Hello there! I've been having a lot of fun with the Cookie Cutter Halloween set and wanted to share some projects with you just in time for Halloween. Sorry I'm so late with sharing these-I've been in a funk and didn't feel like doing much of anything:( I should have known getting back to my stamping room would have helped:) Better late than never! For this mummy card I started with a Perfect Plum base and stamped the background image with Perfect Plum ink as well.

I stamped the mummy with Basic Grey ink and used the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to pop it out. I saved 10% by getting the punch with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle, and now I have 2 stamp sets to use with this punch-score! The sentiment is from Suite Seasons and I used Perfect Plum, Basic Grey, Pumpkin Pie & Basic Black Markers to color the stamp. I laid the mummy on the cardstock and was able to get perfect placement for the sentiment. I then attached the mummy with Dimensionals. I needed to girl this up a bit as it will be for my granddaughter Elise. I added eyelashes with a Basic Grey Marker and gave her rosy cheeks using a Q-tip and the Pink Pirouette stamp pad. I layered Halloween Night DSP under all the cookie cutter pieces and tied Halloween Night Baker's Twine around the cardstock. I added some coordinating Halloween Night Washi Tape as well. I tucked a little flag underneath the sentiment using Basic Black Cardstock.

I found the idea for this adorable treat holder on Christy Fulk's blog. You can go to: for the instructions. I made the base out of Basic Black Cardstock and used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch for the ends. For the belly band I used Perfect Plum Cardstock and stamped the background with the same ink. I added Halloween Night Washi Tape around the top edge. I used the set Spooky Fun for the sentiment using Basic Black Archival ink. One of the awesome things about photopolymer stamps is that they are flexible and you can bend them to work with the Duet Banner Punch as I did here. I stamped the sentiment on Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and attached with Glue Dots.

I tucked some Halloween candy inside and strung a piece of Halloween Night Baker's Twine through to tie it shut.

For this duo I used everything from the Halloween Night Suite as above. I used Basic Grey Cardstock for the card base and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock for the flagged piece.

I used Suite Seasons for the background sentiment and the bow tie was stamped with Cookie Cutter Halloween and punched out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

I used Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey & Perfect Plum Cardstock for the treatholder.

I used Pumpkin Pie Cardstock for the card base and the same ink for the background. The flagged piece is Basic Grey. I stamped 'Eddie' a second time onto Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, used the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to punch out the cross, and attached with a Glue Dot.

For the treatholder I used Basic Grey, Pumpkin Pie & Basic Black Cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with Whisper White Craft ink.  I'm off to create more fun for an online Silent Auction we're getting ready for to raise money for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Stay tuned! Thanks so much for stopping by:)
