Super simple Halloween Treat Bag

Evening- 2 posts in one week, I am doing well. Tonight I though I'd share a quick little halloween gift bag I've made.

I very simply cut a tag rom Doodlebug paper using the Papersmooches stitched tag die. Then I cut a little bat using a now retired Clearly Besotted coordinating halloween die. Next I added some googly eyes- so cute. Finally I used a MFT die to cut a little banner to stamp the sentiment on.

To put everything together I attached a piece of ribbon and bit of black twine to the tag and used an orange staple to hold the little paper bag closed. The bag is actually from Docrafts, it had a chalkboard style sticky label on it which I peeled off and inside is a little halloween chocolate figure. 

Now all I need to do is make 11 more so all the members of my department cn have one one the last day of the half term!

Evening, flying in with a quick card for Less is More (Jewel colours) and CASology (Science- but i missed the deadline). I've used the Scientifically Speaking stamp set and matching dies from Clearly Besotted Stamps. 

As you can see I've added loads of glitter to the "chemicals' in the flasks- if only Science REALLY was this sparkly!

CASual Friday Challenge- Tic Tac Toe

Morning, happy October and welcome to our CASual Fridays Challenge theme for the month and it's Tic Tac Toe (or noughts and crosses if your from the UK).

I've picked stiching, spritzing and embossing. I've used faux sticking to attach the hanging spider, the purple ink is obviously the spritzing and the little spiders have been heat embossed with black embossing powder. 

I've used the CASual Friday's Spooky stamp set- isn't it fun!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you get time to play along with us this month!

Hello, I hope you're having a nice Sunday. Yet again I've been struggling with trying to find time and enthusiasm to craft but I'm here with a little card for the latest Less is More challenge where the ladies have asked us to include 'something shiny".

I've stuck a piece of patterned paper to my card base and then used Flitter glue to add gold foil to my sentiment along with a good sprinkling of sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Merry Christmas

Hello, happy Saturday! I've been very creative this morning and made quite a few inky bits and pieces but only one finished card which is for today's Less Is More Challenge where the theme is "green and gold".  It also fits with the challenge of "Holly" at Happy Little Stampers and also at "Merry Monday Challenge"- thanks Sarah!

I think I'm feeling so freshly inspired after a lovely time with Sarah, Jen and Lizzy- we had a North West craft meet up at Bents Garden Centre near Warrington and had such a nice time- we just chatted for hours! Anyway, I've used my newly rediscovered enthusiasm to ink up and new stamp I purchased from the Inkylicious star at the Sincerely Yours papercraft show last weekend. It's called "Merry Christmas"!!

I simply inked it with a gold Brilliance ink pad and added some green ink to the holly leaves. Then I put gold embossing powder on the gold ink and heat embossed it. Finally, I attached the panel to a cream card base!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a lovely weekend.

CASual Friday- Music

 Morning, and welcome back to another CAS-ual Friday clean and simple challenge and this time the theme is Musical.

For my card I used the Love Notes stamp set. I slightly bent the large music stamp as I stuck it onto the clear block then I stamped it with grey ink. Next I added a few die cut red heart covered with glitter. Finally, I added a liberal sprinkle of clear, mini adhesive stones.

I do hope you get time to play along with us this month!

Challenge Inspiration:

Hello there!

Hello, sorry it's been a week since I last posted a card but here I am today with a card!

I've used a newly purchased mini-stamp set from Lawn Fawn. 

I stamped the 3 jellyfish and then stamped them again on SSS masking paper and applied them over the images on the card. Next I used a distress ink blending foam pad to apply some blue Memento ink over the jellyfish followed by spritzing some various colours of ink. 

After the inks had all dried I removed the masking paper and  coloured the jelly fish using pencil crayons. I also added a little bit of shimmer over the top.

To finish I added a length of ribbon around the bottom, a Lawn Fawn sentiment at the top and a few iridescent sequins. 

On reflection I guess there isn't much "white space" on this card, but it is almost one layer so I think it is still a CAS card- what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today,
