Stampin’ Up! Banner Year Happy Haunting Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Halloween card made with the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Last week I made a pair of Fall cards with this bundle and today’s card uses another technique for designing and stamping your own ‘designer series paper’ for a card background. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can find the YouTube video here.

I planned a little rectangle of images from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year photopolymer stamp set and the colors that I wanted to use. In order to fill all the spaces, I needed to put a spider in the spider web, so I used in the spider from the Celebration Tidings stamp set. Then I just stamped the pattern in a row. I shifted the pattern and stamped the next row and repeated until I covered the panel. I used Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty Peacock and Memento Tuxedo Black inks on a Whisper White panel.

I trimmed my stamped panel and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I colored a length of white crinkle seam binding ribbon with dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend and wrapped it around the panel, tying a bow. I cut the spider web from Smoky Slate card stock using the Peek A Hoot Dies and adhered it to the panel with a glue dot. I trimmed the ends of my labels with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the label to the mat and popped it on the panel with dimensionals. I finished the panel with three iridescent pearls and popped it on the front of a Rich Razzleberry card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the images similar to the card front on a Whisper White panel. I added the Boo sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The cute images in the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set are perfect for stamping all over a sheet of card stock to make your own custom designer series paper for a One Sheet Wonder project for all the upcoming holidays!  The little images are also great for accenting labels or tags that go on other projects.

Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! Our talented team has created projects this month with the theme of Halloween Fun. Be sure to check out all the projects for great inspiration for Halloween, as it’s just around the corner!

I made a Halloween card with the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot bundle for our hop today. These little little owls are so cute, so I had to get them! Here’s my card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings designer series paper to a panel of Magic in the Night designer series paper and then adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I embossed a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock with the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder and adhered it on top. I then wrapped a length of Black glitter ribbon around the panels and made a knot on the side. I popped the panel to the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the little owl and spider and Boo! sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the frame from the Hippo & Friends Dies. I sponged the background with Rich Razzleberry and Bumblebee ink and colored the tree with Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I stamped another image on a smaller whisper White panel and cut the owl and spider out with the coordinating die from the Peek a Hoot Dies. I sponged the edges of these die cuts to match and colored the owl with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the spider with the Basic Black Stampin Blends.

I cut out a Bumblebee mat from the next larger Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the back of the stamped die cut. I cut out two spider webs from Vellum card stock with the die from the Peek a Hoot Dies and adhered them to the back of the layered die cuts. I popped the owl and spider on the front with dimensionals and popped the layered die cuts on the card front. I finished it off with three iridescent pearls.

I stamped the owl and pumpkin and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored the image in Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin Blends. I carefully inked up the spider with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it in the upper corner. I added a strip of Magic in This Night DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

A colorful fun card to celebrate Halloween! Here’s a close up of the bundle – the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot cling stamps with the Peek a Hoot Dies. Aren’t those owls so cute?

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!
