Halloween Wrap Up

Hi Stampers!

I know it has been a while.  I was without power and Internet for a little over a week due to Hurricane Sandy.  Thankfully, we are all safe and have no damage to our property, which is fortunate considering how close we are to areas that were really devastated.  If anyone is looking for a place to make donations/volunteer in the NJ Bayshore area, please contact me and I can give you some information.

So since there was a delay, I was unable to post all of my remaining Halloween projects.  Below you can find the remaining projects from the Halloween season.  Soon I will begin posting some Fall and Christmas projects, so stay tuned for many new ideas for your holiday crafting!

Here is one of the cards that I sent out to friends and family for Halloween.  It's a variation on an earlier card I made.  To see the first card, click here.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Frightening Feline
Ink: Versamark
Cardstock/Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade, Elegant Eggplant, Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper
Other: 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon, Window Frames Framelits, Festive Paper Piercing Pack, Piercing Tool, Piercing Mat, Heat Tool, Gumball Green Embossing Powder, Googlies, Dimensionals, 3/8" Designer Printed Brads

Up next are some bottle wrappers I had originally made for some customers who were attending a Halloween class.  This project features some of last year's Halloween themed Designer Series Paper.  It can be found on the Clearance Rack.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Monster Munchies
Paper: Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series Paper, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Other: 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Dimensionals

The last project I am going to be featuring today is the favor that I made for those who attended my Googly Ghouls card class.  My fellow demonstrators may recognize this as one of the projects featured in our demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success.  It's one of the best perks of being a demonstrator.  If you would like to see what the magazine is like, click here for a taste of what the articles are!  If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator, email me!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Googly Ghouls
Ink: Versamark, Jet Black StazOn
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White
Other: Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit, Dimensionals, Black Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Petite Pocket Bigz XL die

That's all I have for today.  I hope you enjoyed the last few spooky projects I have for you!  Now it's time to bid the Ghouls farewell and move on to some new holiday projects!

Rhode Island Regional Swap #3

Today is the last day of my full reveals of the swaps I made for Regionals.  Are you sad???  Don't worry!  My next post will feature projects from my Button Buddies class as well as a sneak peek at the upcoming Embellished Events class.

My final swap was one I made for an organized swap with the ladies of SUDSOL.  I wanted to make a fun Halloween card that featured a lot of the new products from the Holiday Catalog.

I apologize for the off centering of this photo!  I made a big boo boo and accidentally deleted the full image of this card front.  Don't you hate when you do that?  I went with this picture instead because you can see the most of the card front!

Are you wondering what new products are featured here?  See the Stampin' Supplies list below.  Anything with a * next to it is new and featured in the Holiday Catalog.

Have you ever worked on a project and wanted just the right type of ribbon but didn't have it?  Maybe a patterned ribbon, or one in a specific color?  One that has a sentiment on it?  Then the new 7/8" Cotton Ribbon is for you!

This ribbon is so great because you can stamp on!  It works beautifully with our Classic Stampin' Pads. The Border Banter stamp set is made just for this purpose, but there are no limits to what you can stamp on the ribbon.  My favorite is stamping the sentiment on the ribbon.  I think it just adds an extra special touch to your project.

Stampin' Tip!
To make a very faint pattern on the ribbon, as I have done here with the Gumball Green chevron pattern, ink up your stamp and then stamp it off on a piece of scratch paper (or Stampin' Up! Grid Paper!) and then stamp on the ribbon.  This give you a subtle hint of color and pattern.  Try it out!  

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
DSP: Howlstooth and Scaringbone*
Ink: Gumball Green, Basic Black, Versamark, Tangerine Tango (for sponging)
Stamps: Toxic Treats*, Border Banter*
Other: Labels Collection Framelits, Gumball Green Embossing Powder*, 7/8" Cotton Ribbon*, Heat tool, Sponge dauber
