jinah-tin-smJinah created this wonderful candy tin – yum! The outside is so cute – with the little trick-or-treaters. jinah-tin-openjinah-tin-inside-detail
But the inside is even yummier with little Peter Pumpkin adorning each individual piece of candy. This is one time where you’ll certainly want to save the wrappers!

For this card I used my Martha Stewart fence and hydrangea flower punches again. I just can’t get enough of them. :)

I stamped the background and then added some shading around the edges. Glued all my background pieces on and then used a thick glue dot to glue the witch and her coffee cup.

Happy Halloween Eve to everyone!

meg-hank-hoover-sm
Meg sent another card – yeah! This one she actually created for a sketch challenge. I love how Hank the dog is in the moon’s spotlight…what I can’t believe is she actually cut out the cord on the vacuum cleaner!

Here’s the instructions Meg sent:

  1. For Mr Hank, I stamped and heat embossed on Stampin’ Up. Soft Suede, PaperTreyInk Smokey Shadow, and some Fancy Pants “All Fall” patterned paper, added some details (like coloring in the hat, eye, and bottom of the vacuum) with prismacolor pencils, cut out, and paper pieced.
  2. For the moon, I brayered Memento Tuxedo Black over orange All Fall paper with a post-it circle on it, then removed the post-it. The fabulous twine is Martha Stewart and the “boo” is from Stampin’ Up Tiny Tags.
  3. For the bottom layer, I spritzed Gingersnap SmoochSpritz over the same patterned paper I used for the vacuum.

Meg has been busy creating her first design team submission – Yahoo! Too cute is right!

Here’s what Meg says:

  1. The paper is Stampin’ Up’s Halloween specialty paper, and the bats are flocked. I cut it down to 5 3/8 by 5 3/8 and mounted it to a PTI Smokey Shadow base.
  2. I stamped Zero on Gina K Pure Luxury, colored him with grey copics (C1, C3, C5 and C7), and cut him out.
  3. I stamped the bat wings on another piece of paper from the same SU pack that has Halloween words on it, embossed with black embossing powder, cut out, and attached to the back of Zero.
  4. I used foam tape to pop Zero and his wings up.
  5. The letters are stamped with a Basic Grey $1 set and embossed. Although hard to see, the ribbon is American Crafts corduroy ribbon that coordinates with the flocked bats.

Here’s a card using one of the rosettes…halloween-crow-full-sm

Ok, so I’ve kind of gone a little batty over Tim Holtz’s Paper Rosette die. This is what the die actually looks like:
rosette
You run it through any of the die cutting machines – Cuttlebug, Sizzix… and then you fan fold it. I actually didn’t use the center part, I wanted something larger, so I just used a round punch that I had. They are really easy and very addictive – once you make one you’ll want to make them for everything!

Here’s a YouTube video:

In the meantime I thought I’d post a Halloween card I made using some of my new Halloween stamps.

The fence in the background is a Martha Stewart punch. I punched it out of gray cardstock, added a bit of color by dabbing black and silver ink and then sanded it just a little. The black and gray flowers are also from a Martha Stewart punch – I believe it’s the hydrangea punch (has 3 flowers on it). I found the little spider crystals at a scrapbook store, but you could certainly make them using black stick-on crystals and then drawing some legs. Oh, and I added a wee bit of stitching around the edge by first punching holes and then sewing with some dark gray embroidery floss.
