BOO and Happy Halloween from a Friend

Happy Saturday and Happy Halloween!

Today I have a Halloween decor to share:


The fun 3D Pop Up Letters are from My Scrap Chick. I used retired DSP to decorate the letters. The pumpkins and ghost are from last year's Fall Fest stamp set and coordinating Framelits.


A piece of Spider Web Doily and a couple of Black Glimmer bats (retired punch) add spookiness to the B.


FaBOOlous, from the Six Sayings hostess set, was stamped using Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Markers, then fussy cut.


I love the witch's hat! If you haven't seen this yet, it is made with the Tree Punch, 1 inch Circle Punch, 2 1/2 inch Punch (which I don't have so I used the 4th smallest Framelit which measures about 2 1/4), and a Clothespin.


So cute!

I have to share the spooky Happy Halloween card I received from my friend Jean:


I love the water colored background and the torn card stock for the hill is brilliant! Jean doesn't have a blog, but you can visit her SCS Gallery for lots of fabulous inspiration.

I wish you a fun and safe Halloween!

Happy trick or treating and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Saturday!

Today's card was created for the HYCCT1510 Tag, You're It! Challenge and the PCCCS167 Color Challenge.

Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT) is an annual month-long Challenge/Card Drive on SCS. Each day during October a new Challenge/Theme is posted.

On to my Triple Time Stamping card:


I inked the leaf stamps in Daffodil Delight and used Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi on the tips (Stampin' Spots come in handy for this). The leaves and sentiment are from the September Paper Pumpkin stamp set.

I kept the inside and envelope simple:

IBS Autumn Harvest Side Step Card

Happy Friday! 

For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I am sharing a Thanksgiving card using the September release Autumn Harvest stamp set.


I had so much fun creating this card. The two-step Autumn Harvest stamp set has so many creative possibilities.


This is somewhat of a personalized card as the card stock colors I chose for the card base and ‘door,’ match my house! Side step cards are really easy to create. There is an easy-to-follow tutorial on SCS.

The Autumn Harvest stamp set contains six word stamps that can be used individually or paired together to create sentiments, as I did with Happy and Thanksgiving.


I used the single branch image to create a sprig wreath. First I punched a ¾ circle in the card stock, next I stamped the branch image in a circle using three different shades of brown ink (lightest to darkest), and then I fussy-cut the wreath shape. Of course a wreath needs a ribbon banner.


I water colored the basket of apples and wheelbarrow of pumpkins with Distress Markers. Those apples look so yummy! A few stray leaves add to the Fall-feel of the card. The Autumn Harvest stamp set contains a variety of leaves to choose from.

Thanks for stopping by!

IBSIC 99

Happy Thursday!

Welcome to my Inspired by Stamping post. Today is our group post featuring IBSIC 99!

On the 15th of each month, a new IBSIC is posted. You may follow the Color, Sketch, and/or Theme. One randomly chosen participant will receive a $25 GC to the Inspired by Stamping Store!

Here are the inspirations for IBSIC 99:




My card is based on the Colors:


White/Orange/Green/Black aren't just for Halloween! I used the new Autumn Harvest stamp set for a CAS Fall card.

I'll start by 'fessing up' and telling you I made a mistake stamping the card.  My original intention was to have the first orange leaf face up, then the green leaf face down, etc. So much for good intentions...of course I stamped the green leaf in the same direction as the orange. Instead of starting over, I just went with it (learning to take life easier!). I'm happy with the way the card turned out.

The two simple rows of orange and green leaves look bright and fresh. Stamping the sentiment in black really makes it 'stand out.' I like the options for creating a sentiment with the Autumn Harvest stamp set.

Here is the inside:


I carried over a few leaves to the inside, leaving plenty of room to write a message.

The link to enter IBSIC 99 is open until 10:00 AM ET on November 13 (11:59 PM Brisbane time on November 14). Inspired by Stamping products are not required to enter, but if you do use them your entry will be counted twice! I look forward to see what inspires you.

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see the full list of designers featuring IBSIC 99 cards today.

Thanks for stopping by! You may want to 'visit' again tomorrow to see what else I created with the Autumn Harvest stamp set (just saying!).
