Halloween Holiday Home Boo to You!

I used the MOJO Monday MOJO362 sketch for this card made with the Holiday Home Stamp Set....It was fun to make and fairly quick if you don't count the time needed to let the Crystal Effects dry on the lamp globes....Had to do that to make it easier to sponge the Blackberry Bliss night sky. :) You can see the lamposts better if you click on the picture....They almost look like cat's eyes in a way too...spooky!



I used the These Are My Stamps generator to create a list of everything I used to create this card....Most of the items can be clicked to order them in my store...

We'll be using it for the next four class dates-It will be fun to use it for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!  The look totally changes between day and night too! This card uses the MOJOMonday sketch 361.... MOJO361

Stampin' Addicts Holiday Catalog Blog Hop For All Things



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop! (Join us on Friday, October 10 for the Winter Holiday Hop.)  We have several projects to show you, so I hope you'll visit us all.  Should you get lost or want to chat about the hope, visit The Fall Holiday Blog Hop post on Stampin' Addicts. If you're traveling in order, you've just seen Carmen's lovely designs on her Stamping Addiction blog with the Frightful Wreath kit.  I love that her spider is the center of the design.  I think it pops So much more that way!  And leftovers you can use for a card or other decor? Perfect!

I am using the For All Things Stamp Set...It has nice textured leaves and other fall images as well as great fall sentiments.  For this card, I used the Banner Framelits for the main image, and added a rhinestone bling colored with the dark Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities marker.  I think it coordinates the bling nicely with the gold and Very Vanilla Metallic Baker's Twine.  I added a Autumn Wooden element solid Oak Leaf to the Baker's twine and tied a bow on the top of the "leaf".  The background is merely a One Sheet Wonder style stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Baked Brown Sugar and Rose Red. You may have to click to enlarge the picture to see that I used a regular Pumpkin Pie marker to color direct to stamp on the ribbon around the branches. I love the linen texture of the images too.


Next, I have this napkin ring....Quick and easy with the Burlap Ribbon and some cut out leaves in Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  I just added some Autumn Wooden Elements Acorns with a little Linen Thread.

Then, I made these scrapbook pages. I like to have a layout just for myself with pictures of my girls at the same age.  I like the pop of Lost Lagoon with the typical autumn colors too....


It's time to see what wonderfully coordinated designs Tina has made using the Color Me Autumn designer series paper at her blog, Paper Art Garden.  I love the great tablescape and gift designs! Thanks for visiting today!

Simple Christmas Bauble

The Christmas Bauble single stamp is fun to color and easy to color with Blendabilities. I used dimensionals to mount it on the Filigree Frame embossing folder and added Rhinestone bling colored with the medium Blendabilities marker in the center and at each corner.  Cherry Cobbler 1" sheer ribbon and Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details add texture and color.

I'm not so great at leaving a bit of a light spot with the Blendabilities (the streaked spot at the bottom half on the right, so I'll have to work on that. :)

Stampin' Up! An Open Heart Nest Blendabilities on Designer Series Paper

For Shelli Gardner's convention presentation that demonstrators were allowed to see online, she showed a cute little nest made with our Burlap Ribbon.  I think that will be fun for class....I used a combination of Blendabilities and our regular markers to color this little Carolina Wren from the An Open Heart stamp set.  I saw coloring our Designer Series Paper with Blendabilities on a blog post from Stampin' Up! I think it is a fun way to add color to the Back to Black DSP.

Blooming Birthday Flower Fair Framelits Flower Patch Stamp Set MOJO356


Hot summer colors on this Flower Fair Framelit/Flower Patch stamp set card.  I hope you all think it is fun to make this week as well.  MOJO356 made a fun sketch for this card that was quick and easy.  I saw video of our fearless leader, Shelli Gardner, stamping on the large Polka Dot folder using a mask, and I thought this was another easy option.

Yellow Sweetbriar Rose Blendabilities Card

I know Single Roses are typically wild and pink, but since yellow seems to be the prettiest light color we have in the blendabilities right now, I chose it for the last of my swaps. I really like the Venetian Crochet trim with the Lovely Lace embossing folder.  I'm not sure you can see the Dazzling Details in the center of each rose?  I used the Calypso Coral for the centers of the roses as well.  I want to give this to a friend who used Yellow and Navy for her wedding back in the day, so I used Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight with Old Olive.

CASE of Patty Bennett Post it note masked column




I loved Patty Bennett's design using long Post It notes as a mask for a column of sponging.  It is so simple yet really striking I think. I used different colors, but it is a CASE.  Thanks for sharing Patty!

We used 5 inch long Post It notes as a mask.  Patty used the 5 inch wide note cards, but instead I mounted a 5 inch wide layer onto a 5-1/4 inch by 8 inch base with dimensionals.  Add a stamp from the Forever Florals set and ta da! :)

Fry box with Monogram variation...

I made a new tag to go with the Floral French Fry Box you've already seen.  (Decorated with the Flower Fair Framelits and the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die.) At class we all just chose a monogram letter to use with a Pink Pirouette tag and matching Pistachio Pudding and Wild Wasabi leaved decoration.

Cupcake Party Boo Boo card

I made a mistake with this card and didn't catch it until I'd already shipped them AND used them for my classes this month.  I usually mark my retired embossing folders (well any Big Shot stuff) with an R, and I somehow missed marking the Striped Scallop embossing folder from the Spring/Occasions Catalog....so embarrassing!  A big thank you to anyone who decided to go ahead and take the card in the swap.  If I'd noticed my error, I would have used the Fancy Fan embossing folder, and it would have highlighted the scallop-y goodness too.
