I Prefer Treats over Tricks!

I love Halloween! In fact, my daughter, Lindsey, was born on Halloween and was definitely my treat that year.  Since then we have had many halloween birthday parties but one in particular I remember making a paper mache bat pinata.  It had so much glue in it no one could break the pinata. LOL! One of the dads ended up having to break it open so the kids could get to the candy. A little disappointing to the kids, but my daughter and I sure had fun making our first pinata together. Lesson learned – less glue!

I made this cute little treat box for a shoebox swap I attended yesterday with some other ladies from my upline and sideline.  However, you can make it too if you attend my Fall Stamp Camp on Saturday, October 8 from 2-6 p.m.  I’ll have three other fun fall projects as well for $15.00.  Check out the details of my Fall Stamp Camp on my demonstrator website events calendar at www.sherahlweadon.stampinup.net soon!

I used Stampin’ Up!’s new Kraft Gift boxes for the base of my project. These are a deal at 4 boxes for only $2.95. I used the Pick Your Poison Designer Series Paper pack to decorate all sides and inside the top lid.  I then stamped my pumpkins using the Jack of All Trades stamp set. Love that witch hat and rhinestone bling for his eyes!

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Jack of All Trades, Piece of Poison, and Got Treats; Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Basic Black; Designer Series Paper:  Pick Your Poison; Ink:  Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, and Old Olive; Accessories:  Large and Small Tag Punches, Kraft Gift Boxes, 1/8″ Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, 1/2″ Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Basic Rhinestones, Medium Flat Cellow Bags, Linen Thread, Paper Piercing Tool or 1/16″ Circle Punch, Halloween Candy and Lollipop Sticks.

Candy by the Inch!

8 Inches of yummy candy that is! Stampin’ Up!’s new 1″x8″ Cellophane Bags are great for showcasing small candy or even pencils for any holiday. I’ve filled my Halloween goody bags with m&m’s and Juju candy corn.  Can you image the expressions on the kid’s faces when they come trick or treating at your house this year?  You’ll be able to find the cellophane bags in the new Holiday Mini.  There are 50 in a package for $2.50!  The stamped images are from the new stamp set called Spooky Bingo Bits and you can find it in the new 2011-2012 IB&C. I’ve added a bit of ribbon to finish off each of the toppers.

A Halloween Hoot!

My Friend, Hootie!

Hoot! Hoot! Isn’t this owl the cutest? Especially with that cute little trick or treat bag!  And look at those masked eyes filled with mischievous rhinestones – he is definitely ready for a night out on the town full of Halloween fun.  This little guy is from the hostess set “Warmest of Wishes” featured in the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog which can be purchased with FREE hostess dollars earned at a holiday party or workshop.

The background paper featured on this card is from the new Designer Series Paper pack called “Pick Your Poison” which coordinates with the new stamp set “Piece of Poison”.  I got my “Trick or Treat” saying from this set which includes some other really creepy stamps great for making all of your Halloween creations.

That beautiful black border at the top of the card was made using the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch and the finishing touch was the new Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon which I ruffled a bit before placing the Designer Printed Brad in Calypso Coral.  I like my new owl friend, I think I will call him Hootie!

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Warmest of Wishes and Piece of Poison; Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White; Ink:  Basic Black; Marker:  Pumpkin Pie; Designer Series Paper:  Pick your Poison; Accessories:  Owl Builder Punch, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, 1/2″ Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon, Designer Printed Brads, Rhinestones, and Dimensionals
