When I was young, Halloween was  my second favorite holiday (Christmas being the number one). My favorite memories of Halloween include, candy, Jack-O-Lanterns, scary stories (not too scary), candy, witches costumes, ghosts, bats, more candy…. well, you get the picture .We didn't eat candy very often only on special occasions. The exception was Halloween when it seemed we had enough to satisfy our sweet tooth for the whole year!  So for my first project, I have created a Halloween card using some of my favorite items from Stampin' Up!'s 2013 Holiday Catalog(ue).

Stampin' Up! Jeannine Tarrio Wacky Watercooler  Halloween Bash

Stamps:  Halloween Bash (#130580)

Card Stock: Pumpkin Pie 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", Basic Black 1 1/2" x 5 1/2", Whisper White 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"

Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate

Accessories: Witches' Brew Washi Tape (#132156), Chevron Border Punch (#132154), Big Shot, Chalk Talk Framelits, Simply Pressed Clay, Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds, Tangerine Tango Baker's Twine (from Tag a Bag Accessory Kit), Stampin' Dimensionals


Next for my favorite holiday, I created a card, matching envelope and treat jar. Aren't they gorgeous? I LOVE the Frosted Finishes Embellishments! Pop them on Stampin' Up!'s Silver Glimmer Paper and watch everyone's expression. They are more gorgeous in real life than in my pictures or the catalog. On the card I stamped the background with Stampin' Up!'s  Festive Flurry stamp set and Silver Metallic Encore Pad, then added the Winter Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the bottom.  The rest is just stampinng, die cutting and layering.

The jar is recycled from Target, I think there were nuts in it originally. I filled the jar with Hersey Kisses which looked gorgeous with the Silver embellishments.

Jean, I love the Hallowe'en card.  You've certainly managed to use a good number of Holiday Catalogue products in the making of it.  I really like the way you've cut the sentiment out with the Chalk Talk Framelit.  That works very well and make a great focal point for the card.  

I have to begin making envelopes to match my cards now that I have the envelope punch.  It certainly looks wonderful and completes the card so well.  Love that Festive Flurry bundle!

That treat jar is perfect and I'm going to have to try making one.  I love the way the Winter Post Specialty Designer Paper transforms a plain jar into a real gift.  Thank you so much for sharing.

Wow, a gift and matching card & envelope- all gorgeous!!  I'm with you, Jean – those Festive Flurries embellishments are 'da bomb' when it comes to bling šŸ™‚

I like how you used the new Chevron Punch in your Hallowe'en card – so cool!

Thanks so much for sharing.

I remember when I was a little girl those little cello bags with the spiced orange (clove, I think) and black (licorice) candies. They also had jelly beans the same way! Thanks for bringing the memories to mind. Your projects are all lovely. I really liked the recycled jar. Aren't they fun?
