Maui Stampers Brainstorming Goes Batty

The Maui Stampers met Friday morning for our monthly team meeting (wouldn’t you love to be one of us?  You can, you know – email me!).  We mostly gab and stamp and then at the end we try to eat healthy stuff because we’re all watching our girlish figures.  Crystal brought Isaac – she was only going to drop off some stuff and run home but we persuaded her to stay.  I had a senior photo moment and didn’t take one picture of him, but he was very happy sitting next to Auntie Kellie.

We were playing with Halloween stuff (most of it was Robbie’s, and she had to work)  and came up with a concept that we thought needed work but had great potential.  I have faith in all of you and your creative abilities so take a look and then leave a comment on how to spiff this baby up:

The Candy Wrapper gone Bats

  • Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black card stock
  • Early Espresso Classic ink pad
  • Big Shot and Candy Wrapper Bigz L die; small oval punch
  • Stampin’ Sponges, Window Sheets and Tombo the Wonder Adhesive

We punched out the bats and used the negative image as a template to sponge bats all over the cardstock.  We tried adding ribbon to the ends but it didn’t work for us.  To make the bat stand up, we punched a small oval from a window sheet and cut it in a spiral to make something that spproximated a spring.   The oval worked best because of the shape of the bat.

We all think it needs more/another color – some white somewhere to catch your eye?  Can’t wait to hear what you think.
