Birthday/Gift Card Holder

Hello,  Hope your are all enjoying a nice Fall season and managing to stay healthy.  We have been extremely busy with Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, and basketball games.  But I have finally found some time to add this card that I made for my bestest friend Lisa (Hi! Lisa, hehehe)  It was very simple to make.  I used Stampin Up's Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set.  Stamped it with Momento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Prisma Pencils and OMS.  I used Sukura Glitter Pens to add some glitter to the frosting and the cherry.  I inked all the edges with Basic Brown ink from SU.  Very easy peasy. :)   Thanks for looking. Enjoy your day.

Halloween Treats

Hello,  hope everyone had a great Halloween.  I made these chocolate suckers and spiders for my kids to take to school with them.  They were very easy to make.  I used the Candy Melts from Wilton.  I melted the candy in plastic squeeze bottles and used Halloween Molds that I got at Michael's.  I had to make 62 for the kids to take to school.  But I got so into making them that I made way to many so the kids were able to give some to other teachers that they have.  I made the spiders for their main teachers.  But they needed to be put in something so I made 6 of the boxes.  Dawn's Stampin Studio is where I found the idea for the boxes.  She has great how to video's. :)  You can get 2 boxes out of one sheet of 81/2 x 11 piece of card stock.  I stamped the top of the box with spiders in Versamark ink.  Wrapped the ribbon around the top added the "Happy Halloween" and popped it up.  I die cut the spider and popped him up but he was missing something so decided to add the googlie eye's now he looks cute.  I lined the bottom of the box with wax paper to keep the bottom "clean".  The boxes were really easy to make and didn't take any time at all.  Enjoy your first day of November, can't believe there are only 2 months left of 2011.  It sure went fast.  Thanks for looking.
