Simply Sunday: Spooky

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Before we begin I would like to “WELCOME” all our new blog readers! So glad you joined us and I appreciate that you all take time out of your busy day to visit my blog… Thank You!

As many of you know, my sister and I have been busy preparing for our upcoming Holiday Retreat, so I have decided that I’m going to celebrate the upcoming holiday …. Halloween, by sharing a week long feast of “Tastefully Spooky” cards and more!!

Today’s Simply Sunday post is a quick -n- easy card that is sure to bring a smile to those who receive it. A simple pumpkin created with 3 circles punched for our 2-1/2″ punch. I sponged the edges to create an appearance of dimension that you would see on a real pumpkin.


The cute little face on my pumpkin comes from the “Sparkly Seasons” stamp set. I purchased the bundle and saved 15% which gave the the “Spooky” from the “Seasonal Frame” thinlits dies! I used the silver glimmer paper so it would add that Halloween sparkle to my card.

The leaves come from another bundle (yes, I like things on sale!) the Vintage Leaves and Leaflets Framelits. The stem was just cut free hand … easy!


My background designer paper comes from the “Timeless Elegance” collection. Wait till you see what I did with it on tomorrows card! Remember, I’ll be sharing “Halloween” projects all week long.

Thanks again for joining me today!

Vintage Leaves

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Summer is coming to an end and fall is right around the corner … I know this because the beautiful Maple down the street is beginning to turn colors! Really …Wow!

On that note, I thought I would pay homage to a beautiful new stamp set found in our main Idea Book & Catalog… the new Vintage Leaves stamp set.

I found this awesome sample on one of the boards at Convention this year and just had to share with you. I wish I knew who created this beautiful card but names are not listed (at least visible to us).

Convention Card - Vintage Leaves

No fussy cutting with this card … Stampin’ Up! has created coordinating framelits “Leaflets” make recreating this card simple.

I love, love, love, the addition of the glimmer paper … how pretty! To tie it all up … the “Linen Thread”.

And finally the greeting comes from our fun “Expressions Natural Elements” … fit’s perfectly with this card, don’t you think!?

I hope you enjoyed this beautiful card as much as I did when I saw it on the Convention board.

Thanks much for stopping by.

Have a wonderful day ~
