Halloween Hello

One of the current new release stamp sets from JustRite Papercrafts is this awesome Confetti Trio Background stamp set:

I'll have several cards coming where I've used this set, this first one has a little Halloween twist:

I stamped the background with a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad along the top, center and bottom of a 5&1/4" by 4" piece of white cardstock.  I filled in the gaps between the stripes with the 3/4" by 4" strips of Halloween patterned paper matted on 1" by 4" strips of orange paper.

The center panel was created using the JustRite Hello Decorative Oval Frames die set:

I used foam tape to build up the center panel, and added enamel dots to finish.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration using these great stamps and dies!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: JustRite Confetti Trio Background
Dies: JustRite Hello Decorative Oval Frames
Paper: AC black cardstock; GP white cardstock; Graphic 45 Rare Oddities 6x6 pad
Ink: Hero Arts Ombre-Butter to Orange
Embellishments:  Recollections enamel dots

JustRite Quiet Sympathy

One of the things I'm most impressed by with JustRite Stamps is the way they cover every holiday and occasion you could ever want.  And yes, sometimes that means a sympathy card.

I used a nature inspired color palette and the JustRite With Sentiments dies--I diecut the sentiment twice using cream and brown cardstock, then stacking the sentiments slightly off to five the shadowed effect.  This is where the Xyron sticker maker comes in handy!

To create the pine tree "windows" I used the JustRite Three in a Row dies, cut out with brown cardstock. I layered under the green strip, then I used the square dies to cut out the three cream colored squares, then stamped the pine tree using the Multi-Step Pine Trees

I added a couple of banners, a button and some twine as finishing touches.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop by the JustRite site to check out these fabulous stamps and dies! 

Supplies Used:
Paper:  AC cardstock cream, brown; Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice 6x6 paper pad
Stamps:  JustRite-CR-05044 Multi-Step Pine Trees
Dies:  JustRite-DIE-05070 With Sentiments, DIE-05033 Three in a Row
Ink:  Distress Ink: Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs
Embellishments:  Jute twine, button

Happy Haunting!

Today I'm sharing more spooky Halloween crafting....ya know I LOVE it!  Hope you do too and can get some inspiration to use these amazing Just Imagine Kreaxions Punches!

This gift bag was created using Square FR Lilly punch #924 and the gorgeous Julie Nutting Bootiful collection by Photoplay Paper.  The borders were created by using a combo of punching with and without the "A" guide.  Such a detailed punch, I added a layer of green patterned paper underneath to make it pop, and I added some enamel dots to the center of the diamond shapes for even more pizzazz....

Keep your eye out for the matching card coming soon to the blog!  You can find the blog HERE.

Time to hop along with some great designers with some amazing projects!  If you came here from Wendi's blog, then you are doing this right!  If not, make sure to go to Wendy's (that's indeed Wendy without the "i") blog and start from the beginning to get all the inspiration!  I've got a fun fall project for you of course....

Aren't these so cute?  I used the new Halloween collection from Carta love the designs on this one!

I used a wooden craft box made to alter, painted it up with black acrylic paint, then decorated it with the papers to create a book look.  They will be a fun part of my Halloween decor this year!

Here is a peek at the inside of both "books":

I used the sticker sheet to create a lot of the details....the Haunted collection has a great 12x12 sheet!

Here is the back view:

And finally the "spine" of the books:
