Below is one of the ways I decided to use this stamp set.  It is a 5" x 7" size card.  Note that you can click on the picture to see details.

Here is just a closer look at the detail (showing the sparkly brads (retired) and the sparkles.

Supplies:  Holiday Magic Stamp Set; Believe Workshop of the Go Papers; Black, Sweet Leaf, White Cardstock, Topiary, Sky, Black Exclusive Inks; Clear Sparkes, Red Sparkles; Glitter Brads (Retired); Border & label punch from SU; Spellbinder Dies; Quick Cut Scallop Die & Spellbinders Circle Dies.

Compatibility with CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge:  I was doing some playing around and found that you can cut the perfect outline shapes with your Cricut for the stocking stamps setting the size to 3-1/4".  The cutting shape is found on page 67 and it is the shift key + 7th key on bottom row.  See below and click to see detail better:

For the Christmas tree/banner (however you use it).  I had to make a height and width adjustment.  I use Cricut Design Studio because I'm a visual person and it just works so much better for me.  Anyway, I set the height to 3.5" and the width to 2".  The cutting shape is found on page 31 and is she shift key + 1st key in 2nd row.  See below and click picture to see detail better:

So that's why I've got a cutting machine!

Halloween Banner

My last workshop turned out to be a lot of fun.  We made a Halloween banner and it didn't take a lot of time and turned out pretty "spooky".  I wanted to make one similar to the one in the Idea Book in the Mischief Workshop on the Go (WOTG) section, but I didn't want to use up all my paper packet to do it.  I also didn't want to make everyone buy the WOTG packet just to make the banner.  So, we ended up using only one sheet (from the consultant bulk paper package) and 1 sheet of Black CS.  I added in some Sunset paper.  Okay, here is my true confessions.  I am a ribbon and embellishment hoarder.  So, it wasn't too hard to come up with those finishing touches.  So, here it is (click to see more details):

Below are the individual pennants:

Supplies:  Mischief WOTG kit; Mischief Workshop Stamp Set; All Hallow's Eve Stamp Set; Sunset, Olive and Black Cardstock; Black and White Exclusive Ink; Silhouette Creative Basis B&T papers; Cricut Art Philosphy Cartridge (letters); Black Mini-Medley Accents; Sparkles (skull eyes); Pearl opaques, liquid glass; Martha Stewart Scary Fence Punch; Theresa Collins Black diamonds (on the "k").

I think I'm ready for Halloween now!
