A Happy Halloween Witch’s Shoes Card & Video

witch shoe happy halloween card

Don’t you love the skinny, little legs on this witch?!  These little shoes were easy to make using the Top Note Die and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I created a video to show you how.

Watch the Video ‘How to Create Witch Shoes’ Here

The tag was created with the Stampin’ Rewards Mixed Medley Stamp Set.  ‘For you’ was stamped in Rich Razzleberry and the spider web stamped in Black StazOn Ink.  I punched these out quickly with Circle punches.  And the tag were layered on a circle Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Halloween Treat Petite Purses!

halloween purse treat boxes Remember the angry bird purse? – well, what about Halloween! These Halloween purses were inspired by projects created by Missi Roeber and featured in the September exclusive Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator magazine.

Each little purse has it’s own little personality and each started with the Big Shot and the Petite Purse Bigz Die.

frankenstein purse treat box

Let’s start with Frankie!  I started by die cutting the Petite Purse Die in Lucky Limeade.  Then I used a white gel pen to trace the lid on the back side of black cardstock.  Then I hand trim his hair with Paper Snips  to fit over the lid.

The eyes were punched with circle punches and highlighted with white gel pen.  I punched the nose from the corner of a square punch.  Black Glimmer Brads were added for bolts and the mouth and stitching were hand drawn with a black Stampin’ Write Marker.  The edges of the box and the nose were sponged with black ink.

Jacko the Jack-O-Lantern is Tangerine Tango embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder.   When you use the embossing folder on the purse, you’ll need to run it through twice, once for the front and once for the back, lining up the stripes with the bottom fold line of the purse.  After embossing, I sponged it with Tangerine Tango ink to bring out the stripes.  The mouth was created with the Extra-Large Oval Punch, punching out the ‘teeth’ with paper snips.  The eyes and nose were punched with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and trimmed to size.

halloween bat purse treat box

Batko the Halloween bat was created with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the Extra Large Oval Punch and the ¾” & ½” circle punches or his eyes.  To create his wings, I first punched two ovals  and then punched small circles from the bottom edges.   The wings are then adhered to the back of the purse.

Stampin’ Up! Field Flower Love

field flower love card angle “Navy Pacific Sand” – the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge!  I used a few interesting techniques on this Field Flowers love card including brayering the embossing folder and creating faux washi tape.

I started by stamping the stems in Sahara Sand, then in Night of Navy which creates a bit of shadow.  The flower outlines were then stamped in Night of Navy with Sahara Sand shading.  I then cut this with the largest framelit from the Apothecary Accents framelits set.

I used Pacific Point to sponge the interior of the flower and the edges of the panel, then a lighter sponge throughout.  Then I used Dazzling Details to add some heavy glitter to the center of the flowers.

field flower love card detail

Before embossing the Sahara Sand card front, I brayered Sahara Sand on the embossing folder so when I ran it through the Big Shot it creates a contrasting shadow.  The Apothecary flower panel was attached to the card front.

The faux washi tape was created with scotch tape and International Bazaar Designer Series Paper.  This is a technique I learned at the Stampin’ Up! Chattanooga Regional event.  I taped a section of pattern paper then ‘washed off’ the back of the pattern paper until it appears clear.

Tricky Treats Halloween 2-4-6-8 box

2-4-6-8 Halloween Treat Box

Tricky Treats Halloween 2-4-6-8 box

This 2-4-6-8 Halloween treat box is so super easy to make and I recorded a video to show you how to make the box and the tag.

If you are reading in email you can view the video tutorial here or here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqzBaSikDNg

This simple box is made with a half a sheet of paper measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  This box was embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.  To emboss the box you’ll need to emboss it twice, running it through the Big Shot once on each side before assembling the box.

Tricky Treats 2-4-6-8 Halloween box top

There are several options for closing up the top; you can use ribbon or a topper.  In this sample the top was folded in and secured with a Glimmer Brad, then the tag was hung from the brad.

Punches make quick work for tag creation!

Tricky Treats 2-4-6-8 Halloween box tag

This cute spider would look adorable with googlie eyes!  And the adhesive backed googlie eyes available in the Holiday Catalog would make that quick to do, but in this case I colored his eyes with a So Saffron marker to add just a tinge of color.
