Bling Pumpkins

Hi there Ceal here to share another card made with supplies you can find at a Scrap N Place. This card was simple to make, I used a Cheery Lynn die and some glitter paper. I cut my pumpkins out in orange and to make the leaves green and the stems brown I just colored them with Copic markers.  I also did my glitter paper the same way it was originally silver and I just used some orange markers and colored it in.  Don't you just love the strip of ribbon at the bottom? It's so pretty!

Swing/Flip Card

It's Ceal here to share some Halloween goodies with you today. For my swing card  I used some Authentique papers and an Impression Obsession die. In case you don't have any of the flip card dies. it is easy to make yourself with a few cuts and some scoring. 
 You will need
1 piece of 5 1/2" x 6 3/4" cardstock or heavy weight design paper  for the card base
Slide your 5 1/2" x 6 3/4" cardstock into the paper cutter horizontally.

 Line up the cardstock at the 2 3/4" mark, and score from 0" to 1 1/4" as well as from 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
At the 4" mark, make another score identical to the first.

Slide your cardstock into your paper cutter vertically. Line it up at the 4 1/4" mark. 
Cut from 1 1/4" to 2 3/4" to meet your score line.
Lift your cutting blade, put it down on your second score and cut up to 5 1/2".
Repeat this step on the opposite side 

Slide your cardstock into your paper cutter horizontally again. Line it up with the 5 1/2" mark.
Cut from 1 1/4" to 4 1/4", connecting your two horizontal cuts.
Repeat this step on the opposite side as well.
Here is a template with the measurements
 hope this helps you make your own swing/flip card

Halloween Card

Hello Stampers! I have a card to share with you today. I love the banners on Authentique's Thriller sticker sheet. There are so many fun elements from this one sticker sheet to use. I cut out the hexagons from the Thriller patterned paper to incorporate into the banner on this Halloween card.  The sentiments are from the sticker sheet. I hot glued the shapes to the jute to make sure it holds. I then combined the black glittered paper with the plaid and adhered all the elements onto it. 

Supplies (All Supplies can be found at A Scrapin' Place):
Papers: Authentique (Thriller Collection), Best Creations, Inc. (Black Glitter Cardstock), Cream Cardstock
Accessories: Canvas Home Basics (Tags & Ties), Melissa Frances pearls

Emily's Snapshot Album was stuffed full of "FUN" techniques! The best ending to an awesome day! =)


What a FANTASTIC morning!!! These gals made some awesome Chalkboards! FUN-FUN-FUN!

Spooky Banner

 Hello Stampers! Halloween wouldn't be complete without some fun decorations. I created the banner using a pre-made blank banner and covered them with pretty Halloween papers.
I used the letters from the Authentique Thriller sticker sheet to spell out the word "Spooky." 

I then popped it onto the individual triangles with 3-D foam tape and the black pearl was from Melissa Frances which  I colored to match the theme. The final details on the banner was to add distressed glitter along the edges.

Once the decorations on the triangle pieces were completed, I used hot glue to adhere them to the black ribbon.  

Supplies (All Supplies can be found at A Scrapin' Place):
Papers: Authentique (Thriller Collection), Paper Accents (Orange Cream Cardstock), Black Cardstock
Accessories: Ranger (black soot distressed glitter), Canvas Home Basics (Tags & Ties), Melissa Frances pearls, Black Ribbon

Happy Haloween

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Tanya here with another halloween card.  This is another quick and easy one you can do in about 10 minutes tops

Basically it's a lot of matting with each being about 1/4'' smaller than the last.  I inked the edges with the colorbok chalk ink on everything and then added two layers of ribbon (black and orange).  I then took black cardstock to make the web using Memory Box Web Die, added glue all over the top of the web (you don't have to be too careful because it will help stick to the ribbon afterwards) and then added some stickles glitter.

The sentiment is just something I typed on the computer and printed out on my own
SEPTEMBER 13th @ 7:00 p.m. There are a couple spots open. Just e-mail or call the Store
if you'd like to join in the fun!

Hello Stampers! I am so happy to be sharing my first post with you as a Bling Girl! I used the Authentique line of patterned papers and sticker sheets to pull my card together.

I used Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps scalloped border die then I added some texture to the card with various stitchings. The sentiment is added to the lower portion of the card using 3-D foam tape. The circle on top of the bow is from the Authentique Detail Sticker Sheet.

Happy Halloween

Wow I am so excited to be sharing with you as a  Bling girl.  My normal day is Tuesdays but things didn't come together as quickly for us (Myself and Terri) so I am making up a day today but will be starting my normal post schedule next week.

So on to today's project.  My project today is a quick card for halloween

the base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, with the black card stock layer being cute to 4 x 5 1/4 and the border die cut out along one edge.  I then cut the designer paper to 3 3/4 x 5 to make a matted design, cute the ribbon to 5 1/2, glued it down the middle and made three bows to glue in sequence down the strip of ribbon.

I used the following on my project:

Happy Halloween border die - Memory Box
Happy Haunting paper - Carta Bella
Black card stock
Ivory card stock
Black/Orange gingham ribbon

Happy Halloween

Today my card was made using some fun Stamps and dies by Taylored Expressions,  the stamps and dies are made to match so you can always get a good cut on your cut out images.  When you use these you want to make a templet first and line it up with your stamped image.. I used some removable tape to hold it in place.
The products used for this card are
Savannah Border 98221 by Memory Box
Madera Corner 98221 by Memory Box
Purple, orange, white and black paper
Taylored Expressions Totally Tags Halloween
Taylored Expressions Taylored dies.
Eclipse embossing powder by  Powder Kegs
Versa Mark ink
Color Box Chalk Charcol
dries clear glue
Black Ribbon
mounting tape.
I started by stamping on  white paper with Versa Mark ink,  and putting embossing powder on the ink and heat setting then cutting the images out.  When you put the templet over the top.. make sure you use some removable tape to hold the dies and the templet in place. .

Thanks for stopping by ...
