New Christmas Single Stamps

Stampin' Up! released a new batch of single stamps this morning.  A great variety of Christmas offerings that are available in clear mount...Most of them coordinate with one of the framelits sets, so they'll be easy to cut out with your Big Shot.

I think the one below is my favorite, but you can see all eight of them on this flyer:

September Bunny Buy Halloween Hello and Washi Tape

You're invited to join my new online Stamp Set of the month/Bunny Buy program.  I'll pick a stamp set each month, and you'll get the CLEAR stamp set and 3 completed cards or projects made with the set plus all the instructions (all measurements and a supply list)  for $30.  I will ship the set and cards in a flat rate USPS Priority Mail envelope, so you can join no matter where you live in the U.S.

You sign up for each month separately, so if you don't love one month's offering, you can simply skip that month.  (You may also substitute another set if you have that month's choice.) There is no obligation to continue. However, if you purchase the Bunny Buy for 3 months straight/in a row/consecutively, you will receive $5 off your next month's Bunny Buy.

Payment is due by Paypal no later than the first Friday of the month.  Just email me if you'd like for me to invoice you from my Paypal account. 

(If you'd like to see how I'll write the instructions, click on the Bunny Buy Page at the top and you can see the example I made for August 2013.)

September Bunny Buy...Halloween Hello (and the Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape)

I did 3 projects and just one card for this month since giving treats is the main focus of Halloween.

Stampin' Addicts 2013 Fall Holiday Blog Hop Halloween Hello & Halloween Happiness

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop in which we've highlighted the FALL products from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. (Be sure and join us on October 4 for the Winter Holiday Blog Hop too!) 

You've probably arrived from Tanya's Tinkerin' in Ink blog where she showed us just how gorgeous the Truly Grateful set can be.  Should you get lost or want to chat about the Hop, visit this thread on the Stampin' Addicts website for a complete list...

After seeing the Flip Flop card Shelli made at Convention in July with the Halloween Hello set (page 21) and new Circle Card Thinlits, I felt that I had to show something similar but different. I used the Label Card Thinlits with the Toil & Trouble stamp (page 20) for the front with the Witch and the Halloween Hello inside. For both the witches and the main image, I embossed with Black Craft Ink and Clear Embossing powder. I hope you like the simplified spinner card.

Next, I thought a small electric tealight cover/mini luminary would be cute....the skeleton is a little scary though...

Then I wanted to show a quick bagged treat for Halloween Night or maybe to take to a teacher. Oh, the potential sugary goodness!  I just colored our Black Chevron ribbon using a bit of water and drops of Pumpkin Pie reinker for a more seasonal look.

I also made this card for the MOJO Monday sketch...MOJO305...It uses the Halloween Hello single stamp...I cut it out and removed a few of the tendrils...I placed the Jack O' Lantern definition from the designer series paper in the top left corner too, but that's sort of hard to see.

Continue the Haunting fun on Kathleen's blog, FA Stamper, as she shares her sparkling designs with the Halloween Bash stamp set...
