Wickedly Fun Halloween Workshop

Hi Stampers!

Here are the very fun, cute, and wicked projects we made at my Halloween Workshop last Sunday. I am so happy to say that the gals loved all 3 projects, especially how easy and fast they were to create. I was looking forward to this workshop because I LOVE Halloween, especially creating projects with NEW Halloween Stampin' Up! products. So enjoy looking at the projects and feel free to Contact Me if you have any questions. =)

Group shot of the projects. Don't you just love them? ;o)

Here's the card we made. I right away knew I had to have this stamp set when I saw it in the NEW Idea Book & Catalog. Every year, when the new catalog comes out, I quickly turn to see what new Halloween goodies there are, and I'm never disappointed. This card is made using the Wicked Cool Stamp Set. I love, LOVE, this set. =)

Do you notice the fun background on the card? It's made using the NEW Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love these folders because they make it so easy to add texture to your card base! The gals loved how quickly they were able to do this.

The strip of paper is from the coordinating Wicked Fun Specialty DSP. This paper has 2 sheets that have flocking on them, the bats and the orange with black dots. That makes this paper even more fun! ;o) I CASED this card from Angie Juda, and just changed a few things.

Here is the inside of the card. I simply added a layer of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from the Wicked Cool Stamp Set. This way, it makes it easier to write a message to your recipient. =)

Here's the Pillow Box we made. Inside are a couple of Hershey's Nuggets. Another quick and fun project. After the workshop I realized that I could have embossed the cardstock with the Spider Web Embossing Folder to make it even more fun. Wish I would have thought about it beforehand! =( But, Halloween is still a few weeks away so I still have time to play. ;o)

The tag is made with the Scaredy Cat image from the Batty for You stamp set. This set is fun because it comes with eight different images and you can quickly make a bunch of the pillow box candy goodies with matching tags. Quick note, it turns out that the Pillow Box die that is in the NEW catalog is different from the one I currently own. Sizzix updated the die and the flaps are now easier to open and close. So you will notice that when you order yours. I am seriously thinking about getting myself the new one. =)

And last, but certainly not least, the Fall Owl M&M baggies! Aren't these adorable!! I love, LOVE Owls and when Stampin' Up! came out with the NEW Owl Punch, it was one of my first purchases. I simply cannot get enough out of it, and it is so easy to use and assemble the pieces! I participated in a bulk buy with some other demonstrators to get the cute skinny bags that M&Ms are in. Aren't they cute? If you'd like to order your own, you can go to to get some.

I initially wanted to use the Halloween M&Ms that I had bought last year, but I was not able to find them at any of the stores I went to this year. Last year, they were purple, green, orange, and black. They coordinated perfectly with the Wicked Fun DSP colors. But, I went to 4 different stores and didn't find them. =( So I found these fall colored M&Ms and just switched out my ideas. They turned out to match perfectly with our More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red cardstock. =)

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit and looking at the cute and fun projects we made. Just a reminder, that Oct. 18 is the last day to join my Stampin' Up! Family and receive the Green House Gala Craft Tote for free! I love this tote, and it's size. I take it to all my workshops! Have a great Sunday and

Happy Stampin'!
