Spooky Fun!

spooky-fun-1-0816Are you like me?  Does life seem to get away from you?  I haven’t actually been stressed this week but I haven’t got as much done as I’ve wanted to get done or should have got done.

I have this great notepad that I can list everything that needs to get done each day.  I’m really good at writing on it but somehow I manage not to look at it during the day.  Sheesh!  Oh well, I can only improve, right?  🙂

spooky-fun-treat-0916This Halloween card is the last one that we made in our Fall/Halloween class.  I really like that spooky tree, don’t you?  It’s the perfect background for the adorable pumpkins and the spooky little bats.  The Halloween Scenes Edgelits are so fun and they coordinate with quite a few of the images from the Spooky Fun stamp set.   You know how I love COORDINATION!  🙂

Halloween is coming up FAST!  Yikes!  I really want to play with all of my Halloween products more but I’m in the midst of planning Christmas classes!  Ah….the work of demonstrator is never done.  Ha!

I hope you have a spooky fun day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

Halloween Scenes Spooky Fun!

img_8783Cute and easy for a Sunday morning!

Don’t you just love this spooky tree from the Halloween Scenes Edgelits? Too fun.  One of my sister Stampin’ Demos, Carn Meagher, here in Colorado made this spooky card.  Thank you Carn!

I never would have thought about layering a second die under the black tree for a shadow effect but it works perfectly!  Thanks for the tip Carn!

It looks like Carn die cut a square and sponged in the opening for her background before stamping a few spooky bats from the Spooky Fun stamp set.    The banner looks like it was punched using the Duet Banner Punch.  Then, and here’s your tip for the day…..Carn bent her sentiment to fit onto banner!  Yep!  You can do that with Photopolymer stamps.  Pretty cool, huh?  🙂

Thanks again Carn for a fun and easy card!

Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!

Technique Tuesday: Angled Z-Fold

spookyfunanglezfold-1So…it’s actually Wednesday today.  I had this post all ready to go for yesterday and managed to not actually schedule it to post.  Sheesh!  Well, now you can enjoy Technique Tuesday on Wednesday!  🙂

Isn’t this card fun?  I received in a swap.  Thank you Jennifer Pukah!

This card is so cute and so easy to make!  You do need to start with a 12″ x 12″ piece of card stock.  Cut it to 5″ x 12″.  Mark one short end at 2 1/2″.  Now draw a line from the corner of the 5″ end down to the mark you just made.  Trim along line to make the angle of the card.

Score card stock at 4″ and 8″.   Make a valley fold at the 4″ mark and a mountain fold at the 8″ mark.  Your Z-fold card is done!  Now you just need to decorate!

spookyfunanglezfold-2Notice in the other pictures I’ve included that on one side of the card you decorate the first and third panels and on the opposite side you decorate the middle panel.

I’m definitely going to have to design my own Z-fold card.  They’re so fun!

Have you checked out the Halloween Night Designer Series Paper yet?  There are so spookyfunangledzfold-3many cute patterns I can’t even choose which one is my favorite.  How about you?

Have a wonderful day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!




Spooky Fun!

spooky-fun-2-0816Are you ready for Halloween?  I’m not!  It’s still over 6 weeks away!  I do have to admit I’ve been hitting the Halloween candy aisle at the grocery store.  No, I’m not trying to gain weight….I’m creating Halloween treat projects and for that I need Halloween candy.  It is a no-win situation though because I don’t necessarily use all of the candy in a project and then there’s left overs that are calling my name.  Can you feel my pain?  I am a little disappointed though…I’ve been searching for Halloween colored M & M’s and I can’t find them.  Crazy!

I love the tree die in the Halloween Scenes Edgelits set.  Too fun.  There’s also a fun fence that I could have/should have added to the card.  Hmmm….maybe I’ll have to remake this.  The witch die and the grave stones are also in the set.  This set of dies COORDINATES with the Spooky Fun stamp set.  You know me and COORDINATION!  🙂

Do you like the little grave stone that I made for the sentiment?  I thought I was pretty clever with that one.  I used a die from the Tags & Labels Framelits!  After I die cut the image and stamped my sentiment I distressed the label with some stamping and sponging.  I cut it down a bit and then used my Project Life Corner Punch to round the corners.

I need to sit down and play with more of my Halloween toys from the Holiday Catalog.  So many fun items!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

Simple Saturday: A Sneak Peek

Halloween.1.0816It’s Simple Saturday AND a sneak peek!  How great is that?!!!  🙂

Stampin’ Up! has fabulous designer paper and what better way to make a simple card than to use it as the focal point or background of your card.

I couldn’t resist making these little fun and easy 3″ x 3″ cards.  They are both made with the Halloween Nights Designer Series Paper that you will find in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  The little haunted house scene is printed in strips over and over again on the 12″ x 12″ sheet.  I simply trimmed out one little tiny scene, mounted it on a slightly larger piece of Basic Black card stock and then popped that up on my card.

The spider web card is only slight my involved.  The little spider web, spiders and words are from the Spooky Fun stamp set.  They fit perfectly on my little 3″ x 3″ card.  I added some layers and now I have a fun little spooky card!

The Halloween Nights Designer Paper pack is full of fun and spooky designs.  I know you’re going to love it.  If you don’t have a copy of the upcoming Holiday Catalog you can request one from me (cindy@stampbystampcreations.com) or check online on September 1st.  I know you’re going to love it!

Have a fun and Simple Saturday!  Enjoy!
