MFT Stamps- Take the Plunge

Fall has arrived, and soon, we'll be busy creating all types of Holiday projects.  I thought I'd post a card I created a few weeks ago, before the Christmas stamps and dies completely take over.  So, here she is.  One of the new Doodle Garden stamps from MFT Stamps.

Here are the Copic marker colors I used, for those interested:  E33, E37, E31, BG15, BG34, BG09, YG03, YG06, Y11, Y15, Y17, R14, R17, and R22.

Halloween Scallop Treat Box

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I love dressing up this scallop treat box from MFT Stamps.  It's one of the Die-namics dies we keep in stock.  It's the perfect size for a couple mini candy bars, or some small Halloween trinkets.  It's really great for any occasion.

I added some foiled paper to the front of this one and found these awesome skull embellishments amongst all the Halloween goodies we have displayed.  Enjoy!
