Halloween Treat

Happy Saturday!  It’s that time again for another Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  This week, with Halloween right around the corner, the design team is doing Halloween Treats!

On Tuesday I made a fun little card using the Sweet Home set.  When I sat down to make my little treat box for today…I was thinking about that fun card and decided to use it as my inspiration for today.  I was pretty tired when I sat down to make this last night so I kept things pretty simple.

I started with a pizza box, the Spooky Nights Halloween dsp and my card from Tuesday and this is what I came up with!

Here’s the details…

  • Put together a pizza box
  • Spooky Nights dsp – 7/8 x 12 and 7/8 x 3 1/2, wrap around box putting the 3 1/2 piece on the back.
  • Spooky Nights dsp – 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
  • Spooky Nights dsp – two pieces 3/8 x 3 1/2, add to other Spooky Nights piece on an angle, layer panel onto Basic Black 3 3/8 x 3 3/8 and add to box top
  • Whisper White – 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, stamp solid larger dot in Pumpkin Pie and Peek-a-b00 Peach, line of three dots in Smoky Slate, and Trick or Treat in Memento Black, layer onto Basic Black 2 3/8 x 2 3/8, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp two ghosts and bats using Memento Black, cut our and add to box top adding ghosts using dimensionals
  • Add Black Rhinestones
  • Cut out a top part of a cat front the dsp and add to bottom of panel
  • Wrap Black Baker’s Twine around box to finish off.

Sweet Home

So it’s time again for the SUO challenge and this time our theme was Something Sweet.  Well this time of year when I hear something sweet…I think “Trick or Treat…Something Sweet” so I went with Trick or Treat!  LOL!!!

I didn’t get any of the Halloween sets this year (well…I did get the pumpkins) but that didn’t do it for me.  I was looking through my catalog and came across this set…PERFECT!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Spooky Night dsp dotted print – 1/2 x 4 1/2 – add on a diagonal and trim ends
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 stamp dot in Pumpkin Pie and Peek-a-boo Peach, stamp row of three dots in Memento Black, layer onto Basic Black – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card front
  • Stamp ghost 2 times and bat 3 times in Memento Black, cut out and add (ghosts using dimensionals)
