The new Holiday Catalog comes out September 1 but I couldn't wait to pre-order this cute Howl-o-Ween Treat stamp set. This was an idea for a card similar to one that I did a few years ago with Carved and Candlelit so I wanted to recreate it using the new stamp sets. I will have to scan my original card so you can see how I did that one too. The hat is attached with a dimensional so that the hat can be work by the owl and when you pull up the insert, the hat is worn by the skull. The other stamp set I used for the "Happy Haunting" is the Cheer All Year, also is the 2015 Holiday Catalog.

I'm using some of my favorite colors again (Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo). I found a similar card on Pinterest made by Michelle Gleeson, so I wanted to create one of my own. The stamp sets I used were Dotty Angles, Bloom for You and Remarkable You. On the 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the Dotty Angles with Soft Sky ink, and then cleaned my stamp and inked it up with Pool Party and stamped about an inch from the first image. I cleaned my stamp and inked it up with Island Indigo. The Bloom for You stamp is inked up with Soft Sky ink and stamped on Soft Sky cardstock. Then I punched it out with the Fun Flower Punch. I used VersaMark and Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it to give a nice shiny appearance. I stamped the flower again with Island Indigo ink on Soft Sky cardstock and punched out only the center of the flower with the 7/8" Circle Scallop Punch. I attached to the flower with a Dimensional and placed it on the front of my card with Dimensionals. I punched out little flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (flower) and used the VersaMark ink pad again with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it them also. Then I punched out little Island Indigo centers for the flowers with the 1/4" Handheld Punch. I attached them with Glue Dots near the verse "I'm So Grateful For You" that was stamped with an Island Indigo marker (Omitting the "and").

My daughter had twins (Boy and Girl) in February and they were premature, so we just had the baby shower for her this past Saturday. This is the card I made for her baby shower which is called a Double Slider card. I learned how to make these from a video from Julie Davison. HERE The sets I used were Something for Baby and A Dozen Thoughts. Something for Baby has the Framelits to match called Baby's First. The colors I used were Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum and Marina Mist. The ribbon I used is the 5/8" Striped Cotton Black Berry and the Baker's Twine in Old Olive. I used
the Tear and Tape to hold it together on this one. Fast Fuse works very well too once I learned how to use it correctly from the Stampin' Up! video FAST FUSE VIDEO
