Halloween

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together a Monster Bash for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Halloween Fun!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to do a Fall-ish Halloween card – sort of “serious” and sort of “fun”.  So…I pulled out the Gather Together and Spooktacular Bash Bundles – plus some Monster Bash DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is courtesy of the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with some Crushed Curry paper from the Monster Bash DSP that I matted on Cajun Craze for the card front.

With the Gathered Leaves Dies from the Gather Together Bundle, I cut several leaves from Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Tip:  use a Stampin’ Spritzer to dampen the card stock before cutting the leaves.  The dies will be able to do their embossing much better that way.  And – when you take the cut and embossed leaves out of the dies, you can gently curl them with your fingers!  Perfect Fall leaves!

I used the Gather Together stamps to stamp the two pumpkin images in Cajun Craze on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Then I fussy cut them (versus using the dies because I wanted no-border pumpkins!).  I colored them with my Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie and Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.

For the little ghouls – I just fussy cut a couple of likely spook-ies from the Monster Bash DSP.

Using Liquid Glue, I built up the collage with leaves, pumpkins and ghoulies!

I stamped the Spooktacular Bash sentiment in Cajun Craze on Whisper White and cut it with an Ornate Frames Die.  Then I popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used two lengths of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack to tie a simple bow, which I adhered with a dab of Liquid Glue.  A few Pumpkin Pie rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second Spooktacular Bash sentiment in Cajun Craze on Whisper White.  I stuck a Pumpkin Pie Rhinestone next to the sentiment.  I also added a few pumpkins from Gather Together in Cajun Craze – coloring them with the Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze panel 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 Gather Together pumpkins on the front…

…and more of the Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This particular Monster Bash DSP – and those little ghoulies – look like something Mr. Disney would put in the Haunted Mansion, don’t you think?  And I can just see them in the courtyard outside the ride, surrounded by Fall-inspired Gathered Leaves and Gather Together pumpkins!  With the addition of the Spooktacular Bash sentiments…we’ve got a fun Fall scene for Halloween!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Amy’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsake Sneak Peek Across the Seasons!

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Sunday!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – but would like to watch the replay – here ’tis!

I showed off several projects last night that have a common denominator…the brand new Mini Curvy Keepsake Die and bundled Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set – both coming soon in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Take a look-see:

On the video, we made the Come To Gather box…

…and the Snowman box…

I just showed the others!

The first is a Halloween box – using the Monster Bash DSP cut with the Mini Curvy Keepsake die – with a Spooktacular Bash tag!  You can see how to make this tag on the video, too! 🙂

Then we had one for a birthday – with a masculine bent!  I used the Come Sail Away DSP, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine, Sail Away Trinkets and a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set on this one.  The sentiment was cut with an Ornate Frames die (coming soon in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  Y’all – this die set is SO handy to have!

Finally – I shared a little box that would be perfect for Mother’s Day, a Red Hat luncheon, Baby/Bridal Shower, church gathering – and probably tons more!  It uses the new Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP, the Leaf Punch, some flowers from the Lovely Flowers Die set, a sentiment from Piece of Cake, some Noble Peacock Rhinestones – and the heart label die from the Tiny Keepsake stamp set.

So – I hope you can see that this wonderful little Mini Curvy Keepsake Die is an awesome jumping off point for tons and gobs and oodles of fun projects!  And each box takes just one 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP or card stock, with no adhesive required for the box.  Make the box lickety-split and then…decorate to your heart’s content!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Spooktacular Boo To You Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Big day ahead for us Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  Yep – this is the day we can start getting registered for the November OnStage!  That’s one of two events we have each year where we get together to see old (and new!) friends, get a look at the next catalog (in this case – the 2020 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs), and …. get free goodies!  All in all – it’s a ton of fun and something we all look forward to attending (and is a HUGE benefit of being a demonstrator!!  This time, we’ve got one of the Local events right here in Atlanta!  Whoo-hooo!!!

But – before that happens, we’re all going to have a chance to play with some truly awesome goodies from the wunnermus 2019 Holiday Catalog – starting on 4 Sept!  The card I have for you today is another little Sneak Peek – this time from the Spooktacular Bash suite!  I used the Boo To You stamp set, some Monster Bash DSP and a little spider from the Wicked Dies to make a Halloween card!  Take a look-see:

Check out those goo-goo-googly eyes!! How fun are they?  🙂

The layout for this one is from the As You See It challenge…

And the color scheme is from the TGIF color challenge.

I started with two fun papers from the Monster Bash DSP – cobwebs above a bookshelf.  That seems pretty realistic to me! 😉  I matted the two pieces onto a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue to make the card front.

Then I wrapped some new Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim around the seam – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Whisper White circle with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die and stamped the adorably frightful….uhm….Horn Monster?…on it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored it (him?  her?) with my Light and Dark Highland Heather and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I also used a Terracotta Tile (horn dots) and Crushed Curry (teeth and toe-nails) Stampin’ Write Marker, too.  Then I popped him onto the card front with BLACK Stampin’ Dimensionals (these are brand new in the 2019 Holiday Catty – and you get regular and mini dimensionals in the pack!).  Be still my beating heart!! 😉

The sentiment – also from Boo To You – is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut with one of the many (many!!) awesome frame dies in the new Ornate Frames Dies (this is bundled with the Spooktacular Bash stamp set for a not-scary 10% savings!).  I edged it with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a black dimensional.

I stamped the “Boo” from the second sentiment stamp in Boo To You three times in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White – then fussy cut them and edged them in Basic Black.  I adhered them ever-so-spookily around the spider webs with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Wicked Dies and cut 3 really cute little spiders from Basic Black and popped them all onto the card front with….BLACK Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final – and most perfect touch of all! – is two perfect Googly Eyes in Granny Apple Green, adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set in Highland Heather on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it is a Boo To You zombie-dude in Tuxedo Black.  He’s colored with Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  His trousers are Terracotta Tile.  And then – a couple more Googly Eyes!!  Adding another little Wicked spider just seemed like the right thing to do!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into a Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with BLACK Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got another zombie dude….

…and some more spider-webby Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Okay, you guys – I really love the Halloween offerings in this Holiday Catalog!  I think the characters in Boo To You are so cute it’s ridiculous – and the Assorted Googly Eyes just make them POP!!  Add in the Spooktacular Bash and matching Ornate Frames Dies, some Monster Bash DSP and an assist frrom the Wonderfully Wicked bundle – and….you’ve got the makings of a Spooky Good Time this Halloween!  I hope you like!

If these look fun – I’d urge you to take a look at my Special Bundle #5 – the Wicked Good Fun Bundle!

You’ll even get the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder for free!

You can get all the deets and get signed up for this – and/or any of my Special Bundles right here!

Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Trick or Treat for Halloween

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Hawwmp Day!!  I hope you had fun with the 30th Birthday sale yesterday.  It was a good ‘un, huh?

My Ordering Bonus is still going on – so there’s time to gather up some supplies to help with the upcoming Holiday season!  Read on down for the all the details and get in on it before it goes away on the 28th!

It’s just a…special kind of week, eh?? 🙂

My card today is quick and easy-peasy for Halloween!  It started with some Toil & Trouble DSP and then pulled some elements from the Takeout Treats bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Making Every Day Bright for Halloween!

Hey guys – Happy Tuesday!

Hope y’all took advantage of the new goodies in the Clearance Rack – not least of which is a short-supply of Fast Fuse Adhesive (and refills!).  If you did NOT – I suggest you head over and take a look-see at the new items before your faves are gone!  Here’s a handy-dandy link.

I’m a helper that way! You’re welcome. 😉

So – you guys probably know me by my Stampin’ Up! name:  the Queen of Clean.

ROFL!!!  HA HA HA!

CAS is SO not my thing!

Except for today.

TODAY – it’s my thang.

Do whatcha gotta do…

Sorry…

I pulled out the cute little Making Every Day Bright stamp set which, OBTW – just so happens to coordinate with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch that you can get bundled with the Making Christmas Bright stamp set.  So – buy that bundle.  Buy this set.  And make this!  Take a look-see:

Okay – to be fair, to make this you’ll also need a sentiment stamp set – I picked Itty Bitty Greetings!

This one is quick so…buckle-up, Buttercup!

I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock and, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamped the “cord” image from Making Every Day Bright twice.

I pulled out my Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie ink pads and stamped the solid lightbulb image in alternating colors.  I also stamped a Mango Melody bulb on a separate piece of Whisper White.

Going back for my Tuxedo Black, I stamped the sweetly-spooky little spider and web on that Mango Melody bulb and cut it out with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

Also with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, I cut out “bulb tops” from some Black Foil, which I stuck onto the top of each bulb with little dabs of Liquid Glue.  I trimmed the excess off the edges and matted the panel on Mango Melody.

I popped my spider-stamped bulb on top to the “cord” with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Then I tied a bow from the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it to the top of my spider-bulb with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Itty Bitty Greetings sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, added a clear Epoxy Droplet and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a little more of the Making Every Day Bright light strand across a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to mat the panel on Mango Melody and then into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Making Every Day Bright lights…

….and I added a few more onto the envelope flap.  Cuz why WOULDN’T I?!?  🙂

Et Voila!  I TOLD you it was quick and easy.  And even I – the so-not-the-Queen-of-Clean, love this card!  The simple color scheme is very appealing, don’t you think?  I love this Making Every Day Bright stamp set – it’s got so many possibilities!  I hope you like!

FAST FUSE ADDED TO CLEARANCE RACK (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST)

Fast Fuse Adhesive

If you’re like us, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . . because we had already retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out to us because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. We took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.

One of the reasons SU! decided to buy this product was because of feedback they received letting them know that some of you still wanted to purchase Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and this was the perfect opportunity to make it available once again through the Clearance Rack. Fast Fuse refills will be available to you for more than 50% off their original price! Because supplies are limited, you should go right to the online store to place your order instead of waiting to place a workshop order.  These’ll go fast, y’all!

See what I did there?  You’re welcome.

Finn Fan Fix

A week or so ago, I made a fun Halloween card using what I think is one of the cutest images ever!

I really just LOVE that little ghost!

Well – when I was done with the card and went to tidy up…the little ghost had ghosted me!

He was flat gone!

I looked high.

I looked low,

I scoured the waste bins at my desk.

I got on my hands and knees.

I looked suspiciously over at The Man.

Yes – I truly thought he’d absconded with my little ghost.

After a day or two went by, I resigned myself to having an incomplete stamp set.

And I was seriously bummed.  I hate losing stuff – and I hate incomplete sets of stamps.  Or dies.

I mean – do you buy another set?  Oh the decisions.

A couple days ago, I was making another card and needed my Watercolor Pencils.

The box came off the shelf and…

I feel sorta bad for doubting the Man.

Oh wait – no I don’t.  We all know it’s more a matter of “when” not “If” he really DOES do some absconding!

It’s just what they do!

Stampin’ Up! Baker’s Boxes for Fall and Halloween!

Hey y’all!  Welcome to Monday – and the work week.

What a downer-way to start a blog post, huh?  Sorry! 🙁

Let me give you a more-fun bit of news!  Stampin’ Up! let us know there’s been a big refresh in the Clearance Rack – so be sure to check it out.  AND – Fast Fuse is AVAILABLE while supplies last at a huge DISCOUNT!!  Don’t wait if you need Fast Fuse – check it out below and get it while it lasts!

So – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks.  I hope you had a good time – it was sort of fun designing on the fly as a group, wasn’t it?  If you didn’t get to watch, but would like to see the fun after-the-fact, here’s the Memorex on YouTube!

The sneak peek I gave you yesterday was a Baker’s Box that I’d colored using Stampin’ Spritzers and Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Refills.  The video shows how I did that!

For the sample box, I used the cool Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF and the new Country Home bundle to decorate it after I was thru coloring it.  Take a look-see:

On last night’s video, we decorated our colored box using elements from the Cauldron Bubble Bundle!

The video explains the coloring process – so take a quick gander at that!

Decorating the sides of the boxes was the same for each design.  In both cases, I matted either an embossed card stock panel or a piece of the Toil & Trouble DSP on a color coordinating mat and then adhered them to the sides with Liquid Glue.  On the front panel, I punched a half-circle with my 3/4″ Circle Punch.

 

From there, it was a matter of “frosting the cake”!  Each box started with some Chicken Wire Elements, snipped down and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut several images from the Toil & Trouble DSP using their dies in the Cauldron Framelits to decorate the Halloween Box – as well as two spider webs from Black Foil.  I also punched a Black Foil bat with the Spooky Bats punch!

The sides of the Fall box are Crumb Cake card stock, embossed in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF, then lightly sponged with Soft Suede ink.  The sentiment banner is an image from the Country Home stamp set, stamped on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso.  I colored the cotton balls with my White Watercolor Pencil and snipped a banner end.

I stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze on a thinner strip of Crumb Cake and bannerized it, too.  Then I adhered it to the larger banner with a little Liquid Glue and slid a Galvanized Clip on the left end.

I wrapped some 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the box and tied a knot on the top.  Then I added a Linen Thread Billie-bow and a second “regular” bow with the Braided Trim.  Then I slid the sentiment banner under the bow and secured it in place with a Glue Dot under the Galvanzied Clip.

And that was it, folks!  These new Baker’s Boxes are perfectly sized for a deluxe donut or a few gourmet cookies.  Or…candy!  Or…whatever!  And you can just decorate them to your heart’s content!  Fall – with the Country Home Bundle – would be perfect!  And Halloween is almost here!  Cauldron Bubble and a little Toil & Trouble make super fun treat boxes!  Hope you like!

TTFN

Finn Fan Fix

On Sunday, I was walking from the bedroom back to the kitchen.

And I noticed Finn.

Sleeping.

Finn sleeping is not unusual.

This, though.

THIS…

These are just things that make you scratch your head and think…wait…what?!?
