Stampin’ Up! To Every Season Holiday Cards

Good Morning! Saturday was World Card Making Day and the Inkin Krew had a celebration on Facebook. Our leader, Amy, created a group for customers and friends and we had several Facebook Live presentations on card making throughout the day. It was an inspirational and fun day and thank you to everyone who participated!

For this celebration, I made a Thankful for You card using the Stampin’ Up! To Every Season bundle on Facebook Live. I was so nervous since I have only done a few videos and the audience was so much bigger than the handful of supporters I usually have watching! Here is the Facebook Live video:

You can also view this video on YouTube here.

And then on Sunday afternoon, I did my normally scheduled Live session on my Stampin’ In The Meadows Facebook page and I made a Halloween card using the same stamp set.

Here is that video:

And I also uploaded it to YouTube for watching here.

The Stampin’ Up! To Every Season stamp bundle is very versatile and will take you a long way. It has bat stamps for Halloween, leaf stamps for Fall or Thanksgiving, snowflake stamps for Christmas or Winter and heart stamps for Valentines day. And in the bundle, you also get the Every Season punch pack, consisting of 4 mini punches – a bat, a leaf, a snowflake and a heart. And it has lots of sentiments in a nice simple font.

My video adventure continues to evolve. I’m taking baby steps and learning A LOT. I still have a ways to go, but I did get my Stampin’ In The Meadows YouTube channel started and a couple of videos posted. YAY!! I still need to learn about customizing it so it’s pretty, but I’ll get there eventually. You can take a look at it here, and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Boo to You Little Monsters Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! Our awesome team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products with the theme “Halloween Fun”. I am using the Stampin’ Up! Boo to You stamp set to make a spooky card with little Halloween monsters! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started the card by using one of the layering circles dies to cut a mask for the moon on a piece of copy paper. I positioned the open circle on a Whisper White panel and sponged in Daffodil Delight for the moon. I then covered the moon with the die cut circle and lightly sponged some Calypso Coral ink around the moon. I then took some non-SU purple ink (How come I don’t have any Gorgeous Grape ink? Need to get some!) and added some touches of purple outside the Calypso Coral. I then made a mask for the ground and sponged the rest of the sky in Night of Navy, making it darker at the edges of the paper and lighter closer to the moon. I then removed the cover off the moon.

Next came the large tree from the Snow Front Stamp set, which I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I trimmed a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to match the ground and adhered it to the panel. I stamped the pair of pumpkins from the Gather Together stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White cardstock. I colored them with Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut them and adhered them to the card front at the base of the tree. Finally I mounted the front panel on a Calypso Coral mat and a Gorgeous Grape card base using liquid glue.

Next I stamped the Frankenstein-like and the hairy horned monsters from the Stampin’ Up! Boo to You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. I colored the monsters with Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the monsters and used a black marker to color the white paper edges. And I adhered the green and yellow google eyes to them! I popped them on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Boo to You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Boo to You stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and added another stamped and die cut set of pumpkins fro the Gather Together stamp set to the bottom left corner. I adhered the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Do your little ones dress as monsters or superheroes for Halloween? Either way, I bet they love to be scared by monsters on Halloween. Enjoy them!! Thanks for visiting!
