Haunted House with Power Strips

On Saturday, 125 of Diana and Rhonda's closest friends gathered together for their Fall Fest 2016.  It is so much fun to stamp and craft with friends instead of being the one planning, cutting and prepping!  Which I also love, don't get me wrong - but boy oh boy, it's fun to be the one playing with the others - or as my team name is "Stamps Well With Others".  

Our first card that I'm going to share today is a great way to use up some of the strips of paper you have left over from other projects.

Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock - 5 1/4" x 4"
Halloween Night DSP - (Haunted House) - 2 3/4" x 2 1/4"
Pumpkin Pie - 3" x 2 1/2"
Basic Black - 3 1/4" x 2 3/4"
Jar of Haunts - Sentiment

  • Stamp greeting with Memento Tuxedo Black in upper right hand corner of the smaller piece of Whisper White.
  • Adhere strips of Halloween Night DSP at an angle.  Lay them all out on your cardstock before adding adhesive so you are sure you have enough length.  Hanging over the edge is best - you can trim it off before attaching to the card.
  • Assemble layers (DSP, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black) as shown.
  • Pop up onto the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

My Paper Pumpkin - This is a Test(tube)

My September Paper Pumpkin arrived and I absolutely LOVE it and the potential that comes with it.

After I made up some of them, I decided they really need something to hold them up. There are a lot of plans online for holding tubes, spritzers, etc. but being a late night and getting ready for tomorrow's event with Diana Gibbs, I didn't have the time to build something from scratch.

Then I remembered I have the White Gift Boxes with the plastic sleeve around them.

I punched 4 holes in the top with the 3/4" circle punch, put some of the blue tissue paper from the Paper Pumpkin box in the bottom so they didn't go in so far, plus it keeps them from sliding around.

Then decorated the sides of the box with 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" Halloween Night DSP.

I think with more time, these will be even cuter doing more to the box or the tubes. These will be some really cute gifts for the holidays and I think they can go beyond Halloween!

DID YOU KNOW, you can order refills of past Paper Pumpkin kits when you are a subscriber to My Paper Pumpkin? I think these will go quickly, so if you want them better sign up quickly and get your hands on them!

Please be sure to select me as your Demonstrator on your Paper Pumpkin order and I'll send you something special.

Here is the top of the box.  I also had to cut down the side flaps inside the box so the tubes would slide down easily.  They also help to hold them in place a bit.

Thank you for looking in today!  I'd love for you to sign up for My Paper Pumpkin with me as your Demonstrator.  I think you'll enjoy the fun weekly kits.

Happy Saturday!

Lovely as a Tree for Sympathy

Time for another sympathy card.  This one was expected, but it doesn't make it any easier.  I suppose I should have made them sooner, but there's just something wrong with making a sympathy card for someone specific, before it is needed.  

Thank goodness for Lovely as a Tree.  This set is great for so many things - I hope this set never goes away.


Soft Suede Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Very Vanilla - 5 1/4" x 4"    OR  5 3/8" x 4 1/8" (second vision)
Soft Suede 5" x 3 3/4"
Very Vanilla - 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"

Trees stamped with Crumb Cake - Lovely as a Tree
Sentiments stamped with Soft Suede - Thoughts and Prayers

Happy Friday!!  Tomorrow I'm off with some of the girls to stamp at Diana Gibbs' and Rhonda Morgan Fall Fest!  Can't wait to stamp all day with friends and show you all what we made in the next few days!

Thank you for looking in today.  ~ Donna

Cookie Cutter Reindeer

Here are a couple of cute little reindeer couples to share.

If you look closely, you'll see they are a little bit 3-D.  After stamping and punching the reindeer heads with the Cookie Cutter Punch, I also stamped 2 additional "cookies" and then trimmed off the arms and the head - YIKES!

Place the first one down on the card directly, then add Stampin' Dimensionals (I use half of a dimensional) and add the 2nd layer over the top, but slightly off to the side a bit, so you can see back two legs.  Cute, right?

Real Red - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Crumb Cake - 4 5/8" x 3 3/8"
Candy Cane Lane DSP - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4"
Crumb Cake for inside - 5 1/4" x 4"

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Thursday!  ~ Donna
