New Halloween Decor!

This is what one side looks like lit up. This is one side unlit. I wanted to make something new for the house. This has fit the bill for sure! The glass block is from a hobby store. I cut Basic Black cardstock down to fit on the outside and mounted some Night Owl DSP on top of that. I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch holes where it would reach. (I will use my retired Anywhere Hole punch for the next one). The block is filled with a small string of white lights. It is all wrapped up with Basic Black 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon. It is two sided. I have a few more ideas for later~ Happy Stamping & Knitting!

Big Shot meets My Digital Studio

I had an idea in my head when I went to make this treat. I was going to use the new Bat punch but didn't like it with the size of this treat. I would have had to add something else, but wanted to keep it simple. Enter My Digital Studio (MDS). I used the punch image in MDS and filled it with the Designer Series Paper (DSP), added the Happy Halloween with text, then printed them out on my computer onto Whisper White cardstock. So the treat holder itself is the Two Tags BigZ die cut in Tangerine Tango cardstock. I then ran the tag through the Big Shot with the new Spider embossing folder. It is tied up with a piece of Old Olive ribbon. I used sticky strip to hold a mini bag of candy corn on the inside! This was my Halloween Treat for an organized swap at the Baltimore Regional.

Ok......I know Halloween isn't here yet!

But I joined a swap at the SU Baltimore Regional for a full Christmas card. This is my swap. I was going for a vintage look and love how this turned out! The stamp is a large background stamp from SU called Christmas Collage and the tinsel is one of our new accessories! Happy Stamping & Knitting!

October! You know what that means,,,,,

Halloween will soon be here! I love this time of year when the leaves are changing, and you may require a sweater with the weather. But I LOVE Halloween. Guess it's just the kid in me still. I love to decorate the house, wear a costume, and just have fun! I also love to create things for Halloween. This is one of the cards I made for a Halloween swap with other demonstrators. The card is embossed with our new Spider Web Embossing Folder on Basic Black cardstock. And the scalloped silver square was made with Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die and our new Waffle paper! The stamp set is Dark & Dreary which you can get wood or clear mount. Happy Stamping & Knitting!
