Not so scary...

I love Halloween...I love the colours.  When I saw these stamp images from Impression Obsession, I knew I really wanted them and ordered them right away.  The first is a card I made with the candy corn skewered Halloweeni Martini.  I chose to create a really basic and plain layout, but I like how it works with the papers.  The papers (striped and spider webs) were purchased last year from Making Memories, after Halloween and on sale at Target.  I also bought some brads at the same time that are the same line, see the little bat brad at the bottom of the martini glass?  I stamped the image on an ivory cs in craft ink and clear embossed.  I then coloured with Copic markers and covered the whole image with a crystal effects type product and let dry overnight.  I used a scalloped rectangular Nestability to cut the image out and sponged the edges with TT ink.  The orange spotted dp is from PaperTrey Ink from the Hocus Pocus pack (love it!) The image is from the SU set Eat, Drink & be Merry.
The next photos show a little chocolate book that I will be making quite a few of in different variations.  I love making these for Halloween and Christmas and literally make 100's of them.  People really seem to like receiving them, after all, who doesn't like a little chocolate now and then!  The cupcake image is also an Impression Obsession image and I coloured with Copics and cut out the "muffin top" part.  The cupcake liner was stamped directly on the PTI dp and cut out.

Hope you like them and have a great Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by,
