I just love that elegant look. Here are 2 color schemes of the same card. This card was a very simple card to create, with just one ink color, and some designer paper.The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. This is a great stamp set for anyone just beginning to build their stamp collection, and includes 8 sentiments. It was one of the first stamp sets I selected in my Demo Kit.
This basic layout could be created with any theme in mind. With a change of colors & sentiment, it could could be used for many different occasions. And did you notice, I only needed ONE INK COLOR! All supplies used were Stampin' Up!
Have a great week-end!

I stamped the leaf images with Versamark, & embossed with black. The ribbon is retired Black Organdy, sorry:( but I love this ribbon!!! I Used Really Rust & Basic Black Cardstock. The tag uses Very Vanilla with Basic Black Classic ink. I made the tag, as I demonstrated at stamp camp, by cutting a strip of cardstock to width, & bringing up through the bottom of the Tag Punch to make a tag any length. Tied on with string. Really, quite simple! All supplies (except string) Stampin' Up!

The next card was created with the new stamp set, Snow Swirled from the Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalog (pg 32). Cardstock: Pink Pirouette (IN COLOR), Elegant Eggplant, & Whisper White
This project was from the Stampin' Success, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator magazine. It is full of great ideas for us to share with you! Mine was created from a 5 x 6 sheet of designer paper. We used sticky strip to adhere & make a tube. Adhesive on each end, & crimped. Campers left one end open to fill with their special treats when they got home. The tag was attached with the Gold Cord from Holiday Mini catalog, Sentiment is from the Best Yet stamp set (Level 1 Hostess), punched with the 1 1/4 square punch, backed with the Scallop Square punch, attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Well, it is starting to feel like Halloween weather. You know, that cool, rainy, fall weather. So, I thought it fitting to share a couple of Halloween ideas with you.
The 1st post is a card I created for my upcoming stamping event at the Senior Center. I just love sharing craft ideas with them. I designed this card to fit in the standard A2 envelope. The fold is on the left. Card base is Whisper White, I cut the card into the triangle shape, and used the corner rounder to round off the tips. I then added layers of Pumpkin Pie & YoYo Yellow. Very little stamping here, I used the All Holidays stamp set, stamped in Chocolate Chip. I also sponged the edges of the card with Chocolate Chip. The ribbon is the new felt Ribbon Originals, Alpine, from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. I love this new ribbon!!!
Another idea...if you have the new Big Shot die cut machine, you could use the Pennant Bigz die to make this card :)
The next picture is of card candy I receive as a Regional Seminar swap. It was created by Leanna Cardwell. The stamp set is the Eat, Drink & Be Scary set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. If you are not familiar with "Card Candy", these stamped creations can be added to a card or scrapbook page, and with just a little more cardstock, or designer paper, you have a completed project! Very FUN!
I hope today's posts will help you to be inspired to create your "ghooly treats" for Halloween!
All products: Stampin' Up!

I have lots of samples to share with you today!!! The 1st 3 cards were created with the Stampin' Up! Simply Sent Card Elements kit, Handmade Holidays. There are enough supplies in the kit to create 18 cards. The kit includes cardstock, designer paper, & stickers. The instructions are quite simple to follow. To complete the cards, you will also need a stamp set. There is a coordinating set, To You & Yours. The images fit perfectly on the stickers included in the set! On the 1st card, I actually used the Peace stamp from All Holidays! I added the Alpine Ribbon sold in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
On the next 2 cards, I used the stickers in the kit. There was no stamping on the following 2 cards. So, you can do your own thing...or use the kit instructions & coordinating stamp set. Either way, I am sure you will pleasantly surprised by the beauty of these cards! The Simply Sent Card Elements & Card Kits found on pages 176 & 177 in the Fall-Winter Catalog are on sale until October 11th!!! Call me for details, or visit my business web site!
And...if you place a $30 order with me by Oct. 10th, you will be in the Mystery Hostess drawing. You could win a FREE Level 1 Hostess Stamp Set AND $15 in FREE Stampin' Up! Products!!! CALL ME SOON!!!
It is a treat pouch holder using the new Scandinavian Season stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. When I first saw this stamp set, I couldn't look beyond using it for Christmas cards. But, look at this great sample. It doesn't look at all like a Christmas project. That shows the great versatility of this stamp set.
The outside of the treat holder is using the Baja Breeze textured cardstock. The bottom of the treet holder was stamped with the Scandinavian Stampin' Around Wheel. I used the Baja Breeze ink & Aqua Painter to shade it a little. The band is Tangerine Tango. The star was stamped with Stazon ink on watercolor paper. The image was colored using the Aqua Painter (on sale this month) with Old Olive, Baja Breeze, & Tangerine Tango ink. We learned many ways to watercolor...so much fun!!! We also added a brad on the star! The Sentiment is from Fundamental Phrases!
This was a fun, and really quite simple project to complete! Thanks for looking, many more samples to share so come back soon!!!

Isn't this card the cutest!!! Another Make & Take from Regionals.
We used the Best Wishes & More stamp set and stamped the snowflake image on the back of Ruby Red cardstock. We punched 12 holes in the cardstock, using the snowflake as a guide. Organdy ribbon was then pulled through the holes, sewing a ribbon flower. The sentiment is from Fundamental Phrases. Additional cardstock used was So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Bashful Blue designer paper. All supplies, Stampin' Up!
I hope you enjoy today's card. This is a great, simple technique. So much more to share...come back soon for a peak!

This is a "swing card" ! It is a little complicated to cut & fold, but I found the great instructions on SplitCoast Stampers. Look under Resources across the top of the web site. There are so many great tutorials there. They do such a great job with the tutorial, that I would just totally confuse you if I attempted to describe the cuts, folds, & measurements. I downloaded the template (I suggest you do so) and made one as my sample.
I snapped 3 photos so you could get the 3-D effect. (hope you can see that from these pictures)
The cardstock is Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, & Whisper White. Paper piecing on monkey is from the new Bella Rose designer paper. I colored the monkey with Creamy Caramel & Ruby Red markers. Also fininshed off with Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon.
He is soooo much fun, I'm tellin ya!
Have a great day & thanks for peeking!

The Upsy Daisy stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalog is a "must have"! The daisy silhouette is amazing. And, check out this card. Very simple! I inked the stamp with More Mustard & Only Orange markers. Then I sponged Chocolate Chip directly on the rubber. I then stamped the image on So Saffron cardstock. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, inked with Chocolate Chip. Cardstock is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. The base of the card is Cameo Coral. I also used Chocolate Chip cardstock & punched with the new Scallop Edge punch. Also, love that new punch!!! Ribbon is Chocolate Chip Grosgrain.
Even better...the Upsy Daisy stamp set is on sale for 15% off as part of the Never-before-seen stamp sale!!! This sale is now through September 30th. If you would like more information visit my stampin up web site, or call today.

I used the Classy Brassy Template on Whisper White, embossed & punched the square. Then stamped the kitty from Window Dressings with Stazon, & colored with Stampin' Write Markers So Saffron & Chocolate Chip. Additional cardstock used is Not Quite Navy, & So Saffron Designer Paper. Ribbon is Real Red Grosgrain. The sentiment is from Simply Said, another favorite of mine.
I sent this card to a fellow cat lover, & hope she liked it! Also, I hope it inspired you today! Thanks for looking...
