NC SU Demos Halloween/Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's NC SU Demo's blog hop. The theme is Halloween and Fall. I'm glad to be back participating after a 3 month hiatus. Follow through the links to see lots of great ideas using some favorite Stampin' Up! supplies.

I have several projects for you today. I designed them all for the Cookie Cutter Stamp Camp I'm offering on October 8th. We'll also make some Christmas projects that day, but since they don't fit the theme of the blog hop, you'll have to come back another day to see those.

First up is a little Halloween treat. All of today's projects use the Cookie Cutter Halloween set and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. Colors: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, and Whisper White.

I used the same vampire and a couple of his buddies to make this card. I don't send a lot of Halloween cards, but thought this 3.5 x 5 note card would be fun to send to a friend during October. The label is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. You could easily switch it out for the Happy Halloween stamp from that set if you want a Halloween card. The striped DSP is from the retired Regals DSP Stack but you could easily substitute the diagonal stripes or even polka dots from the current patterns.

I used my aqua painter to add a little color to the characters - very light Crumb Cake on the mummy since his white bandages have colored with age, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant on the vampire, and a little Smoky Slate on the skeleton.

I found little 3x5 notepads in the office supply store and just had to do something with them. Here's what I came up with. I like to keep notepads somewhat simple because I don't want pieces falling off as I carry them around in my purse. NOTES was stamped with the Labeler alphabet set.

Here's a side view. You can see the notepad under the cover I made.

I've seen these cute little Cookie Cutter clips all over the place and had to make some. They are CASEd, but I've seen them so many places I don't even know who to credit with the original idea. Here are just a couple of the ones I made.

And the last project for today is a Fall card featuring that adorable scarecrow. The background was embossed using the Big Shot and Fiesta embossing folder.

I hope you've gotten some good ideas using this cute set and punch. Contact me if you'd like to come to the class on the 8th and make these projects (and more) for yourself. My downline is invited to come for free, so if you sign up under me, you can do so, too. There are lots of benefits to being a demonstrator. I'd love to talk about them with you.
