Halloween Workshop

Fall is  my favorite time of year and one of the things I love about it (besides the beautiful Montana weather) is Halloween.  My intent was actually to do a little more but I was sick for the last week with a horrible cold so I didn't get as much done as I wanted and the creativity has to be credited to Annette Green--a fellow consultant who is extremely talented!!  Below is a picture of all the projects --  3 cards, a candy bar treat holder and a  coffin.  The template for the coffin was from Martha Stewart's downloads.  Even if you are not a fan of Martha Stewart, her video is a hoot!

Colors used for the projects was Indian Corn Blue, Goldrush and Black CS and Inks.

Recipe:  The Boo Crew Stamp Set various other stamp sets for random stamped area; Sunset Exclusive Ink (EI) pad and marker; Moonlight White Brilliance pad (for polkadots); Black waxy flax; black polka dot organza ribbon.
Recipe:  Spellbound Stamp Set; Pewter brads; black ribbon; sizzix top note die.

Mojo Monday Sketch 155

I love Mojo Mondays and wish I had more time to do more of the sketches. I was glad I had off Monday because it gave me time to work on a card. I decided to use the October Stamp of the Month because I wanted to play with the new Mistletoe Papers!

Here is the Mojo Monday Sketch # 155:

Here is my standard size card:

This next one shows the dimension of the card and the inside.  The pinkish color is really glitter but the camera just doesn't pick up the shiney-ness.

Supplies:  D1443 Share the Magic Stamp Set; Mistletoe Paper Pack; Creative Basic Mistletoe Collection; Silver Ribbon from the Creative Basic Mistletoe Collection; Cranberry, Garden Green, NE Ivy markers; Prisma Glitter; Licorice Opaques adhesive gems. 

Have a terrific Thursday.  I'm off to take First Aid Training!
