Cutest Halloween

This really is a cute set!!  



  • Pumpkin Pie: 8 ½” x 5 ½”
  • Smoky Slate: 5” x 3 ¾”
  • Basic Black: 4 7/8” x 3 5/8”
  • Basic White: 5 ¼” x 4”, scraps for sentiment, jack-o-lantern & ghost,
  • Ribbon: 8“
  • Cute Halloween DSP: scraps


  1. Fold Pumpkin Pie card stock in half. Flatten fold with bone folder.
  2. Use the Picture This die with the circles to die cut circles out of the piece of Basic Black card stock. Use the cut out circles as cutting guides. Cut pieces from the DSP slightly larger than the die cut circles using the paper snips. Cut one piece of Basic White that is slightly larger than it’s corresponding circle & stamp “Trick or Treat” on it with Black ink.
  3. Stamp the jack-o-lantern and the ghost on scrap pieces of Basic White using Black ink.
    Stamp the inside of the jack-o-lantern using Pumpkin Pie ink. Color the stem with a Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.  Punch out images using the Halloween punch.  A post-it-note may be helpful to align the image in the punch.
  4. Adhere DSP and sentiment to Smoky Slate piece using multi-purpose liquid glue. Use black piece as a guide – trim & layer the DSP underneath so that it resembles the picture. Adhere Basic Black piece over Smoky Slate piece using several dimensionals and then adhere to card front.  Attach jack-o-lantern and ghost with dimensionals.
  5. Make a bow with the gingham ribbon and attach to card front with a mini glue dot.
  6. Stamp remaining Basic White card stock piece as desired and adhere to inside of card.

In Bloom for CI108

Good morning!  My club meets this afternoon--it's always a great time with these ladies!  Each month, we do a card swap, and October's theme was "Female Birthday Cards".  I was having trouble coming up with an idea, so decided to use a Challenge to help me out!  Colour Inkspirations had a bright and fun color combination, so went with that to create this card:

Oct swap tammy

I used the In Bloom Stamp Set and coordinating dies, Pierced Blooms.  Certainly a happy card, don't you think?

Here is the challenge pic! If you're interested, they have a facebook page HERE.

Good morning!!  Here with a quick post this morning!  My Holiday Card Class is this morning at 9:30am, so I'm off to get set up!!  If you missed this one, you can join us in November!  Click HERE for all the details!

This fun card features an "older" stamp set, Snowflake Wishes, along with a new one:  Watercolor Shapes!



  • Balmy Blue: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score at 4 ¼”
  • Night of Navy: 5 ¼” x 4”
  • Basic White: 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”
  • Vellum Cardstock: ¾” x 4”    


  1. On your ¼ sheet of Basic White Cardstock, stamp the smallest circle image from the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set, using the Balmy Blue Classic Ink.
  2. Following the same pattern, stamp the snowflake in Night of Navy Ink.
  3. Adhere this to the ¼ sheet of Night of Navy cardstock, then to the Balmy Blue Card base.
  4. On the strip of Vellum cardstock, stamp sentiment using Versarmark and Night of Navy ink.
    1. To do this, ink up your stamp with versamark ink first, then ink up in the Night of Navy pad—then stamp onto your Vellum cardstock.
  5. Sprinkle Clear Emboss Powder over image, and shake off any excess powder.
  6. Heat with heat tool until image is shiny blue!
  7. Snip ends of Vellum strip to create banner tails on both ends.
  8. Attach to card using Mini Glue Dots—put the glue dots behind the sentiment to “hide” them.
  9. Add Rhinestones. There are a lot on this card, but add what you like!
