Happy Halloween 42

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, August 26, 2010 @ 1:12 PM | , , , ,

Hi There Blogging Friends! Here today to share a few projects I made featuring a few darling Vintage images from Crafty Secrets. Over at Splitcoaststampers, there is a weekly Crafty Secrets challenge of sorts, that challenges us stampers to use our Crafty Secrets products. I made this card for this week's challenge - "Stuck on Crafty Secrets" which is to use a sticker or create your own. I don't own any Crafty Secrets stickers so I trimmed an image, then adhered it using double sided tape. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Card Patterns Sketch 78. To make the tag, I used the Spellbinders™ S4-081 Tags Five die template to cut/emboss the tag then inked up a Happy Halloween sentiment from the Waltzingmouse Midnight Feast set.

Next up, is this lil' treat bag that I made using the FREE Waltzingmouse Tea Bag Baggie template. I made this for last week's Crafty Secrets challenge was "Brown Bagging It" which is to incorporate a brown bag with your Crafty Secrets goodies. To give the bag a faux leather look, I followed the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. Super easy & such a neat result! Speaking of faux, this month's Dirty Dozen challenge theme is "Fabulous in Faux"- maybe you would like to create using any fake technique! :)

To make the little tag I, inked up an images from the Waltzingmouse Halloween Party & Very Vintage Labels No. 4 sets then cut/embossed using the Spellbinders™ S4-190 Labels Four die template that fits perfectly!

That's all for today. Thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet :)
