Hello! I hope that you are all having a good week! I had a nice day yesterday hanging out at The Ink Pad in Manhattan with Anna. You get to meet some really interesting people in a stamp store in the West Village! It was another beautiful day, the sun was shining and it was nice and warm! When I got home I had a sandwich with some ham, cheese and Salad Cream that I brought back from England, delicious! Then it was time for TV and bed!

Today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. The focus this month is Halloween! If you have arrived here from Raquelle Clifton welcome! She had some great projects, didn’t she?! I have two cards and a fun treat bag for you today so let’s get to it!

First up is a super simple card, probably the simplest card that I have ever made! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black. I used a piece of paper from the My Mind’s Eye Something Wicked 6×6 Paper Pad and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. A few Pretty Pink Posh Charcoal and Sparkling Clear Sequins and done! It’s not often that you can find a piece of pattered paper that doesn’t need anything else! Love the sparkly mustache and top hat on the skull too!

The second card has the same base and also a piece of Black covers the front. A simple piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb Card Stock is the background with a “Vintage” Paper Pumpkin stamp for the greeting. My candies are from the Exclusive Simon Says Stamp with Waffle Flower How We Roll Photopolymer Stamp Set. They are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Jellybean Ink and Stampin’ Up! Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin’ Ink with the outlines stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut them out with the Coordinating Die and adhered them to the card with SNAIL and Foam Tape. I love those brightly colored candies!

Last but not least is my treat bag! I used the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag Die and some Black 100lb Card Stock for the bag itself. Before I assembled it I cut out a circle from the front with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Dies and adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the inside. Some 1/4″ Score Tape is used to assemble the bag. My ghost is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics, he is form the Lawn Fawn Booyah! Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used the coordinating Lawn Fawn Booyah! Lawn Cuts to cut him, the bow tie and bag out. Some Foam Tape adheres him to the card and the bow tie to him, a little dab of Multi-Matte Medium adheres the bag. For the BOO I used the Lawn Fawn Owen’s ABC’s Photopolymer Stamp Set, stamped them in Tangerine Tango and cut the out with the Coordinating Dies. Some more Foam Tape adhered them to the treat bag. Fill it with some candy and you’re all set for your trick or treaters!

  1. Hi Justin:

    You gave us our Halloween treat early with these projects. I have to admit I’m not a fan of monsters, witches and zombies so that would explain my preference for the treat bag and the wrapped candy cards – especially the treat bag. I mean really, you can’t get any cuter than that and that candy stamp and die cut can be used in a gazillion ways! I just love it.

    Running errands today and the weather is just beautiful. Also, the fall foliage is really starting to show off around here. I saw a 6 point buck in my yard yesterday and almost fell down. Doe are there often but it is the first time in my life I’ve seen a buck with a rack. He was majestic. No I didn’t get a photo, I was too busy being mesmerized by his beauty plus I was afraid that by the time I got my camera out he would be gone.

    You have yourself a Terrific Thursday. I hope it’s as beautiful on Long Island as it is here today so you can really enjoy it. Love and hugs, XO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thanks! I did try and keep the scare factor to a minimum! LOL! The treat bag with that cute ghost is fun, especially with all of the Cadbury’s Heroes inside! The candies are neat and they can be used in a ton of different ways for sure!
      I enjoyed a ride in the convertible yesterday, the weather was beautiful! How nice that you get to see so much of nature where you are! Lucky!
      I had a good day and am looking forward to this weekend! You have a great Friday! XOXO 🙂

  2. It’s also a beautiful day here in Delaware. Just loving the warm days and cool evenings. I like all your creations today, especially the candy card. The treat bag is so special and looks as though you packed it to the brim. If it is for little Daniel, he is sure to be on sugar overload. So cute.

    1. The weather has been pretty perfect, let’s hope it stays like this for a while! Thank you! Yes, the treat bag is for Daniel, he does love some chocolate! 🙂

  3. Justin,
    You really ran the gamut today…. the first card is SO scary and the second so sweet… the bag is adorable. The scary one is my favorite. 🙂

  4. Great projects–LOVE the skull one!! I was a High School Biology Teacher in a previous life! You always have such fantastic, clean and simple projects! THanks for sharing!

  5. these are so cool! Love the skull, perfect, it looks alot more detailed. That treat bag die is fantastic. Just ordered some goodies from Reverse Confetti, I love new release time, my wish list grows

    1. Thank you Linda! The skull is great! I am liking the new release from Reverse Confetti too! Maybe next month’s class at Scrap-A-Latte! 🙂

  6. Love your projects! Skulls are not my thing but to me it makes a perfect guy Halloween card. I could see sending it to one of my sons. The treat bag is my favorite…I think he’s the cutest little ghost.

    1. Thanks so much Diane! The skull is just really cool and definitely a guy card! The ghost is definitely cute, especially his bow tie! 🙂
