Jar of Haunts Sneak Peak

Jar of Haunts, Halloween Night, Stampin' up!, BJ Peters, #jarofhaunts, #halloweennight, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #halloweencardYes, the Jar of Haunts is another sneak peak!   I am absolutely thrilled that Stampin' Up! has given us such great value and versatility. . . let me tell you what I mean.  You see the Jar of Love bundlet from the 2016-2017 Catalog has been VERY popular.  Then Stampin' Up! introduces 2 new seasonally oriented stamp sets in the Holiday catalog!   One for Christmas and one for Halloween!  To me that is extra value as I already have the framelits! 

Jar of Haunts, Halloween Night, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #jarofhaunts, #everydayjars, #halloweennight, #stampinbj.com, #bjpetersHere I have combined the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Halloween Night Washi Tape for the background.  The jar and the greeting comes from the Jar of Haunts stamp set.  Then I finished off with a piece of solid Black Baker's twine.  Note how I used the 1/2" circle punch to create a notch to hold the Baker's twine in place. 

Do you have your catalog yet?  I send them to my customers who have ordered from me in the past year.  If you would like to be one of my customers, contact me and we will get you set up!

Halloween Night, Stampin' Up!, #halloweenCheck out the Halloween Night specialty designer series paper - the last 2 sheets have silver for the design.   Pretty fun.   Here are the designs on the card.  Which papers would you choose to feature?

Spooky Fun, Halloween Night, Stampin' Up!, BJ PEters, #halloweennight, #spookyfun, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comI added a piece of the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper to spice things up just a bit.  Then the pumpkins and the greeting cut out with the Layering Ovals.  I love how the the Layering ovals set also has the scalloped oval choices to perfectly layer and highlight the focal point.

I inked the leaf up in Crushed Curry and then sponged on a little Cajun Craze with a sponge dauber before die cutting them with the framelit from the bundle. 

Thoughtful Branches, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #thoughtfulbranches, #stampinbj.com, #bjpetersIn the background you can see the Woodlands embossing folder that has been another favorite - so much so that Stampin' Up! brought it back!   So, if you don't have it, you better get that too! 




Fall Frame

Fall Frame, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Jar of Haunts, Spooky Fun, Vintage Leaves, #fallframe, #falldecor, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #cookiecutterhalloweenI love making decor frames - and this is the easy way!   Let me tell you why;  You see each square is made on a 2" square piece of cardstock.  That is layered on a 2 1/4" piece of cardstock.  So, as you are working with different stamp sets, create a 2" square and lay them off to the side.  When you get a collection of them, put them together and you easily have a piece of framed art that literally took you moments to put together since you did a little bit at a time!

  Fall Frame, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Jar of Haunts, Spooky Fun, Vintage Leaves, #fallframe, #falldecor, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #cookiecutterhalloweenHere you can see several of the squares.  Work with what you have.  The tree is the Sprinkles of Life which is the Ronald McDonald set from the last catalog but was carried over to this catalog because of its popularity. 

Fall Frame, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Jar of Haunts, Spooky Fun, Vintage Leaves, #fallframe, #falldecor, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #cookiecutterhalloweenI embossed the leaves in the new copper embossing powder.  Love the scarecrow.  The finishing touch is the Burlap ribbon.  Oh, and if you are wondering about the background, it is the Moroccan designer series paper!  (who would have guessed that?)

Now, what are you waiting for?  Get your own inchie frame started!

August Paper Pumpkin Bold Botanicals

Bold Botanicals, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #paperpumpkin, #boldbotanicals, #stampinbj.comI was thrilled with the Paper Pumpkin kit for August!   It's called Bold Botanicals!   Check out the cute images and greetings. . . and I can guarantee you, there is more to come with this awesome Paper Pumpkin kit!

There is one image in particular that I love. . . it's the corner image that I used in the background.  It may be hard to see - but just trust me.  I don't ever remember a stamp that does the corner and leaves an oval in the middle for this beautiful centerpiece! 

Bold Botanical, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' up!, BJ PEters, #paperpumpkin, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comI used the Moroccan designer series paper as the inspiration for the color scheme.  I just altered the green. . . the designer series paper has Emerald Envy, I substituted Mint Macaron.  With Dapper Denim and Crushed Curry, it is a great color combo that I want to use again in the near future!

So Stinkin' Cute

Foxy friends, Here for you, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #bjpeters, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #foxyfriendsPerhaps you are like me and have seen dozens of cute little critters on pinterest using the Foxy Friends bundle.  You've seen some of them posted here on my blog - but I hadn't tackled the skunk yet.   Then when I was looking for a greeting the other day and came across the "Well, this just stinks."  from the Here for you stamp set, I know it was time. 

Foxy friends, Here for you, Stampin' Up!, BJ PEters, #foxyfriends, #hereforyou, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comThe end result is a super fun card that will be really fun to give for those "special occasions".   Such as when the hose on your washer breaks and you have water all over the laundry room (ask me how I know).  My friend Sharon inspired this card. 

The tail is actually created by punching 3 tails and then putting them together in a fan type fashion.  I found that glue dots worked well for this.  The black and white paper came from the Pop of Pink specialty designer series paper.
