Fall Fest Halloween Favors


These Halloween party favors are super cute and easy to make too! 

Directions:
  • Insert a Halloween pencil into a Stampin' Up! 1 x 8" cello bag. The 1 x 8" bags are the perfect size to hold either M&M's or a pencil. I bought a pack of 12 pencils at the Dollar Store. 
  • Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 2" x 4" and score and fold in half. (folded size 2" x 2")
  • Staple over the top of the cello bag as the topper.
  • Decorate...I used the Good Greetings stamp set and the Fall Fest Bundle to embellish my toppers. 

Tip:  
Use a Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to draw a face on the ghost and to add little dots on the sentiment tags.

Grateful for You - Holiday Home Bundle


Holiday Home Bundle
Today I made another card with the Stampin' Up! Holiday Home stamp set and die bundle. I love creating little scenes with these stamps. And the dies make it so easy to cut out the little houses so they can be "popped" off the page with Stampin' Dimensionals for added depth.

Blendabilities and Markers
I colored the house with Stampin' Up! Blendabilities in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. I still need a little practice to get my shading right but I think it looks pretty good and our cards don't have to be perfect...just pretty :-)

To get the fall leaf effect, I colored the leaf stamp with  Stampin' Write markers in multiple colors and then stamped my page repeatedly.

A Batty Halloween Holiday Home


Batty for Holiday Home
I am batty for the Stampin' Up! Holiday Home stamp set. With 3 house stamps, 5 sentiment stamps, and 16 little "decor" stamps, you are covered from Halloween thru Christmas. The stamps are photopolymer so it's a cinch to stamp little scenes like the one on this card...you can see exactly where you are stamping.

Although I didn't use them on today's card, coordinating house dies are also available. And when you purchase both the stamps and framelit dies in a bundle, you save 15%!

Festival of Trees and Washi Tape Christmas Card


Washi Tape Fun
Today I had fun playing with washi tape. Have you ever used it? I'm slightly ashamed to say that today was my first time. Instead of designer paper, I tore off pieces of Stampin' Up! All is Calm Designer washi tape and laid them side by side down the center of my cardstock. Then I added a piece of Pool Party cardstock which I tore on all four sides to mimic the torn look of the washi tape. 

Festival of Trees Bundle
The trees on this card were created with the Festival of Trees stamp set and punch bundle. I appreciate these bundles so much. I hate to cut things out (I have awful scissor skills), but with the coordinating punch that comes in the bundle, I just have to line up my image and punch...so easy!

I stamped and punched the Christmas trees. The photopolymer stamps are awesome! I am definitely loving them. They make two-step stamping so easy! 

Stamping Tip:
I find it works best to stamp the embellishment stamp first and then add the base layer...I think it's easier to see and line the stamped images up this way.
