Control Freaks BOO to You! Blog Tour

Welcome... It's time to hop along with the super fabulous Control Freaks group!  This month's theme is, as you might guess, Halloween!  I'm a big fan of Halloween, so I had to play along.  You've probably arrived here from Debbie Henderson's blog.  Her projects are always so beautiful!

I was very attracted to the Note Tag punch in the Holiday catalog, so I had to think of a way to use it.  I just love little candy holders, so here's a new quick-and-easy nugget holder.

Start with 1-1/2" strips of cardstock, stick the paper into the back of the punch to only punch the upper edge.  Then score 2-1/4" and 3-1/4" from the punched edge to create the nugget holder.  You can fold the holder and make a little pencil line to mark where the next upper edge punch should go.

Grab some nuggets, decorate, and you're done!  There are tons of fun stamp sets in the Holiday catalog for decorating!

Stamps: Merry Everything, Fall Fest, Ghoulish Greetings, Tee-Hee-Hee; Paper: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Whisper White; Ink: Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Black Stazon; Accessories: In Color Sequin Assortment, Old Olive & Tangerine Tango Two Tone trim, Note Tag punch, 1/8" punch, Fall Fest framelits, Bitty Banners framelits, Big Shot.

I challenged myself to make a project with the Tee-Hee-Hee stamp set, and the little pieces of the witch's outfit just said dress up to me.  My daughter loves interactive cards, so this is a greeting card for a child, who can then position the pieces on the card as he/she likes (think Colorform).

To make the pieces repositionable, I applied Tombo liquid glue to the back of the pieces and let dry overnight.  I put the "stickers" on a piece of Window Sheet.

Here's an example of the stickers in place with the swinging doors open...

... and closed.

I had the help of my e-cutter to cut out the frame pieces.

Stamps: Tee-Hee-Hee, Hardwood BG; Paper: Hello Honey, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla, Window Sheet; Ink: Old Olive, Hello Honey, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Mini Silver brad, Linen thread, In Color Sequin Assortment, Sponge, Simply Scored, e-cutter, Dimensionals.

Now it's time to jump over to the Judy DiScipio's blog to check out what lovelies she has for us.

Heidi, your creativity never ceases to amaze me! Love the interactive card, and when I saw the "EEK" I though that when you opened the card, there' d be a undressed witch trying to cover herself, lol.
