Quick and easy Holiday Haul fall card

This week's product of the week is Holiday Haul.  It is a hostess set.  That means the only way you can get it is to invite some friends over and have a party or place a $150+ order. 
I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso.

Do you recognize the paper I used?  It's the back side of the Monster Bash Halloween paper. I love the versatility of the Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper!

Here's a link to the video showing you how I made this card:

Merry Moose meets Most Wonderful Time

I wasn't going to get the Merry Moose bundle....until I saw so many cute cards with it.  And I love a bundle with a punch - so easy to make cards! For this card I paired the Merry Moose bundle with the Most Wonderful Time product medley.  This product medley has so many gorgeous things. I love the Designer Series Paper.  And Stampin' Up was very smart with the present stamps and dies. The stamps have all 3 presents together as well as all 3 bows together.  Then there is one die that cuts them all out.  So you end up with 3 cute presents that you can place wherever you want on your card - brilliant!

Merry Moose bundle

Here's the card I came up with using Merry Moose and Most Wonderful Time
I used a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Old Olive, scored at 4 1/4. The DSP on the front is cut to 4 x 5 1/4. I die cut a stitched oval out of vellum and punched the moose out of Gold Foil. I added a little of the tinsel ribbon to the moose's antlers. I took one of the sticker trees and added it with a dimensional to the front, put one of the stars on top and the front of the card was done!

The only stamping I did was on the inside. I took the smaller tree from the Merry Moose set and stamped it several times in Old Olive.  I also stamped the sentiment in Old Olive.

And here's a link to the Youtube video where I show you how I made this card. It really is quick and easy!

Wiggle Worms

I've had so much fun playing with the Wiggle Worms bundle this week.  Here are the fun cards I created:
I love the Brights DSP with this set. Such a perfect match! This is
Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.

Don't you love this new Birch background stamp!

More Brights DSP - this time with Coastal Cabana
and Bermuda Bay

This cute ladybug would be great to give to anyone!
This bundle is not just for kids.

This is the card I demonstrated on Facebook Live last night. 
I got the fancy fold from TX Stampin Sharon. She made a
beautiful wedding card. 

These are the measurements I used:
Front -
   Whisper White - 3 x 2 3/4 
   Granny Apple Green - 3 1/4 x 3
   Mango Melody card base - 4 1/4 x 11; scored at 5 1/2 and 6 1/2

Inside -
   Whisper White - 4 x 3 3/4

Designer Series Paper

I love all the gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Holiday Catalog!  Here are a few cards I made or received in swaps that showcase some of this beautiful paper.
This uses the Country Lane DSP. A perfect
match for the Country Home stamp set.

Some more Country Lane - sometimes you just
need a little strip.

More Country Lane - I love it with
the Tile embossing folder.

This is also from the Country Lane DSP.
Quite a different look than the earlier florals.
I love how Stampin' Up pairs a colorful
design with a more muted design on the back.

I received this in a swap from Heather
Robinson.  This is the Santa's Workshop
DSP - some of the designs are flocked!

I also received this in a swap. This
gorgeous paper is from the All is
Bright DSP. Love the realistic patterns.

I made this card for a swap. It
uses a little bit of the Toil & Trouble
DSP.  I stamped these bats, but there
is a design in this paper with bats that
you can also punch out.

Another swap card, this is from Kitty Seyffer.
It uses the beautiful Festive Farmhouse DSP. 
I love all the plaids!

And don't forget - you can get the Dashing Along DSP free with a $250 order/party.  Only a few more days left of this promotion.  Here are a few cards from Stampin' Up using this fun paper:

Halloween Treats

We had so much fun at our Halloween Treats class last night!  All of our projects used the new Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper. Here's the cute treat containers we made:

I found this cute container online from the
Paper Pixie. The cat is from the Cauldron
Bubble set. There are matching framelits
which makes it easy to cut out that 
adorable cat.

The framelits also cut out this cauldron
from the Designer Series Paper. There is a matching
stamp, so you can color your own cauldron if you
prefer.  Add a couple of strips of cardstock, a gold
library clip and a little ribbon and you have a fun
treat container.

This is the new Takeout Treats die. The bats
are from the Spooky Sweets stamp set and
there is a punch that matches. An easy way to
add some spooky bats to your projects!

Here are a few more Takeout Treat containers that my friend Virginia designed for a retreat that I went to this last weekend.
A cute Thanksgiving treat box waiting
to hold some Tootsie Rolls

I love how Virginia turned this one
upside down for a different look.

Yum!  That sentiment comes from the 
Takeout Treats stamp set that goes with the 
framelit set.

If you need a cute container to give a special someone some treats, this Takeout Treats bundle is just what you need. 

Takeout Treats Clear-Mount Bundle

The item number is 149990 and the cost for the bundle is $49.50. That's enough to get you the Santa's Workshop Enamel Shapes free if you order by Sept. 25th.  If you order online, use hostess code KKKN4249

Falling for Leaves

I've had so much fun playing with my Falling for Leaves bundle. Here are a few cards I've made or received in swaps.
I love all the copper products we have. This
card uses copper embossing powder, copper
foil paper and copper shimmer paint!

My friend Virginia made this gorgeous card. I love
our team swaps - I always come home from with so
many lovely cards!

We made this card in my Holiday Kick-off
class. We used an aqua painter and ink pads
to color the big leaf. Add a couple of punched
leaves behind it and it's a great focal point.

My friend Kay made this card. All 
those beautiful die cuts leaves are a part of this bundle.
Another gorgeous card I received in a swap!

I sent this to everyone who came to my Holiday Kick-off
as a thank you card.  You can't tell from the picture, but
there's lots of sparkle.  I put some of the copper shimmer 
paint in a spritzer with some rubbing alcohol. I spritzed the
tiled background and the big yellow leaf.  I also took a sponge
and sponged some copper shimmer paint around the smaller
Cajun Craze leaves. I've ordered all the other colors of
shimmer paint so I'm sure you'll be seeing lots more of it!

Country Home

I've had fun playing with one of the new suites from the Holiday Catalog.  I used the Country Home stamp set, Country Lane Designer Series Paper and the Tin Tile dynamic embossing folder (my favorite new product).  
Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry - and my favorite
embossing folder!

Early Espresso and Crushed Curry

Copied this from Pinterest.  Not sure who designed it. Looks like
it was uploaded by Lorin Goodchild. The card base is
Mint Macaron and I colored the flowers with blends.

I also copied this one from Pinterest - from Mikel-Ann King.
Love the chicken wire behind it!  Also colored with blends.

The card base for this is Crushed Curry. I used some
of the new Galvanized metallic paper for the tin tile
strip.  To me it's like a silver shimmery white paper.
Very pretty in person.  More coloring with blends.
They are so fun to use with this set and the Holiday
catalog has some new colors. I used the new Cajun Craze
and Blackberry Bliss with these cards.
