Creepy Crawly, oh my golly

I seen this Halloween Tree and thought I need to make a card using it. This is what I came up with. I think it is rather cute with the spiders falling from the branches.
I used black for my base and added the purple layer. I just bought the spider web MS border punch, loved that. Now I needed green and orange and it would be a Halloween card with all the colors. I loved the creepy spider from SU and it looks great on the orange. So the tree had to be layered with green.
This is my perfect Halloween colors.

Stamps: Great Impressions and SU
Paper: My stash
Punches: MS

Fall Leaves

Love this card, I did it for my last card workshop. I seen one like it on the Gina K blog. So I thought I would try it. I had to find the right paper that would accept the bleach and turn the right color of the leaves and this paper worked so nicely. I embossed the leaves with Versa Mark, used black embossing powder and heat set it. Now I added regular household bleach with a paint brush just inside the black embossing lines. This card is so pretty in person.

Stamps: Hero Arts
Paper: Beige from my stash
Other: A-2 embossing folder.


Take a look at the cookies on a stick.
My sister made these cookies for my card party a couple weeks ago.
They were so good.
I helped decorate the cookies by adding the sprinkles and adding the gorgeous black and orange ribbon to some of the sticks.
*Can you imagine cookies looking like Candy Corn...
Well, these were really good. And Oh how cute.

I am so thankful to have a sister that will do this for me and my parties.
She is awesome.
Thank You Jan.

Halloween Candy Holder

Isn't this the cutest?
And yummy Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. One of my favorites.
This design paper is awesome, it is from a new company called Echo Park Paper Company and they just opened in April of this year. There is so many new designs, can't wait to try them. This is the Halloween selection.
I punched the black scallop oval and the purple circle using SU punches. Then, I added the bat. The bat is from MS. I closed the candy holder with a piece of Velcro. The only thing left to do was add purple ribbon for a handle.
If you need the instructions, please contact me and I would be glad to give them to you.

Thanks for stopping by...

Caramel Apple

Doesn't this look good enough to eat?
Made me think of all the carnivals and fairs, that is what I get first, then the french fries.
Oh gosh, you have to have the french fries at the fairs.
I couldn't figure out how to tear up paper to make it look like nuts.
Any way, the card was stamped on caramel cardstock with black ink. I cut the apple out and added crystal lacquer. Then I found the cutest little sticks and they worked out perfect for this apple. I tied some purple netting around the stick. I made my candy corn using a circle of all 3 colors and glued them and then I cut the circle like a pie and rounded the corners of each piece of candy corn. I stamped the spider web on the purple background, which made it look really like halloween paper. Next I layered the purple on black and added all my layers to an orange base card. Only thing left to do is the circles and I stamped Trick or Treat on the middle one. Love this card. It took a little bit time, but worth it when it was done. What do you think?

Ship Happens

Love the little penguins on this card.
I haven't inked this stamp set yet and I seen it laying in my stash
and thought how cute this could be.
So here is what I came up with.
I colored it with Tombow markers
and paper pieced the cup and saucer.
Using the Nestie scallop and plain circles was perfect for the layers I wanted to use.

This is the inside of the card.
So cute with the sentiment
(you don't know how strong you are
until you've been in a little hot water.)
Isn't that the truth a lot of times.
Stamps: Not sure, but I think Cat's Meow
Paper: My Minds Eye and my stash
Punch: Modern Label SU , Martha Stewart border and Nesties
Embellishes: Brads
