Frights & Delights Floating Ghost

My alternative for the September 2018 Paper Pumpkin "Frights & Delights" Kit.  This is a box card that folds flat.

4 1/4" x 8 1/2" Basic Black Card Stock, scored at 2", 4", 6" and 8", cut out a rectangle from the front of the box.
1/8" x 4" Basic Black scrap strip, glued to back of ghost and glued to both of the inner sides of the box to make it appear the ghost is floating in air.
Adhere one jack-o-lantern and one bat to the front.

I embossed the "BOO" from Stampin' Up retired set Creep It Real in white embossing powder on the inside back panel, and added a small piece of the fence die from the retired Halloween Scenes die set, behind the jack-o-lantern.

First Frost Workshop Thank You Gifts - Stampin' Up

Every month I try to find a different little something to show my appreciation to the ladies who have joined my Workshop Groups.  This month I designed a little chewing gum package wrapper using the Stampin' Up First Frost Suite of products.

Frosted Floral Speciality DSP was cut to 3" x 3" squares, wrapped around the gum package and secured with glue dots.

The flower from the First Frost Stamp set was stamped after coloring the image with Stampin' Write Markers in Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss then stamped onto Whisper White card stock, and cut out with the coordinating Frosted Bouquet die.

Using the Frosted Bouquet dies, I also cut out the leaf in Mossy Meadow, and the berry sprig in Whisper White.

I used the retired Tiny Tags stamp set and coordinating Jewel Tag punch for the sentiment and attached a Frosted Epoxy Droplet to the tag.
