Here is a simple card that S&P the next generation made to sell for Charity this year. The girls and their friends did an awesome job making them. Now they just have to sell them. Wish them luck. They are donating all the money this year to KONY coins for kids!
Making this die 3D is easier then you might think. Cut a 1 x 4 inch strip, then score 3/4" on each side. You will need to use your bone folder to curve those 3/4" pieces to match the curve of the sleigh. Then I used the fine tip glue pen to adhere it. You will need to hold one side till it dries, then do the other.

We need to take a little break from Christmas for a bit and do a little Thanksgiving stamping. This is as simple as they come. Wrap your candy bar with some DSP, glue on a few leaves and add a thank you.
We do love the vintage look over here. These were so easy to make too. Cut triangles with that thick chipboard that comes in your glitter paper and other specialty paper, then glue your DSP on top. Add a little piece of glitter paper for a stump and embellish.

This tree is simpler than it looks. On the back is a 1/2 inch strip of brown that some of the pieces, then the rest are placed on top of those with glue dots. We put our tree on a little framed burlap bulletin boards and secured it with straight pins.
A lot of washi tape love here. Such a fun and easy technique. How long your words are, determine where you place it on the tree. Just use a paperclip to the top to hold it closed after you fold it down a bit.
Need a little vintage flair on your tree this year? Try these out. You will need 2, 12" x 2" strips of DSP for each Rosette. But first score your 12 x 12 DSP every 1/2". You can score two sheets at a time to speed things up. Now cut your DSP in 2" strips. Adhere two pieces together to form a circle. push down flat and use a hot glue gun to hold it together in the center. Add your embellishments and you are good to go. Don't forget to add your glitter to the edges.
Look how fun these accordion folded trees are. Make sure you score your DSP first at 1/2". You can score both sheets at once. Then just mark your sheets and cut. You can get several trees out of one sheet.
*added 11/15 We forgot to give you a little more info that can be quite helpful...Before you score the small and medium tree page, cut the bottom 4 inch section off with the two small trees on it because it needs to be scored the other direction:) sorry, hope you didn't already try that. Also, when you punch the holes through the center, START AT THE TOP, you can punch through a few folds at a time too. Have fun!

This is the last Halloween post, I've got to move on to Christmas, so I packed a bunch in. This little stamp set was a little intimidating to me, but once I got started it was pretty fun, especially the ones with movement. And yes, I did cut all those pieces out by hand, sometimes it's just worth it! Check out the video showing the movement of two of the cards.
The punch is awesome but... it can still be cute without it. Get out your Chalk marker for this project, you are gonna do a little coloring. I love how it stands out so well on the bags. Oh wait, I did use the punch for the bow ties:/

We have so many fun things to show you...I can't wait!
I wish you could see this in person. It is so FRIGHTFULLY CUTE!
It was really hard to get a good picture because we sprayed the glass with Looking Glass spray to give it a reflective spooky look. If I took the picture head on, my spooky refection would distract from the cute little guys hanging on there. I had to put up several white boards and take the picture at a certain angle to block everything out. You'll have to just trust me on how cool it looks. You can spray a little or a lot, depending on the look you want.
A little bit of drippiness and splotches add to the effect a lot. The glass I show below has a little more spray on it that the one above. I think it depends on the background you want to use too. I liked the more colorful and busy backgrounds with more spray and the more subtle brick with a lighter spray.
Now on to the cute part of the frame... Those little guys are pretty simple, stamp, aqua paint and punch. We had to add our own hat to the little scare crow.

More more little thing before I start posting all the Halloween things we have been making! These are so cute. I know its a Hostess set, but all you have to do is spend $150 to get it Free. That shouldn't be too hard, because as soon as I post all the cute stuff from the new Holiday Catalog... your wish list is going to explode!
