Stampin' Up Halloween Sticky Note Holder, Halloween Night DSP, Spooky Fun, Mr. Funny Bones, Halloween Scares, Sweet & Sassy

Happy Halloween everyone!!!  It's a chilly morning this morning with frost on the pumpkin.  The deer are really moving this morning.  I've seen many grazing on the grass already this morning in the back yard.  It's also becoming foggy as the sun shines through.  Hope it wears off quickly.

My share for today is a Halloween Sticky Note Holder that I saw on Angie Juda's blog .  Angie is one of my all time FAVE and very talented Stampin' Up Demonstrators and today is her 14th Anniversary with Stampin' Up.  Congratulations Angie!

The Stampin' Up products I used are Halloween Night Designer Series Paper, Spooky Fun and Mr. Funny Bones Stamp Sets, Halloween Scenes Edgelits and Sweet & Sassy Circle Framelits Dies and Pumpkin Pie & Basic Black Baker's Twine.

Here's my take on Angie's Halloween Sticky Note Holder:


I watched Angie's video and created the holder from Basic Gray Cardstock.  *** I did trim out the following pieces of cardstock and adhere them to the holder with Mono Multi Purpose Glue (before I assembled the holder).


I trimmed out a piece of the Brick paper from Halloween Night Designer Series Paper at 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" for the bottom of the holder.  ***This piece was adhered to the holder before the holder was assembled.


I trimmed out a piece of the Bat paper at 3-1/4" x 3-1/2" for the inside of the pocket of the holder.  ***This piece was adhered to the holder before the holder was assembled.


Using SU's Sweet & Sassy Circle Framelits Dies, I die cut a 1-7/8" Circle from  Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and a 1-5/8" Circle from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the two Circles together with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies, I die cut the Witch from Basic Black Cardstock, adhered it to the Glimmer Paper Circle with Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered it to the top of the holder with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


Using SU's Spooky Fun Stamp Set, I stamped the Pumpkins onto Pumpkin Pie Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink, die cut them out with SU's Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies and adhered them to the bottom right corner with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I wrapped SU's Pumpkin Pie & Basic Black Baker's Twine around the Pocket 3 times and tied it off into a knot.  I tied a triple bow and adhered it over the knot with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Mr. Funny Bones Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment onto the top of the Sticky Notes Pad with Basic Black Archival Ink.

 
Here's a side picture of the Sticky Note Holder.


I put my Sticky Notes and a small Gel Pen (purchased from a dollar store) in the pocket.  It's now all done and ready to be given away as a gift.

 
Thanks so much Angie for the video.  I can't wait to make a Christmas Sticky Note Holder. And, Congrats again, Angie, on your Fourteen Year Anniversary with Stampin' Up!!!  That's so cool!!!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Stampin' Up Spooky Fun, Jar of Haunts, A Little Foxy, Halloween Night, Festive Birthday, Fox, Owl & Holly Berry Builders, Sweet & Sassy Circles, Layering Ovals

Goodness, I can't keep up with my two black cats, Boris and Natasha.  The cooler weather has them just flying through the house chasing one another.  They are so quick and so fun to watch.  I think that I will always have 2 cats...they keep each other company and me laughing.

My share today is a card I designed for a Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie.  Actually, I mailed it to Kadie's cat, Monster, and signed it from my 2 cats, Boris and Natasha.  I'm hoping it gives Kadie and others a BIG smile!

The Stampin' Up products that I used are Spooky Fun and Jar of Haunts Stamp Sets, A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper,  Festive Birthday DSP, Fox Builder, Owl Builder and Holly Berry Builder Punches and Sweet & Sassy Circles and Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.

Let's take a look:


I made Natasha on the left.  Her eye's are a little closer together than her Brother, Boris.  And, Boris is on the right, he has a little different nose so I put his up-side-down.  Aren't they sweet!!!

My card base is Basic Black Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2".

My card front panel is Pumpkin Pie Cardstock cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and adhered to my card base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

My second card front panel is Elegant Eggplant Cardstock cut at 3-3/4" x 5" and adhered to the first card front panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


For the moon in the background, I used SU's Sweet & Sassy Circle Framelits Dies to cut a 2" Circle from Crushed Curry Cardstock and 1-5/8" Circle from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.  

Using SU's Spooky Fun Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto the Pumpkin Pie Circle and adhered the two circles together and to my card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue. 


Using SU's Classic Label Punch, I punched 12 Labels from the Gray Wood piece of SU's A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Pack.  I adhered 10 of the labels with Mono Multi Purpose Glue across the bottom of my card to look like a fence .

I adhered two of the labels across the front of the fence with small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I punched 3 dots using my 1/4" Handheld Circle Punch, colored around the edges with my Basic Gray Stampin' Write Marker and adhered them with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above. 
 

For the Cat's Body: Using SU's Fox Builder Punch, I punched the pieces from Basic Black and Blushing Bride Cardstock and assembled them as shown in the picture above.

For the Cat's Eyes:  Using SU's Owl Builder Punch, I punched the two smallest dots from Basic Black Cardstock and the largest dots from the Crushed Curry piece in Festive Birthday DSP. 

Using SU's Holly Berry Punch, I punched two Bows from two pieces of Halloween Night DSP, adhered them under each cat's neck with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and added a Pumpkin Pie Circle Enamel Shape to each Bow.


For the inside of my card, using SU's Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, I die cut one Scalloped Oval from Basic Black Cardstock and one Oval from Whisper White Cardstock.

Using my Wink of Stella Brush, I brushed around the edges of the Scalloped Oval. 

Using SU's Jar of Haunts Stamp Set, I stamped the Sentiment on the Whisper White Oval with Basic Black Archival Ink and adhered both Ovals to the inside of my card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I punched another Tail and Head from Basic Black Cardstock and went around them with my Wink of Stella Brush.  I adhered them to the edge of the Scalloped Oval with Mono Multi Purpose Glue. 

I punched another Bow and a 1/4" dot for under the cat's neck.


I LOVE how my cat's turned out and I LOVE my Boris and Natasha!

I hope Monster enjoyed his card and that it made for a lot of BIG smiles!!!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Stampin' Up Something Good To Eat Paper Pumpkin September 2016

Ugh!  It got cold last night.  It dipped down into the low 30's and it's only 39 and almost noon already.  There's a good sized storm moving our way and there may even be some snowflakes mixed in with the rain tonight.  They said if there was snow that it wouldn't stick so that's o.k. with me!!!

My share for today is Stampin' Up's Something Good to Eat Paper Pumpkin Kit from September.  I know, I am behind again!  I used a lot of Stampin' Up products with my Alternate projects so I won't list them all today!  If I had more time......

Let's take a look:


The Something Good To Eat Paper Pumpkin Kit includes:
Something Good To Eat Photopolymer Stamp Set
16 Plastic Food Safe Test Tubes
3 Sheets of adhesive Banners
3 Sheets of printed die cut Labels
5 Yards of Linen Thread
35 Adhesive Dots

The Coordinating Stampin' Up colors are Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede.


I filled my Test Tubes with two different kinds of Nerds candy and some Skulls and Bones Sweet Tarts.


And, then I went crazy and made all these Test Tube Holders!!!  I found a tutorial on Splitcoasters and couldn't resist making up a bunch of them.  Here's the link below:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/testtubeholder/








On the last two holders, I attached the Labels from the Something Good to Eat Paper Pumpkin Kit.

I used all Stampin' Up products.  Since I didn't list them out for you, if you have any questions, please e-mail me at dodge3670@aol.com.  I'd be happy to answer any questions that you have regarding my designs, projects or cards.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Stampin' Up Season of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin Kit October 2016 - Alternate Card III

Stampin' Up's Season of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin Kit for October is just one of my FAVE Paper Pumpkin Kits.  I LOVE Fall and LOVE designing with Leaves!!!

The kit included:  
Season of Gratitude Stamp Set
Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Spot
8 Kraft Card Bases
8 Printed Envelopes
8 Window Sheets
8 Vanilla Embossed Sheets
5 Sheets Die Cut Elements
5 Yards Green Baker's Twine
Sequins (3 Sizes in 4 Colors)
2 Sheets Foam Adhesive Strips (2 Sizes)
150 Adhesive Dots    


My share for today is an Alternate Stampin' Up Season of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin card that I designed.

Let's take a look:


First, here is the first shaker card that I made per the kit's instructions.


Here is the second card that I made per the kit's instructions.


And, here is one of the Alternate cards that I designed.

I cut one of the envelopes at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and adhered it to one of the card bases with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I adhered one of each of the die cut squares to my card front panel as shown in the pictue above. 


I used one of the embossed pieces with the Leaves punched out (negative piece) as a Stencil.  I put the Leaf Stencil down on top of a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and stamped the Leaf veins over each negative Leaf with Chocolate Chip Ink.  I used a lot of pressure on the stamp so that the ink would get down into the negative Leaf image.


Using my Aqua Painter and Delightful Dijon, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze Ink Pads, I water colored the Leaves and let them dry.  I fussy cut out the Leaves and adhered them to the corresponding squares with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  

I really LOVE how the leaves turned out.  It's kind of neat how the Chocolate Chip Ink moved around on the leaves too!
  


I stamped my Sentiment in the bottom right corner with Chocolate Chip Ink.  I love the Sentiments in the Season of Gratitude Stamp Set.


And, of course, I adhered two groups of three of each size of the Sequins next to my Leaves using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
