A Wicked Good Stamp Club

Last night my group got together for our October Hostess Club. It was a much needed, fun night for me...with everything that has been going on here lately. Michelle, our hostess for the evening, brought some hot spiced cider spiked with Buttershots Schnapps and some other delicious goodies. With a few mugs full of that cider and such good company I was definitely cheered up! On to the projects we made...

This card is cute from the outside, but it's the inside that makes it really spectacular spooktacular!
Stamps: House of Haunts, Batty for You, Canvas background & Haunting Jumbo Wheel
Card stock: Glossy White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum & Ghostly Greetings DP
Ink: Black Stazon, Pumpkin Pie, various inks for sponging
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon, Scallop, 1-3/8", 1-1/4" & 1" circle punches, coluzzle
Techniques: Sponging, Masking, Spiral Pop Up Card. (I found the complete instructions on how to make this type of card on SCS. )

Continuing on with our Halloween theme, we also altered some tins that I had picked up a while back at Michael's. We used the Ghostly Greetings Double-sided Designer Papers along with House of Haunts & Batty for You stamp sets.

We filled them with a mixture of candy corn & peanut M&M's and for an added surprise... a big black spider on top of the candy.

After finishing the candy, you'll see the stamped greeting on the bottom.

Along with these Halloween projects, we also made the Crazy For Cupcakes card shown in my last post.

On another note, I was excited to hear that a card I sent to Stampin' Up! for a monthly contest made it to Stampers Showcase yesterday. That is pretty cool! (not as cool as actually winning the contest...but still pretty cool!;-)You may remember this card that I recently made for a card swap...that's the card that was on Stampers Showcase.

Blog hop on over to my friend Denise's blog - Stampin With Denise...she is giving away some fabulous blog candy to celebrate her 1 year blogaversary.

Thanks for stopping by...have a wicked good weekend!
