A Holiday card and Halloween Treat bags :)

Good Morning Everyone,

Can you BELIEVE that it is almost the middle of September??? That means that Halloween and Christmas is right around the corner! Well today I made something for both Christmas and Halloween :)

Over at the Christmas Stamping All Year Long blog, Maria challenged us with a sketch challenge and I used the Boys Will be Boys stamp set and the sentiment from Season's Sweetings from Taylored Expressions. I realized that I haven't made any "manly man" cards yet for Christmas - and so it was fun to pull out this stamp set and create this card! Can't wait to make more :)
Card Details:
Paper: Martha Stewart
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Boys Will be Boys stamp set and the sentiment from Season's Sweetings from Taylored Expressions.
Accessories: eyelets and cropadile, spellbinders and ribbon from stash, circle butters from CM and scallop punch from SU!

Well, being in the holiday spirit from making this card, I made some fun treat bags for Halloween! I LOVE - I mean LOVE LOVE LOVE this cute little cupcake with the superman costume from the Trick or Sweet II stamp set from Taylored Expressions - seriously - how cute can a cupcake get???!! And I love all the costumes that the cupcakes are wearing - they are just too cute (here is the link to the first Trick or Sweet stamp set from last year) I think the hardest thing about decorating these treatbags was to refrain from eating the candies!

Here are my two quick little treatbags - it was such a cinch to make and can't wait to make more! I love these fun Halloween papers and ribbon that is in the Halloween Key Ingredients.

Here is a close up of these cute cupake superman stamps - I made two superman cupcake stamps - one strawberry and one chocolate :)

Project Details:
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Treat bags from Taylored Expressions, bling from Kaiser, copics

I had a lot of fun making these projects! Now that fall is in the air - I love making these holiday treats! (Do you guys have ideas for what you are going to be for Halloween?)

Hope your Monday is off to a great start!!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog :)
Big hugs
Sankari :)

I would have never thought to use ties on a Christmas card, but it really works for a man card!!! That's so great. And that cupcake superhero is ADORABLE!!!
