CSS Take The Challenge - Get Punchy

Well it is the 1st Tuesday of the month and that means a new TAKE THE CHALLENGE presented by CLEAR AND SIMPLE STAMPS BLOG. This month's challenge is to get PUNCHY. And these darling Trick Or Treat Baskets are just too fun and easy to make more. I used my square and circle punches for the jack-o-lanter face. I also used a TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - 5 Layer Buttons. I love making these darling buttons. I punched 10 pumpkins in a dark orange cs glued 5 of them together, punched holes with the crop-a-dile then covered the top layer with crystal effects. After they dried I tied them to the basket handles and basket. Aren't they darling?

With 7 grandchildren I need a lot of treat baskets to make them all happy. LOL. I decided to make another one. Whoo Hoo these sure are fun. Come on try one... For this one I used my Stampin Up Designer Label Punch to make the tag. I also punched a hole for the split ring and for the brad holes with my cropadile punch. I randomly stamped the 4 different jack-o-lanter faces in black on the orange textured cs. This time I used the same paper for the basket, handle and circle bottoms.
Also this time I shredded some green paper for my confetti for the inside of the basket. I tied some black gingham ribbon around the top and used some green brads to hold the handle to the basket.

And what trick or treat basket would be complete without some yummy candy?

Here is my 2nd sample for this fun challenge. I decided to use my Martha Stewart Witch and Cauldron paper punch and my Nestability Label Seven that to me looks like a book so I made the inside of a Witches Brew Recipe book. I used Bewitched Stamp Set from Clear and Simple Stamps recent release. On the cauldron I added some Polymark Green Irradescent Fabric Paint bc a witches brew should be green right? I love these new fall/halloween sets from CSS and hope you do too. Would you like to play along? Make something using any type of punches and include TTC10 in your keyword on SCS or tag in Paper Craft Planet. Come on and play along, we would love to see what you come up with.
