Pixie Stick Invitations
Kraft cardstock folded in half, cut into strips and glued on the edges forms this little pixie stick holder.  I first ran it through my printer to print the party info and each kiddo's name.  Finish with a knot of ribbon and a felt pumpkin.  Cute, inexpensive and still homemade!

No fall would be complete without a trip to the punkin' patch.  Big...small...round...tall...we like them all!  Even the little, little, little, bitty ones! 

These were  a recent special order.  I love how they turned out.  They are for twins that are only a week or two old!  So no scary stuff here, just sweet, happy pumpkins with sweet candy corn and only a little bitty "Boo".

Simple Masking


2 Pieces of Scrap paper
hole punch (I used 1 1/4")


First punch a circle out of one of your pieces of paper.  This will become your "stencil" or "mask".


Using your sponge, press it onto your ink pad to load your sponge with ink.  Then using either a pouncing or circular method.  Apply the ink to your stencil.  Being careful to not go off of the stencil or mask.  I found using a pouncing application or the swirl, gives it the best effect.  Hold your mask nice and tight.


Lift your mask and you should have a nice round ink mark.

I then added a witch stamp inked up in black and stamped directly onto my masked image.  

This process could be used for many different things.  

Have Fun Masking!
