Herringbone Halloween Card

I recently purchased the MDS2 upgrade and I LOVE IT!  It’s so much easier to work with and so many new features.  I was so excited about it that I created this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge project using MDS2 to create the Herringbone technique.  I used the Houndstooth & Scaringbone digital DSP to create the background.  It was so easy to create digitally.  For a tutorial on how to create this technique go to SCS.  So easy!!

Playing with Pennants and Banners

This week Hand Stamped Sentiments is having a Banner Bash!  Create any paper craft project using banners or pennants.  I’ve been wanting to use my new Halloween stamp set Howl-o-Ween Creeps so here’s a sneak peek of one of the monster images and sentiments.  This set is so much fun!  I can’t wait to create more Halloween items with this set.  I stamped the Frankenstein image on water color paper then used a blender pen and ink pads to color him.  I punched him out with 1-3/4 inch circle punch and sponged the edges with Basic Black ink.  Since the theme for the challenge is pennants I decided to create one large pennant using the Perfect Pennants die for the front of my card.  I then printed with My Digital Studio the DSP layers.  I used Cast a Spell and the Night Owl Digital kit.  I hope you’re inspired to start thinking about your fall and Halloween projects.  The Howl-o-Ween Creeps stamp set will be available on September 1st.

H & G Pennant Birthday

H & G because, Hi!, the pennants are a sneak peek of a new stamp set in the NEW Stampin’ Up! CATALOG.  LOVE IT!!! Now you can stamp and punch pennants for any occasion with the Pennant Parade Stamp Set and Petite Pennants Builder Punch.   I can’t show you the stamp set or the punch.  But the stamp set has stamps for almost every occasion.  Love the Petite Pennants Builder Punch because now you can have perfect pennants.  Both of these items will be available to order on July 1st, 2011.  Bye!, because the Love Letter DSP is retiring at the end of the month.  I love this paper.  It was perfect for this card.  Whimsical yet elegant.  Just a reminder that on June 30th many items will retire.  Click HERE to see all the retired items.
