Creation Station: Halloween Fun!




Hey there! It's time for another project tour from the Creation Station Designers!

Let's talk Halloween this week - shall we?  We're going to focus on the Fall Fest Stamp set, and the Tiny Treat boxes from Stampin' Up!



I don't go crazy for Halloween, but it is a fun holiday, and my kids love it!  For the candy, I'm sure.  So let's take a look at a few things I came up with. (don't mind the bad photography today....not sure why I've got a "halo" effect around the bottom of my photos.....)

First up is this really cute card.  

I started with a black panel and added some stars using embossing paste and our stars decorative mask.  

The pumpkins from Fall Fest were perfect on here.  I layered them with Stampin' Dimensionals, doubling the dimensionals to be two thick for the squatty pumpkin in front.  This really helped to add depth.

I finished it off with some Blackberry Bliss ribbon and a silver basic button.

Next up, I created a treat holder using our Hamburger box die.  This went together quickly.  



I stamped the ghost onto black cardstock with Whisper White ink and heat embossed it with white powder.  Added a little pumpkin friend, and tied the box up with some burlap ribbon, Blackberry Bliss ribbon and a bit of Old Olive two tone trim.


Lastly, I created a simple, but cute treat container.  (this would be perfect to gift to a neighbor, a teacher, or keep on your kitchen counter.....or on your stamp desk!)


I wrapped some DSP from Monster Medley around the jar. ( You can grab these jars from your box stores on the cheap!)  The 12" strip of DSP did not go all the way around the jar, so I had to piece it together.  To cover up the seams, I die cut a piece of black cardstock with a Windows framelit, and trimmed off 3 sides, so I just had the top curve.  This kind of mimicked the shape in the jar.  It also gave me a non-busy base to add my ghost and pumpkin.

To complete the jar, I added some Blackberry Bliss ribbon and a tag - die cut from the Hamburger Box die, and stamped with Enjoy from Num-Num.

I hope you are inspired to create something fun for the upcoming Halloween Festivities!
