Halloween Cards with Project Life

This past Saturday I attended a Stampin' Up! event called United & Excite which was hosted by a wonderful demonstrator friend,Glenda Travelstead.  There were five presenters on four different topics.  The afternoon was wonderful.  Glenda even provided a make and take for all 75 demonstrators in attendance.

I helped with one of the presentations.  My sister, Tina Rappe and I were ask to do a prentation on any of the kits from the Stampin' Up! catalogs.  We rarely use the kits as they come, we put our own little twist on them.  W used the Seasonal SnapshotProject Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack — these items can be found on page 35 of the Holiday Catalog.  These items are designed to make your memory keeping quick & easy and still very affordable.  There are 100 holiday themed cards in the box.  The accessory pack coordinates with the card collection and includes sticker sheets, washi tape, sequins, and other embellishments.

So in true Stampin' Sisters style, we took the holiday themed cards and created cards. 

Here are the Halloween cards that we created.  We added two sheets of Tangerine Tango cardstock for the four card bases.  We added some stamping from the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set.

Aren't these cute, adorable cards?  AND they are very quick and easy to put together.  I challenge you to an afternoon of card making using one of the Project Life by Stampin' Up! Card Collections and Accessory Packs — you will love it.

Ornament Pines Screen Card

Screen Cards — they are all the rage in card making right now.  I saw samples of this card technique all over Pinterest.  I saw one done with the Ornamental Pines stamp set and I just had to give it a try.

Pines Screen
This was one of the cards we made at my Stamp & Go Clubs the past two nights.  They loved this card — there is a little more detail to it but it is very simple to do using the Decorative Label punch to create the "legs" on the bottom of the card.  I also used the new Confetti Stars Punch along the top edge.  Then just stamp the pine boughs "all over" the cardstock.  I stamped the ornaments with Versa Mark and then heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.

Give it a try — let me know if you need any help.  This card technique is quite fun and will definitely make everyone stop to look at the card.

Spooky Halloween House

I didn't know if I liked this Holiday Home stamp set but as usual when I start playing with it, oh my goodness, so much fun!!!  This card was cased from a fellow demonstrator (I apologize I don't remember who it was — I looked at a lot of things on our demonstrator only Stampin' Connection website).  I made a few small changes but I loved how this card turned out.Happy Halloween HouseIt really does say Halloween to me — in a cute, scary way.
