Ghosts on a stick....

Hey guys, we're at 41 posts!  Woohoo, looks like we'll make it to 50 so stay tuned for my recipe card for Pumpkin Blondies tomorrow.

And someone asked, "Also, will there be a Holiday/Christmas stamp set that comes out soon to go with the Friendship Jar set?"  Well, well, well..........three holes in the ground.  (My dad always says that)........so you want a holiday Friendship Jar set.  That would require like a bo-zillion comments before I could make commentary on that question.  I guess you'll have to wait and see........

Hi friends, what's up today?  I felt like playing hooky all day....where does one escape to when you don't want to work but you work from home???  That is the question.  

So I went ahead and made this card...it was fun work so that is okay.  :)  I hadn't used the adorable little ghost image from Friendship Jar Fall Fillers yet so I got it all inky today.  I also got my hands on some of The Girls Paperie Toil and Trouble Halloween collection at Scrapbooks, Etc in Topeka, Kansas over the weekend.  I knew they had the paper and when I saw it in person it was one of those *elbows out, nobody come near this paper while I shop* moments. It's that good and I love it that much!
My first line of business while making this card was to stamp the sticks and ghosts first, then color them with my handy dandy Copic Sketch markers.  The colors I used were:  W00, W1, W3, YR18 and E30.  If you live near Topeka, you can get your Copic markers at Scrapbooks, Etc too.  Gotta love and support our local shops.  :)  Tell them Mish sent you.

Annnd, I digress but you also gotta love fresh goodies out of the oven.  I had to run up and grab me a Pumpkin Blondie.  Jordan is home from school today but is better now so we did a little baking.  If I receive 300 comments on this post, I will post the recipe tomorrow.  Along with a recipe card.  :)  Okay, may 50 comments.  50 comments would be good.  

Back to the card.  It just dawned on me today that you don't have to make the jars look see through.  Why not die cut a jar with patterned paper, stamp the jar outline and call it good.  I think my black and white jar looks very chic and decoupaged.  Will definitely try this look again.   For the jar embellishments, I used a ziggy zag jar topper die cut and a matching gingham label with stamped sentiment, all with the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers line.  The Baker's Twine is Chocolate from PTI. Buttons are PTI's Terracotta Tile.
 For the inside of my card, I embellished it with scraps of the patterned papers, some PTI sentiments and my Orange Soda Carnival Tickets. The carnival tickets use more Fall Fillers stamps...the eyeballs and the 5 cent eyeball stamps.
Hope you enjoy my Halloween card today.  It's almost October, have you started with your Halloween projects yet?

Would love the recipe..... I also really like the jar made from patterned paper. Good job, Mish!

BerylLeonard said...

I always find new things to buy when I see your cards! But I already have those stamps and dies, so I don't have to wait to make a card this time. (Not an exact copy, just with yours as inspiration. I want a bunch of googley eyeballs in my jar.)

Karen said...

Cute, cute card. I love it when you show the insides of your cards, they are just as pretty as the outside. Hoping for the recipe.

OMG I was thinking that ghost card is adorable and then you distracted me with the thought of a Pumpkin Blondie.. Please share that recipe.. I have to get my hands on this cute set!

Donna K said...

I have had so much fun with the jar stamps and matching dies. I didn't get the Halloween stamp set but I've managed to come up with so many ideas for the jars anyway. Your card is very, very cute.

Kelly in Canada said...

i love the way you make the inside of your cards so inviting. i am definitely going to try this more often and i will credit it all to you. the paper is great, too.

dolcreations said...

I love this card! Your right you do not need to make your jar clear...thank-you for inspiring us once again! Pumpkin blondies sound awesome! PLEASE share your recipe!!!!!!

Janice said...

I don't comment nearly as often as I should and for that I am sorry. Your blog is one my main sources of inspiration! Thank you so much for all that you share and teach us. I hope you get the amount of comments you are looking for to post the recipe! LOL

Lynn said...

love the look of the jar on patterned paper, wouldn't have thought of that! I think the jar set and fillers are my fav stamp sets right now. Can't wait to see what kind of fillers come out for Christmas!

mamajulie said...

I love blondies, but I've never had pumpkin ones. Are you able to get pumpkin? It's been gone from around here since last holidays. I have one can that I'm hoarding for Thanksgiving, but IF I can get some and IF a well-known blogger posts her recipe, I would try pumpkin blondies.

Tess said...

I get so excited about visiting your blog everyday. I just can't wait to see what your next project that you have been working on. I get all of my inspiration from you. Please keep posting these wonderful projects because without you, I would not have any inspiration. Again thank you!!!!

Tami McBeain (tmarie) said...

So much goodness, you crack me up with your sayings girlie! Can I post 50 times in a row so we can look forward to your recipe?

Lorri W. said...

Thank you for your inspiration...would love to see your pumpkin blondie recipe. Also, will there be a Holiday/Christmas stamp set that comes out soon to go with the Friendship Jar set? All of your projects using the set have been wonderful!

Priscilla Heistad said...

Super cute card. I appreciate all of your inspiration. I work from home too, but not doing a fun job like you do. I can't escape either, so I procrastinate. Not a very good coping mechanism; creates more problems!

Elizabeth V. said...

Pumpkin blondies? Sounds yummy!! The next item on my table is some felt, paper and flower dies to make embellishments for fall cards. I loved the ones you made last week...thanks for sharing the cute idea!

Love this card. I so hope you come out with the Christmas set too. I have both regular and the Halloween set. It wont be complete without the Christmas set. :) I LOVE how you embellished the inside too.

jbuffan said...

Good Morning Mish,
LOVE this card even though I am not a fan of Halloween. I do enjoy the colors of the season and absolutely MUST get the mason jar and fillers. I have had it on my wish list for far too long.
Thank you for sharing your creative brain with us , it amazes me that you continue to think of all these adorable ideas day after day.
God Bless you today.
