Night 3: 13 Nights of Halloween -Stampin' Up! Style

Hey everyone! I hope this finds you well, and your weekend has gone nicely.  There is nothing that says Halloween more then spooky cats.

For this third project we will create a quick cute card that utilizes our amazing note cards and our Spooky Cat Bundle.

Spooky Cat Note Card Steps
1) Select your choice of spooky night designer series paper and trim it down so it centers the middle of your note card.  The width is truly your option, however, you want to make sure there is an overlap when you adhere the sentiment.
2) Next take a piece of whisper white cardstock and stamp in basic black ink your cat from the spooky cat stamp set, and your Halloween sentiment from the Labels to Love stamp set.
3) make sure to clean each stamp when you are done using stampin mist and the stampin scrub.
4) Next cut a piece of Vintage Crochet trim and wrap it around the whole card through the inside of the card and tie a bow.
5) Next adhere your DSP down the center of the card.
6) Take your two stamped images and now add them on the card as shown above.
7) Congratulations! Your card is done.

Sometimes simple, easy, on the go cards work best.  This card allows you to make 20 of them in no time at all, and because note cards come with envelopes, they are all set and ready to go.

Stay tuned for tomorrows fun project that has been turned out to be a HUGE hit!!  Video fun tomorrow. Until tomorrow night....Have a BOOtiful night!

Night 2: 13 Nights of Halloween -Stampin' Up! Style

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying this magical Saturday.  For our second day of spooky fun, we are going to create a fun pumpkin treat holder, that supports two chocolate nuggets or candy treats in it, and makes a perfect Trick-or-Treat gift.

As a reminder, the list of supplies will be at the end of this post. Let's get started.
1) You will use the Hardwood background stamp set
2) You will use the Everyday Jar Framelits.

3) Of the framelits, you will only use these three pieces.

4) Next you will need a some pumpkin pie and basic black cardstock, and some fun Designer Series Paper (DSP), if you are doing nuggets for the treat holders.  If not you can pass on the DSP.
5) You will start by cutting down a piece of pumpkin pie cardstock to 3 1/2 x 3" piece. This is for your little box that will hold the treats.

6) Next you are going to score this piece of cardstock at the following measurements.  On the 3 1/2" side you will score at 1" & 2 1/2".  Then you will flip to the 3" side and score at 1" & 2"

7) Once you have scored this piece you will make cut lines on the two short ends.

I also notch out a little sliver as it creates a nicer look when you assemble them.

8) Next you will fold down all the scored pieces and start to mold your box.

9) Next you will use Fast fuse and add some adhesive to the two corners, flip up the center piece and adhere them to each other to create the little box.

10) Next I used Crumb cake ink and inked up the Hardwood stamp, ink to stamp.  This means take your ink pad to your stamp instead of taking your stamp to the ink.

11) Next you will lay your next four pieces that will be used to cut out your jars. Two pieces must be cut to 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" and two pieces are to be cut at 2 3/4" x 2"...these are to be in pumpkin pie cardstock. You will also need to cut two 1"x 4 1/4" basic black pieces to cut the lids out.  Please do this at this time.

12) After you have stamped all four pumpkin pie pieces you will run them through the big shot with the basic black strips as shown below.

I like to turn my framelits on an angel when there is room as it keeps heavy pressure from coming straight on the framelit, yet still distributes the cut perfectly.  Here I ran both pieces of cardstock for each set at the same time.

13) Next you will Add some shimmer to the black lids using some Wink of Stella.  This one of my favorite accessories to have on hand.

14) Next you will start to assemble all the pieces by adding fast fuse to the base of each jar, and to the black lids.

15) Adhere the boxes to the center and bottom of the jars.  Make sure to add a small bit of adhesive to the top of one of jars as shown below.

Here is where you may add your nuggets or treats and then press the centers together so it looks like the below photo.

If you are going to add some Hershey nuggets, cut your DSP at 1' x 3" and add them around the nugget.  Two will fit piled up in the small pumpkins and three will fit in the large one.

When you have assembled them add some linen thread to the top and tada.....pumpkin treat holders.  If you look closely you can see spooky faces in the wood grain used from the hardwood background stamp. 

I hope you have enjoyed this fun filled tutorial for these adorable pumpkin treat holders.  See you tomorrow evening.  The product list is below. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.  Thanks for stopping by.
