Cookie Cutter Halloween

Happy Halloween!!!!

 

I made some of these Cookie Cutter Halloween and Spooky Fun favors for my grandson, Carter’s, preschool class.   Plus, I tucked one of these in the little Halloween “goodie” bags I made for the two older grand kids filled with little toys and candy.  I figured the two babies wouldn’t mind not getting treats this year since they are only a few weeks/months old.  Inside was a packet of SweetTart Skulls & Bones.  I did them in a matchbook favor style.

Here are the details:

  • The base is 3 x 8, scored at 3-1/2 & 7-1/2.  Staple the package of candy inside the tab area at the bottom.
  • Inside, I also stamped some bats and spider web with Memento Black Ink.
  • The Halloween Nights designer Paper was cut 2-3/4 x 3 and added to the front of the treat.
  • The greeting “Here’s bootiful treat” was stamped with Memento Black on the DSP and a couple bats from Spooky Fun stamp set.
  • A couple strips of retired Halloween Washi Tape was added to the background.  (The new Halloween Washi Tape would work great…I just had forgotten to order any!)
  • The skeleton from Cookie Cutter Halloween was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White, watercolored lightly with Smoky Slate Marker and AquaPainter and the eyes colored with Daffodil Delight Marker.  It was punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
  • Some Black Thread was wrapped around in circles and added to the back of the skeleton with a Stampin’ Dimensional and then added to the front with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A small heart was punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper and added to the skeleton.
  • Some Washi Tape was added to the bottom of the matchbook to hide the staple and help keep it tightly closed.

They are quite cute!  I still have a few to hand out tonight to some special friends.

I haven’t been feeling well (migraine) the past few days, so I’m posting one of cards we did for my Holiday Catalog Preview class a couple weeks ago!  Just didn’t have the energy to work on a different design and this one fit the challenge!

Grand Achievers Mediterranean Blog Hop August 2016

GV Blog Header
 

I’m so excited to be able to play along with the Grand Achievers’ Mediterranean Blog Hop this month!  Such a group of talented stampers!  Our theme this month is previewing the new Holiday Catalog.  I’m sure you’ll see a TON of great ideas to inspire you!  Customers can begin ordering from the catalog next week on September 1st!  You may have started the blog hop at my blog, CONNIE BABBERT, or come from the person before me.  You can continue around the hop by clicking on the names at the bottom of this post.

 

For my card, I was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.  I knew  I could re-do it using the new Cookie Cutter Halloween and Ghoulish Grunge Stamp Sets and punch!  Isn’t it fun?  I love how the drawers of the dresser are crooked!  lol!

 

Cookie Cutter Halloween (2)
 

Here are the details…really a very simple card!

 

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Basic Black.  The bottom front and back were punched with the Decorative Label Punch to form the legs of the dresser.
  • White Craft Ink was sponged all around the edges.
  • The spider web from Ghoulish Grunge Stamp Set was stamped with White Craft Ink in the upper right and lower left corners.
  • Three 3/4 x 3″ drawers were cut from Basic Black, sponged with White Craft Ink and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Mummy and Skeleton from Cookie Cutter Halloween were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White, highlighted with Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker, and colored the eyes and face with Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.  The legs were cut off so they fit in the drawers when adhered.
  • The greeting “Have some spooky fun” is from the new stamp set Spooky Fun.  (If I had planned better, I would just have used the spider web in that stamp set, too, instead of introducing a third stamp set.  lol!)
  • Finally, the small circles from the Metallic Enamel Shapes were placed for the drawer knobs.

 

SOOO much spooky fun, I think!  OK…continue on around the blog hop by clicking on the name below mine, CONNIE BABBERT, on the list below!
