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!

Simply Sunday: Silent Night

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a simply beautiful card that I did at with my technique clubs this month. We focused on the “Woodland” embossing folder and some fun techniques that you can use with them to create a “WOW” card.

I paired up the Woodland folder with the beautiful “Wonderland” and “Happy Scenes” stamp sets…


To create this beautiful card, you simply stamp directly onto the Woodland embossing folder with the pines from the Wonderland stamp set. Be sure you stamp on the “raised” side of the folder (the trees will be recessed on the side you stamp on).

Silent Night is stamped on vellum in Mossy Meadow and tucked behind your embossed front … I also used Mossy Meadow to mat the front and highlight the beautiful color.


For the inside of the card, we stamped the trees from “Happy Scenes” into the corner and the verse from “Wonderland” into the center. I love how many of the stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! coordinate together.

Hope you enjoyed my card …


 and I hope you have a beautiful day!

Touch of Autumn in the Air …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card created with the “Woodland” embossing folder! This is such a fun one to play with… I’m sure you’ll come up with more great ideas too.

I teamed it up with the “Happy Scene’s” stamp set … I inked up the fall image with the Momento Ink pad and then did a combination of watercoloring with my blender pen and sponging to soften it up a bit.


I created a unique focal point of that image by cutting it out with the “Leaflets” framelit dies and then matted it with the Tangelo Twist to make it pop even more.

I used one of the other leaves for my greeting which came from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set. Just a fun little twist to an autumn card.


Thank you for dropping by today. I’ll be back tomorrow with the Weekly Deals.

I hope you have a wonderful week.





Cool Technique with Embossing Folders!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am excited that the weekend is here, and today I kick off a new season of my Stampin’ Technique Clubs. Our September technique will focus on different ways you can use your embossing folders… and I chose the new “Woodland” folder.

Today I will show you something fun to do with your folders (they’ll make 2 more!) I can’t show them to you yet because it will spoil their fun. I began my card by embossing the trees using Soft Sky cardstock


Using the “White Stampin’ Chalk Marker” – I colored the trees and branches to highlight them even more. Wow … it looks so cool and it’s so easy to do!!

I colored in the indented areas of the tree with my Soft Suede marker to coordinate with the base of my card. Don’t you think it makes the tree more realistic looking? I love White Birch … I think it’s my favorite tree!


I added a simple greeting (I think this one got past my purging of discontinued sets) and then added one of the new “Snowflake Elements” to add texture and continue the “woodland” feel of the card.

I didn’t want a lot of glimmer on this card, so I added just a touch with a rhinestone in the center of the wooden snowflake. You could easily add glitter to the branches to create a shimmery snow effect!


What a simple way to make an impact (the WOW effect) on your card… just by coloring the embossed area.  Hope you enjoyed today’s technique tip!

Thank you for taking time to visit with me today.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend ~
