DSP and a little boost from the Spooky Sweets set.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch!

I started with some Granny Apple Green (is this not just the BEST green!?!) paper from the new Toil & Trouble DSP, matted on Basci Black for the card front.

Then I took a smaller panel of Basic Black and cut the edge with the wonderful Delicate Lace Edgelits.

I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White and, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamped the so-cute elephant from the Trick or Tweet set.  And she needed to be holding a jack-o-lantern snack bucket, too.  So I added that as well!

I used my new Light and Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends (these are in the 2018 Holiday Catalog) to color her.  I also used both of my Pumpkin Pie Blends for the snack bucket. And she’s rocking Granny Apple Green wings, a mask and…in a surfeit of accessorizing coordination – Granny Apple Green toenails! 🙂  I just love that we’re getting more and more fun colors in the Stampin’ Blends, don’t you?? 🙂

I pulled out the Spooky Sweets stamp set (also in the new Holiday Catalog – coming live to you next week!) and added some spooky Granny Apple Green “mist” with the splatter stamp.  I inked the stamp and stamped-if-off-once before I stamped the panel each time.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the die cut Basic Black panel and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Trick or Tweet, is stamped in Tuxedo Black on Granny Apple Green card stock and punched with the Classic Label Punch.  It’s adhered with Liquid Glue.

I used my Bow Easy to tie a double-loop bow from the new Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I colored some Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend and added them to finish off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment – this one from the Spooky Sweets set – in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  Around the edges, I added stamped-off-once “mist” in Granny Apple Green.  Then I added some full-strength “mist”, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Spooky Sweets mist in both stamped-off-once and full-strength Granny Apple Green on the front…

…and on the back, I added a veritable miasma of mist – and some more of the Toil & Trouble DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Look at that face!  Pretty hard to be too awfully scared of her – or any of her friends in the Trick or Tweet stamp set, isn’t it?  And the Spooky Sweets bundle – with it’s scary Spooky Bats Punch – is a lot of fun, too!  I hope you like!

  1. Your card is too cute! I think I need to look into the “Bow Easy”…don’t remember ever hearing about it. What a beautiful bow…love that ribbon. I already know I need to order the edgelits dies.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – it’s a great set of dies, for sure! And the Bow Easy…there’s a learning curve, but…it’s pretty awesome once you start to figure it out. And this ribbon is very forgiving! 🙂

    This is really cute and very appealing…..I wouldn’t call your “mist” miasma….it isn’t unpleasant at all!
