Stampin' Celebration #59

It's October 1st, and that means it's time for another Stampin' Celebration challenge!  Once again we have another awesome inspiration piece.  Something I really liked about this one is all of the different textures. . . felt, ribbon, leather, wood. . . So as I went about making my projects I tried to add a lot of texture.  

The colors I picked were Going Gray, Poppy Parade (a discontinued color), and Baja Breeze.   I used the Monster Munchies stamp set and put together a little Halloween party ensemble.  To start it off, here's the invitation

This is a simple pocket card.  This doesn't 'fold' anywhere though. . . it is two piece of 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" Going Gray card stock.  I scored one of them at a diagonal and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  I didn't glue either side of the pocket closed. The ribbon keeps the left side closed, and the right side of the pocket is open--making it easier to get the inside slider (with party info) in and out.

The cups are pretty simple.  I stamped with Going Gray ink, use a marker to color in the outside ring, added the googlie eyes and ribbon, and then adhered to the cup with dimensionals.  
And last but not least, the plastic ware holder was made using the Petite Pocket die.  I just ran it through the Big Shot a second time with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and then put it together as you usually would.  

I used the Faux Suede technique on all of the Baja Breeze card stock I used in these projects--since I was going for lots of texture.  If you aren't familiar with this simple technique, you can see another sample and ready about it HERE.  

Now it's your turn to be inspired and play along with us this month at Stampin' Celebration! You have until October 25th to create a card, 3D item, digital item, scrapbook layout, etc. using the inspiration piece above. Link your creation to the Stampin' Celebration blog so we can see your project. We will choose the "Pick of the Party" at the end of the month. We can't wait to see what Stampin' Celebration inspires you to create!
