Soooooooooooooo SIMPLE. On a scrap piece of White Cardstock, using Black Ink, stamp the Magnificent Maple. Cut out the image, turn upside down and tape to card. Use your circle punches to add the eyes. Isn’t it great!!

Still the same price $30.00, and you will be making 12 cards each. 2 each of 6 designs. Welcome gift bag for each participant.

I am not one to do cards at all for Hallowe’en but goodness knows there are those of you out there. This card again comes from Demonstrator Shoebox Swap. It was a lot of fun, and I was reminded of how many of you love Hallowe’en. Thank you to Becky for this card.
There are a few steps to creating this beauty, but mostly can be done with baby wipes and re-inkers. Just use your re-inkers and apply a few drops of orange down one side, and then right next to it so they butt up against each other, apply a few drops of another colour (Summer starfruit, or any colour of your choice). Use these inked up baby wipes as your stamp set, and stamp the “Trick or Treat” greeting onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, and the pumpkin set. Next roll your brayer over the baby wipe and run across your Chevron embossed card stock. You can add more ink to your baby wipe if needed. It doesn’t have to be a lot, as it goes a long way.
Becky used the following stamp sets from the Holiday Catalogue:
This card was inspired by Jenn Tinline. I believe Jen used the Dictionary Background stamp set, but as I didn’t have it, I used En Francais. However, you don’t even need to use a stamp set for the background words, you could very easily use a page out of a magazine, or an old book!
To complete the rest of this card, I used the stamp set Million & One, as well as Simply Sketched (hostess stamp set) for the background flower.
Do you notice the black edging on the words? I used the new rotary cutter, and the Tiny Wave blade. If you haven’t seen the Rotary Add on you need to check it out.
This was a rather fun card to experiment with. I haven’t used the circle treat cups in a long time, and then when I saw the Stampin’ Up sampler on page 58 of the 2013-2014 Idea Book and Catalogue, I knew I had to try it again. Just add a little water to the treat cups, I filled mine anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 full, I also added a little bit of dazzling diamonds to water, but unfortunately it doesn’t show up well in this shot. Remove the white sticky strip to expose the sticky part of treat cup. Then using your hot glue gun, run glue around the perimeter of the circle. Make sure there are no gaps in the glue. Then while glue is still hot, put a piece of clear window sheet over top. I then used a clear acrylic block to gently push down to seal the glue in place.
I am still waiting for this month’s Paper Pumpkin Project to arrive. For some reason Fed Ex has it listed as International Shipment, and it hasn’t moved since July 17th. I called Stampin’ Up today and as usual they were incredibly awesome. They are sending out another one, and they said that if for some reason the original shows up I can hang on to it and share it. So if this second one does show up, one of you lucky people will receive it from me for FREE of course! Comment on this card and automatically your name will be entered. If it doesn’t show up, that’s ok, I will come up with another gift for you.All you have to do is leave a comment, and I will contact you by email if you are chosen.
If you want to try Paper Pumpkin click here, it’s easy to get started, you can choose to stop at anytime with NO PENALTIES. The first time you have the kit delivered you will receive a free gift from Stampin; Up.
I recently attended a demonstrator shoe swap. What an amazing time. There were 24 including myself. We each designed a card, cut out 24 packages of ready to be assembled cards and then got together. We spent a few hours making up each of our packages, so I came out with 23 extra designs. I love these demonstrator get togethers, so much talent, and it’s always great to see each other.
Todays card was designed by Jennifer Tinline. I think it’s a pretty classy way to say Thank You to someone.
Jennifer used the Deco Collection Framelit Dies, for the main focal point. First she used the stamp set “Too Kind” and stamped a couple of flowers for the background. She then used Million and One Stamp Set and stamped the greeting in Basic Black ink. For a little extra bling she used 3 rhinestones and put them in each of the swirls. The strip that has the printing is a background stamp set called, Dictionary. Keep in mind, that if you have any old magazines or old books, you can also use that instead of purchasing the stamp.
I recently came across this technique and right away knew I had to try it. It’s actually really easy, and another great way to use small scraps of Designer Series Paper.
8-1/2 x 5-1/2″ Daffodil Delight Cardstock
5-1/4 x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock
4 pieces of 1-1/2 x 4-1/2″ Designer Series Paper ( I used Gingham Garden DSP)
1/2″ Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon
Sassy Salutations Stamp Set
Daffodil Delight Ink
Melon Mambo Ink
Putting your card together
Put one of your 1-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ pieces of DSP into your trimmer. Match up one top corner to the opposite bottom corner and cut diagonally.
Repeat this step to the other 3 pieces.
Use a sponge and Daffodil Ink and ink up the 2 long edges of your sunburst pieces.
Starting at the side of your Whipser White cardstock, start lining the pieces so they cover the top half of the card. Your pieces WILL go off the side of the white cardstock, and may slightly overlap where they meet at the bottom.
Once you have the pieces laid out to your satisfaction, tape down.
Turn the White Cardstock with the sunburst pieces over so you are looking at the wrong side.
Use your trimmer to cut off the pieces of DSP that go beyond the White.
Tie a bow and wrap around the bottom edge where the DSP is lined up.
Attach to your Daffodil Yellow Cardfront.
Use Melon Mambo Ink to stamp your greeting.
You can easily change this card up using any colour combination.
Continuing with Timeless Talk, this is 2nd of 3 designs in the set. Black and White always seems to be so elegant. Who knew I would be calling a Bike elegant? Oh well! The Chevron Ribbon is also new to the catalogue, To spice up the card I tied White Bakers Twine around the ribbon.
