Tricks or Treats?

Happy Sunday, y'all!! It is pouring here in FL right now, so I thought I would throw together a little Halloween project. Yes, it is time for me to start working on Halloween stuff!

I made a Treat container using an upcycled Tootsie Roll container. This would make a cute gift to give a neighbor filled with whatever sweet or spooky treat you like!

This is So Spooky Tilda. She is out of stock at the moment, but I am sure Tab will be getting her back in stock soon. I colored her with Copics and cut her out. She is popped up on top of the doily I sponged with orange and black distress ink. I used 2 different Martha Stewart punches: drippy goo and spooky picket fence. The picket fence is hard to find, but this is a good substitute.
Here is the side view of the sentiment. I stamped them with black distress ink and cut them out. They were sponged with purple and black distress ink and popped up with 3-D tape.

Here is a close-up of Tilda. The Copics I used are:

E11, 00, 000, R30, V09, 06, 04, 01, C7, 5, 3, 1, E37, 35, 33, 59, 57, 55, 53, 50, Y26, 21

We all scream for Ice Cream!!!

Happy Wednesday!! Hope everyone is having a fine day so far. My boys have a friend over to play and we are just hanging out today! Love days like this!

7 Kids has a brand new challenge out today:

Texturize It!

*Use lots of product and embossing to add texture to your project!

I decided we all need a little more ice cream in our lives, so I used Ice Cream Birgitta from CC Designs. This super yummy paper is Hello Luscious from Basic Grey (my new favorite!) I distressed all of the edges of the paper with this tool. Quick, easy and adds lots of texture and dimension! I embossed the teal panel behind Birgitta with a Swiss Dots embossing folder. I added some Stickles to her ice cream and the flowers.

Here are the Copics I used:
E11, 00, 000, R30, BG10, 11, 13, Y26, 21, E50, Y17, 11, RV17, 14, 13, G12, 20

Be sure to stop by all of the other 7 Kids DT Members to check out their sweetness too!

Hi Peeps,

I am back again with a quick post about some new items in my Etsy shop. These are mini notecard sets measuring 3" x 3". These are perfect for a gift tag, quick note to a friend or co-worker or to tuck in your child's lunch box! In addition to that, they are a perfect gift to keep on hand when you need to give a little gift!

They come in sets of 5 with white envelopes. I have Christmas as well as everyday styles in my shop. Here are some of the styles I have available in my shop:

Each set comes packaged with 5 cards and 5 envelopes, a coordinating belly band and wrapped in a cellophane envelope.
Don't see what color/quantity you like? Just email me and I can make custom orders!


Hawaiian Birthday

Happy Wednesday!! It has been sooo long since I have posted! My family and I took a long road trip to visit family in TX. It was so much fun to see my brothers, cousins and other family. I have been trying to get back into the swing of things since I got back, but had a lot to take care of after my 2 week trip!

I have a new card to share with you using one of the new CC Designs Swiss Pixies stamps.

This is Hawaiian Birgitta. I love these stamps! They are so easy to color and cute! I used some delicious new paper from Basic Grey - Hello Luscious. This paper is simply yummy! I layered lots of flowers and leaf punches on this simple layout. I cut the image out and layered it with some Nesties.
