House of Haunts Candy Holder

Look at the clouds in the background. I made a template by cutting a large scalloped shape across a piece if white cardstock. I started at the bottom of the white cardstock for the house and sponged over the template moving it around in different places using eggplant envy. Then I embossed the house from House of Haunts over the clouds with black. It really is a neat effect. The bat is punched out of black, pressed into the versamark pad, then embossed with iridescent ice. The words are from Tenny Tiny Wishes and punched out with the word window punch. I wheeled all over the pumpkin pie cardstock using the bat wheel. I used the top of a scalloped bag on the inside as a pocket to hold a piece of candy (the bags are in the new mini). There is a black brad on the front just under the house which hold down the front flap down.

Vampire Pillow Box

Want a bite? I had to pull out some Almost Amethyst to make this cute pillow box guy. After I cut and assemble the box I sponged around the edges with black ink.I made the hair with some black cardstock and a 1 3/8 cirlce punch. The eyelids are a small oval punched out, cut in half, then sponged with black ink. The eyes are punched from the 1/2 and 1/4 cirlce punches. The nose is 1/2 circle sponged with black. I used a piece of the discarded black circle punch from the hair to trace around to make the mouth using a black marker. His fangs are tips from the large star punch. He has candy inside.

Frankenstein Top Note Treat Box

Isn't he adorable? The top of the handle has Friend. Good. from Smarty Pants embossed in white on it. Very cute!! I cut 2 top notes out of old olive using the Big Shot. I sponged black around the edges. His hair was made from a piece of a black top note and styled to a nice bang length. His lids were punched from a medium oval punch and his nose was punched from the tab punch. Cut them both in half and sponge black around them, too. His eyes were punched from the 3/4 and  1/2 circle punches. I used the top of the ornament punch to make the spikes on his neck. Then I hand drew the scar and his mouth with a black marker. He will have a cello bag of candy sticking out of the top.

Pumpkin Poop Treat Box

 Give the gift of pumpkin poop! This basket was made with a 4x4 piece of pumpkin pie cardstock scored at 1 inch on two sides and 11/2 on the other two dies (assemble the box). Cut a 8 inch handle using the scallop ribbon punch, attach it to the inside of the box using red sticky tape. Punch out 5 medium ovals, sponge the edges with tangerine tango then lightly with chocolate chip. Layer them together like a pumpkin. Use the face from Autumn Harvest with black stazon. Cut a chocolate chip stem with the word window punch and some celery leaves with the little leaves die and your Big Shot. I cut them apart to get them around the stem. Attach them to the back of the pumpkin. Fill a small cello bag with candy corn and tie it off with some celery ribbon. Put it in the box. The poem was printed on the computer, cut out, then mounted on a piece of celery cardstock. It says, I started to carve a pumpkin With my carving knife and scoop. But the pumpkin got so scared, He took a little poop!

Batty For You Sucker Treat

This little treat is quick and easy. All you need is a 51/2 x 21/2 piece of cardstock scored at 5/8, 7/8, 3, and 31/2. Stamp it with the spider web from Wicked Cool with black stazon. Sponge around all edges with classic black ink. Stamp two spiders from Batty For You. Punch out one of the spiders out using a 1 inch cirlce punch, sponge the edge with razzleberry, then use a dimensional to attach it on top of the other spider. Add this to a 11/4 razzleberry circle. Add this to a black scallop circle. Use another dimensional to add this to the jacket. Use a 1/8 circle punch to add a hole for the stick (wiggle it in to get it to fit). Tie a razzleberry bow around the stick. Add some wiggle eyes for fun!

House of Haunts Treat Box

This Big Shot treat box (cut out of 12x12 black) was fun to make. I cut a piece of rich razzleberry cardstock, wheeled it with the jumbo bat wheel in black, then crimped it to fit around the box. I added a black handle with razzleberry brads. I cut and corner rounded a piece of old olive cardstock, and embossed the words in black on it. I sponged around the edges in black, too. I punched a large black scallop circle and used dimensionals to attach it above the words. For the moon I embossed the tree from House of Haunts on more mustard, punched it with the large circle punch,  and sponged the edges in black The shine really makes the tree pop. I filled a large cello bag with candy and tied a razzleberry ribbon around it. Now I have to put it on a locked cabinet so I don't eat the candy!

Wicked Cool Candy Bag Topper

Guess which set this is from? Yep, Wicked Cool.  This time I made a bag topper. I am using a medium cello bag stuffed with candy which I cannot buy right now because I will eat it... all. I cut the pumkin pie topper at 5x4 and scored it at 21/2. I stamped the shoes with black stazon and colored the stockings with a pumpkin pie marker. I punched it out with the small scallop punch and added a black layer behind it using the large scallop punch. I added a black bow with a glue dot. Then for fun I added the rhinestones to the shoes. I stamped the web all around the edges with black stazon. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the words straight.

Halloween Hoot Treat Box

Free kisss anybody? I cut a black treat box on my Big Shot ans quickly assembled it using red sticky tape. You need to use 12x12 cardstock with this die. I wrapped some black striped ribbon around it and taped it down under the picture. The handle is a 1x81/2 inch strip of black cardstock held in place with 2 pumpkin pie brads. The images are from Halloween Hoot stamped with black stazon. I used markers to color: daffodil, wasabi, celery, crumb, suede, pumkin, and bashful. I used the 3/4 and 1 inch circle punches for Free Kisses which is also popped up with a dimensional. I think I will put some carmel corn in a cello bag and tie it with an orange ribbon. Stinkin' cute!!

Just Believe

Just Believe is such a peaceful set. I punched a square out of white cardstock using the Scallop Square Punch. I laid that over my white cardstock and sponged Old Olive, Rose Red, then So Saffron on the side. Then I inked the flower stamp with Black Stazon and stamped over the sponged squares. I used the words from Three Little Words. I tied it with wide satin in Old Olive. Simple but elegant.

Owl Punch Ghost

Whoooooo knew the owl punch could be flipped upside down to create a ghost? This little bookmark was made in minutes! I cut two owl bodies and used dimensionals to hold them together. I added some wiggle eyes and ribbon.

Wicked Cool and Bat Punch

I am still playing with Wicked Cool. This time I used the spider web stamp and Classic Black Ink. The bats were punched with our Bat Punch. Then I used the White Gel Pen to make the eyes. I used Tangerine Tango and Pumpkin Pie cardstock along with white and black. The words are from All Holidays, sponged with Tangerine Tango. Since you can't write on black I actually cut a white base down by 1/4 and added the black to the back. The white flips open and has a spider web stamped inside.

French Foliage

If you live in the Memphis area and you are looking for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I would love for you to come and join us Saturday, Sept. 18th. We start stamping at 1:00. Call or email me for more details. There is always room for one more. We will be making 3 cards. Light snacks will be provided. This is one of the stamp sets we will be using. It is called French Foliage. No stamping skills necessary. Let me teach you the art of stamping. I used Garden Green, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, and Elegant Eggplant to make this card. The Pewter Jumbo Brads work great for weaving the Hemp Thread through. You need the Crop-A-Dile to set them.

Wicked Cool

Here is Wicked Cool again. This time I used Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, and Basic Black. The images are stamped with  Black Stazon and punched with the Square Scallop Punch. I sponged them with Razzleberry to add a touch of color.  I added one of our new Glitter Brads in the center of the images. These brads are very sparkly and much larger than the regular brads. The Old Olive piece has been embossed with the Spider Web using the Big Shot. I stamped spider webs on the Razzleberry base with Black Stazon.

Wicked Cool

I love this new Halloween stamp set. It is Wicked Cool working with all of the pieces. The new Spider Web embossing folder is also a great new addition. This time I used Concord Grape, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Basic Black. I stamped with Stazon and used a marker to color in the Pumkin Pie stripes and the boots and hat. Spooky is mounted with a Dimensional. I added 3 black brads and a little bit of Black Grosgrain for fun.

Big On Christmas

I love snow so I love this set. Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery are perfect together for this card. Remember to buy the special mailing envelopes if you want to send this card to someone.

House of Haunts

This 6x6 scrapbook page is for a swap I am in. I used Eggplant Envy for the background. I also used Pumpkin pie, More Mustard, Basic Black, and Old Olive. The tree and words are from House of Haunts. I stamped them in Black Craft ink and embossed them in clear. I had to cut apart the words. I used the bat punch for the bats and drew little eyes on them using the White Gel Pen. Everything is sponged around the edges in Basic Black ink.

Under The Stars

Here is another scrapbooking layout we did during the last scrapbooking class. We used the Big Shot to make the grass, and my Cricut to make the letters. Everything else is a Stampin' Up! product. The background is Chocolate Chip. The night sly is Pacific Point. The ground is Crumb Cake stamped with a speckled background stamp in Chocolate Chip. We did a lot of stamping and cutting using Under The Stars. The fire is the grass from the Tropical party stamped in Real Red on Daffodil Delight. The logs are cut from the Word Window punch stamped with the Wood Background stamp. The stars are from the small Star Punch. Let me know if you would like to come and scrapbook with us.
