Halloween Treat Holder

Two quick Halloween Treat Holders to share with you today!
To make the Trick or Treat candy corn holder, I used a wide mouth half-pint Mason jar, Silver Mini-Tinsel trim, Black Baker's Twine and the Seasonal Chum's stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Tags Framelits dies.

The Halloween Pillow box was made using the Trim Your Stocking thinlits dies, Spooky Night Designer Series Paper, the Cat punch and the Labels to Love stamp set.

Halloween and Fall Theme Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Groups Halloween & Fall Theme Blog Hop.  Whether you started with my blog or "hopped" over from one of my teammate’s blogs, I am happy you stopped by!

Halloween is such a fun time of year, with all the changing colors and the cool, frosty mornings.  The little ghosts and goblins coming to your door Trick or Treating. 
The Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog has so many cute stamps, die cuts and ideas in it that it was hard to choose which one to feature on this blog hop.  I ended up with a combination of several of the stamp sets and die cuts.
This card was a fun one to do, almost all of it was completed by using thinlits or a punch.  
The background is watercolored onto Shimmery White cardstock using Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Perfect Plum ink.  The tombstones were stamped in Basic Black ink and are from the Graveyard Gate stamp set.  
The gate was cut out using Basic Black cardstock and the Detailed Gate thinlits dies.  The lock and key are cut out using a Silver Foil Sheet and the Detailed Gate thinlits dies. 
The sign is made with Perfect Plum cardstock. The sentiment is from the Graveyard Gate stamp set, as are the bats.  
The ghost is from the Sweet Home stamp set.  The ghost was stamped on a piece of Vellum and then was cut out using the coordinating Home Sweet Home thinlits dies.  
The cat is from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and is punched out using the coordinating Cat Punch.  The pumpkins are also from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and are cut out using the coordinating dies from the Patterned Pumpkin thinlits dies.

Thankful for you card

If you are in a pinch for time and need an elegant card to present to someone in a hurry, then this is the card for you.  Using the two-step Painted Harvest stamp set card-making couldn't get any quicker or easier.  
The sunflowers are stamped in Crushed Curry ink, the flower centers are Soft Suede ink.  The Fern, which is also a two-step stamp, are stamped in Old Olive ink. Linen thread is wrapped around the card front panel two times and then tied in a bow.  The sentiment is stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock using Early Espresso ink and adhered to the card front using snail. The front panel is adhered to the card front using dimensionals.
