Batty for You!


I have the cutest Halloween card to share with you.  I made it using the Trick or Tweet Stamp Set.  It is super easy to put together too!  Here it is:

Isn't it adorable?  Here's the scoop:

  • The card base is Gorgeous Grape.  I LOVE anytime I can use purple, and this purple is luscious.
  • The 4 x 5 in piece of Gorgeous Grape is stamped with the Marbled Background Stamp with Gorgeous Grape Ink.
  • The bat paper is 1 1/4 in x 4 in.  It is from the Toil and Trouble DSP Paper Pack.
  • The bat paper is adhered to a piece of Basic Black that measures 1 1/2 in. x 4 in.
  • The elephant is from the Trick or Tweet Stamp Set.  I stamped him with Memento Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.  I colored him with the Light Smokey Slate and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.  I then fussy cut him out.
  • The moon is a piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock die cut with one of the Layering Circle Dies.
  • I glued the moon to the back of the elephant and adhered them to my card using Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment is also from the Trick or Tweet Stamp Set.  It's stamped on Whisper White and punched with the Classic Label Punch.  I adhered it to the card front using Mini-Dimensionals.
I hope you have fun with this sweet card!

InKing Royalty Halloween Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty's October Blog Hop! This year's Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs - this month's song is "Monster Mash." As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with fun projects that are inspired by the spookiest night of the year - Halloween. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My card for you today has lots of layers but very little stamping.  As you can see, I had great fun playing with the spooky papers from the Toils and Trouble Designer Series Paper Pack!

Here are the details.

  • My card base is Gorgeous Grape topped by a panel of the same color stamped with the Marbled background stamp.
  • I love the bat background for the shaker part of my card!
  • If you look closely, you can see that I embossed my Window Sheet with the Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  
  • The cauldron is fussy cut from the DSP and so is the banner.
  • The sentiment is from the set Trick or Tweet.
  • I finished my card off with a sparkly bow.
Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hopCandy Ford at Stamp Candy  There's lots of inspiration to be found in this group - and you don't want to miss it!

    Birthday Card for Fab Friday 147


    My card today is for my good friend, Donna whose birthday is tomorrow.  I had a piece of paper left from my Share What You Love Designer Series Paper and I decided to use it today.  It made the perfect banner for the Fab Friday 147 Sketch Challenge.

    Here's my card

    Here's the Fab Friday Banner that was my inspiration.

    Donna will love the embossed card front and the pretty die cut that holds the sentiment.  I hope you do too!

    Happy stampin',

    5th Year Anniversary Reflection

    Today is an exciting day for me! It's my 5th anniversary as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator! Stampin' Up! treats their demos like family. The products are so easy to sell because they are of the highest quality- and the best part? I get to purchase them for myself at a discount!

    Because of being a demonstrator, I have made wonderful friendships with people all over the world. I have the opportunity to see many of them at OnStage events.

    But the best part of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is sharing my love of paper crafting with others. I have grown in confidence as I share more and more.
    Best decision EVER!
