Acorny Stamp Set and Acorn Builder Punch
2015 Holiday Catalog
Page 45

Hi Crafters! Here we are on Day 7 of the 2015 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek. Only four more days until you can order!  You may think the title of my post today has a spelling error in it.  Nope!  The “Acorny” in “Acorny Bunch of Fun!” is in the name of a new stamp set, “Acorny Thank You”.  Guess what?  It’s part of a bundle that includes an Acorn Builder Punch too!  Sah-weet!

The Wild West Crafters group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators will feature this set in our Holiday Stamp Camp set for September 26, 2015 in Reno, Nevada.  Here’s the card you’ll make with this cute stamp set and builder punch at the stamp camp.  Isn’t it a beauty?!

This Acorny fall card designed and created by one of the Wild West Crafters group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, Karen Gooch of InkersWorkshop.com.  Visit Karen’s blog for more unique creations.

As a builder punch, the acorn punch has two sections, the complete image and the acorn cap.  I can see a few different uses for each piece by itself.  You’ll have to check back next week for a few ideas.  My bundle is on it’s way.

PPA 265 Sketch Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comIt’s Thursday, PPA265 Sketch Challenge with Pals AND time for calisthenics, Wild West style!.  Ready? 1, 2…. wait! Just “flip that sketch”. At first glance the sketch reminded me of a file folder or a divider.  And then the flip took place.

Today is also Day 6 of my 2015 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek.  The Wonderland Stamp Set is the product I’ve chosen.  Perfect for an elegant card that’s simple to create. When you want elegance in a hurry, grab your Heat Tool, some gold Stampin’ Glitter and Basic Black Cardstock.  You’re good to go!

The catalog samples using this stamp set are beautiful!  You’ll find these beauties on Pages 22 and 24 of the new holiday catalog when you get yours.

The simple beauty of this masked card makes me want to cozy up to the fire with a cup of hot cocoa.  What?  In August?  LOL!

And this stunner is another example of what you can do with black and gold for the upcoming holidays.

Now, that you’ve had some inspiration it’s your turn to play with me and my pals for  Pals Paper Arts PPA265. Ready set, Flip!

Thank you so much for spending a little time with me today.  I so appreciated it.

Web Design Halloween Style

Weave a Tangled Web at WildWestPaperArts.com

Ok, the blog post title today is a little misleading but Web Design Halloween Style is a great title for showcasing the new Spider Web Doilies. These intricate, lacy accents are sturdier than they look, just like a spider web. There you have it, 2015 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Day 5.

This card could be used for a Halloween Party Invitation or even a birthday card.  How about an “over the hill” birthday card?

Here are two more versions for you.  All three versions use part of the Witches’ Night Stamp Set featured few days ago and Black Glimmer Paper featured in Day 1.  The first one uses another new item, Happy Haunting Washi Tape.  Three colors come in the set, Basic Black Bats, Blackberry Bliss Herringbone Pattern and Tangelo Twise Stars (shown here)

Web Design Halloween Style at WildWestPaperArts.com

The last version has a scrap of black lacy trim leftover from last year.

I can’t chose a favorite, can you?

Are you ready for that new catalog yet?  Just six more days before it goes live. Tomorrow you’ll see a Christmas Card using the Wonderland Stamp Set for Sneak Peek Day 6.

Now, about that catalog.

Fright Night + Tiny Triangles

Fright Night + Tiny Triangles at WildWestPaperArts.com

What do you get when you combine Tiny Triangles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) and a Fright Night stamp? Answer:  August 24th Wild West Pick and Sneak Peak Day 4.

This frightful stamp is part of the new Witches’ Night Photopolymer Stamp Set (#139708) for Halloween.  You’ll find it on page 7 of the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  It’s available to order on September 1, 2015.  Look very close at the background of the stamp (the orange part) and you’ll see why the Tiny Triangles TEIF (133740) pairs perfectly with it.

I’m betting you’ll see this stamp set around quite a bit this fall.  It’s also used in the super spooky Witching Decor Project Kit (#140969) featured in the 2015 Holiday Catalog.

Witching Decor Project Kit #140969 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Witching Decor Project Kit #140969

I can see so many possibilities with this one. It comes with two large stamps, a group of little bats, an accent piece and a spider web as shown on the inside of the card below.

Here’s a review the current weekly deals.

Fine Tip Find!

Fine Tip Glue Product Review at WildWestPaperArts.comToday is Sneak Peek Day 2 of the 2015 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up!  You may be scratching your head to figure out the new item.  Here’s today’s hint.  It has a super fine tip and can be used in more than one way.  It’s a real fine tip find!

Here’s a closer look to help you out.

Fine Tip Glue Product Review at WildWestPaperArts.com

Still scratching?  It’s the Fine Tip Glue Pen and I’m in LOVE!  No more sticky mess when adhering tiny embellishments like sequins and more.  Plus, you can use it like a glaze.  The tip is so small you can actually draw with it like I did on the veins of this Vintage Leaves autumn tag. Now That’s Wild!

Fine Tip Glue Product Review at WildWestPaperArts.com
Just like Crystal Effects, it takes a little time to dry. But, it’s SO WORTH IT!  This just may be my favorite new product in the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  Can you guess how many ways the Fine Tip Glue Pen is used on this tag? The answer… three.  See if you can spot them.

If you’ll be in Reno, NV on September 26th, you’ll get a “hands-on” with the Fine Tip Glue Pen and more at the Wild West Holiday Stamp Camp.   Here’s what you can expect at the event.

Projects:

  • 3D Halloween Treat Holder
  • Autumn Card
  • 2 Christmas Cards (one with a special fold)
  • A Gift for giving

On Your Own:

  • Paper Play Station where you can try new tools to create additional projects
  • Games & Prizes
  • Lunch
  • Holiday Décor ideas
  • Samples
  • FUN!

Join us at the Wild West Holiday Stamp Camp to get a head start on your holiday preparation this year.

Thank you for stopping by for Day 2 of the Wild West Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek. Do you have your 2015 Holiday Catalog yet?  No? Send me an email (rae@wildwestpaperarts.com) to find out how you can get your own.

Bravo!  It’s time for PPA264 Sketch Challenge with Pals and time for a Wild West spin on the sketch.

The Cover StoryThe obvious spin is the orientation.  Flipped the sketch to make it work for me.  What may not be so obvious is the wording used from the Bravo! photopolymer stamp set.  Not only did I separate the phrases lines but I also swapped them.  Another Wild West creation by osmosis!  It worked!  It completely makes sense to have the ellipsis at the end of the last phrase for this card, leading the reader to the inside.  Genius?  I think accident is more like it.

Bravo Photopolymer Stamp Set  #135380 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Bravo Photopolymer Stamp Set #135380

The Bravo Stamp Set wasn’t even on my wish list when it came out. It was a gift from Stampin’ Up! Who am I to turn down a gift? SO glad it’s in my stamp arsenal now.

New Product Sneak Peek:  Notice anything new on this card? Hint… it sparkles.

PPA264 Sketch Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.com

If you guessed Black Glimmer Paper you’d be absolutely correct!  You’ll find it in the Stampin’ Up! 2015 Holiday Catalog on Page 47, when you receive it, that is.  Need one?  If you’re my customer, you’ll receive one before September 1, 2015.  If not, send me an email and we’ll have a chat –  rae@wildwestpaperarts.com.  I’d love to earn your business.

Back to the current project…

The Inside Story: Can’t forget the inside!  Especially when there are ellipsis to contend with.

The Envelope Please:  Pull it all together with a matching envelope compliments of the Big Shot and our Envelope Liner Framelits (#132172).
