Clean & Simple Trendy Trees

I love CAS cards and I think this one falls into that category. I case'd the layout from a cute card by Julie Davison.

The 3 panels were about 3-5/8 x 1-1/2".  I used the corner rounder on the two outer panels. I should have gotten out my stamp-a-majig for the tree but I just freehanded it. It took me 3 tries to get it right :-)  The sentiment is stamped in Always Artichoke and then I used the corner rounder on opposite corners and finally I added a bit of twine and that's it.

It's always fun to decorate the inside too so I added a strip of the DSP and used the scallop border punch to pretty it up.

Stamps: Trendy Trees
Paper: Kraft, White, Springtime Vintage DSP (ret)
Ink: Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake
Accessories: corner rounder punch, twine

One Last Halloween Bingo Bits Card

One final Halloween card using the ever so cute Halloween Bingo Bits. I just love these little guys!  Each image is cut with a 1-1/4" circle punch then layered on a 1-3/8" circle. Each circle is popped up with a dimensional.  The black layer is paper pierced all around the edge but I don't think that you can see that in the picture. This is layered on Eggplant Envy and that layer is also on dimensionals. The pumpkin layer is embossed with the spider web embossing folder.  A strip of black punched with the scallop border punch and a thin strip of Eggplant  with 2 brads finish off the pumpkin layer.

Here's a side view but it's still really hard to see the layering.

Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Kraft, Pumpkin Pie, Eggplant Envy, Black, White
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Eggplant Envy, Old Olive, Black
Accessories: spider web EF, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" circle punches, scallop border punch, black brads, paper piercer and mat pack, word window punch, modern label punch

Another Spooky Bingo Bits

This is a CASE of a cute card I found at My Creative Corner.  I changed it slightly by using the spider web embossing folder on the black lower portion. I used a black marker to draw the spider's web.

See the inside of the card below.  It's a simple "BOO!" from the Spooky Bingo Bits set.  Sorry it's blurry but I took it with my iPhone and I was in a hurry.

Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Black
Accessories: spider web embossing folder, 1-1/4" circle punch, black marker

Spooky Bingo Halloween Card

I'm so excited that I got the Spooky Bingo Bits set today. I've been eyeing this set since the catalog came out and I finally got it. I just had to make a card right away.

My only Halloween paper is the retired Halloween Fright which I used with the Top Note die.  I cut around the perforated edge and then used the Top Note die to make the Pumpkin Pie background. This is layered on the card with dimensionals.  The DSP matches Vintage Violet (also retired) which I used for the card base and embossed with the spider web embossing folder.  I stamped the cute little Halloween images in Vintage Violet on white & cut them out with the 1-1/4" circle punch. They are backed with 1-3/8" Pumpkin Pie circles and then popped up on dimensionals.  The "Boo" is from the Tiny Tags set and punched with the Jewelry Tag punch.  I used non-SU Bakers twine  to tie the tag on. Watch for more cards using these fun bingo bits :-)

Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits, Tiny Tags
Paper: Vintage Violet (ret), Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Halloween Fright DSP (ret)
Ink: Vintage Violet, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" circle punches, jewelry tag punch, Baker's twine, spider embossing folder, dimensionals

Perfectly Penned Birthday

This card is for my SIL's bday next week.  I got inspiration from this card by Stampercamper whose work I love.  I'm a bit grumpy about it though. I thought the black ink on the Happy Birthday was dry but apparently not because as you can see it is smeared. Grr!  Well aside from that I like how the card turned out :-)

I stamped the doily in Crumb Cake and then stamped the flowers in black.  The flower heads use both of the stamps in the set. The first stamp was full strength black and for the 2nd stamp I stamped off twice to get it lighter.  You can't really tell in the picture but there are dimensionals between the Kraft (yes I still have a supply of Kraft cardstock) layer and the black card base. It gives it a bit of depth in real life.

Stamps: Hello Doily, Perfectly Penned
Paper: Black, Kraft (aka Crumb Cake), White
Ink: Black, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Mat pack & paper piercer, 1/4" black grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

Cute Little Gingerbread Men

These Post It pads use the set that got me into stamping many years ago.  It's called Seasonal Patches.  I went to a Christmas card stamping event at my church and one of the cards used this stamp.  I fell in love. I didn't know what company made the stamp but about a week later I was riding the bus to work and the lady sitting next to me had a Stampin'Up catalog.  I asked if I could look at it and there was my little stamp.  I placed an order with her and I've been stamping ever since :-)

The base layer of Soft Suede is 6-11/16 x 3-1/8". I scored from each end at 3-1/8".  The gingerbread man is popped up on dimensionals.  I'm really loving the Spice Cake DSP and I hope you like my gingerbread men too!

Stamps: Seasonal Patches
Paper: Soft Suede, Pool Party, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Spice Cake DSP
Ink: Soft Suede, Cajun Craze (marker)
Accessories: antique brads, dimensionals
