Stampin' Up! Grateful For You Card and Tutorial

Happy Monday fellow crafters.  Boy, Monday sure came fast this weekend.  I think I could have used one more day, how about you?

So in continuing with the fall theme and of course the Fall Fest Stamp Set, I made this card.  The sentiment in my opinion can be used for a Thank You card as well as a general thinking of you...I really love one layer stamping/cards.  I consider this a one layer card even though I have the stamped piece matted on the card base.

Check out my latest video on how I created this card from start to finish below:

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you like today's card project.  We will be starting a new series soon as we start counting down to Christmas.  We will be focusing on holiday cards, but plan to throw in some little extra's here and there.  I hope you will plan to join me on the journey.

Stampin'Up! Halloween Treat Cups

Happy Friday everyone!

Aren't these the cutest?  They are so easy to make and require very few supplies.

Watch the video below to see how I made the black and white treat cup from start to finish.

To make the pumpkin face treat cup, follow the same directions in the video for creating the cup itself, but instead of stamping the faces, sponge the paper with your coordinating ink (I used Calypso Coral in the one above).  For the face, use your pennant punch or cut triangles from a 1 3/8" square punch.  For the mouth, I used the large oval and 1" circle punch.  Attach with Tombo add a curled pipe cleaner to seal the bag and you are done!  These would be so easy to mass produce and look so cute sitting around as decorations too!

Thanks for stopping by, all the supplies used are linked below.  See you next week!

Cutting Measurements:
Basic Black Cardstock:  2 pieces cut at 8-1/2 x 9-1/2
