I am honoured and thrilled to have been asked to join the Simply Create Too Design Team, and I'm really looking forward to working with Diane and all the talented team over there. The challenge this time is to have a Halloween or Orange theme and I came up with one for each of these. For my first one I made a Halloween treat bag. I used a small sandwich bag that I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder
I used the Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 3 dies and used the larger one to cut a black mat. When I had cut the mat, I noticed that it had a kind of pearlescent woodgrain pattern on it, which was quite a surprise as I had used plain black card!
When I investigated, I realised that the the die had been used to cut some card that I had used Perfect Pearls on for another project ages ago, and it had retained the image - cool or what! Seems a pity that it is covered up for this project.
For the focal image, I used a stamp from Little Annie Designs Hallow's Eve Set, stamped in black permanent ink on some textured card, and I then used spiced marmalade and fired brick distress inks to colour the background.
A couple of spooky cookies in the bag and some black ribbon to tie it up, finished it off.
For my next project I made a square pumpkin card.
If you haven't discovered the Simply Create Too challenge yet, why not pop over and join us for some autumn fun.
