Team Tuesday

Welcome to a new segment I'm introducing to my blog!  Every Tuesday, I will feature a guest stamper from my 'Thinking of Inking' team.  Thanks to Becky Roberts over at Inking Idaho for the Team Tuesday idea! :)

Today the very talented Paula Stewart has made a scrapbook page using MDS. I'm super excited about this because I have yet to take the plunge into MDS so I love to look at the creations of others!

Here is what Paula has to say about her page:
"This scrapbook page was created using MDS2, if you don't have it already you can try it free for 30 days! Even better, from Oct 29th to Nov 5th there will be free downloads and 50% off all digital kits!The fun part of this project was actually searching for a fun Halloween-ish font to use. The font I used is called "You Murderer". Font names are so funny. One of my favorite features of MDS2 is re-colouring DSP. You can take any DSP and change the color with the click of your mouse. If the DSP is multicolored, you will end of with shades of the colour you choose. Like my background paper here, I re-colored to basic gray.  MDS2 is so easy to use, I hope you give it a try!"

Trick or Treat!

I'm busy, busy, busy today with the mega stamp sale Stampin' Up! is having (more details below) so this post will be super fast but I wanted you to have something pretty to look at!  And I'm also running out of time for Halloween posts.

This little gem is getting filled up with an assortment of candy and is headed, along with the coordinating card, to my oldest son's teacher.

The box is really my favourite and I went super overboard with products but it turned out so awesome...that I really, really don't want to give it away but the anti-hoarder in me says do it!!  I embossed directly onto the box and it worked perfect so don't be afraid to give that a try.  If you haven't gotten any of these awesome Kraft boxes, you definately need to!  And at only $3.50 for 4 of them, why wouldn't you? :)

Witches and Goblins and Spooks

Halloween is almost here and I haven't made nearly as many spooky and tricky projects as I had planned.  Which is especially inexcusable given the totally rockin' Halloween stamps we have this year in the Holiday catalogue and the Howlstooth and Scaringbone (makes me giggle everytime I hear that name!) paper.  So from now until Wednesday I will share things that are strictly spooky...or cute understand.

This card was somewhat stressful, I couldn't decide which DSP to put where!  But once I finally settled on that it came together pretty quickly.  I snipped off the prongs on the gold glimmer brad and attached it to the button with a glue dot.  Then attached the button to the ribbon.  My original plan here had been to go with a fancy bow but that was covering the words and we simply couldn't have that.

I gave it the full treatment with a decorated inside as well.  I've been dying to use that creepy little frog but couldn't make it work on the front of anything.
