Glitter Queens 2011 Blog Hop!
Hello, I'm Tamara, I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit, this is my first blog hop, well that is the first blog hop that I have participated in as a designer, I'm very happy and excited to share my creations with you! I hope you've been enjoying the fabulous goodies that all the ladies have created. You should have just arrived from
Candice's blog, her lovely creations are so inspiring now I know I'm going to have to get the Printed Petals Set.....
I chose to use the Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Set and the DSP Frightful Sight, from the New Idea Book & Catalog. I have 3 young daughters and was inspired by them to create some treat goodies, we plan on recreating enough for their Halloween Class parties. *(To see a close up just click on the photo, then hit the back button to return to this page)
First of all I created the cupcake toppers, I used the scallop trim border punch around the edge of the accordian folded piece on the smaller toppers and I used pinking shears to cut around the edge of the larger topper. I love the way this step enhances the final product. Then I created a couple 'sour cream' treat containers, there was a tutorial in Stampin Success, I couldn't resist trying it out. The results are a simple, quick, fantastic, treat container, I will be making more of these for Halloween and Christmas too!
Since I was having so much fun I decided to make some toppers for the new cellophane bags in the holiday mini, I love these bags, you have so many options for the type of treat to put inside, plus they turn out so cute, my girls and I are going to make a bunch of these!
The Spooky Bingo Bits set is so versatile, it also makes up a fun, spooky, bingo game, which would be great to play at your Halloween party or to create a set for a Best Costume Gift. I also made up some spooky lollipop covers, 6 of them along with 6 Decorated cello bags are what I have for some yummy blog candy, there all ready to give to your favorite spooky guests.
