Gentle Peace Christmas set on Clearance Sale

 

I was cleaning out some boxes of old cards to donate for a Cancer Center charity sale, and came across these 2 cards I had made several years ago.. this was one of my favorite stamp sets that year (2014).. it's called Gentle Peace.

I noticed it was on the Clearance Rack for ONLY $7.98 so I thought perhaps this would be a good deal to pass along!

ABOVE: The card on the left was colored on Cardstock Vellum, with markers - I colored on the BACK of the vellum.  It's a soft stained glass look!!

The card on the right was colored with alcohol markers on the BACK of a Window Sheet.. and again, a pretty stained glass look is achieved with this technique!

I die cut the opening in the folded Whisper White folded card using a big shot die no longer available, but the Lots of Labels framelits (#138281) would be a great substitute.

As you saw in the video above, I had this cute striped bag from Sephora and I didn't want to toss it in the recycle bin, so I just covered the store logo with these cute "Pop of Pink" gifts!! 

 I cut some Pop of Pink paper (page 172 annual catalog, #141648) into 2" squares and 2" x 2-1/2" pieces and those were the "gift boxes" then used the Sunshine Wishes "flower" framelit die cut as the bow (page 194, #141489)!  Color palette: black, white, Melon Mambo, and gold.  The Gold Foil Sheets (pg 175, #132622) are an amazing compliment to the gold printed patterns in the Pop of Pink Paper Pack!!!

 

Supplies I used for my Stampin Up! Blog Candy Giveaway - repurposed Sephora bag decorated with Pop of Pink "gifts" with bows, by Patty Bennett. www.PattyStamps.com

 

I recreated the look of the gift bag with a card.  I folded a Melon Mambo 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of cardstock in 1/2 and then added the black and white striped piece from the Pop of Pink designer series paper pack, then added the "gifts" and bows just like I did on the bag!  (see the video for all the details).

Halloween Night Fall Card ideas featuring Stampin' Up! Halloween Cookie Cutter Scarecrows  By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I started with a Whisper White or Crumb Cake note card for all of these cards, and added pieces of the Halloween Night designer paper to them.   I also added some 2015-2017 In Color Doilies to most of the cards.. the colors went really well!!

I didn't really want to make Halloween cards quite yet, so I created cards that can be used all fall and autumn, and for giving thanks.  I love the Give Thanks sentiment in the Suite Seasons set, and also the fun happy hello banner - quick and easy to stamp and punch out!

 I hope these give you some inspiration for fall cards this year!

Creative Halloween Treat Bag Ideas - Part 3

 

We just bought some Halloween Candy at Sam's Club... do you do this too?  Pick out the kind that you will eat "just in case" we don't have a lot of trick or treaters??  Well, we did.. LOL  :) 

Today I have some more ideas for you to package up those fun Halloween candy treats for someone special, and today's post features the skinny 2" x 8" cello treat bags from Stampin' Up!.

 

Stampin UP! DIY Halloween Treat Bags featuring Jar of Haunts stamp set and Halloween Night paper.  Tag Toppers: Cheerful Tag Framelits and Merry Tags Framelits.  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 This is part 3 in a 3 part series.. I hope you've enjoyed the ideas for fancying up your Halloween treats!

After filling the bags with candy, I die cut a different topper for each one and tied it onto the bag.

You'll find the supplies for these bags here:

  •  2" x 8" cello bags, pg 176 annual catalog #141703
  • Halloween Night paper, pg 51 Holiday catalog, #142022
  • Halloween Night baker's twine, pg 51 Holiday catalog, #142027
  • Halloween Night Washi tape, pg 51 Holiday catalog, #142026
  • Jar of Haunts stamp set, pg 55 Holiday catalog, #142247
  • Cheerful Tags Framlits, pg 39 Holiday catalog, #141838
  • Merry Tags framliets, pg 21 Holiday catalog, #141835

 

Stampin UP! DIY Halloween Treat Bags featuring Jar of Haunts stamp set and Halloween Night paper.  Tag Toppers: Cheerful Tag Framelits and Merry Tags Framelits.  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

For the tag on the bag on the left, I die cut a tag using the Merry Tags framelits and the Halloween Night designer paper.  I punched a 2" circle in Pumpkin Pie to put behind it, and a 1-1/4" circle for the Happy Halloween stamped sentiment.

 

Stampin UP! DIY Halloween Treat Bags featuring Jar of Haunts stamp set and Halloween Night paper.  Tag Topper:  Merry Tags Framelits.  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

After creating the tag, I tied it to the bag with the Halloween Night baker's twine.  Simple, and cute, but with a little wow factor, don't you think?

Above and Below:  for the other tag in today's project, I die cut a piece of Halloween Night paper with the Cheerful Tags framliet and then decorated it with a stamped pumpkin and some Halloween Night washi tape.

The pumpkin is stamped in Archival Black ink onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and cut out with Paper Snips.  I love the pumpkin in the Jar of Haunts stamp set because you can stamp it with or without the face.. so you can either create fall pumpkins, or jack-o-lanterns!

I love this fun 2" x 8" size cello.. just lends itself to some fun treats and doesn't cost a fortune to fill the bag!
