Getting Ready for Halloween - Stampin' Up! Style!

So Halloween may not be a big celebration here but this year I am going to a Halloween Party so I thought I should have some Halloween Treats ready and when I found some cute wrapped chocolates I knew what I was going to do.

The cute bats stamped on these are from the Holiday Cheer Stamp Set and the wraps were punched with the Scallop Topper Tag Punch.

Then once I got going I decided to make a gift for the hostess too ... I hope she will like it!

This one features the digital version of the Color Me Autumn Papers and they are just as lovely digitally!

Stars for my Super Stars

This time last week I was enjoying a sunny walk around some of the sites Brussels has to offer, having spent a wonderful few days with some of my Stampin' Up! Super Stars at the European Convention.  We had an amazing time and I am looking forward to the next one already!  I took the chance to spoil those who were there a little and today I am going to share another of the little gifts I made for them - a star charm to go on their bags.
Stars for the Super Stars who attended Stampin' Up! Europe's Convention - check out this blog for details
I used some wooden stars as the base as I wanted these to be really robust and then decorated them using some of the beautiful Under The Tree Speciality Papers, some Vellum Card Stock and some Gold Glimmer Paper.  I added their initials using the Metro Type Alphabet and then finished them with some Gold Bakers Twine.  The shapes were cut and punched using 2 1/2 inch Circle Punch, the 1 3/8 Circle Punch, the Modern Label Punch, the Apothecary Accents Framelits and the Starburst Framelits
Stars for the Super Stars who attended Stampin' Up! Europe's Convention - check out this blog for details
I loved seeing these being used while we were there.  Many of the team were not able to be in Brussels with us so in a couple of weeks we are having a team mini convention to share some of the fun - it's going to be fantastic and if you would like to know more about this and how you can get involved please email bekka@feeling-crafty.co.uk

Just Because I love the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set!

I love the wonderful Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!  It is so versatile and so much fun to use.  I am really looking forward to featuring it at November's Card Making Class.  Each month we feature a different stamp set and try all sorts of different styles and technique with it.  I think the hardest thing for me for this class will be choosing which cards to make with it as I have so many ideas - and I do love a stamp set that keeps sparking new ideas as they are such good value for money.

So, as you may have guessed, today I am going to share a card which features one of the stamps from the set, combined with some gorgeous Beach House Washi Tape and a sponged background created using the Dotty Mask.  The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts.
