Halloween Gum Holder

This little box is a gum holder made with Basic Black cardstock, Spider Web Embossing Folder, Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit, and the stamp set Googly Ghouls. I designed the gum holder, but the template for the holder was by Connie Babbert using the ribbon for a handle.  I chose not to use a ribbon and instead made it so the  flap fits under the spider circle to hold it closed.

Perfectly Preserved Thank You

This is a nice fall "thank you" card made with the Perfectly Preserved stamp set from the Holiday catalog.  The Early Espresso card stock was used in the embossed folder called Woodgrain which can also be found in the Holiday catalog as well as the 1-inch strip of Designer Series paper called Orchard Harvest.  I colored in the corn with markers Lucky Limeade and More Mustard which are a couple of colors used in the DSP.  The base of the card is Cajun Craze, which is another color in the DSP.

Cannery Ghosts

Cannery Ghosts
Aren't these cute little ghosts?  They are actually from Cannery Set Framelit Dies.  Instead of corn, I made them into ghosts and attached them to the front of the card with dimensionals.  I sponged the edges with Basic Black ink and added two Googlie eyes.  The Desiger Series Paper is from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone from the Holiday Catalog.  I used Basic Black card stock and the Spider Web Embossing Folder.  The BOO! is from the stamp set Spooky Bingo Bits using circle punches.  The basic card is used with More Mustard card stock.

Triple-Time Stamping Ghouls

This is another card I made using the Googly Ghouls stamp set.  The technique is called triple-time stamping and I've had so much fun making all kinds of stamp sets using this technique.  First you cut out your Whisper White cardstock and stack with Dotto.  Then you randomly stamp and don't worry if some of the ink doesn't adhere to the edges because you will layer each Whisper White onto Gumball Green cardstock, it won't show.  Be sure to keep the correct direction when adhering each layer.  I used Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The Happy Halloween verse is from Delightful Dozen and I used markers to color it in before I stamped it on the cardstock.  Each layer is put on with Dimensionals.
