Another Howl-o-ween Treat Bag

Hi.  While I was making one treat bag this past week I thought I might as well make more.
This DSP is retired, I had so much left over that I decided not to buy any new Halloween paper this year.  I'm trying my best to use it up! (Although, I just got a new puppy so every spare minute has been spent with her, not much stamping getting done!)
Here she is. We named her Lucy. She is a sweet little girl, full of energy and adjusting well to her new home!

Thanks for stopping by. If you would like to see a supply list please go to my previous post (September 24th) and you will find it there.

DSC#150 Howl-o-ween Treat Bag


Hello!  It's a color challenge today.  When I saw these colors I immediately thought of Halloween.  I decided to use my Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, the new Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set and the Boo to You Framelits Dies.
I think it turned out really cute (although, once again I forgot to do something to the eyes. I planned on cutting out black circles and gluing them on. Maybe next time!)  I love the Spider Web Doilies.  Three snack sized candy bars fit in the treat bag.

I can't wait to see what my fellow STARS have done this week:

Supplies
Stamp Set: Howl-o-ween Treat
Paper:  Tangelo Twist, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink: Tangelo Twist, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry
Big Shot:  Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Boo to You Framelits
Extras:  Spider Web Doilies, Dimensionals

Hello!  I thought I would share one of the Christmas cards I made a couple of weeks ago.  This was really fun to make.
The snowman and tree were both made with coordinating stamp sets and framelits (see info below).  I ran the right side of the card through the Big Shot in the Woodland Textured Impressions  Embossing Folder, then I used a sponge dauber dabbed on my Whisper White Craft stamp pad to color the tree trunks, finally I took a black marker and colored inside the groves. Love it!

Supplies
Stamp Sets:  Peaceful Pines, Snow Place
Coordinating Framelits:  Perfect Pines, Snow Friends
Paper:  Sky Blue, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight
Ink:  Garden Green, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black, Whisper White

Thanks for much for stopping by!

DSC#149 Zoo Babies Card


Hi! Check out this cute picture for today's challenge!  I love it this bedding.  The No Bones About It stamp set would have been perfect to use this week. Unfortunately it's on my wish list and not in my cupboard!  I decided to go with Zoo Babies instead.
 I really like these colors and I wanted to keep the card simple this week so this is what I made.  It works for me!  I even have a little special someone to give the card too, which makes it even better!

I can't wait to see what my fellow STARS have made, check them out:
Stamp Sets:  Zoo Babies, Endless Birthday Wishes
Paper:  Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Ink:  Hello Honey, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi

Vintage Leaves Gift Bag

Hi!  I had some time yesterday to make this little gift bag. It's perfect for holding candy.
I used some retired DSP and the Gift Bag Punch board to make this.  The leaves are made out of Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip card stock.  I used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the leaf images on the Crushed Curry leaves and then used my Bone Folder to curl the edges.
Here's another view.  I cut my paper 10" x 5" and folded down the top 1".  The leaves were glued together and mounted with Dimensionals.

Supplies
Stamp Set:  Vintage Leaves
Paper:  Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Retired DSP
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Big Shot:  Leaflets Framelits
Extras:  Retired Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Linen Thread, Dimensionals, Gift Bag Punch Board, Bone
             Folder

I used my markers to color the Happy Scenes image and added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with my 2-Way Glue Pen for some snow.  The bow was made using two strands of the Gold Cording Trim.  The window frame is mounted with Dimensionals.

Take some time to hop on over to my fellow STARS blogs to see what they made this week:

Stamp Set:  Happy Scenes
Paper:  Mossy Meadow, Real Red, Whisper White, Home for Christmas DSP
