Stampin Up Club card exchange

This card was quick and simple! I glued thanksgiving paper to my card, added eyelets to the corners, cut out a tag (and wrote Give Thanks), tied it to the pumpkin using hemp, and used my Spellbinders die: S4-227 Nested Pumpkins (this is the largest one). I then added "lines" to my pumpkin using brown chalk and a q-tip. :)

"Halloween card & 6x6 mini album page"

This card features Spellbinder's die: S4-235 Fancy Tags. For the ghost I used white felt (cut out a ghostly shape), added stickles to the outer edge (halloween pack had purple, orange and black), and wiggly eyes. For the tag I used a halloween stamp and rhinestones.

This is a picture of my husband, Greg. He was the "Mad Scientist" for Halloween, showing all the kids how to make slime.

For the mini album page, I used a versamark pad to stamp my saying and bats, onto the purple paper. I added different papers, black ric-rac and rhinestones, and black photo corners to hold the picture into place. The tag is made using Spellbinders die: Nest-007 Nested Long Classic Rectangles. I couldn't find a number for this one because I have the Nested 4 pack. You can buy it seperately though.
Just a note.......

For those of you that like the Nested Pumpkins (S4-227) and the Nested Maple Leaves (S4-228) that I've used, they are only available until the 30th of November. They are part of Spellbinder's Seasonal Collection.

I designed this card for the Crafty Secrets challenge featured on Split Coast Stampers awhile ago....but then my computer died! :( So, I never got to enter it. But here it is for you to see.

I just used some scrap paper and lace (to make the flag), and I used my crop-o-dile to set eyelets, then added some hemp to that. For the maple leaf I used Spellbinders: S4-228 Nested Maple Leaves and I added some Stickles to that. The moose tag is C.S. that I covered in liquid glass, and adhered with pop up dots.
"Pumpkin treat box & gift tag"

The treat box was made using an "open handle box template' and Spellbinder's die: S3-150 Ribbon Tag Trio and S4-102 Fall Harvest. We chalked around all the pieces and used ribbon glue to adhere the ribbon to the box.

For the gift tag we used Spellbinders die: S4-227 Nested Pumpkins. Chalk was again used around the edges (I lvoe chalk). Use a paper punch, thread some embroidery floss through the hole, and you have a gift tag. :)
