Happy Haunting Halloween Treat Bag

 

Join me today for a Mini Blog Hop!  Cindee, Lisa and I have 3 projects featuring a 1/2 Size Mini Treat Bag for Halloween!

Did you know you can make the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag even smaller!?  Cindee taught us how!

Mini-treat-bag-halloween-poison-toxic-stampin-up-pattystamps

My friends Cindee, Lisa and I got together last week for an afternoon of stamping, and this is one of the darling projects we made!!  Cindee taught us how to make the 1/2 Size Mini Treat Bag!  I have a tutorial for you and links to their blogs at the bottom of this post!

DSP-happy-haunting-stampin-up-halloween-paper-pattystamps

We used the fun new Happy Haunting paper that will be available starting 9/1/15 in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die to create our spooky Halloween Treat!  This 1/2 size treat bag is the perfect size for some pencils, lip gloss, ruler, or these fun pizza stick treats!  Our 1/2 size bag measures about 2" x 5-1/4".  When you create the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag with the other larger piece, it measures about 3-1/2" x 5-1/4".  So this fun Big Shot thinlit die gives you options for more than one size!!

Mini-treat-bag-halloween-sweet-hauntings-poison-tag-pattystamps-stampin-up

We decorated our bags with a simple punched tag, stamped with the Poison and Toxic bottles from the new Sweet Hauntings stamp set - another great upcoming Holiday Catalog item!! We stamped with the new Archival Black ink pad, (available 9/1/15).. oh my gosh.. it is amazing!!! Stamps so crisp and clean.. we loved it!  We each added some of the Happy Haunting Washi Tape to our tags and I colored some White Perfect Accents with a Black Sharpie. 

Behind the tag is a cut down Spider Web Doily.. check out my Baker's Box post here for more info on trimming down your Spider Web Doily!  Again.. just another way to make your supplies go further by giving them a way to adapt to more than one size!

Candy Corn Halloween Treat - Stampin UP! Baker's Box

 

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-stampin-up-yum-pattystamps

I have had this cute Baker's Box framelit die for a few months, and finally took it out of the package (I'm sure that's happened to you!)... How cute is this!? It's the perfect size for a Halloween Treat or any party favor size treat box!

You'll find this great Baker's Box framelit die on pg 171 of the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog (#138279).  Die cut it with your Big Shot in any paper or cardstock color or pattern for any occasion!  And add a cute little window to your box with one of the 3 shapes included in the framelit set, and then add a piece of window sheet inside the opening!

I found it to be about the easiest box to put together out of all the Big Shot dies Stampin' Up! offers!  Really helps to use the new Tear & Tape, found on pg 156, #138995. It's great for holding boxes and 3-d gift packaging together!

Light bulb moment pattystamps

I just have to share this fun light bulb moment with you!!  I wanted to get some of the candy corn out of my treat box, and didn't want to untie the whole thing... hello.. did you know that you can just pop out the spout like a little milk carton!  wowza!!

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-stampin-up-pour-spout-pattystamps

Want to see it in action!?  Watch my Baker's Box Video here!

And another cool tip for you ... trim the new Spider Web doily to any size you wish if it's too big for your crafting project!!  Check out what I did to layer a smaller doily behind the YUM tag!

Above: this is what the spider web doily looks like after you trim it down!  Watch my blog later in the week to find out what I did with the "outside" of the doily!!  Oh and talk about recycling... the tag is just the die cut piece from the front of the box!! Uh Huh!  how cool is that!?  :)

Halloween-stampin-up-boo-to-you-framelit-pumpkin-pattystamps

Above: the adorable little pumpkin image is stamped with a new stamp from the 2015 Holiday catalog, called Howl-o-ween Treat, and then die cut with the coordinating bundle framelit set called Boo to You!  sweet!

Do you remember the hugely popular slit punch from several years ago!? I know it's been on eBay for LOTS of $$.. well, now you can have a slit punch AND two amazing corner punches all in our new Curvy Corner Trio Punch, available 9/1/15!

Vintage Leaves Fall Card Set - Stampin' Up!

 You will love how easy it is to color and create these beautiful Vintage Leaves note cards!!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up-4-cards-fall-pattystamps

 
Even though the weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area doesn't know it.. Fall weather IS on the way... the weather here can't make up its mind!! One day it's 100 and the next it's 70..  and we still don't have rain.. but I know that fall weather is coming so I wanted to get ready with some pretty Vintage Leaves fall cards to share with you!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall--blessing-pattystamps

These pretty vintage leaves are really easy to stamp and color with Stampin' Sponges and Stampin' Up! ink pads.. you can see my tutorial below in this post!  Did you see the Vintage Leaves set in the annual catalog on pg 88?  Item #138802. If you don't already have the framelit dies, don't miss the "Bundle and Save" 15% discount on the Vintage Leaves Bundle!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall--happy-hello-pattystamps

The 2 cards above feature the Brick Wall Embossing folder background, with Vintage Leaves images stamped over the embossed paper.  The Brick Wall embossing folder is found on page 174 in the annual Stampin' Up! catalog (#138288) and it's 6"x6" in size, which allows you to emboss a card front in either direction, or, emboss something larger than a card!  For these note cards, I used the 3-1/2"x5" Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes on pg 149 in the annual catalog (#133766) and only embossed the front with the embossing folder in my Big Shot.

Brick-wall-embossing-folder-stampin-up-card-pattystamps

 

The 2 cards below feature a NEW 2015 Holiday catalog embossing folder called Woodland.  You'll find it on pg 39 of the Holiday catalog.. AND you'll find me using it a lot this fall.. I LOVE it!! The possibilities are endless with this folder!

Woodland-embossing-folder-stampin-up-trees-card-pattystamps

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall-grateful-2-pattystamps

Did you see the pretty corrugated paper accent on each card?  I love this new package of Stampin' Up! Corrugated paper - you get 2 sheets of white corrugated paper and 2 sheets of Kraft corrugated paper.. 4 total 12x12 sheets for only $7!! #138317 on pg 148 of the annual catalog.

Don't like to "fussy cut"?  No worries.. all the leaves are die cut with the coordinating Leaflets framelit set!! yay!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall-grateful-pattystamps

OOh, and I LOVE this grateful die cut!!  It is a part of the "Seasonal Frame Thinlits Die" set on pg 40 of the Holiday catalog.. another item really easy to miss!  I applied it with the new Fine-Tip Glue pen.. another gem not to miss in the Holiday catalog!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall--celebrate-pattystamps

Coloring and cutting these leaves is SOOO easy! I stamped a sheet of each size leaf onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then simply used a Stampin' Sponge to sponge random colors over each one!  I die cut them with the matching Leaflets framelits! Wow! Quick and easy but a lot of Wow!

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-halloween-card-spooky-pattystamps

In my stamping world, the only thing better than a stamp image with a matching punch is a stamp image with a matching Big Shot framelit!! :)  How cute are these pumpkins!?  I used the new Sparkly Seasons stamp set and matching Seasonal Frame thinlits to die cut the pumpkin, stems and "spooky".   The pumpkins are stamped in Tangerine Tango on Tangerine Tango cardstock.

Wondering about the cute polkadot background? I used a card from a past Paper Pumpkin kit - it was black and white - and I brayered it with Tangerine Tango ink! :)

If you've been waiting for the perfect adhesive for delicate items like the Spooky die cut... check out the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen on page 43 of the Holiday catalog... oh my... it is such a wonderful way to adhere your fine, small or delicate items to your crafting projects!

Fine-tip-glue-pen-spooky-stampin-up-pattystamps-tips

 

 The paper I have featured in my projects today can be found on pg 47 of the Holiday catalog.. it's called Happy Haunting!

Dsp happy haunting stampin up pattystamps halloweeen

For this fun "BOO" black glimmer paper card, I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" to create a fun side fold card design.

  Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-card-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The Black Glimmer paper might be easily missed on pg 47... so DON"T MISS IT! :)

How fun is this glimmery black witch hat and "BOO" die cut!?

I used the Boo to You framelits (pg 49) for these cute glimmery black die cuts.

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The big pumpkin is stamped with the same supplies as my first card, and the little pumpkin is found in the Howl-o-ween Treat set (pg 49) and die cut with the Boo to You framelits.

 

Hope you had fun on our Sneak Peek Tour today!!
