Halloween Treats

Hello!  I had a few minutes to stamp yesterday and I used the retired Scallop Envelope Die to make these little candy bar holders.
 The stamp set I used is the retired Spooky Bingo Bits.  I stamped with either Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray or Basic Black ink onto a 1 1/4" x 1 3/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock.
The stamped pieces are attached with pieces of Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape.
The envelopes were made with the fabulous Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper.  
Thanks a lot for stopping by!

Coffee Mug

Hello!  I made this paper coffee mug so long ago that I can't remember where I got the idea from.  Yikes, I am so sorry, I really hate it when this happens.  Of course, I gave it away this morning and didn't even measure it!!!
 I made the mug and leaves out of Sweater Weather DSP.  The leaves were cut with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.
The Thank You tag was stamped onto Vanilla card stock and was attached to the inside of the mug with a glue dot.
Stamp Set:  Hello, Lovely
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Sweater Weather DSP
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Extras:  Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Big shot, Autumn Accents Bigz Die

Fall Birthday Card

Hello, I made this card for a friend's birthday last week.
Looking at this photo I'm wondering why I didn't add more layers to the flower.  Oh, well...too late now!  The edges of the flower and scallop circle were sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  I crumpled the flower to add some dimension.

Stamp Set:  Express Yourself, Gorgeous Grunge
Paper:  Sweater Weather DSP, Garden Green, Tangerine Tango
Punches:  Modern Label, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Garden Green
Extras:  Big Shot, Floral Frames Collection

My First Christmas Card of the Year

Hello!  I've finally made a Christmas card using the Snow Day stamp set that I ordered way back in July!  It's a cute set and I'm looking forward to playing around with it some more.
I stamped the snowman on a Crumb Cake card base with some retired Whisper White Craft Ink and let it dry over night before I stamped the parts.  I added some strips of Season of Style DSP.  This card was very quick and easy to make and I like it's simplicity.
Stamp Set:  Snow Day
Ink:  Whisper White, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Season of Style DSP

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Final Day of the Spooky Banner

Hi!  Well, it's the last day...the "Y".
I know this piece needs a little something to liven it up, but I can't think of what.  Any ideas???  Here's the photo with the entire banner...
The one thing I'll say about this project is that got some good use out of all my Stampin' Up! products!  I must say this looks nice hanging in my living room and it was really fun to make.

As promised, here's a list of all of the supplies I used:

Build a Banner Simply Created Kit
Inks:  Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, Basic Gray
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Summer Starfruit, Witches' Brew DSP

                  1 3/4" Scallop Circle

Hi!  Here's the "K" piece of the Spooky banner...
This is one of my favorite pieces.  I think it's because of the little, happy candy pieces!  Tomorrow is the last day, see you then.

Spooky Banner

Hi!  Starting today I'm going to share my "Spooky" Banner that I made a couple of weeks ago.  I wanted to wait until October since it's for Halloween.  I'll show one letter per day and on the last day I'll also share the photo with the complete banner.  Here's the "S"...
 I used the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit to make the banner.  The background pattern and the "S" were spritzed, but I think on all future banners I would use a sponge with the stencils to get a more consistent and crisper look.  A complete supply list will be provided on day six.

Thanks for stopping by!
