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!
