YNS Halloween Series – Designer Showcase Week

Hello everyone!! This week the design team is showcasing all different types of halloween projects!!  To see my fellow design team members work, head on over to the YNS Blog.

Take a look at my project:


YNS Supplies: Scallop Topped Treat Bag, Happy Haunting Die Set

Other Supplies: Stampin’ Up! Witches Brew Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Up! Very Vanilla Cardstock

My daughter and I wanted to make some cute packages for her classmates for Halloween. So we used Your Next Stamp Scallop Topped Treat Bag and cut 25 bags out of some halloween pattern paper.

We scored, folded and taped the paper together to create the bag. Once the bag was put together, we added the candy to it. Then we used the Happy Haunting Die to cut out the ghost from Very Vanilla cardstock.

Each child’s name will be added to the ghost and then adhered to each bag.

Super nice and easy.  All of our halloween treats are ready to go.

Thanks for stopping by!!

This release is super cute!!  Yesterday’s sneak peek was fun.

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Isha’s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom of this post and start at Laura’s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the SpookTacular Halloween Stamp Set! Its down below.

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my cards:

Card one:

Spok-tacular Halloween

YNS Supplies: SpookTacular Halloween,  SpookTacular Halloween DiesWoodlands Paper Pack, Stitched Frame Dye Set

Other Supplies: Recollections Heavyweight White Cardstock, Colorbox Black Embossing Powder, Copic Markers, Recollections Heavyweight Black Cardstock,Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink

I haven’t used my Copic Markers in such a long time that I had to pull them out for this card. This little guys are so cute and were begging to be colored.

All I did to create this card was cut a 4×4 base card out of the heavyweight black cardstock. Then I used the stitched frame die set to cut out a frame from the Woodlands paper pack.  After that I stamped the sentiment along the four boarders and embossed it with black embossing powder.  Then I adhered the frame to the card front.  Using some Copic Markers, I colored the two images and then die cut them out.  I adhered them to the card front inside the frame with dimensionals.

Super cute.

Card two:

Lunch box notes (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Kids Activity Planning, Stitched Frame Die, Swirly Pattern Paper

Other Supplies:Recollections Heavyweight White Cardstock, Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink, Tombow Irojiten Tranquil and Vivid Coloring Pencil

For these cute little lunchbox notes, I cut the white heavyweight cardstock to a 3×3 size.  Then I die cut the Swirly patten paper out using the small stitched frame die and adhered it to the front of the card base.  Using the Mini Misti, I stamped different images and sentiments from the Kids Activity Planning set and colored them in using coloring pencils.

Easy does it!!  These notes are for my daughter.  I will put one in her lunchbox everyday.

So, what do you think?

CASology 169 – Zombie

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 169 - ZOMBIE

Take a look at my card:


Now, to create this card, I had to do some research on an image!  I didn’t have any stamps that that went with this cue card so I had to find one fast.

I found this image on the Make it Crafty website.  I remember watching Zoe color her zombie color on Periscope last week and figured I could find an image that I would like on her site.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I resized my image and created my own sentiment in photoshop and printed it on Canson Watercolor paper using my Epson XP-810 printer.
  2. Then I taped the watercolor paper down and began painting the image with Distress Inks Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Fired Brick, Gathered Twig and Hickory Smoke.
  3. Then I round the top two corner with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  2. Then I used Heidi Swap Star Stencil and Hero Arts Unicorn Ink and added some stars in the sky.
  3. Then I used WPlus9 Shimmer Spray Mist to add shimmer dimension in the sky.
  4. After that I stamped So Suzy Stamps Safest Day Stamp Set using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
  5. Then I stamped the So Suzy Stamp Halloween Cat using the same Hybrid Ink .
  6. Then I used the Hybrid Ink to add color to my Unique Laser Deisgns Halloween Mini Chipboard and adhered it within my moon.
