Happy Haunting!

This is my second post for the day, so be sure to scroll down and see the other.

I was so excited to receive my goodies from Taylored Expressions. Taylor has a new line of stamps called Stamp a Sweet Impression, and are they ever SWEET! I had to have them all! {LOL} I also bought the Key Ingredients... Taylor does such a great job picking out coordinating papers and accessories. Her ribbons are to die for!

Anyway, what better chance to play with my new stamps and accessories than Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #34.

I actually hand stitched the long panel by prepunching the holes using my Stampin Up paper piercing template from the Mat Pack and then using black embroidery floss for the stitches. I "glitterfied" the house with the black glitter than came with the Key Ingredients. I stamped the small green panel with the tree, cat and moon, and then mounted the house on top with Dimensionals. The metal frame is from Stampin Up's Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware... I just used a black Sharpie to color the edges before mounting with two of the brads that also came with the Key Ingredients kit. So fun! I can't wait to make more!

I've finally started my own Demonstrator Business Web Site, so be sure to check it out. You can order on line, plus keep up with the latest specials. It's still a work in progress, so bear with me. I plan to add more projects to the site, and I will send out a newsletter every month.

Thanks for visiting!

This is so, so cute. I love every detail. The hand stiching really sets it off.
