Wednesday challenge


Here is my take on the Wednesday challenge for today. Halloween Treats. I found these adorable marshmallow pumpkin at the dollar store. I saw a tutorial forever ago where someone made a package to go around a kit kat bar I think it was. I took that idea and ran with it. This uses a full sheet of black cs. I measured the package of pumpkins and then divided the rest in half. It ended up being 3" for each flap on the back. I scored at 3" on each side and then about a quarter inch away from the 3" mark. I used o' so sticky tape along the back seam and at the top and bottom to hold it closed. After I stuck it together I used my crimper to crimp both ends. Nestabilites were used for the orange frame. Because this was so wide with the black, my square couldn't be cut out with the nestability die so I just used an exacto knife. I used Spooky spooky spooky to stamp my lil dracula and bat. They are colored with copics. I used a white gel pen to add highlights. Dracula is mounted on pop up dots to give it some depth. The trick or treat is up on a pop up dot as well. After I cut the trick or treat with my small little nestability oval die I used a copic around the edges to give it the gray line. The ribbon is SU. Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities. The new stamps were released last night and Christine also added a bunch of new items to the store so go check it out! She has the cutest cupcake boxes!

Sorry I haven't been visiting lately (I've had very little computer time with my new addition). What wonderful little creations you have posted! You are so talented and I love seeing what you'll come up with next.

Baby is doing well, and she's such a sweetie. More good news... Rubbercafe.com has offered to buy my stamp designs. We're in the process of getting a contract. Hooray!
