Thoughtful Branches & More {Bite Me}

Kids, kids, brain is on overdrive at the moment. There are days that I just wake up with crazy ways/ideas to use my different stamps, dies & punches I own. This is the case many times. However, there is another way I get my creative juices flowing. All products Stampin' Up!

I wanted to make a vampire face this morning. The first thing I did was to google vampire clip art. After browsing through the clip art, I started seeing pieces & parts of the face that I had dies for. I thought an Old Olive pumpkin-y look might be fun, so this card is the result of those ideas and my internet browsing. 

The base of the pumpkin is from the Thoughtful Branches bundle, it is the leaf canopy. The stem is also from that die set. The eyes are from the new Christmas Pines bundle. It is a bow turned upside down! The fangs and nose are a trimmed down flag banner that is in the Balloon Framelits dies. I colored the hair with a Stampin' Up! Basic Black marker. 

The Thoughtful Branches bundle is only available until August 31, but if they run out before that day gets here, it will be too late anyway. I have done several different samples with that set. Click here to see them. 

The Christmas Pines bundle will be available September 1st from the new holiday catalog. 

The Balloon Framelits dies are available right now. 

Just remember that the Thoughtful Branches bundle is available until August 31 and you will be able to order the Christmas Pines bundle on September 1.
