Bone Appétit for APPT Blog Hop 09-2019

APPT headerIt’s time for the APPT Blog Hop for September! This month’s kit is called Bone Appétit, and it makes adorable treat boxes. I used the kit to decorate one of the boxes a little differently from the directions in the Bone Appétit kit, and to make a card that mimics the dots on the box. I love the intricate die cut “webs” of bones. And the die cut skeletons are so cute! The one on my card is holding a sign with the greeting, “Happy Halloween,” which is just one of several great sentiments in the Bone Appétit stamp set. I’ll be using this stamp set a lot, since our Halloween party theme this year is Bones!

I’m sorry there have been several days in the past couple weeks when I didn’t get a blog post done. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that during this time of year our house is consumed with Halloween party prep. There’s little room in the whole place to walk because of all the boxes and totes packed full of skeletons, skulls, bones, etc., as well as other Halloween goodies. There’s a lot to do and not a lot of time left to do it. So please forgive me if I’m not as present online as usual in the next few weeks.

The Raven It’s Halloween Card

Today I’m sharing one of the Make & Take projects from my September Stamp Club. It’s a card made with the The Raven stamp set, Ornate Frames Dies, Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, and Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I love the raven image in this stamp set, as well as the creepy branch. It really does bring to mind Edgar Allen Poe’s poem The Raven.

One of the members of the club made her raven card a little differently. I have included photos below of Brenda’s card, which she made as a vertical card, instead of horizontal like mine.

Come to Gather Gift Bag for Autumn IRBH

inKing Royalty Blog Hop, September 2019, Autumn

It’s time for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme in Autumn. And what could be more Autumnal than beautifully colored leaves? For my project, I used products from the Come to Gather Suite to decorate a gift bag from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You can see another project I made using these bags here.) From the suite, I used the Gather Together bundle (Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies) and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I was going to use the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack as well, but I got so carried away with the leaves, I didn’t think it needed it. I used each embossed leaf die (3 in the set) to cut two each of four colors – and I used 18 of the 24 leaves I cut! Guess I just couldn’t stop until I had a big leaf pile! Doesn’t it make you want to jump in and scatter them?

Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects from this talented group!

Here’s what I made:

Stamped with the Gather Together stamp set:

  • sentiment in Versamark ink on the leaf, then heat embossed in copper

Cut using the Gathered Leaves Dies:

  • stamped leaf
  • assortment of embossed leaves from scraps of Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, and Pretty Peacock CS and Copper Foil Sheet

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • one end of each of the 3 paper strips

Assembled the project:

  • adhered the 3 tags together using Snail
  • adhered the assorted leaves onto the tags and each other using Snail
  • large stamped leaf adhered onto the leaf “pile” using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • tag assembly glued onto the front of the bag

Today is my first time participating in the Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop. I used the Boo to You stamp set, Word Wishes Dies, and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper to create this greeting for my foyer table.  I just love the Boo to You stamp set’s three adorable little monsters. Now I realize that “adorable monsters” might seem like an oxymoron, but these guys really are cute.
