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!

Trick or Treat

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I had so much fun whipping together yesterdays Black Cat card that I whipped another one together for today. I have used yet another of the patterns in the Magic In This Night Designer Series paper …

Today it’s the “bats” that reign supreme … by far not my favorite mammal, but they make for great Halloween cards! Once choosing the bat designer paper my color pallet was simple; Basic Black, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight for our Moon and Gorgeous Grape for a pop of color!

What this color pallet doesn’t show is the Black Glitter paper which was used for our bats ….

What is so cool is my die cut bats from the Halloween Magic dies from the Hallows Night Bundle actually align and fit within the bats on my designer paper.

With a few of the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the bats … our card now has some fun dimension and depth! Makes them look like they are really flying around.

A simple greeting and the card is complete! I know I’ll be sharing more from this product suite, it’s so fun to use. Are you a Halloween fan?

Thank you for stopping by today, looking forward to the week ahead and I’ll be sharing more about that later.

Have a wonderful day ~

Monster Bash Double Z-Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So glad we’re such ghoul friends … that is our frightfully fun greeting on todays Halloween card which highlights the Spooktacular Bash Bundle. I’ve also showcased three (3) patterns from our Monster Bash Designer Series paper and in a fun Double Z-Fold card …

I started with a Paper Pumpkin base which coordinates perfectly with our designer paper.  The first pattern has all our ghoul friends featured on it and is attached to the first panel of our card.  The second pattern is a pair of our ghoul friends which were fussy cut and attached to front band of the “Z” which our greeting was stamped with the Spooktacular Stamp Set.

Inside our card you will find the creepy “Spider Web” pattern … with the “Double Z-Fold” card you get a sneak peek of this pattern because of the unique way it is folded. You will also find our eerie apothecary jars filled with ghoulish delights! Colored with our Stampin’ Blends and magically dazzled with a touch of our Wink of Stella.  The ingredients in the jar are a bit “bone-chilling” if I do say so myself!

This product suite is so fun to work with and a great addition to your Halloween decorating arsenal.  You will be seeing even more samples so stay tuned!

Have a frightfully fun Friday and thanks so much for your visit to my blog today.



Pick Your Potion …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back today with the sneak peek card that I created using one of the new stamp sets from our Holiday Catalog! Can you guess what “holiday” I picked? I’m sure many of you know that my first choice will be Halloween!  You’re right!

You’re going to love the stamp set I chose, it’s the “Festive Phrases” stamp set on page 45. Once you flip to the page, you’ll know why I had to have this set … it not only has a cute Halloween greeting but those Christmas one … OMG!! You gotta love ’em!!

Along with my greeting, you’ll notice the cool Designer Series paper ” Spooky Nights”… you can find it with the Spooky Night product suite on pages 52 and 53.  The designer paper actually coordinates with the Spooky Cat stamp set and the Cat punch … I’ll show you more in future posts, but for now, just check out all the samples on page 52!!

I teamed up with Stitched Framelit Dies along with the Circle Dies to highlight my greeting “Pick Your Potion” and then popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Did you notice the cute little potion bottle on the background designer paper … I love that Stampin’ Up! create products that can be used together with many different products.

My base of the card is Pumpkin Pie and the designer paper is matted with the Basic Black. The greeting was stamped on Very Vanilla … all colors are listed on the designer paper pack so it’s not hard to pick what colors you should use!

Now … couldn’t you picture making just the round greeting attached to the banner and then attach hang it on a few bottles of wine … or sparkling water! lol  Just have some fun with it 🙂

I’ve got a list of the items used below. By clicking on the picture you will be taking to my Stampin’ Up Store and will view more details of the item you clicked … The “Festive Phrases” stamp set and “Spooky Nights” Designer Series Paper cannot be purchased until September 1st, but you’ll want to put it on your Wish List!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, wait till you see what I have for you tomorrow!

Till then, have a great day!!




Just One Bite …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

This Tuesday we’re going to bite into the Halloween Night Product Suite! So many fun and fabulous products to make cute Halloween cards.

I will begin with the “Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper” … I was asked why they call it “specialty”, well, that is because it has two special sheets with silver foil … one has silver polka dots and the second is the spider webs which I’m using on today’s card. Of course the cute paper with the bats flying all over also comes from this pack.


What goes better with bats than Dracula! We have a cute little Drac that coordinates with the Cookie Cutter punch … on my, they are so cute! I colored his shirt in Smoky Slate and his vest in Elegant Eggplant. And because he’s a count, his purple vest was highlighted with the “Wink of Stella” glitter brush.

I didn’t want Drac to be to drab … so I added small clusters of the “Halloween Night” Enamel Dots. They also highlight the greeting which comes fromt he “Spooky Fun” stamp set. They are so much fun to work with and it keeps my card from getting too scary for the grandkids.


So no tricks today, just treats … a sweet Halloween card that’s easy to replicate when you’re ready to make your cards for this fun holiday!

Thank you for checking out my blog today.

I hope your day is fabulous~





EEK … Spiders!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a chance to check out my blog yesterday and the multiple treat boxes I made with the “Curvy Keepsake Box” die. I share Halloween and Christmas boxes.

Today, I will continue with my Halloween week with my latest design that will make you go EEK!! Just image an walk through the forest and low and behold … it’s filled with spiders!! Spiders Everywhere!!

This card was quick and easy to create. I began with the “spider” pattern from the Happy Haunting Designer Series paper. The you simply run it through the Bigshot using with Embossing Folder – Woodland.


With a light touch and the side of your marker, color the “raised” tree’s from the folder. That ‘s it.  A bit of Tangelo Twist for a pop of color and a simple greeting … “EEK” from the Little Letters Thinlit Dies.

You know what’s really creepy … it reminded me how we used to run through the cornfields when we were kids, later I learned how many spiders live in those cornfields! EEK!!!

Thank you for stopping by ~

Have a “fabulous” Friday!
