SSS Special Edition Halloween Card Kit Blog Hop


Hello and welcome. I'm thrilled to be part of this blog hop celebrating Simon Says Stamp's Special Edition Halloween Card Kit...

ETA: The kit sold out very quickly! However, here is the link to the stamp set in the kit...
*Ghostly Greeting Stamp Set can be found HERE

Simon Says Stamp has awesome cards kit each month but this one is a special edition and not part of the regular subscription. I love that this kit includes non card making items as well!

I decided to use the brown bags in the kit to create some treat bags for Halloween...

I stamped the images on to THIS tag cut from THIS cardstock using THIS ink. I heat embossed them using clear embossing powder to make the images and create barriers when I added THESE watercolors. 


I added the googly eyes in the kit to the images for a playful look....
I cut strips of patterned paper from the kit to place behind the tag as well as THESE doilies. I attached the tag with a clothespin...

I also want to share a card example using the kit contents...

I applied THIS and THIS distress ink on to a piece of THIS cardstock and placed it behind a panel that I die-cut using THIS birch tree die. I sprayed some of THIS on top for some shine and added some of the enamel eyes behind the trees to give a spooky feel. I added watercolor to the images and finished off the card with a spider and sentiment that was cut from the patterned papers.

A closer look...

  48. Hi! my name is Marina. I love the backgound of your card, but my favorite project are those bags, which you've decorated so beautifully. I wasn't sure that the eyes could match those stamps, but now I see they go very well together! Besides, the idea of using those scraps of decorated paper is soooo clever! Warm regards,
