Goodness its been a busy time this last week! We had the launch of the Autumn/Winter Stampin Up catalogue on Tuesday and it's filled with so many lovely things for the coming months. I've been busy sending lots out. Do get in contact if you would like one and I'll pop one in the post to you.
I had a lot of fun making these cute Halloween treat bags. I have used some of the lovely new papers in the catalogue. These are called Spooky night and I love, love, love them! They are so fun. There is a coordinating stamp set called Spooky Cat and a cat punch in this suite and they are fabulous. You can punch the cats right out from the papers, stamp the cat image with all the Halloween words or punch out of cardstock and add the cat face from the stamp set. The black one looks exactly like my black cat too! I added a fun cat tag on a ribbon to my treat bag to match it. I can see this punch being used in all sorts of ways too on cards for all occasions.
You see the owl? He isn't part of the patterned paper. I stamped him onto the branch using the stamp set! How cool is that?! There are many other designs in this DSP (Designer Series Paper) most of which have coordinating images in the stamp set 😊
This is how I made the treat bags

I also had a lot of fun making a card using the Merry Café stamp set too. I love to see all the festive cups and drinks arrive in the coffee shops in the Autumn and Christmas which has filled my head with all sorts of ideas of things I can do with this set. It coordinates with the Coffee Café stamps from the Annual catalogue giving me more usage from both sets too. I love how Stampin Up do that.
I have used some of the Spooky Night papers here too. I have stamped the cup image onto the paper and cut it out. The pumpkins are also cut from the papers. The larger leaf background stamp is from the colourful Seasons stamp set and the leaves are cut out using the Seasonal Layers thinlits. The colours I have used are Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.
There are images in this set for all seasons and given my love of coffee I will be using it quite a bit!
I have also another little project on the go using the Halloween papers and stamps which I'm quite excited to show you as soon as it has been finished!
