Witches' Night!

Today, I'm going to share a few more spooky Halloween cards.  This is a very cute set, which can be fun or scary, depending on how you accessorize it.

I love the colors on this card and the little bats flying up from the spooky sign.  A touch of Black Glimmer paper adds a cool highlight!

Here's another one that uses that cute Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper, as well as a strip of Black Glimmer paper.  This one's a bit spookier!

Here's the scary version of this set!  Rich Razzleberry is sponged over the spider webs and Old Olive gives the raven a spooky look!  A strip of Rich Razzleberry, embossed with the Chevron Embossing Folder adds a nice touch, along with a soft highlighting of gold ink daubed here and there.

The really neat thing about this whole set is that you don't have to cut the signs out...there's a Framelit set for them...the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies.  Happy Halloween!

Sparkly Seasons!

Today I'm going to share another set of cute cards from the new Holiday Catalog.  This set is called Sparkly Seasons and can be used all year round!
Isn't this just adorable?  I love the scary background Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Happy Haunting Washi Tape looks great behind the Seasonal Frames Thinlit die (Spooky!).

Here's a card that can be used for Christmas or Birthday.  The Ballerina twirls prettily on the Silver embossed base.  A touch of Dazzling Details adds sparkle to her tutu and a Rhinestone completes the look.

Here is the Winter version of this set!  The cute snowman is colored with Stampin' Markers and Dazzling Details.  I love the snowy background of the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Seasonal Frames Thinlit "snow" die cut is punched out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  A strip of Season of Cheer Washi Tape finishes it off!

I love seeing how one stamp set can be used to create so many different looks!

A new Holiday Catalog...and a new Swap!

So the new Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Catalog is out.  But it's not's huge!  And it's full of so many wonderful things this time that our group had to have a huge swap to try out all of the new goodies.  So we each made 90 cards!  And swapped them with each other.  :)

Here is the first set of cards I'm going to share.  These cards are from the Among the Branches stamp set.

This cute Halloween card uses the new Woodland Embossing Folder and the Spider Web of my favorites!  A little Black Glimmer paper adds some sparkle!

This stamp set is so versatile, you can use it for all three Fall/Winter holidays!   This card has one of the Into the Woods wooden embellishments and also uses the new Razzleberry ribbon.  Some Gold Glimmer paper finishes it off!

I love this pretty Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Santa Claus adds such a sweet old-fashioned feel to these cards.  This card also uses the new Softly Falling Embossing Folder, which gives the look of a light snowfall in the background.  A circle of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper adds some sparkle behind the 'ornament.'

I hope you've enjoyed this set of cards.  I plan to post more of the great cards I received in this swap in the coming weeks.  Happy Stamping!
