Bag A Lope Halloween Bags

I thought these were cute to make for the grandchildren to hold their Halloween treats. They are called Bag A Lope or Box in a Bag. They are called many things but so easy to make!! I also got to use up some retired Halloween DSP and some retired In Color clothespins to attach their glow in the dark hand pens to the outside.

I just filled them with their favorite XL candy bar, pack of gum, tootsie rolls and laffy taffy. They get so much candy trick or treating!!!

Here are our youngest two grandchildren, Isabella (Bella) and Barrett (Bear). They wanted to get their picture taken on Grandpa's vintage truck.

Mr. Funny Bones

Hi Stampers,

Like I said before, I don't own much Halloween stamp stuff but when I saw Mr. Funny Bones I knew I had to order it. I work as a Radiology Assistant at our hospital and this stamp set was perfect for my department. I know I can get a lot of miles out of it even after Halloween.

I found these pens at our local Meijer store. They come 6 in a pack for $3. The hands glow in the dark. I think you can also buy them from Amazon and on ebay.  I made one for each of the grandchildren and the rest I am taking to work for my co-workers. I also got to use up some of my hoarded beloved Tangelo Twist cardstock.  I love being able to use up retired cardstock on crafts. These package up nicely in our 2 x 8 bags. I then stampled them closed with our handheld stapler.

The cardstock for the inside are cut 1-3/4" x 6". The outside cardstock are cut 3-1/8" x 3-1/4" and scored at 1-5/8". The white is cut 1-1/2" x 3".

Stamp Set: Mr. Funny Bones

Ink: Smoky Slate, Basic Black

Paper: Tangelo Twist (retired), Whisper White, pumpkin pie glitter paper

Accessories: Paper Trimmer, Cookie Cutter punch (hearts), green bottle glue, SNAIL, 2 x 8 bags, stapler

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #204-All Wrapped Up

Hi Stampers,

Sorry I missed the last couple of DOStamper Stars Challenges. Between working a lot of hours at my job at the hospital (LOVE MY JOB!!!) and life I haven't had much energy left to craft. I know, I know, how can that happen? LOL I have been trying to make up for it this week. 

#204

We have a Color My World challenge. Love these halloween colors. I used my Cookie Cutter Halloween set once again. The characters are SO cute!!! I also found a remnant for $2 for a yard of the white cotton which I tore and tied in a bow.

Cookie Cutter Halloween Dracula Style

Hi Stampers,

I made this cute little coffin style card with the dracula from the Cookie Cutter Halloween set. I got the coffin template from Debbie Henderson's blog. I don't have a lot of Halloween stuff. I like the cutesy Halloween, not the scary stuff. I used the Labeler alphabet stamp set for a little play on words.

One Big Meaning

I always think it so thoughtful to send a heartfelt thank you card to people who go above and beyond and who wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of such a bright card? I absolutely LOVE the fonts used in the set One Big Meaning. You also get 7 different thank you sayings in this set. I also used the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP on the bottom. I used the brayer first but it seemed to dark of a color so I ended up sponging on the color. This paper pack is great because you get the look of white embossing powder and you can make whatever color you want or need from it. Pretty cool, eh?

Double Z Fold Stylized Happy Birthday!!!

 I have been wanting to make the double Z fold card for awhile now. They are all over Pinterest. Some are SO HIGHLY DETAILED and just gorgeous!!! I am always in need of birthday cards (who isn't?) so I thought I would start there.

They are really quite easy to make. Cut cardstock 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". Fold in half and then fold one side back to the center fold. The strip is actually cut 1" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4" and 5"1/2 inches. EASY PEASY!!! I attached the balloons with a small strip of window sheet with a glue dot.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #201-Halloween Peek A Boo

#201

 

Welcome back!!! Our home sweet home challenge is Halloweenish (is that even a word?) Since I do not send out Halloween cards I have a very limited supply of Halloween stamp sets but I did buy the Halloween Cookie Cutter Set that is amazing!!!

I made a peek-a-boo card this week. These have been on my list to make for awhile now. I should have taken a pic of my craft room floor. I think I wasted 6 sheets of cardstock. I am a visual learner and so I you tubed this particular card. I don't know if my heart just wasn't it or not really paying attention. GEESSHHH!!! It really is not that hard but MAN!!!! I did finish it and am very happy with it. I think I now have all the measurements memorized from making so many "mistakes". UPDATE: THE CARD ITSELF IS NOT HARD. I SHOULD HAVE MADE MYSELF MORE CLEAR. I WAS TRYING TO MAKE THE OPENING MUCH BIGGER-THEREFORE, THE MEASUREMENTS WERE NOT WORKING. ONCE I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS IT WAS PERFECT. I  RECEIVED SOME EMAILS ASKING ABOUT THIS AND I DIDN'T WANT TO DISSUADE ANYONE FROM TRYING TO MAKE THIS!!

I couldn't find a sentiment I liked to go with the skeleton and mummy so what's a stamper to do? I made my own. I printed out a whole sheet. If you would like these to print here they are  Download Timetounwind.

I also wished that I had some muslin that I could have tied around the card in a knot. Oh well, next time!!

Recipe:

Stamp Set: Cookie Cutter Halloween, Monster Munchies (retired)

Ink: Basic Black

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Brights DSP

Accessories: Big Shot, Layering Ovals framelits, paper trimmer, tear and tape, dimensionals, SNAIL, Flourish thinlits, 1-1/2" circle punch, 1-3/4" circle punch
