Halloween cards and treats!
Do you need some ideas for your Halloween cards and treats? Check out these samples using the newest products from the 2015 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up!
This card was a project for my stamp camps last week and was cased with a few changes from the sample on page 39 of the Holiday Catalog. I used Perfect Plum cardstock and embossed it with the new Woodland Embossing Folder (#139673 $8.50). It is also available as a bundle with the Among the Branches stamp set (for the greeting, birds and spooky eyes) for a savings of 15% (bundle #140872 $21.50). The greeting was stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink and die-cut with the Circles Framelits and Big Shot.
This card is going to be a project for my October stamp camp and uses the adorable Halloween Treat stamp set (also available as a bundle option with the Boo to You Framelits – #140840 $38.25 clear mount). The background is sponged with Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzzleberry and Pumpkin Pie inks.
This little Halloween Treat uses the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper die-cut with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits (#137547 $40). That girly skull is also from the Halloween Treat stamp set
Below are some of the swaps I received from the Stampin’ Up! Founders Circle event. I wasn’t able to attend but a sweet friend swapped for me – thank you Lori Heiling! These are some really awesome Halloween cards and treats:
Don’t you love how the “BOO!” belly band slips off and reveals the treat inside?
I really like the crisp, white background and the use of Washi Tape and the new Black Glimmer Paper.
You can see this card inspired my Halloween card with the sponged background
This card opens and then the greeting tucks just behind the “BOO” for a fun display. I think this is also called an Easel card.
I’m going to have to try to figure this card out for my customers. I’m pretty sure the background is sponged first (with the moon being masked) and then embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder and the raised edges are ink with a brayer. I think the birds are stamped last.
I received over 100 swaps so I’ll have a lot more ideas to share with you over the next few months 😀
