Trick or Treat File Folder Card

I just got my Stampin' Up order in yesterday and I couldn't wait to try out the new Envelope Punch Board.  You can make over 60 different sizes of envelopes with it!   I had a "play date" with my friend Amanda the other day and she showed me how to do these great cards that look like file folders! There are several videos out there on the web to show you how to do this.  The card looks difficult but it is really simple using the punch board.  I decorated mine with some retired Stampin' Up designer paper I had from last year.  The Trick or Treat stamp is one of four holiday designs in the 'Tags 4 You" stamp set on page 37 of the holiday catalog.  You can also buy the punch for these stamps as part of a bundle and save 15%!
Hope you enjoyed my "file folder" card.  If you would like to see more information on the Envelope Punch Board, click on the 'Shop at my Store Now" button to the left, click on Products then Tools in the left column.

Thanks for stopping by!

Frankenstein Halloween Card

Now isn't he cute!  I can't say I came up with this card but I did find it online and thought it was sooo cute!  I am amazed with what people can come up with using the Stampin' Up products that they have.  The head is made from the Top Note Die!  Simply cut one out in green and one in black.  I used pear pizzazz in this card.  The black Top Note you will cut in half to make his hair.  Cut some jagged lines in the hair to come up with his bangs.  

His eyes are made from punching out 2 circles in white with the 1" circle punch and  2 circles in
black with the 3/4" punch.  The eyelids are made with the 1" circle punch in the same green color.  

Cut the circle in half for the eyelids.  The nose is also half a green 1" circle and like the eyelids, are attached with dimensionals to give them some pop!  I used my white gel pen to add the white of the eyes and a black marker to add the mouth and scar.  The background paper is some retired designer paper from Stampin' Up that I had leftover from last year.

If you have questions, leave me a comment.   Hope you enjoyed my "creation" as much as I enjoyed making it.  Happy Stamping!
