Stampin up wicked cool halloween rubber stamp

Today kicks off with Holiday Mini newbies that will impress for Halloween (and so much more).  I'll share oodles of photos,new product "alerts" and the project recipes with the new products highlighted in BOLD.  Simple, yes?


used this week's Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge (SC292) to get the juices
flowing . . . check out the "negative space" on the right.  I thought it was especially splashy. 

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  I cut the card to 3 3/4" wide so that even with the wide pieces, it will fit in one of our Medium Envelopes.

Stampin up spider web textured impresions embossing folder

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  The Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder transforms card stock into a delicious web.

Stampin up holiday mini catalog glimmer brads

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  Get instant "glam" with the help of these chubby Glimmer Brads from the Basics Collection.  Think flower centers (yes, there are many more colors coming), buttons for a snowman, wheels on a little bus . . . endless possibilities.

Stampin up wicket cool halloween rhinestone stickon

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  This little witch wants to make a "blingy" statement with her boots.  Man, I adore Stampin' Up!'s stick-on Jewels Basic Rhinestones . . . simple and quick.  One boot is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals to add a little kick.

Stampin up raven lace trim ribbon holiday mini catalog

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  The saucy Raven 1/2" Lace Trim will make it's debut on September 1, too.  It would be smashing on a vintage card or how about black lace for a Valentine?  Note that the Mini Lunch Sack comes with the scalloped edge already done for you!

Stampin pretty wicked fun specialty designer series paper bats

What makes the Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series Paper "specialty?"  The fuzzy, raised bats for one!  And on another pattern in the coordinated group, there are bold and fuzzy polka dots.  Tr?s cool!  It's available now in the Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog.

Stampin up decorative label extra large punch

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!   I'm a punch maven and proud of it, Babe!  Any time I see a new Stampin' Up! punch, it heads straight to my wish list.  The new Decorative Label Extra-Large Punch will be one of the "darlings" of the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I embossed and used it in Rich Razzleberry on my treat bag.  See it?  It measures approximately 2 1/8" x 1 7/16". Wouldn't it be divine if it coordinated with holiday stamps?  Stay tuned . . . .
