Stampin' Friends Blog Hop - Halloween theme

Welcome to todays hop with Stampin Friends colleagues round the globe.  Today is my first 'hop' with this group and I liked the fact that they always create a card plus a project.

For today's hop our theme is   'Halloween'.  Whilst this holiday is not celebrated as much in the UK as in the USA, I have some lovely stamps and products to share with you. 

Thinking anything orange and black, surprisingly took me to Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper #146338 as I was looking to create my first ever Tea-Bag pouch for my Orange & Spice tea bag.
This is such a quick and easy mini gift project to make, a few folds and you're done, not even adhesives required.  Isn't the Cat Punch 144666 fabulous for Halloween !!  Did you notice his eyes?  I have a really old tiny handheld punch and punched eyes from our NEW Joyous Noel 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper #147817.  The pack comes with 24 sheets, 8 each of Copper, Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide, and fabulous for all your festive projects.

The ribbons at the top coordinate wonderfully, picking out the DSP colours Grapefruit Grove 1/8" Mini Grossgrain Ribbon #146954 and 3/16" Braided Linen Trim #147808.
Take a look  at the top of page 30 of our Autumn / Winter catalogue and you will see our NEW Take You Pick tool #144107.  This is an absolute must for crafters.  I used the putty end to pick up those teeny tiny eyes!
Moving on to my coordinating card, I chose an Early Espresso base card with a mat layer of Wood Textures 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper #144177.  All other products listed above, with sentiment stamped from Itty Bitty Greetings #146664 (W) #146667 (C) and Classic Label punch #141491
