Toil & Trouble

Fun with the Cauldron Bubble bundle and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper!

Halloween Treats, Cauldron Bubble, Toil & Trouble DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This past week’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live featured the Cauldron Bubble bundle and coordinating Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to make these fun Diaper Fold treat pouches!

To make the holder, you need a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper!  And then you can embellish any way you choose!  I used the coordinating Cauldron Bubble Stamp set and dies to make these.  Did you know, the dies cut some of the images perfectly from the Designer Series Paper as well as the stamped images?  How cool is that!

Here’s the video showcasing this fold:

Throw Back Thursday – Halloween Style

Hi!  Today I am showcasing a treat pouch made using some retired Halloween Products.  I am working on some goodies for a craft fair and decided it would be good to use up some retired Designer Series Paper I had laying around.

Diaper Fold, Halloween Treat Pouch, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up! SU!

These little guys are from the Cookie Cutter Halloween Set from a year or two ago.  I loved this set – they are just adorable.  The diaper fold pouch uses a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper and is pretty easy to put together.  These little guys will hold a mini candy bar – perfect for giving coworkers, friends and neighbors.

Here’s a closer look:

Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up!, Treat Pouch

I’ll be updating this pouch to current product on Sept 10th’s Facebook Live – where I’ll also show you how to make it!  Hope you’ll join me at 7:30pm EST over here.

I hope you enjoyed today’s little Throwback post.

Witchy Treat

Hi!  How are you today?  I am doing fabulous!  I had so much fun last night doing the Holiday Catalog Party on Facebook – hoping those of you that joined me, had fun, too!

Today, I have an adorable Treat Tube holder to share.  The idea came from BJ Peters is so easy to make!  We will be making these at the September 30 Stamp Buffet!

Halloween, Treat Holder, Spooky Cat, Witch, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The hat is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink (stamped off on scrap once).  The buckle is colored with Crushed Curry marker and then the entire hat is colored with the clear Wink of Stella glitter pen (which doesn’t really show in this picture).

To make the holder, simply score a 4x 7 7/8″ piece of cardstock at 3″, 3 5/8″, and 4 1/4″ along the 7 7/8″ edge.  Then cut between the score lines at 1 5/8″ and 2 3/8″ along the 4″ edge.  This creates the little holder for the tube. Place adhesive between the second and third score lines outside the cut lines.

Here’s a picture showing the score lines, cut lines, and adhesive placement.

Such a cute way to pass out Halloween treats this year!

I am hosting a Stamp Buffet on Saturday, Sept 30 – three sessions 10am-Noon, 1pm-3pm, 4pm-6pm EST.  If you are interested, please contact me and I’ll be happy to send you more details!

Halloween Treats

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  Today I have a little holder to share with you!  I saw these adorable holders designed by Kelly Acheson – here is a link to her video.  Had to give it a try for Halloween.

Seasonal Chums, Pumpkins, Cats, Spooky Cat, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Treat Holders, Hershey Nugget, Halloween

Are these not the cutest?  Here is the back side of the pumpkin:

Seasonal Chums, Halloween, Treat Holder, Pumpkins, Stampin' Up!, SU!

These little guys hold 6 nuggets each!  I made a bunch of these to sell at a craft fair – I can’t wait to see how they do!

The pumpkins are stamped in Basic Black Archival ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock.  I colored the leaves with an Old Olive marker and the faces with a Basic Black marker.   The cat is actually just punched from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper!  No stamping needed!  The moon behind the cat is a 2 1/4″ circle of Daffodil Delight.  The Designer Series Paper on both boxes is also from the Spooky Night pack and is 1/2″ by 8 3/4″ long.

I used Tear & Tape to assemble my holder.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Patterned Pumpkins

Hi! Today I have a card for you made with the Pick A Pumpkin stamp set and Patterned Pumpkins coordinating thinlets.  Did you know you can purchase these two items as a bundle and save 10%?  I love a deal!

Pumpkins, Pick a Pumpkin, Patterned Pumpkins, Halloween, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The pumpkins are stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink and the stem is colored with Old Olive.  The faces are stamped with Basic Black Archival ink.  A quick tip if you want to make multiples – line up the pumpkins on one block – leaving enough room in between each pumpkin for the metal thinlet to cut it out – and stamp them together.  Then, line up the faces on the pumpkins where you want them to be (do not ink them yet), then place your clear acrylic block over the faces to pick them up at one time.  This way they are aligned on your block and you can stamp all three at the same time.   This will also allow you to die cut all three pumpkins at the same time!

The sentiment is from Seasonal Chums stamp set and the bat is die cut from the coordinating Seasonal Tags framelits.  I love how our products coordinate!  The border for the sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  It is inked in Basic Black while the sentiment is stamped in Old Olive.   These are then punched out with the Classic Label punch.

The Designer Series Paper on the left is  a piece from the Merry Little Christmas paper pack.  The patterns in this pack aren’t just for Christmas!  The card is finished with a little bit of the Basic Black Vintage Crochet Trim.

Don’t forget, you can order a sample of all the Holiday Catalog Designer Series Papers.  Just fill out the form below by Sept 10th.  I will send a paypal invoice to you for payment.   Each share is $17.50 plus $5 S/H if you are not local to Northboro, MA.  This is for US customers only.  You will get a total of 56 6×6 pieces of Designer Series Paper.

A Little Nugget

Cake for you!  I had seen the Nugget Cake tutorial on Splitcoaststampers recently and thought this would be perfect for Halloween!  I have a few friends who love this holiday and thought this would be the perfect treat.

SU! Halloween Scenes Thinlets, Halloween Night DSP The hardest part was finding round containers to use to support the cake – but I did – and they were all from Stampin’ Up! products!  For the top layer, I used the lid of an empty Embossing Powder container, the middle layer uses an empty button container and the bottom layer uses two empty ribbon rolls.  Great way to recycle those empty containers!

The Designer Series Paper used to wrap around the nuggets is from the Halloween Nights Specialty paper – great way to use up scraps as each nugget is wrapped in a 1″ x 3″ piece of DSP.  All the embellishments were die cut with the Halloween Scenes Framelits.  I used a retired brad and the retired Circle Framelits for the cake topper as well as the separate layers.

So happy I gave this tutorial a try – what fun to make and I think the recipient will be very happy!

Team Stamp It! Halloween Hop

sept2016banner

Hi! Today I am hopping with the Team Stamp It! Halloween Blog Hop!  I hope you are enjoying  the great ideas every one is sharing!

Today I have a card and a treat holder!

SU! Spooky Fun

The card uses the Spooky Fun bundle – love the die cuts for this bundle – so many possibilities for that tree!

Here’s a close-up of the card:

SU! Spooky Fun I created a mask for the moon using the 1 3/4″ circle punch and then brayered the background using Rich Razzleberry, Island  Indigo and Night of Navy ink.  After removing the mask, I lightly sponged So Saffron on the moon and stamped the witch silhouette.  I also added the tombstones and some bats.

For the Pouch, I used the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper.

flyingwitchpouch_small_wm

Here is a link to the directions for making the pouch:  SCS Diaper Fold Pouch   You can make these any size – just start with a square piece of paper.  For my pouch, I started with a 6×6″ square.

I wanted to coordinate with the card, so I made a moon with the witch to attach to the front and added the trick or treat sentiment.  Very quick and easy!

Hope you liked today’s Halloween inspiration!

Too Cute to Spook

Hi!  How are you today?  Hope you are doing well.  I have a blended fold card for you today – it’s a combination of a Z-fold and Joy Fold card.  I went with a Halloween theme as well  because this little guy is just too cute.

SU! Cookie Cutter Halloween, Spooky Fun

He is from the Cookie Cutter Halloween set in the Holiday Catalog and there is a matching punch to go with it!  The sentiments are from the Spooky Fun set – also a great Halloween set that has coordinating Framelits.  The Design Series Paper is from the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Paper pack.

Here are directions on how I did the folds:

  • Base Card: 4 1/4 x 11 – Score at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″ along the 11″ side.
  • Fold up on the 5 1/2″ score and down on the 8 1/4″ score.  (This makes the Z-fold)
  • For the Vampire panel – Cardstock is 3″ x 8″ – score at 4″ along the 8″ side.
  • Fold on the 4″ score and attach to the back panel of the Z-fold.

Here is a side view of the card:

vampirejoyzfold_side_small_wm

The little “eek!” circle is placed to allow you to tuck the corner of the front panel under to keep the card upright..  (This is the Joy Fold part).

What do you think?
