Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop - Spooky Halloween

 Good Morning, Stampers!


Oooooohh! The Create with Connie and Mary
Design team is creating SpOoKy cards this week.
Are you ready for Halloween?? 


I love the Magic in this Night designer paper so much, I had nothing but scraps left!
Good for me that it made it so much easier to create this card! 

I simply adhered the strips of  paper onto a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper
White cardstock and then adhered that to my card base.

It's a fun way to get a unique background - give it a try!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Festive Corners, Harvest Hellos
Ink: Whisper White, Tuxedo Black
Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Tranquil Tide, Magic in the Night DSP
Accessories: Apple Builder punch, Iridescent Pearls, Halloween Magic dies

Control Freaks October Blog Hop - Gratitude

   Hello, Stampers!


Welcome to the Control Freaks October
Blog Hop! This month, we are shaing our gratitude 
with all of you because we couldn't be more grateful
to have you join us each month! 

Whether you are arriving from Bree's blog or just starting
out here, the design team is so excited to share
their creations with you!

I came across these sweet little Acorn Boxes on
Pinterest recently and knew they would look 
adorable in our Gilded Autumn designer papers - what do you think??
How pretty they would be as placecards/favors on the Thanksgiving table?!




The larger box is the original size of the pattern. 
The smaller box was printed at 50%.  





For the tag, I first stamped the sentiment on Early Espresso.
I then stamped the leaf onto the Very Vanilla cardstock using Versamark
 ink and then cut it out.  It gives it lines on the leaves a little softer look
and doesn't overpower the sentiment.



Either way, I'm sure you could fill 
them with something tasty for everyone to enjoy!


SU!pplies:
Stamps: Gather Together
Ink: Versamark, Early Epsresso
Paper: Very Vanilla, Gilded Autumn, Brushed Metallic Gold and Copper
Accessories: Copper ribbon, Cinnamon Cider ribbon, Gathered leaves, Acorn trinkets
