Stampin' Pretty Pals October Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the Pals Halloween Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual trick-or treat hop where you will either learn great tricks for your creative projects or enjoy a blog candy treat. 
You should have just left stop number {11} on the Pals Hop Collena Mollema  at http://www.mycraftyhabit.blogspot.com}. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Here are my projects for the hop: Crazy About Candy Corn card and treat topper!

And here is my trick for you: I didn't have any of the new Halloween designer paper, so I made my own designer paper!!! I used a lot of punches to complete these projects, but it was worth it. I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched circles from my scraps of daffodil delight and pumpkin pie cardstock. I used the tombow multi mono adhesive to adhere the circles to the cardstock in a random fashion. Then I used another one of my favorite tools-The Big Shot and the Square Lattice embossing folder to emboss my cardstock with the colorful circles on it! Now this is not a new technique and I don't know who first thought of it, but thank you. The design and embossing add great texture to the card.
For the bats I used my owl punch and large oval punch.  I love to make and give treats, so a treat topper was the perfect addition to this card.
Here is a list of supplies that I used: Cardstock-whisper white, basic black, pumpkin pie and daffodil delight.  Stamp set: Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Ink: pumpkin pie and whisper white craft.  White gel pen. Punches: Owl, Large oval, modern label, word window, 1/2", 3/4" and 1 inch circle punches.  Bigshot, Top Note Die and the Lattice Square embossing folder.  4x6 Cellophane bags. Dimensionals, Tombow multimono adhesive and mini glue dots.
I also have another trick for you: I staple my treat bag to the inside back of the treat holder
On the inside front of the topper I add glue dots, instead of stapling, which would show on the front.
