Wicked Cool Witches Boot - Halloween

I made a witches boot to include chewing gum and found this idea on a very talented, fellow demo named Frenchie. I wanted to make one too for Halloween. The boot is made using the new stocking die from the Holiday Mini. I cut out two Basic Black stockings and two 3" circles. I used the 1 3/4" circle punch to punch a half moon out of each circle and glued it to the stocking at the toe to make it look like a boot. Then I inserted one boot in the Spider Web embossing die. I lightly added White Craft ink with a Dauber to the embossed spider web. I used Elegant Eggplant to make the tops of the boot and inserted into the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and then attached them to the top of each boot. I attached the two boots together with Dimensionals. I used the stamp set "Wicked Cool" to stamp on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1" square punch. I used the Postage Stamp Punch to punch out of Pumpkie Pie cardstock. I used the Crop-a-dile to punch a hole and attached 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon and attached the sign to the front of the boot top. I used the Word Window Punch on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut them in half with Paper Snips and inserted Glimmer Brads to each one and attached to the boot. I sprayed Shimmer Mist on mine when it was all finished. Then I used Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the Round Tab Punch to punch out a round tab to fold over the gum attaching it with glue dots and punched a hole for the 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon to pull it out with.

Halloween Sour Cream Containers

These are sour cream containers I made using the Frightful Sight DSP, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Crimper, Sticky Strip and Spooky Bingo Bit stamps. These are very easy to make.

Hello Doily

This is a card I made in July and realized I never posted it. It is made with Hello Doily and using the Doily Triple Layer Punch. First I stamped on Whisper White with Concord Crush ink. I trimmed it out and adhered to a Wisteria Wonder folded card that I had stamped with Delicate Doilies stamps with Wisteria Wonder ink. Next, I stamped another Hello Doily stamp on Whisper using Wisteria Wonder ink only I trimmed the inside of the doily and adhered it on top of the Concord Crush doily with Dimensionals. Last, I used the Doily Triple Layer Punch using Concord Crush and Whisper White.
