I received a fun package in the mail today from All That Scraps with bunches of new stamps to play with, Thanks Christine! I can't wait to create with your stamps!
After oogling them for a bit, and organizing all the unmounted stamps into transparency sheets, I just had to play! I love this ghosty image, and all of the cute images in the Halloween Set. Being Boo'd around here is a Halloween rite of passage, so my first thought with this fun image was to make a Boo'd set. The bag is a "genie bag," a covered white lunch bag. I stamped the ghost and boo images randomly over the entire pumpkin sheet, rounded the corners, punched a handle with the Word Window punch and adhered it to the front on the lunch bag. The "BOo'd" decorative layer was made using the Cuttlebug and Red Tag Alpha die for the main sentiment and stamping "You've been" with SU!'s Simple Serif Alpha (wishing it had an apostrophe!), layered onto pumpkin and black card stock, I set 4 green mini brads into each corner, and finally added a decorative strip of American Crafts Halloween Stripe patterned paper. The striped bow finishes off this layer. The bag is held closed with a circle of patterned paper secured with a black circle clip tied with ribbon.
A matching card completes this set.
