Cutest Little Witches Hat Ever!

 

Halloween-curvy-keepsake-box-treat-witches-hat-stampin-up-pumpkin

You probably remember my recent trip to St. George, UT for the Stampin' Up! Founder's Circle trip... well, while I was there I was thrilled to be invited to stamp with Susan Adams and Janet Baker at Susan's home!  It was so much fun!  Here is a photo of us stamping up a storm!  It was super fun to spend the day with several of my demonstrator friends!!

2015-09-17 10.35.13

They had 4 super fabulous projects for us to make while we were there (click to see one of them) and today I'm sharing the 2nd project with you.. a darling pumpkin with a witches hat! The pumpkin is easily made with the Stampin' Up! Curvy Keepsake box die, and the hat is made up of only 3 different punches with Black Glimmer Paper!

 

Halloween-curvy-keepsake-pumpkin-witches-hat-supply-list-stampin-up

After punching and die cutting the pieces shown above, you'll need to stamp your Pumpkin Pie Curvy Keepsake box pieces with a fun background stamp.. I used the Chalk Lines image shown above.  Then stamp a face on your pumpkin - the one above is from the Sparkly Seasons set on pg 40 in the Holiday catalog.

Halloween-witches-hat-tree-punch-stampin-up

The had it so simple yet just BEYOND adorable!!  It uses the 2-1/2" circle punch, and the Tree punch (using the Black Glimmer Paper) and the Word Window punch punched in the center of the circle.  It's decorated with a Bow Builder punch.

Watch Janet's fabulous video tutorial here!

Halloween-curvy-keepsake-box-treat-witches-hat-stampin-up-pumpkin-2

Just cut a slit in the center of the Spider Web Doily and it will slip right over the handles of the Curvy Keepsake box.. umm.. how CLEVER is that!?  Thank you, Janet for an adorable project!

 Are you going to make these for Halloween!?  They are SO CUTE and really pretty easy!

When our son Jason was little, we loved Halloween.. it was so exciting letting him select a costume, go trick or treating in the neighborhood, participate in the school Halloween parties and the parade... I always decorated our home for Halloween and fall, bought WAY too much candy (on purpose!?).. but now that he's 24, I don't do as much decorating and we hardly have any trick or treaters anymore, so I don't do as much for Halloween as I used to.

I do love all of the fun memories thought... Do you think he was just too cute?? I do!

  Halloween-memories-favorite-costume-pattystamps

Did you have a favorite Halloween costume as a kid? or a favorite that your kids or grandkids wore?  Leave me a comment :)  I'd love to hear about it.

My favorite costume as a child was a wedding dress that my mom made for me and she would cut me a bouquet of mums from her garden and I would carry that with me - I felt SO SPECIAL!!!!  I still associate the smell of mums with that beautiful bridal costume, with Halloween and my mom :) 

I found a picture of a scrapbook page I made with that costume... wow.. that was Halloween 50 years ago!

  Bride halloween 18

Well, I got a little side-tracked with a walk down memory lane there, but what I was going to share with you is the really cute Halloween Stampin' UP! Witching Decor Hat Project Kit!

This is the perfect kit for a quick and easy but STUNNING hat centerpiece that you can leave up for the whole month of October!! Order yours now so that you have time to make it and display it!

You'll need the kit and the extra supplies listed below.. have fun!

Spooky Spider Web Doily Halloween Card

 

Stampin-up-halloween-howl-o-ween-treat-spiderweb-doily-card-glimmer-paper-iced-rhinestones-pattystamps

Did you see the Baker's Box treat with the Spider Web Doily center? Did you wonder what I did with the outside of the doily!  I did NOT toss it... I used it on this card!

Here is a reminder of what I did with the inside of the doily.

Stampin-up-halloween-howl-o-ween-treat-spiderweb-doily-card-glimmer-paper-pattystamps

Did you see this STUNNING black glimmer paper??   I love this paper!  It's really easy to miss (pg 47 in the Holiday catalog or here online).  I cut the circle and the extra strip of paper using the Black Glimmer paper!

Other glitzy touches to my card:  Iced Rhinestone embellishments (pg 24 Holiday catalog), and green striped "Color me Irresistible" paper from pg 142 of the annual catalog #138439.  I punched the corners using the new Curvy Trio Corner punch... love that contrast of the Cucumber Crush paper against the Basic Black card!

I thought that the Trick or Treat greeting needed a background, so I used the line stamp from the  Stamp a Bag set and Pumpkin Pie ink to make my own background!

Halloween Treat - Double Fry Box - Mini Blog Hop Day 3

 

We have come to day 3 of our Mini Blog Hop!  See Day 1 here, and Day 2 here.

Today's Halloween Treat is a Double French Fry Box.. this is SO cute!! Cindee designed it for us.. it's so amazing!!

Halloween-french-fry-box-double-treat-witches-hat-spider-web-doily-stampin-up

 You have probably seen the Stampin' UP! French Fry box Big Shot die before.. well, this one is DOUBLE the fun because it's 2 of them put back to back!!!  Here is a MINI tutorial for you!  Cindee showed us how to make sure we got the oval punch in the same spot on both pieces.. punch a post it note oval, place it on the die cut and punch, then line up the 2 die cut pieces and punch through the oval.. both pieces will be punched in the same spot!

Double-french-fry-box-pattystamps-stampin-up

 Thank you Cindee for teaching me how to make this ADORABLE 3-d treat box! It's so easy and it's so fun!!

To decorate it, we stamped the adorable hat from the Howl-o-Ween Treat stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink and then die cut it with the matching Boo to You framelits!! The spider is too adorable and was stamped and die cut with the same sets!

Halloween-french-fry-box-double-spider-web-doily-stampin-up-pattystamps

Did you see this fun tip?  I folded the Spider Web doily instead of cutting it in 1/2 and I loved the white "shadow" that it gave.. isn't that cool!?

Halloween-treat-chocolate-happy-haunting-stampin-up-pattystamps

Dress up little chocolates or candies by wrapping your paper scraps around them and tie it with ribbon or thick baker's twine... sweet.. right!? Thanks Cindee for that great idea too!  We die cut the BOO out of Black Glimmer paper.. oh my .. so sparkly!!

Halloween Treat - Pillow Box - Mini Blog Hop Day 2

 

Did you see Day 1 of our Halloween Treat Mini Blog Hop yesterday?

Today we have a Square Pillow Box Halloween treat for you!  Lisa designed this ADORABLE project for us to make and we used lots of Holiday Catalog Products.. read on for more info.

Halloween-pillow-box-chocolate-treat-stampin-up-pattystamps

The Square Pillow Box is a great thinlit die to use in your Big Shot machine to die cut any pattern of paper or color of cardstock!  You'll find it on pg 41 in the Holiday catalog, or in my online store.

These boxes measure approx. 4-1/2" x 6" when finished, so they hold a nice amount of treats, or a gift card, a small gift, diamonds... ok.. just sayin'.

139657-thinlits-squarepillowbox-pattystamps

The Thinlit die is available on its own or in a bundle .. save 15% when you purchase it with the stamp set on pg 41: "A Little Something".  We used the Pillow Box die to cut fun Halloween print paper from the Happy Haunting paper package (pg 47, #139584).

Halloween-happy-haunting-square-pillow-box-treat-pattystamps-stampin-up-spider-web-doily

Lisa's cute design includes a 1" wide Happy Hauntings "belly band",  cutting a Spider Web Doily in 1/2 (makes the pack go farther!) and punching out a cute stamped tag with the Note Tag Punch. The cute stamped tag greetings are in the Sweet Hauntings stamp set, (pg 47, or here in my online store).

Halloween Treat - Mini Blog Hop - Day 1

 

Trick or Treat! We have a fun treat for you!

Lisa, Cindee, and I recently stamped up a storm and came up with some darling DIY Halloween Treat projects to share with you! 

Today, we are sharing our Baker's Box "FaBOOlous" treat featuring the Happy Haunting paper and the Baker's Box framelit from Stampin' UP!

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-stampin-up-happy-haunting-owl-six-sayings

This was the fun little project that I designed and shared the day I stamped with with Cindee and Lisa,... they are going to share their projects with you on this mini blog hop, so please click on the links to their blogs at the bottom of this post to see more ideas!

Did you know we had to perform OWL SURGERY!!!  Yes, we did.. but no owls were harmed in the creating of this project!

Halloween-treat-owl-surgery-six-sayings-faboolous-pattystamps

After I stamped & die cut Mr. Owl (from the Howl-o-Ween Treat stamp set and coordinating Boo to You framelit set, pg 49 of the Holiday catalog)  I realized that the "FaBOOlous" banner was going to cover most of his little body.. so, I took a deep breath and cut him in 1/2!!!!  I split him apart, notched under his wings, and tucked the stamped banner in the slots so it looked like he was holding on to it :)  Then I put him all back together with some Fast Fuse and scotch tape on the back!

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-stampin-up-happy-haunting-owl-six-sayings-pattystamps-2

The FaBOOlous greeting comes from the Six Sayings Hostess stamp set on pg 51 of the Holiday catalog.. we punched the ends with the Banner Triple Punch, and drew a line on the top and bottom of the banner with a Stampin' UP! Project Life Journaling Pen.   Hostess sets are available with your Stampin' Rewards hostess $$ on any customer or workshop order over $150.. see pricing for wood and clear mount options on pg 51.

Did you see my fun tip for making your own GOOGLY EYES!?  << click for the details

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-owl-stampin-up-six-sayings-pattystamps

I also thought this was a fun little tip.. bring the Tangelo Twist 5/8" striped cotton ribbon around the whole box and tuck it in the slot at the top of the Baker's Box, then tie it with some Basic Black 3/8" stitched satin ribbon :)

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-ribbon-stampin-up

You can use the slot framelit piece that comes in your Baker's Box framelit die set, or use the Curvy Corner Trio punch to punch a slot in the box flaps.

Did you see my TIP for getting your candy out of your Baker's Box?

Happy Haunting Halloween Treat Bag

 

Join me today for a Mini Blog Hop!  Cindee, Lisa and I have 3 projects featuring a 1/2 Size Mini Treat Bag for Halloween!

Did you know you can make the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag even smaller!?  Cindee taught us how!

Mini-treat-bag-halloween-poison-toxic-stampin-up-pattystamps

My friends Cindee, Lisa and I got together last week for an afternoon of stamping, and this is one of the darling projects we made!!  Cindee taught us how to make the 1/2 Size Mini Treat Bag!  I have a tutorial for you and links to their blogs at the bottom of this post!

DSP-happy-haunting-stampin-up-halloween-paper-pattystamps

We used the fun new Happy Haunting paper that will be available starting 9/1/15 in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die to create our spooky Halloween Treat!  This 1/2 size treat bag is the perfect size for some pencils, lip gloss, ruler, or these fun pizza stick treats!  Our 1/2 size bag measures about 2" x 5-1/4".  When you create the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag with the other larger piece, it measures about 3-1/2" x 5-1/4".  So this fun Big Shot thinlit die gives you options for more than one size!!

Mini-treat-bag-halloween-sweet-hauntings-poison-tag-pattystamps-stampin-up

We decorated our bags with a simple punched tag, stamped with the Poison and Toxic bottles from the new Sweet Hauntings stamp set - another great upcoming Holiday Catalog item!! We stamped with the new Archival Black ink pad, (available 9/1/15).. oh my gosh.. it is amazing!!! Stamps so crisp and clean.. we loved it!  We each added some of the Happy Haunting Washi Tape to our tags and I colored some White Perfect Accents with a Black Sharpie. 

Behind the tag is a cut down Spider Web Doily.. check out my Baker's Box post here for more info on trimming down your Spider Web Doily!  Again.. just another way to make your supplies go further by giving them a way to adapt to more than one size!

Candy Corn Halloween Treat - Stampin UP! Baker's Box

 

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-stampin-up-yum-pattystamps

I have had this cute Baker's Box framelit die for a few months, and finally took it out of the package (I'm sure that's happened to you!)... How cute is this!? It's the perfect size for a Halloween Treat or any party favor size treat box!

You'll find this great Baker's Box framelit die on pg 171 of the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog (#138279).  Die cut it with your Big Shot in any paper or cardstock color or pattern for any occasion!  And add a cute little window to your box with one of the 3 shapes included in the framelit set, and then add a piece of window sheet inside the opening!

I found it to be about the easiest box to put together out of all the Big Shot dies Stampin' Up! offers!  Really helps to use the new Tear & Tape, found on pg 156, #138995. It's great for holding boxes and 3-d gift packaging together!

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-halloween-card-spooky-pattystamps

In my stamping world, the only thing better than a stamp image with a matching punch is a stamp image with a matching Big Shot framelit!! :)  How cute are these pumpkins!?  I used the new Sparkly Seasons stamp set and matching Seasonal Frame thinlits to die cut the pumpkin, stems and "spooky".   The pumpkins are stamped in Tangerine Tango on Tangerine Tango cardstock.

Wondering about the cute polkadot background? I used a card from a past Paper Pumpkin kit - it was black and white - and I brayered it with Tangerine Tango ink! :)

If you've been waiting for the perfect adhesive for delicate items like the Spooky die cut... check out the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen on page 43 of the Holiday catalog... oh my... it is such a wonderful way to adhere your fine, small or delicate items to your crafting projects!

 The paper I have featured in my projects today can be found on pg 47 of the Holiday catalog.. it's called Happy Haunting!

Dsp happy haunting stampin up pattystamps halloweeen

For this fun "BOO" black glimmer paper card, I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" to create a fun side fold card design.

  Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-card-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The Black Glimmer paper might be easily missed on pg 47... so DON"T MISS IT! :)

How fun is this glimmery black witch hat and "BOO" die cut!?

I used the Boo to You framelits (pg 49) for these cute glimmery black die cuts.

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The big pumpkin is stamped with the same supplies as my first card, and the little pumpkin is found in the Howl-o-ween Treat set (pg 49) and die cut with the Boo to You framelits.

Decorate your Halloween Candy Bucket

 

Here is a fun activity you could do with the kids before Halloween!!

Decorate your Halloween Candy Bucket with some Stampin' Up! accessories, die cuts, stamps, ribbons, etc.!

Fun-fall-trick-or-treat-candy-bucket-stampin-up

I picked up the cute bucket at my local dollar store and decorated it with some punched out headstones, die cut ghosts, and Stampin' Up! Ribbon and Twine!

Fun-fall-trick-or-treat-candy-bucket-ghost

The cute ghostie is die cut from the Fun Fall Framelits found on pg 46 of the Holiday Catalog.  I created the headstones by punching out Basic Gray cardstock with the Note Tag Punch (pg 13 Holiday catalog).  If you purchase the Merry Everything stamp set, it will include the Good to the Last Bite stamp (and 4 others) and you'll get a 15% discount on your purchase with the set and punch!

Oh, and the cute face on the ghost was stamped with one of the stamps from the Fall Fest set.. so again, if you are looking for another bundle at 15% off, grab the Fall Fest set and matching framelits for your 15% discount price!

Fun-fall-trick-or-treat-candy-bucket-tombstone

Do you have a lot of trick or treaters?  I remember my parents would have hundreds of trick or treaters at our house when I was young.. and we used to have several dozen, but it seems to have dwindled over the years.

You can see and purchase all of the products I used in the table below.

You may be familiar with the Control Freaks group that I belong to.. we have a blog tour on the 20th of each month and we also swap cards several times a year... check out this ADORABLE Halloween card my friend Steph made for one of our Control Freak swaps!! I love this! I thought you would too and wanted to share it!

This cute Halloween card features the stamp set on page 112 in the Annual Stampin' UP! catalog called YOU LITTLE FURBALL.  What a fun name for a stamp set!!  LOL  and how cute is this that the kitty is peeking out of a punch art pumpkin!?

The Decorative Dots embossing folder is super cute on this card both in the background and on the punch art pumpkin!

Thanks, Steph for the totally adorable card!

Stampin' Up! Halloween Treat Box

 

Yep, all the candies in my little treat boxes are definitely Good to the Last Bite!

My favorites?  Mini Snickers and Candy Corn... how about you?

Easy Background Coloring Tip for the tag: 

  1. stamp the Good to the Last Bite image on Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink
  2. punch out with coordinating Note Tag Punch
  3. sponge Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry ink on the tag
  4. use a sponge dauber to color his face with Pistachio Pudding ink
  5. layer the punched tag onto a tag created from the Motley Monsters DSP and Scalloped Tag Topper punch

Wrap it all up with Tangerine Tango Two-Tone Twine!

I stamped on the Treat Box while it was still flat using the Hardwood background stamp in Baked Brown Sugar ink.

Stampin' Up! Halloween Treat Bag

 

Halloween is the perfect time for quick and easy Treat Bags!

I love these new Petite Cafe Gift Bags found on pg 10 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!! 

Motley-monsters-freaky-friends-halloween-bag-stampin-up

These Petite Cafe Bags really aren't all that petite.. they are 8" tall, so they hold a great sampling of treats! They are poly-lined, so you can put cookies or wrapped candies or anything you wish in them!

Motley-monsters-freaky-friends-halloween-bag-tag-stampin-up

You can see that I've elected to just decorate it simply with a strip of paper from the Motley Monsters paper pack (pg 45 Holiday catalog) and stamp a quick tag with the fun Freaky Friends stamp set. You could stamp right on these kraft bags if you wish!

Today's post is Part 2 of a 3-part mini-series featuring Halloween Projects.  Be sure to check out yesterday's Memory Tray wall decor project here, and tune in tomorrow for a cute Halloween gift box treat!

OH>> if you didn't recognize the cute black and white star paper... it's actually a Project Life card that I cut up and used on my projects!  You'll find that card in the Seasonal Snapshot Project LIfe card collection on pg 35 in the Holiday catalog!

Grab a package of Cafe Bags here in my online store.  You get 10 in a package for only $5.95!!
