Spooky Stamp-tember :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and finding time to get crafty ,,, :-) This is a long post so get coffee ,,, or you could join me in a glass of red if you prefer !

This offer ends on Monday at MN Ohio time ,,, (Tuesday 6 am CET 5 am UK time ),,, so now is the time to stock up on these cuties :-) AND every order placed during Stamp-tember gets a free gift added to the parcel too !!

First up is a Halloween card, I am a novice at these as we don’t celebrate Halloween here in Malta, but I do love the images and the chance to use them !

This stamp is called Pumpkins, Ghosts and Mice Oh My ! ( thanks America) I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Pumice Stone Distress ink. The papers are Authentique Glowing, perfect for Halloween and I used a Martha Stewart Mouse Border punch, a Spider and EK Success Bat punch ( thanks Christine) I finished with some American Crafts twine and an Inkadinkado sentiment.

I made this little treat bag using my Cricut ( YAY !! it’s working !! ) For this I used the Tags and Bags Cart. I used the same Authentique paper pack and the image is Spooktacular Flower. Coloured with Copics cut out and matted onto a Spellbinders Blossom die cut, this was run through my Big Shot in a Swiss Dots folder and then inked with Wild Honey Distress ink. To make the black twine stiffer I smothered it with Claudine Hellmuth Multi Medium Matte. The sentiment is from the same Mini Scary Words set I used on the card.

Next up is a Joy Fold card using Apple Harvest on the outside and Contented Mudpie on the inside. Coloured with me trusty Copics and Star Dust stickles added here and there. The papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer. I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and a lovely apple charm, coloured with copics . The ribbon is Tim Holtz coloured with Barn Door distress ink .
