Stampin' Up! Easy Halloween Home Decor

Stampin up My Digital Studio Halloween
Toxic Framable Designer Template

Looking for an easy way to add a bit of Halloween decor to your table top or entry? 

Take a look at this framed print created in Stampin' Up! MDS...the Toxic Framable Designer Template.

No kidding...I had this printed and framed within 30 minutes! 
This download includes a framable décor designer template (8-1/2" x 11") and a 34-piece stamp brush set that you can use on Halloween treats and other décor.


  • digital-exclusive
  • framable Halloween décor that you can customize to suit your style
  • easy to create coordinating projects with all included elements

Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Basic Gray, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla.  You can easily coordinate any of the images with your paper crafting supplies to create a hybrid project!

This version pictured above was printed on Very Vanilla card stock on my home computer.  A bit of trimming was needed to fit in the frame but it was done in jiffy!

Add a touch of Halloween spooky to your home with Stampin' Up! MDS and the Toxic Framable Designer Template.

Santa's List Christmas Ornament

Today I'm sharing a video tutorial for a Christmas ornament using the Stampin' Up! Santa's List (wood, clear) from the Holiday Catalog.

The Santa image is adorable and to go along with the vintage feel, it's stamped on Crumb Cake and colored with markers and a Blender Pen.

Watch the video for the how-to and use your imagination to make it your own!

I love the use of that Artisan Label Punch in the background, don't you?

Look how she used the Six Sided Sampler stamp (wood, clear) for her punched bitty butterfly!

On this card, she used the negative space of the Hexagon Punch to to cut out border pieces...see below...


Here's a beautiful use of the Pansy Punch using the Creped Filter Paper that's been spritzed with Calypso Coral ink.

So very pretty!  Secure with a brad in the center then ruffle up to form the flower!

Stampin' Up! Video Tutorial-Starburst Technique


Using a Stampin' Spritzer, rubbing alcohol, and your choice in color of Classic Stampin' Ink Refills, you can create the beautiful Starburst technique that is super hot in the  crafting industry right now!

Here are a few tips:

  • Combine a few drops of re-inker and rubbing alcohol in your Stampin' Spritzer. For more darker color, add more drops of re-inker.
  • Clear your work space so you don't "color" your other pretties!
  • You might want to adhere your "mask" with a few pieces of washi tape.

    For these tips to make complete sense ;) the video below and let me know if you have questions!
