Washing on the Board (Chipboard, That Is)

I loved this project. I designed it for my stampers this month for our Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape Stamp Camp.

Washi Tape Ideas-Door Hanging

First off, we did the direct to paper (in this case, chipboard) technique with Wisteria Wonder.  Then we embossed the image from the Toil & Trouble stamp set in black.  Added some washi tape, punched a hole and put in ribbon, and added a little sparkly skull and crossbones at the bottom.  A perfectly fun and simple 3D item to hang on a door, cabinet, or Halloween tree!

This image is a quote from a famous William Shakespeare play.  I’ve got a stack of 10 pieces of rectangle chipboard that will be delivered to the first stamper who correctly names the play this quote is from.  Please leave a comment below with your name and the play.  (Comments are moderated, but are timed so I’ll know who is the first one.)

Spooky Bingo Bits Peekaboo Frame Halloween Card

The new Peekaboo Frame die for our Big Shot machine is one of the best new products in the Holiday Mini Catalog!  Here is an example of it with the Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set (which fits the littler frames PERFECTLY).

Here is a close-up view of the "peekaboo" section:

I used the direct-to-paper technique with Wisteria Wonder ink on the Wisteria Wonder card stock.  I am obsessed with scrunching ribbon with my Sticky Strip.  This time I added a little bling on each end with a basic gem.  I stamped my RIP in Elegant Eggplant and punched it out with my 1-3/8" circle punch.  I adhere that piece down first and then used mini glue dots to adhere the frame down. 

Keep in mind when you use the Peekaboo Frame die, you should only be using one piece of card stock at a time as it does cut and score.

PS….did you know this month you can receive a BIG SHOT for FREE?  All you have to do is sign up to be a recruit and purchase the kit for $175 (with a product value of over $350).  Most of this kit is customizable…plus you then get the FREE BIG SHOT (which is worth $99+).  What a great time to join the Stampin' Up! family!  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me.  I'd love you on my team!

A Long Farewell to Simply Said

I'm saying farewell to another long-standing favorite, Simply Said.  This was a fabulous go-to stamp set! 

Here is an example using the Polka Dots embossing folder.

My stampers know I love to mix in Chocolate Chip with pinks and blues.  Here is an example with a wheeled section:

Another reason why I loved this stamp set is it worked well with techniques as there were bold images and fine line images in the stamp set.  Here is a card using the Vanilla Double and the Direct to Paper techniques.

Lovely as a Tree Direct to Paper Technique

When I created yesterday's card, I wanted to give a spookier feel to the trees, so I used the direct to paper technique for this card.  You can add as little or as much ink to the background as you desire!

This is a simple card – but don't you just love that Top Note die!
