Okay have you seen the amazing cards the DT has made so far? They're amazing you have to check them out HSC92 Gallery.
I kinda went the easy route on this one, but it was what popped into my head, so I went with it. I know it's just a circle, but I did try to make it look like the moon! lol I used glossy cardstock, and cut a circle with the 2nd largest coluzzle circle. Then I sponged on yoyo yellow in the middle and various shades of green going from lightest to darkest towards the edge. Then I ran it through the CB with the spots & dots embossing folder.
The Witch on Broom Riley was stamped on white, and coloured with copics.
Stamps: Witch on Broom Riley
Paper: glossy white, white, black, orchid opulence
Ink: noir black palette, yoyo yellow, green galore, certainly celery, old olive, always artichoke, orchid opulence
Accessories: circle coluzzle, spots & dots EF, sponges, circle punch, Martha Stewart punch, dimensionals, circle nestie
So what shape will you make?

I used the little battery operated tealights for safety. Sorry the pictures aren't too great, I was having trouble getting the light right!

I bought the glass jar at the Dollarama. I also found the wire mesh in the craft section at the Dollarama. I'm not sure if it was a great idea though, because the edges are sharp & I now have a few cuts on my hands! Maybe I should wrap it around the chocolate I shouldn't eat! LOL
OK so I used my stamp-a-jig and stamped the brick wall on 2 strips of white. Then I coloured them in with copics. By then my eyes were blurry and my hand was cramped!
I also stamped Mason Riley and coloured him with copics. I used nesties to cut the image, mesh & cardstock.
For the lid, I used the bricks & graffiti set. Then cut them out with nesites.
Stamps: Mason Riley, Brick wall, Graffiti
Paper: white, black, metal mesh
Accessories: copics, nesties,

I coloured the image with copics and added glitter with the star dust pen to the earrings and a bracelet.
The cardstock is sponged and the dp is from the Teen Angst pack from Memory Keepers.
The arrow was made with the sizzix curves ahead die. I used the 'Graffiti' set also from Hanna Stamps for the sentiment on the bottom. And keeping with the theme, I used safety pins as a stopper!
So what do you think?
I used the new Super Hero Hanna, and what better combo than super hero + Mom!
I coloured the image with copics, and you can't tell from the photo, but I added a bit of glitter from the stardust pen onto the highlighted bits of her outfit. I cut Hanna out, and only popped up her hair. You can see a close up of that in pic #2.
Rather than use a button as a stopper, I popped up the whole panel on the bottom to create an edge.
I'll be back with a couple more later!
Have a Great Day

Hello, I made this for the Friday challenge HSC90, on the Hanna Stamps forum. This weeks challenge is Hosted by Cindy Haffner, make a treat holder!
I hope it doesn't matter that I didn't use the Halloween theme!
This is the new Nurse Riley/Sophie from Hanna Stamps. She looks so happy, she'd cheer anyone up!
So here is a 2,5,7,10 box, you can find the tutorial here. I coloured the Nurse with copics and added a tiny heart gem to her name plate.
Now originally the front edge was beautiful, I had used a MS edge punch with a tiny scallop edge & tiny hearts. But when I used the hole punch for the ribbon, I didn't notice it was wrecking my beautiful edge leaves indents! So I decided to repunch it, but I was doing it the lazy way, with the box already full of mints & the end result looked like I did it while drinking & the hearts didn't line up! darn it! so since I was running out of flap! I made it straight & rounded the corners!
I made the window in the box with an oval coluzzle, then backed it with acetate.The glittery heart was made with the Martha Stewart punch. I also punched a heart from a dbl sided sticky sheet, put it on the cs heart & dipped it into red glitter. The Nurse & the heart are popped up.
So that's my story!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving

Ok so tonight I'm showing you how darn useful the Ribbon Riley is. I googled ribbon colours & their meaning, and found this great site Craft's n' scraps
These cards are pretty simple, I wanted the ribbon & colour to be the focus.
All the Ribbon Riley's were stamped onto white & coloured with copics. I matted each with the matching ribbon colour.
The card base is white and I scored 1/2" in of each side. The image panel is popped up, and the sentiment from 'Everyday Sentiments' was stamped in black.
