Monster Treat Bags

Greetings! I have a fun Halloween project today for Stampendous' 31 Days of Halloween. I was inspired by the Little Monsters stamp set, and thought they would look adorable on little treat bags.

I have a bunch of these little paper bags from Whisker Graphics. Since they are food safe, they are perfect for this quick project. I just stamped a few of the Little Monsters images on to each of the bags with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne and colored them all in with PITT pencils from Faber Castell.

The PITT pencils blend so nicely, that I was able to go for wild color choices and they still came out looking great! The pencils are nice and soft too, so I don't hurt my hands when I use them like I often do with regular colored pencils.

I love the polka dot bag! I thought that the eyeball balloon was perfect to coordinate with it.

I think it took me about 20 minutes to make both of these bags from start to finish. Nice and quick! Do you make treat bags for the kids of your neighborhood? Perhaps just for your own, or a few special children? I tend to only do something for my own kids, but these bags are so cute I may make a few more. Don't forget to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what other bloggers have created a spooktacular project today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…
