‘Tis the Season for Plaid

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

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.

Simply Sunday: Spooktacular Dracula!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

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.

Enjoy your day ~

Halloween Bash Coffin Treat Boxes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

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 lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com or message me below.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping in to see me.

Friday the 13th: Monster Bash Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

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.

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST: I have listed the entire Monster Bash Suite (One number and you’ve got it all) and the bundle, along with each product I used seprately. There is a 10% Discount on the Bundle (including when you purchase it in the suite).

 

Monsterversary …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a great weekend and that you had a chance to check out yesterdays Monster Bash card. A quick -n- simple card with plenty of “spooky” and cute Halloween characters. Speaking of those bewitching characters … we’re joining them to celebrate an anniversary today! I fell in love with the beautiful filigree designer paper, so that will be the base of todays card …

Our anniversary couple was cut from another fun pattern of the Monster Bash Designer paper and I painted the frame with … you guessed it “Wink of Stella”. I just had to add a little glitz to the anniversary card.

The frame was die cut using one of the elaborate frames from the Ornate Frames Dies in the suite … because this one was not the height I needed, I again the cut it in half lengthwise and adhered it to the back to create a mat.  This left a gap between the top and bottom, so I tucked in the beautiful Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon ribbon!! The added sparkle pairs nicely with the Wink of Stella.

The greeting comes in the “Itty Bitty Greeting” stamp set from the Annual Catalog. I stamped into onto Whisper White and cut it out using another of the dies from the Ornate Frames Dies included in the bundle. Then I used one large black enamel dot and two of the small dots from the Monster Bash Enamel shaped and popped the entire assembly onto the card with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I find this Monster Bash product suite so fun to create with.  In fact, watch for a fun class announcement this week. If you love all things Halloween, you are going to love this upcoming class.  Make sure your on my mailing list and / or follow my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page.  

Thank you for sharing your day with me!

Have a great day.

Simply Sunday: Monster Bash Suite

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

With the Holiday Catalog going live in a little more than a week, I just couldn’t wait to share a bit of the SPOOKY side today.  I am using products from the Monster Bash suite … keeping it simple but the pattern I picked from the Monster Bash Designer paper, you don’t need much else! This pattern boosts Haunted Houses, Vampires, Bats and more …

With just this dazzling piece of designer paper, some layering of Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie, topped off with a simple greeting … you have a cute card!

The greeting comes in the coordinating “Spooktacular Bash” stamp set. I stamped into onto the Paper Pumpkin cardstock and punched it out using the Tailored Tag punch, the punched out another piece in Basic Black … cut it in half lengthwise and adhered it to the back to create a mat.  I used the large black enamel dots from the Monster Bash Enamel shaped and popped it onto the card with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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!

I like to cut one sheet from each designer paper pack into 4′ x 6″ pieces … this forces me to use my cardstock and quit hoarding it!! lol  I can then trim the pieces down to fit my card, which I did here and then used the piece I trimmed off to compliment the inside of the card. It’s so cute.

Hope you enjoyed the card.  Sorry for the late post today … I spent Friday with my great-grandson, daughter and grand-daughter shopping and going to the movies.  We went to see Toy Story 4, and yes, I cried!!   And Saturday was Eileen’s sons 50th birthday … so we spent the entire day and late into the evening with him. Needless to say, I did not get much stamping done this weekend!

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.
