retired       Bitty Christmas tree punch  (for dogwood fence)  sponge edges



Start with stamping the sentiment and the fence. Then punch the top edge of the fence to make the dogwood look using the bitty christmas tree punch as shown in picture.

Punch the sentiment and layer together with Tombow.


Ink the edges of the moon and the fence.

Fussy cut the pumpkins out and punch out 2 cats out of the black cs scraps.


Emboss the black cs from the front of the card.  I put arrows on my embossing to remind my classes that the embossing folder goes into the big shot like so...


I placed dimensionals on the back of the fence and the heads of each cat and the bottom of one cat.

Glue the moon to the black CS and then to the card base.  Attach the cats one at a time.


Stamp the inside of the card and the envelope.  Glue inside of card  in place.  Attach the pumpkins and front sentiment with tombow.


Stamp lines in Pumpkin Pie and Happy Halloween in Black Memento ink.

My completed card...... I did place a rhinestone on the top to represent the North Star..... 


Here is the same card in Island Indigo.



      Now the 3D project......


               I found these awesome Gummy body parts at Dollar General!  I didn't even know what I was going to make with them, but , I knew that I was going to make something!

Here are the supplies I used for this project.

144628     Acetate card boxes ( I cut them in half )

144125     Foil Frenzy DSP ( 2 7/8 X  10 scored at 2 1/2, 3, 7 1/4 &  7 3/4 )

retired      Spider webs ( Cut in half )

145372     2nd largest Stitched Oval  ( In silver foil 2 X 3 )

141706     Layering Ovals  ( Cut in W. White CS 100730   2 X 3 )

144678     Swirly Snowflake thinlits ( Swirly cut in Black )

141491      Classic Label Punch ( Punched in Pumpkin Pie )

144960     Festive Phrases  ( Stamp on W. White scrap in P.Pie ink 126945 )

Retired     Banner punch

132708     Memento Black ink


         How many of you still have some of the retired spider webs to use up.... LOL, me too.   I figured this was agreat way to use some of them up.

Tip.... When cutting the Acetate Boxes, Cut the side that is the thickest side first, then it is smooth sailing....

Cut boxes in half at 2 7/8

Fold score lines on DSP and simply place it in the box. The paper will be long enough to have a small overlap.

Cut Spider web in Half and place a couple dabs of  Tombow on it and place it on your DSP.

Stamp the  "Pick your Potion" stamp  in Black and 1 in Pumpkin Pie.

Fussy cut the P.Pie "Pick your Potion" out and use banner punch on the ends. Cut out black one using Layering oval dies. Adhere to silver oval.

Punch out Classic Label punch in P. Pie and layer it behind The Word Potion.  Adhere to Layering Ovals with Mini Dimensionals.

Cut out swirly in black and adhere to lid of Kettle with a dab of  Tombow.

Adhere Ovals to Front of box with Mini Dimensionals.

Fill with candy and SHARE!!!!!!!

Here is another design I will be making for my up coming Craft fairs....


I used the retired Spider Web embossing folder on this one,  along with the "Spooky Cat" stamp set              ( 144749 ) and the Everyday Label Punch ( 144668 ).

I hope you enjoyed my projects!

Until next post....Crafting Hug
