Happy Spooooooky Saturday!
I just wanted to share an oldie but goodie scary Halloween card that I made last Halloween. The senitment reads "Have a WICKED Halloween" and I created the background with the Gorgeous Grundge Stampe Set which is still in our Annual Catalog.
I simply free-hand, cut-out the witches hands from green cardstock. When I originally saw this set and those ink splatters it made me think of a crime scene.
Have a great weekend,

Greetings Crafty Friends,
Be still my heart - *sigh*... I am over the moon with joy over how this card came together. This beauty is going to be our family Christmas card for 2016, I just love it!
I originally made these card for a team swap that I was apart of two weeks ago, I've been anxious to share it with all of you.
The Christmas Pines #143496  Stamp Set/Bundle is absolutely beautiful - one of my all-time favorites from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog 2016. Add some gold embossing, gold sequins and let the beauty of the branches speak for themselves. I can't wait to get started on making lots of these for family and friends.

Thank you for taking the time to visit with me and happy crafting!

EEEEeeeeekkkk! I am so excited to share this fun and SUPER cute treat holder with you today! I think it's just adorable and the little Dracula couldn't be cuter. I used the "Home Sweet Home" Dies from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Holiday Catalog and that made it so quick and easy.
Now if I can stop eating the treats inside - aaaccckkkk!!!

Be careful if you are using the White Craft ink on your clear (photopolymer) stamps and blocks.
I didn't clean them off right away and they left the ink on them. I restamped with them using regular black ink and they were stamping just fine. Just a word of caution...

Check out the video below to see how easily these go together!

Have a blessed Sunday,

Thanks for watching and happy crafting,
