Stampin’ Up! Halloween Treat to Wish You a Happy Halloween!

Hey, y’all – it’s Monday again – and Finn and I were both tired yesterday!  I did something to my neck last week and it sort of went crazy yesterday.  Better this morning, thank goodness!

Finn was…well, let’s just say…sort of down for the count yesterday.  While on most days he comes in from feeding the horses, eats his breakfast and then checks in with Dad to see if it’s time to go to work, on Sunday he…well….a picture’s worth a thousand words.  I call this picture “The Day After”.

finn-the-day-after
He spent about 20 minutes just like that – the only movement was the chasing of dream chipmunks!  And some fluffing of flews….

It took me a long time to get the right meds and ice pack combo to reduce my neck pain to a dull roar, so it was much later in the day than I’d planned to make my card for today!  I’d been sort of designing in my head all day, but around 2 in the afternoon I had a bit of a “duh” moment!  My planned card was a Christmas theme.  And then I realized…uhm, doofus, it’s coming out on Halloween!  A Christmas card on Halloween might be kind of – odd?  So…I modified my design for Halloween, using the fun Halloween Treat a la carte stamp and some Halloween Night DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Chevron Jar of Haunts

Good morning!  We’re half way thru the weekend and I have a tired puppy!

We had our playdate with his Aunt Scout and Aunt Maggie yesterday.

finn-scout-and-maggie
Maggie’s the non-Aussie there in the middle.  She was the calming influence.  Scout and Finn….not calm.  At least not at first.  They ran and ran and chased a bumper and rolled each other around in the grass.  There was a lot of body blocking going on.  Scout outweighs Finn by a bit right now – she won’t for long! – so he did a lot of the rolling!  Give him a minute, though, and he’ll be giving as good as he gets!

They finally had to take a break.

finn-in-the-water
Apparently his feet were hot! 🙂

By the end of the playdate, we were able to get them to hold still together.  Check this.

finn-and-scout
That’s Scout on the left.  Don’t they look practically like twins? 🙂

We had such a good time – it was a gorgeous day and a lot of fun.  I hope – and I know Finn does, too – that we’ll be doing that on a regular basis!

When we got home, the puppy crashed.   Hard.  For about an hour.  During which time, I made y’all a card!  This one used the Jar of Haunts stamp set and some Brights Designer Paper.  Take a look-see:

chevron-jar-of-haunts-4-stamps-n-lingers
My layout was inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Challenge #259:

fms-259-sketch
And I used the inspiration photo from The Card Concept challenge #60:

tcc-60-sketch
I made the chevron card front by cutting strips of Old Olive paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper stack.  Each strip is one inch wide.  I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to my card front size of 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ and then used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the strips to the panel.  I left a slight gap between each strip to mimic the ribs in the pumpkin.  I have no idea what the gap is – I used the highly scientific TLAR method.  TLAR – That Looks About Right.  Y’all need to add that technique to your kitbag if you haven’t already! 🙂

Once all the strips were in place, I trimmed the excess and then SNAILd the panel to a Crushed Curry mat.

chevron-jar-of-haunts-2-stamps-n-lingers
My horizontal elements are made from 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and Kraft Rope Trim.  I used Liquid Glue to add the three pieces to the card front.

For my art and sentiment, I went to the Jar of Haunts stamp set.  I stamped the wonderful pumpkin image in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock, and added the stem in Soft Suede.  Using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to pick up ink from the ink pad lids, I colored the pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie, the stem in Soft Suede and the leaf in Old Olive.  Then I cut the pumpkin using a circle die from the Circles Layering Framelits die set.

chevron-jar-of-haunts-3-stamps-n-lingers
The sentiment, also from Jar of Haunts, is stamped in Cajun Craze.  I adhered the sentiment circle to a Crushed Curry scalloped circle mat and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the Kraft Rope Trim.  And that was it for the card front!

chevron-jar-of-haunts-1-stamps-n-lingers
On the inside, I used another couple of strips – thinner this time – of the Old Olive Designer Series Paper and adhered them (with that TLAR gap again!) to a Whisper White panel.

chevron-jar-of-haunts-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added another of the Jar of Haunts pumpkins…

chevron-jar-of-haunts-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and used some Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper to cover the envelope flap (yes, I ran out of Old Olive paper!).

chevron-jar-of-haunts-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  I think I captured the chevrons and the pumpkin theme of the concept card – and I kind of like how my card front turned out.  Of course the Jar of Haunts pumpkin remains one of my very favorite pumpkin images!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Spooky Halloween Treat!

Good Tuesday!  Hope you’re having a good week so far!

So…y’all know the problem with having a new puppy?  Yep.  That’s all you want to do – play with the puppy, pet the puppy, watch the puppy, take the puppy for walks, laugh at the puppy playing, kiss the puppy nose, yada yada yada.  Makes it extremely hard to do anything else – there just isn’t time! 🙂

Finn – yes, we settled on that, and even used that name at the vet today.  Went to get some flea medicine.  Found out my little puppy weighs 34 pounds!  At 4 months!  I think we settled on Finn too quickly – maybe needs to be Bruno.  Bruiser.  Rocky Balboa.  The Rock!  He’s gonna be huge!

But, for now…he maintains his puppy cute…

img_2831
That’s his new favorite spot – curled right up against the water dish – usually with his ear draped over the edge.  Makes it easy to get a little slurp whenever the mood strikes, doncha know? 🙂

So, in between puppy lovin’s today, I made y’all a quick Halloween card!  This one is one layer.  Almost literally!  Totally a one-postage-stamp card for sure!  It uses the a la carte stamp called Halloween Treat and some pumpkins from Spooky Fun.  Take a look-see:

spooky-halloween-treat-4-stamps-n-lingers
This one works with the Global Design Project challenge #058:

gdp-058-sketch
For the card front, I stamped my design directly to the front of my Crumb Cake card base.  Using the trio-of-pumpkins image from Spooky Fun, I stamped it across the panel in Pumpkin Pie ink.

I colored the pumpkins using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, picking ink up from the lid of my stamp pads.  I colored the middle pumpkin in Calypso Coral, the one on the left (as you look at the card) in Pumpkin Pie, and the other one in Tangerine Tango.  Then I colored the stems in Old Olive with my Stampin’ Write Marker.  For fun, I added faces to a few of the pumpkins, using the images from Spooky Fun, stamping them in Basic Black Archival Ink.

spooky-halloween-treat-2-stamps-n-lingers
For the center art, I used a plain piece of Crumb Cake, and stamped the Halloween Treat image in Early Espresso ink.  I lightly colored the pumpkins with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.  I SNAILd the panel directly to the card front and then adhered two strips of Halloween Night Washi Tape across the top and bottom of the panel.

spooky-halloween-treat-3-stamps-n-lingers
I added a little bow, tied with two strands of Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black Baker’s Twine from the Halloween Night Baker’s Twine combo.  I adhered it with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I repeated the Spooky Fun trio of pumpkins, stamping them in Pumpkin Pie and coloring them with the Wink brush, using Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Tangerine Tango.  I finished the stems with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker, and added Spooky Fun faces in Basic Black Archival Ink.

spooky-halloween-treat-5-stamps-n-lingers
And that was it!  Told ya!

My Crumb Cake Medium Envelope got pumpkins on the front…

spooky-halloween-treat-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and on the back flap!

spooky-halloween-treat-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  This is a perfectly simple little card – easy to make and easy to mail!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ghoulishly Spooky Halloween Fun!

Happy Sunday, y’all!  When you read this – I should be on the road.  On my way to get my surprise!

Are you ready to know what it is?  Actually “it” is a “he”!

Here he is!

puppy-1
This is…well, his name is TBD.  I have a few choices in my head and am hoping he’ll tell me what the right name is when I meet him!  He’s not a rescue – don’t judge me, please, I’m doing enough of that myself! – but…he’s from the same parents as my friend’s Aussie – and she’s a wonderful girl.  So, when he became available, I kind of jumped on him!

Life as we know it now is fixin’ to have a huge upheaval!  It’s been a while since we’ve had a dog in the house and even longer since we had a puppy!  And if I think my life is going to be different, I have a couple of kitties that I’m afraid are in for a bit of a shock when we get home.  Hopefully they’ll forgive me… 🙂

So there it is – the big surprise!  As I hinted, nothing to do with card making!  But, I did make a card for you today.  A Halloween card!  I used the  Spooky Fun stamp set and the matching Halloween Scenes Edgelits, and added in some texture from Ghoulish Grunge.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Spooky Halloween Cookie Cutter Mummy

Happy Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve had a good week – I have!  I have some exciting news (well, it is for me, at least!) but I’m going to wait to share it on Sunday!

What could it be….what could it be!?  You’ll just have to check back on Sunday!  🙂

My card today is a quick one to make – it really leans heavily on Halloween Night Designer Paper and the fun Cookie Cutter Builder punch.  I used the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and a sentiment from Spooky Fun.  Take a look-see:

spooky-halloween-cookie-cutter-mummy-4-stamps-n-lingers
My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #258:

fms-258-sketch
And my color palette is from The Paper Players #316:

pp316-sketch
I started by SNAILing a piece of Halloween Night DSP to a Wild Wasabi mat for the card front.  Then I did a second, smaller panel with a different design, and SNAILd it to the first panel.  The top panel is a piece of Whisper White card stock, that I embossed in the Brick Wall TIEF, matted on Wild Wasabi and SNAILd it to the card front.

spooky-halloween-cookie-cutter-mummy-2-stamps-n-lingers
I used yet another design of the Halloween Night paper to make the vertical banner strip.  I used my Paper Snips to cut the banner ends on the DSP and the Wild Wasabi mat and used some Liquid Glue to adhere them together and then to the Brick Wall-Embossed panel.  

The sentiment, from the Spooky Fun set, is stamped in Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White and matted on Wild Wasabi (can you see a Wild Wasabi trend here??).  Then I popped it over the other panels with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

spooky-halloween-cookie-cutter-mummy-3-stamps-n-lingers
My Cookie Cutter Halloween Mummy is stamped in Wild Wasabi on Whisper White.  Then I used a Blender Pen to add some more Wild Wasabi ink to shade his mummy wrappings.  I also added just a touch of Crumb Cake to “age” it a bit.  Then I punched him out with the matching Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and used some Liquid Glue to adhere him – sliding him under my popped-up sentiment.

The last piece is the bats.  I stamped them – they’re in the Cookie Cutter Halloween set – in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White.  Then I fussy cut them – yes, a little persnickety.  I adhered one to the end of the sentiment banner with Liquid Glue and the other two I popped on with little pieces of Stampin’ Dimensional.

Little.  Tiny.  Pieces!

And that was it for the card front.

spooky-halloween-cookie-cutter-mummy-1-stamps-n-lingers
On the inside, I stamped a few more Spooky Fun bats in Basic Black Archival Ink on a Whisper White panel.

spooky-halloween-cookie-cutter-mummy-5-stamps-n-lingers
Then I SNAILd the panel to a Wild Wasabi mat and into a Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Spooky Fun bats on the front…

spooky-halloween-cookie-cutter-mummy-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and some of the black Halloween Night DSP to the envelope flap.

spooky-halloween-cookie-cutter-mummy-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  Easy peasy!  I wasn’t sure about this color combination when I first started this card – I kept having flashbacks to some unfortunate plaid pants I wore in Junior High – but it turns out to be a suitably spooky and Halloween-y color scheme!  And how cute is that little Cookie Cutter Halloween mummy and his bats?  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek – Jar of Haunts Happy Halloween!

Good morning, y’all – it’s Tuesday and I have a confession to make.  This may come as a shocker.

I sometimes overthink my cards.

Yes – it’s true.  I especially do this when I’ve spent the day doing all sorts of things that have nothing to do with making cards.  Today – well, Monday – I moved furniture around in my living room.  And laundered the dog-bed-turned-cat-bed.  And vacuumed.  And set up another table to make a photo-booth area.  And talked on the phone with work.  And with Wayne.  Reset the clocks on the cat feeders.  Scrubbed spots on the carpet.

The end result of all this spinning was that I started thinking about a card for today – Tuesday – at 5:30.  That’s pretty late for me.  The lateness just makes me hurry and make mistakes.  And – overthink every little piece. 😉

I did have a sketch to work from, so that helped.  And I did know I wanted to do a non-Christmas card.  I figured Fall or Halloween.  So I pulled out the new Jar of Haunts stamp set – which coordinates so nicely with the Everyday Jars Framelits!

Jar of Cheer and Haunts - Stamps-N-Lingers
There are two stamp sets in the new 2016 Holiday Catalog that work wth Everyday Jars – cool, huh? 🙂

So – I used Jar of Haunts and some Halloween Nights DSP, and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:
