Last night we kicked off our 2019-20 Stamp Clubs. I’m so excited to gather my group of stampers around the table again. It’s always a good time. This month we are creating cards featuring the new “W” Fold card. I’m sorry I can’t share these with you “yet” … I have another Club on Saturday and I want them to be surprised. I promise I will be sharing in the near future.
Today I’d like to share the little treat boxes that I have made for each of my club members. It comes from the 2019 September Paper Pumpkin: Bone Appetit. These little cuties are adorned in black strips or polka dots on a orange foil.
The little tags have cute dancing skeletons (above) or a spider web (below) … just too cute! I feel in love with the skeleton hand that acts as a closure for our box …
These little boxes were quick -n- easy to assemble and decorate… and they are filled with chocolates! Can’t get better than gathering with friends, having fun making cool stuff for Halloween and chocolate!
We have a couple chairs around the table that will be open for non-club members to join us. I will post the dates and the card fold / technique that we will be doing that month, and you can RSVP and join us. Although you will not receive Hostess Benefits like club members, you will still get to create the projects with us!
To sign up for Paper Pumpkin or get more details … click the Paper Pumpkin button on the side bar on my post.
Tomorrow I will share with you a totally cute alternative project I created using my kit.
Thank you so much for joining me today, hope your day is a good one.
The perfect way to make your Christmas season merry and bright is by adding a little bit of plaid and a whole lot of cheer! You can do both with the Wrapped in Plaid Suite, and you’ll love the amount of charm it can add to your projects.
But you get a lot more than plaid in this suite, and all of our samples above feature what comes with it. Whether it’s the cute bell embellishments, or the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes, or even the pages and pages of our specialty designer series paper (which features more patterns than plaid!), you will love everything that makes this suite ready to help you bring in Christmas. And the Pine Tree Punch is perfect for any season, so it’s a must-have for any collection.
Looking for a great deal on your craft supplies or goodies for the stockings? Our Clearance Rack has just been “plumped” up in time for the holidays … Check it out, there are a lot of great items to choose from!

Today I’m sharing another sample created with the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper includes delicately detailed laser-cut sheets with a touch of shimmer. Vanilla on one side, white on the other side. One design is a 12″ x 12″ pattern; the other design has distinct patterns to cut out and use on card fronts.
The laser-cut paper is used over the top of color so it really pops and is framed by using the Layering Squares Dies to create your own frame.
Images in the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper were hand colored using Stampin’ Blends for a soft, blended look. The birds were cut out of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. With beautiful birds and colors, you will love this Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. You can get yours today by clicking the link below.
Lets not forget that our designer papers are on sale right now…
If you scroll back to past posts, you’ll see I have shared many samples from the Bird Ballad, Dinoroar, Magnolia Lane and Come Sail Away Designer Series papers … these are just a few of my favorites. I have listed the page numbers on the chart above so you can see all the amazing papers.
Let me know if you have any questions about this promotion, todays card or an upcoming class. I’d be happy to answer your questions.
Today I have another card share from the Monster Bash Suite bundle … this includes all of the coordinating products. This is actually a step up from my usual Simply Sunday as we will be using the beautiful dies that are included in this suite. I try to stay away from die cutting on my Simply Sunday posts but this suite is too cute and easy to play with.
This card was not part of my Halloween Bash class … two of the cards we made included a fun fold and a shaker card! In fact, I have had additional interest in this class; I will be hosting another ♥ Here is the information …
Today’s card was created by me and my 4 year old Great Grandson … he loves using the Bigshot!! His GG (me) shows him how to layer and he makes it go. lol He cut both of the delicate frames out for me. The large is cut from Lovely Lipstick and the small is cut from Basic Black … both of these ornate frames are included in the die set that comes in the bundle.
We stamped Dracula and also die cut him from a coordinating die. Love how these layer…
We colored the background of Dracula’s picture in Lovely Lipstick and then added Wink of Stella to it. It really adds dimension to the picture. The frame was colored with Soft Suede and then was layered onto our ornate frame.
Our second ornate frame showcases our greeting which comes from the coordinating stamp set; Spooktacular Bash Cling Stamp Set. I’ve also added “Wink of Stella” to the frame which coordinates with the background we created behind Dracula. A touch of ribbon behind our greeting and black enamel dots from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes.
Junior likes Stampin’ Dimensionals as well so he helped me pop up the greeting and Dracula. We added a strip of this pretty Monster Bash Designer Series Paper pattern to the inside of the card to coordinate with the front and our card is done!
I hope you enjoyed our card today … Junior and I sure had fun making it! I might have to invite him over to help me bigshot all the pieces for our upcoming Halloween Bash class.
Thank you for sharing a part of your Sunday with me.
How are you on this beautiful day? Last night I held my Halloween Bash …
Although I don’t share all our creations, I would like to share one. It is the Monster Bash Coffin Boxes which make the perfect little treat box for those very special Trick or Treaters in your life. These would also make good table décor, gift boxes or name place holders, with a treat of course at your Halloween Bash!!
These little beauties come pre-cut and pre-scored in a package of 12 so all you have to do is glue them together. If you would like to dress them up a bit, you can emboss the lid with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder like we did in class. The we used the new Copper Metallic Ink pad to “age” our coffin a bit. With a gentle touch, simply drag the ink pad across the raised (embossed) images on the lid.
The cute little greeting, the black mat and the ornate copper background were all cut from the dies included in the Spooktacular Bash Bundle! Love our bundles because you can save 10% and that savings is also included when you purchase the entire product suite as a bundle… Nice! That is what I did because I had to have it all. I will share more of the product suite with you this month.
We added a piece of Lovely Lipstick ribbon behind our greeting and then I put a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock through my shredder and tucked it into the box to hold my treats. I like using my cardstock this way because then it coordinates with the colors I use in the rest of my project.
I hope you enjoyed our little treat boxes as much as we did making them. They really are quick -n- easy to do and will add the prefect touch to your Halloween party. Better yet, when you see the excitement in the eyes of your special little trick or treater when you give them this fun Halloween treat.
I have a few people interested in a second class … If you would like to join us, let me know and I will host another. We had a great time and everyone loved the projects we did!! email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me below.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping in to see me.
For those of you who enjoy staring at the moon… you’re in for a treat this week. Get ready for the harvest moon effect — when it will seem like five consecutive nights of full moons. And for the first time in 19 years, Wisconsinites will get a full moon on Friday the 13th, and it won’t happen again until August 13, 2049!!
I have a full moon for you …
The inside greeting also comes from the “Spooktacular Bash” stamp set and was stamped onto the Very Vanilla cardstock. I then punched a 1-1/2″ circle from a piece of scrap cardstock and used it as a “mask” so I could sponge a moon onto the card … just to add a little more drama. I used Crushed Curry for my moon, which coordinates with the Monster Bash Designer paper!
There are so many cute patterns in the Monster Bash Designer paper and this is one of my favorites. I love anything that makes my card making quick and easy! BUT … it has to be cute, handsome or beautiful!! We won’t skimp on looks!
I have another cute card for you, both of these I have shared earlier but I couldn’t resist sharing these on Friday the 13th!! I have more samples but can’t share them yet, they are for my Halloween Bash Class tonight. I really like the vintage looking pattern on this card (actually, the background is another pattern/color in the paper pack).
Our handsome couple comes from yet another pattern in the Monster Bash Designer series paper. The beautiful frame behind the picture comes from the coordinating die set. This vintage look of this could be used for a “real” anniversary card or anything you choose … just replace our couple with a sentiment or a flower pattern.
Thank you so much for joining me today, I’ll be back tomorrow at my usual time with another great card.
Have a beautiful day.
