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!

Two looks one design!

Do you have a favorite layout? I have several and it always amazes me that by changing up the colors, accessories or images how different each card looks. Today’s card I created with the same layout, same stamp set but changed up the colors and theme with different sentiments. This card features Pop of petals bundle and Another Wonderful Year for the sentiment “Thank You”


To get started….

  •  Cut a standard card base in Soft Sea Foam (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″) stamp the 3 little flower image in Soft Sea Foam ink from the upper left corner to the lower right. Cut 1 piece at 3″ X 3/4″ and stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.
  • With Whisper White card stock you will need 1 piece cut at 4 1/4″ X 3 1/4″, with a pencil trace a circle (I used a framelit) and stamp the branch in Old Olive moving around the circle stamping twice and then re-inking the image so you get the different shades.  You will need 1 piece cut at 4 1/4″ X 1″, punch along the long side with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch.
  • Stamp 3 flowers on Petal Pink card stock with Petal Pink ink and punch out, I curled the petals with my bone folder.

Putting it together….

  • Wrap a 15″ piece of linen thread around the whisper white and tie a bow on the right .
  • Attach the sentiment with dimensionals above the bow.
  • Add the 3 flowers with glue dots, add rhinestones to the centers.
  • Adhere the whisper white decorative border about 3 1/4″-3 1/2″ down from the top, add dimensionals and attach your wreath 🙂

On my second card I used all the same measurements but different colors to create a Holiday Card. 


  • Card base- Call Me Clover ink and card stock
  • Flowers/Ribbon – Lovely Lipstick 2018-2020 In-color designer series paper, Lovely Lipstick grosgrain ribbon, polka dot tulle ribbon.
  • Accessories red rhinestones, faceted gems, Versamark ink, white embossing powder.
  • Sentiment Mistletoe Seasons

TIP – I punched out 3 flowers for each, a total of nine. I spritzed them with water and crumpled them, once dry I layered them attaching with glue dots.

One of my favorite techniques with the STAMPARATUS is the Hinge-Step Technique, watch this video to see just how easy it is ant then check out my sample below.

I added a little twist to the hinge by placing my stamp at an angle.
