Scare up a little fun

I originally planned to do a FB live today (Wednesday at 3:00 pm) but my little Aspen isn’t feeling well and I had to take him to the vet this morning.  He is still there and I’m waiting on an update so I don’t want to tie up my phone with the live today.  I am now planning to do the live on Thursday at 3:00 pm.  Catch me on my FB Business page At Monika’s Place on Thursday afternoon for a Facebook Live showing you some other cute treat ideas with this stamp set. I’m planning to go live at 3:00 pm EST.

For now here is another little project in honor of my sweet little Aspen.  I wouldn’t call it fun but he did give me a scare – I’m still waiting on some news though.

The little dog on the Trick or Tweet set is all dressed for Halloween.  I found the perfect candy at the store to match – Lemon Lime Twist, Gorgeous Grape and Pumpkin Pie.  It was the Ghoulish mix from the M&Ms.  Since we don’t have a Lemon Lime Twist Blends I did use the Granny Apple Green to color in the cape and band on the hat.

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Mememto Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie

Batty for You

I think I love all the little animals in the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  The first one that I actually played with though was the little elephant.  I’ve collected elephants since I was a little girl so this was one I was naturally drawn to. 

There are several new Holiday Catalog products on this card – the Trick or Tweet stamp set, the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, the black glittered ribbon and new Stampin’ Blends in Blackberry Bliss. I thought it turned out to be a fun card.

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Basic Gray card stock
  • Blackberry Bliss card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder
  • Big Sot Die Cutting Machine
  • Memento Black ink

Trick or Tweet Treat Box

All week long I’m going to be featuring this adorable stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog called Trick or Tweet.  It’s a cute little Halloween stamp set with animals dressed up in costumes – a dog, a cat, an elephant, and a little chick.  They are so cute!

Today’s project was one that I created after finding Glow in the Dark candy at the store.  Well the candy doesn’t glow in the dark but the wrappers do.  So I wanted to use our clear tiny treat boxes with the candy inside.  If you leave it out in the light it “charges” up the wrapper so that it will glow later in the dark.  And the wrappers are a perfect match to our Lemon Lime Twist color!

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Clear Tiny Treat Boxes
  • Lemon Lime Twist card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon
  • Basic Black Baker’s Twine
  • StazOn Black ink
  • Stampin’ Write Markers – Lemon Lime Twist, Pineapple Punch, Pumpkin Pie
  • 1/2″ circle punch
  • 1-1/2″ circle punch
  • 1-3/4″ circle punch
  • 1/8″ handheld punch
  • Corrugated Embossing Folder
  • Big Shot Die Cut Machine

I cut a 2″ strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock and ran it through the Big Shot inside the new Corrugated Embossing Folder.  I put that inside the Clear Tiny Treat box to fill the space around the candy inside the box.  The little chick was colored with the Stampin’ Write Markers.  Tie the ombre ribbon around the box and then add the finished tag.

Be sure to catch me on my FB Business page At Monika’s Place on Wednesday afternoon for a Facebook Live showing you some other cute treat ideas with this stamp set. I’m planning to go live at 3:00 pm EST.

Amazing Adventures

Summer is quickly coming to an end which hopefully means our temperatures will cool down.  It’s been hot and in 10 days I’m going to be walking 30 miles for the Georgia 2 Day Breast Cancer Walk and really want the temps to cool down.  It is not fun walking when its 90 degrees outside.  By the way if you would like to donate to my walk you can sponsor me here on my walker fundraising page.

So did you have any amazing adventures this summer or maybe for fall break.  The schools around here are on fall break this week and many of my neighbors are at the beach one more time.  In my Stamper’s Club we have been making a scrapbook page every month and for September I created this fun Amazing Adventure Page for them. 

I wonder what amazing adventure photos everyone will add to this page. What would you put on here? My summer adventure included a whale watching trip in Alaska and that’s likely what I will be adding to this page. 

Supply List

  • Sea of Textures Bundle (stamp set + Under the Sea Framelits)
  • Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper
  • Night of Navy card stock
  • Soft Sea Foam card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Tranquil Tide card stock
  • Crumb Cake card stock
  • Tranquil Tide ink
  • Soft Sea Foam ink

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Octupus.  Creating a template and then blanks so that everyone could easily line up the stamping.  I was able to ink and stamp a couple of times to make sure he was really dark.  It was like an octo-puzzle!
