Get a Monday morning creative edge by starting with a fresh, new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO311).  For this week’s design, I created a snappy Halloween card using the Stampin’ Up! Halloween Happiness single stamp.  It was the perfect shape to mirror the rectangle in the sketch!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Got markers?  The Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Write Markers turn this single stamp into a tri-color treat!

  • Use the paint brush (larger) end of the markers to color (where you want and what colors you want) directly to the rubber of the stamp.  Huff on it a few times to moisten and then stamp!  I chose Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • Cutie patootie!  A single button with a cross stitch of Whisper White Baker’s Twine adds polish and dimension to the pumpkin images.  Can embellishing get any simpler?

  • I used the new Stampin’ Up! Envelope Border Punch to whip up the Pumpkin Pie envelope.  Did you happen to notice the coordinating envelope liner?  I made that with the Envelope Border Punch as well (after much experimentation) and will have a 1 Minute to WOW! tutorial for you tomorrow to share the full scoop!

  1. Hello. My name is Janet and one of my favorite ways to be pampered is stamping! I love receiving SU products and trying out new ideas, it’s so much fun and relaxing. My other favorite idea of pampering is just spending quality time doing the things that I like to do. I’m always doing for my family and friends, which I don’t mind, but every once in awhile I like to have quiet time to curl up and read a book or relax with a full body massage, manicure and pedicure!!

  2. Being alone in my craft room. Making cards, scrapbook pages, or just surfing the web.With all the day to day hassle (work, my daughter and her activities, daily household chores, the dog …lol)I dont seem to be in my craft room doing what I really enjoy. So I would like to call on the “craft spirits” and allow me a weekend to just be…..

    Thank you for sharing, blessings for a safe trip to ST. George. Have a wonderful time.

  3. My favorite way to be pampered would be to sit in the sun room at camp with a cup of hot Apple tea opening up a box of goodies from Mary Fish.
    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas and tips. Love your site.

    Hi Mary

    My name is Monique and I follow your blog regularly.
    I love all your stampin ideas. My favourite way to
    be pampered is to have some time to myself so that I
    can go into my little craft room and “play”. I love
    to make cards and make up scrapbook pages. I’d rather
    have time for myself than to be massaged- although a massage is nice I’d rather “play”

  5. Mary,
    Loving that Christmas Star. What set has the Season’s Greeting stamp that was used?

  6. That image is just too adorable (wishing I had ordered it with my last order!). Love the button detail!

  7. Those pumpkins brought a smile to my face today. Thanks for sharing your talent!
