Stampin' Up! Spooktacular Bash

Stampin’ Up! Spooktacular Bash

Hello Stampers!

Just a couple more days before the ghosts and goblins hits the streets October 31, 2019. ! Here’s a fun Halloween card created by Kimberly Stanke using Stampin’ Up!’s Spooktacular Bash stamp set, coordinating Ornate Frames Dies, and the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper.

It might be hard to tell from the photo, but this is a fun fold card. It opens using the circle/tag on the bottom right-hand corner. The Crushed Curry base measures 11 inches by 4 1/4 inches. The 11-inch side is scored at 1 1/2 and 7 inches and is folded “in” to create a card front. The Designer Series Paper pieces measure 4 x 3 3/4 and 4 x 1 1/4. Kimberly added a fun tag and an embellishment from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes.

Thanks for stopping by today! (I’m off to the store to restock the Halloween candy.)

It’s a Wicked Halloween

Stampin' Up! Wonderfully Wicked/Wicked Dies

Stampin’ Up! Wonderfully Wicked/Wicked Dies

Hello Stampers!

I have a super fun card to share with you today. It’s created by Angela Schmit, and she got her inspiration from a video by Robyn Cardon.

Can you guess how the background is created? With rubber cement; the kind you get from the office supply store.

Start by drizzling the rubber cement onto a blank piece of Whisper White card stock. The size of this piece is 5 x 3 ¾.  Let the rubber cement dry thoroughly. I left mine overnight just to be sure. You’ll get a different design each time, depending on where you drizzle the rubber cement and how much you drizzle.

Then, using Stampin’ Up!’s Sponge Brayers, apply ink on top of the dried rubber cement. This card uses Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, and Mango Melody. It doesn’t matter if the colors overlap a little bit.

Use a paper towel to rub the rubber cement off of the card stock. You’ll remove little “boogers” or pieces of rubber cement. Continue until all of the cement is removed. I suppose you could call this an emboss-resist technique; the white card stock shows where the rubber cement was.

You can then stamp and embellish the background any way you wish. Angela used the die cut from the Wicked Dies and stamped images from Wonderfully Wicked. It’s then layered on Basic Black card stock cut at 5 ¼ x 4 inches and layered on a Whisper White card base.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have any questions about the creation of this card!

A Wicked Halloween!

Hello Stampers!

I don’t know if there’s anyone who enjoys Halloween more than the creator of today’s card! Shelley McVey is one of my team members, and she is crazy about this holiday and everything associated with it. She created this fun card using a variety of products from Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog.

I’m especially intrigued with her creative use of the Coffin Treat Boxes. She cut one up, traced it onto black card stock, and used Shimmer White embossing powder to decorate it. She also added some fun elements from past catalogs including the punched bats and the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper.

The graphics below show all of the products Shelley used to create this “wicked” Halloween card. Click on any of the graphics to shop from my online store 24/7.

Hello Stampers!

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s September Blog Hop! All of the stops on the hop are sharing a range of Halloween and fall crafting ideas using Stampin’ Up! products. Be sure to visit each one and leave a comment using the hashtag #stampitcontest. You’ll be entered for a chance to win the Notes of Kindness Card Kit.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos

The Holiday Catalog is filled with brand-new products for fall crafting projects. I selected the Harvest Hellos stamp set because I really like the coordinating punch (Apple Builder Punch) that can be used either for an apple or a pumpkin, making it a versatile choice.

This card starts with an Early Espresso base, followed by a layer of Old Olive, and topped with a piece of Terracotta Tile Designer Series Paper from the 6 x 6 In Color paper stack. I stamped the pumpkin with Black Memento Ink and punched it out. I also stamped the leave and stem with black ink and punched those out, too. The cute little saying from the set is stamped in Old Olive, and it’s all wrapped together with a piece of Linen Thread.

Look for a list of all of the products I used at the very end of this post. Please contact me if you have any questions. I’d love to help.

Congratulations to Gail Tucker for winning the August card kit.
