The Last of Halloween

The last of the Halloween treat holders!  This is the Petal Cone die done up with Out on a Limb –

Wow!  That picture is blurry!  How did that happen?  Here’s a close up –

You can see that I added the “moon” but it didn’t quite fit.  I’m thinking the kids won’t care!  Those are rhinestones on the cat eye – what was I doing when I photograph this?  The DSP is retired (I am swamped in retired DSP!)  And if I don’t use up all the current DSP I have – I’ll be swamped in it too! 

Stamp set – Out on a Limb
card stock – Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White,
Ink – Basic Black
Etc – retired DSP, rhinestones, Petal Cone die, Pumpkin Pie ribbon (retired) 

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

Halloween Treat Box

Here’s another idea for using the bat clips (the bat punch is in the clearance rack!) for Halloween treats.  I used Out on a Limb from the Holiday Mini and Pick Your Poison Designer Series paper to decorate some gable boxes and added the clips at the top.

On some I did the spiders and on some I did the bats.  The entire box is spritzed with Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black and the top piece has scalloped Basic Black in a “roof” sort of look. 

The flower is made with the Daisy #2 die –

Then I added the clip –

Stamp set – Out on a Limb
card stock – Basic Black, Pick Your Poison DSP
Ink – Basic Black
Stampin Write Markers- Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Etc – Scallop border punch, Bat punch, clothes pin, Web embossing folder,Bold Bright button, Daisy #2 die, spritzer, gable box

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

Spooky Treats

Here are a few things we’re making at my Spooky Treats class tomorrow.  The first is an extended candy wrapper made from the Candy Wrapper die.  

And a #2 box with a special bow-

Aren’t those bats great? 

That’s my funky bow.  It’s going to be a spooky time!  Scrappin’ tonight – and I can’t wait!  Love the time spent with my friends, ink and stamps!  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

She’s Flying

I hope you’re enjoying the long weekend and finding some creative time!  I’ve been trying to figure out a way to make this little witch fly across a candy wrapper without it being more work than a candy wrapper is worth!  She’s from the Holiday Mini set Out on a Limb. I finally put her on a window sheet so she can fly across the sky when the candy is pulled up.

This candy wrapper is made with a 6 x 5 3/4 piece of Basic Gray card stock.  Score it at 1/4, 2 3/4, 3 and 5 1/2. This creates your “box.”  I used the 4″ circle die to make the moon and wheeled a 2 x 2 1/2 piece of Basic Gray with the Haunting Hill jumbo wheel to make a false front.  Attach a 1/2″ strip of window sheet to the ribbon pull using a brad.  The cute little witch is attached to the window sheet with Dimensionals.

Stamp sets – Out on a Limb, Wicked Cool, Haunting Hill jumbo wheel
card stock – Basic Gray, Whisper White
ink – Jet Black Stazon, Bashful Blue, Basic Gray
Stampin Write Markers – Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron. Blush Blossom, Lucky Limeade
Etc – 4″ circle die, window sheet, Basic Black grosgrain, Crop a Dile, 1/2 circle punch, Black brad, Dimensionals

Enjoy Labor Day – hope you’re not working too hard!  We’ve gone from hot, humid weather to cold rain.  No complaints.  I know some of you are having horrific weather.  Samantha and I are decorating for my Open House tomorrow.  I’ll get my camera out today and show you what we’ve been up to   Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran


I cased this card from the Holiday Mini – which starts tomorrow!  Since I didn’t have the Lucky Limeade ribbon, I did the card in Pear Pizzazz.  This little gal reminds me of Samantha from Bewitched!  Check out the mustached pumpkins in this set – how funny!

Stamp set – Out on a Limb, Wicked Cool
card stock – Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, More Mustard
Ink – Jet Black Stazon, Pear Pizzazz
Stampin Write Markers – Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard, So Saffron, Blush Blossom
Etc – Pear Pizzazz ribbon, Scallop oval punch, jewels, Scallop Border edge punch

So while I had this set out, I made a little wrapper for the new 1 x 8 cello bags.  Instead of attaching it to the top, I made a card stock band and wrapped it around the middle.  I think it works better to attached  it to the top – some of the cello bags have opened a little handling.  Still cute

Maybe I’ll just move it up to the top to help secure the flap. 

Today is the last day of the Summer Mini and the Buy 3 Get One Free promotion!  Check your Designer Series Paper stash before it’s too late – you’ll be sad if you miss out!  I always want more paper!  Enjoy the day – Hugs, Fran
