Joy is . . . . .

Sweet Pea Stamps

Morning everybody, hope you are having a good day so far :)  Today is my day to showcase and image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have chosen to use Helena Reis's - Joy is ...Dressed Up For Halloween. A while ago one of the websites that sells dies had a crazy, and I mean crazy sale with up to 70% off - now who could resist, not me.  One of the dies I got was to make rosettes by Tim Holtz, I knew it would come in handy as some point in the future.  Anyway, this project seemed perfect for the use of the die in my Halloween gifts.

To begin with I die cut some pumpkins in gold vinyl and put these in the centre of each rosette.  A wooden skewer was attached to the back and some sweets placed in wee bags and attached with ribbons.  Right that bit done :)  Once the rosettes were made using different brown and orange papers I set to work on everything else.

 Next I coloured the fab digi by Helena Reis
 Promarkers used.
Now for a bit of recycling, my empty Bisto gravy container hahahaha.  I covered this with some of the same paper used for a couple of the rosettes.  The top was finished off with some black lace and a die cut spider web added.
 There we go, a fun Halloween container with gifts.
