It's that time again! Time for another delightfully fun Blog Hop with the Magnolia-licious Design Team. This month our theme is Fall or Halloween! If you have just come over from Mindy's blog then you're headed in the right direction. If not, then please go to Angie's blog to start at the beginning. From here you will go to Suzanne's blog to continue the hop fun!
I only have two Halloween images! That's pretty pitiful! I used Tilda with a Pumpkin and the Bat which are available at Magnolia-licious.
Diana has had them on re-order and hopefully they will be in stock soon! My dear friend and fellow DT member, Sharon Caudle, sent me the spider image, so I could use it on the Spider Web Acetate I used to make my Treat Box with. Thank you so much Sharon for helping me out in a pinch.
Before I go much further, let me tell you that my card and treat box, full of Candy Corn, will be given away to one lucky person who comments on this post. I don't know how you use Random.org so my hubby is going to pick a number from the list of commenters and that lucky number will win the prize. I will pick a winner on Friday, September 24th and announce the winner then. So please check back with me to see if you're a winner...
So without further ado, here is my project for the hop...
I really had fun designing this set! I will give a card recipe at the end of this post if your interested in what I used to create it with.
Here is a look at the card all by itself...
I paper pieced Tilda dress using some dp I had on hand from last year. The paper is from Basic Grey and is double sided. I loved the polk a dot side so much for the dress but I had to figure out a way to stamp it in something other than black which wouldn's show up on the paper. So I used Encore Silver Metalic ink which I've had for years. It was still juicy, believe it or not.
Here is a closer view of Tilda so you can see the Silver ink...
I used multiple punches and dies to get all the fancy work done. Those are listed below also.
Here is the inside of the card...
The pumpkins are a digital image from our very own Maureen Kuppe, who is a fabulous artist. I'm sure you've seen some of her awesome work already on her blog. I thought these three pumpkis were so complimentary with my card, and added that pop of orange to accent my matting. Notice the little spider coming down out of the corner punched web...

Now for the treat box...
I used the directions for an Acetate Box which you can find here. I had found the acetate sheet at my local scrap booking store and just knew what I wanted to do with it. The spiders were stamped using Stazon Black ink and the Bats were colored with copics and added with glue dots then stamped again on black and added to the inside.
The little Happy Halloween stamp is from a G Studio set which I picked up also at my local scrap booking store. I got 12 months in a set for just $5.
Well it's time to hop on over to Suzanne's blog. Hope you'll enjoy seeing all the marvelous creations everyone has made and that you'll jump right in a design something to share with us all.
