 Tombstone Treats

More Halloween Crafting coming your way. 

 This time I'm using the tombstone treat boxes from the Cutest Halloween Suite 156279 on page 50 in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.  Of course I had to use the black and white gingham ribbon.  The cute ghost, pumpkin and cat are punched from the DSP using the punch. The three smaller ghost are die cut from vellum using the Festive and Bright die set.  I used the black sequin stars on them to cover up the mini adhesive dimensionals.  The Trick or Treat is from the stamp set.

Wouldn't these make great favors at a Halloween party? I filled mine with Nerd candies.

You can order at shop now.

Happy Crafting,

Early Halloween card using the Festive and Bright  158536 Stamp and Die Set.  This Bundle is featured in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog on page 64.  The unique die set can be used to cut the right or left side or the entire garland like I have used here on my card of witch's hats and brooms.

I used my favorite item out of the entire catalog the black and white gingham ribbon I've already had to order another roll. I doubled it with some Fresh Freesia.  The card base is black and is stamped with Spooky along the right side in VersaMark, but I'm not sure it shows up on camera.  Spooky is then heat embossed in white on a gray background.  The shape was cut using one of the dies in the set and then  popped up on the card .  The garland is colored with blends on crumb cake cardstock.  The stamp is rather long so I used my Stamperatus to stamp it to make sure I got a good image and besides I didn't have a long enough block.

Hope this little Halloween tease gets you in the mood for more Halloween crafting.  Lots of SPOOKY products in the catalog to choose from take a look at and if you find something that you just gotta have remember it's Sale-a-bration and $50.00 will get you a FREE item.

Today I would like to share a tag I made using the Peace Deer Bundle  156331 on page 26 of the July-December Mini Catalog.  It includes a stamp set and a punch. The coordinating  DSP can be found on page 8 of the Sale-a-bration catalog.  If you purchase $50.00 of products it's FREE.

This tag would be perfect for a masculine gift all year long and it was easy to make. 
Crumb Cake card stock base desired size
DSP cut using stitched rectangle dies
punch stamped deer and antlers from stamp set with Memento ink
Cinnamon Cider Blends and Ink
Stamp sentiment and snowflakes with Cinnamon Cider ink on Crumb Cake strip
Evening Evergreen Ribbon

Put it all together and you've got a simply gorgeous gift tag. This would be easy to make in bulk.
I did the math and if you just purchase the products to make this tag you would have enough to met the $50.00 minimum to get the FREE DSP.
I'M just saying.

  Pillowbox Penguin 


Stampin' Up! Penguin Playmates DSP and Pillowbox Dies

Hello!   Isn't this penguin so adorable?  I made this treat box to show off this FREE DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalog that coordinates with the stamp set and punch bundle that is featured on page 33 of the July-December Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up thinks of everything the punch not only punches out the stamped penguin images but it also punches out the images in the DSP, which is what I have done with my treat box.

Product list below

Penguin Place Bundle

Pillowbox Dies

Fresh Freesia (FF) card stock, ink pad and ribbon

In Color DSP FF desired pattern 1 1/4"

Penguin Playmates DSP

Here's how I made it:

First I die cut the Pillowbox out of the 1/2 sheet of FF cardstock.  Before I constructed the box I randomly stamped the snowflakes from the stamp set in FF  I also stamped the hat and scarf and fussy cut them.  Since I was going to use a belly band I glued the ends together with Tombow glue.

For belly band take the patterned 1 1/4" strip of patterned In Color DSP and secure it around the box so it can be slipped easily off the box.  Punch the penguin from the Playful Playmates DSP.  Attach the scarf and the hat with glue dots.  Adhere ribbon in a zig-zag with glue dots to the belly band and then place the penguin popped up with dimensionals.  Put sentiment of choice and add some bling.

Hope this will inspire you to use this cute little guy in you Holiday crafting.
