Simply Sunday: Dancin’ in the Moonlight

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And a happy Sunday to you! Are you ready for some fun today? I’ve got a playful combination of products to share with you today… the Monster Bash product suite and the September 2019 Paper Pumpkin: Bone Appétit.

Let’s begin with the Coffin Boxes … such a fun way to share a special treat with your trick or treaters this year. I used the beautiful scroll design from our Monster Bash designer paper,  Now grab your sponge dauber and your Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie ink pads.  I sponged on these colors to create a candy corn look directly onto my designer paper.  Little Wink of Stella to give it some shimmer.

Next I  pulled out my Bone Appétit Paper Pumpkin and adhered the vellum circle onto my lid. I took the new BLACK (I just love them) Stampin’ Dimensionals and used it to pop up my skeleton web … not only does it pop up but it give you the “dark sockets” in the skull! A bit creepy!

I added a little greeting direct from the Paper Pumpkin kit and the enamel embellishments are from our Monster Bash Suite. Then I thought it would be cute to give the recipient of this crafty little gift a “hand” … lol

With the same supplies and sponging technique, I created a coordinating card …

I just love these little skeletons and thought it would be cute to have them dancin’ across the card. These little guys are die cut images, as is the tag.  Did you know that if you subscribe for the October kit … you could then purchase this kit too!!  Past kits are available to purchase when you are a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber!

The holiday season will be here before we know it. And along with putting up the Christmas tree and spending snowy nights by the fire, many of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers will be looking forward to opening their holiday kit. Christmastime papercrafting with Paper Pumpkin has become an annual tradition!

Let’s take one last peek at our Halloween themed Paper Pumpkin and Monster Bash combination … I had a blast making these, and I’m sure my grandkids are going to love them!

Thank you for sharing a part of your Sunday with me. Hope you enjoyed my projects.

Have a wonderful day ~

TODAY’S STAMPING SUPPLY LIST …

 

Not Bones About it … Sharing Bone Appetit

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Last night we kicked off our 2019-20 Stamp Clubs.  I’m so excited to gather my group of stampers around the table again. It’s always a good time.  This month we are creating cards featuring the new “W” Fold card.  I’m sorry I can’t share these with you “yet” … I have another Club on Saturday and I want them to be surprised. I promise I will be sharing in the near future.

Today I’d like to share the little treat boxes that I have made for each of my club members. It comes from the 2019 September Paper Pumpkin: Bone Appetit.  These little cuties are adorned in black strips or polka dots on a orange foil.

The little tags have cute dancing skeletons (above) or a spider web (below) … just too cute! I feel in love with the skeleton hand that acts as a closure for our box …

These little boxes were quick -n- easy to assemble and decorate… and they are filled with chocolates! Can’t get better than gathering with friends, having fun making cool stuff for Halloween and chocolate!

We have a couple chairs around the table that will be open for non-club members to join us. I will post the dates and the card fold / technique that we will be doing that month, and you can RSVP and join us. Although you will not receive Hostess Benefits like club members, you will still get to create the projects with us!

To sign up for Paper Pumpkin or get more details … click the Paper Pumpkin button on the side bar on my post.

Tomorrow I will share with you a totally cute alternative project I created using my kit.

Thank you so much for joining me today, hope your day is a good one.
