Farmhouse Christmas Goes Spooky

Combining Farmhouse Christmas with Spooky Sweet  created this fun & spooky scene. Not sure how spooky it is, but it sure came out cute.

The fence and tree are part of Farmhouse Christmas stamp & dies. The bats, stars and moon are from Spooky Sweets. Do you ever combine several sets to create a card? Combining sets is one of my favorite ways to stretch my stamps and dies.

 Facebook Holiday

I took a Facebook holiday this week. Sometimes FB gets overwhelming and it seems to get me out of sorts. Being off FB freed up extra time to create and cook.

Now that fall is almost here I start thinking about soup. I like to have soup on hand for dinner. After a long day of work (or stamping) is feels great to have dinner already prepared.

Here is a new soup I tried today. Adapted from several I have seen online.

Cauldron Bubble for Inspire.Create #026

Popping in with a quick Halloween post. I love everything about Halloween if it is cute, funny and not scary. This sweet little witch from Cauldron Bubble is not scary in the least! Her cute clothes and face make me smile.

This card was inspired by the Inspire.Create sketch challenge.  

Here is the sketch:

 Here is my card:

The little witch is colored with Blends and the bat has a touch of Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Halloween Hopping

Hello my stamping friends. Today I am Halloween Hopping with some talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrators. We are focusing on fast and easy last-minute Halloween treat ideas.

I have three quick treat ideas for you today.

First: An oldie but goodie

Sliding candy bar packaging. You just wrap a candy bar with designer paper; seal the back seam with tear tape. Seal one end (bottom) with tear tape; punch a hole in the top end. Thread ribbon through the holes and slide the candy bar down catching the ribbon. Tie the ribbon off; embellish the candy bar package with Halloween designs.  I used the Large Letters Framelits to spell BOO!

Here it is open. You pull the ribbon and the candy bar comes out.

Second: Five minute treat tags.

These literally took me 5 minutes to create. I used cardstock, scrap designer paper, and Spooky Cat stamp set. Tie with a piece of ribbon to Halloween gummy candy and you have a sweet treat to put on a co-workers desk. Easy-peasy.

Third: Wine for your adult friends.

Our local Aldi always has seasonal wines. I found this Halloween wine and thought it would make an imaginative treat for our neighbors. I have no idea if it tastes good, but it is the thought that counts.  Again I used cardstock, Spooky Cat stamp set and the cat punch. Fast, fun and artistic!

 I hope you enjoy these last-minute ideas for Halloween. Make sure you hop on with the other bloggers. I am sure you will be amazed at their creativity!

Happy Stamping!

Ginny
