Holloween Favor Baskets

Although it is still 95 degrees during the day in Texas, the evenings are beginning to cool down and I'm really getting into the mood for fall projects.

Here are two Halloween treat baskets using Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set.  The treat baskets were cut using the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die in the Big Shot, The handle was punched using the Ribbon punch.  Click photo for a larger image.

Earlier this week I showed you samples of Halloween accent bottles using the Pick Your Poison Quick accents.  Great for Halloween decorating!  Look how well they coordinate with these little treat baskets.  Wouldn't they make great favors baskets for a Halloween party, for trick-or-treaters, or to fill with treats for your co-workers?  The Pick Your Poison self-adhesive Quick Accent labels apply quickly to bottles and jars turning them into great accents for the setting up a Halloween theme.  Click the photo for a closer look.

The Pick Your Poison Halloween Quick Accents are also available as a digital Download (125614) for use with My Digital Studio software , which means you can easily make multiples of the same label if you want to use them on your baskets, rather than a stamped image.  I love that Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to switch up how we use the wonderful design elements created by the Stampin' Up! artists.  I've said it before, but I believe the images get better every year!
If you're in the Houston, TX area, check out my upcoming class using these products from the Holiday Mini Catalog.
Let me know if you have any questions about any of these cards.

Spooky Bingo Bits make great Cello Bag Toppers

  • Order Tangerine Tango Stampin' Embossing Powder for Halloween projects, now!
  • Frightful Sight Halloween Designer Paper special: buy 3, get one free*

The best Holiday Mini Catalog I've ever seen from Stampin' Up! will be released in just a few days -- Sept 1.  I've been playing with more of the sets and products available early to Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  Click to enlarge images.

These are the new 1" X 8" narrow cellophane bags available beginning Sept 1.  Aren't they perfect for filling with rows of treats like gum balls, mints, chocolates, red hot cinnamon discs, Boston Baked Beans, Hot Tamales, Red Licorice Twists, Jujubes, colored pencils, marbles, or anything long and narrow.  The toppers I made use the Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp set from the main catalog along with the new 1" punch offered Sept 1 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Love these new holiday products!!  While I'm now ordering most of my stamp sets in clear mount, for sets like this, I prefer wood mount.  Yes, it takes up more room, but I think it saves time when you are stamping several pages of images at one time, like I did with this set (see photo below)

To order any of these Stampin' Up products on-line at my store, shipped direct to you address, click here.

  • Recipe:
  • Stamps:  Spooky Bingo Bits (123944 w, 123946 c)
  • Paper:  Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black
  • Ink:  VersaMark
  • Accessories:  1" square punch (124094- avail Sept 1), Narrow cellophane bags (124134 - avail. Sept 1),  Scallop Square Punch (119884), 1-1/8 square punch (non-Stampin' Up!),  Black Embossing Powder (109133), Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder (123106), Heat Tool (10005), Embossing Buddy (103083), Powder Pal tray(102197), Red Sticky Strip tape (104294)

I stamped and matted two images so that both the front and back side of these bag toppers were finished off. Here is a close up of some of the addition images I matted, ready to use as bag toppers or on cards.  And there are many more images in the set that I can't wait to use on other projects.

  I like stamping and embossing these smaller images.  I believe they retain their sharpness better when embossed.  Which makes it especially nice that Stampin' Up! offers Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder!  I completely missed this new embossing color in my first new catalog order.  Then I realized I already owned it since I had ordered it out of the Summer mini catalog!  Yeah!!  Click to enlarge photo, and take a look at the images on the left embossed with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.

Another new embossing color I'm anxious to break open is the new Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder.  Paired with the Frightful Sight Designer Series Halloween Designer Series Paper, it will make sophisticated Halloween cards in non-traditional colors.  But for now, I'm going to work on a card to go with these toppers.  Check back soon!

Hope you have as much fun working with these new products as I did.  Be sure to sign up for my to have my web site updates automatically sent to your email address, so that you'll receive the link to download the Stampin' Up!
