Ready for another challenge over at SUO using holiday papers from the 2016 Holiday Catalog?  I decided to use the Halloween Night Designers Series Paper for my project.
  Here is a medallion rosette I made. 

I made the rosette using the Stamping Up Score board.  I cut 2 strips of paper 2" wide and scored them at 1/2" intervals.  I adhered them end to end and fan folded them.  After I had the rosette formed I adhered it to a 2" circle and closed the end.  
My embellishments are silver glimmer paper 2" circle, the vampire using the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and punch, a black tassel and silver glitter ribbon.  The banner is from the 
Sweet Home stamp set and thinlits.

Hope you join me for this holiday paper challenge at SUO Challenges

October is here and I love Halloween.  

The 2016 Holiday Catalog has so many cute Halloween items.  Today I made a card using the Halloween Cookie Cutter stamp set and punch that's featured on page 53.  I used the skeleton image and heat embossed him using white embossing powder.  He really pops layered on the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper.  

The sentiment on my gray banner is from the Mr. Funny Bones stamp set and seems very appropriate.  I also used the bone stamp for my background paper on the top half of the card and the striped paper is DSP Halloween Night.  I alos used the black and orange Halloween Night twine. 

Hope this card inspires you to get crafty for Halloween.  You can order everything to make this card HERE.

Only wish the temperatures would reflect the change of season.  I don't know where you are in this world but in the south US we are still having 90+ temperatures.  Still my favorite season is fall.  I love the change of  the leaves and the cool crisp days after a long hot summer.  By October maybe I will have fall weather here.

Today I wanted to share a treat bag I made using the gift bag punch board.  I used the DSP featured on page 51 of the 2016 Holiday catalog, The  pumpkin background seemed the logical choice for a scarecrow.  I can picture him in the middle of a pumpkin patch scaring away the crows.

The scarecrow is one of the images in the Halloween Cookie Cutter stamp set.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Dapper Denim makers to color him.  You can purchase the Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive makers as a two pack along with the corrdinating Baker's twine and washi tape.  The Kraft rope trim is found on page 13.

You can shop for the items to make this treat bag HERE in my on-line Stampin' Up store.  If you would like a copy of the catalog leave a comment below and send me your name and mailing

I really like the Cookie Cutter  Christmas Bundle on page 6. It includes a punch and a Stamp set.  I made some cute tags using two of the images, 

The punch will cut out both these images.  For an added bonus there is a coordinating Halloween Cookie Cutter stamp set, it's on page 53.  I also made some tags using these images.

I know everyone has been seeing Mason jar projects all over blogger.  Well here is my project using the Stampin' Up Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelit bundle.

I heat embossed the fish using our new copper embossing powder.  The jar was stamped using Pool Party ink.  I also used Pool Party card stock as my base layer.  The polka dot Bermuda Bay is a project life card.  The ribbon is Bermuda Bay stitched ribbon.  I know these two items are retired, but you can still use them.  I wanted to share ways to combine old and new products.

To add value to the Everyday Jars framelits the new Holiday catalog, which goes live September 1, 2016, has two new stamp sets that will coordinate with them.  One is a Halloween themed set and the other is Christmas.

I would like to send a complimentary Holiday catalog to any one that subscribes or is a subscriber.  Just send me an e-mail at with your name and mailing address and I'll get one out to you.

Check back in next week I will be sharing projects made using some of the new products from the Holiday catalog.

HELLO Everyone!

It's time for another challenge using Stampin' Up Only products.  This time the theme is to use things in Nature.  I decided to use the stamp set Hello Kitty.  I love cats and these images are so adorable.  

I used the Designer Series Paper Affectionately Yours.  The paper is double-sided so the layers are using both sides of one sheet.  I stamped the image and used my aqua painter to watercolor.  I layered the happy little kitty onto a 2015-2017 Mint Macaron dollie.  I then adhereded it to the card with dimensionals.  The banner is from the Number Of Years stamp set and the sentiment is from Hello Kitty.  The yellow enamel shapes are the perfect embellishment.  This card was fast and easy.
