Halloween Hand-gel Holders

Good afternoon stampers. Hope your weekend is wonderful and productive. It's a cool 57 degrees here in SW MO. Wind is blowing and I can smell the fall air. AHHH what a great smell after having such a HOT summer.

Today, I'm sharing some Hand-gel holders that I've seen around. Most recently over at Ercia's blog

Aren't they the cutest. I have to say, that I had trouble using the med size oval punch twice to get it the right size, so I did some adjustments to her tutorial to make the bottle fit. But nonetheless, they are the cutest things! Would make for a cute little prezzie for your customers, friends and family.

Products I used are.....Stamp Sets: Wicked Cool and Autumn Apparitions (retired).

Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze, Basic Black and Wicked Fun Speciality DSP.

Ink: Black, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze, Basic Gray and Rich Razzleberry Marker.

Misc: Popdots, Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon, 5/8" Black Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/2, 1 1/4 and 1 1/2" Circle Punches, Scallop Punch, Lrg Oval Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Oval Scallop Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Lrg Bat Punch, MS Drippy Goo Punch, Black Hemp, Paper Piercer and White Gel Pen

That's it from me today. Have a wonderful Sunday. Thanks so much for stoppin by.

Bells & Boughs Candle

Good evening everyone! Hope you had a great weekend as it winds down and gettin ready for another work week. Another warm day here in SW MO, as Vicki told me this morning, FALL hasn't told SUMMER it was time to leave. Since summer isn't offically over yet, guess fall will have to wait a few more days.

Today, I'm sharing a candle that I made using Bells & Boughs from the Holiday Mini, some tissue paper, Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight markers and my heat gun. To make the bow and ribbon around the candle, I used Gold Waffle Paper. After I put the candle inside the glass bowl, I put some Frosty Decortive Snow in it. This would make a great centerpiece and a gift for your gift giving. I hope you like it!

That's all from me today, THANKS so much for stopping by. Happy Stampin!!
