Haunted House

cookie-cutter-halloween-01

Time for little spooks and ghouls!  I needed a simple treat for some little boys so I used a file from svgcuts.com called Santa’s Sweets to create a Halloween house filled with lollipops.  The stamp set is Cookie Cutter Halloween and the house is made with Halloween Night Specialty  DSP.

Crazy 4 Challenges – Sketch

PIU Midnight the Bat 02

This challenge uses the sketch (which I sort of followed!)  I started with a huge 6 x 8 card and Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Midnight the Bat and Halloween Scene dies. He is hanging out on Stampin Up’s Sliding Star Framelits so he spins around the tree branch.

Spinners are hard to put down!

The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Spooky fun and the DSP is the new Halloween Night Specialty paper.  Check out the other Crazies designs for this sketch!  Hugs, Fran

Halloween!  Spooky or cute?  That’s today’s Karen Burniston Designer Challenge.

piu-twist-circle-01

I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card the Karen Burniston’s new Labels and Circle die and her Halloween Clear stamp with the new Stampin Up Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment on 3 layers of the Labels and Circles dies and re-stacked them for the front.

And when you open the card –

A cute little Trick or Treat scene featuring the Twist Circle Pop Up die.  The ghosts and pumpkins are from the Halloween Charms die set.  I left the ghost as 3-D pieces so the pop up (!)

The little Trick or Treat bags are hand cut.  So I guess my answer to the challenge question – spooky or cute – is cute!  Make sure to check out the rest of the designer cards by going to Karen’s blog or Facebook page.  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Girly or Ghouly

I say “Ghouly!”

PIU Circle Accordion 04 closed

This challenge is a Halloween challenge – Girly or Ghouly.  I started with the Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Accordion Circle Card die, the Bat Stencil, Iron Fence Pop Up AND the Halloween Scene die!  Yep – I went a little crazy!

On the left inside panel I continued with the fence and spider – cutting out the center of the Accordion Circle die.

The center panel uses the Halloween Charms dies – ghost and pumpkins.  Love the 3-D ghost!

The bats and spiders are cut from Stampin UP’s Black Glimmer paper and the sentiment is from Spooky Fun.  And it was fun putting this scene together.  Make sure you check out Karen’s Facebook page and blog for more spooky or girly inspiration!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Day 2

PIU Halloween 01

Characters in Costumes – Day 2 🙂  And which holiday makes us think of costumes more than Halloween?  So starting with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 card, stamped with this awesome image from Stampin Up’s Six Sayings (hostess set in the Holiday Mini)

PIU Halloween 01 open

And here are the characters!  Everyone is dressed up in their costume for Halloween and popping up on a Lots of Pops die.   The All Season Tree is in the background.  The wagon is hand cut.

PIU Halloween 01 detail

Cheepers the Chicken is dressed as a cowboy. Chilly the Penguin is wearing an Owl mask.  William the Goat is wearing funny glasses and a bow tie.  And Cocoa the Horse is dressed up as bandit.

Hope there’s lots of chocolate involved!  Take time to check out all the other Characters in Costumes on Karen’s Facebook Page.  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston September Challenge Day One

Haunt Ya Later 05

 

This month’s Karen Burniston’s Design Challenge is Celebrate – with Frame Edges! I chose the Katie Label Accordion Album with the matching Katie Stars Frame Edges – and it’s a shaker card!  This “too cute to be scary” vampire is from the Haunt Ya Later set in the Holiday Mini.  He’s surrounded by Black Glimmer paper stars – the same stars from the frame – sequins, and some long glitter.  (I”m not really sure what to call it!)  The vampire is colored with Copics. I used the retired SU bat punch with more Glimmer paper and a BIG jewel!

Haunt Ya Later 05 open

 

The colors are a bit muted in the pictures because of the glare from the window sheet on the shaker.  The purple is Elegant Eggplant.  I love how the space on the Katie Label die accommodates so many things!  Check out Karen’s Facebook Page to see the rest of the team’s designs!  Hugs, Fran

Haunt Ya Later

Haunt Ya Later 01

 

A spooky treat!  This candy bar pull up is certainly looking more “cute” than “spook!”  The Mummy is the easiest design to make – strips of card stock, sponge the edges, start layering!   I stamped the sentiment from Haunt Ya Later and added to the front, added some 1″ eyes and little gogglie things – and it’s ready to scare and share 🙂

The Rubber Stamping and Scrapping Garage sale is this Friday and Saturday!  If you’re in Lexington, Ky you need to come check it out!

Hugs, Fran

Halloween Gift Bag

Witche's Night 01

 

And last but not least, my Halloween version of this bag!  I used the Witch’s Night stamp set and Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper.  The image and matting were cut with the Lots of Labels Framelit die.  This one is my favorite 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Halloween Baker’s Box

Baker's Box 01

 

A little Halloween Baker’s Box to fill with treats!  The Baker’s Box is so easy to put together!  The spider is an svg file from Miss Katie’s Cuttables with some extra circles added to the eyes – and some fun google eyes!  On the bottom, I used the scallop border punch and added more eyes.  The ribbon on the top is tied to one of the handles and the clothespin keeps the box shut.  That way you can open it without having to untie the ribbon.  Just something fun 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Pop It Ups Halloween

Is it too early for Halloween?

EDC front

1. Cut a piece of black card stock 5 1/2 x 7 1/4 and fold it in half to create your base.

2. Cut 2 pieces of Happy Haunting DSP Halloween paper (Holiday Mini catalog!) 3 3/8 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the inside.

Step 01

3. Place your Rectangular Pull Card die, matching the alignment tab, and cut out.

Step 02

4. Die cut and assemble Poppy the Owl making him as cute or scary as you’d like. Die cut 2 All Seasons Trees from black card stock.  Cut two 2″ circles from white or vanilla.

5. Trim off most of the branches from the trees (do them at the same time so they match) and adhere one to the front of the card to create a branch.  Add the circle as the moon and place Poppy on the branch.

6. Make 5 “bats” from the bow tie die in Props 2. Die cut the bow ties and use a hand held punch to punch the bottom of the wings.  Karen also has a little tutorial on creating bats from Cocoa the Horse’s hair!

Bats

7. Match up the second branch to the inside left of your card. Adhere a moon to the spinner on the inside and decorate with bats and die cut words using Alphabet 1 or Peel Off stickers!

EDC Inside 01

Cute or scary, it’s fun!  Hugs, Fran
