Tags 4 You, Pumpkins with Witch Hats

Is it a Trick or a Treat ?
no TRICK, just the TREAT of using the Tags 4 You 
stamp set in a new way.

I love the COLOR COMBO as inspired by this week's challenge

I used a Black marker to ink up the spider and then stamped it onto pumpkin pie and very vanilla card stock before punching the pieces for my pumpkins.

How about those Witch Hats! Fun huh?

Make your own using Modern Medley Designer Paper and the Petite Pennants Builder Punch. Punch the triangles of the hats in desired black and white print. Cut a 1/4" strip measuring about 1 1/2" long. Sponge the edges of the printed pieces with Crumb Cake ink to add some depth before applying the strip to the base of the large triangle. Apply a thin line of glue to the bottom of the large triangle and attach the 1/4" strip. With paper snips ,clip from the bottom outside corner of the strip to the point where the large triangle meets the strip on top ( you will be removing a mini triangle piece ).

Assemble pumpkins by punching card stock using the LARGE OVAL and SMALL OVAL punches. Sponge all pieces with crumb cake ink below assembling together.

Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit and Black markers were used to create the TRICK or TREAT sentiment panel. Just cut around the panel and sponge with Crumb Cake ink.

Now I finally had a chance to play with my NEW 

it's in the Holiday Catalog on pg. 20 (easy to miss seeing it )

This is a really cool marker and much easier to use than I thought it would be.
It's permanent ink, goes on very smoothly yet gives you that chalkboard look.
I knew I wanted to incorporate a spider web in my card and this marker came to my rescue. You can Draw the straight spokes of the web from the upper corner first and then draw in your curved webs starting at the wide end of the web. I really think the black TOP NOTE panel gives the spider web a lot more interest than if it were drawn on just a regular rectangle panel. What do you think?
