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”.

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! 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…

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:

This one works with the Global Design Project challenge #058:

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.

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.

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.

And that was it!  Told ya!

My Crumb Cake Medium Envelope got pumpkins on the front…

…and on the back flap!

Et Voila!  This is a perfectly simple little card – easy to make and easy to mail!  Hope you like!

I went straight up Halloween with this color grouping.  A little cliche but…hey! Sometimes it’s gotta be okay to take the easy way, right? 🙂

I used Jar of Haunts and the Halloween Treat a la carte stamp for my card – and added in a little Halloween Nights DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Spooky Fun Halloween Treat!

Good morning!  Hope your Tuesday is looking like it’ll be a good one.  We’ve got the vet coming for the yearly shots and teeth exams and physicals for the horses.  They love when the vet comes.

Sure – and little kids love going to the doctor!  He uses lollipops (or – do they still do that or is everyone too afraid of sugar!?) and I use peppermints.  Yes – they can all be bought with peppermints.  I can call them up in the middle of the day and they’ll come a-runnin’.  Cuz my policy is to alwaysALWAYS – give them a peppermint when they come in.  And I give them a peppermint when they’re all done!

Mary Poppins used a spoonful of sugar – it’s the same idea!

Bribery is a valid form of persuasion! 🙂

For today’s project,  I decided this would be a good time for a Halloween card.  I don’t know why – I just did!  So I used a few new sets from the Holiday Catalog – Spooky Fun, Halloween Scares and the a la carte stamp called Halloween Treat – which is just the cutest image!

Halloween Treat - Stamps-N-Lingers
I combined all these sets with….some By The Shore DSP! I know – a bit unexpected, but…well, take a look-see:
