The Paper Players.....Boo To You


Happy Monday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card and little treat box that I made using the challenge this week at The Paper Players


I been itching to play with the new Fall Fest stamp set with matching framelits.
I have to admit, this set did not really strike my fancy when I first saw it and I have had it a bit and this is my first time using it. Why did I wait so long? I really think the pumpkins in this set are adorable!!
I did use some retired Halloween DSP on here, from the Houndstooth and Scaringbone pack. I just love the colors in that pack and the new Halloween paper is cute, and I will be using it soon but today I was just messing around and wanted to use up some of my enormous stash of retired papers.


The base of the card is Basic Black and then a layer of Basic Gray and then some of the DSP.
I die cut a large circle using Crushed Curry card stock and then sponged with Whisper White Craft ink.
The ghost is cut out with white card stock using a framelit and I stamped the faces using Memento Black ink.
I added some leaves and twine to the pumpkins. The bat is punched from Basic Black and I added some little red rhinestone for his eyes.
The sentiment is from the Good Greetings stamp set.

I made a matching little treat box and tag to go along with my card:


The pumpkins are stamped on whisper white with Pumpkin Pie ink and then cut out with the matching framelits. I then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze ink.
The tag is made with the white and top is punched with the scallop tag topper punch.
I added the tag to my bag of goodies using some of the tangerine tango two tone trim,
The box is a 2x2 inch square made with basic black and then embellished with basic gray and some more of the Houndstooth and Scaringbone DSP.

Well, that is all from me today, have a great week!!

Awesome Halloween card! I love the ghost peeking out from behind the pumpkins and using the Whisper White Craft ink on the Crushed Curry added just the right effect. It was a pleasure seeing your creation at The Paper Players.
