Waltzingmouse August Release Day 3

Thanks for stopping by!  It's the last day of new Waltzingmouse Release sneak peeks.  We're showing three more sets today:  Great Big Owl, Boo & Friends, and Peek a Boo Sentiments.  Today is all about Halloween!!!
This is the Great Big Owl - there are two owls and clever sentiments and sayings in this set that have lots of possibilities.  This one won't be used just for Halloween - it has all the necessary companion stamps to make a wonderful book mark or book plate, and let's face it - owls are wonderful all year round.  Yes there is a matching die for this guy as well!!  
I created a background from distress ink and then stamped the Great Big Owl with Versafine ink.  The branch and leaves are separate stamps so you can customize the look.    I embellished him with a few black gems and a sentiment added to his chest.
This sweet little witch ghost is from Boo & Friends Stamp set.  She is super cute and will delight one and all!  Wait until you see Boo and her other friends!  I paper pieced the background and fussy cut the witch ghost to add her into the scene.  The sentiment is from the Peek A Boo Sentiment Set.  
I made some simple treat bags with one of the sentiment stamps from Peek A Boo Sentiments. I think this one stamp is worth the price of the whole set.  I will be able to use it over and over all year round - not just for Halloween treats.
I dressed up simple paper bags that I got at the craft store.  I just folded a doily over the top flap of the bag (you can buy a package in the baking section of the craft store or cut some of your own) , and clipped on a tag that was stamped with the sentiment.  To fussy up the clothes pins I embellished them with glitter, and then hot glued a bow and a little embellishment.  They look like you made a fuss but were super easy. 

Ready to see more peeks of the new releases?  Here's a list of ladies with projects for you today.

I hope you will stop by tomorrow for a blog hop.  We'll be celebrating the release being made available in the store and giving away some prizes.
