Kids' Halloween Fun with Oriental Trading

Hello everyone!  Halloween will be here before we know it, so I got started on some fun Halloween crafting with my kids.  In our house, we love fun Halloween things, not creepy, so this is what we made.  These products that Oriental Trading sent me were absolutely perfect!
 First up the GOODIES!  What is Halloween without these?!  I love the selection of Halloween Candy that OT offers.  For this grouping, I chose an allergy friendly Chewy Candy Assortment, Peanuts Halloween stickersLarge Beam Flashlight Keychains and Toy Filled Jack-O'-Lanterns.
The Peanuts Halloween Bowl was perfect to hold it all.  This is a closer look at what is inside the Toy Filled Jack-O'-Lanterns.  They each hold a spider ring and one other assorted toy.
Next up, my boys and I did a little Halloween crafting! Oriental Trading has several things that fall into that category, but we chose to decorate with fun foam faces Pumpkin Decorating Kit.

My youngest son wanted to decorate the foam pumpkin and chose such a happy face to put on it!
My two older boys decorated White Mini Pails.  The foam faces were a little large for them, but we just didn't use all of the foam elements that were included in each set.  They enjoyed making them look goofy!
These buckets held LOTS of candy!
All in all, it was a great evening spent having lots of Halloween fun!  A huge thank you to Oriental Trading for sending us these wonderful items to create with.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Mini Fall Treat Box

Happy Thursday! I am sharing this sweet fall treat box on the Trendy Twine blog today.
Fall is definitely in the air so this sweet little 2x2" Kraft Box is decorated accordingly!  I added paper from DCWV's Sweater Weather stack on the outside then I jazzed it up.  First thing was to use a Sky Tag-Its and use stamps from the Hello Fall Planner Stamp set on it.  I stamped them with a dark brown ink.  The images were cut around and I also added a shadow layer behind them.  A few Autumn Sequins and the tag was complete!
The front of the box has a small die cut doily, a leaf from the Hello Fall Planner Stamp, and Autumn Sequins.  Last, but certainly not least, I wrapped the whole box with Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine and tied it in a bow on the top.
Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Hope Has Wings Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday. Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog with this card.
I started by stamping the wings from the VO Wings stamp set on vellum, heat embossing it and fussy cutting around them.  The card base uses paper from DCWV's Minty Lace and Paper Lace 6x6" stacks.  I used white satin ribbon along the top and double sided pink satin ribbon to make the breast cancer ribbon between the wings.
To finish off the card, I added a tag with a sentiment from the VO Wings stamp set and put a tie of Pink Midnight Trendy Twine on it.   A few dots of white Nuvo Crystal Drops and it was done!
Here is a look at the stamps I used:

Fishing Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday!  I have a masculine birthday card to share with you that uses a stamp set from Gina Marie Stamps called Fishing Stamps.
I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped images and a sentiment from that stamp set on it using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my Stamp Perfect tool.  I die cut a square around the focal images with the GMD Up & Down In & Out Cut Square die set.  I then colored the fish with colored pencils and inked up water using a torn piece of paper and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.
The whole white area was cut with a GMD Stitched Rectangle die.  The square with the fish was popped up with scotch foam tape for extra dimension.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
