I want my Mummy!

For the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week I used Stampin' Up!'s Googly Eyes stamp set on a Crumb Cake base with Authentique Halloween paper. The twill tape is retired SU.

Harvest Thanks

It would be awesome if every ingredient that I wanted to use to create what is in my head was available at the same time from Stampin' Up!, but that never seems to be the case. I loved the old SU copper embossing powder and cording, it is so lovely for autumn. I embossed the Seasonally Scattered thanks on the Wood Grain background (top border punch is Martha Stewart), and used the Fall Fest pumpkins and Fall Fun dies in Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Tangerine Tango. Very Vanilla base.

Elegant Bird Ornament

The Bigz die Elegant Bird (Had to have it and never used it until today :) in Real Red with Cheerful Christmas embossed in white. Punched a hole and used silver cross stitch thread to hang. 

Halloween Wreath

A super simple Halloween project using a styrofoam wreath ($5 at Joann's), spider on web ($6 Joann's) and two lengths of Halloween tinsel garland from Wal-Mart ($2.44 each). The lights reflect very nicely from the pumpkins and it looks better in real life.

Scattered Bliss

Stampin' Up! Seasonally Scattered in Blackberry Bliss (ink, cardstock, and ribbon). Added some small flowers from Hello There in Strawberry Slush. Scallop edge embossing strip folder for edges and min silver brads for flower centers. All current SU.

All Is Calm Washi

Today I am working with the new washi tape All Is Calm from the mini catalog. I used some tea lights and easily covered them with the tape and packaged in a cello bag with the Holiday Home set, Top Note die, and Frosted Sequins. The cello bag is a recycle, one of the die sets came in this bag and worked just fine for this.

Looking forward to working with the new set Seasonally Scattered. Love the sentiments. This one uses Blackberry Bliss ink and the new embossing folder from the holiday mini along with the feather set and coordinating dies. The funky looking turkey was made using the owl punch.
