Curvy keepsake witches hat pumpkin treat box

Oh my gosh, did I have a great time making these adorable little pumpkin witches.  It features the curvy keepsake box die.  I used the pumpkin face from Sparkly Seasons.  The cute little spider on the side comes from the set called Howl-o-ween and has matching framelits.  The stripes on the "pumpkin" are from Work of Art.  The box base is done in Tangerine Tango with Cajun craze ink used for the stripes.  The witches hat features the spider web doilies, black glimmer paper and the Happy Hauntings designer series paper for the bow.  The basic hat design has been featured in many places and is not my own design.  The hat features a mini clothes pin so it can be taken off to open the treat box.  I hope that you've been inspired to make some of your own.  Thanks for stopping by.  Happy creative stamping!

Supplies used:
Curvy keepsake box die, 2 1/2" circle punch, tree punch, bow builder punch, spider web doilies, Sparkly Seasons, Work of Art and Howl-o-ween stamp sets, mini glue dots, Happy Hauntings Designer Series Paper.

Happy haunting little treat bags

I made these quick little treat bags for my grandson's class party.  It features the Happy Haunting designer series paper (DSP) pack.  I cut the bag topper in very vanilla at 4x4 and scored at 2".  I then filled the treat bags and stapled the bag topper on.  I added a 2x4" piece of the Hapy Haunting DSP over the top of  the very vanilla piece.  The sentiment comes from the stamp set A Little Something.  I inked the top half of the sentiment in Tangerine tango and the bottom half in rich razzleberry.  I then punched them out using the curly label punch.  The pumpkins are from the retired stamp set Fall Fest which has matching  Framelits.  The treat bags are our 4x6" cello bags.

October Paper Pumpkin treat bags

These treat bags were inspired by Paper Pumpkin with Boo.  You can find her video on Lisa Curcio's YouTube channel.  I had fun making these and I thought they were definitely cuter than the original project.  I have lots of left overs to make other projects from the kit.

Woodland happy scene Christmas card

This card came together while I was trying out a new technique of inking and stamping images directly onto the embossing folder.  I started with a piece of card 4x5 1/4" .  I sponged marina mist and night of navy inks directly on to the embossing folder.  I then inked up my images from Happy Scenes and Lovely as a Tree in Mossy Meadow ink and stamped these images directly on the embossing folder.  This was all done on the inside top cover of the folder.  You then place your whisper white cardstock piece inside the folder and run it through the big shot to create the beautifully inked scenery.  I then stamped the both cardinals and the deer from White Christmas.  I used the Aqua painter with real red ink to color the cardinals and soft suede for the deer.  These I fussy cut and put on the card.  To finish it off I stamped and embossed in gold the Merry Christmas banner and fussy cut that.  This focal piece was put on a real red card base.
To finish off the inside of the card, I chose a sentiment from Versatile Christmas and stamped the same tree image in Mossy Meadow from Happy Scenes with another little Cardinal from White Christmas.  It's not a card to mass produce, however, it does makes very special card for a loved one.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope I've inspired you to try some new techniques and see where it takes your creativity. If you need to order any supplies, please click on my shpping cart in the upper right hand corner.

Lovely as a tree retirement card

This card is created using the oak tree from Lovely as a Tree.  The tree is stamped in early espresso.  I then layered the colors using sponge daubers.  The inks I used are crushed curry, Cajun craze, cherry cobbler and old olive. I used the same colors of card stock on an early espresso base.  I added texture by running my cardstock pieces through the wood grain embossing folder.  The sentiment is from Wild about Flowers.

 The inside is stamped using the oak leaves from Lovely as a Tree and using the same inking method as on the outside.  I love how this card turned out.
