This was a cute little Halloween Treat Box that was made out of just 1/2 a sheet of Elegant Eggplant Cardstock! The fence image is the Frightful Fence Jumbo Wheel from the Holiday Mini. The Cat, bat and pumpkin images are all from the Halloween Frights set also from the Holiday Mini. The fence was stamped and embossed onto Glossy White Cardstock. The background was brayered with Summer Sun, and the moon was a 1-3/8" circle punched out of a Post-It Note and attached to the cardstock. I then brayered over the moon with Pumpkin Pie and Elegant Eggplant. I forgot to mention that you will do this before stamping the fence onto the cardstock. You then remove the "moon mask" and you will have a moon in your background!
This Halloween card was also quick and easy to make. The Only Orange piece of Cardstock was stamped with the Canvas Background Stamp in Basic Black. The Basic Black Cardstock piece was adhered to the very left of the Kiwi Kiss Card Base. The Only Orange was then ahdered to the very left of the Basic Black piece. Before attaching the Basic Black to the Old Olive, make sure you attach the Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon to the Only Orange and to the back of the Basic Black, then attach this to the Old Olive. I hope I didn't confuse you!
This festive card uses the Sentiment from the Elegant Cheer Set and the Tree from the Scandinavian Season Set in the Holiday Mini. The card base is made out of Riding Hood Red Cardstock. I didn't take a picture of the inside of the card, but I took the Scandinavian Wheel and rolled it down the center of the inside of the card. The tree was stamped in Always Artichoke ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and colored parts of the tree with a Blender Pen and Riding Hood Red Ink. The tree is next attached to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock and then added two Red Square Rhinestones (small and large) on the tree. Then I attached the Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon to the left of the Always Artichoke piece of Cardstock and used Snail to attach it to the back of the Always Artichoke Cardstock. Then I attached the tree to the Always Artichoke piece. Next, I stamped the Holiday Cheer Sentiment in Riding Hood Red onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock and punched it using the Designer Label Punch. I then took the Vanilla Hodgepodge frame and lay it over the Sentiment and attached the brads to the frame and cardstock. I then Snailed this onto the Artichoke Cardstock and attached the entire piece to the Riding Hood Red Cardstock.
This Sunday, Nov. 16 I will be having my First Annual Christmas Stamp-A-Stack! We will be making 10 cards, 2 each of 5 designs for $20. Get a jump start on your Christmas/Holiday Cardmaking and have some fun, eat some yummy treats and win some door prizes!

If you are unable to attend but would still like to make the projects let me know and I can send you the supplies you need for $20 plus the shipping fee!

As always, contact me if you have any questions!
The Bags I made above are actually called, Box in a Bag. They come together so fast using Designer Series Paper and cardstock. For these, I used the Ghostly Greetings Designer Series Paper, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black Cardstock. The image is from the Eat, Drink and Be Scary set available in the Holiday Mini Catalog. It was stamped using Basic Black in onto Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and punched out with the Small Tag Punch. The Basic Black layer is punched out using the Tag Punch. I then used the Round Tab Punch to punch the "handles" for each bag out of Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. I used the Black Grosgrain and Only Orange Grosgrain Ribbon to tie the bags closed. Oh, and I attached the tags to the ribbon using Fibers that are no longer available through Stampin' Up! Directions on how to assemble these bags can be found at Inking Addict. Scroll down towards the end of this post for details on how to make the candy bar wrappers!

This is a group picture of the goodies I made for the children from my school. We have a "No Candy" policy so the chocolate bars went to the teachers and the bags and pencils went to the children.
The Cello bags were made using the Medium Flat Cello bags and sealed with the topper made out of Pumpking Pie and Basic Black Cardstock. Again the tag was made using the Eat, Drink and Be Scary set from the Holiday Mini. I stamped the witches hat, onto Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Black ink and cut out then attached with Stampin Dimensionals. Like I said before, our school has a "No Candy" policy so the treat bags included Teddy Grahams, Play-Doh, a bug and some Halloween Shaped Marshmallows. The children and parents loved them!

And lastly, one of the funnest projects I made were these Frankenstein and Mummy Candy Bar Wrappers! I just love the way they turned out! And tucked in each one is either a fun size Kit Kat Bar or Hershey's Bar! I got the idea and instructions from again, the fabulous Angie Juda at ChicNScratch. Thanks for the idea Angie! The tutorial for the Mummy can be found here, and for Frankenstein here.
The Frankenstein is made out of Old Olive Cardstock and the hair using Basic Black Cardstock. I cut his hair out myself, just used the Paper Snips and cut jagged lines of different lengths. Very Easy. I drew in the nose and mouth using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. The eyes were made by punchin out the circles from Whisper White Cardstock using the 1/2" Circle Punch and punching out circles from Basic Black Cardstock using the 1/4" Circle Punch.
For the Mummy, I used Creamy Caramel and Very Vanilla Cardstock. The Very Vanilla is torn into different sized strips and sponged with Creamy Caramel Ink to give it an aged look. The eyes are made out of Whisper White and Basic Black Cardstock using the 1/8" and 1/4" Circle Punches.
All Supplies Stampin' Up!

Paper: Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black

Phew! Well, that's it. I hope you enjoyed looking at my samples. Stay tuned tomorrow for some more samples from a Holiday Mini Class I participated in. Until then, Happy Stampin'!

Today I'll be sharing some projects that I made through the Halloween Treats Class that the wonderful Angie Juda had available over at ChicNScratch. I love her blog, so do check it out when you get the chance! The projects were so much fun and easy to make, I had a blast! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed making them!
Here is a group shot of the projects that I made. Angie also had a Peppermint Patty Halloween Sandwich project and matching Cello Bag but as crazy as this sounds, I could not find any of the Peppermint Patties anywhere! I looked and looked, and found some square ones but not the round ones, which are what I needed. Well, if I find them I will make the final project and post it here. (crossing my fingers) Aren't the projects just great! I love the Frankenstein box!
Here's Frankie! He is so stinkin' cute I can't stand it! I had a blast making this box, and it came together quick and easy too! Now Angie provided all the supplies needed to create the projects (paper, accessories, etc.) but not the stamped images since it is against Stampin' Up! policy to do so. For the Frankie Box she even provided the wire for the handle!
Okay now for the details: the box is made out of Kiwi Kiss cardstock and the hair is made using Basic Black textured cardstock. The hair was provided already cut, but I believe Angie uses a scrapbooking template to cut the hair. If you wanted to, you could just as easily cut the hair freehand making sure to make jagged, long and short cuts. The white of the eyes is punched with the 1" circle punch out of Whisper White cardstock. The eyelids and nose are also punched with the 1" circle punch using Kiwi Kiss cardstock. Lastly, the black part of the eyes is punched using the 3/4" circle punch out of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the eyelids and nose with Stampin' Dimensionals, songed some Basic Black ink on them. Then I used the Signo White Gel Pen to make the eye accents. I recommend using Sticky Strip to assemble the box, to ensure that it doesn't come apart. The last step is to punch 1/8" circles on either side of the box, twist the wire around a pencil, pull it through and using wire pliers bend the ends. OH, I almost forgot his mouth! I used the Basick Black Stampin' Write marker to make his mouth, which is basically a "W". Quick and easy don't you think?!
All supplies Stampin' Up! (unless otherwise noted):
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black Textured Cardstock, Whisper White
Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, Signo White Gel Pen, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Sponge, Wire pliers and Rebar Wire (non-Stampin' Up!)
The final two projects were the Pillow Box and the Basket. Both items were made using the Big Shot and the Pillow Box die and the Baskets and Blooms Die. The Ghostly Greetings Designer Series Paper was also used for both projects. Again they came together rather quickly. For the tag on the Pillow Box you will need to punch out the large tag out of Basic Gray cardstock and the smaller tag out of Whisper White Cardstock. Before punching out the small tag, you will need to stamp your image from the Eat, Drink and Be Scary set. You will need to color in the image using Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black Stampin' Write markers, and then stamp unto the Whisper White. Once this is done, you will take your Small Tag Punch, line it up and punch. I then used my Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole at the edge of the tag and adhered a brad. Use black thread to attach the tag to the Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon around the pillow box. Again use sticky strip when putting together the pillow box to make sure it stays together. Also, make sure you fill the box with your goodies before sealing it up the ends!
The Basket has no stamping required! You just run the die through the Big Shot using the Basket and Blooms Die and Ghostly Greetings Designer Series Paper and assemble. Of course, remember to use Sticky Strip. Then add the Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, add your goodies and you're done! How quick is that?!
Oh, I almost forgot about the test tube! This was provided for us and I believe Angie bought them at Michael's they are from Martha Stewart and were available during Halloween. I'm not sure if they are still available. You just basically stamp your image from the Batty For You stamp set, onto Whisper White Cardstock using Green Galore ink and punch it out with the 1" Circle Punch. Then stamp the image again onto Green Galore cardstock using Basic Black ink and punch this out using the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. Attach the Frankenstein image onto the Green Galore circle and punch out a Scallop Circle out of Basic Black cardstock. Attach the first two layers onto the Scallop Circle using Stamin' Dimensionals. Take your Paper Piercing Tool and pierce holes in the center of each scallop. Then thread through the Black Grosgrain Ribbon, tie it around the test tube and voila! All that's left is to fill them with your goodies. I filled mine with M&M's but forgot to take a picture of it. Sorry!

I know I promised you pictures of the Halloween Goodies I made but I got sick on Saturday (I'm thinking it was food poisoning) and spent Saturday night and all of Sunday either in bed or over the sink (if you get my drift). I'll spare you the gross details.
I am feeling better today but not well enough to include detailed posts with pictures. I hope to be able to do that either tomorrow or Wednesday. Till then, check out the new promotions Stampin' Up! has for the month of November. You can find the flyers on the right.
