Cookie Cutter Dracula Treat

Cookie_cutter_halloween_sticksHow cute is this little dracula?  I just love him!!  He is the focal point of this fun Halloween Treat.

I started with the 2" x 6" Cello Bags and added some fun pixie sticks I got from Oriental Trading.  I wrapped the treat with a 1" x 4" strip of Perfect Plum polka dot paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I then wrapped the belly band with some of the Elegant Eggplant Baker's Twine and looped it through one of the Mini Tassels and the die cut greeting.

Super quick and easy treat!!

Dracula was colored Stampin' Write Markers in the following colors: Perfect Plum, Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie.  He was cropped with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

Paper Pumpkin alternates

I wanted to create some cards with the September Paper Pumpkin kit and I came up with these two.

2016_sept_pp_alternate_group
They both use the same layout, I simply changed the colors to create a different look. 

I chose Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake for the fallish card.  I used the Seasonal Decorative Masks to create a striped background on my Soft Suede layer.

I placed the mask so that it would create straight lines rather than diagonal and used Crumb Cake ink as the Soft Suede was a bit too dark for my liking.

2016_sept_pp_alternate1_close

I stamped the sun image in Crushed curry and then dipped a Sponge Dauber into the Soft Suede and gently pounced the edge of it in the middle of the sun.

A Delicate White Doily and some Gold Sequins finish it off.

2016_sept_pp_alternate1
I used Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black on this Halloween Card.  I used the same Delicate White Doily, Black Solid Baker's Twine and the Metallic Sequin Assortment for the black sequin stars.

Large Letters Alphabet to Spell BOO!!

I recently purchased the Large Letters Alphabet and I am thrilled with the size and ease of cutting.  I designed this simple card for a recent Card Buffet and I just love it!!  I started with a base of Pumpkin Pie and added a layer of Whisper White.  Another layer was added using the Basic Black diagonal stripe pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.

Large_letters_halloween_boo

I wrapped some Basic Black ribbon around the seam and then added my gorgeous die cut letters.  I used the super sparkly Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper for the letters and it really shines.

Need inspiration, check out my Halloween & Fall Ideas

Large_letters_halloween_boo_close

I also used the Spooky Fun Bundle which includes the Spooky Fun stamp set and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits.

Large_letters_halloween_boo_close_witchI die cut the witch out of Basic Black cardstock and popped her up on a Stampin' Dimensional.  Then I chose one of the bats from the stamp set and stamped them flying around her.  Super cute and super easy, my kind of card. :-)

Halloween Night Treats!

Here are some adorable treats that use the 3x6 Gusseted Cello Bags, Halloween Night Baker's Twine, Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper, Gold Binder Clips and the Spooky Fun Bundle.

Purchase the Spooky Fun Bundle which includes the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits and you will save 10%!!   Spooky Fun Photopolymer Bundle [144437]

Halloween_night_treats1
You start with a 2-7/8 x 9 strip of the Halloween Night DSP and score it at 1", 3" and 7-3/4".  Fold on all the score lines and while holding onto the front edge, slip it into one of the 3x6 Cello Bags.  Use a small piece of Scotch Tape to secure the seam on the bottom.  The top 1-1/4" will be outside the bag and you will fold it to the front and attach your decorative piece to this after you add a bit of shred and some treats. 

Halloween_night_treat_closeMy decorative piece consists of a #6 circle cut from our NEW Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper and a #7 scallop circle cut from Basic Black.

Download Layering_framelits_sizes

The tree is cut from Basic Black and the fence is cut from our NEW Copper Foil Sheets.

I added the fence and tree to the Glimmer circle and trimmed off the excess.  Notice that I let the limbs of the tree hang over on the left edge, looks pretty cool!!

I stamped the bat and gravestones in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Basic Gray Cardstock and cropped them with dies from the same set.

I tied both Baker's Twine colors to the top of the Gold Binder Clip.

Cookie Cutter Halloween - Dracula

Here is another adorable image from the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set. This cute Dracula even has pointy ears! I stamped him in Basic Black Archival Ink so I could color him with my Stampin' Write Markers.

Cookie_cutter_dracula

Color his outfit with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Perfect Plum Stampin' Write Markers.  Wrap a 4" strip of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon around the white layer and adhere it to the back. Tie a bow around the ribbon with the Pumpkin Pie/Basic Black Baker's Twine.

Here are the measurements for each layer:
Basic Black: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
Perfect Plum: 3-5/8" x 5"
Basic Gray: 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"
Whisper White: 3-5/8 x 2"; 3/8" x 2"
Halloween Night DSP - 1-1/4" x 2"

Can you see all the colorful dots on my piece of the Halloween Night DSP?  I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color some of the tiny white polka dots so the paper would match Dracs clothes.

Cookie_cutter_dracula_closeThe paper actually looked like this before I added my colored polka dots.
