Faux Neon Friday-Halloween Card

Hi everyone!

How about a Faux Neon Friday card on a Saturday? Sorry for being behind this week, but I still was able to give you 5 videos!

Today is my last Halloween card using the Festive Phrases stamp set from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. 

I didn't use all of the colors that I normally use for Faux Neon Friday. Instead, I focused on Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and I added in Lemon Lime Twist!
I cut my stamp apart. I know some of you don't care for that trick or it worries you, but as you can see on the circle, it stamps again perfectly!  I stamped the cauldrons on the background first, added a Lemon Lime Twist ribbon!
I stamped the full stamp on a piece of Whisper White and punched it using the 2" circle punch and I added it to a piece of Basic Black that was punched with the 2 1/4" circle punch.

Thank you so much for stamping with me today!  See you next week!  Who is ready for Christmas cards?!  Let me know in the comments!

Halloween Shaker Card

Hi everyone!

We made it to Friday!  Give yourself a big pat on the back :) To celebrate, let's get ready to shake it up for the weekend by making this adorable shaker card!  See what I did there? Ha!

This is my 4th card using the Festive Phrases stamp set from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog! This catalog goes live for customers on September 1st!  Want it sooner,  join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator and pick these items for your Starter Kit! 


For today's card, I decided to stick to a traditional Pumpkin Pie/Basic Black Halloween palette. 

I started this card with a Pumpkin Pie card base and added this cute potion paper from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  This paper has some really fun holiday patterns, but it also has some great basic patterns as well. You're going to love how versatile it is!

I cut a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 square out of Basic Black and Very Vanilla for the shaker portion of my card. I used the 2 1/4" Circle Punch to punch out the black and I added a 3 x 3 piece of Window Sheet to the back of the black card stock using snail.

I added Foam Adhesive Strips, some of the Metallic Sequin Assortment and adhered everything together and added it to my card base using snail.

As finishing touches, I stamped the Pick Your Potion stamp in Pumpkin Pie and cut apart the caldron from the sentiment. I also cut out a jack-o-lantern and witches hat from other pieces of the DSP. I adhered everything to the shaker portion using snail and added some of the Pumpkin Pie shapes from the Brights Enamel Shapes!

I hope you enjoyed today's card. Would you like to see more shaker cards in the future? Just let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stamping with me today!  Don't forget to check out my August Specials, print the recipe and watch the video below!

Pick Your Potions Witches Hat Halloween Card

Hi everyone!

Happy Wednesday! I am back today with my second card using the Festive Phrases stamp set  and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  You can being ordering on September 1st, 2017!

For today's card, I added in some Elegant Eggplant. I love purple and I really love purple as an accent color during Halloween! 

One of my favorite patterns in this DSP is the text!  I used that as my bottom layer!  I also love how bold the polka dot is!  My last pattern is this trellis pattern. I really love how they all work together and that's the beauty of Designer Series Paper! 


I stamped the Pick Your Potion stamp using Elegant Eggplant. This started out really dark, but lightened as it dried!  I love it!  I knew I wanted to add a hat from another piece of the DSP. I think this orange hat with polka dots does the trick!


I finished the card using the Elegant Eggplant shapes from the Regals Enamel Shapes pack!

Thank you so much for stamping with me today!  What do you think about purple as a Halloween color? Let me know in the comments below!

Pick Your Potion Halloween Card

Hi everyone!

I was super ready to kick off my 2017 Holiday Card Series and completely forgot about the really cute supplies I picked up from my 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Pre-order! I decided I had to spend at least one week making Halloween cards. I am so glad that I did!


I am only using 1 stamp and 1 package of Designer Series Paper this week!  I am going to show you 5 very different cards and maybe a bonus project as well!
For today's card, I wanted the super cute Spooky Night Designer Series Paper to be the star of the card!  I picked this great jack-o-lantern pattern and the potion pattern for this card!

I stamped the Pick Your Potion stamp from the Festive Phrases stamp set in both Memento Tuxedo Black and Pumpkin Pie ink. I punched the black image using the 2" circle punch. I cut out the Potion part of the Pumpkin Pie sentiment with my scissors!

I used the 2 1/4" circle punch to punch a piece of Basic Black card stock. I used snail to adhere the 2 circles together. I used dimensionals to add the orange potion to the focal panel.
I used a piece of the Basic Black 3/8 Shimmer Ribbon to add a cut bow!  I really love how this card turned out!

Thanks so much for stamping with me today!  Print the recipe below to get all the measurements. Supplies are listed below!  The Holiday Catalog goes live on September 1st! Let me know if you need one!
