GIVEAWAY WINNER + Happy Halloween – All Treats & No Tricks! :)

Hello friends!  I want to thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for everyone of you that has entered my give away, left such sweet comments full of birthday wishes and lots of kindness that you’ve shared through something we have in common which is creating and sharing smiles!  I so enjoyed the stories that you’ve left about how you share your handmade creations with others.  (I especially thought that was so thoughtful to share a birthday card -donation- in honor of my birthday as well!  That meant so much to me!)  PLEASE continue to create doing what you love and share those smiles with as many people as you can!  It really makes the world a much better place when we can serve one another in kindness.

*I will be announcing the winner shortly…scroll down below if you can’t stand the wait! LOL!*

I have always loved Halloween as a child and have so many fond memories dressing up each year and thinking about what I would be.  I tried to pass that tradition onto my children and I dressed up right along with them!  For me, Halloween is full of lots of fun things besides just treats!  I wanted to celebrate those memories with a card today:

Vicki-BM-HalloweenBox

 

Aren’t those trick-or-treaters adorable?!  Most everything that I have used on my card here came from a Brutus Monroe Halloween Card Kit.  It has long been since sold out, but You can still purchase the stamp set in the store if you are interested.  The name of the set is called “All Hallows Eve“.   I’ve stamped the trick-or-treaters and bat and then colored them up with my Copic markers and fussy cut them all out and put them aside while I worked on the rest of the card.

For the background of the card, that “tree branch” panel came in the kit, so I ran it through my laminator to foil it…it turned out awesome!  (See photo below!)  I then took my distress inks and blended in a night sky over it.  I spritzed it with water and dried it off with a towel to get the water drop look.

I took this awesome border silhouette die from Impression Obsession and attached to the bottom of the scene for the trick-or-treaters to stand on.  I sponged the bottom edge with white ink.  Speaking of white ink, this is what I used to stamp the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock as well as sponge around the edges with it.  I used the glow-in-the-dark embossing powder over top of it.  (Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a good photo of it glowing in the dark….but it does and it looks cool!)  I made a banner with that strip and attached it to the left side of the card and then popped the bat up over it with foam tape.

Here you can capture a better look at the foiled tree branch in the background as well as the heat embossed sentiment.  I glued down the mummy girl and then I took foam tape to pop up the frankenstein for dimension and depth.  I also added some yellow Stickles to the eyes and mouths on the pumpkins.

This card was so fun to do!  Hope you’ve enjoyed it as well!

Wishing you all a very fun Halloween however you choose to spend it!  I think I will be watching some scary movies and eating some popcorn which is something I enjoy doing with hubby!

StampedSmilesGiveawaynames

So this is how I went about how to pick out a name.  I wrote down in numercal order all the names that entered the give away with the blue InLinkz froggie…there were a total of 47 entries just for that!  I then went through all the comments where each person that commented about how they shared the giveaway and/or where each person mentioned how they share smiles with their crafty creations and I wrote their number and name down again for each item that qualifies for an additional entry.  I cut each name out in a strip…lots of writing and cutting!  LOL  DO YOU SEE YOUR NAME IN THERE?!

StampedSmilesGivewawyfoldednames

Once all the names were cut in strips, I folded up each strip and layed them on my glass mat in a pile after shuffling them around a bit.  I walked out of my room and asked my hubby to go in and grab a strip of paper, open it up with the name showing and lay it next to the pile.

Are you excited?!  DRUM ROLL PLEASE…………
