September Club Project...Two in One!

I share the card we made for club in THIS POST.  Thought you would want to see the project we made at club this month also, right?!  😁  Well...this month's project was a two in one!  I wanted to show them how they could take the same elements and make a few different things with it...so we made a little treat box AND a fun tag to add to some packaging!  Look how fun and cute...

 
Colors:  Whisper White, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist, Gray Granite, Basic Black
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Gray Granite, Basic Black, Vellum Cardstock
Stamps: Cauldron Bubble, Waterfront (Splatter image)
Tools: Big Shot, Takeout Thinlits, Cauldron Framelits, 1" Circle Punch, Starburst Punch, Heat Tool
Accessories: Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Ribbon Weave, Whisper White embossing powder, Silver Thread

 
Colors:  Whisper White, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist, Gray Granite, Basic Black
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Gray Granite, Basic Black, Vellum Cardstock, Toil & Trouble 12"x12" Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Cauldron Bubble, Waterfront (Splatter image)
Tools: Big Shot, Takeout Thinlits, Cauldron Framelits, 1" Circle Punch, Starburst Punch, Heat Tool
Accessories: Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Ribbon Weave, Whisper White embossing powder, Silver Thread

That box is made with the DARLING Takeout Thinlits.  This box is perfection.  It's pretty tiny...which is perfect for little trick or treaters, classmates, etc.  And it is SOOO cute!!! 

Just a few pics of some of the details...




This Granny Apple Green ribbon is a complete favorite.  Such a fun bright color.  Swoon! 😍  And that cute ghost.  And that splatter image (from the Waterfront stamp set).  I just can't get enough!!!

On to the tag...


You could plop this guy on anything to jazz it up.  That witch hat...LOVE IT!  It's colored with Blends...which are my FAVORITE!  SOOOO easy to use and so beautiful!! 



See how cute it is just on a cello bag with some candy in it?!  Teacher gifts, neighbors, friends, etc.  Such a fun Halloween surprise!!!

September Club Card...Spooky Bat Fun...

Hello!!!  Sorry it's been a bit since I've posted.  I was in the middle of event planning and things going a little busy.  😀  If you have followed me for awhile, you have probably seen me post about my Suite Stampin' Success events that I put on with a friend.  They are a demonstrator get together/training and we sure have a blast.  I will be posting about this latest one soon, but before I do...I want to share my club projects that we did this month!  Today I want to share the fun card we made using my fave Halloween products...the Spooky Sweets bundle!!!  It. Is. So. Good!!!  Check out this fun card...


Colors:  Whisper White, Gorgeous Grape, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Gorgeous Grape, Gray Granite, Daffodil Delight, Sparkle Glimmer Paper
Stamps: Spooky Sweets
Tools: Big Shot, Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder, Frosted Floral Framelits (label), Spooky Bats Punch
Accessories: Basic Black twine, Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon, Silver Mini Sequin Trim

In club I try to work ahead of the holidays, so they can be ready when the holidays come.  However...it's still 85ish degrees where I live, so not so much in the "fall" spirit, if you will.  That...and I LOVE summer and NEVER want it to leave.  Haha.  So this is kind of a bright Halloween card...which I'm a big fan of.  😃

Some of the details...


The moon is punched from the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Swoon!  😍  And those bats are stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock...my total fave!!!


I love adding ribbons and trims for texture, and so loving this fun little swirl behind the focal point.

I hope you enjoy this card!  Let me know if you have any questions!  Would love to help you out!  Or answer any papercrafting/Stampin' Up!/etc. questions that you may have!!!

Thank you so much for visiting!!!

Paper. Is. Gorgeous.  All the papers are on shimmery white paper...it is completely stunning.  Anyway...here is a quick and fun little treat/gift holder that is made with the paper...

This little treat pocket was so easy to make!  It's just a 3" x 6" piece of the flower pattern.  Then 2" x 3" piece of the striped pattern is just sewn onto the bottom of it.  Then add some fun elements and you have a cute little treat pouch!

TGIF Challenge 175 ... Beautiful Tic Tac Toe!!!

It is CHALLENGE time again!  Woot!  I seriously LOVE doing these challenges.  They are such a great way to "click on" that creative brain.  Sometimes it is so nice to have a starting point when you sit down to create.

This week is especially fun because I'm share a few sneak peeks from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!    So want to see?!  Well here goes nothing...


Colors:  Whisper White, Pool Party, Powder Pink
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White Thick, Shimmery White, Pool Party, Vellum Cardstock

I have to admit...I'm kinda in love with this card. Makes my heart smile.  Now...want to see the challenge for the week?!  So you can play along?!  Yay!  I want to see what you make!

The challenge is...drumroll...a fun Tic-Tac-Toe game!!!  You choose your own winning tic-tac-toe combo from any line you want!!!  Check it out:

                          

I picked the far right line: flowers, negative space, and thread.  What do you think?!  😀


I just have to warn you...this flower is ADDICTING!!!  It has so much depth and beauty to it.  For this flower...I inked it up in Flirty Flamingo ink and then took a sponge and added some Mango Melody ink to the center for a little dimension.  Then just stamped.  Beauty!!!

I can't wait to see what you make!!!!  Head on over to the TGIF Challenge blog to play along!!!

Detailed with Love Clear-Mount Bundle

So many fun greetings and elements.  And the punch has THREE punches in one!  There is a corner rounder, a fun corner detail element (that you can see in the top left corner of the card), and a little slot punch for a ribbon on a tag. Lots of fun!!  

Here is a better picture of the corner...


LOVE that little corner punched detail.  SO. Much! Fun!!!  And that oval greeting is cut out perfectly with that stitched oval shape also.  😍


And can we talk about how  much I LOVE how these layers came together.  That fun flower burst image AND the little scallop stamp...heart. Swoon.  😍😍😍

Do you end up giving cash/gift cards for special occasions?!  I know I do!  My one rule is that is has to be wrapped cute.  Haha.  So here's a quick gift bag you could throw a gift card or cash in that is also a lot of fun to make!  Bonus!  Hee.



ColorsWhisper White, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gray Granite, 

Cardstock/Papers Watercolor Paper, Gray Granite

Stamps: Blended Seasons

Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Seasons Framelits, Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2, Aqua Painter

Accessories: Night of Navy Baker's Twine, Gold Library Clips, Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, Colored Doilies, Striped Treat Bags
And yes...I really have had so much fun using the Blended Season Bundle that is only available until Friday!!!  (Let me know if I can help you grab it before it's gone!!!!)


Love using these clips to close the bags also...so they don't have to rip it open to get their gift out.  They could totally re-use it if they wanted!


These Colored Doilies are one of my fave things to use!  The other side is white...so you can use that side if the colors don't work for your project!

I hope you enjoy!  Let me know if you have any questions on anything!!!

Wishing With Blended Seasons...

I'm pretty much all heart-eyed over this card I made with the "Color Your Season" exclusive products.  (Only available through the end of August...or while supplies last if they run out before then!)  So had to share it with  you...



ColorsGray Granite, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Gorgeous Grape
Cardstock/Papers Gray Granite, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, Vellum Cardstock
Stamps: Blended Seasons
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Seasons Framelits, Tailored Tag Punch, Heat Tool
Accessories: Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon, Whisper White Embossing Powder

How fun is this one?!  I actually cut the label out of the card front, and stamped and adhere the flowers to the inside of the card (using dimensionals), so you could see it through the label window on the front of the card.


Just a fun detail that adds some interest.


I love that greeting and the layered elements to it.  That ribbon is SOOOOO 😍😍😍!!

The flower image is colored with the Watercolor Pencils that are available in this exclusive special this month.  And I stamped it onto Watercolor Paper and then colored over the flowers with Wink of Stella glimmer brush.  Just look at the fun shimmer...


I sure hope you enjoyed this card!  Please let me know if you have any questions!!!

Thanks for visiting!!!
