Halloween Coffin Treat Boxes featuring Magnolia Goodies!

Hello Dearest Readers,

How are you this wonderful Tuesday in October? I love October so much. I love the changes it brings. The leaves are so gorgeous at the higher elevations. It's still fairly warm here. By the beginning of November, it'll be time to pull out a sweater or two.

My sweet husband is having cataract surgery today. I know he'll feel better when he realizes how much better his vision will be. Bless his heart. He's not seeing things very well at all. Keep him in your thoughts today, please. Getting old is so much fun - NOT!!!!!

Magnolia-licious is now carrying the Stamping Bella Stamps. I love the whimsical images! Each one just seems to say, "Be happy!" I can't even pick a favorite as I like them all the same!

Today is Team B's turn to reveal their creations for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog's current challenge

Spooktacular Fun

I didn't want to make a card this time, so I decided to share some little coffin treat boxes! I was SO BAD WHEN I DID A COUPLE OF THESE! I NEVER use terms like those I put under two of the images, but I must have been in an impish mood! I have to admit, I did laugh a lot as I put the words on. I felt like a little kid! LOL. Here are my images:

I chose to use two Magnolia mini Tildas - Bat Tilda and Tilda with Spiderweb. The Magnolia bat is called Cute Bat. I hung him upside down and forgot to put in a tree branch for his feet to grab! DUH! I also used some Doohickey Dies from Kit 6. I added a touch of sparkle using the Magnolia Chandelier Garland snips. The large yellow orange rose is also from Magnolia. Here are some closeups:

I had so much fun with these little treat boxes! I'll fill them with Snickers and other yummy Halloween candies! The boxes are 6 1/2" in length and about 3 1/4" at the widest point. They were made from sturdy double sided designer card stock which made for a patterned interior as well.

I hope you got a giggle from my trio of coffins. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Now it's your turn! Won't you join the Spooktacular Challenge? As you can see by the DT examples, there are many ways you can make something that is Spooktacular, too! We'd love to see your creations!

Thank you for stopping by.

Wild Rose Studio Bella on Bauble Wishes You a Merry Christmas!

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Wednesday to each of you! Have you seen that Diana is now carrying the new Stamping Bella line of stamps? Here is the link:

Stamping Bella is now at Magnolia-licious!

Today is "W"ednesday, and I thought I'd share a Wild Rose Studio stamp entitled "Bella on Bauble." I really love these little Bella stamps! This is an adorable Christmas themed stamp. When I made this card, Diana had it in the shop! But I jut checked for the link and it is now gone! I am sorry for that. If you like it, check w/Diana. Maybe she can get it in for you. Here is my card:

I thought this card turned out very nicely and very festively. I used red foil card stock for the edge mat, decorative mat, and bauble. I used a winter themed embossing folder for the textured background. The flowers are from my stash. The red berries are from either WOC or LALC. The gold Merry Christmas are stickers. On the bauble, I added clear acrylic stars that add sparkle. Bella has been colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

I hope you like my Bella on Bauble card. If you have any questions, just ask!

This card is for sale, along with others, in my Etsy Shop!

I am so glad that you stopped by. Please leave a comment if you have the time. Those sweet words are what keep me wanting to push my creative juices! I hope you will return again very soon! Your visit means the world to me!
