Halloween Treat Cover–Stampin’ Up!

Hello!  Can you believe it’s Friday already?  Whew, the time flew by this week!  🙂

I told you yesterday that I would post my project that was inspired by a great Halloween swap that I received that week at the Unite & Excite event.  Well, I am here making good on my word!

Here is what I posted yesterday:

I created a quick treat inspired from what Theresa had already done.  I do not own a few of the supplies that she used but I didn’t let that stop me!

Materials used for Theresa’s treat:  Basic Black card stock, Scalloped Tag Topper, 1 3/8″ circle punch, Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper, Fall Fest Stamp Set + Fun Fall Framelits Bundle, Bitty Banners Framelits, Teeny Tiny Wishes

For starters she used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and I do not have that one so I substituted the Decorative Label Punch.  I slid my black card stock (which is 2″ x 8 1/2″) into the punch in order to only punch at the ends.  This just adds some cute detail but you could also just use a corner rounder for interest.

Next I used a piece of 1″ x 6″ piece of designer paper to wrap around the middle of the “pouch” after I set my candy inside (I used Kit-Kat’s for my treats).  I then punched a hole at the top and tied both sides together with a piece of the new 2-tone Tangerine & White thick bakers twine.

Finally, I stamped my images from Freaky Friends onto Whisper White card stock.  I punched it out with the
1 1/4″ circle punch.  I also punched a piece of black with the 1 3/8″ circle punch and a Tangerine Tango piece with the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle punch.

I added those punched pieces to my designer paper strip and I was finished!

Easy peasy.  You can create a lot of these in no time!  I will be giving my treats to special friends of mine and I may even go ahead and make them for my trick-or-treater’s too.

I hope that you find some time this weekend to do something fun and crafty!  Make sure you bookmark my page and come back often!  You don’t want to miss Monday’s around here for a while as I will be posting the next Merry Monday card and video this Monday!

Have a great day!

Ps…Don’t forget to reserve your spot in the upcoming classes:  Birthday Card Camp & World Card Making Day/Halloween Camp!  See more details on my CLASSES PAGE!


Important Update on Blendabilities and More

Tomorrow is the LAST DAY of SCHOOL!  Oh boy, let the Summer fun begin. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I wanted to fill you in on a little info about the awesome NEW Blendabilities; they will not be available to order when the new catalog goes LIVE on Monday, June 2nd.  The reasoning behind that is Stampin’ Up! will not have enough supply to cover the expected demand.  Hang in there because they will be available some time late June or early July!  I will let you know as soon as they become available to order.
Can’t wait till then?  I have a solution for you! 🙂  If you sign up to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator you may order your own sets just as soon as you receive your demo id # (which happens minutes after you sign up).
