It's starting...

The official beginning of Fall is right around the corner, which means that the holiday season will also soon be here!  This time of year is my absolute FAVORITE time to stamp!  From the images and colors of the turning leaves through the bubbly toasts to welcome the New Year...this is the stuff that fuels the imagination and really speaks to the creative spirit within!  The colors and images are so fun to work with.  The only negative that I can think of is that I want it ALL!  ;)

Today I'm sharing a fun card and candy treat combo that features images recently released by Stephanie Barnard and the {stamps} of Life.  This set, spooky2scare, has the cutest images...just spooky and creepy enough without being too scary for young goblins!  Love the font for these sentiments!  To make the color match the designer paper and appear more translucent, some Versafine Imperial Purple ink was stamped off once before stamping the sentiments.

I colored the ghost faintly with a very pale lavender Copic marker, adding just a hint of sparkle with glitter from PK Glitz.  For the layout I used some gorgeous Heebie Jeebies designer paper from We R Memory Keepers, along with a MS spiderweb edge punch, more glitter, sheer ribbon, and a beautiful slightly spooky scroll-work "scrap stick" by Karen Foster.

The treat bottle is from Target...its colors are what inspired this entire project.  It only took a few minutes to make a tag and wrap the bottle with matching paper and a pretty bow, and it really came out cute!

Have a great Thursday!  I'm looking forward to another productive weekend of stamping!
