Frightfully Delightful

Hey Friends!! Hope you're kickin' your week off in a great way!
Halloween can certainly be frightful for some! Don't you think? But...when it's "Frightfully Delightful, Halloween takes on a whole new meaning!
Frightfully Delightful Candy Box
Frightfully Delightful Dracula Candy Box
This is my idea of "Frightfully Delightful" made with the new Buncha Scraps "Boo Crew" Paper Collection ...

... and stamped with High Hopes Stamps new release "Vampire Treat" with the sentiment "Frightfully Delightful" .

This adorable little Vampire is hidden, just as he is in his little coffin, tucked away under the cover of this Halloween candy box.
This would make a great gift box for your favorite little Frightfully Delightful Trick or Treaters this Halloween Season. You can find the template for this box on Jamie Lane's blogBits of Paper!
These are the colorful papers I used from my Boo Crew Collection:

Scary Kitty

Scary Kitty? Hardly! This adorable image is one of my new images for High Hopes Stamps new release "Joys of the Seasons" called... what else?..."Scary Kitty".

Scary Kitty & Boo Crew Background Papers
Halloween is never really scary here at Buncha Scraps.
I used our new "Boo Crew" collection background papers Halloween Stars & Swirls in black for the 5x7 card & the coordinating envelope.

Boo Crew Stars & Swirls Envelopes
There are so many advantages to using digital art for your paper crafting projects, but one my favorites is being able to size my papers up and down to fit my projects. I created this envelope using We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. For my Canadian friends, OneCrazyStamper.com carries the Envelope Punch Board also. This little gadget makes it super easy to make your own designer envelopes to coordinate with your handcrafted cards. I LOVE it!

For the embellishments, I used YNS Black Gumdrops for the centers of the paper flowers that I punched out from the "Orange Black Spot Dot" paper, and on the Scary Kitty Image. I also used Halloween Orange & Black Polka Dot Ribbon and added a white scroll border that I punched with my EK Success Border Punch.
The Boo Crew is available now for immediate download at BunchaScraps. There are so many possibilities and way too much fun! So be sure to create lots of memories, because, every moment is a gift!

Freezin Season

Freezin' Season.....Ok, so this is a post of wishful thinking!
I thought when I moved from Florida, last year, that I would hate the cold weather, but actually I LOVE it, I hope for it, and I can't wait for it! This sweet little card brought me to my Freezin' Season state of mind!

Card Instructions:
I used one of my new designs for High Hopes Rubber Stamps new release "Joys of the Seasons" called "Lil Snowbird"


I used several mediums to color this image:
Watercolors (my staple)
Spectrum Noir Markers CG2 (Mittens Skirt & Holly) & DR3 (Pink Shadows)
Copic Markers RV02 (Jacket, Ribbon & Bow), BG000 & RV000 (used to stipple the background)
The background papers are from my BunchaScraps Digital Collection that I am working on
for my winter release coming soon. They are Pink Frost Harlequin, Blue Frost Polka Dots, Pink Frost Polka Dots, Ice Green Linen and Ice Blue Snowflake.
I distressed the papers, using  Tim Holtz Paper Distesser, to give a snowy feel to them.
I love this little gadget! It doesn't cost very much at all, and it gives great results.
I used the High Hopes Stamps sentiment, "Freezin Season", from the same "Joys of the Seasons" release and stamped it with Color Box Pink The color matched my image so well, and I just happened to have that color on hand...love it when a plan comes together!
Finishing Touches:
I punched some snowflakes out of white cardstock and topped them off with pink Stickles  Glam Pink glitter glue, attached a vibrant pink ribbon (also a great color match that I just happen to have in my stash!) and added a piece of white fun fibers...just for fun :)
And finally...I used White Sugar YNS Gumdrops because I didn't have any gumdrops that matched my pinks in my image, but.... no worries.... I colored them with my Spectrum Noir PP5 Marker and it worked out just fine! But, if you don't have either of those or just don't want to color your own gumdrops,  One Crazy Stamper carries  the YNS Gumdrops - Mermaid Fun. The pink gumdrop in that set is what I was actually going for.... I will have to get me some!
Head on over to High Hopes Stamps Blog and join the September Challenge
FYI: I'm going to be giving away the Lil Snowbird Stamp for FREE very soon, so stay connected and I will give the details shortly!
Hope you enjoyed a little "Freezin' Season" with me!
