Prettiest 'coffin' ever!!

This might be the prettiest coffin I have ever seen~ LOL! It doesn't look 'spooky' at all!! Very appropriate that I used the RIP image from the Toxic Treats stamp set.  Aren't they cute??

Not sure how well you can see in the photo the shimmer...but before it was embellished I spritzed the Basic Black CS with the Log Cabin (just like dirt...get it??). I have had SO much fun over the last several days making Halloween goodies. These were inspired/CASED from Selene Kempton who presented them at the Providence, RI Stampin' Up! Regional event. This Petal Cone die can be used for lots of ideas...a MUST have in my opinion. Examples: carrot, chinese take-out box, ice cream cone, the ever so cute 'coffin' and more!! Order yours today!!

Last Friday night I hosted a Stamp Camp and the customers who brought a new stamping friend received this favor as a special treat from me. Aiden (my youngest) has asked if this is what I can make for his classmates for Halloween...he has about 19 kids in his class and this is the perfect treat. Thanks Mr. 'Big Shot' for making this momma's life easy! During Stamp Camp my friend Sherri heard me say "Easy Peasy" (which I say alot) 'Easy Peasy Lemon Squeasy' or is it SQUEEZY? . Well...this project is just that! Check out her tutorial and try for yourself!!
