Happy Halloween ….

This may not be the traditional Halloween colors but it sure makes me Happy about Halloween. Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green have become two of my favorite NEW Stampin’ Up! colors and I was excited to see them featured in the Toil & Trouble Halloween Designer Series Paper.

I started with a 5 1/2′ X 8 1/2″ piece of whisper white card stock, scored at 4 1/4″, I stamped the stars in gorgeous grape and granny apple green classic ink along the top. Next I added a 2 strips of designer series paper, 1″ X  5 1/2″ & 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, The Happy Halloween was stamped in memento black ink in the lower right corner.

To finish it off I punched out a basic black starburst shape and attached a witches hat that I had cut out of the designer series paper and adhered it to the card base. I wrapped a piece of the black bakers twine around the card and tied a bow adding in a 3″ piece of the black sequins trim.

If you are looking for a quick card this one is perfect, you can change-up the papers and ink and get a totally different look!

This past week I have been sharing mostly Halloween treats but I’m switching it up for a couple of days and will be sharing a few cards I have created….not to say that any card idea can’t be made into a treat or even a scrapbook page!

My first card features the Buffalo Check background stamp, Spooky Treats Bundle and the Warm Hearted Hostess set. I love this bold black and white with a touch of Granny Apple Green color palette, you could easily change it up with your favorite colors.


To get started you will need:

  • basic black card stock -cut 1 at 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
  • whisper white card stock– cut 1 at 4″ X 5 1/4″, die cut 1 (2 1/8″) stitched shape square, cut 1 at 3 3/4″ X 5″ (inside)
  • granny apple green– cut 1 at 2 1/4″ X 2 1/4″, cut 1 at 4″ X 5 1/4″ (inside)
  • black foil sheet– die cut 1 (2 1/2″) scallop square

Next you will need to:

  • Ink the Buffalo Check stamp with the Memento Black ink and stamp the Whisper White card front, wrap around a piece of the Black Glitter ribbon and tie a bow and then adhere to the card base.
  • Stamp the “BOO” shadow first the Smoky Slate ink, I stamped it off to get a softer look. Then stamp the solid “BOO” in Memento Black ink.
  • Stamp the back ground image above the “BOO” in Smoky Slate ink again stamping off, with a scrap of the Black Foil paper punch out the trio of bats and attach one above the “BOO” with mini dimensionals.
  • Adhere the Black Foil scallop square above the bow, add the Granny Apple Green square and then the Whisper White stitched square with dimensionals.
  • For the inside of the card I repeated how I had stamped the front square except added Happy Halloween instead of the “BOO”  and layered the Whisper White on the Granny Apple Green the Basic Black. You can add you extra bats inside too!

I hope this card has inspired you to start creating your own Halloween cards to send. if you would like to create this card I have listed all the supplies I used below. If you would like to purchase these and/or other items you can click on any item and be directed to my online store.

Trio of Treats….

I just love these little take out boxes featured on page 51 of the 2018 Holiday Catalog, they are the perfect size to fill with  yummy treat. Today I focused on Halloween but the Takeout Treat Bundle includes images that would be great for Christmas, Birthdays and Valentines too. I’m sure with a little creativity you will come up with so many more.

treat box SUI started out with copying the Lemon Lime Twist take out box from the catalog. I decided to use Granny Apple Green card stock for the base and stamped the candy image in Granny Apple ink. The banner is a 1″ X 3″ stripe piece of the Toil & Trouble Designer Series paper, flagged at both ends and adhered to the front with adhesive. I added a piece of the Black Glittered Organdy ribbon and created the tag by stamping “Less Tricks and More Treats” inVersaMark ink and embossing with white embossing powder  then attached with dimensionals. To finish it off I added one of the Spider Trinkets with a glue dot and scattered a few rhinestones.

The second box I did just as pictured except I used a die cut to create a window in the front so you could see the yummy candy 🙂 The base is pumpkin pie ink and card stock, the tags are whisper white with gorgeous grape ink and card stock. The tags are tied on with whisper white bakers twine.



The last of the trio was made with a gorgeous grape box, stamped with gorgeous grape stars and tied together with Black Sparkled Organdy ribbon.  I die cut the larger tag with the a piece of the Toil & Trouble Designer series paper, trimming one end off. Next I stamped “Less Tricks and More Treats” three times, once each in granny apple green, pumpkin pie and gorgeous grape inks then cut each line apart and attached to the tag with dimensionals and glue dots. To finish it off I tied the tag on with a piece of linen thread andadded a Spider Trinket in the loop of the bow.
