Halloween Night Fall Card ideas featuring Stampin' Up! Halloween Cookie Cutter Scarecrows  By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I started with a Whisper White or Crumb Cake note card for all of these cards, and added pieces of the Halloween Night designer paper to them.   I also added some 2015-2017 In Color Doilies to most of the cards.. the colors went really well!!

I didn't really want to make Halloween cards quite yet, so I created cards that can be used all fall and autumn, and for giving thanks.  I love the Give Thanks sentiment in the Suite Seasons set, and also the fun happy hello banner - quick and easy to stamp and punch out!

Creative Halloween Treat Bag Ideas - Part 3

 

We just bought some Halloween Candy at Sam's Club... do you do this too?  Pick out the kind that you will eat "just in case" we don't have a lot of trick or treaters??  Well, we did.. LOL  :) 

Today I have some more ideas for you to package up those fun Halloween candy treats for someone special, and today's post features the skinny 2" x 8" cello treat bags from Stampin' Up!.

 

Stampin UP! DIY Halloween Treat Bags featuring Jar of Haunts stamp set and Halloween Night paper.  Tag Toppers: Cheerful Tag Framelits and Merry Tags Framelits.  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 This is part 3 in a 3 part series.. I hope you've enjoyed the ideas for fancying up your Halloween treats!

After filling the bags with candy, I die cut a different topper for each one and tied it onto the bag.

You'll find the supplies for these bags here:

  •  2" x 8" cello bags, pg 176 annual catalog #141703
  • Halloween Night paper, pg 51 Holiday catalog, #142022
  • Halloween Night baker's twine, pg 51 Holiday catalog, #142027
  • Halloween Night Washi tape, pg 51 Holiday catalog, #142026
  • Jar of Haunts stamp set, pg 55 Holiday catalog, #142247
  • Cheerful Tags Framlits, pg 39 Holiday catalog, #141838
  • Merry Tags framliets, pg 21 Holiday catalog, #141835

 

Stampin UP! DIY Halloween Treat Bags featuring Jar of Haunts stamp set and Halloween Night paper.  Tag Toppers: Cheerful Tag Framelits and Merry Tags Framelits.  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

For the tag on the bag on the left, I die cut a tag using the Merry Tags framelits and the Halloween Night designer paper.  I punched a 2" circle in Pumpkin Pie to put behind it, and a 1-1/4" circle for the Happy Halloween stamped sentiment.

 

Stampin UP! DIY Halloween Treat Bags featuring Jar of Haunts stamp set and Halloween Night paper.  Tag Topper:  Merry Tags Framelits.  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

After creating the tag, I tied it to the bag with the Halloween Night baker's twine.  Simple, and cute, but with a little wow factor, don't you think?

Above and Below:  for the other tag in today's project, I die cut a piece of Halloween Night paper with the Cheerful Tags framliet and then decorated it with a stamped pumpkin and some Halloween Night washi tape.

The pumpkin is stamped in Archival Black ink onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and cut out with Paper Snips.  I love the pumpkin in the Jar of Haunts stamp set because you can stamp it with or without the face.. so you can either create fall pumpkins, or jack-o-lanterns!

I love this fun 2" x 8" size cello.. just lends itself to some fun treats and doesn't cost a fortune to fill the bag!

Cutest Halloween Card EVER!

 

Trick or Treat!!!

Today I'm excited to share the Cutest Stampin' Up! Halloween Card ever, and a great MUMMY tip!! :)

 

Halloween Trick or Treat card featuring Stampin' UP! Cookie Cutter Halloween mummy, dracula and skeleton.  Halloween Scenes die cut background tree and fence create the perfect backdrop. by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

When I stamped with my friend Cindee a couple weeks ago, I brought the "fixins" for this card and we both made it.. it's SOOOO cute and super easy with the Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies for the tree and fence, and the Cookie Cutter Halloween guys for the rest of the card!

Patty's Halloween Card Tips:

  • Little Dracula: be sure your black pad is well inked for this image.. I used my Archival Black ink pad and then colored in the vest and shirt with Stampin' Write markers
  • Mummy:  see my tip below for adding subtle coloring/shading to the mummy using the "wash" stamp from the Perpetual Birthday set
  • Fence:  the fence die cut is not quite long enough to go across a 5-1/4" card, so I matched it up in the big shot and cut it twice
  • Moon:  sponge some Calypso Coral, or Pumpkin Pie ink onto Daffodil Delight yellow cardstock then punch with your circle punch for a perfect moon!
  • Punch them!  Never fear.. you don't need to fussy cut the cute little characters.. just use the Cookie Cutter Builder punch found on page 6 of the 2016 Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog.

 

Shading Tip for Cookie Cutter Halloween mummy - stamp edges with a "wash" image stamp like this one from the Perpetual Birthday calendar set!  by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Always stamp first, then turn your punch over and punch out your image for perfect placement!

Cookie Cutter Halloween mummy punch tip: always stamp your image first, then flip the punch over to punch out a perfectly aligned image.

 

Tip to make your fence longer for a wider card:

Halloween Scenes fence die cutting tip: Cut image once, then realign the die and cut again to extend the fence for a wider card.

 

Bundle & Save!  Enjoy a 10% savings when you purchase both the Halloween Scenes Edgelit die cut set and the Spooky Fun stamp set, both featured here on this card!  enter #144437 on your order online. See page 52 in the Holiday catalog for all the details!

I wrapped a strip of the Halloween Night paper around the cello bag after slipping the candy inside, then wrapped the Halloween Baker's twine around that.  The excess part of the bag is just folded over and secured in the back. 

Before tying the bow, I added the mini tassel!  :)

The Pumpkin Pie Glimmer bats are die cut with the Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies (page 52 Holiday Catalog).

Excuse me.. but these tassels are WAY Too fun!!  Don't they just add the cutest touch to this package!?  It really shows that you care about someone when you take a moment to add a little extra somethin' to their Halloween Treat!

To decorate this fun Halloween candy treat, I die cut the pumpkins and fence pieces from the Halloween Scenes Edgelit die pack and added them to a "flag" and onto the bag topper.  I also die cut a black bat, and added a little stamped banner with Halloween Night enamel shapes.

Patty's Blast from the Past Pumpkin Card

 

You may be thinking... WHAT blast from the past?  This Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin is BRAND NEW!?  Well, yes, you are right... but I got out my Prismacolor Pencils from my 1979 college art class to color them... now THAT'S a Blast from the Past, don't you think!? (contrary to popular belief, the world was not black and white back then... we did have color :)

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I found my Prismacolor pencil set recently and thought... hmmm I really want to use these on something.. so I looked for an outline image and whohoooo! This fun new pumpkin was perfect!  It's in the Jar of Haunts stamp set, on page 55 of the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!!  You can order this beginning Sept. 1st.  #142247.  Be sure to put it on your Shopping List!  Download 2016 Holiday Catalog Wish List

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped and colored 2 of the pumpkins on the Whisper White card front and left them as is, with the stamped stem/leaves on top, and the 3rd pumpkin was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut out, and I stamped the Jack o Lantern face and add it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals, and then added the Halloween greeting.

The cute polkadot paper behind the pumpkin piece is from the Halloween Night Specialty designer series paper pack, found on page 51 of the new Holiday catalog.  #142022

Did you notice the pretty background?  It's the new Cable Knit embossing folder.. Oh my.. it's gorgeous!  Did you see it in my Holiday catalog product review video??  You can CLICK HERE to see that part of the video!   After that video I discovered that it's REALLY pretty to use the new sponge brayer on the embossed cardstock.. look a the beautiful dimension... actually, it's great with or without the brayered ink!

 

Stampin' Up! Cable Knit embossing folder - add dimension with the sponge brayer and ink! by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

You'll find the Cable Knit embossing folder on page 13 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.  #143537.

TIP:  when adhering an embossed piece of cardstock, I highly recommend the Multipurpose glue.

Find the new Sponge Brayer is in the annual catalog, page 180, #141714.

I felt really rusty trying to remember how to use and blend the colored pencils.. but if you want to know how I colored the pumpkins, here is my step by step tutorial:

How to color the Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

I really loved that wash background stamp 'behind' the pumpkins.. you'll find that stamp in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. It's on page 134 in the annual catalog, #137167.  Before stamping it, I masked the pumpkins, and also stamped off the Cajun Craze ink so that it wouldn't be too dark.

 

Customers: You'll be able to add these new products to your online order beginning on Sept. 1st!!!

Wow, what a great response to the August release of the Thoughtful Branches bundle!! Thank you to everyone who has purchased it in my online Stampin' Up! store!

I know it's early but I really wanted to show you more versatility using the Thoughtful Branches bundle, so, let's chat about this cute little 2" square clear Halloween Treat Box!!!!

 

Thoughtful branches Tiny Clear Treat Box for Halloween from Stampin' Up! by Patty Bennett

 

After stamping a 2" x 10" strip of Whisper White cardstock with the trees from the Thoughtful Branches set using Memento black ink, I brayered the paper with some Smoky Slate ink and the Sponge brayer.  I added the stamped pumpkin from the Every Occasion stamp set found on page 110 of the 2016 Stampin' UP! catalog.  I thought it needed a spooky little moon, so I sponged Daffodil Delight ink on a scrap and punched out a 1" circle to add to the box.

The tag is a scrap of Whisper White with just the top die cut with the Layering Ovals dies (a scallop), and stamped with For You from the Thoughtful Branches set, and then more pumpkins added and a strip of smoky slate striped paper from the Neutrals Designer Paper Stack (pg 174, #138435). 

I tied a piece of Cucumber Crush striped ribbon just around the lid and through the punched hole in the tag.  The recipient can get the treats out without untying it! :) yay!

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!

----------------

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!

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.

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!

 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!

 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!
