    Day 2 – Halloween ideas, from the live last week.

    Day 2 – Halloween ideas Welcome to Day 2 – Halloween ideas. I loved yesterday’s tombstone treat box! For today I have another treat bag and a card. We used the Clever Cats stamp set for both. Not to mention the Cat Punch. My favorite though are the broomsticks! In last Saturday’s live we made these broomsticks. Yes, it is a real stick! Right before the live I went out in the yard and grabbed a birch tree stick! The card broom uses paper and the bag uses Linen Thread. Let’s talk about the card first! We created window sheet “springs” for those two little ghosts. Wrapped a piece of…

I can tell you that you will not miss that SHINY spider… I hear you asking… how did I get the “WICKED” colors like that… You will need Thick Whisper White cardstock (140272), Highland Heather Ink pad (147103) and Granny Apple Green Ink pad (147095).

    Tombstones with Wonderfully Wicked

    The poor black kitty is lost in the cemetery. WHAT?? Where did those tombstones come from?? I will be happy to tell you! Everyday Label punch (144668), do you own it?? I know you do! After that, you will need a 1 3/4 inch piece of Smoky Slate cardstock. This is one of those exceptions to the rules. Punch first, then Stamp. However, you will want to “drag” your edges over your Crafty Whisper White Ink (147277) prior to adding to your card. Also “dragging” the Basic Black layer across the Crafty Whisper White. NOTE: you may also want to use a sponge to get in the exact places you…
