Sweet Hauntings - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

I am having a hard time believing that school is back in, let alone that Halloween will be here before we know it. But it is time to think about Halloween and to get excited! For some, Halloween is a huge holiday! We have a few homes in our neighborhood that start decorating at the beginning of October (I usually get to it on October 30th). I have been known to throw a big Halloween party (or two), I make Halloween treats and crafty decor and I never miss a chance to dress up!

The Artisan design team assignment this week was to use the Sweet Haunting's Stamp Set.

Halloween is an exciting time with you are in Elementary school. There are always class parties and all of the kids dress up for the celebration. Many parents send little treats for the kids to enjoy. In fact, some of these treats have turned into loots bags!! I can not believe the load that the kids bring home! After that, there is really no need to go trick or treating. (They would never let that happen though).

My thought this year was to create a Halloween-tine ... a small postcard, valentine style, card.

You can have your children write their names on
the back of each Halloween-tine. My son was
not cooperating this afternoon for this post, so I 
had to do the work for this image. 

I have been addicted to my Aqua Painter and watercoloring lately (thanks to the blog post I did with the Market Fresh Stamp Set). This set was so easy and cute to color with my Aqua Painter!

Of course you could get the kids involved with the creation. They could color the bottles, punch the shapes, add the adhesive. Well, maybe not ... I am too much of a control freak to leave the coloring up to them! Perhaps they are better at punching. Oh wait ... they would not punch efficiently and that gorgeous Black Shimmer Paper could go to waste. Okay ... adhesive. They can add dimensionals to the backs. Yes, dimensionals are a perfect job for the kids.

If you are the parent that wants to send a little treat with your Halloween-tine, I have the perfect solution. Pop a treat in a medium clear envelope, seal it up and staple it to the card. Boom!

I love these Halloween-tines so much that I am adding a NEW HALLOWEEN-TINE CLASS to my calendar! Watch for more information coming soon and save the date - October 14th, 2015 at 7pm!!
