Haunted House 3-D

create-with-cheryl-haunted-house

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is featuring 3-D items!  I selected this page from Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper for the house because it’s a heavier weight of paper- and because it’s so cute with a shiny spider web!

Just so you know, Stampin’ Up! has Designer Series Papers (which happen to be on a special sale this month only!  Buy 3, get 1 FREE!).  These cost $11.00 for a pack.

“Specialty” Designer Series Papers cost $13 for a pack.  They always have 2 sheets of special- shiny- bling-y paper that’s especially pretty!  So now you know.

This is one of my favorites!!  Remember the Washi Tape Punch?!  Glad I still have mine!  These remind me of some bell bottoms I had in 8th grade that I sewed floral fabric into the bottom outside legs!  Groovy!

Paper Pumpkin in Unexpected Places

Several years ago, demonstrator Cheryl Hamilton brought some stamping supplies over to her mother-in-law’s house so the family could have some fun crafting. Her mother-in-law wasn’t interested and the supplies sat on the table for a few days until her nephew came to visit. Cheryl asked Abe, who has Down syndrome, if he’d like to make a card from her Paper Pumpkin kit. He dove right in and he didn’t stop until the entire kit was complete! He’s been hooked on Paper Pumpkin ever since.
His mom, Vicki, shares that, “Abe loves art and has always liked art classes. Because he is challenged in the area of fine motor skills, he would often get discouraged with his results. But when he started getting Paper Pumpkin, he was so proud of the great cards and crafts he could turn out! Paper Pumpkin is so foolproof and the results are guaranteed to be beautiful. So, he feels so successful and can’t wait to get the next box!”
Cheryl says an unexpected bonus is she’s grown closer to her nephew because of Paper Pumpkin even though she lives in Hawaii and he in New Mexico. They send pictures and comments to each other on Facebook every month after the new kit comes out. She’s had some of her fellow demonstrators send him cards for his birthday, as well. What did he have to say about that? Pretty much what we all think: “It does make my heart feel so happy to get cards in the mail.”

Don’t you love it?!!  I think Abe should be the Paper Pumpkin Spokesperson!!  Speaking of Paper Pumpkin, I have a new orange box on the table that’s been calling my name…

Paper Pumpkin BOGO!

Paper Pumpkin has a great offer for anyone who hasn’t tried it!

BUY ONE MONTH, GET THE NEXT MONTH FREE!

Every month you get an orange box in your mailbox!  You never know what’s inside!  Here’s what I found in my mailbox last week…

Today is my first official day as a team member & the theme today is Fourth of July (or red/white/blue).  I’m hosting a block party this weekend, so I came up with this little treat to give out.

SSINK 4th of Jul3

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits were the perfect size for my Red Vines.  Yum!  I remember eating these at the movies when I was a kid.

SSINK 4th of July2

Wish you could see the sparkle on the little swirls where I’ve swiped it with Wink of Stella!

SSINK 4th of Jul3

This bag, especially with the doily, makes me think of the banners on Makawao Avenue here on Maui.  Most people probably don’t realize this, but we have lots of cowboys (Paniolos) in Hawaii and a big rodeo is held each year on July 4th on my island of Maui.

Being a part of this team is a big challenge for me, and it’s sure to keep me stampin’!  My favorite thing to do!!  I’d appreciate comments any time!  Please subscribe to my blog via email (on the right bar of this page) so that you don’t miss anything!

See the sparkle?  That’s from a new product I just love, called Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  Just brush it on.  It dries immediately & the glitter stays put!

One final tip:  To mail these cute honeycombs, leave them closed with a note for the recipient to “peel & open”.  That way they don’t arrived squished!

Thanks for stopping by!
