Waltzingmouse September Blog Hop

Welcome to another Waltzingmouse Stamps Waltz, this month the theme is Halloween.  I do not own a large supply of Halloween stamps (probably because I lived in New Zealand the last 5 years where they don't "do" Halloween like they do here in the US and therefore I haven't needed to make anything Halloween themed before?).  But now that I'm back in the US I better get on board right?  I got a little help from my son's set of Mrs. Grossman stickers.  I had a kraft bag from the local wine shop, so I covered up their wine label and recycled the bag (for the Do More With Less challenge) and made a cute little Halloween bag.  




And here's my son's card.  He LOVES comments, so please make sure you include a shout out for his creation, it'll make his day.

Materials: Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It Loud sentiments, Waltzingmouse Stamps Very Vintage Labels 4, Tim Holtz brick embossing folder, recycled kraft bag, black card stock, Core'dinations orange card stock, white gel pen, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 4, PTI Mega Mat Stack 1 die, Versafine black ink

Great Halloween treat bag. However, for scare factor your son's card wins hands down!! This is fantastic.

WOW! Your son's bag is amazingly scary. Love it. Those bats and the flying witch are very eerie. I like your idea of recycling your bag.

Is it son 1 or son 2? Either way his card is fabulous, and creepy, which is perfect for a Halloween card! And your bag is delightful I love how you've treated that sentiment.

Cathy Weber said...

Your treat bag is so cute and you were very resourceful repurposing a wine bag, but I am so jealous your son will make cards with you. His card is so wonderful, so scary looking! He must get his creativity from his mom, both projects get a thumbs up from me!
