Halloween Petite Cafe Bag

Halloween treat holders are one of my favorite 3D items to create, so  I was excited to see the challenge from Try Stampin' on Tuesday this week.  The sketch we have is for an item other than a card, so Petite Cafe Bag it is!  The cool thing is, you could use this sketch for a card, so I may have to do that too later in the week!

I have been into Fall Fest lately, so I went ahead and used it for my bag along with Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper.

Is this cute or what!!  I just love these kinds of projects that come together so easily and are so fun to give away!  I put candies in the bag and it's ready to go for the holiday.  It was simple to make, here's the steps:

- Added a strip of Motley Monsters Designer Paper to the bottom
- stamped three pumpkins with Tangerine Tango on Whisper White and die cut with framelits
- stamped "happy" from Age Awareness with Jet Black Staz On
- stamped "halloween" with Rotary Alphabet stamp on Tangerine Tango, created banner with the Hexagon punch, added to bag below "happy"
- added the three pumpkins above the sentiment
- added candies to the bag, closed it and added a bit of Tangerine Tango two tone trim

This is so easy to put together and would be a wonderful treat to give a way at a party or school.  I do hope you will join the challenge and make something with us!  For all the details plus more great samples, visit Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Happy stamping!

Fall Fest

I have a second card to share today, this one is for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  Here's a look at the sketch Mary Jo has for us this week.

My card features Fall Fest and Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper.

I had SOOOOOO much fun with this card!!  The ghost is just too cute for words and super easy to make.  He's just die cut from Whisper White with a couple of googly eyes and a small black mouth drawn in with marker.  I paired him with a simple pumpkin and a great background of designer paper.

After all the designer paper layers and focal point were in place, I added a couple of little details.  First, the sentiment from Ghoulish Greetings.  "Happy haunting" is the PERFECT sentiment for this card.  I stamped it directly on the card base with Staz On.  Lastly, spooky eyes from Freaky Friends are stamped around the card in Tangerine Tango to match the spooky eyes on the designer paper next to the ghost.

I hope you are inspired by this card to join the challenge!  Just go to Technostamper for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.

Four Feathers

I have lots to share this week, starting with two challenges for today!  The first challenge is for the Creative Challenge Club.  We have a fun sketch for the week.

I went with soft colors and Four Feathers, a break from Christmas cards today!

I love this set, there is so much versatility!  This is a sympathy card with muted colors.  Inspiration came from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack.  I wanted to keep the design crisp and clean with just a few colors and simple stamping.

Before adding a strip of designer paper to the center, I stamped a couple of feathers in Smokey Slate to keep the muted look.  The focal point is made up of a couple of stamps.  The watercolor background is from For All Things, stamped in Soft Sky.  The sentiment is from Blooming with Kindness from the main catalog stamped with Lost Lagoon.  The feathers are stamped and die cut with the Four Feathers Bundle.  Two Pear Pizzaz feathers and one Lost Lagoon feather surround the sentiment to finish off the card.

I also stamped the outside of the envelope to make a complete look.

We would love for you to join the challenge with us!  Just go to Creative Challenge Club for more details and great samples from the Design Team.
