We're Not a Pear, We're Pumpkins

Hello.  Welcome.  Happy Halloween to all you who celebrate and to those who don't WHY NOT????  I love Halloween and really can't understand why it can't be orange, green and purple all year round.  Today I have decided to shop my stash and go places rarely visited.  I started with my embellishment drawer.  Well really, look at all these stickers, brads, clip art thingys, patterned chipboards.  It's almost as bad as the patterned paper pile!!  Too pretty to use or 'gotta stamp  and colour my own else it isn't handmade' problem.  Well today I decided to see what I got and use a bit.  And despite what I said earlier, I'm starting with non-traditional halloween colours......

Happy pink Halloween.  I started with this cute little witch chipboard from MME Mischevious chipboard elements (circa 2011!)  I thought she was a little nontraditional being basically black on kraft with touches of orange and green.  Then I grabbed a scrap of Prima paper that was printed with text and roses!  I cut my tag using Sizzix #2 Tag dies and stamped the pumpkins using Inspired by Stamping Pumpkin Faces stamps onto two of the printed roses and fussy cut them.  Pink pumpkins?  Maybe next year..... wistful sigh!  The boo's, bootastic and bats are all Cheery Lynn diecuts and some pink and white wool to finish.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  4. How good of you to go visiting in places you have been for awhile inside your stash. I used to feel that using stickers or card toppers was cheating but I've finally figured out that handmade doesn't have to mean stamped every single time. I like your tag a lot!
