A Halloween Treat

I created this box for my make and take for my September workshops.  Using the Matchbox die made this project super easy!  My guests loved using the Big Shot to create this box.

I first had them cut the box bottom from Pumpkin Pie and the top out of Basic Black card stock.  I had them fold the crease lines to the top then they ran it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  They assembled the top then smooched it with Silver Smooch.  The tag is cut from the same die.  You get three different tags along with this die.  So versatile.

They stamped the spider web on the tag then stamped ‘have a Wicked halloween’ on Pumpkin Pie then punched with the 1″ circle.  To pop up the sentiment they used a Stampin’ Dimensional and adhered off center so you could see the spider web.

For an extra elegant touch I had them add the Black Satin ribbon with mini glue dots and voila! An easy treat box.  My workshop guests then filled it with Hershey kisses.  The box is so elegant you can give them to Halloween dinner guests.  Of course the possibilities are endless for this box and can be made to fit the different holidays.  Have fun creating these boxes.

I have also submitted my treat box for the Challenge #10 Halloween Theme challenge from Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings blog.  So much fun!

A Haunted Spooky Dresser

I’ve become addicted to creating spooky dressers.  In my previous post I created a witch in the dresser.  Today I created a haunted dresser.  I love the Wicked Cool stamp set and Two-step Owl punch.  The punch is so versatile.  You can create penguins, witch owls, tulips bats and ghosts.  For this card I created the bat and ghosts from the owl punch.  The bat tutorial comes from Bonnie Mountford’s blog. I got the idea for the ghosts from Diane Carr.     See my previous post to link to Jackie Topa’s dresser tutorial and for Patti Lee’s blog link.

I have also submitted my card for the PPA60 Halloween Inspiration challenge.  Stop by and take a look at all the fabulous Halloween cards.

Witch in a Dresser and did I mention Fort Worth Regional

When I saw this card on Patti Lee’s blog I had to CASE it.  The template for this side step dresser card comes from Jackie Topa.  Click here for Jackie’s tutorial video for how to create this type of card.  I used the same colors and Wicked Cool stamp set Patti used.  Since I do not own the Curly Label punch I used the Tab punch instead and black Glimmer Brads I received at the Fort Worth regional.

Which leads me to mention I attended Stampin’ Up’s! Fort Worth Regional this past  Saturday.  It was a lot fun, informative and Shelli Gardner provided  inspiration.  We all need from time to time a reminder of what we need to be doing to achieve our goals.  There were some very talented demonstrators and SU home office staff present awesome projects and techniques.  This was my first SU event and loved it.  I was hoping to trade some of my Witch Halloween cards before the session started but due to a freeway closing did not arrive to the convention center early enough.  However I was able to trade throughout the session.  I will post  the cards I received in the next few days.  All I can say is the Fort Worth regional left me wanting more which is why I have made it a goal to go to convention.  If you’re a demonstrator and have not attended an SU event consider doing so.  You’ll be glad you did.  Now onto my card.

By the way I have also submitted my card to PPA60 Halloween Inspiration Challenge.  They have some great cards posted by the design team.

Wicked Halloween

I just received  the Halloween stamp set Wicked Cool and I had to use it for the shaving cream technique challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The tutorial for this technique can be found on SplitcoastStampers.   I had never tried this technique before because I thought it would be complicated but it’s not.  It was easy peasy and so much fun!  This is now one of my favorite techniques.  I used Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie ink to create the swirls in the shaving cream.  Each corner was stamped with the spider web and heat embossed with black embossing powder.

I stamped the hat and sentiment on Pumpkin Pie and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The shoes were stamped with Basic Black ink on Whisper White and sponged with Rich Razzleberry.  The bats were stamped on the cape with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The template for the cape is below with card recipe.   I used taffeta Pumpkin Pie ribbon and black rhinestones on the cape.

I’ve also submitted this card to PPA60 Halloween Inspiration challenge.  Stop by and take the challenge.
