Trick-or-Treat Blog Hop

Welcome to the second stop on the blog hop!  I am super excited about this, since it is my very first blog hop!!  I hope it gets your creative juices flowing to create something fun in the coming days.  The holidays are around the corner and there is no better time to start crafting!

You may have just stopped by Heather's page  In keeping with our Trick-or-Treat theme, I thought I would do both.  So, let's start with a TREAT (aka card) . . .

First, the supplies. I used the Stampin' Up! Jack of all Trades set-a must have for Halloween and Fall themed cards and pages.  Assorted inks: So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Pumpkin Pie, Concord Crush, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip.  Other accessories were Black Embossing powder, Versamark ink, 1/16" hole punch, circle punch, Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads and heat tool. Cardstock: Perfect Plum and Whisper White 

What did I do with all this?

First, I took my circle image pumpkin and inked it up in the Peach Parfait ink.  Then I rolled the stamp in the Pumpkin Pie ink for the Rock n Roll technique.  I did this 3 times giving me 3 pumpkins in a row.  I did this a 4th time on a separtate sheet of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out.  I placed Stampin' Dimensionals on the pack and placed this pumpkin over my middle pumpkin to give the 3-D effect.  The face and hat were both heat embossed using black embossing powder.

The moon was done by punching a circle out of a post it note.  I took the negative part and placed it in the top left corner and sponged with So Saffron to make a moon.  The sky was sponged with Concord Crush and then I sponged some Old Olive at the bottom to look like grass.

Still needed a little something so I took the 1/16" hole punch and made 3 punches in the top right corner and placed the rhinestones.  The card base is Perfect Plum cardstock.

And there you have it!

Now for the TREAT. . .
