One More Howl-o-ween Treat Bag

Image
Hi! Just a quick post today...this is the last Halloween Treat Bag I will be sharing for awhile.
This one might be my favorite! All of the supplies are pretty much the same as last Thursday's post (9/24) except for the DSP.

Thanks for stopping by!

Another Howl-o-ween Treat Bag

Image
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.

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:

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

DSC#149 Zoo Babies Card

Image
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:

Vintage Leaves Gift Bag

Image
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

DSC#148 Happy Scenes

Image
Hello!  It's a sketch challenge today.  This card didn't turn out exactly like I was hoping it would, but I'll keep it!  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:SharonRobynMichelleMiriamJudyAshleyDawn

Fall Berry Basket

Hello!  Just a quick photo post today!
I made another Berry Basket using the Vintage Leaves stamp set along with the Leaflet Framelits and the 2014-2016 In Colors card stock.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!  I'm making some Christmas cards...better get back to it!

Hello!  Here was today's challenge.

At first it took me a little while to decide what I was going to do with these three colors, but once I got going I was very happy with my card. I just cannot get enough of these Vintage Leaves!! Love them!
 Aren't they pretty?  I almost didn't buy this stamp set and coordinating framelits...what was I thinking?!  I used my bone folder to curl up the edges and mounted some of them with Dimensionals. Two strands of Linen Thread were used to make the bow.

Take come time to visit my fellow STARS to see what they made:

This Square Pillow Box will look so cute filled with Halloween candy (I haven't bought any yet because I always eat it all before Halloween gets here and then I have to go and buy more for Trick or Treat!). Look how nice and crisp the new Archival Stamping' Pad stamps.
