Petite Pennant Punch Candy Corn Halloween Treat Bags

Look what I just added to my Etsy shop today!! Think Kiddos & Halloween Party Favors! These hang tags are a lot of fun don't ya think? I love using traditional Halloween colors: Basic Black (#121045), Pumpkin Pie (#105117), & Daffodil Delight (#119683).

Tags were created using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch (#122361), 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (#118874), 1 3/4" Circle Punch (#119850), Bitty Bat Punch (Being Retired...but is still available for purchase on the clearance rack (#119279).

Candy Corn details inculde the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (#117335). I also used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to make the "bitty bat" fly.

Hang Tags were tied on the clear Cellophane Bags (#124134) using Bakers Twine in Whisper White (#124262).

EEEK! Stampin' Up! Spider Web Halloween Card

This "SPOOKY" card was created for Stampin' Up! Regionals this weekend. However, I can't take all the credit on creating this one. My daughter was thrilled when I asked her to come "craft" with me. :)

The colors being featured are Old Olive (#100702), Basic Gray (#121044) & Basic Black (#121045).

The Spider Web Embossing Folder (#120889) is a must have for any Halloween Project. The details are just "SPOOK-TA-CU-LAR" in my opinion. My daughter embossed White Vellum Card Stock (#101856). Then sponged the top in "circular motions" with StazOn Ink in Jet Black (#101406). This helped "pop" more of the grayish color.

My daughter also added the sparkling Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) giving the EEEK! sentiment just the right touch. We tied 1/8" Taffetta Ribbon in Old Olive (#119256) to the end of the tag & added dimensionals so it would "pop".

Look at the not so scary spider just hangin' out! He was made using the Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Set (#W-123944; #C-123946). Yes, I cut him out by free hand. Suprisingly, it didn't take as long as you might think. :)
