Googly Ghouls Day 2 - Batty Boo Basket

Hi Spooky Stampers!

Today I'm back with another Halloween project!  This is a little treat basket made using the Petite Purse die.  It's not just for girl favors!!!

I put a little paper filler in the bottom to have the basket hold its shape and then filled a baggie with candy corn flavored jujus.  YUM!!!

Stampin' Supplies:

           5 ½” x 8 ½” Lucky Limeade Cardstock
·        Cellophane bag
·        ½” Striped Satin Ribbon (2 pieces)
·        Tag from Designer Kit
·        Googly Ghouls Stamp Set
·        Jet Black StazOn ink
·        Petite Purse Die
·        Chevron Embossing Folder
·        Paper Filler and candy
·        Googlies
·        Adhesive, Sticky Strip, and Scissors

The new Stampin' Trimmer will be available for customers to order in November!  You can check it out on page 180 of the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog!  I will be pre-ordering one and will have it at my classes for all customers to try out!

Chock Full of Cheer Day 3

Hi Stampers!

Happy Sunday!  We have been so busy this weekend that I haven't been able to stamp as much as I wanted to, but it's worth it because we are re-doing my bathroom.  Yay!  Maybe I'll post some before and after pics here when we are done.  :-)

Today I'm posting another card from my Chock Full of Cheer class!  This was a fun and easy card to make.  I did show some restraint on the amount of dimensionals I used.  A challenge for me!!!  With less dimension, the card is easier to mail!  

The little dot on the front is from the strip of polka dots that is in the Chock Full of Cheer set.  The 1/2" circle punch works perfectly to punch out individual dots!

Here's the card interior:

Stampin' Supplies:

·       5 ½” x 8 1/2” Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
·       2 1/8” x 1 5/8” (3), 5 ¼” x 4” and 2 ½” x 2” Gumball Green Cardstock
·       1 ½” x 2” (3), 5 ¼” x 4”, and a scrap Very Vanilla Cardstock
·       5 1/8” x 3 7/8” Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper
·       Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso Ink pads
·       Decorative Label punch and ½” Circle punch
·       Candy cane, sentiment, and strip of dots stamps from Chock-Full of Cheer
·       Adhesive, Dimensionals, and Scissors
Very Vanilla A2 envelope
