DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #253-Tootsie Pop Pumpkin Holders

#253

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. We are having a Home Sweet Home challenge. I drew inspiration from the pumpkins on the pillows. I immediately turned to the Christmas catalog drooling over the Pick A Pumpkin bundle. Since I do not own that set (yet--will be ordered this weekend!!!) Isn't it great that Stampin' Up! offers these in a bundle to save you 10%?

I decided to CASE a project I saw on Pinterest. I know they are simple but I am keeping with the theme of Halloween treat holders on my blog. It is this cute little tootsie pop sucker holder. All you need to do is cut out 6 of the "pumpkins" from the oval and circle layering framelits, fold in half and glue. When you come to your last pair to adhere, slip in your tootsie pop. I then measured the "stick" or "stem" and cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock and glued this around the stem. I cut two punched leaves from the new leaf punch and adhered onto the stem. You could run these through an embossing folder or stamp some great images but I didn't really feel the necessity because basically a child is just going to rip this open. LOL

Haunted House Treat Holder with the Gift Bag Punch Board

Hi Stampers,

I know everyone is getting into the Halloween mood so this house is perfect for you. I don't know about you but I prefer "cutesy" to scary. Maybe because we live in a rural area and unless my husband is home with me at night I hear every noise and bump in the night. I was looking for a cute Halloween treat bag on Pinterest and found many templates but then I had a real "DUH" moment----use your Gift Bag Punch Board silly!!!! The "upstairs" I downsized from coloring pages to fit my bag. I made the medium sized bag and cut my cardstock 6 x 11. I have provided the template and punches on a pdf for you. The oval windows are made using Stampin' Up's retired oval punch. The smaller oval windows are the "legs" from the Cookie Cutter punch. The door is from Stampin' Up! retired Label punch. The small circle window is the 3/4" circle punch. Also, after you cut out the templates for the "upstairs" fold a piece of cardstock in half and place the top of the "upstairs" template on the fold line to get a front and back. Secure the upstairs to the bag with tear and tape. The ghosts are made with the wing of the retired bird punch. I also stamped Basic Gray with the Hardwood Stamp on the bag to look like wood siding. I sponged all the way around with Memento Black Ink. Don't forget to add your candy before securing the bag!!! You don't want to disappoint the kiddos!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #252-Hello Fall

#252

Hi Stampers,

We are having a color challenge this week. Actually, these are not colors I would reach for and put together but I made it work. All three colors are in the Painted Autumn DSP making it easier. I chose a sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set and masked off part of the saying, only using Hello Fall. I also used the beautiful Pool Party satin ribbon and the leaf punch.

I am LOVIN' the mini stampin' dimensionals!!! I used them to "pop" up the leaf punched framelit. They were the perfect size for this card. I also used them behind my sentiment.

Remember, if you would like to recreate this card for yourself, you can order all the supplies in my online store.

Thanks for hopping by!!!

 


Candy Corn Treat Holder

Hi Stampers,

Isn't this just the cutest little candy corn treat holder? I just love his face!!!

I thought I would make these for my grandchildren. They all love the candy corn mixed with peanuts. It tastes just like you are eating a Payday candy bar. Even the older two-Connor and Logan, like it. Speaking of which, we met them to take pictures for Homecoming. When did they become a freshman and junior and 6'3" and 6'4" respectively?!!!!

I even typed up a pdf for you which there are 2 parts.
