Blogging Friends Blog Hop October 

Hello friends,

So glad you stopped by today.  It's the first of the month and so it's time for another Blog Hop with my Blogging Friends!

Our theme this month is fall!  I love this time of year.  The leaves are starting to change and the nights are cooler but still nice in the daytime.  

With fall in mind, I decided to share with you some Halloween treats I made for a craft show I am attending this weekend.  It is a part of an award winning festival called Small Halls Festival - if you are ever in southern Ontario the first weekend in October, you MUST check it out!

Here are a couple of the treats I will be selling at the sale..

I used some new products from the Holiday catalogue as well as some old favourites.  The Cookie Cutter Punch and coordinating stampset is quickly becoming one of my new go to set for fall.  I just love all of the little characters that can be made with this set and the Christmas matching set as well!  My hold steady favourites here are Teeny Tiny Whishes and Georgous Grunge.

Here is another version using ghost chocolates and the skeleton!  I added a tiny little orange heart using the Cookie Cutter punch.

When I saw these gummy fang treats I knew exactly what I was going to use to pretty them up.  I coloured my Dracula using blender pens and my inkpads.

Now you much hop on through the stops.  Next up is Rick - he always has a fabulous project for us.  See you next time.

Happy Monday with Stampin' Celebration Challenge!

Hey there stampers!

I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was fantastic!  I spent the weekend with my besties, scrapbooking, crafting and enjoying some girl time in my favourite retreat spot.  Join me later this week to see all the fun things we created.

But first, it is Stampin' Celebration Challenge time and Wendi has a really fun sketch for us this week!
Fun eh?

What I first thought of was a rainbow inspired card with all of the stripes.

Here is the card I created...

 I had to double check with my 13 year old what order the colours go in. He suggested I write it down because I have asked him this several times before - smarty pants.

Anyway, I decided to use the rainbow colours represented in the brights colour family.  I chose one of the colours to use as the card base and another to use for stamping the greeting.  I chose to use a neutral as the layer between the rainbow of cardstock and the cardbase.  It is Sahara Sand and it is embossed using the Brick Wall embossing folder. 

The tiny strips of coloured cardstock are just scraps, about 1/4 inch.  I used my Triple Banner punch to make the banner ends on each.  My greeting is from the Jar of Love stampset.

Please be sure to join us this week at Stampin' Celebration Challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Happy Stampin'
