Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

With only a few more days before Halloween, I thought it would be fun to visit some of my favorite Halloween cards. Plus, we are celebrating one of my favorite sales of the year … the Designer Paper Sale.

I also have an “Invitation” to a very special party …

Today, I’d like to invite you to take a walk back with me through the hauntingly tempting “Magic in this Night” product suite. Let’s see the many looks this one suite can create ….

Next, Pinwheel card …

The Pinwheel Technique is a fun and easy card to create. You can CLICK HERE to view the post on this card, or CLICK HERE to watch the video on how to make the PinWheel card!

Stepping it up a bit by introducing the Hallows Night Bundle dies …

In Basic Black and Gorgeous Grape added to the stunning designer paper, this Halloween card has gone Gothic with a flair! You can read how this card was HERE … just click that link. The patterned bats are beautiful and I added a few “glitter” bats to enhance it further.

This card uses some of the same dies but by switching out the designer paper pattern, it changes the entire look ….

I like all 5 of the cards I’m sharing with you today, however I think this one is my favorite … it’s kind of sexy for a Halloween card! I share the tips on creating this card – just CLICK HERE to view. I love this pattern in the Magic in the Night Designer paper, I believe it would be beautiful on other holidays as well as Halloween.

A Halloween Kitty for you ….

They tell us to watch out for black cats but how can you resist this cute little kitty. Yet another pattern from the Magic in the Night Designer paper sets the stage for our card (Read More Here) Fun and simple and perfect for your feline lovin’ friends.

Here’s the last one …. for today anyway!

I’ve gone a bit batty on this one … with the designer paper and the die cut bats this quick -n- easy card would be a treat for anyone who loves to celebrate Halloween. You can read the full details HERE.

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought today would be the perfect day to share all these amazing cards. Tomorrow I will be sharing another of the designer papers on sale.

A Treat Box for Every Reason …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing some cute treat / gift boxes that are super easy to make! These boxes will be celebrating Halloween, Christmas and a time for friends. One 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper will make 2 boxes. Once you start making these boxes … you’re going to want more paper!

This very first box was created with the Forever Greenery Product Suite. The cute little stitched circle die cut comes from the Heartwarming Hugs bundle and the leaves were cut directly from a wreath cut using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle.

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and join me while I take you step by step creating this simple box …

So easy right? I will also be sharing the dimensions with you, as promised in the video. I thought it would be fun to share the box made in this video along with the card I made in last weeks video. You can find all my videos on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape YouTube Channel … please subscribe while you are there 🙂

The next little treat box celebrates Christmas … I used the Heartwarming Hugs Product Suite. With so many amazing papers in this package, it was hard to choose one … hope you like it!

The “For You” badge was fun to make … first I stamped it in Real Red on Whisper White and die cut it with this die that cuts out the center as well. The cool die that mats the circle is a fun shape to work with. The tree was stamped in Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzazz.

I wrapped a ribbon around the top and tied a bow on … you don’t always need a handle! The next treat box I want to share is my Halloween one …

My Oh My … I had fun with this one!! I wrapped the top and created the handle with Pretty Peacock cardstock … along with a piece die cut with the fun shape from the Heartwarming Hugs! Using that die I also cut a piece from the Black Glitter paper… together they make a fun design behind the greeting.

I blinged out the handle with more of the Black Glitter paper and those lovely Iridescent Pearls. The next treat box was created with the same Magic in this Night suite … No handle!

This one was created with the help of the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin. The greeting, the hat, the flower and the mini doily are all from the Paper Pumpkin kit! I’ll be sharing more about the upcoming Paper Pumpkin soon.

Here are the dimensions for our treat / gift box ….

I hope you have enjoyed today’s project share … they were really fun to make. I wasn’t kidding when I said that once you start making them that you’ll want more paper ….

Don’t forget that 15 of our designer papers are 15% Off until the 31st of this month. The deadline is coming up soon. Let me know if you need any help placing your order.

Thank you for joining me today …

Have a wonderful day!

Don’t Miss the “Joy to the World” Kit!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Bells are ringing, angels are singing, and the new Joy to the world Paper Pumpkin Kit is coming soon! I’m here today with a friendly reminder that today is the last day to get in on the October Paper Pumpkin kit.

The Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin Kit was designed to bring people together—connecting them with one another and spreading joy with each other around the world! I think it’s going to be amazing! With die-cut sentiments in English, French, and German, you can send holiday cheer to their friends across the globe—in their language.

I have a couple of the tote bags left if you’d like one … Purchase a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription (Just click the links below) and I will send one out to you!

You’ve seen my “alternative” cards with the September kit … Here’s a reminder …

I cut apart one of the “cracker” wraps and used it to create my little flower pots … the flowers where there so I made little pots for them! Then I used the scalloped edge as a valance … it is secured directly to the top, and the bottom half is popped up.

Glad you stopped in today, this special offer is for any who purchases one of the subscriptions below … While supplies last

Thank you for hanging out with me today. Enjoy your weekend!

To Halloween… and Beyond!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Who said a Halloween kit has to create Halloween cards? I’m still reeling from the excitement that I experienced on World Cardmaking Day with a group of wonderful stampers. We gathered from Wisconsin, Canada, South Dakota, Montana, Oklahoma and beyond!! It was awesome, and so were the projects we made with the Paper Pumpkin kit.

Today I’d like to share the fun alternative Paper Pumpkin projects that I shared on Saturday. It’s amazing how the energy of others really can get the creative juices flowing. I thought this one turned out so cute … It goes beyond Halloween!

I cut apart one of the “cracker” wraps and used it to create my little flower pots … the flowers where there so I made little pots for them! Then I used the scalloped edge as a valance … it is secured directly to the top, and the bottom half is popped up.

The group decided that I should put the greeting onto the valance… I agree, I think it looks cute on there!

Our second card is all Halloween and also created from the cut pieces … actually the panels, and the cute embellishments enclosed in the kit.

This little cutie was quite simple and easy to create. I love playing and making alternatives to the Paper Pumpkin kit, just shows the versatility. The only thing I used that wasn’t in the kit for this card was the “Subtle” embossing folder … wanted a little texture (on both cards).

Glad you stopped in today, I have a special offer this month for any who purchases one of the subscriptions below … While supplies last

Thank you for hanging out with me today. Enjoy your week!

Have a Happy Halloween

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I’m a little late with my post today, I have my 16-month old Great Grandson here this weekend … and let’s just say, he’s a handful!! And this GG is not used to 24-7 chasing (my house is not Khari-proof) lol

So what is the quickest way to make a card? Grad a card kit or a Paper Pumpkin and your on your way. There are so many cute embellishments in the September Paper Pumpkin kit … I used the Pumpkin embellishments and the leaf and greeting stamps that are included.

I used Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze (Cajun Craze is included in the kit) to stamp my cute little leaf.

The jack-o-lantern face and greeting were both stamped in the Tuxedo Black Momento ink. The base and mat for my pumpkins are Pumpkin Pie … the perfect Halloween color!

I’m thinking I should have run this through the embossing machine with the “Subtle” embossing folder … this would have given the card some texture along with the dimension … just a thought. What do you think?

I appreciate you stopping back for the visit today….

Hope your day is a good one.

Frosted Impressions Technique!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have the coolest technique to share with you, and it is so simple you will ask yourself “why” you didn’t think of it myself? lol This technique is called Frosted Impressions.

You will need your window sheets, an embossing folder and an embossing machine, I tried out the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss by Stampin’ Up! I love it’s size, the smooth roll and the fact that each plate is numbered (I’ll share more about that another time). I used the “Cobwebs” embossing folder …

I emboss your Window sheet with your favorite folder and then use sand paper to create the “frosted” look. Watch my short video to see exactly how I did this …

Wasn’t that simple? And it’s so cool … Emboss, sand, and you have a cool background!! I thought the spider webs were appropriate for upcoming holiday … but I truly believe those snowflakes in the mini catalog would be stunning.

I used the many of the components from the Magic in this Night Suite; I’ll have a list for you below.

Now … a quick reminder that today is our 24 hour Stamp Sale … you’ll want to stock up with this stellar price! For one day only, you can purchase select cling and photopolymer stamp sets at a 15% discount.

From Scraps to Splendid … Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I share two card layouts with you that are perfect for using up your scraps of designer paper!! Our first layout uses 9 – 1″ squares ….

The Whisper White piece that holds these 9 designer paper pieces measures 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and the Real Red mat behind it is 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″.

The card base is Real Red and measures 4-1/4″ x 11″ and the Whisper White measures 4″ x 5-1/4″ … both white pieces were embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder. Before embossing it, the greeting was stamped from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.

OK … Here’s the fun part. I’m sharing they layouts and I would like to see what you come up with!! You can post them on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook pagewe’ll have a contest!!

Our second layout …

Strips of Designer Paper and a bow is all you need to create with this layout, but I did add a little more! The base of the card is Blackberry Bliss and the Basic Black mat was embossed with the Old World 3-D Embossing Folder.

The strips of designer paper come from the Magic in this Night Designer Series paper and a strip of the Black Glitter Paper. I did stamp my greeting directly onto the Blackberry designer paper … it comes from the Festive Corners stamp set.

I’ll post a notice on my Facebook page and then make sure you share cards. We’ll do a SPIN 2 WIN on all the entries. Let’s have some FUN this Friday!

See you on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page!

A Fun Spin on Halloween

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How did you enjoy the video for the Pinwheel Technique? Yes, I got a little long at the end but I was excited to share all the fun upcoming events. I also told you I would be sharing a another version on my Pinwheel card!

So lets have some fun … One way you can change up your layouts is to change the orientation of the card. Yesterdays card was in the Vertical / Portrait so I changed the orientation to the horizontal / landscape for my Halloween card …

I used the Magic in this Night Designer Series paper for my card. The pinwheel is created in the same way as shown in the video. I love bringing back techniques that many have left far behind and forgot about.

There is something magical about this technique, and the pinwheel alone reminds me of a quilt piece or the Pennsylvania Dutch folk art you see on a barn. That’s why every couple of years I bring it back and introduce it to new stampers.

The greeting comes from the stamp set Hallows Night Magic which comes from the same “suite” as our designer paper; Magic in this Night. I created the neat ends were punched from the new … and anchored the ends with the Iridescent Pearls.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing another version of the Pinwheel Technique, and remember … take those layouts and change up the orientation and you’ll have even more ways to play!

Thank you for popping in today … have a great day!

No Tricks … just Treats Wreath!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And a happy Saturday to you! I’m sharing a card with your today to illustrate what a difference a background can make! Then I will share the step by step process I used to create the background.

Here is a look back at yesterdays Happy Halloween card highlighting the Arrange a Wreath bundle …

Today we are going to use the very same layout as we did yesterday. Layouts are a great way to help you out when your stamping … it gives you a headstart on how to create your card, a pattern so to speak.

I wouldn’t sew a dress or make a quilt without a pattern so you can see how helpful it can be. You can use the simple layout for any holiday, occasion, and just because it shows a circle doesn’t mean you can’t use a square shape or even a star!

I have just started creating layouts … this one is quite colorful!! lol But it shows the “layering” … our weath, the banner for the greeting, and also shows a textured background.

Let’s see what it looks like in a real card ….

The background was fun and super easy to make …

  1. I began with the Smoky Slate Cardstock
  2. Emboss using the Old World Paper 3-D Embossing Folder
  3. Drag your Momento Black Ink Directly over the embossing
  4. Lightly Sponge some additional Black ink over cardstock to soften the harsh black lines.

I think this looks so cool and it really defines the dimension on the card! The wreath was made exactly like yesterday except, I layered my greeting this time to add even more color….

The “Trick or Treat” comes from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in the Annual Catalog. The I added the gorgeous Iridescent Pearls to both the banner and the wreath.

I want you to feel free to copy the card layout “pattern” … just right click on the image and “save” to your files. I’m hoping to make more but right now I’m focusing on “classes” 🙂

Thank you for today’s visit …. enjoy your Saturday. I’ll see you tomorrow for my Simply Sunday post.

Halloween Wreath

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am thrilled to share my “Arrange a Wreath” card with you today as promised in yesterdays post… I had so much fun playing with this, and I have only begun! I’ll be posting the class details this weekend.

Today’s card uses the wreath dies as the focal point …

The Black Glitter paper and Pumpkin Pie cardstock were cut with the “elm” style leaf and the Granny Apple Green was cut with the “oak” style leaves (this is the best way I can describe them).

The “Happy Halloween” comes from the Hallows Night Magic stamp set and was stamped on Granny Apple Green using my Stamparatus to double stamp it so it appears darker …

The background was fun and super easy to make … I began with the Gorgeous Grape Cardstock and layered the fantastic Metallic Mesh Ribbon over the top … it creates a creepy web looking background.

It adds cool texture and a little sparkle, pairs so sweetly with the Black Glitter paper ….

My final step to the card is to attach the wreath. I used the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals so they would not show through the wreath. It adds another layer of dimension and completes the card …

I love the bright colors from the wreath against the Gorgeous Grape and Metallic Mesh Ribbon, it really does give you that Halloween feel.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card as much as I enjoyed and had fun making it.

Have yourself a great day and enjoy the beginning of your weekend.

Halloween Banner Fun …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

This morning I was looking around on Pinterest and noticed one of my cards from 2013 was still getting hits … Yes!! That is cool, makes me happy that my card inspires people. Here it is ….

You can see the original post HERE. Today I have taken the same layout I used on the original card and updated it using the Magic in this Night Suite.

I chose 3 patterns from the Magic in this Night Designer Series paper creating my Halloween Banners …. One strip is 1″ … then 3/4″ and the last is 1/2″ wide. I used the Triple Banner punch to punch the ends … then I layered them as shown on the card.

I started with a Basic Black base and then Cajun Craze which I ran through the NEW Stampin’ Cut & Die machine (man, does that work nice!!) using the Cobweb 3-D embossing folder. This was then layered onto a piece of Old Olive… just to add a pop of color.

For my greeting, I chose the pretty frame from the Hallows Night Magic Stamp Set which I stamped with the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and then colored with the Stampin’ Write markers. The “Happy Halloween” was stamped with Cajun Craze and the entire piece was popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I must say … I love this Halloween suite, one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen! Did you ever think Halloween to be …. pretty?!

Thank you for hanging out and waiting for today’s post! Much appreciated.

Enjoy your day ~

Festive “Halloween” Corners …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I had so much fun making yesterday’s “So Very Merry” card that I thought I would make another … Halloween. The Festive Corners stamp set is filled with fun holiday sentiments. I bought it to decorate my envelopes but found it to be so much more ….

Today’s card started out as a simple Halloween card … I used my Stampartus to ensure the correct placement of my greeting to my spider web. Then I thought it needed a bit more … so I moved my stamped cardstock “ever so slightly” and stamped again!! Now I got a shadowy effect … how cool is that!

I used the hauntingly real spider from the Hallows Night Magic Stamp set … I wanted that “spooky” effect! To make it even more spooky … I used the Wink of Stella between the webs and in the open areas (very small) between the double stamped “spooky”.

I wish the Wink of Stella showed up in the pictures … but the Cobwebs from the Cobwebs 3-D embossing folder show up perfectly and adds some fun texture to this card. This was such a fun and easy card to make.

To finish off the card, I popped up the layered stamped images up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals. The color pallet I used today was …

Are YOU ready for Halloween? Autumn is my favorite season … the warm days and cool crisp nights, and the smell in the air. Love it!

Hope you enjoyed today’s card … if so, please feel free to LIKE my post or comment below.

Thank you and have a wonderful day ~

Magic in this Night reflection …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are doing well … I’m great. Today and tomorrow I am attending the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Summit. We were to gather in New Orleans but the venue was cancelled due to Covid, so we’re going virtual. Hoping to learn more about that so I can share in more ways than ever before!

Prior to our Summit Stampin’ Up! sent us a little gift for of all places … Tiffany’s!! I will admit, it brought tears to my eyes. #leaderssummit

Yesterday we all gathered around our computers / laptops for the Welcome Reception and were told to bring our “gift” along so we could toast the kick off of the summit …

I’m so excited and can’t wait to hear the presenters, find out where the next Incentive Trip will be and to “be in the know” of what’s is coming for us next. I’ll be sure to share anything I can!
