Today we are using a wonderful sentiment set called Say It Loud - Autumn/Winter.
And since today is also the September Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz in the forum where the theme is Halloween - I'm also sneaking in a little peek at Hocus Pocus - a set the DT will be previewing tomorrow.
For my preview - I made this spooky little Halloween Treat bag!
Say it Loud - Autumn/Winter and the wonderfully creepy fence is from Hocus Pocus. The gift bag is from CVS - I love the way the handle is attached in the middle of the front and back of the bag rather than the sides. The basket shred inside the bag is really a spooky purple - but it photographed blue.... : (
And here are 3 holiday cards I made using the Say It Loud Autumn/Winter sentiments.
I made them all 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and used basically the same design on each - all very CAS and easy to duplicate for your card sending needs!
One for Halloween - the raven is from Hocus Pocus, the cauldron and spider are from Claire's first year set, Halloween Party. I added rhinestones to the bubbling brew and to the spider and sponged the edges with Brushed Corduroy.
One for Thanksgiving - do you recognize our little witch Cicely from the last release?? I made her a pilgrim by not inking the point of her hat! The leaf is from one of Claire's first sets - Peace and Plenty. I made the row of dots with a strip embossing folder from Provo Craft and added rhinestones to the leaf, the sentiment and Cicely's front ruffles.
One for Christmas - this was also for Fridays Free 4 All Challenge over on Split Coast - to use mostly blue! I stamped the pine boughs from Festive Foliage with Tumbled Glass Ink and added some Dazzling Diamonds. I also put three rhinestones on the sentiment.
See how versatile this lovely sentiment set is??!!
Please check out all the Design Team blogs linked below for more inspiration using this super new set! Hope to see you back here tomorrow for Day #3 of the previews! It should be 'spook-tacular'!!
