New Halloween Stuff!

New stuff for Halloween! Made some goodie bags for Emma's class party on Friday and a little Halloween card. Kept the bags super simple and fast, since I had to make 28 of them. Love how they turned out though!

Plan on making a few more Halloween treats....hopefully...

A Little Recycling

A couple of the shirts I bought for my daughter for school came with these really cute tags on them. It says "So", the letters are raised and I thought it would be really cute on a card so I saved the tags. I used one on this card that I will be sending in her lunch next week.

The stamps are from The Angel Company, paterned paper is from DCWV, ribbon from Michaels. I colored the chick with my Prismacolor Pencils and used Palette Burnt Umber ink to stamp "sweet" and to ink the edges around the chick.

First Halloween Card of the Season

It's definitely time to start with the Fall projects. Yesterday I pulled out some of my Halloween stamps and made this card. Hopefully the first of many!

The stamp is from The Angel Company, ribbon from Michael's, the brad in the corner is from Around the Block. I cut a circle out of a piece of printer paper with my Coluzzle circle template. Laid it over the cardstock and sponged on Pumpkin Spice VersaMagic ink with a make-up sponge. Then I just stamped over that with my black ink. Such a cool effect! I will definitely be playing with that some more and with different shapes.

I just made this card yesterday to send to a friend. So glad to finally do some stamping now that the kids are back in school!

The stamps and ribbon are from The Angel Company, paterned paper is from K & Company. Instead of coloring the body of the bird in, I did paper piecing, then just colored the flowers and grass with my Prismacolor Pencils. Super simple to make!

Halloween Tags

I'm definitely in the Halloween mood right now. These are a couple of tags that I made using the Mega Scalloped Oval Punch. To make them you just punch the oval from a folded piece of cardstock. Just align your punch so that it goes slightly over the folded edge of the cardstock to keep the layers connected otherwise you will just end up with two ovals. Once you have them punched, decorate the fronts however you like. The one on the right I even ran through the Cuttlebug using the Spider Web embossing folder. I used the Extra Jumbo Circle Punch to punch out the spiders. Unfortunately the stamps are from a retired set. It was only available as a Stamp of the Month last year and has not been available since. It's a shame too because it is such a cute set.

I am really loving these tags like this. This is going to be a really fun and easy way to make tags/gift cards for all of the holidays.
