Now.....onto my project!

I just LOVE the American Crafts Halloween collection! Aren't these papers delish!!! I wanted to make a cute card for my hubby so when I saw the Can I Tell You A Secret Sarah Kay stamp I knew this would be a perfect image for my card!!!!


Here's a close up of my card! Of course I used my Copics to color my image! And don't you just love those Thickers?! Gotta love all that bling!!! I punched the pumpkins with my new Fiskars punch and then used a combo of stamps and my handwriting to finish the saying!

A close up of the sweet couple:
AND....
NOW FOR THE TRICKS....

How many of you have ordered Lia Sophia jewelry? I love this jewelry and have so many of these empty boxes laying around my house! I thought this size box was PERFECT for altering into a candy holder for Halloween!
And here is the altered box.....with my 2ND TRICK!!!! If you look at the scalloped oval you can see that it is shimmery with a rainbow color effect! Well this is a VERY EASY and CHEAP look to obtain!

All you need is:
A small bowl of warm water
Your piece of cardstock
And clear fingernail polish

Place a couple drops of the clear fingernail polish into your warm water. Then slide your cardstock into the bowl from the side, sliding it underneath the fingernail polish. Let your cardstock float to the top of the bowl and carefully remove with the fingernail polish on top of the cardstock. Set the cardstock on a piece of paper towel to air dry....will take overnight for it to dry (don't heat set or you lose the colorful finish)! Then you have a beautifully one of a kind, hand created background paper!
