Autumn Peppers and Halloween Treats (by Asha)

Hello fellow Chocoholics. It's wet, cold and windy... perfect weather to play with your new Chocolate Baroque toys. I'm here to help you get delightfully inky, so let's get right to it, shall we?

Here's a step centre step card featuring a stalk of peppers from the Autumn Poppy A4 stamp sheet.  I created the background by blending distress inks in blue and yellow. On the side panels I stamped some leaves from the Autumn Poppy set and on the central panel I used a stamp from the Texture Fragments A4 stamp sheet. I coloured the peppers with alcohol markers, fussy cut and adhered it to the card. The sentiment is from the Loving Sentiments A5 stamp sheet.

I confess... I have a thing for Halloween. Playing dress up is fun but the real joy of Halloween for me is the treats. With that in mind I made a couple of Trick or Treat bags for our Halloween party. And to keep our guests guessing, these bags are tied ... so there will be no peeking!

The shorter bag features a pumpkin from the Things That Go Bump A5 stamp sheet, coloured with alcohol markers and fussy cut. For the background I used a stamp from the Harlequin Fragments A4 sheet, then finished with a greeting from the Spookylicious A5 stamp sheet and some black ribbon to secure the contents of the box.

The taller bag showcases the bubbling cauldron from the Book Of Spells A5 stamp sheet. I inked up the background with distress inks, heat embossed the image in black and tied the box with some black & white twine.

These are just a few projects that will keep you busy in the run up to Halloween. I'll post details of the products used on my blog. In the meantime, make sure you drop by the Design Team blog regularly for more wonderful creations by my team-mates. You are in for a treat, friends... no tricks!

  4. Love the little bags and the colours on the card are fabulous

  5. Two lovely pieces of work. I love the colours and the background on the first with those lovely bright peppers and a pretty shape to the card. I also like the way the topper goes off the top and bottom of the card a little bit, and beautifully coloured too. The Halloween goody bags are an excellent idea. x

  6. These are all lovely, great colour choice on each.

  7. I absolutely adore the colours and the background on the card! And those Trick or Treat bags look like fun! I'll be trying to make these at home!

  8. Think you have played with beautiful results! The bag and the shapecard are my favs, but they all look great!

  9. Great colours on the cards, and that tangled fragments stamp looks perfect with the pumpkin, like some eerie mist swirling around it.

  10. WOW! these are just fabulous
