Howl-o-ween Treat

CreateFA15HopWelcome

Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop.  Do you LOVE our new look?  WE DO!!!  We are gearing up for the Holiday Mini and FABULOUS FALL!!!  This week we are doing Halloween again!   Oh the fun!

Howl-o-ween Sat HopI decided for my card this week I wanted to go really simple.  At first I was going to do just white, black and silver and then I decided for just that little pop of orange.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5
  • Silver Glimmer – 2 1/2″ circle – add to panel
  • Everyday Chic dsp – 2 prints 1/2 x 4, layer onto Whisper White on an angle and trim off ends.  Add to card base using dimensionals.
  • Stamp hat using Archival Basic Black, cut out and add to card front.
  • Tangelo Twist – cut out BOO! and add to card front.
  • Punch out 3 small stars from Basic Black and add to card.

And it’s Halloween ‘funtastic!”.  What can I say…it was late when I was typing it and ALL I’ve been doing for the past week is grading!  LOL!!!

Howl-o-ween Treat

Howl-o-weenTreatWhat can I saw…I absolutely LOVE this little (well actually not so little!) owl!  As I work on projects I tend to have extra ‘pieces’ leftover (I know I’ve mentioned that before) and tend to have them sititng on my desk.  So if I need to come up with a card quick, I clean off my desk, find my leftover pieces and make a card from them.  Most of these were leftover except the base and two extra panels.

Here’s the details…

  • Rich Razzleberry – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Basic Black – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card base on an angle.
  • Smoky Slate – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Woodland Embossing Folder, using the White Gel Pen to dd accents to the tree trunks and add to card base on an angle.
  • Whisper White – punch 2 1/2″ circle and add to card base.
  • Black Glimmer – 3/8 x 5 1/2, add to card base.
  • Stamp owl in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White, cut out, add to card front.  Punch out two 1/4″ circles from Black Glimmer and add to eyes.
  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock – cut out ‘BOO’ and add using dimensionals.

Such an easy card…especially when you use the things from on top of your desk.  I do like the simple color scheme.

It won’t be long now until the Create with Connie and Mary September Mini Session will be ready for you.  Stay tuned for more details!

Tour de Freaks – August

freakwelcome2013Welcome to the Tour de Freaks August Blog Hop.  With the new Holiday Mini (and oh my…is it ever FANTASTIC!!!) right around the corner, the freaks are at it with a sneak peek from the mini!

If you are going forward through the hop, you arrived here from Heidi Boos Stuck On Stampin’ blog.  What GREAT projects!

It was difficult for me to pick one thing to use but I finally decided to use the Howl-o-ween Treat set…it is just SOOOO adorable!

Howl-o-ween Treat Card

Okay…LOVE this owl and decided to pair it up with the BOO from Cheer All Year.  Here’s the details…

  • Tangelo Twist –  5 1/2 x 8 1 /2 folded
  • Cut out five different strips (Happy Hauntings) – 1 1/2 x 3 3/4 and add to card front.
  • Tangelo Twist – punch 2 1/2 circle, sponge with Tangelo Twist, add using dimensinoals.
  • Black Glimmer – 3/8 x 5 1/2, add to card front using dimensionals.

  • Stamp BOO using Memento Black on Very Vanilla, punch out using 1″ circle punch, layer onto 1 1/4″ Crush Curry Scallop Circle.  add to card front using dimensionals.

Howl-o-ween Treat BottleFor my 3D, I took the easy way out and decorated a little bottle that I found at Michael’s.  SOOO easy!  Here’s the details…

  • White Bottle (got in the $1 bin just this past week)
  • Tangelo Twist – cut out with Lots of Labels framelit.  It was a little long so a ran it through again to cut a little off the end so it fit better
  • Black Glimmer – 5/8 strip – wrap around bottle and trim off (end hidden behind owl)
  • Stamp owl on Whisper White using Rich Razzleberry, cut out, add using dimensionals.
  • Black Glimmer – punch out two 1/4″ circles and add over eyes.
  • Stamp BOO using Tangelo Twist on Whisper White, punch out with 1″ Circle Punch and add using dimensionals.
  • Add some silver Cording Trim through a small Basic Black button, tie around top of bottle and tie into a bow to finish off.

And here’s my group shot…
