Halloween is coming up quickly and I have seen the stores stocking up on the candy aisles.  That seems to be the main focus.  And for all of the children, I am sure it is the focus.  It always was for me, and to be truthful…..it still is!


The sentiment is from the set Tags, Tags, Tags in the Annual Catalog.  The matching dies are a carry over from last year’s holiday catalog.  The sentiment says it all!!  I related this card to Halloween in the opening, but it would fit with a birthday also.  Especially with this paper.

The DSP is from the same pack as I used on Tuesday’s card for the Pal’s Blog Hop.  You can see it HERE.  The DSP is the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper and is awesome.  It is variegated colors on some sheets and splotches and splatters on others.  But they are all Bright Colors, which are my favorites.

I stamped the sentiment in Mango Melody and die cut using the matching Trio of Tags dies.  I couldn’t decide what to use a backing and started looking at punches.  I found the perfect fit, and I hope you agree, with the Everyday Label Punch.  A pleasant surprise!

The finishing touches are the ribbon, which is a beautiful ribbon and easy to work with.  It is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo.  The second finisher are the Rhinestones.  I spread a few around just for some shine.

I do want to mention that I used the new Magnetic Platform.  WooHoo!!!  It was worth the wait.  The top is covering a Full Sheet of magnet.  So no more of your die moving when it is being pulled by one of the magnet circles.  Also, the top is a self-healing mat, and also you use it in place of the bottom cutting mat.  A game changer there!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for another new project!  I hope you have a great weekend.
