Papertrey Tuesday

It's been another fantastic Papertrey Ink release! There are so many fantastic sets this month that it's impossible for me to say which is my favorite - so I won't! ;) But I will say that I think Tiny Treats: Halloween is just adorable! I'm sure you saw last week when the design team did their group post; my post today was what I did to play along with that challenge!

I started by cutting out Mat Stack 4 from Orange Zest cardstock. Fresh Snow is such a great ink that it looks fantastic on the orange, as well as the Plum Pudding. I used the new Gridlines Impression plate on the Plum Pudding piece, then started stamping the ghost image on every other square. I then used Simple Alphabet to create the boo! that is also there. (Cute stuff!)

For the background of this card, I pulled out Background Basics: Retro for the cardbase (I liked the way it mimicked the circles on the Mat Stack!).

The treat container is the small version of the Around Town Tote template. It's the perfect size to put a couple fun-sized candy bars into, or several Laffy Taffy. Whatever floats your ghost! (Yep, sorry about that, probably should have had a bad pun alert ahead of that one.)

Both the card and the little tote were finished off with a white pen, purple stickles and Plum Pudding twill. It's a fantastic look for the upcoming Trick or Treat season - perfect for lots of lil' goblins!

Be well!

Well this project certainly floats my ghosts Jenn! Love the color combo you chose. I don't know why I don't think of pairing Plum Pudding with Orange Zest!
