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! A World of Paisleys and Haunts

Happy Saturday, y’all!  As I write this on Friday evening, it’s raining gently outside, which is a blessing borne on the heels of Matthew – who is mostly assuredly not a blessing to most folks that he’s meeting today.  For those of you affected in a less pleasant way – I’m sending thoughts and prayers for your safety.

Before I get to my thank you card for today….here’s a picture of my little Katy.  I really love when cats forget to be cats – and channel their inner dog.

katy-sleeping
It always cracks me up when they sleep right in the middle of the floor – like a dog would.  Her blue tent, in the background, is a much more cat-like-cave.  Soon after I took this picture of her ridiculous cuteness, she got up and went to the tent for another nap.  And some world surveilling out the door.  You can also see where they’ve scattered some food around the bowl.  I do not know how they decide which kernel among the 20 or so identical kernels in each bowl are not worthy of being eaten.  I vacuum – they scatter – I vacuum – they scatter….  sigh…..  

Okay – that’s your dose of cute for the day!

My card share is a thank you card and I used several stamp sets to get it done.  I used the World of Thanks, Jar of Haunts, and Paisleys & Posies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Halloween Haunts and a Blog Candy Winner!

Mornin,’ y’all!  I hope this post finds you all well and safe.  If you’re on the southeast coast of our country and in the path of Hurricane Matthew, please take the very best of care and keep you and yours safe!

I know you’re all anxious to see who won the Blog Candy, so read on down and check it out! 🙂

My card today is another one for Halloween.  I played around with some of the images in Jar of Haunts – including my little spider who was released from his time out for the first time since “the incident” – and a few from Halloween Scares and Spooky Fun!  And – I combined it with….Petals & Paisleys?!?  Yep!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Haunts Basket of Wishes

I’ve lost a spider.

He’s just a tiny little thing.

Black.

The requisite number of legs.

Clear around the edges.

About the size of my pinky fingernail.

Know what I’m talking about?

You might guess it – it’s one of my favorite images in the Holiday Catalog.

Jar of Haunts Happy Halloween 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers

As I was making today’s card, I pulled out the Jar of Haunts stamp set.  Started stamping my favorite pumpkin image.  Stamp stamp sta….

Hey!

Wha…..?  Where….?

Where’s the spider?

I searched the whole stamp case.  Looked under the piles of scrap paper on my desk.  Rolled back a little and peered under my desk.  

Nuthin’.  Nada.

Tomorrow I’m going to take a flashlight and get on my hands and knees – I have to prepare ahead for this, it’s no longer the easy maneuver it was a few years ago – and see if I can find him.  Cuz….soon I have to run the vacuum.  Like – soon.  And it will definitely find him if he’s down there.  And then he’ll be lost in the vacuum vortex with some real spiders who had a bad day.

Keep your fingers crossed, please.  I want him BACK!!! No. I neeeed him back – I don’t know if I can make it thru the Halloween season without him. 😦

Let’s take a look at the card I was making when I realized that the spider had flown the web.  As I already mentioned, it uses the Jar of Haunts stamp set and a sentiment from the Basket of Wishes set.  And a few little touches from….Glamper Greetings.  Sounds like a bit of a mishmash, huh?  Well, see what you think.  Take a look-see:

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-4-stamps-n-lingers
I let two sketch challenges drive this one – the first is the design.  Hand Stamped Sentiments #247 is where this one came from:

hss-247-sketch
And I played with a theme challenge from The Paper Players.  PP313 is why there’s pumpkins and pies on my card!

pp-313-sketch
I started by stamping the two little images from Glamper Greetings all over a Pumpkin Pie panel in Pumpkin Pie ink and Tangerine Tango.  

Then I SNAILd it to a Silver Foil mat.  Over that, I added a piece of Halloween Night DSP, SNAILd in Silver Foil.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-3-stamps-n-lingers
The pumpkins, from my spider-less Jar of Haunts set, are stamped in Tangerine Tango on Very Vanilla.  Then I used ink from the lid of my Pumpkin Pie ink pad and colored them in, using my old Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I added some extra shading with more Tangerine Tango.

The stems are stamped in Soft Suede – then I outlined the stem portion in Early Espresso with my Stampin’ Write Marker and the leaves in Always Artichoke.  I used the Clear Wink to color the leaves with Old Olive – but letting the Pumpkin Pie show thru as well (which made a fall leaf color).  Then I colored the stems in with Soft Suede, still using the Clear Wink Glitter Brush.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-8-stamps-n-lingers
I fussy cut the three pumpkins and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them onto the card front.

For my sentiment, I used the nice one from Basket of Wishes – individually inking the three phrases with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, and covering the other phrases with Sticky Note tape.  I inked the middle image first – then added a Glamper Greeting Pumpkin Pie pie on either side.  Then I stamped the first and last phrase, and added a pie on either side!

I cut it down to size, and snipped little banners on the ends.  In lieu of another mat, I edged the banner with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere it over the pumpkins.  And that did it for the card front!

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-2-stamps-n-lingers
On the inside, I added a row of Glamper Greetings goodies across the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel – pies in…Pumpkin Pie and Jack O’Lanterns in Tangerine Tango.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-6-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel on a Silver Foil mat and into my Basic Black card base, added the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Medium Very Vanilla Envelope got more of the same Glamper Greetings images across the bottom….

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-5-stamps-n-lingers
…and more of the same on the envelope flap.

jar-of-haunts-basket-of-wishes-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  A little Halloween-ish, a little Fall-ish…kind of a sweet little card for Thanksgiving, I think.  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:
