Quick & Easy Halloween Treat Holders

Today was a rainy Tuesday so it’s was a great day to work on various projects.  One project on my “to do” list was to make a few Halloween treat holders.  Last week, I shared a baker’s box treat holder so the goal today was to create three quick and easy treat holders. 

The September Paper Pumpkin kit has a cute treat holder that comes together very quickly.  The “haystack” bag is adorable and comes with everything needed to make eight treat holders.  It literally took 30 minutes to assemble all of the kit.  Paper Pumpkin is a great way to try stamping and make cute projects.  Everything for the monthly project is in the kit and best of all, it’s delivered to you! 

Another of the treat holders is an embellished Mini Muslin Bag and the remaining holder is a fry box made by using the Fry Box Bigz L Die.

The Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper was used to make the Fry Box Treat Holder.  The paper itself is decorative so instead of adding a lot of embellishment, I used the Boo to You Framelits Dies and black glimmer paper to cut the word “BOO!” and used pieces of cut dimensionals to elevate the word on the front of the fry box.

“Toxic” Halloween Baker’s Box Treat!

Hi all!  It’s a busy Friday so this is a brief post.  I wanted to share with you a Baker’s Box treat holder that I made using the Stampin’ Up! Baker’s Box Thinlits.  Since Halloween is rapidly approaching, I thought it most fitting to use the Sweet Hauntings and Howl-o-ween Treat stamp sets. I’ll be making a few more of treat holders using the Baker’s Box thinlits and will include details on this project at that time.  Have a great weekend!

A Little Bit More Joy!

Hope you’re not tired of seeing more Christmas cards but I want to share a few of the cards from yesterday’s Stamp-a-Stack. These cards use the Your Presents stamp set and the Holidays Fancy Foil Design Vellum.  The vellum adds a touch of elegance to even the simplest card design.  For the card base, the Whisper White Thick card stock was used…if you have not tried this paper, you must put it on your wish list.  The heavier weight of the card stock provides a sturdy card base and it’s a dream paper to work with. Also, note that the “kissing technique” was used to create the patterned packages.  This stamp set lends itself to using this technique. Peeking from behind the left card is the edge of the embellished envelope…I often like to add a stamped image to either an envelope corner or the back flap; it’s that little unexpected that adds a nice touch.

Enough Christmas cards have been shared for now and I’ll save others to share in future posts.  In Friday’s post, I promise you’ll see a different theme.  Until then, have a great week!

Lots of Joy!

Yes, I’m back to making Christmas cards!  It’s only 97 days away and as we know, time flies so it will be here quickly.  I really love the papers and stamp set bundles in the current Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog so that maybe part of the reason that I’m eager to make holiday cards.  Since the Stamp-a-Stack class is next week, this card was designed to offer attendees the ability to create a card series that can be easily replicated.  The Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper (DSP) provides a wonderful variety of colors and designs.

Next week, I’ll be sharing more of the Stamp-a-Stack cards so more Christmas cards will be posted and hope you’ll be joining me in enjoying early holiday spirit!

Need a Bridal Shower Card?

Hope you had a great weekend.  The countdown for my son’s wedding has begun and on Saturday,  I attended a Bridal Shower for my son’s fiance’.  Naturally, a card was needed to go with the gift so I selected a sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the English Garden to use as my design inspiration.  The wedding colors have shades of pink so the pink floral design was perfect.  With such beautiful DSP, there’s no need to do lots of stamping as the paper becomes the focal point.  It’s also wonderful when you are short on time and need to create a card quickly so don’t forget to look through the DSP you have available to create the perfect card.  As an extra touch, the envelope and the card interior were stamped using the small flower from the Watercolor Words stamp set.

We’re less than a month from the wedding so I’ll share the other projects for the wedding in the next few posts so check back on Friday.  It’s an exciting time for all of our family!
