Cookie Cutter Halloween and Mr Funny Bones

Hi everybody and Happy Halloween! Buy did my kids POP out of bed this morning! Like their mother, they love Halloween! Their costumes have been in the works for weeks and their dreams of candy are reaching an all time high! LOL! We are ready! 

I have one last project for you- a card featuring that cute vampire from Cookie Cutter Halloween. I also used the ghoulish Gunrge on the grey piece behind him. 

Another fun product I used here is one of the Seasonal Masks and a Wink of Stella brush. It took some time to carefully color in all the little open spaces, but the results were worth it! This card also feature the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper and the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper as well as the bats from the Halloween Scene Framelits.  


Inside, I used some of the fun stamps from Mr. Funny Bone.

And speaking of Halloween, can we give the teachers a shout out today!? I don't ever remember Halloween being on a Monday, do you!? Anyhow, my daughter's teacher was smart and designated today as book report day and gave the kids the freedom to dress as a book character from the book they were reporting on. Emma chose The Election Day Disaster, by Ron Roy, and wanted to be the main character KC Thornton. Well, she is just a normal girl, and I wasn't sure how we were going to make a costume out of this. Until Emma mentioned she had red hair!! 

So, when your mom is a Stampin' Up Demo, you get red hair via a Cajun Craze ink pad!! I spent about 15 minutes running the pad over her hair and brushing it through. We have played around with this before and I knew it would wash out, so we really went to town! Now, I am sure there will be some residual color tomorrow since she is so white blonde, but who cares! It's Halloween!! :-) It will all wash out... eventually. 

I hope you have a wonderful {spooky} Monday!!

Thailand Trip Achievers Blog Hop- Inspired By Nature


Hello everyone and welcome to this month's Thailand Achievers Blog Hop. We were formally known as the Mediterranean Trip Achievers, but that's in the past now. We have all earned the next incentive trip and are counting the days! 

This month's theme is Inspired By Nature. So, I decided I was inspired by the fall pumpkins and gourds that are everywhere right now! I grabbed my Basket of Wishes stamp set and got to work. 


First, I wanted to use my Seasonal Decorative Masks. I spritzed this one with Soft Suede ink and love the way it bled out a bit. 

Next, I focused on watercolor the basket and veggies. I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Crumb Cake. 

Did you notice the twine? That's the Halloween Night Twine! I pulled the Pumpkin Pie strands out and tied a bow with them. I love the texture of the twine when this is done. 

And, the sentiment inside is for a birthday of a friend that is coming up. I this it's perfect for a birthday, even through it doesn't actually say "Happy Birthday!"

Ok, here is the complete list of everyone participating. Thanks for stopping by and make sure to hop along to these other wonderful demos!

In Color Club Cards for October

October is the last month in my In Color club and I always try to end with a Christmas Card. You can see last year's In Color Cards here


This card was CASEd from a card right out of our Stampin' Up Demonstrator magazine called Stampin' Success. It's a really great magazine we get once a quarter from the home office. It features the Santa's Sleigh stamp set and each is paired with a complimentary color from one of Stampin' Up's main colors.


Peekaboo Peach was paired with Tangerine Tango.

Emerald Envy was paired with Mint Macaron.

Flirty Flamingo was paired with Watermelon Wonder.

Sweet Sugarplum was paired with Rich Razzleberry.

 Dapper Denim was paired with Marina Mist.

I'm not sure which one is my favorite. I love them all! Such unusual colors for Christmas, don't you think! But they work! My In Color Club will open again next summer, so watch for that in May. If you are interested in joining one of my clubs, my Stamp Club To Go has openings for a group that begins in November. Details for that are here


Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
