It’s a RemARKable Autumn


Trick or Treat!

Maui Stamper RemARKable Blog Tour handmade Halloween gift bagHalloween goodies – or a bag full of Creepy Crawlies?  I’m hoping for treats, not tricks.

Maui Stamper RemARKable Blog Tour handmade Halloween gift bagThe Halloween Bash stamp set has fun images to play with, and I thought these tickets were just the thing to add to the top of my tag.  They’ve got a little sparkle courtesy of Vanilla Smooch spritz.  And the hole for that gorgeous ribbon at the top is made with the small ticket punch – it makes a generous opening.  I’ve used the beautiful black and grey striped ribbon that’s available again as part of the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory kit.

Maui Stamper RemARKable Blog Tour handmade Halloween gift bagI stamped the main image once in Tangerine Tango, then again in Black Staz-on.  I cut out the word “CRAWLY” in black, snipped the ends, and added Basic Black card stock extensions to the ends.  The black rhinestone gems at the bottom are colored with the black Sharpie® marker that NEVER leaves my desk!

It’s a challenge for me to get in the mood for a true Autumn card, but I think the muse was working for this one:

Maui Stamper RemARKable Blog Tour handmade Autumn cardMagnificent Maple is a single stamp and it is truly a magnificent rendition of a leaf.  I’ve masked and stamped it in Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze and Old Olive. I chose Naturals Ivory card stock for the card base, but I used Very Vanilla for the tag – the Naturals papers have just enough texture to them that a bold image such as that tag doesn’t come out with enough definition to please me.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s Stamp-of-the-Month projects and I encourage you to take the full tour to see what everyone is sharing.  Robin is up next and I KNOW she’ll have a treat in store for you!  All the blogs on the tour are available below in case you want to re-visit a favorite or just take the tour in your own quirky way.  I encourage that kind of behavior 🙂
