My Halloween Workshop Projects!

Last night I spent a wonderful evening with my friend Lisa at her home with family and friends! Thank you Lisa! Boy, we had a good time playing with my stamps, and even made the best of it when I had forgotten the brown ink for my owl and he had to be Staz-On Black! Yikes! Anyway, we discovered that the owl was a very big part of her life right now as there must be an owl mascot at Brandeis University where her daughter is now a student! How funny to see that owl pop up!

Anyway, here are the 3 projects we made:

This is the first photo. We used the Jack of all trades stamp set for this card. Notice the little bit of bling on his hat? The ladies loved the bling! We had sparkling teeth, eyes, hats, you name it! I didn't think of all that! The "spooky" from the Wicked Cool stamp set was stamped in Versamark on the orange c/s -- pretty sure that was Tangerine Tango although "Jack" was stamped in Pumpkin Pie. I was going to use black satin ribbon across the middle but discovered late yesterday that I was running low, so I embossed a black c/s strip with the Spiderweb folder -- that worked too so I could demonstrate our fabulous Big Shot!! The paper is Fright Night -- I never did purchase any of the Pick your Poison paper but I'm not quite sure why -- I think the rat on one of the pieces of paper turned me off!!

Project number 2 was a matchbook -- I used the hostess stamp set from the mini catalog -- we stamped the autumn wreath in Tangerine Tango and then colored in the leaves. Then I (not we!) stamped the owl in Soft Suede and popped him up! Isn't he so cute?! Inside, I stapled a pack of M&M's -- yum!

This was kind of project number 3. Above is actually my hostess gift -- a small 3x3 box filled with 3x3 cards like the one above (all different -- pumpkin pie c/s, black, concord crush, old olive, etc.), each stamped with a different character from the Batty for You stamp set. I demonstrated the embossing technique with the "Ghostess with the mostest" stamp set which I thought was entirely appropriate for my hostess!!

Well, gotta run and prepare for this weekend's open house! If anyone lives around here and wants to host a party with me, call me! I'll come up with some more fabulous projects!! And if you're around on Sunday afternoon, come check out my Holiday Open House! Can't wait to share with you all!
