Hello! Thanks for stopping by for the Magnolia-licious Halloween Blog Hop!! If you came from Suzanne's blog: Welcome!! You're on the right path for Halloween Fun!! If you are starting here, you still on the path of fun...but I recommend starting at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog so that you can get the info on making a set of your own and possibly winning a $10 Gift Certificate to Magnolia-licious!!!! Yeah!!

You can get loads of treat holder instructions at the Scor-Pal projects page. Click HERE for instructions for the one I made. It was SUPER EASY!! I am not joking when I say that it took me only about 5 minutes to make. (Five minutes to make the holder...45 minutes to color the Tilda!! LOL!) Also, I did add a little "topper" to my project. (The black Goo) By cutting a 3"x3" piece of black cardstock and scoring at the 1.5" mark. Then, just folded it over and continued on.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to make projects for!! I love the fun colors of Orange, Black, Green and Purple. I think those colors look so striking together!! But they are purely Halloween. And to me, Halloween is just about FUN and kids. Pumpkins and Costumes! Candy! All in that wonderful season of Autumn. The funny thing is that although I tend to make lots of projects...I hoard them! I don't want some kid tearing apart my candy holder!! LOL! However, I am going to give this set away. I know that a fellow stamper/crafter will appreciate my time and at least take a moment to say "aww...how nice" before ripping it apart for the Peanut Butter Cup and Milky Ways inside!! LOL! So leave a comment on this post to be entered to win this set. I will randomly select a winner on Tuesday 8/25.



>>>To make the background around Tilda on the card I left the Nestie die on the cardstock after it was cut. Using sponges I sponged on some So Saffron (yellow) ink and some Creamy Caramel (beige) ink. Then around just the very edges I sponged on some black. Then I removed the die to reveal the white edges. I didn't cut out a "mask" to protect Tilda from sponging.... I am lazy
:) I just used some scrap cs to cover her up and sponge as close as I could. Also, I used last Friday's Friday Sketchers sketch (that's a mouthful!) for my card. They always have such great sketches over there! It's hard not to participate each week.


>>>To decorate the treat holder, I used some scraps from decorating
the inside of the card. I just cut a 3 inch wide strip for the bottom. I cut the "trick or treat" out from the same scraps...I just cut a little "V" out of it to make like a flag/banner. E-Z Peazy!


I have been in a bit of a stamping and blogging funk lately, so I have not posted as much as usual...nor have I participated in some of the weekly challenges that I like to. (including my own!) But my projects today also qualify for this week's Bloggers Challenge: Punches and/or Dies. After you finish the Halloween Blog Hop, check out to see what the rest of the
BC girls have made with their Dies and/or Punches.


~*~*~*~To continue on with the blog hop head over to Sharon's blog. I know that girl must have something ├╝ber CUTE to share with you! She and all the girls on the Magnolia-licious Design Team are so super creative and talented!!~*~*~*~



Have a BOO-tiful Weekend!
