Spooky Cat Shaker Card – TTTC#017

It’s Thursday and time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  This week’s challenge board is another fun filled opportunity to be inspired and stretch your creativity.

For my card I chose the second row across:  layers, circle, sequins

Stampin Up Spooky Cat Halloween Shaker Card - Rosanne Mulhern

I finally got around to creating a Halloween card and using Spooky Cat Bundle.  This fun bundle includes the Spooky Cat photopolymer stamp set along with the awesome Cat Punch. And if that wasn’t enough, this product suite also includes the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper with images that can be cut with the Cat Punch.

Here’s the details

  • The card base is Very Vanilla thick card stock cut at 5″ x 5″ with a pattern from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper cut 1/8″ smaller.
  • The next layer is Pumpkin Pie card stock cut at 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.  Before creating the shaker, I stamped a couple of mice from the Spooky Cat stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink.
  • To create the shaker, I cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock at 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.  Using two framelits from the Layering Circles framelits I created the window and the scallop trim.
  • I created a “pocket” using a window sheet and taped it to the back of the pumpkin pie panel and filled it with some halloween colored sequins.
  • Hint:  I also glued a few sequins directly to the DSP so that they all didn’t sink to the bottom of the circle.
  • The cat image is cut from the DSP with the Cat Punch.  I punched another cat in Basic Black and offset it to create a shadow. It’s popped on the card with dimensionals.
  • I finished the cat off with a Linen Thread bow.
  • The banner was created with the Bunch of Banners framelits. and popped with dimensionals.

  • Another image from the Spooky Cat stamp set created the inside sentiment.
  • I created a fun envelope using the Envelope Punch Board and embellishing it with some Designer Series Paper and a few more little mice marching across.

Copper Leaf Trio

Stampin Up Seasonal Layers and Paisley and Posies Friendship Card - Rosanne Mulhern

I’m really please with the way today’s card turned out (and that’s not always the case!).  I created the leaves using the Seasonal Layers framelits.  These framelits along with the coordinating Colorful Seasons stamp set have all you need to create cards for every season as well as most occasions…it’s all in this one bundle!

Here’s the details

  • The Cajun Craze card base measures 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.
  • The next layer is Very Vanilla cut at 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set in Versa Mark and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.
  • To create the striped pattern, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock at 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and added strips of Year of Cheer Washi tape in a striped pattern and then glued it to the Very Vanilla panel.
  • For the leaves I lightly sponged a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Cajun Craze ink and then cut with a framelit from the Seasonal Layers framelits.  Then using the more intricate leaf framelit, cut three out in Copper Foil and layered both.
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals pops all the leaves.

  • A simple strip of  Year of Cheer Washi Tape adds a little interest to the inside.

Polka Dot Birthday Delivery

Stampin Up Birthday Delivery Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern

Happy Monday…I have a bright and cheerful card to start the week off!  I loved the Birthday Delivery suite of products the moment I saw them in the Annual Catalog back in May.  I love all the whimsical characters and think that this suite is perfect for young, old, male or female.  Today’s card is a children’s birthday card.

Birthday Delivery Bundle #145294

Here’s the details

  • The A2 (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base is Real Red card stock with a mat of Whisper White card stock cut 1/4″ smaller (5 1/4″ x 4″).
  • The Whisper White layer was embossed with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder.
  • I punched a variety of 1/2″ circles from Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point card stock and glued them to the embossed circles.  You could skip the embossing and just adhere the dots randomly but the embossing gave me a uniform guide.
  • The sentiment is from the Celebrate You stamp set found in the Annual Catalog and is stamped in Real Red ink and cut with the Lots of Labels framelits. The fonts in this set are also whimsical, which I thought was perfect for this card.

  • I cut a few more labels and layered the sentiment.
  • The cute little squirrel is an image from a pattern found in the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and was hand cut and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some of the images on the paper can be cut using the Birthday Friends framelits.

Happy Fall!

Well, summer is over and fall has officially begun.  I’m not sure how I feel about this but I guess since there’s really nothing I can do about it…I’ll just roll with it and enjoy!  In honor of the first day of fall (and because I’m having such a good time with this set), my card today is a pretty reminder of the beauty of the season.

Stampin Up Count My Blessings Thinking of You Card Ideas - Rosanne Mulhern

 

Only one stamp set was used for all the images and sentiments on this card.  Count My Blessing stamp set really has it all when it comes to beautiful florals and perfect sentiments in an amazing font. This is another set that can take you well beyond the fall season and be used for many different occasions.

Here’s the details 

  • The card base is Very Vanilla thick card stock with a woodgrain mat from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock cut at 1 3/4″ x 5 3/8″.

  •  To achieve a multi-dimensional look, I first stamped the image on Very Vanilla card stock and colored it with a variety of Stampin’ Write Markers and cut it out using a circle die from the Layering Circles framelits.
  • I stamped and colored it a few more times on Very Vanilla card stock. But this time I cut out a couple of acorns and a leaf and adhered them over the image that was stamped on the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A simple Linen Thread bow adds a little more rustic charm.
  • Lastly, the Very Vanilla circle is glued to a Chocolate Chip stitched circle using the Stitched Shapes framelits and then popped on the sentiment panel with dimensionals.

  • Can you tell that I really enjoyed coloring these images!  I think they really give the inside of the card so much more detail and pair so well with that wonderful sentiment.
