Halloween Night and Pumpkin Kitty

I was so excited the other day when I received Dandelion Designs's new stamps for Halloween that I went straight to my craft room. I also love these new papers from Doodlebug Designs. I used Tim Holtz pocket envelope die for both projects. The first stamp is called Halloween Night.
I used distress ink for all the white edges. I can't remember the names of the inks I used but they were perfect for inking the edges.
I love this yellow striped washi tape from Freckled Fawn. I didn't want to put a ribbon on this so I went with the tape. If you plan to use washi tape on your projects, it's best to add some adhesive to it so it sticks permanently.
Here's the next pocket envelope using Pumpkin Kitty. This stamp set comes with the jack o lantern face and I felt so silly staring at it wondering how I could use it and then it hit me. I'm supposed to stamp it on the pumpkin! Lol!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Have a great weekend!!!

5 minute matchbook treat holders

Hi, and I'm back with some 5 minute matchbook treat holders. I was cleaning up my mess the other day and got distracted with the scraps on my table. Making this matchbook was so quick and easy using my Sizzix Tim Holtz matchbook die set. I used the Martha Stewart graveyard border punch to punch out the background and I had the spider stamped in a circle already laying on my table. I had planned to use it for something else.
 The spider is a Dandelion Designs cling stamp from last years set.
And the word stamp is a clear Hero Arts stamp from last year too. I put some candy corn on the inside of the matchbook. 
All the stamps on the smaller matchbook are Hero Arts. I used Tim Holtz's orange marmalade distress ink for the background behind the haunted house.
 The circles are Sizzix framelits dies.
 Here's what the matchbook die looks like.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! Have a great week!!!
