September Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!




Yay! It's time for another Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz and our theme this month is Hallowe'en!! YAY!! Love it!
Smiley from millan.net
The Design Team, has assembled a bunch of clues for you again this month.....just put all the clues together and take a wild guess and you could win a new stamp set that is being released in October!

I decided that I would get busy and start making my treats for the Hallowe'en tricksters that will be around next month. I bought some Lifesaver suckers and  decided to decorate them up - MY style.

We live on a farm so we only have about 10 little people around - at the most! so I can afford to make a few gift bags for the kiddies!



I decided to use the traditional colours, black and orange, since they are always recognizable!

Using the Spellbinders Beaded Circle die I cut out my black circle shapes. Then I used the Spellbinders circle dies to cut out the orange and white circles.

While the white cardstock was still in the die, I used Distress Ink - Antique Linen and sponged around the inside of the die onto the white cardstock.

I stamped the tree from Teeny Trees with a memento black trunk and Smokey Shadow "leaves", and the cute little kitchen witch from Midnight Feast and the sentiment from the Hallowe'en Stamp Set in Memento black.

I adhered them onto the sucker wrapping with a glue dot and then tied some crumply orange ribbon (seam binding sprayed with Dreamsicle Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist) around the sucker stick.

Pretty dang easy....now I hope the little monsters don't rip it apart until at least their parents see it (am I expecting too much LOL!!)

  1. Those are amazing. The new tree stamp works well with the Halloween images and I particularly like the distress ink inside the frame and glimmer misted ribbon.
