Star of Light Candle Holder

We had special guests at our monthly Stamp Share on Tuesday! Brenda is also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and a good friend of Betty's. She brought one of her downline and they had the second Make & Take project for us: 

the back side

the pieces

the candle with Washi Tape around the edge

Colors: Copper, Night of Navy, Whisper White

The box started out as a 4" square piece of Night of Navy card stock, scored at 1" all the way around. After cutting tabs, folding, and adhering the tabs, the box is 2" square. The Window Sheet strip is 2 x 12". Do the stamping and embossing first so you don't get fingerprints all over the window sheet. Then punch the ends and make 2 score lines 2" apart in the center for your box.

Cookie Cutter Halloween Spooky Fun Thoughtful Banners Skeleton

Last night was our monthly Stamp Share. Now that it's done, I can share my swap card! 

Colors: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White

I used the Tear & Tape on the black layer to adhere it to the Glimmer Paper. I normally use Fast Fuse with the Glimmer Papers, but it didn't work very well with the Pumpkin Pie. It seems to lose the glitter more than the other colors, so maybe that's why.

Cookie Cutter Halloween Spooky Fun Trick-Or-Treaters

Since I didn't feel like cutting out all the ovals that were needed on yesterday's card if I used it for the swap, I moved on to another idea. I loved the Cookie Cutter Christmas and Halloween stamp sets as soon as I saw them. Throw in a matching punch and I'm hooked! I don't usually make much for Halloween, but I'm trying to use what I had to order!

I saw a card on Pinterest that had the skeleton embossed in white and thought it was cute, so that's what started this card.

Colors: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White

I cut out the trick-or-treat bag by hand. I used the Tear & Tape on anything that was attached to the Glimmer Paper- the white oval for the greeting and the black layer for the cookie guys.
