Amuse Studio Trick or Treat

I made up several of these little treat bags for friends and family.  I purchased the Orange Chevron bags online and then decorated them for Halloween.  I used the No Peeking Stamp set by Amuse Studio along with the Bat Dies Trio to make a cute little tag.  The other tag is a favorite saying - Keep Calm & Scary On is a free printable that I found on Pinterest.  All Amuse Studio Products found HERE

Amuse Studio's Creepy Hollow - Amazing!

All I can say is she outdid herself AGAIN!  I was so very excited to get a package in the mail over the weekend with this wonderful Halloween decoration.  Shari is some kind of talented,!  Now for a close up of all the details. 
She used Amuse Studio's Creepy Hollow stamp set along with the Screenprint background to create the scene.  She added a bit of grass & the spooky fence dies in and around the tomb stones to complete the look.  The lantern even gives off a glow of light - all the details are amazing! 

Check out how she used Amuse Studio's rosette die to look like a spider web.  Don't you love how all the chevrons line up perfectly?  The felt spider is from Amuse Studio's Candy Box die set.  She inked up the edges of the rosette and added a bit of glitter to the mountains of the rosette.
The branches are from Creepy Hollow as well (On our Spotlight Sale thru end of October)  She used Amuse Studio's Bat Die Trio & also made a moon with a circle punch to create another spooky scene.  I absolutely love it and will have this amazingly cute Halloween decoration proudly displayed in my home!  Trick OR Treat - I say most definitely Treat - THANK YOU SHARI!!

Amuse Studio - Stinkin' Cute!

How cute are these cupcakes?  Another great use for Amuse Studio's Onyx Straws to create the Witch's legs. 

Here is the template for the Witch boots.  They were printed on the BACK of a sheet of Onyx cardstock (on the white side) and then cut out!  Using a craft knife, make a small slit in the end of a straw, then slide the cut-out shoe into it.
