Boo to You

Hope your are having a great week so far.
Today is the 1st Tuesday of September and
 over at Craft-Dee BowZ that means its Inspiration Tuesday. 
Usually I post an inspiration piece on the 1st Tuesday 
and the other designers post on a Tuesday throughout the month as well.

OK,  let me share with you my Tuesday inspiration piece.

This card design came about because of an art piece I saw at a home goods store.
It really appealed to me. (Obviously - LOL)

See that background paper??? That gray and white patterned paper. 
Well I had some paper that was this design but it was pink not gray.
Well I put that DP in my copier and copied it as a B &W 
and the B&W selection on the copier gave me exactly what I was wanting.
I trimmed it and used it as a layered piece over a dark gray cardstock.

My pumpkin is an old die from Accucut and it's still available. 
It comes with eyes a nose and a mouth and a leaf. 
I will use the other pieces some other time. 
I cut the pumpkin out and then cut another center piece. 
I used my paper shaper to shape the end parts of the pumpkin 
and that extra center piece. 
I added foam tape to the extra center piece and 
attached it over that center area on the main pumpkin shape. 
It gives the pumpkin dimension. I also inked the edges using gray ink.
I added a bow and this is the end result.

OK after I made that card, I thought that pumpkin would be cute on a handle bag. 
Perfect to use that bag for Halloween Trick or Treating. 
I decided to make a bag topper
Here is what this finished up as.

This looks so cute.
Same pumpkin - same background paper and I just mounted it on a extra large label shape
 and added some pretty leaf ribbon . 
I added a slit to that label shape and slid it down on the front bag handle. 

You can see the slit and the fold spot right above the stem

Paper/Card Stock: DP copied to make gray/white. Orange CS, Black CS, Green CS
Ink: Memento - Gray Flannel
Dies Used: Recollections - Alphabet, Accucut - Pumpkin #5, Spellbinders- Grand labels Four
Ribbon, Craft-Dee BowZ  tool, dimensional foam

I am submitting my projects in the following challenges:

OK that's it for today. 
Hope you might try making a bag topper. 
They are easy to make 
and really dress up a plain gift bag.
