Happy Thursday everyone! Only one more day until the weekend---yippee! This week has been extra long and the weather not so swell and I'm ready for some rest. I swear my "old" body is still recovering from the NKOTB concert last Thursday--amazing what 20 years will do to ya, ROFL!! We're going to take the kids for our annual Pumpkin Patch trip this weekend if the weather is nice. It's been a family tradition since they were babies and one of my favorite fall activities--we'll get a bunch of pumpkins, cornstalks, and mums for our front porch and drink lots of hot cider (my favorite). The kids like to run around on the bouncy house and we always do the corn maze (we have always done it in under 1 hour, yeah) and its HUGE!!
So, in gearing up for our fall field trip I have some Halloween goodies/treats to share with you today. First up is this cute pail (from Target $1 spot) filled with pixie stix treats. I always see those Peppermint Patty sandwiches (I hate peppermint, yucky) made as treats so I thought why not use pixie stix (which my kids love) instead. I used my new stamps from Penny Black's "Trick or Treat" set and chose a few to stamp out and color w/ Copics. I added a few stickles too ! Pretty quick and easy to assemble--I just used my circle/scalloped nestabilities to cut out the circles and sandwiched them together with tacky tape. The pail I decorated with a scalloped circle embossed w/ my Cuttlebug folder and then rubbed black ink over the raised image. The lil' tag is a CB die that I stamped using PTI's "Spooky Sweets II" set. Cutie-Patootie!
This second project is a card I made using CC Designs "Sugarplums Halloween" set--isn't this devil the cutest? I stamped everything out separately and cut out--I think its so much fun that you can make as many street signs with any sayings with this set, fun! The dp is from Cosmo Cricket's "Haunted" line. I used my Fiskars border punch to make the bottom border and corner brackets. I stamped "spooky" along the bottom in white palette ink. The bats were punched with a MS punch from vellum and then I inked them up with dk brown ink and attached with glue dots. Devlish fun I say!
Last project of the day is this cute lil' coffin treat box--it opens from the top so you can put candy inside. The template and directions are at the Penny Black website if you're interested. I layered some more of Cosmo Cricket's "Haunted" dp on top and inked around the edges with white ink. The lil ghosty and sentiment is from CC Designs again--isn't he a cute ghosty--that I attached with dimensionals for pop.
I know I promised to have the template/directions for the tea box up today and I will try and post it later, if not it will be up tomorrow. It seems one of my lovely kitties got my cord that I use to upload photo's from my camera to my computer and knocked it on the floor. Then my lovely puppy took it and chewed off the end---so....I have no way to upload everything until I get a new cord. But I've called Best Buy and they have it in stock, so off I go to get a new one...argghhhh...never ends, ya know!!
Have a great day! Hope you enjoyed the projects today!
