Hello and welcome to this month’s OSAT Blog Hop!  This month our theme is Ghouls, Goblins, and Gourds!  I know that there are a lot of fun festive ghoulish projects that have been created by the other design team members.   For my projects this month I created a fun Halloween card with a watercolor night sky background and images from the Cauldron Bubbles Stamp Set.  My 3d project is a super quick and easy tag and candy filled lined box.  Here’s a look at this month’s projects.  

Halloween Card:

For my card I created a watercolor card background using a new set of watercolors that I got in the mail the other day.  I also stamped and colored all the images in the set and watercolored them as well.  I will be sharing a video of how I created the background later today.  I layered the painted background onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock (4 x 5 1/4) and placed the card front on a side folding card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).  I added a white heat embossed sentiment on a strip of basic black cardstock.  

Quick & Easy Halloween Treats: 

For my 3d project this month I used the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and strips of the Toil and Trouble designer Series Paper placed on the inside of the box.  I added several piece of foil wrapped caramels in Halloween colors.  Once I had the box filled with as much as possible I created a simple trick or treat tag with some scraps of whisper white cardstock and a little of the copper glitter paper from the Joyous Noel 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper.  I love this glimmer paper (I don’t normally use it because glitter got everywhere) but with this paper i could rub it on me and scrub it hard and no glitter came off.  

To finish off the treat box I added some of the lovely black glitter organdy ribbon tied around the threat box.  I created the tag by stamping the Trick or Treat with tuxedo black ink and stamped the little stars in pumpkin pie.  I die cut the sentiment and some of the glimmer paper with the Layering Circle Framelits.  I punched a small hole behind the whisper white sentiment and tied it to the bow with a little solid black baker’s twine and trimmed it off so you can not see it.
