Halloween Treat Bags with Designer Series Paper

The Halloween Night Designer Series Papers are a great start for all kinds of Halloween Treat Bags.  The possibilities are endless when you add the bundle of Halloween Scenes thinlits and Spooky Fun stamp set, all from Stampin’ Up!  Check out the super sparkly Paper Pumpkin glimmer paper circles.  The bags are cut from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Dies.  In person, they are so yummy!

There are so many ways to build little scenes of spookiness — the moon, witch, bat, pumpkin, ghosts, fence, and lovely tree — on and on!

Fun Halloween Stuff in 2016 Holiday Catalog!

The new 2016 Holiday Catalog is STUFFED (get it? I said stuff in the title) with Halloween goodies for you to use on your projects.  Each year, I am struck by how many people really LOVE Halloween as a holiday.  It is tons of fun, with less pressure, don’t you think?  The Halloween Scenes bundle, which contains thinlits and the Spooky Fun stamp set, has so many possibilities for spooky little scenes — the cool tree, the fence, the cute pumpkins, the bats….and so forth and so on!  This shaker card builds a scene behind little window using the Hearth & Home Thinlits.  Some elements are stamped, and some are simply cut out using the thinlits and the Big Shot to create silhouettes.  I added some gold thread and a couple of fun spider webs on the wall.  Halloween Scenes Spooky Fun CardClose Up Halloween Window

Copper Foil Paper and Flourishing Thinlits

It’s been a busy time for me with school just around the corner.  I finally had a chance to do some stamping, and had such a fun time with a card inspiration from Stampin’ Up! Artisan Cindy Schuster.  I used my own combination of colors and decided these beautiful leaf thinlits needed the Woodland embossing folder as a backdrop.  The colors are Raspberry Ripple, Perfect Plum, and of course the beautiful copper foil paper in the center of the three leaves.  This card, in person, just GLOWS.  The colors are beautiful, and the copper foil paper is so rich!Copper Flourish Crumb Cake Woodland Embossing FolderClose Up Copper Raspberry Flourishes Up North Stampin
