Creative Inking Blog Hop -- Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!
Creative Inking Blog Hop -- Holiday Catalog Must Haves

OSAT Blog Hop -- Throwback Thursday in September!


Hello, hello, hello stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my stop on the One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop!  This months theme is a fun one that everyone can relate to...Throwback Thursday.  Usually this involves rehashing memories and old pictures of yourself, a group of people or a past vacation/event.  Just so you know, I won't be showing off old pictures of myself with big hair and bell bottom pants.  haha!

This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from my dear friend Tina Rackley Riddle's blog. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the "NEXT" button at the bottom of each blogger's post.



I haven't been able to put away the Spooky Cat stamp set and coordinating Cat punch because I have been having way too much with this bundle!  That cat is sooo stinkin' cute!  I am definitely getting my monies worth from this bundle (save 10% when you buy the bundle).  So, the inspiration for my Throwback Thursday creation stems from this card I shared almost a year ago.



When I created that card, I used a modeling paste purchased from a hobby store.  Since then, Stampin' Up! has introduced their own line of Embossing Paste.  **squeal**  The fun factor is that we can add any color to the white base paste using any reinker color that you wish.  I selected Basic Gray and applied a 'light' brick wall using one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. I purposely chose not to fill in all the spaces...I wanted an ominous, spooky affect.  Looks pretty cool, right?


To follow suit with the color scheme from the older card, I used Lemon Lime Twist, Perfect Plum and Pumpkin Pie to create the fun 'frames' to set off the Gold embossed cat.  The frames were made with the help of the Stitched Squares and Circles Framelits and Layer Squares Framelits and my trusty Big Shot.  The bling comes from the Gold Metallic Thread looped and resting behind the punched cat.


Coordinating Spooky Cat Mini Treat Bag

I really dug deep into my archived creations for this one...two years ago.  :)  This little Mini Treat Bag is one of my favorite things to make because you can use any designer series paper or cardstock of your choice to create mini treat bags for any holiday or special occasion.  I am soooo in love with the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper available in the new Holiday catalog.  It has kind of a retro feel to it.  Check out page 51 for the whole suite of coordinating products.  Super cute samples and FUN ideas!



Check out the Stampin' Up! video tutorial that I used as my inspiration to create my Mini Treat Bag:
