Here is a close-up of coordinating projects I made to go with the cards and Bingo Cards posted earlier this week. I love how easy SU! makes it to coordinate stamps, accessories, and colors. No other company can do this well. I don't have to search for colors and coordinating products, I trust SU! to do that for me. They make crafting that much easier.
I recycled a spice jar and decorated it using TANGERINE cs (#111349), TEXTURED BLACK cs (119922), GOING GRAY cs (retired), RAVEN LACE trim (#120988), DECORATIVE LABEL PUNCH (#120907), misc. colored baker's twine, and plastic spider. I used hot glu eto adhere the label, and spider. Distressed the edges of the candle image with TANGERINE INK (#111834) using SPONGE DAUBERS (#102892). I filled the jar with black and white gumdrops. Now, which "lucky", or should I say "unlucky", person should I give this to?  

I love making tags! They are one of my favorite things to make. They work for just about everything. They can be super easy to very elaborate but, always so fun to make.  "When in doubt, add a tag". This goes for card fronts, scrapbook pages, candles,labels, gifts, etc... I used GOING GRAY cs ( retired), BASIC GRAY cs (#121044), BASIC BLACK cs (#121045), TANGERINE (#111349), RAVEN LACE trim (#120988), DARK & DREARY stamp set (# 121151), SPIDER WEB TEXTURE FOLDER (#120889),  decorative edge scissors (retired), misc. ribbon and baker's twine, misc. spider web edge punch,  and plastic spider. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed the ensemble and my quick/ easy ideas. Make sur eto stop by again.



These could not have been any easier. The cards are cut directly from 2 sheets of the NITE OWL DS paper (#123012) for a total of 8 Bingo cards. I mounted each 5.75in. card onto TANGERINE CS (#119949).  I think I will use these at my daughter's Halloween Party at school (her last school Halloween party).  If you are a fan of this idea you need to check out the BINGO CARD stamp (#120851) on page 29 from the Holiday Mini Catalog. You could make a variety of themed Bingo Cards ie: Baby Shower, Christmas Party, Easter, Thanksgiving, St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's, or Birthday.
In the mini catalog they use black jellybeans for  Bingo markers but, I thought that misc. Halloween punched images would be a fun and inexpensive way to mark the card. I used SU's BITTY BAT punch (#119279) along with other small punches (scalloped square, spider, witch, and owl).



I had time to do some stamping today- yeah! Finally! I bought the entire line of 1800's London Halloween Suite. The minute I saw this line of products, I knew I had to have them. I used the verse/ large rectangle stamp from the set DARK & DREARY (#121151); the gray patterned paper  from the NITE OWL DESIGNER PAPER PACK (#123012); BASIC BLACK; BASIC GRAY; TANGERINE cardstock; 1/2" LACE TRIM (#120988) to complete the cards.

Speaking of 1/2 " LACE TRIM, have you bought this yet? If you haven't, shame on you! It is great! It ties easily, lays flat, and is so charming added to a variety of surfaces. Just look at it against this tangerine cardstock before I added it to the card fronts. I assembled everything in an assembly line and thought these looked so great all by themselves. "Kinda Spooky"

I wanted to share an easy tip for adding a little bit of color to this intricate image. First, I stamped the images on a going gray (retired) cardstock. I  then cut out the images with decorative edged scissors (retired) and distressed jagged edges and center circle using TANGERINE CLASSIC INK (#111834) with a SPONGE DAUBER (#102892). The diameter works perfect to add a little color to the circle of this image. I cannot live without these daubers. I use them for almost every project.

Viola! Didn't it work out perfect? How else could you add the color in a perfect circle? You can use this technique on many circular images and accents. I have never stamped on a gray and I love the look of it with the distressed edges. Stay tuned for some more fun ideas using this line of products, make sure you check back again this week. Thanks for stopping by.
