Twilight: New Moon - Halloween Treats

Okay, so my kids love Twilight and asked that their treats match their costumes - Edward Cullen and Jane Volturi. How can you resist a request like that? So, Walgreens carries Twilight candy in the Halloween section and I put them in candy baggies and made little toppers. Bags are 3x4 so toppers are cut at 3.25x3.75. I used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch then folded in half and added a silver strip that was 1.5x3 inches. I used Jet Black Staz-On and the images are from Artful Inkables Twilight-inspired rubber stamps. Jacob's is a paw with Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Bella's is My Vampire can beat your Werewolf any day. Edward's is Vampire's Rule, Werewolves Drool. Easy-peasy! Aren't they just too cute? Thanks for looking!

Christmas Cards

Here are the Christmas cards from Amy's stamp class. I just love them both. One is using the Sizzix Big Shot to cut the card and the ornament all at the same time. Super neat! Colors are Bashful Blue, Real Red, Old Olive, and More Mustard and uses the new Ornament tag set from SU!. The background of the card was used with Versamark. We also used the stretchy silver chord for the hangers and SU's rub ons. She also had us use a three flower punch to punch out the snowflake image and raise it on dimensionals. So cute! (Sorry for the wonky turn on the image...won't let me flip it for some silly reason and I am too tired to fight it)

The other card was using some of the new designer paper in Soft Suede. Other colors are Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, and Brocade Blue. The snowflake on the scallop circle was supposed to have a pearl on it, but we misplaced them...bummer, but it doesn't detract too much. I would have never picked these colors for a Christmas card, but how cute is it?!?! Both are standard A2 size and will fit in a basic envelope. Thanks for looking!
