A Halloween Hoot!

My Friend, Hootie!

Hoot! Hoot! Isn’t this owl the cutest? Especially with that cute little trick or treat bag!  And look at those masked eyes filled with mischievous rhinestones – he is definitely ready for a night out on the town full of Halloween fun.  This little guy is from the hostess set “Warmest of Wishes” featured in the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog which can be purchased with FREE hostess dollars earned at a holiday party or workshop.

The background paper featured on this card is from the new Designer Series Paper pack called “Pick Your Poison” which coordinates with the new stamp set “Piece of Poison”.  I got my “Trick or Treat” saying from this set which includes some other really creepy stamps great for making all of your Halloween creations.

That beautiful black border at the top of the card was made using the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch and the finishing touch was the new Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon which I ruffled a bit before placing the Designer Printed Brad in Calypso Coral.  I like my new owl friend, I think I will call him Hootie!

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Warmest of Wishes and Piece of Poison; Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White; Ink:  Basic Black; Marker:  Pumpkin Pie; Designer Series Paper:  Pick your Poison; Accessories:  Owl Builder Punch, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, 1/2″ Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon, Designer Printed Brads, Rhinestones, and Dimensionals

What’s Hootin’ Valentine?!

It’s a New Year and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner already! I created this cute Valentine Card as part of a baggie book sampler that my downline group, Sherindipity Stampers, and I worked on last weekend.  We prepared samples using 7 different stamp sets to show our customers for upcoming workshops and open houses featuring stamps and accessories from the new Mini Occasions catalog which runs from January 4 – April 30 and the Sale-A-Bration catalog which runs from January 25 – March 31. Aren’t the little owls so cute? They are made by stamping the owl from the new “Punch Bunch” set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and then punching them out using Stampin’ Up!’s owl punch.  You can get this stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase beginning January 24! I was so happy with the way this card turned out, especially using the new Red Glimmer Paper from the Mini Occasions catalog, that I decided to use the idea for my scrapbook layout class that I will be teaching at a crop in Ocean City later this month at the Princess Royale Hotel.

I wanted to be able to show how you can extend the card idea all the way into a scrapbook layout when you have such a versatile stamp set such as the “Filled With Love” stamp set that originated in the Holiday Mini catalog last fall but has been extended through 1/24/11.  Check out my Stampin’ Up! website to see the great “Filled With Love” Bundle Promotion Details featuring this stamp set, a pack of designer series paper and FREE package of bitty buttons.
