I "Cased" this card from Pinterest or someones blog (not sure who to give the credit to)
Anyway, isn't this little candy corn face just adorable?
I used an oval punch, circle punches, and the "Duet Banner Punch".
For the sparkly cheeks, I used some Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper (shown on pg. 55 in the Holiday Catty)
Treat Boxes / Party Favors made by Debbie Kramer, Nancy Bowen & Darlene Anstett.
Again, the "Duet Banner Punch" was used.
The Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper can be found on pg. 51 (Holiday book)
Here is a side view of the treat boxes.
StampinUP carries these "Clear Tiny Treat Boxes" on page 176 in the Annual Catalog
If you have any comments or questions, please let me know.
I would love to hear from YOU!! Lori

I used pcs. and parts from the Sept. Paper Pumpkin Kit to make this alternative project.
The bricks & spider web came from the paper "Halloween Night" found on pg. 51 in the Holiday Catty.
Another Halloween card I made using Halloween Night Specialty DSP
I also used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the words and the Classic Label Punch.
Along with the featured paper, I used the Confetti Stars Border Punch
I also used the 1 3/8 Circle Punch for a mask. (sponged in the moon)
The cute little skeleton guy comes from the "Cookie Cutter Halloween" Set

The "sparkle" on this project is the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate in gold.
Also, I used some gold embossing powder for the sentiment
Again, the tag on the left features the designer acetate & the tag on the right features
Gold Sequin Trim and Gold Glimmer Paper.
All class attendees recd this red gift bag and tag they made.
I used the Gold Satin Ribbon and the Gold Foil Sheets to get a little "sparkle" on this project
Although this card holder does not sparkle, it did pack a punch with my ladies.
(Inspired by Sue Boerner)
This is retired designer paper but still very effective.
This magazine style card box holds our regular size cards & envelopes.
Would make a great gift for the holiday, right?
Please contact me for details on this card holder.
Thanks very much for stopping by. I hope these projects will inspire you to "Get Your Sparkle On"!
