My Creative Time ~ September Stamp Release : BLOG HOP!!

Hello everyone!  What a great two days of Sneak Peeks - don't ya think?!?!  Well now it's time for my favorite part . . . the BLOG HOP!!!  You should have arrived here from the super talented Amy's blog.  If not, then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You definitely don't want to miss a thing!

For my project today, I am featuring the brand new and super fun Just Tags.  Now even though I think these tags are going to be absolutely PERFECT for Christmas presents this year, I decided to try them out for Halloween.  Hope you like it!  


What do ya think of my little ghosties????  I just LOVE them!!! These tag dies are just AWESOME!!!  You are sooo going to love them!!!  There are two dies in this set for perfect layering every time!  And the top layer has Emma's beautiful signature stitching!!!  Love it!!

Ok, here are the details for my project.  The fun cupcake holders are cut from the Cupcake Wrappers ~ Cricut Cartridge and the black cardstock is from Recollections.  The ghosts are cut with the brand new My Creative Time ~ Just Tags.  Both the grey and the white cardstock are from Recollections and all of the different colored background layers are from the Coredinations ~ Vintage Collection.  The twine for their cute little bows is from The Twinery.

Here are some close up shots:


These spooky little eyes are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ The Uglies face assortment.  For all these fun faces, I colored them in with Prismacolor ~ Pencils and blended with Odorless Mineral Spirits.  And then for all of the eyes, I added Glossy Accents and then popped them up with pop dots for some fun dimension.  


This face is also from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ The Uglies face assortment.  Do you like how I gave him bloodshot eyes?  LOL


This face is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Make A Monster face assortment.  I just love using the pop dots for dimension...totally makes the eyes pop a little.



Both of these eyes are once again from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ The Uglies face assortment.


Sorry about this dumb photo, but you will get a kick out the story.  Before I tell you that though, this cute little face is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Monster Mash face assortment.  

Ok, now for the story.  So I'm sitting here writing up my post and adding my photos, when all of a sudden I realize I forgot to take a photo of my favorite one (the little lady above).  Of course I scream out (a word I won't repeat here)...lol...and my husband comes running in..."What's the mater????"  So I tell him what happened, he looks at me, I look at him and then together we burst out laughing.  Why you ask???  Because we both just polished off every single one of those yummy cupcakes!!!!  So I didn't have one left to go and take the photo!!!!  OMGeee!!!  Not only that, but right about now I am typing like a maniac from the extreme sugar rush!!!  LOL


Well my creative friends, I hope you like my little Halloween treats!  These new tag dies are a MUST HAVE so get your orders in quick!!!

The cupcake tags are way too cute! Thanks for giving a different idea as to how to use these tag dies!

Glora said...

These are SO cute as little ghosts. So did you find your The Uglies stamps or did you order them and get them in time? So curious now. I love that 3 eyed one too. How funny that you guys ate all of them before you realized you didn't have her INDIVIDUAL shot. Oh well she still looks ADORABLE in the group. I just love how you colored and blended each one. They are PERFECT! I bet that they tasted good too - LOL. Hugs- Glora
