Unfortunately as I signed up to Stampin Up only two weeks ago it wasnt worth me buying any Halloween stamps. Five days after signing up we had our quarterly training in Peterborough and part of this is they do swaps but I didnt have any so was swapping Bekkas for her.

I got to take photos of all the swaps to give me ideas and I thought I would share the Halloween ones with you today, unfortunately I dont know who made them so if you are reading this and it was you let me know so I can credit you in this post

Lovely as a tree

Today I have made a card with the lovely as a tree stamp set and glittered it up so it looks like its all frosted, I so love this stamp and it was first on my list of items when I signed up to Stampin Up!

I used the scallop trim border down the sides of an embossed piece of gumball green paper. The sentiment is from the curly cute stamp set.

The red paper is embossed using the polka dot folder

I have decided to enter this card for the following challenges

Thanks for stopping bye

Serene Silhouettes - monochramatic

I have used one of the stamps from the Serene Silhouette collection (127324) and stamped it with versamark and clear embossed onto 3 pieces of card and then cut them into thirds and matched up.

I have used the stitched ribbon in raspberry ripple around the edge of the image and stamped using the curly cute sentiment (120510)

It looks a little wonky in this picture but it is really the surface I have photographed it on, I was having trouble getting the light and the background right sorry.

I have entered this card into the following challenges

Charisma Cardz - Dont be square
Less is more - a sketch to follow

Thanks a bunch

I have made this card using the Friendship Preserves stamp set (item 127910) and cut out the card with Framelits dies (item 129021)

This card was made at the pasionettes quarterly training session on Sunday, however I feel mine is missing something on the grey card stock, not sure what though, or maybe I should have moved the "flaps" up a little?

Rainbow butterflies

Here I have used the papillion potpourri set again and have used the 2012-2014 in colour combo of Midnight muse, Raspberry tipple, Primrose petals, Summer starfruit and Gumball green.

I have stamped the butterflies in the same colour and voila! a very effective and easy card

I hope you aren't too fed up of butterflies as I have plenty more cards to come from this range, but I promise I will get one of the other sets out soon but these are just so easy to use!

Elements of style

For this card I have used the elements of style stamp set (item 118611 on page 113) I stamped the flower onto 1st edition specialty paper (item 121878 Page 162) and coloured. I then cut another piece of designer paper in Raspberry ripple colour and scalloped the edge.
The sentiment is again from elements of style set and the ribbon is stitched ribbon again in raspberry ripple (item 126845 on page 172)
