The September Paper Pumpkin consistently is my favorite each year.  I think it's the fall colors.  I am just ready for them.....and sweatshirt weather.....by the end of August.  This month's kit is extra cool because it makes cards -AND- gift/treat containers.  BONUS!

 

And the project comes together quite quickly.  The embossing on the box is so pretty, and a perfect touch!

 

 

 

Paper Pumpkin offers a great project, without the planning.  It is portable to craft on the fly, or perfect to create while you watch TV, the choice is yours!  Everything you need to complete the project, in a little orange box!

Ready for Christmas bundle meets Halloween

Mr. Spider created with the Ready for Christmas stamp set and Christmas Staircase die set.

 

The first time I saw the Ready for Christmas stamp set, I saw the garland stamp as a hairy spider leg.  Please don't ask why.  I don't know why.  But I ordered this bundle because I had to make today's card!

 

It came out just as I envisioned!  That is not always the case!  Often those crazy visions turn into epic fails.  But I love how he turned out!  And now that I have that hairy spider leg out of my mind, I can move forward, and create some Christmas cards with this bundle, because it is amazing!!

 

Mr. Spider's details.  He is made with the Ready for Christmas bundle.

 

Tips to Recreate this Card:

  • the Pumpkin Pie card base is cut 5 1/5" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4"
  • the background is Spooky Night designer series paper cut 5" x 3 3/4", on a layer of 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" Basic Black cardstock.

 

For the spider, I stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder so he had texture, and stood out better on the basic black cardstock.  

 

To make the Legs

  • stamp and heat emboss 4 pieces of garland, than die cut using the coordinating Christmas Staircase die set
  • embossed 4 more legs using the mirror-image stamping technique, and die cut those as well (the die does not cut mirror images, so line up as best you can) 

To make the Body:

  • stamp and heat emboss the large christmas tree
  • using the Starburst punch, punch one piece
  • glue him all together using glue dots and mini dimensionals to make him look 3-D
  • using the size of your choice, add 2 googlie eyes

 

What do you think?  Can you make a fall or Halloween card using this bundle?

Candy Corn Treat--Yum!

Halloween is such a fun time of year......creating a great costume, planning for a fun evening, and, of course, trick-or-treating!  I am not sure which is more fun, handing out the treats and seeing all the kiddos, or the trick-or-treating itself.  But yummy treats are fun!  You may be the giver, or the receiver of such goodness, but regardless, how can a candy corn treat not remind you of all the fun that comes with Halloween?  So, how about this project.....it uses some of my favorite stamps from the Holiday Catalog. 

Jar of Haunts (page 17) is a fun set no matter how you look at it.  Fall plus Halloween rolled into one!  As a bonus, it coordinates perfectly with the Everyday Jars Framelits from the Annual Catalog (page 192).

This little goody is easy to make.  I created the treat jar by first stamping a jar, than the candy corn inside.  I colored the candy corn with Stampin' Write markers (these are great amazing!).  I added Mr. Spider for a spooky little touch.  Than, I die cut the jar using the Everyday Jars Framelits.  The card base is Pumpkin Pie cardstock, with a layer of Halloween Night designer series paper.  I folded a doily in half, attached to the card front, than adhered my jar with dimensionals.  The Halloween Night Baker's Twine coordinates perfectly to decorate the jar.  The Happy Halloween sentiment, from Teeny Tiny Wishes, was all that I needed to wrap this up.

Does this remind you of Halloween?  I hope so!  Now, gather your Jar of Haunts stamps and Everyday Jars framelits, and don't forget your favorite Halloween treat to snack on, while you create your own treat jar cards!
