Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Cat-oween for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Knew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Halloween!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see who went spooky and who went nice, okay?  

I decided to use the Cat Punch and a few pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits to make a sorta sweet and not-at-all spooky card.  Take a look-see:  

I played along with a couple of sketches on this one.  

The first, from Sunday Stamps, kind of loosely inspired my color choices:  

My layout comes from the folks at the TGIF Challenge.  

I started with a piece of paper from the Painted Autumn DSP and Fast Fuse’d it to a Night of Navy mat.  Then I cut a Delicate White Doily in half and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue – leaving space between the halves so the doilies would peek out from my center panel.  

Next up,  I cut the little cross-shapes out of the corner of a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, using the die in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  To make my background, I used some Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie inks to stamp the leaves images from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, and added the sentiment from Spooky Cat in Night of Navy.  The little speckles and splotches around the sentiment are actually the bubbles rising from the Spooky Cat beakers – stamped in Soft Sky!  Then I Fast Fuse’d it onto a Night of Navy mat and popped it over the doilies with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now the cat.  When I first started making a card for the hop, I thought I wanted to play with the Just Us Girls challenge which asked for Watercolor Block stamping.  So I inked up one of my acrylic blocks with Pumpkin Pie ink, spritzed it with water using my Mister, and stamped it down on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  

And then I changed my mind and went another direction.  Specifically in the direction of this card!  

But I had that paper…and I needed a cat.  So…out came the Cat Punch and all of a sudden – calico kitty!  I added a Night of Navy face with the little stamp in the Spooky Cat stamp set and adhered her to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then is was time for the pumpkins.  I cut a large pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie – and adhered it to some Peekaboo Peach card stock then fussy cut the excess – and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a star-strewn Cajun Craze pumpkin and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally – I stamped a Soft Sky pumpkin on Very Vanilla, added a Jack O’Lantern face in Night of Navy and cut it out with the die in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  He’s added with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue – and finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze leaf from Pick a Pumpkin on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added a strip of the Painted Autumn DSP which I’d matted on Night of Navy.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelop got a Soft Sky Pick a Pumpkin pumpkin – complete with Night of Navy face.  Then I cut a quick sticky note mask and covered the pumpkin, then stamped a Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze leaf over the top…

…and I added another piece of Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m not sure, but…this may be a personal record for me for making Halloween Cards!  But – if you’re going to make them, then it makes sense to use uber-cute stamp sets and Thinlits like you’ll find in the Pick A Pumpkin bundle.  And don’t even get me started on the Spooky Cat bundle – love love love!!  Hope you like!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself!

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Seasonal Lantern Wreath

Happy Hawmp day, y’all!  On a short week!  

I love short weeks.

Almost as much as I love long weekends!

In the Holiday Catalog, on page 27, the designers at Stampin’ Up! show a card where they’re stamping a wreath and using a punched out circle to help make the wreath round.

See it?

Okay.  And, there’s been a bunch of cards on the interwebs making wreaths with the new Leaf Punch.  

Well, for today, I decided to bump those wreaths up a notch – and use the punched circle technique to help me out.  I did use the Leaf Punch, but…I also used a die from the May Flowers Framelits, the Pretty Pines Thinlits, and the new Lantern Builder Framelits.  And, since I’d saved myself 10% by purchasing the Seasonal Lantern Bundle – I also used that matching stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout of the card was inspired by the sketch side of the Sugar Pea Designs challenge this week.

I started out with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and I dry embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then I matted it on a piece of Crushed Curry.  Like I’ve suggested in the past – I cut my panel a little bigger than I wanted it, dry embossed it, and then cut it down to size.

I punched a 2 1/4″ Circle from a piece of scrap card stock and used that to lightly pencil in a circle on the card front.

Next up, I started cutting. With my Leaf Punch I made 5 sets of Old Olive leaves (and I creased all the leaves).  Pretty Pines Thinlits contributed five Cajun Craze “berries” and the May Flowers Framelits made Crushed Curry bigger berries.  Using the leaf dies in the new Lantern Builder Framelits, I also cut some Champagne Foil leaves.  Finally, I made some little swirly-do’s with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits from Pumpkin Pie card stock.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces in place and then made my sentiment.  I used the Seasonal Lantern sentiment and stamped each word individually in Early Espresso on another piece of Wood Textures DSP.  When I cut the words out, I tried to make them look like they were on old pieces of board.  I used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the two pieces – making sure to be sloppy enough to add some good shadow to the edges.

Using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the two “boards” onto the wreath.

I made a looped bow (aka Billie Moan Bow!) from Linen Thread and then made a double length bow from Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine.  Using Glue Dots, I adhered them both to the top of the wreath.

I finished it all off with some Enamel Shapes in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie – nestling them in close to the wreath.

On the inside, I took a small triple leaf image from the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and stamped them across the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel in Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Seasonal Lantern leaves across the front…

…and another piece of Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap.  After I adhered the DSP with Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess, I ran just the flap thru the Big Shot in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.  Hard to see in the picture, but you can really tell it in “person”!

Et Voila!  I love a wreath with a lot of “oomph!” – like I like my cards!  And these two or three die sets really came together so well to create a lovely and lush Fall wreath (she says oh-so-modestly!).  Add in the Seasonal Lantern sentiment and Champagne Foil leaves from the Lantern builder Framelits and I think we’ve got a winner!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

The last weeks (or months…) of summer are fickle.

One minute it’s cool and dry and we think…whew!!  Here’s Fall!

And then…it’s the dog days of summer again.

Well – my little dog has two ways of dealing with the dog days.

One involves water – and it’s one of his (and kids everywhere!!) favorites….playing in the hose!

And the other way to cope is a….nice cool nap in the shade of the golf cart.

Cool concrete – a cool breee – and a bead on the back door in case someone comes out.

Not that he wants anyone to come out necessarily.

It’s just in case, don’t you know!

Stampin’ Up! Labels and Pumpkins to Love

Well – we made it to Friday!  And – it’s the Friday before a 3-day weekend!

And – it’s THE Friday!!  The one where the new 2017 Holiday Catalog is Live, Baby, Live!!

If I did my job right, I’ve been up for a bit by the time you read this – and will have ordered all the Painted Harvest Bundles and got them headed out!  And – ordered a bunch of ribbon and paper and embellishments for the Holiday Catalog shares!!  Whoo-hooo! 🙂

One of the goodies in those shares is in the card I have to share with you today!  I pulled some Spooky Night DSP and added a little Labels to Love and a few pumpkins from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlit dies.  I even threw in a couple of goodies from Spooky Cat.  Take a look-see:

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

The layout for this one is from the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 17.57.35

I started with two rectangular panels of Spooky Night DSP and matted them both on Basic Black card stock.  

I cut a Whisper White circle using the largest Stitched Shapes Framelit dies and then ran it thru the Big Shot in my Woodlands TIEF.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed circle to the card front and then added the smaller matted DSP panel over the top.

Next up, I cut the large pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits in Pumpkin Pie card stock, then I adhered it to a piece of Crushed Curry.  I snipped the excess Crushed Curry.  I also cut the small, star-strewn pumpkin in Whisper White.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I used a few Glue Dots to wind some Black and Gold Metallic Threads in several large loops and then adhered the pumpkins over top.  I fussy cut a witch’s hat from a piece of Spooky Night DSP and plopped it on the large pumpkin with some Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Labels to Love, is stamped in Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly.  Then I punched it out with the new Everyday Label punch.  I punched a second label in Basic Black and adhered it – slightly offset – onto the sentiment label.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

I popped the sentiment over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off the card front, I wrapped a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine twice around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I added a little double-bow with a Glue Dot and a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel!

For the inside, I ran just the side of a Whisper White panel thru the Woodland TIEF.  Then I fussy cut a few more Spooky Night DSP witches’ hats and adhered them over the embossed trees with Liquid Glue.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Crushed Curry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I stamped a witch’s hat from the Spooky Cat stamp set in Basic Black Tuxedo Ink and colored in the buckle with my Pumpkin Pie Marker…

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…and I added a little more Spooky Night DSP to the envelope flap.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

Et Voila!  I think all the different pieces and parts came together to make a fun and kind of whimsical Halloween card!  Hope you like…and are busily getting your Holiday Catalog orders in!!  Take a look-see at the new Host Promotion – and the Merry Patterns stamp set that you could earn for free!!  Read on!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Okay – here’s an ugly truth about dogs.  Who live with indoor cats.

Dog love cat….uhm…tootsie rolls.  Poopa Roca.  Get the drift?

Yes – even Finn.  He’s an awful good boy, but…dog!

Usually we can head him off but…the other day….yea.

So – due to the incredible stinckosity of his breath, and a general urge to throw up a little when he came and panted in our faces – we decided to let him spend a little time outside.  Maybe he’d chew a pinecone.  Or put some pond scum between the cheek and the gum.  Even eat some marinated horse poops.

Anything.  Anything would have been better than what was panting out of his cute little mouth.

Mom?  I swished my mouth out real good with pond water, mom….

Pitiful, isn’t he?
