Making up for lost time!

Echo, echo, echo. 
Me + blogging = nonexistent lately! 
Not sure why, but TODAY I have NEW goodies to share with you! The special release stamps from TSOL this month are FUN FUN FUN!!!! These two projects feature the new Halloween set.  It's a solid set, which I LOVE, because I am not the biggest, or best colorer (is that a word?) No fancy markers in this house (although, I'm pining for the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers!!!)
Okay, so anyway, a quick easy card. . .featuring Stephanie Barnard's new Colorbox ink from Clearsnap! (LOVE IT!!!)
On the treat can, I didn't have much luck stamping RIGHT ON the can (although the stars are stamped directly on it) but I stamped the pumpkin on orange cardstock, and adhered it to the can, which was WAY easier!!! I used Clearsnap Mix'd Media Inxs and embossed it.  LOVE the way this ink embosses!
The can is filled with candy corn (just don't tell anyone that it's LAST YEARS candy corn, and it went immediately in the garbage after I took this picture!) ha! It will be filled with NEW candy corn when I try to sell it at my church's craft fair next month!!!!

SO there you have it, head on over the The {Stamps} of Life to check out the amazing samples in the gallery, and to see the full sets for sale!!!!!  And then head over to the ShinHan Touch Twin marker blog, for info about their new CHALLENGES. . .you (I mean I) could win some MARKERS!!!! On second though, DON'T go. . .it gives ME a better chance of winning! {giggle giggle!}

Nancy, the only reason it was left, was because it was in one of LAST year's embellished treat cans. And it got packed away with my cards and projects. Ewww.
