A Spooktacular Halloween 2019

Spooktacular-halloween-duoToday's projects are two fun Halloween 2019 treat-giving ideas using the wonderful Spooktacular Bash Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.
One is a treat pouch sized perfectly for miniature bags or bars of candy and the other is the tag to hang from a drink or other treat.
This bundle is a fun one for Halloween but if that's not for you, be sure you don't miss the beautiful ornate frames. These can be used for any occasion.
Now let's take a look at the video with these two projects!

Pouch
Cut card stock for the pouch to 4" x 6". 
With 4" side at the top, score at 1/2".
With 6" side at the top, score at 1-1/2" x 4-1/4".
You'll need another piece of the same color card stock cut to 2-1/2" x 3-1/4".
For the sentiment, stamp on Pumpkin Pie card stock (3" x 4") then die cut.
Choose a character from the designer paper to die cut with a small frame.

Tag

For tag, cut DSP (designer series paper) to 2" x 4".
Accent strip is cut 1/2" x 2".
You'll need approx. 2-1/2" x 3" to cut Basic Black tag and 2" x 2" to cut Gray Granite tag.

Here is the supply list for both of these projects.  Host Code: 92ACNFY4

Thanks for tuning in for today's Spooktacular Bash Halloween projects and hope you are inspired to create some fun this season!


Stars Stamper Spotlight: Catherine Stewart

Catherine-painted-harvestToday's Stars Stamper Spotlight features a long time team member, Catherine Stewart.

Catherine is super talented as evident from this work above.  She has a beautiful eye for design and her cards have lots of texture.

The color scheme here is Night of Navy, Old Olive and copper.  The stamp set is a favorite from the annual catalog, Painted Harvest, along with the must-have Leaf Punch.

Here are the details:

  • Card base is Night of Navy cut at 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.
  • Whisper White cardstock is cut  4 x 5-1/4 and dry embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.
  • Notice how this white layer is torn and overlapped to add a beautiful touch of texture.
  • Four sets of leaves were stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Old Olive cardstock, then punched.
  • Four sets of leaves were stamped in Versamark ink and embossed in copper then punched.
  • Flowers:  Ink up base flower in Night of Navy, stamp off on scrap paper then stamp on Whisper White. Ink accent flower stamp in Night of Navy then stamp full strength over previous flower.
  • Stamp flower centers in Versamark then copper emboss.
  • Fussy cut flowers with Paper Snips.
  • Stamp sentiment in Versamark on a strip of Whisper White about 3-1/2 x 1-1/4" and embossed in copper. Banner cut the end as shown.
  • The Old Olive piece that backs the sentiment is cut 3-1/2" x 1-1/2".
  • Adhere sentiment on top of this Old Olive piece.
  • Glue and layer the flowers as desired. 
  • Apply glue to the center of flowers only. 
  • Tuck and glue sentiment piece as shown. 
  • Tuck and glue the leaves beneath as desired.

Make A Card and A Box with Harvest Hellos

IMG_0348The new Harvest Hellos bundle from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is a perfect addition for fall.  Apples and pumpkins are the themes and these two projects show off both.  The bundle includes the stamp set and a coordinating punch that will work for the apples and the pumpkins!

IMG_0350The card evokes a Thanksgiving theme and the box was designed to hold a back-to-school teacher gift. 

Here's the video with the how-to for both projects.

  • The leaves were stamped and cut from a piece of Pear Pizzazz approximately 2" x 4".
  • You'll need a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to punch the stems.
