Vintage Halloween

I really liked the damask stamp when I first saw it, but I wasn't really sure how much I would use it. Was I wrong! I love this stamp for all sorts of cards and, as you can see, it even works for Halloween! With the vintage black cardstock and the scallop border I think it gives this card an elegant vintage-y look.

Stamping up a storm

This past weekend I was stamping up a storm. Well, at least it was a storm for me. I made 5 new halloween cards in two days. I know there are some people who can do that in a couple hours of stamping, but this is A LOT for me. This is one of the cards I made. My first thought was to try to make a card with the Witch crashing against a tree, but several of the A Muse Creative Team ladies have done that, and they did a much better job than I ever could soo....I made her into "patterned" paper by stamping her a bunch of times. And then, of course, I had to use "best witches" as the sentiment. I could have colored each one, but I kinda like the black and white (with some hints of orange) motif. What do you think?

More Treats

Here's a little candy tube for my Tricks and Treats class at Angela's Happy Stamper. This little tube would be great filled with M&Ms, but I just had to use the candy corn stamp so candy corn it is!

Remember this little box? Last December the A Muse Creative Team made
boxes for each day of Advent. They're so fun and easy. This is another Treat box for my class.

Black Cats Prowl

The new "Cat on a fence" stamp is just adorable. He may be out on Halloween, but he's not going to scare anyone. I added the "Tiny pumpkin" on the fence to reflect the sentiment. You can't see it here, but the moon is all sparkly and the pumpkin does actually gleam!

Ya know, with some clever masking this little cat could stand alone! me ideas.

I had fun...

...making this Halloween hanger. This is for upcoming classes at Angela's and Create It Crafts, but I really made it for me! I think I might hang it on my office door. Click on the picture to see a bigger version.

What a treat!

Isn't this the cutest container? Angela's Happy Stamper just got some fun new Accu-cut dies. This is the french fry container and I just had to use it for my upcoming Tricks and Treats class. This little box would be a great little gift filled with candy or other little treats.
