Crazy 4 Challenges

Aren’t mini trees, topiary trees and big buckets of plants just cool?

The Stamping Boutique has a great digital stamp that you can do LOTS of cool things with! I worked with the “Plant” digi stamp to create this card for challenge #3, handmade flowers. This little just came to life with the punched flowers, vines and bling!

You still have a week to join in on this challenge, so take a chance!

I purchased and won (yea!) some clear stamp sets from The Cat’s Pajamas. I used a set in one of the cards for the Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoaststampers recently and am using another one to meet a couple challenges this week.

I paper pieced the little girl in this set using BasicGrey’s Two Scoops Collection, an oldie but goodie. The colors are so yummy! I also used one of my new Spellbinders fancy label dies that I just love. So fun and a great result! I hope you’ll think so too.

Did you see that moon last night??? WOW, it was beautiful!!

Welcome to the next stop on the Michelle Perkett Studio Full Moon Fever Blog Hop! Michelle has cooked up some very spooky fun for you along the way




throughout the hop!!!

The theme of our hop is Halloween, but since not all of our participants and hoppers may not celebrate Halloween, please share with us some of your traditions around this time of year. Won’t that be fun!!

Along with sharing your tradition for this season, you must leave a comment at each of the blogs along the way and you must say “TRICK OR TREAT” in your comment as well! You never know where one of the giveaways will be, so make sure you follow the directions! 🙂

What are the giveaways? Why they are Spooky Sally, The Haunted Tree and Trick or Treat which can all be seen at Michelle’s Etsy Shop!!

I have some really great candle holders for the Halloween season that I love putting out! My Mom was the big Halloween decorator – big figurines on the lawn, blinking lights and even spooky music playing outside at night!! It was always SO fun!

Here are a couple projects that I did for your viewing pleasure along the hop. I colored The Haunted Tree by printing it on acetate then filled in different parts of the tree on the back with Crystal Lacquer, then sprinkled on the glitter to stick to the lacquer. Cool eh?
