Creative Inking Spooky Fun!

Hi there friends,

Life has sure thrown my family and I some major curve balls… It has been an emotional roller coaster and to think one month ago today my mother went to the hospital because she was feeling nauseous and had back pain. It is scary to realize that she is filled with cancer. Her hospital bed arrived yesterday, and we are so thankful that her nursing services, home health aide and other hospice services have begun. Then, with my sister-in-law’s recent hospitalization with a severe Crohn’s flair-up, I have not had much energy or time for stamping. Thank you for those who have contacted me and are keeping in touch. We appreciate your kind words, prayers and sweet gestures. So, although I haven’t created recently, I didn’t want to miss another blog hop with these wonderful ladies, and I remembered my swap card I made for a recent swap by mail which fit the theme “Spooky Fun”! I hope you enjoy my card.




I had fun watercoloring our shimmer white paper with old olive reinker on the bottom, and smoky slate on the top of the piece. Then I stamped the haunted house from “Halloween Scares”  in memento black ink when it was bone dry. I colored in the windows and doors with a Stampin’ Marker.


I also used a scrap of the Shimmer white for my vampire and “headstone” with the greeting from the stamp set “Suite Seasons”. I love how the elegant eggplant is so deep and rich, and goes well with the pumpkin pie, old olive and delightful dijon markers to color in each word on the stamp. The new cookie cutter punch made this a breeze to pop out.


You can see that I added a witch and some ghosts, this time I used the stamp set “Spooky Fun” to pull in the other elements.


You can’t forget to decorate the inside- I made a mummy (From “Cookie Cutter Halloween”) and added bats and the saying from “Spooky Fun” .


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today- if you need to see the supplies I used, scroll all the way to the bottom of this post.

I’m Sorry….

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, the past 3 weeks have been difficult as my sweet mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer that has spread to her stomach. During her week long hospital stay, in addition to biopsies, she had a chemo power port put in and today started her weekly chemo treatments. My family and I are so thankful for the wonderful doctors, nurses, friends and family who have been so positive and helpful.  I needed to cancel several card classes, swaps, blog hops and team get togethers these past 3 weeks so I could spend time with my family. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I know it will be a long and challenging road, but with our faith, family and each other, we will travel this path together. I have had no real desire (up until today) to even go in my craft room. But after talking to my mom about how chemo went today, she was full of funny stories and no side effects (yet). So tonight I made some cards, planned my club for this weekend, and decided to write a blog post.

I went online to the Stampin’ Up! website today to catch up on some updates and wanted to pass on some news to you:


For the first time ever, first-time subscribers can buy one month at the regular price of $19.95 and get the second month FREE! It’s a Paper Pumpkin BOGO deal that you don’t want to miss!   Sign up at here and use BOGO for the promo code. Offer runs until October 10, 2016.

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription service by Stampin’ Up! that delivers all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a papercrafting project. Everything is cut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun!

If you subscribe with the promo code between now and September 10, you will pay full price for the September kit and get the October kit free.

If you subscribe between September 11 and October 10, your first kit will be the October kit and you will get the November kit free.

The fine print:

  • After the first two months, the subscription will continue for $19.95 + tax per month (shipping included) unless cancelled or suspended. Ends October 10, 2016.
  • This offer is open to first-time subscribers only (This is tracked by the email account you sign up with, if you have a different email from one you used previously, then this deal could work for you.)
  • Not valid on prepaid subscriptions.
  • Ends October 10, 2016 (the last day to subscribe and get the October kit).
  • Offer invalid if subscription is suspended or cancelled during the first two months. In other words, subscribers cannot cancel or suspend their subscription during their first two months—if they do, the offer is void. You can’t put your subscription on hold or cancel until after the first two full months.
  • After you enter your shipping address and credit card info, be sure to type in my name Lynn Streifert as your demonstrator, so I will get credit for your order.


The stamp sets that come in each month’s kit are so versatile and come in handy for lots of other card making and paper crafts!!


Stampin’ Up! also has some overstock items, here are the sale items good through September 14th. I’m sorry I didn’t post about the deals last week (there were some metallic embellishments). These are some great deals:


I will be placing an order this weekend, so if you need any of these specials, let me know, or of course you can always Shop my online store at: Please Use hostess code: N32RY9MD
