How cute is this!!!  My card is full of new products from the Holiday Catalog and I love them all!!  One of the best things about this new catalog is all of the amazing BUNDLES of products that Stampin’ Up! did for us.  This particular card features the HOWL-O-WEEN TREAT stamp set and BOO TO YOU Framelits that I got at a 15% discount with the bundle!

Howl-o-ween Treats Bundle

Since there are coordinating framelits for this set, I had this card put together in no time!  In fact, I have a quick little video to show you exactly what I did, including a fun little trick with the new SPIDER WEB DOILIES.

See what I mean!! Quick and easy card that packs a lot of punch!  Isn’t the doily trick so fun!  Now I have a little extra piece to use for later!

Bold bright colors make this a stand out!  The spider web doily makes for a perfect background on the treat bag!

Envelope Punch Board Treat Tutorial

I am back with a tutorial for the fun little treat that I shared last week.  I had LOTS of emails about how to make these cute little guys, so I here you go!  First let me show you a couple of new designs that I did.

SO CUTE, right??  I think the googlie eyes really made these cool!!

Envelope Punch Board Treat 1

This first one has a Black Glimmer paper hat, so fashionable for a skeleton!

Envelope Punch Board Treat 2

This next guy just preferred the bare bones!  Of course I had to use Black Glimmer paper somehow, so I added the “BOO”!

Ok, now to the nitty gritty!!  I am trying something different this time, something I hope will be helpful.  I wrote up the tutorial in PDF form for you to download!!  I would love to know if that is something you’d like in place of the tutorial just in the blog post, so leave me a comment and tell me what you think!

Trick or Treat!

Have I told you how much I am loving HOWL-O-WEEN TREATS??  I am a sucker for stamp sets that come with coordinating framelits and when they are bundled with a discount, well…who can resist?!

For today’s card though, I didn’t need the framelits, I went simple and let the bold sentiment take center stage.

Trick or Treat by becreativewithnicole.com

Isn’t this fun!!  Bet you guessed it was going to be a SHAKER!  What got me thinking about doing this one was not only the nice bold sentiment, but the cool new HAPPY HAUNTING DESIGNER WASHI TAPE.

I love this style of shaker, they are easy to make and easy to mail!  I added silver sequins that I took from the Cottage Greetings Card Kit and BLACK GLIMMER paper stars made with the Confetti Star Border Punch.

Happy Scenes Shaker + Tutorial!

As you know, I am obsessed with SHAKERS!  There’s just something about sequins that makes me happy!  So of course I was thinking of possible shaker cards as I looked through the upcoming Holiday Catalog, and there is a set just perfect…..Happy Scenes.

Window Shaker by becreativewithnicole.com

What a cool window scene!!!  I used a spider web design from the Happy Haunting Designer Paper, is it perfect or what?!

Halloween Shaker by becreativewithnicole.com

The window is a perfect shaker over the spider webs.  I added silver and black sequins plus a few Silver Glimmer paper stars punched with the Confetti Star Border Punch.  I also added a few Black Glimmer paper stars as well to the card front.  Just wait until you see the Black Glimmer paper in person, it’s AWESOME!
