September Guest Star Stamper

I thought I would take this opportunity to share my GSS entries at Papertrey Ink. I am so honored and excited that Nichole Heady chose my Creepy Cap as this month's winner in the Halloween Project category.

I used a Wilton Disposable Decorating Bag filled with Halloween candy. Then made the brim from True Black cardstock and embellished with stamps from Spooky Treats II. The little spiders are from the end of the "best if eaten before..." stamp. The spider charm was stamped on acetate and embossed with black embossing powder. I finished off with Ripe Avocado Swiss Dots ribbon.

The brim is also stamped with the web design and heat embossed using Versamark Ink and clear embossing powder.

My other entry was for the Timeless Templates category to use for sharing seeds with a friend. It holds a small sunflower that when dried will provide the seeds for her garden. They're really pretty - multi-flowered, rusty red & gold.

The template is Get a Handle On It cut from Rustic Cream. The scalloped circle was cut from Summer Sunrise with Spellbinders Nestibilities. Lots of different stamp sets were used for this one. The main image is from Autumn Abundance, stamped with True Black and colored with Copics. The wavy flowers and sentiment are from Around and About Sentiments, stamped in Summer Sunrise. The sentiments on the side and label and the bee are from Flower Garden Sentiments. The little dot trail on the bee is from Wishing You. Flower and ribbon from my stash.

I hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I enjoyed making them. I hope to be back with something for the Blog Hop. See you then.

when I first saw the hat,I knew I needed to use your idea for table decorations for my party. I need help with the brim of the hat How did you attach it to the frosting bag? I love how the brim slopes down and sits so perfectly on the table. I would love a pattern if you are willing to share.
