A very Happy Friday everyone!! And WELCOME to the Tricks and Treats Halloween/Fall Blog Hop at Magnolia-licious!! Each of the DT members has made a card using a Fall/Halloween Maggie and a treat holder using the Scor-Pal. A number of projects can be found at the Scor-Pal projects list site and on SCS. I certainly hope that you will join with us and create a card and a treat holder to be eligible for a $10 GC to Diana's store!!! What fun!! Today's Hop begins with the very talented Cheryl Rowley so if you have not started at the beginning, please go visit Cheryl for your roadmap! After you have visited each of the DT blogs then please continue on to the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog where you will find all instructions for participating!
I used TEN MAGGIES!!!!! Diana, that must be almost the full Halloween inventory...lolol...They are: Tilda with Spider, Tilda with Spider Web, Spider Web, Halloween Edwin, Log, Tilda with Pumpkin, Halloween Pumpkins, and Halloween Candy Bag, all from the Halloween and Autumn Collection 2008; Tilda's Cat from the Summer Collection 2007; and Iron Fence from the Fall Collection 2007. As you can see by the links, most of these stamps are available or will be available soon at Magnolia-licious. Because these stamps are going so quickly and since Halloween is right upon us, I urge you to jump over to Diana's shop and get them FAST, FAST, FAST!!!
As you can tell, this is a tri-shutter card and it's the first time that I have ever attempted one of these...and it may be the last...lol...I changed the size from the instructions given on SCS and made it 6" tall...I also didn't like it with a plain back so I also decorated the back so that it would be of interest with either side showing. I really don't know where to begin except that I started with Bazzill CS for the base and all of the DP is from the Frightful Collection of Little Yellow Bicycle. I stamped and colored all of the Maggies with Copics and a touch of Spica and cut them all out. I embossed the large spider web on the back and the web on the front Tilda's hat. The web behind Edwin is actually a wide organza ribbon embossed with velvet spider web and spiders. I added a few little puffy bats from Diana, flowers from Crafty Feeling, miscellaneous charms (pumpkin, spooky eyes, ghost, witch's hat), some spider buttons, and some twigs made with a MS punch. The sentiment on the back is a Cotton Scrap. Oh and a few ribbons and gem brads and dew drops...And whewwww, I believe that's about it...lolol
And now for my matching Treat Holders which uses the Scor-Pal and Scor-Tape:
As you can see, I used the same papers as my card. The larger box is the Ferro Rocher Chocolate Box and is filled with 6 pieces of Ferrero Rondnoir. The bag-like thing is the Batty Boo Basket and is filled with M&Ms. The 2 little boxes are Tall Treat Boxes and are filled with Jelly Bellies.
