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.

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.

Seasonal Chums: Jack-O-Lantern

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today is day 2 of my “Halloween Week” … oooooh we are going to have so much fun!! There will be cards, projects and even a scrapbook page!

Today’s card is one of the projects we made at our September Stamp Club. The Seasonal Chums bundle is a cute new item in the Holiday catalog (page 47) and are more than just “tags”. Look what we did …

We made a cute little window card that exposes our greeting and highlights our Jack-o-lantern. The images are easily cut out with the coordinating framelits dies.

The background was created with the “Brick Wall” embossing folder and gives our card the added texture it needed. 

The Circle and Stitched framelits were used to create our window … a double cut on the Lemon Lime cardstock gives us a pop of color and draws your eye to the focal point.

Our little Jack-o-lantern was colored with the Blender pens and ink pads … including his backside! The grass was pulled from the “A Little Wild” stamp set which also has the double stamps.

Thanks for joining me today. Stop back tomorrow to see what else you can do with these cute little stamps!

Have yourself a wonderful week!

Just for You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Squeezing in a quick post from my phone (again) as my Charter internet service was down again last night! But as promised …I have another cute card from our “My Hero” stamp set.

I created this one using the “pumpkin” from the stamp set and the wave pattern from the Swirly Scribbles Framelit dies! My color pallet is Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.

I curled two of the pieces to add some fun dimension to the card … and it reminded me of pumpkin vines. The little spots come from the Swirly Bird stamp set. It just all coordinated so nicely together.

My greeting comes from the “Watercolor Words” stamp set. The bold font of this set fits right in with the whimsical feel of today’s card.

Thanks so much for taking a part of your day to visit my blog, stop back tomorrow to, as I will be sharing another “My Hero” card and some of the fun we had at our Kick Off Party on Monday.

Have yourself a beautiful day !

A quick and simple card created with the “Happy Haunting” designer Series paper…. this just makes card making so easy! I put my little ghosties on the bottom and stripes on the top! I finished off the bare edges of my paper with the “Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon”.

My greeting comes from the “Among the Branches” stamp set (it’s bundled with the Woodland Textured Folder) which I embossed in black on Pear Pizzazz. I used the “Circle Framelits” to cut it out.
