I have two projects for you today. First up, Paper Bag Treat Box Die-namics and Paper Bag Peek-a-Boos Die-namics. This little treat box is adorable!! just like a paper bag! So my first one was made from Kraft card stock and I used the Jack o’ Lantern cut out. After I assembled the bag, I slipped a piece of acetate card stock down in side and stuffed in some orange tissue paper so it would show through the cut out. After that, it was a matter of simple embellishing. I cut a small tag using Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX and stamped a sentiment from LJD Primitive Pumpkins on it. I tied around some narrow black gingham ribbon and tied the tag on with an Orange Fizz button.
The second bag was cut from Black Licorice card stock with the spider web opening. After the bag was assembled, in addition to the acetate card stock, I added some vellum inside and put in a little battery operated votive candle. I tied around some orange baker’s twine and hung the sweet little spider from silver cord. He has orange gems for eyes, colored with Copic markers. This makes the most precious mini luminaria you ever saw! I just love it!
For my second project today, I decided to see how à la modes Bewitching would look as chalkboard art. I think she turned out rather cute, how about you? I stamped her with (squeeee!) new pigment ink from MFT this month! That’s right, we now will have Sweet Tooth Pigment ink and Whip Cream Pigment ink!! How cool is that?? I stamped her on Black Licorice card stock with the new Sweet Tooth Pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. It takes embossing powder like a dream! Then I doodled a bit and set it aside.
I wanted to make my own patterned paper so I got out more Black Licorice card stock and stamped LJD Darling Dots with Whip Cream Pigment ink. Next I stamped the chevrons from LJD Spring Backgrounds with Black Licorice ink on Orange Fizz card stock. Finally, I used LJD Distressed Diamonds and stamped them in Black Licorice and Orange Fizz ink on Primitive White card stock. I got out my Whip Cream Pigment ink again and stamped a dotted line from Die-namics Tag You’re It to make an argyle pattern. I didn’t worry about being too careful about inking up my stamps or stamping because I wanted a distressed look with all of them and I love how they turned out. You can bet I’ll be doing more of this! Here’s a close up of all three papers:
After my card base was assembled, I tied around some baker’s twine and an Orange Fizz button and popped the image up on foam. Here’s the inside with a sentiment from the set:
