Inspire Me Friday ~ Halloween Treat Bag

Hello, everyone!  I’m so excited that October has arrived because I love making Halloween projects for my little nieces and nephews!  I love the excitement of Halloween, the costumes and the scary stories, the coming of fall and the cooler weather…and who doesn’t love the candy?

My project this week features our newest release set, “Happy Mail,” paired with the fun “Beware” set.  I made a quick and easy treat bag for a little one…and I will likely make more!

I punched circles from card stock that matched the polka dots on my treat bags (from the dollar section at Target — a great find!).  On one side I stamped “TO:” while I stamped the “FROM” on the reverse side.

I combined stamps from both sets to make the topper for the bag. I thought the “open me if you dare” went perfectly with the upper-case OPEN ME!

I also thought it was a fun touch to stamp “Happy Halloween” directly onto the bag. Can you spy it at the bottom?

Create It Wednesday ~ {Happy Halloween Mail}

What an awesome Wednesday to share a CAS Halloween card and matching envelope using the crazy versatile {Happy Mail Stamp Set}…which I of course combined with the wickedly great {Beware Stamp Set}.

My favorite color combo for the witching season is lime green, purple, orange, and black. Without the lime though, I’d be lost 🙂 I stamped the circular images from the {Beware Stamp Set} to create patterned paper. Using 3 nesting circle dies to created the focal point, I pitched out (put in the recycle bin) the middle ring so that the black card base would show between the out and inner most circles. I stamped the sentiments and arranged them from longest to shortest. This stair step look works great as a design element for CAS cards.

And who wouldn’t want to send this card in a matching envelope…which by the way, I’m really feeling mail art right now. The new {Happy Mail Stamp Set} had just what I needed!

Design It Monday ~ {You’ve Got Mail}!

Hey there stampers! I have an autumn card to share with you featuring the newest Happy Mail stamp set. I wanted to create a fun background for this one. Hope you like it!

I’ve stamped the You’ve Got Mail sentiment repeatedly using a soft gray ink on a cream background. Next I filled in with the set of arrows. It looked just a bit too plain, so I added the dots from the Fall Colors stamp set.

This panel was added to a cream card base then topped with some die cut patterned paper from my stash. My focal was created with two stamped and fussy cut leaves from the Fall Colors set and the postage stamp image from the Happy Mail set.

I trimmed along the edges of the stamped image then used a tiny hole punch to give it the look of a real stamp! Don’t you just love the way this looks!
