Halloween Puppy Treats!

Hello my sparkly friends!  It is a double post kind of day again...what can I say, I am a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type of crafter.  You just never know when I will be inspired or find a great challenge to try!  ;)

This project is for the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge that ends tonight.  Egads!  We are to create a 3D project with a pet theme.  Before I started, I found out that My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge 109 was a 3D challenge as well!  I was super-excited since I JUST received some stamps from Kimberly to play with!  Woot-woot a two-fer! 

Most of my Peachy stamps are faces, so I knew I wouldn't be stamping a pet.  I browsed my Cricut handbooks for a change instead...and saw a bone!  Inspiration struck, and here is what I put together...


It is a treat pouch for canine trick-or-treaters!  I used the Sarita Paper Packet from Close to My Heart for the background paper.  The black CS scalloped trim is made with the NEW Scallop Border Punch

How cute is that little doggie bone wearing a witch hat?  One of my favorite things about Peachy faces is that you can bring any item to life instantly.  :)  I cut this bone at 1.25 inches on Champagne CS from the Create a Critter Cartridge.  Then I used face parts from both Everyday Character Face Parts and Basic Paper Doll Faces to bring it to life.  To accentuate the Halloween theme, I added this adorable witch's hat!


The hat is from a retired Close to My Heart My Acrylix called Wicked.  It usually looks like this:





I changed it up a bit to be more simple and cheery (read: no spider, lol.)  My favorite addition is the green glitter paper band!  Save your scraps--you never know WHAT you might use them for!

Anyhow, I really wanted to play with my new Stampin' Around Fall stamps and the dies that go along with it.  I used my White Daisy, Black, and Sunset CS to add this little sentiment to the pouch. I added the white circle after tying on the button with twine and popped it up with foam squares.  :)


See that doggie bone pattern paper behind it?  I don't own a single piece of dog themed paper (no dog!), but I made it all my myself with the retired A Bowwow from CTMH.  It is SO easy to make your own pattern paper!  Have you ever tried it?

Thanks for stopping in to see my latest creation!   If you know some pooches that would like a treat pouch like this one, email me at mimimyselfandi@outlook.com and I will hook you up!
