Stampin’ Up! Spooktacular Sale

Hello all!

Well today is the day!  Stampin' Up! is offering 15% off all stamps (excluding hostess stamps, digital stamps, and stamps in a product bundle). 

I am sweetening the deal with my customers for an additional 5% off!  You can shop online until 11:59 pm (it will get very busy at that time) or call me and place it before 9:00 pm.

I also thought I would post a bunch of recent class samples to get your creative juices going.  I'll be posting several times today so be sure to come back and see everything!

I really don't want the Halloween season to end because that would mean I would have to put away one of my all-time favorite stamp sets – Googlie Ghouls.  Oh, how I have loved this stamp set since it was introduced in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Here is one of my favorite cards made with this set –

 

Googlie Ghouls Trio

I used the Web embossing folder with some silver shimmer paint in the background. 

For all those in Frankenstorm's path – stay safe.  We are all praying for you!

Bubble Wrap Witchy Poo

Woo Hoo!  It is October!  I love this time of year.  Sadly, gone are the school trips to the pumpkin farms as my boys in middle and high school.  We'll still visit a pumpkin farm later this month, but now they can lift their own pumpkin and it doesn't take all day to find just the right one.

At last month's Technique Tuesday class, I taught the bubble wrap background technique.  It is super easy – and you can use any size of bubble wrap.  Just resist the temptation to pop it!

We used a brayer to get the ink on the bubble wrap.  Turn the inked-up bubbble wrap onto card stock and press down. 

Googlie Ghouls is my new favorite Halloween set because I can easily make fun and quick cards!  Here is the card we made:

Label Framelits Tombstone Card

Oh, I couldn't wait to share this card!  We made at my Die Cut Diva Stamp Camp this week.  It is SUPER easy and perfect for a Halloween invitation! 

Die Cut Diva-tombstone card

All you need to do is use our Labels Framelits with your Big Shot and only roll the die about halfway through.  Stop and roll back so as not to send the die completely through the machine.  Trim the edges with your cutter – or scissors if you are confident in your cutting skills :).

I spritzed the tombstone using our new Stampin' Spritzer (filled halfway with 90% rubbing alcohol and about 10 drops of Platinum shimmer paint).  It dries very quickly!  Stamp the spider and the Boooo from the Googlie Ghouls stamp set (in the Holiday Mini), and then stamp the bat and cut out and pop up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Add our new striped satin ribbon  (in the Holiday Mini), adhere the pieces, and you are all set.  You could easily add a phrase at the top for an invitation or even stamp RIP with an alphabet set.
