Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat Witch Hat Halloween card

Here’s my Stampin’ Up! Spooky Cat Witch Hat Halloween card.  This was a fun color challenge that stretched my creativity. Crushed curry, Perfect Plum, and Cherry cobbler, lol… Hmmmm… Ended up loving the Halloween card I came up with!

It unfortunately doesn’t show up very well, but the Wink of Stella adds just the right touch of shimmer to the potion bottles.  And I also used a black stampin write marker to deepen the color of the witches hat since it was directly against the black cardstock.

For this card start with an A2 card base in black cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The Crushed Curry layer is 5.25″ x 4″, the Black layer is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, and the white top stamped layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″

Scatter the potion bottles across the white layer (remember to leave room for your bubbles!) I did fussy cut the hat, but it’s very easy!  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin'Up! Birthday Blossoms Brick embossed card

Celebrate the big day with the Stampin’Up! Birthday Blossoms Brick embossed card!  Love these fun pansy flowers!

Start this card with a 8.5″ x 5.5″ crumb cake card base.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The Basic Black layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Finally the top Crumb Cake layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.  Emboss this with the Brick Wall embossing folder.

Stamp 2 pansies in white ink on crumb cake and 2 on black cardstock.  Punch out with the pansy punch.  Tip:  Each of the petals is different, so if you place a black mark next to the bottom petal (on the stamp) then it’s easier to line up in the punch!

Stamp and fussy cut the leaves.  Use an office hole punch for the black circles and add the pearls.  Stamp the sentiment on .75″ strip and layer on top of a .5″ black strip.  Flag the ends.  Remember to make the envelope pretty!

Stampin'Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card

This cute Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card is actually quick and easy to create.  Just one run with the Bigshot die cut machine!

The whole background is a sheet of Succulent Garden DSP (but you can use any coordinating paper!)  Punch two silver foil paper clouds and punch with the Tree Builder punch.  Stamp two clouds in smokey slate ink and punch these.

You can run the hot air balloon from the Up & Away thinlets in Bermuda Bay at the same time you run the three white backing pieces!  Attach the white pieces to the back of the balloon.  This gives a spot to hide the pop up dimensionals!

Attach the white ribbon, and make a looped bunch of silver thread.  Attach with a knot.

Stamp your sentiment and flag the ends.  Remember to make the envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card

Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card

This Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card is lovely without being flashy!  I love the Blossom builder punch, particularly for leaves of all colors!

The Bunch of Blossoms stamp set is made up primarily of 3 step stamping which adds so much depth to the images.  The trick is just finding the right combination of 3 colors.  For this card I kept it simple in shades of brown using Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, and Early Espresso ink.

Begin with Early espresso cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  Emboss a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.  And then add a layer of the Moroccan DSP.  Wrap the Very Vanilla Stitched Ribbon and attach the embellishments.

Remember to decorate your envelope!
