Halloween Tree

Hello!!  Have you missed me?  If you have, I have super good news.  I am BACK.  For real!  No, I'm serious this time.  I have been very busy creating many projects to share with you and you can expect to get many regular posts from me in the coming weeks.  So, where have I been?  Well, I was asked a few weeks ago if I would assist with a display board at my Stampin' Up! upline's Stamping Extravaganza that occurs the day before On Stage in Salt Lake City.  Of course, I was very honored and excited to be asked and have been putting every spare minute I have outside of my regular day job to get a stockpile of cards and projects to share.  So, the good news is, I have many to share in the coming weeks which also gives me time to get ahead of the game and have more to share in upcoming months as well.  So, today I actually am going backwards to last fall and something I created but never was able to share because I was offline preparing for surgery and completely out of the crafting loop.  The reason I am bringing it to share today is because the adorable stamp set and thinlits are still available!  So, along with this post today, I want to let you know there will be another post later this fall using these thinlits again....I am so excited to share it with you!  But for is the one for today.

Using the Home Sweet Home Thinlets (item #140279) I created this fun and spooky Halloween Tree.  Isn't it fun?  I found the tree at my local craft store and created all the little haunted houses to adorn it.  Some of the images were stamped using the Sweet Home photopolymer stamp set. (item #140936)  I can't say enough times, what a very fun set this is and I think you will get many, many fun projects that can completed using this.  It covers Halloween, Christmas and every day events.  How about a fun house warming treat box?  A birdhouse, a dog house...the ideas are endless.

I wish, however, I had shared this with you all last Autumn because there are a few stamped images that were made from a now retired stamp set.  However, you can easily see how combinations of paper, ribbon and creativity can give you very different effects.  

Stay tuned in a future post...this set will come back with a new twist!
