In Stamping Mode

No tricks here...just treats!

I had my Halloween treats class earlier this evening and boy was that a treat!! I got to visit with two friends I hadn't seen in a long time. (Hi Heathers!) Prior to that, I had been slowly but surely preparing for Halloween...which, by the way, is one of my FAVORITE holidays of the year! Anyway, decorating has been SOO much more fun now that Stampin' Up! has branched way out beyond just card and scrapbook making. So off I went to Ikea with an idea in my head of creating a nice Halloween place setting. This is what I came up with:

And here is another top view:

And another close up to the skull straw:


You can't see it very well, but there are little skull rub-ons on the glass randomly placed in between the little dots. So cute in person!

I took my little challenge to heart yesterday and incorporated gray!! :) The little bats are from the Halloween Frights stamp set in the mini. I cut them out and then adhered the chunky black glitter at the top...which you probably can't see *sad face*. I used a sheet of the Ghostly Greetings dsp as my place mat, Chills & Thrills rub-ons (and 1 rub-on from the Holiday Happenings bundle), Just Jawing stamp set, and the Batty for You stamp set. Pretty much everything was purchased from Ikea, except for the plate. They have these cool straws at Ikea and I used one of them in the picture...half of it is black and the other half is clear...so cool! Was just perfect for this project. So, I still envision a really awesome centerpiece for the table. Check back...I'm working on it. ;)

Did you stamp anything with gray? Leave me a comment, I'd love to see/hear about it!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by <3
