Fresh Squeezed Stamps--Stamp Your Background!

 Today I am sharing cards from my guest design over Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  This Happy Hexagon is definitely fun and versatile to play with!
I created  a calm and serene card with this set.
(Hexagon)-monochromatic
I arranged the assorted Hexagons on the acrylic block and then stamped the background. With the white embossed sentiment and paper flower,  this card was very easy to put together! I love the sentiment, so I had to add some some sort of stitching to it. Faux stitching is one of the techniques that I love to use time after time. I

Lastly, let's talk about Halloween.....it is Halloween today after all!
One of my lovely blog followers Chrystina sent me a card along with two crayons (cute idea!!) yesterday and asked: "What would you put on YOUR Halloween tree?" 
I took a photo of before and after...
I am all about candy corn (the tree topper) and purple bats (!?)
And my all time favorite Halloween candy is the good old-----> Oh Henry!

What a fun card, yours and the one from your friend! I haven't seen an Oh Henry in along time! My favorite Halloween candy is the small pack of twizzlers...somehow they are sweeter and fruitier than regular twizzlers.
