Crazy 4 Challenges...Trick or Treat

Happy Saturday Peeps!!

Time for a new challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges.

This week our challenge is:

Costume Fun-Images of kids, animals anyone in costume!

I pulled out my Stampin Up Haunt Ya Later set to use on my card.
Love this little witch image and she is so fun to color.
I stamped her with my Black Memento ink onto some Naturals Vanilla card stock and colored with my Copic Markers.
I did the same with the Pumpkin image and stamped her hand again so I could have an extra frog for my little Halloween scene. The face on my pumpkin is from the retired Fall Fest stamp set.
I fussy cut all these out and added them to my circle.  

The Spider and the Sentiment are from the Stampin Up Howl-O-Ween stamp set.
The base of the card is Basic Black and then I a layer of the Naturals card stock.
The DSP on here is from the Happy Hauntings paper pack.
I drew in the string the spider is hanging on with my Black marker.
I added two tiny pearls to the spider for eyes.
I then used a few rhinestones and little pearls for a bit of bling!

Freshly Made Sketches......Trick or Treat

Happy Friday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at 

I was inspired by THIS primitive card by Laura Mellinger to try my hand at a "prim" card.
Most of you know I a huge fan of all things prim and all things Halloween.
My "prim card" did not turn out nearly as cute as Laura's but I still like it.
I used the little witch image from the Stampin Up Haunt Ya Later stamp set.
I love her, she is so cute even if she is not prim,

I used DSP from the Sweet Hauntings and from the Sweet Lil' Things paper packs.
I think I should have sponged my card some to prim it up more.
The sentiment is from the Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

The Card Concept.....hello

Happy Wednesday Peeps!
Tine for a new challenge at The Card Concept.

Here is our inspiration piece for this challenge:

I loved this inspiration piece. I am a big fan of the white pumpkins/gourds and I knew right away that I wanted to make one.

I have in the past made pumpkins using oval and circle punches but
I decided to try my hand at a large one using my oval framelits.

I used embossing folders on each oval, creating this fun textured pumpkin.

I keep it fairly simple from there, using a sheet of wood DSP from the Market Fresh paper pack.
The base of the card is Early Espresso.
I added a few green leaves and a jute bow along with a few sequins.
The sentiment is cut from the Greetings thinlits. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Halloween Treats for the Paper Players

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a couple of treat boxes I whipped up using the challenge this week at 

Create a Halloween card or project!

I decided to make a couple of these fun little candy holders.

I printed out the pattern, which is one I purchased a few years back and is no longer available, onto some Tangelo Twist card stock and then layered the pattern over a piece of Basic Black card stock and then cut it out. I wanted to make a black one and did not know how print it so the pattern would show on the black so I figured this was the best way to do it.

The best part of making these are decorating them. I had fun using my Halloween goodies.
This one is decorated with part of one of the Spider Web Doilies and a black sparkly witches hat.
I die cut the hat with some Black glimmer paper and the Boo to You dies.
I wrapped a bit of silver cording around the hat and the sentiment is from the Sweet Hauntings Stamp Set.

I used DSP on both of these from the Happy Hauntings paper pack
My fave paper in this pack is this one with the stars! LOVE it!!
The skull and bones are from the Howl-O-Ween stamp set.
I added the sentiment from the Sweet Hauntings set. 
I added a small silver bow to this one!

Thanks for stopping by today!

This is a weekend of celebration in my household, it is my wedding Anniversary, 39 years and on the very same day it is our daughters birthday, she turned 29 this year. Yes she was born on our 10th Anniversary. How cool is that?

The flower is made from the Stampin Up Crazy About You stamp set.

The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set, as is the sqiggly line below it.

Crazy 4 Challenges.....Halloween Treat Holders

Happy Saturday Peeps!!

Time for a new Crazy 4 Cahllenges challenge! 
This week marks a new month which means we have a new hostess.
The fabulous Jessie Rone from Can You Say Addicted to Stamps is our hostess this month and our new Guest Designer for this month is Tangii Crain form The Inking Spot of Crain Creations.

Our awesome challenge for this week is Halloween Treats-either cards with treats on them, or Halloween items that you can give treats in.

Boy is this my kind of challenge! 
You guys all know by now that I am a Halloween fan and I enjoy making Halloween treat holders. This box is made from a tutorial I found on Stampin Connection, which is a demo only site.
 I did find a link to a pattern HERE on SplitcaostStampers.
They are so fun and fairly easy to make.
I made a couple for my samples here, I used Basic Black and Tangelo Twist card stock to make my boxes.

The DSP on the boxes are from the Stampin Up Happy Haunting paper pack.

I used the Spider Web Doilies. I cut one in half to use on these two boxes.
I flipped the one on the black box to the opposite side which is white.

I made bows for my two boxes using the same DSP and the Bow Builder Punch.
The sentiments come from the Sweet Hauntings stamp set.

Hope you like these treat holders and try them for yourselves, They hold a lot of candy!

Thanks for coming by today!
