September 2011 Release Day 4

It's day 4 of the September Release and today I am introducing our final stamp set for this month. If you are just joining us, you can catch up by starting from day 1 here. Today's set is an addition to the fantastic A Pocketful set that I introduced yesterday.

A Pocketful: Halloween

  • is a 4x6 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 11 stamps; 4 images and 7 sentiments/sentiment builders.
  • will be available for purchase September 5th for just $13

Are you ready for a couple of projects to better acquaint yourself with this set? First up is my not-so-scary Halloween card.

This card was so easy to put together. I started with the A Pocketful Die.

I then stamped the spider web stitching onto the pocket, embossed it in white, and added some real stitching around the edges. For the cream focal panel, I stamped the spiders in black and adhered the pocket below them with foam tape. I love how friendly these little spiders look! After assembling the card base, I added my sentiment "creep crawly Halloween wishes" and some stars.

This is my kind of fun and cute! Fun and cute, but still sophisticated. What do you think?

Next up, a fun tag that shows how these sets can be used as more than just pocket fillers.

Again, another one that came together in the blink of an eye. I started by distressing a white tag using Antique Linen and Tea Dye (Ranger Distress Ink). I stamped the flying bats from A Pocketful: Halloween directly onto the tag. I added some random stars from A Pocketful and layered some patterned papers underneath.

To finish off the tag, I added a tag using the "Batty" sentiment and a "for you" stamped strip, all from today's set.

Would you like to win A Pocketful, the A Pocketful Die, and A Pocketful:Halloween? Leave me a comment by 10:59 PM EST September 4rd to enter for a chance. I will select one random winner from all comments. Winners will be posted here.

Thank you so much for joining me this week! Our entire September release will be available tomorrow Sept. 5 at I will be back today at 6:00pm with the Full Reveal of everything previewed this week. Thanks again!
