Gift Givers Halloween

It's the weekend!  Yeah!  And…not much planned, which is a GOOD thing.  Have to watch the OSU Buckeyes, of course! 

Hope you have been checking out Create with Connie and Mary and seeing the FREE TUTORIALS and who our Guest Designers will be!  We still have another FULL week of surprises!  It is always so exciting to start a new session!  Today, we are announcing another Guest Designer!  Make sure you stop by and see who it is and get to know her a little bit!  You will ABSOLUTELY LOVE the project she did for us this Holiday Edition!  Oh my gosh…I will be making at least one for SURE!  But, you do need to be a subscriber to see it!  So, take advantage of our Early Bird Savings…$5 off…now only $29.95 US!  Click on the Buy Now button on my right sidebar of my blog!


Gift Givers is another one of the stamp sets we are featuring this session in our Preview Projects!  I used it to make a fun Halloween card for Pals Paper Arts Halloween Challenge (PPA110) this week!  I think these pumpkins are SO cute all lined up in a row!  Halloween doesn't HAVE to be scary!


I started with a base card of Pumpkin Pie and layered on Basic Black.  Then I cut a piece of Pick Your Poison Designer Paper to go over top.  I added the 1 1/4" Basic Black Striped Ribbon that I cut the edges off and fringed it a little.  I also placed down Sticky Strip and ruffled it along the one side.  I added a Pumpkin Glimmer Brad at the end!


I also used the Dotted Ribbon Punch and cut two Basic Black pieces to lay down vertically.  I stamped the pumpkin image from Gift Gifts stamp set in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla and watercolored it with my Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers.  It is punched with the Decorative Label Punch and layered and popped up on the XL Oval Punch of Pumpkin Pie.


Love how it turned out!  I hope to find some time to work in my stamping studio for a while…but hubby wants to pick out paint colors for a couple rooms.  Fun!  I'll just take my Stampin' Up! cardstock with me!  lol!

Connie, love this stamp set.  Your falling leaves on your blog put me in the mood for Fall.  Too cute!  Thanks for sharing.

Love the look of the fun, non scary Halloween card.  I love the details of the frayed striped ribbon with the orange brad, the happy pumpkins & dotted stripes.  The dotted border looks just like a ribbon!
