Wicked Inspiration for Halloween

I have kids, but they are growing and don't require cute or fancy treats anymore ;)  I don't get to play as much as I used to.  This collection of beautiful and fun stamped items was made by fellow demonstrator, Helen.  She is AMAZING!  Her attention to detail is fantastic.  If you're looking for Halloween inspiration, this takes the cake!

Snowman Embellishments!

The Snowman Embellishment kit is so much fun!  Check out this adorable little guy I made :)

Using the Mini Curvy Keepsake Die, I cut out a box in white.  I used the Let it Snow embellishment kit to create the snowman's face, then added a little ribbon. 

All it needs is a treat :)

Look at all of the fu items in this kit!

Snowman Pizza Boxes!

Stampin' Up's pizza boxes are so versatile!  They are food safe.  They fit cookies, brownies, gum, gift cards and more!  I LOVE these!  They are great for teacher gifts!

For this pizza box, I left it plain, added a ribbon and then stamped this fun tag to tuck into the ribbon.  It's right out of the catalog!  I cased it from Stampin' up!

This one is also from the catalog.  I stamped and sponged the box, then attached the DSP and glitter paper, then punched out a snowman and decorated him (LOVE the embellishments!)

Let it Snow Frame

This little frame was one of my favorite pieces to make for the suite! 

The base is 8" x 10"
I used Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo and the Red Glitter Paper and Let it Snow DSP.
I also added some elements from the Let it Snow Embellishment kit.

I will be working on creating a tutorial for this fun project.  The tutorial will have step by step directions & measurements.  Stay tuned!

Let it Snow Suite

This past weekend I attended a demonstrator only event, Holiday Hoopla!  It was put on by Peggy Murwin and Tina Rappe.  It was a blast!  At the end of the event they asked me what they could fix or what needed help.  I honestly enjoyed the entire thing!  There wasn't a single presenter that I did not enjoy and every project was amazing!

I was asked to create a display for this event. I chose the new Let it Snow Suite.  This suite is on page 18-21.  It includes the Snowman Season stamp set and Snowman Builder punch, as well as Tiny Keepsakes stamp set and Mini Curvy Keepsakes box dies.

Over the coming weeks I will share my fun projects with you!  So stay tuned.

Let's start with these guys!  I LOVE the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit!  I used the fun scarves and enamel shapes to create these cute snowman gift tags!  So easy!

Snowman Season

Well Everyone, it's September but the holidays are hot at Stampin' Up!  Our newest Holiday catalog went live on the 4th... check it out!  I am in love!  Another great year of ideas!

The Snowman Season stamp set & coordinating punch have been one of my favorite items the past week.  I've done a lot of playing in preparation for an event this weekend.  I'll be sharing photos of my fun projects... stay tuned!

In the meantime, here is a quick tip for lining up a builder punch and stamp set easily using your Stamparatus.

Cut a piece of cardstock (mine is a base front 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" & punch your snowman out.  Then lay it down in your Stamparatus.

Now lay your stamps down in the openings and close the stamparatus.  Now you are perfectly lined up.  Stamp your images...

...and punch them out.  A perfect fit!  Everything lined up and now I can mass produce these adorable little guys.

Granny Apple Daisy

Granny Apple Green is one of my favorite colors!  I decided to pair it with the new Daisy Lane stamp set.

I started with a base layer of Granny Apple Green.
Next a layer of Gorgeous Grape.
Then a layer of Shimmer White cardstock.
I stamped and punched the daisies from shimmer white as well.
All of my stamping was Granny Apple Green ink.
I finished it off with dimensionals and gems.
