I decided to try my hand at these super fun Candy Apples made with the new Harvest Hello's stamp set and matching Apple Builder punch from Stampin' Up!
OMG LOVE LOVE how they came out!!!! Super easy to make as well! I used toothpicks for the sticks! I drew inspiration from The Craft Sergeant, she put together a video showing how to make the caramel/candy part of the apples.
Stamp the image onto the color cardstock you want to use (stamp the image in the same color ink) add some sponges around edges to make the shadow. Stamp the image again onto the color paper you want for the caramel, and fussy cut out the drips, add shaded etc and attach to the top of the apple. That simple.
The colors I used for the apples were Cherry Cobbler, Real Red and Granny Apple Green, for the caramel I used Cajun Craze and for the "poisoned" apple I used Basic Black. They are just so fun!!!!
You can find the Harvest Hello bundle here
I hope you enjoyed
Happy Stampin Steph

Welcome to this month's Stampin Friends Blog Hop!! This months theme is Thankfulness! Be sure to hop along!! We have amazing projects prepared for you to help you during this season of Thanks! You can find the list of participants at the end of my blog post!
I have prepared 2 projects for you today, 1 a home decor piece using a glass block and 2 a card using Stampin Up products!
I have had this glass block on hand since last Christmas, and I've really wanted to decorate it! There are so many ideas on Pinterest! So I started there. And well this sort of just evolved.
I am definitely out of my comfort zone so I had a tendency to overthink this whole thing! A few times I was like "I'm done. I'm not making it".....
I am glad I stuck to it! I found the Families are Forever greeting from an old Cricut cartridge called Just Because Cards. I cut the greeting on Silver Vinyl and sponged over it with Cajun Craze ink. I used a heat tool to help set the ink! A more permanent ink like StayzOn probably would have dried better. But I really like the affect. It has a little bit of an aged look. On the inside, I added white rice lights, wrapped in a olive green mesh ribbon. I should have used a longer strand of lights to give a more glowing look. But this still gives a nice glow when the lights are down. For the top, I used small fall picks and ribbon. I added the ribbon first and then built around it. The middle decor piece is a small gourd. I'm sure a pumpkin would look nice too!
I hope you like my projects! Please leave a comment and tell me what you think! Be sure to continue with the hop to see all the wonderful projects. Below is a list of our participants!

Happy Stampin, Happy Fall
Welcome to this month's Halloween Stampin Friends Blog Hop!! We have some really spook Halloween projects, be sure to hop along!! You can find the list of participants at the end of my blog post!
This is my favorite time of year here in Massachusetts! I love everything fall. The crisp air, the smells, leaves changing colors and getting ready for Halloween!
I have prepared 2 projects for you today using Stampin Up products! I had a few wood slices leftover from an ornament project I was working on! I created one for Halloween.
First I sponged the wood with Pumpkin Pie until I was happy with the color. Live and learn as I go. I probably would suggest Modge Podge that way the wood is protected as well! Then I sponged with the Craft White ink and Smoky Slate ink. Once that dried, I then stamped "Wicked', the spider and spider webs with Stayz-on in Jet Black! My original plan was to use the Die that coordinates with the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp set that is new in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. But...apparently I forgot to order it! Oops.
I added some rhinestones and a bow to finish it off! What do you think??
I made my card to coordinate with the Wicked Ornament so it can be given together as a gift!
I used the new Monster Bash Designer Series Paper and coordinated colors; Black and Pumpkin Pie! This new paper is so fun to use! And each sheet is double sided so you really have a lot of options! I used both sides for my card!! This card was so simple and comes together quickly. Perfect for making multiples if you like to give Halloween cards to family and friends!
I hope you enjoyed my projects and that you are following along in the hop. Be sure to check out Melissa Thomas's projects next!

Up, Up and Away
Do you ever look up at the clouds and think to yourself, “Wouldn’t those be beautiful in stamps?” We do, too! Just add in a balloon punch and some uplifting phrases, and you’ve got yourself the Above the Clouds Bundle.
This bundle is fun and encouraging, and perfect for practicing new stamping techniques. Try out two-step stamping as we did with our pizza box sample, or try your hand at no-line watercoloring, just like the Hi, Friend sample. If you would like to make the banner, break out the Stampin’ Blends and the Stampin’ Spritzer, and blend and spritz to your heart’s desire! But the best part is that the sky is the limit with this bundle, so grab yours today and start stamping the clouds with them.
Contact me to get your Up, Up and Away Bundle today

Happy World Card Making Day from Stampin & Scrappin with Steph! W.C.D. is such a fun holiday created just us, and I am excited to share my inspiration with you!
World Card Making Day was created in 2006, and the original purpose was to kick-start the holiday card making season. Like many of us paper crafters, you make lots of cards for Christmas, but we all know that those beautiful cards don’t come together in one night. So grab your scissors and adhesives and make some cards today! Your family can fend for themselves, right? You deserve to celebrate.
World Card Making Day is October 5, 2019! But why celebrate just alone! So as a big thank you to all my followers, this event is for you! I will provide you with some samples of holiday projects, the newest catalogs (if you don't have one), a little afternoon snack and some cards!
You can join me from 3-5pm. Nothing fancy, but stop by, this will just take a few minutes of your time to celebrate! You will leave with 3 cards to jump-start your holiday card making! But there's more, each attendee will be entered in raffle for a prize! No obligation to buy or join!
Be sure to RSVP so I know can be prepared for you! Click the following link to RSVP to my Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/386195055400154/
I can't wait! Can you?
Get Excited about the Holiday Catalog!
It’s almost that time of year for our holiday catalog, and I am so excited to share it with you! Just one of the perks of being a Stampin Up Demonstrator is we get to see the catalogs early! On July 23, Stampin Up will launch the holiday catalog PDF for Demos to view ONLY!! We will be able to make our wish lists ahead of time. We will not only will you get to see the entire holiday catalog, but we get to enjoy videos about cross-selling and product training, as well as a special video by Sara and Shelli! How awesome is this??? Great right? But that's not all!
On August 1, Stampin Up will allow Demonstrators to be the first to preorder. Why?? So we can shop and try out the new products to create classes workshops and much more for you to see before the catalog goes Live!!!
I can’t wait to help you make your holiday season the most wonderful time of the year!

Today I am certainly taking advantage of the anything goes theme with a little Christmas in July!! It's never to early to start planning cards and gift packing! I have prepared for you a Christmas card and a little treat bag. I found these adorable bags at Walmart on clearance! They a good size!!! The rest of products used are all current through Stampin UP.
I used the Dashing Deer Stamp set from Stampin Up on both the giftbag and card.
I stamped the deer in Shaded Spruce, the greeting in Real Red and I colored the little holly strip with Real Red and Shaded Spruce markers and cut this out using the Layering Circles dies.
I wrapped the bag in the Poppy Parade Textured Weave Ribbon and finished it with a bow!
For the card I added the matching Detailed Deer dies and cut out a deer. The card base is Shaded Spruce layered with Whisper White. I used the Layering Squares dies to cut out the 2 squares. I also stamped a deer in Real Red and cut it out with the matching die. I used the Woodland Embossing Folder and embossed on a piece of vellum and then sponged over the images with Sahara Sand ink. I also added a little Wink of Stella over the trees to make them glitter, unfortunately you can't see it in the pictures!.
I hope you enjoyed the projects I have prepared for you! I'd love to hear what you think, so please be sure to leave a comment below!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Christmas in July!
