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).
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.
Stamps: Festive Flurry Bundle (#133285 clear and includes the Festive Flurry Framelits)
Card Stock: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Whisper White, Winter Frost Specialty DSP (#132341)
