Halloween Treats and My Grandson's Visit

Howdy All!

I wanted to start off my post tonight with a quick photo of my adorable grandson, Leland! He came to Las Vegas to visit Grammy and Grampy at the beginning of the month. I hadn't seen him since he was 4 weeks old and now he is 4 months old! Don't you just want to kiss that face?!
Okay, so now to my project! Tonight I have the last of my 4 swaps that took to the SU! Regionals last month. I created some quick treat holders for Halloween using the Two Tags Bigz Die and some fun punch art. The ghost was made using the Owl builder punch - can you see it? I just punched the owl out in Whisper White cardstock, cut off the little feet and turned him up-side-down! FUN! The little pumpkin next to my ghost was created with three 3/4" cirlce punches and the Boho Blossom punch. For the large pumpkin holders I punched 3 Extra-large ovals from some Tangerine Tango cardstock, sponged the edges with the same color ink, layered them and then ran them through the Big Shot with various embossing folders. The stem is just the Jewelry Tag punch and the leaves are from the Bird builder punch. Here is a complete list of supplies used (All products used are Stampin' Up!):

STAMPS: Jack of All Trades

PAPER: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Frightful Sight DSP

INK: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango for sponging

ACCESSORIES: Two Tags Bigz Die, Various ribbons, Punches- Boho Blossoms, Jewelry Tag, 3/16" Corner, 3/4" circle, Extra-large Oval, Owl Builder, Bird Builder

Alrighty!! That's what I have for you tonight! Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by and I hope to see you again soon!

Regional Swap #3

Howdy All!
I have for you today my third card swap from last week's Stampin' Up! Regionals here in Las Vegas. Since my first two swaps were holiday themed I decided to go with a thank You card for my third design. I absolutely love the colors in the Berry Blossoms DSP! So, I just had to use it for this card! I really liked how this card turned out and it was pretty easy to put together! Here is a complete supply list (all products are Stampin' Up!):

STAMPS: Butterfly Prints, Short & Sweet

PAPER: Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, Early Espresso, berry Blossoms DSP

INK: Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso

ACCESSORIES: Scallop Circle BIGZ die, 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Butterfly punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, dimensionals, Big Shot

For the butterflies I stamped the image using the same color ink as the cardstock and then punching them out.

Welp! That's it for today! Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by! Hope to see you all again soon!
