Halloween using the "Purse Die"

Hi Stampers!
These ADORABLE little Halloween treat bags were cased from our SU magazine...when I saw them, I KNEW I had to try to make them!  And guess what?  Not hard at all!  The pumpkin was fun through the stripe dry emboss folder after I cut it out with the purse die.  For Frankie's hair, I placed a piece of blk. cs over that part of the die and adhered over the purse, then cut out through both layers with zig-zags to create the hair.  Bat's wings are punched circles that I cut in half and used the small circle punch to create the scallops.  
I think these would be great to sell at a craft fair or give to special trick-or-treaters with candy inside!

Cards we are making at the Make & Take

Hello Stampers!  I promised I'd show the cards we are making this weekend--so here they are!   The "Merry" card is made using the triple layer technique.  It's the first one I've made using it, and I have to say I am in LOVE with the technique!  Ooohhh, the possibilities!  To make it, you place all 3 of the neutral cs centered on top of each other and then stamp.  The darker cs is then placed behind them and is really gives a dimensional look!
The Birthday card uses the new Doily die and Chevron embossing folder.
Of course, we are doing a Halloween card-complete with googly eyes!  Then my all time fave is one that I cased from a swap I got at Convention and changed it a bit.  The butterfly is 3 layers deep and looks very NEAT in person!

Thanks for stopping by!
