October Fun Swaps

Here's my ghost that came home with me. He used to live in the basket below. He's a candy holder.
These ghosts are the CUTEST!! Maya tucked them into a basket she made, too. Love their google eyes! We all got to take a ghost home with us.
I swapped this tag with the group using the Holiday Collection stamps (Country Living Kit) I just received - I love this kit! The snowflake and "Peace" are using 2 way glue wityh Dazzling Diamonds. The photo doesn't show the Round Tab Punch for the hanger loop. Edges are sponged with white craft ink. More photos later of other tags made.
Mary is so generous! We made this waterfall card with a Xmas theme. Isn't it great?

This Xmas card is from Teri. The fine line of glitter doesn't show up well at all in the photo. It is on top/bottom of the striped designer Paper (Holiday Treasures) and the swirls in the tree (which are on dimensionals) - Love this!
Sharon shared this matchbook style tea bag holder with us. Finsihed size is 2-3/4 x 3-1/4. Perfect size to tuck into a purse.
Sonja shared this glitter techinique (and several others). This one is using Versamark, heat & stick with Chunky Glitter on chipboard. It really looks great! Maybe Sonja will post her other techniques soon on her blog. Stay tuned on her blog - see link: The Art & Craft of Sonja Shin at http://www.creative-sonja.blogspot.com/
This great card was from Maya. It uses the Ski Slope Designer Paper. A great idea shared: attach back of grosgrain ribbon with stickey tape - ta dah: no fraying at thge ends! Brillant! The red glitter was applied with 2 way glue pen - it took 3 passes to get it covered almost 100% .
Mary shared this cute little Thanksgiving surprise made from punches with the group. So Cute! The finished size is 2-1/2 x 2-1/2. She reminded us the instructions are on Stampin Success Oct. Page 9.
Aren't these all great swaps?
