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. 


My Prince & Acorny Thank You

BJ Peters, #stampinbj.comI had a little creative assistance this weekend - if you could call it that.  My puppy - Prince, decided since it was just the two of us home for the weekend, that he would demand a little (or a lot) of my attention!   He had to sit or lay on a chair right next to mine as I spent the weekend creating projects to share with you all.   He didn't want to sit very still taking a selfie though. . . we'll have to work on that.

Acorny thank you, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #acornythankyou, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comMy goal was to make some fall themed cards for my upcoming classes.  I used the Moroccan designer series paper to give me the color scheme and then just played off those colors.  This designer series paper collection worked pretty well for that.

Acorny Thank You, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #acornythankyou, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpetersThe acorns are punched with the acorn builder punch.  Notice the top of the acorn is also the Moroccan designer series paper?  I added a bit of the Burlap Ribbon - just a few strands cut apart.    Certainly a quick and easy fall card since my creative partner wasn't much help in the creativity department. 



Sneak Peak Cookie Cutter Halloween

Cookie Cutter Halloween, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Stampin' Up!, BJ PEters, #cookiecutterhalloween, #cookiecutterbuilderpunch, #stampinbj.com, #bjpetersI can't wait to introduce you to the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set!   But, it has a partner. . . the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle!   The Christmas bundle is paired with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.   It's like a two-for!  Truly, you are going to love these combinations!  

You'll find both of these stamp sets and other totally awesome things in the Holiday catalog that should be arriving at your door if you have been a customer of mine in the last year.  If you haven't been but want to be, contact me and let's get you a copy of the Holiday catalog! 

Cookie Cutter Halloween, Cookie cutter builder punch, Stampin' Up!, #cookiecutterhalloween, #halloweencards, #fallcards, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comI used an aqua painter and watercolored this scarecrow.  Colors I used are;  Dapper Denim, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon and Crumb Cake.  I love the greeting . . . . "Hang In There"  it comes from a stamp set called Here for you. . . there are some other fun greetings in that set too!

Blog Hop, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersOh my!  If you have your Stampin' Up! Holiday 2016 catalog, you know what I'm talking about!   I used inspiration from that catalog to inspire you in this Peeking into the Holidays blog hop!

Santa's Sleigh, Frame, Stampin' Up!, Sneak Peak Holiday 2016, #santa'ssleigh, #sneakpeak, #holidayframe, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comWhen I first looked at the amazing Holiday catalog, my eye caught the frame made with the Santa's Sleigh bundle.  I LOVED it and knew it would be an amazing creative piece on my mantle during the holidays!  Imagine this beauty on display in your home. . . it is sure to get the oohhs and ahhhs from your family and friends!  (The holiday catalog is full of inspiration for your copying!)
