Spooky Syringe Pen Treat Card

When I saw a fellow demonstrator use one of these pens on her cute project I knew I had to have some.  I got mine on eBay but I've seen them on Amazon as well.  Mine write in black, but some write in red.  These would make cute gift for a doctor or nurse.

The pen holder was made by cutting a piece of Whisper White Card Stock 2" x 6 1/4".  I scored at 1 1/2,  2 1/4, and 3", and punched a 1/2" circle in the ledge which is where the pen will be held – hopefully the pictures will tell the story.

I didn't want stamping on the ledge so I folded the pieces with the holes to the back while I stamped the drip in Real Red (it is my favorite stamp in the Ghoulish Grunge set)– again I hope the picture explains adequately.  Clearly this would be easier to show in a video and I may get to that soon.

I stamped the drip from Gorgeous Grunge in Real Red on the bottom of the white panel and again in the corner of the card base.  The splat behind trick or treat is also from Gorgeous Grunge. I just got the Labeler Alphabet and used  it to stamp the letters for "Trick or Treat" in Tuxedo Black on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.  That set is going to be fun – this is the first, but certainly not the last, time I've used it.  Makes me want to dig out my old Dymo label maker!  Remember those?

The card base is Whisper White Thick – you'll want the thickness to help support the weight of the pen.  This card fits snugly into the clear envelopes. Those clear envelopes CAN be mailed and you get 50 for $5.00.  I won't mail these, they will be handed out in person!

I hope I've inspired you to start creating!  I'd love you to choose me as your demonstrator and order your Stampin' Up! supplies from my store.  When you order be sure to use the October Host Code 7ZKGME4F  when your order is $149 or less.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
