I am excited to be hosting the current Crafty Friend Challenge. Since Halloween is just around the corner the challenge is a theme: Halloween. Anything that you can think of Halloween related. For my sample I filled an old Prima Flower bottle (washed it first, of course) with Candy Corn and made a matching card.

My latest order from My Favorite things included Lisa Johnson’s Primitive Pumpkins set. I thought it would be perfect for this challenge. First I decorated the bottle.

I started by stamping a background from Well Worn in Jet Black Archival Ink on Kraft cardstock, that had been cut with a die that came with that set.  Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut with another Well Worn Die-namics die. A frame from Well Worn set was stamped over it, then a sentiment from Primitive Pumpkins was stamped in it’s center. Three stars from that set were stamped to the label with Pear Tart Memento Ink.

The smallest pumpkin was stamped in Wild Honey Distress Ink on white cardstock, that had been cut with the matching die. A sour apple button was tied on the stem with  Linen Thread. The pumpkin was adhered to the label with  foam adhesive squares. A small hole was punched on each end of the label and it was tied to the bottle with linen thread, as well as adhered with two foam adhesive squares (to make sure it doesn’t slip).

White cardstock was cut with the Notched Tag die and stamped with the border from the Notched Tag stamp set.  A sentiment from the Primitive Pumpkins set was stamped in the tag along with some stars. Linen thread was tied on along with a Orange Fizz Button and tied around the neck of the bottle.

The card base of the matching card is a 3 1/2″ x 7″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. the star banner from Primitive Pumpkins was stamped to the left, with a sentiment and swirl on the upper right side with Jet Black Archival ink . The big pumpkin was stamped in black on white cardstock, the medium pumpkin in Pear Tart. Both were cut out and adhered to the card base with foam adhesive squares.  Another Orange Fizz button was tied to the big pumpkin and a knot out of Linen thread on the medium pumpkin finish off the card.

I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. If we have more then ten entries, I will give away two My Favorite Things sets with matching dies as well as a 6×6 pack. Every challenge entry is an entry for the raffle.
