My First Blog Hop With Some WICKED COOL Projects

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to be in a blog hop!  I hope that you have a chance to hop along and see some really cool projects.  Everyone involved in this hop is from Team Chic n' Scratch and we have all created cards or other items using a new stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog! (If you still need a catalog, send me an email.  If you purchase one you will get a free stamp and Stampin' Spot!)

Please hop over and check out the previous blog Danielle and the next blog: Tracie

Now here is a closer look at my projects. I just couldn't wait to use the new set:  Wicked Cool.  Here is a pic of that set.  I really like using the clear mount stamps.  This set is $14.95 for the clear mount and $19.95 for the wood mount. 

For the first card I used the bats as a small background and then I used my marker on one single bat to stamp beside the Spooky sentiment. I used my paper piercer and mat pack to make the holes under the Spooky. 

For the second card I embossed the spider webs with black craft ink and I cut apart the stamped sentiment then I popped them up.  Here is a closer look at that:

For my last project using this new set I made this cute little treat bag!  I, of course, had to use my owl punch somewhere! I will post a tutorial on this treat bag on Monday.  Please stop back! :)
