***You could WIN Your choice of one of these AWESOME stamp sets!!






Cool huh? OK, the Stampin’ Sisterhood has lots of creations to share with you, so grab a cuppa, sit back, relax and get HOPPIN’!! Be on the look out for our NEXT HOP coming NEXT MONTH!! We look forward to seeing you then for MORE sharing and prizes!! Thanks again for joining us today and ENJOY!!

I'm sharing three Halloween creations today -  made with brand new Halloween stamps from Rubbernecker!

The first is a card I made using a   Split Coast Sketch.  I turned the sketch on it's side to fit my spooky Halloween night background stamp image.

I cut the image in thirds and adhered it to the orange card base. I added some rhinestones and black glitter Thickers. I sponged all the edges with Spiced Marmalade ink.

This flying witch panel stamp is a brand new image from Rubbernecker, the Happy Boo to You Sentiment is from last years Halloween Set 2 #474.


The second is a Halloween Treat bag I made for the Ways To Use It Challenge over on Split Coast, to use a lunch sack.

I decorated the paper bag with some patterned paper, a drippy edge punch, and a Sizzix bat.

My monster named Squints is one of the new Halloween images from Rubbernecker. And Squints wants us to Share the Treats! I guess we'd better listen to this guy - he has 4 eyes so he'll certainly see if we don't!!

My third project is a little candy treat bowl -   made from a 6" x 6" piece of patterned paper.   Sue made one on Split Coast and gave these instructions.

Basically you score your 6"x6" piece of paper at 2" and 4" on both edges so it looks like a tic tac toe board - then you score diagonally on the corners so they fold in.  Punch holes on the inside pieces to tie your ribbon through. Sue says it's better to use a patterned paper as it's thinner than card stock and folds up more easily.

  Here are a couple of pictures showing the scoring and partial folding so you get the idea!


I stamped 4 different cats on white, punched them with a circle punch and layered them to a scallop circle.

I sponged the edges of the circles and added purple Tiny Twinkles to the eyes for a little glitter!
 I stamped the sentiment and punched it with the SU Keytag punch and tied it to the ribbon with bakers twine.

Each little section will nicely hold one or two of the miniature candy bars.

Now I hope you'll hop along to all of our DT members linked below to find more Fall/Halloween Inspiration - remember to leave comments along the way so you have a chance to win a free Rubbernecker stamp set!
