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.

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Halloween Cuties

CreateFA15HopWelcome
 

Our theme this week on the Saturday Create with Connie and Mary Blog Hop is “Halloween Cuties”!  Halloween doesn’t have to be scary…there are lots of cute little monsters and costumes out there!  This is super quick and easy card idea!

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Pumpkin Pie cardstock, folded in half.
  • A 1-1/2 x 3-3/4 piece of Halloween Night Designer Paper was added to the bottom of a 3-3/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Some Black Baker’s Twine was wrapped around the Whisper White cardstock several times to hide the seam.
  • The pumpkins from Spooky Fun were stamped with Tangerine Tango Ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock, the faces with Memento Blak Ink, then cut with the Halloween Scenes Framelits.
  • Happy Halloween greeting was curved on the clear block and stamped with Memento Black over the pumpkins.
  • A trio of Halloween Night Enamel Dots are scattered on the front.

 

That’s it!!!  SUPER easy, huh?

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Halloween Colors

CreateFA15HopWelcome
 

Our theme this week on the Saturday Create with Connie and Mary Blog Hop is “HALLOWEEN COLORS”!  I must admit that I went away from the usual colors of orange and black this week.  I love the addition of purple over the past few years, so I went with it!

 

spooky-fun
 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Perfect Plum cardstock folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic Black cardstock.
  • On the 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 Smoky Slate cardstock layer, large Circle Framelit was cut from Crushed Curry cardstock and sponged around the edges with Pumpkin Pie Ink.  The spooky tree from the Halloween Scene Edgelits was placed across the front.
  • One of the houses from Halloween Night DSP was hand-cut and added next to the tree.  The windows were colored with the Crushed Curry Marker.
  • The witch was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Smoky Slate, then cut with the Edgelits, colored with Perfect Plum, Basic Gray and Crushed Curry Markers, then added to the front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Two bats were stamped at the top left corner and the greeting was stamped in the bottom right with Memento Black Ink.
  • Finally, some Halloween Night Enamel Dots were added to the front for a little bling!

Control Freaks Sept 2016 Happy Fall

freakwelcome2013
It’s time for this month’s Tour de Freaks blog hop!  This month we are featuring Happy Fall Y’all…and that includes Halloween!  You’ve probably just come from Wendy Weixler’s fabulous blog…love her projects!  If you are arriving prior to September 20th, not all links may be working yet!

 

So, who doesn’t adore the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set?  I’ve done a series of different cards using these fun images on my blog!  Here’s the latest one!  I was at World Market over the weekend and they had tons of sugar skulls and decorations!  It put me in mind of the skeleton in Cookie Cutter Halloween.  Then this weekend someone else on Facebook I saw had the same idea!  Too funny.  But, here’s my rendition of a sugar skeleton using the fun Mini Treat Bag Thinlet and Cookie Cutter Halloween and Spooky Fun stamp sets.

Here it is opened up with a “card” inside.

Since I was babysitting my grandkids today, I didn’t know if I’d have time, but at the last minute, I decided to do a little coordinating treat holder.  I used two of the smaller sections of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlet in order to get a skinny treat bag!  I also cut it down in size so it fit one of the smaller Hershey Mini Bars!

 

sept-2016-cookie-cutter-halloween-4
Here are the details:

  • The Mini Treat Bag base is cut from the plaid print in Halloween Night Designer Series Paper package and put together with Tear and Tape Adhesive.
  •   A 1-1/2 x 8-1/2 belly band of coordinating DSP is around around the bag.
  • A scallop circle is cut from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper with the Layering Circles Framelits and a Basic Black circle was cut to fit inside.  They are popped up on the front of the bag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The skeleton from Cookie Cutter Christmas was stamped with Memento Black Ink, the colored with Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizazz and Basic Black Markers, adding swirls and designs like the sugar skulls.  It was punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and adhered on front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A bow tie was punched from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper and added to the neck with a Mini Glue Dot.
  • The greeting was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Crushed Curry and cut with the Layering Circles Framelits, then sponged around the edges with Pumpkin Pie and added to the scallop Basic Black circle on the front.
  • The bats were stamped directly on the DSP with Memento Black Ink.
  • Inside, the Pumpkin Pie cardstock had a 3/4 x 3-3/4 strip of DSP to the bottom, with a 1/4″ strip of Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper added on top.
  • Happy Halloween from Spooky Fun was added with Memento Black Ink, and a second sugar skeleton was added to the bottom!
  • A smaller Basic Black circle was cut to use as the pull-up tab at the top.

 

OK…next up is Cindy Elam, I know you will LOVE her projects, then continue on around the tour until you complete the tour and are back here!  I’m sure you’ll get lots of great ideas from my fellow Control Freak Swappers!

Here are some details:

  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Smoky Slate, some speckles from Timeless Texture were stamped with Smoky Slate Ink.
  • The moon was punched with the 2″ Circle Punch from Daffodil Delight and sponged with Pumpkin Pie Ink around the edges.
  • The pumpkins and large bat were stamped with Memento Black Ink and cut with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits, along with the spooky tree from Basic Black cardstock.  I trimmed the length of the ground a little bit.
  • I stamped a couple of the smaller bats around the moon with Memento Black Ink.
  • Finally, the word “eeek!” was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
