I am so excited to be in the Holiday Catalog edition of the Hawaii Ink Blog Hop!! As many of you already know, Hawaii Ink is my upline group and they are so amazing! Our team leader, the extraordinary Lisa Curcio, is a Founder’s Circle member this year. Our group spans the world and many of us are, or have been, associated with the military. We are highlighting the fun new things in the Holiday Catalog and what fun things there are! If you have have already been on the hop, you have come over from Gina Mustain. Didn’t you love her work?!
I thought it would be fun to show you some of the great Halloween products in the catalog. I started with the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit to create this fun rosette. But Jennifer, you ask…it seems smaller than it looks in the catalog. Why yes it is! I took the existing rosette and simply cut it in half length wise to create a smaller one (well, actually TWO, but one for the card). It makes it just the right size for this 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card. The Pumpkin Pie circle and the ribbons are in the Accessory Kit too! I paired this with the awesome designs from Witches’ Brew DSP. They are a great match! The smallest circle is cut from the DSP print and then I stamped on the skull and crossbones from Toil & Trouble using Versamark. I added some Heat and Stick Powder and finished with this awesome Black Stampin’ Glitter.
These banner kits are so versatile and I love that they can be used for all sorts of projects! Now I know you are ready to see more ideas so on with the hop. Jo Anne Waterhouse has a fantastic project for you!
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I look forward to seeing you again Wednesday with my latest Artisan Wednesday Wow and a new Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

It is so exciting having an artisan on our team. You have so many ideas on how to use products. Like this kit for example! Who would have thought it would make such a cute card.
As always, Jen…BRILLIANT use of Stampin’ Up! products. I love the project! TFS
LOVE IT!! Love Halloween, the orange and black. Great idea on using some of the Halloween banner kit to make a very cute card!
I love it! Very clean lines and nice color combo. I don’t usually make Halloween cards, but I want to make this one!
Fantastic Halloween card! I love how you embossed the skull and crossbones. Thanks for sharing with us interested hoppers!
