Sweet Treat

I made this cutie using candy, raffia, and a low temp glue gun. The Pumpkin head candies are bought from the local dollar store. The smarties and tootsie rolls were a steal at Menards. Milk duds or Dots boxes both work. Enjoy!

Making Spirits Bright

Basic Black
Whisper White
Tangerine Tango
Daffodil Delight
Stazon Ink
1 3/4
Window Frames
Motley Monsters (use the stripe print cut at 3.5 x 4)
White and Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim
Fringe Scissors
Cut your black cardstock 10 x 3.5 using a corner rounder and round all corners.
Score at 2.5 and center your 1 3/4 circle in the 2.5 section and punch.

Cut 2 strips 1.25 x 3.5 score at 1 inch along the 3.5 length. this will be the guide to how far to cut in using your fringe scissors. Line the fridge strips one at a time along the bottom. I glued them in place and make sure to cover the area that isn't cut on the second row. After they are dry play with them to curl them a bit. I was CAREFUL not to rip them.
As you can tell we are working from the bottom up.
Next add you striped diagonal stripe paper covering again the solid uncut strip from the fringe section. Tie a bow above that stripe dsp using the Two Tone trim.
Now cut out the second size framelit 2.5 x 2.5 in daffodil delight. Stamp Bring on the BOOS, masking the martini glass so just the greeting gets stamped. Now cut the third size 3.25 x 3.25 in basic black. Pop the daffodil window on top of the black. Using a scrap piece of white stamp the Bring on the Boo's with the martini glass and color martini glass and cut out. Add that above the greeting. Now stamp Happy Halloween on a scrap piece of tangerine tango cut out using your scissors and cut into a banner. Pop up across the stem of the glass. I used Pear Pizazz for my martini and left the eyeball white but added red lines and a blue eyeball. I used daffodil for the curly olive pick.

These spooky blocks are a hit!! Here's how they were made.

Countdown to Halloween
Numbers are cut 2 inches tall using the SHADOW font in the Plantin Schoolbook Alphabet. Characters are made using the mini monsters Cricut cartridge 3 inches. Bats are punched with the Bat punch from stampin up. DSP is witches brew. I used  a 2x4 to cut the base 8 inches long. Blocks are cut using a 4x4 (which is really 3.50x3.50) cut at 3.50 inches. You will need several coats of modge podge to adhere paper, let each coat dry completely. ADORABLE!!!! Mini monsters can be cut in any color combination you like.
Numbers cut in pumpkin are 1-2-8-3-5-0-2 /2  inches
Numbers cut in black are 1-4-7-0-6 /2 inches
