Monster Halloween with Your Next Stamp

Just sharing a cutie of a Halloween card which I made last year for Hobbyboden.dk.

I had been playing with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours for another card and this was my test-run. I was close to throwing this in the bin but then I got the idea to create a goofy green monster.


I have used a stamp set from Your Next Stamp to make my monster out of the green watercolour blob. 

By just adding a couple of arms, a mouth and a pair of googly eyes I have created a quite goofy looking Halloween monster. 

This idea can be used for almost everything. An apple, a pumpkin, a cocktail, a christmas ornament, anything.....

The sentiment is created by using a Lawn Fawn alphabet stamp set. This specific one is my top favorite for creating my own sentiments. 

In Denmark we don't really use Halloween cards yet, well not very much to say the least. I might get a chance to give one or two away and sell the same amount. But that's it. 

All I can say is that I still have faith in making cards, giving cards, sending cards and selling cards. Even though, the Danish postal system is determined to kill the wish to send cards 'cause of the extremely high postage. I for one refuse to be defeated!

You, Hey You.....*Hidden message*

I call this an interactive card 'cause the receiver of the card needs to do something to reveal the hidden message. 

So, what is hidden?


These "Rip Strips" dies from MFT are just so fun. They come in two lengths and of course your "hidden message" needs to fit. 

For this card I got to use some very, very old design paper. Soooo good to finally use a bit of it. Colour wise this card could go to both a man or woman. 


There is one risk making this kind of cards. Forgetting what the heck you stamped underneath! So what I do is right after stamping the hidden message, I also stamp it on a Post-It note. When the card is finished I add the Post-It to the back of the card. This way I can remember the full message on the card :)


Have a marvelous day, 
Pia

Halloween Treat Box from a Paper Cup

I love it, when I find alternative use of things. This is one of those times and also I find this a super fun way to make Halloween treats. 

I found this inspiration somewhere but honestly I cannot remember where. 

The first time I made these treat boxes the kids loooved them. I had 3 different kinds of treat wrappings but this one was absolutely the most popular. 

***

 What about you? Do you make Halloween treat wrappings?
