Happy Halloween Holiday Home

 Love this house for Halloween.

Basecard is Pumpkin Pie with a layer of basic black on top 3/4 only.  Cut a layer of Eggplant Envy and emboss with large polka dot embossing folder.  Punch Word Window punch on the side as shown and stamp "happy halloween" from Teeny Tiny Wishes set in black through the opening.  Punch a circleusing Daffodil delight CS and stamp the bats in black.


Stamp the  tree with versamark after dusting the black CS with embossing buddy and heat emboss with iridescent ice embossing powder on both sides of the house.  Mount the Elegant Eggplant cardstock as shown and diecut banners from Pumpkin pie and Motley Monsters DSP as shown.  Attach with staple onto the black CS.   Stamp the house on Basic Gray and on Daffodil delight cardstock for the windows.  Add spider webs on the house.  Cut the windows and attach to house- if a little wonky, it makes it more spooky (Margery's idea!)  Diecut and mount the house with dimensionals.
Color the staple with Pumpkin Pie blenderabilities using the sharp pen point tip.
 Stamp the ghost and pumpkins onto white CS and cut out and mount as desired.
 How fun is this?

October Stampin' Party Projects

This is some of the sampling of the cards we made for the October Stampin' with Lynda.

This was cased from Michele Reynolds (Michelerey at splitcoast).
The base card was Mossy Meadow with expresso layered on top embossed with Woodgrain EF.  We made tags with Angled tap topper with 2" strips of paper then stamped Ornamental PIne in Mossy Meadow then the cone with Expresso.
Scallop Oval punch the Mossy meadow CS and sentiment from Petite Pairs in Expresso then punch with large oval, then mount with dimensionals.

Tie the tag with vanilla seam binding ribbon and tied with the gold baker's twine.
 The final touch is a little 2-way glue gun to highlight the branches, cone for a touch of "snow" with the dazzling diamond glitter (the cheapest way to make any card shine!)
This is another card we made for the month cased from CAR372 on splitcoast.
Used the Fall fest ghost die to cut the whisper white CS then stamped the face on it with basic black. mount the ghosts on punched out black squares and diecut BOO! from Little letters thinlit mounted on pumpkin pie, then layer of basic black on pumpkin pie basecard and easy peasy card for make and take.  Thanks CAR372!

Halloween Expresso Cups

 Cutest little idea from Mercedes Weber-

She gave each of us in the stamping group this little expresso cut decorated with Motley Monster DSP and tag made with Merry Everything stampset and punched with matching Note tag punch.  The quarter is there to show you relative size.
This was one of the cups I made for some of my friends- filled with candy and stuck a straw I got from the local M*chaels on sale. I filled it with chocolate covered coffee beans from Trader Joe's.  Love it!

Not my idea but I thought it was so cute, just wanted to share it with you.....
