Hi! Great weekend here and hope it was at your house too!
     LSU had another great game and I had some great tailgate food I’ll be sharing with you as soon as I get the low down on that!

     I just visited stampinup.com again and clicked on Blog. This post was from October 8th and it had some great ideas! Read on!


Fall Fest!

I love when I can use a stamp set
for more than one occasion. I thought I’d share some different ways to
use Fall Fest throughout the fall season . . . and beyond!

First of all, here’s a card to show your gratitude. For the pumpkins, I
used a rock and roll technique with three ink colors (Cajun Craze, Hello
Honey, and Pumpkin Pie), then spritzed water on the stamp before
stamping on Watercolor Paper. Then, I used the coordinating Framelits
set to cut out each image. I used the same faux watercolor technique on
the leaves using Mossy Meadow ink. I can’t seem to get enough of this
technique. It never looks the same twice and that’s what I love about
it—it’s one of a kind!

Now, let’s get you ready for Halloween.  Using the jack-o-lantern faces,
I added a face to my little ghost using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the
large White Filter Paper circle.  (No cutting required!) I finished it
off with a little bit of Basic Black Baker’s Twine—so simple and so
cute. This would make a fun classroom treat.

The last project I made was inspired by my home. I love to decorate for
the seasons and recently found some blue-green pumpkins that look great
in my home. I added some gold accents to dress them up a bit. (I got the
blue-green look through a combination of stamping off and rock and
roll.) This one took a little bit of trial and error and it never turned
out the same twice. Play around with some stamps, ink, and paper to see
what you can create!
