Happy Halloween Treats!

Hey there crafty friends! Karla here today with some cute treat bags to share with you. My girls are so excited about Halloween, and one of the things they love to do is give out treats to their friends at this time of the year!

I wanted to make up some cute tags for the bags, so I started by making a grid in a word processing program on my computer and inserting the Halloween digital stamps and sentiments from Werewolf, Candy Faces, Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein's Monster, Mummy, Vampire , Zombie and My Boo. I originally made these as Lunch Box Notes, but figured they'd also work great to add to a tag. I left them uncoloured and added crayons to the treat bags so the kids could colour them after eating their candy. 'Cause you know a 4 year old is eating the candy first, lol!

I used the label feature on my computer to quickly create this sheet of labels - adding a sentiment from the Werewolf digital stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps and typing in Erica's name below. After I stuck the stickers to the back of the tags, these cute bags were ready to tie up and head to the class party!

I thought these cute tags finished off the treat bags so nicely! 

Here's Erica all ready to celebrate. She's actually planning on being a witch for the big day but wanted to change it up for today. And, hey, when you're 4 that's just how you roll!

Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to check out the Pretty Cute Stamps Store, and if you're celebrating Halloween, I hope you have lots of spooky fun!

A Little Announcement

TGIF, everyone! I have some news to share with you. I have made the tough decision to take a break from designing new stamps for a little least through the holidays and the New Year. I just need to step back for a bit to regroup and spend time with family. This means that I will not be creating new digis for a while, and our challenges and blog hops will be suspended (after the current challenge expires). I know this is an unusual step for a business owner to take, but I really feel it's something I need to do this year. I hope you understand.

The store will stay open, of course, so you'll still be able to purchase those sets you've had on your wishlist, if you want. Be sure to stay subscribed to our newsletter, this blog, and our Facebook never know when a surprise sale may show up.

I also want you remind you that our current challenge is still going on through November 5. You can find out all of the details here...and you could win a $15 Gift Certificate to the PCS store if you participate.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I want to wish everyone a very merry holiday season. :)

Candy Boxes

Hi everyone!!

It´s here Noe from SCN blog to show you my newest project using PCS Digis!! At this time, easy to make, but really cute, Candy Boxes... It´s time to give some candies, isn´t it?

I just had to punch these beautiful bags with my new die from Lawn Fawn and add my stamps painted with a nice sentiment ...

These boxes have the perfect size to have a detail with the smallest of the house or that special person... Add some embellishments more (such as a heart or a sticker) and close it with a piece of Baker´s Twine.

To make my project, I used the new Digi Stamp Set "Pumpkin Spice":

Here are some close ups:

Hope you like them!!

Have a nice day!!

Happy Halloween

Hello friends. Larissa here with you today with one last Halloween card.
For this card I printed the Mummy Digi Stamp.
I colored it using Copic markers W1 and W00.
I cut it out and adhered it to a piece of light orange card stock and then onto a black and gray polka dot card base.
I added bats from the clear stamp set Spooktacular as well as the sentiment and skull.

I added a few googly eyes for embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Have a Happy Halloween friends.

It's my day to post some inspiration and today I made a lil' wall art piece.

I used an image and sentiment from the "Hey Cupcake" digital set and printed them on an A5 (5.8" x 8.3") watercolor paper. I used mute colors this time and the rays are watercoloring using a stencil :-)

Hey, Ghoulfriend!

Hello everyone! It's Amber here, today I'm sharing this girly Halloween card featuring Pretty Cute Stamps My Boo Digital Stamp Set and Notes Of Praise Digital Stamp Set. These two little ghost are just to cute, I love how the set includes three different faces giving you the option to feature a different face each time. 

I used one of the adorable little ghosts and the "Hey, Ghoulfriend" sentiment from the My Boo set and paired them with some stars from the Notes Of Praise set.  I opened the two images and the sentiment I wanted to use in Photoshop and created the little scene you see above. I printed my images and sentiment onto some fun ledger patterned paper, white cardstock, and purple cardstock. I fussy cut the ghosts out of the white cardstock, colored them with some Spectrum Noir Markers, add some mini goggle eyes to them, and adhered them to my patterned paper piece. I fussy cut the stars out of the purple cardstock and adhered them to my patterned paper piece just like the ghosts. Once all my fussy cut pieces were adhered to my patterned paper piece I die cut my finished scene with a 4" x 5 1/4" pierced rectangle die.

I hope you enjoyed my fun little girly Halloween card today. Thanks for visiting!
