PRS DT Oct last no wmI picked 4 of the 9 circle images in the set and stamped each one in black on a kraft die cut square.  Then I glued them onto a white card.  It needed something, so I stamped 4 more and attached them on top with fun foam.  Just right!PRS DT Oct last close upThe sentiment from the same set was heat embossed & embellished with tiny black gems.  Better get it mailed and I’ll see you next time.  Happy Halloween!

Project Thursday ~ DIY Mini Halloween Candy Bags

Hello everyone… Helen is here for a Project Thursday. Today, I have some easy-to-make DIY Mini Halloween Candy Bags to share with you all.

I am using the Beware Stamp Set on this project. It is a fun Halloween themed stamp set for sure!

There is a little girl image in this stamp set and I thought it will be a cute one to use as to embellish these bags.

I stamped the circle image on an orange cardstock with VersaFine Clair Nocturne – Black Ink Pad and then I used my 1″ circle punch to cut out the circles.

I made the paper medallions using halloween scrapbook papers that I cut into 1 1/4″ x 12″ paper strips. Then I scored each of them at every 1/4″, folded, and glued each circle on top of the medallion using strong adhesive glue.

I stamped the sentiment on a grey cardstock using the same ink pad, trimmed them, and then added on the medallions with strong adhesive glue.

To make the mini bags, it is easy. I used 8 1/5″ x 11″ Black Cardstock that I cut it out into 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, so you’ll get 2 bags from this size of cardstock.

I put the cardstock on score board with 5 1/2″ at the top, then I scored it at 1 1/2″ and 4″. And then I twisted it and scored at 1/4″ for the bottom flap.

Using my micro-tip scissors, I cut off the bottom of the 2 sides and leave the middle one as the bottom flap.

After that I folded the two side flaps and glued them together with strong adhesive glue. And then I closed the bottom flap and glued it with the same glue.

I added each medallions on top of the mini bag using the strong adhesive glue. If you do not have any strong adhesive glue, glue gun works well for this project, too.

This mini bag holds a pack of mini M & M’s, Marties Candy, and Dots Candy. Any small individual wrapped candies will fit in them, I would say 3 candies in each bag.

I hope this project can give you some more ideas for your Halloween party.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Create It Wednesday~Happy Halloween

Fall has arrived in our neck of the woods and that means it’s time to get some Halloween cards made.  I chose three of the images & a sentiment from the super fun Beware stamp set.PRS DT Oct Halloween no wm Each circle was stamped in black ink on white cardstock.  I punched three circles from a scrap of plaid paper and then lined up the images attaching them to a white panel.  The plaid piece was attached with foam and the whole piece was matted with a black cardstock panel.  I white embossed the sentiment on a thin black strip and finished off with a few black Pico Embellisher dots.  Hope you’ll check out all the great products in the PRS Store and show us your Fall cards.

Tuesday Ideas: Spook Bus

Hi everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas!  This week, I thought I’d use the School Days set to create a mini Halloween card.  It’s always fun to stick a little note in with Halloween treats and this little 2.5 x 3.5 card will be perfect for that!

I used a black marker to ink all but the ‘School’ sign on the bus.  I wanted to replace the sign with a Halloween themed one!  I grounded the bus & framed the sentiment using the border stamp in the School Days set.  I used the ‘Beware’ sentiment from the Beware stamp set to transition the school bus into a spo0ky bus.  The little spider is from a portion of one of the circle images in the same set.

Have you started on your Halloween cards & gifts yet?  Next week, October arrives and then it won’t be long before little ghosts & goblins are knocking on doors asking for sweet treats!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Tuesday Ideas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas!  I hope your October is going well for you and you’re feeling like you’re almost ready for Halloween!  I’ve been working on a few clean & simple Halloween cards and thought I’d share a couple of them today!  Both were created using the new Beware stamp set.

For this card, I used a die cut to create a simple country scene and, after stamping the sentiment, popped it up on top of a black panel of cardstock.  The moon was stamped using the Spooky circle image in the stamp set and a 1-inch circle punch was used to cut it out.  Using a clear Wink of Stella brush marker, a thin layer of sparkle was applied to the moon.  Once dry, the moon was popped up using a foam dot.  The entire main panel was also popped up using foam dots.

For my second card, I created a simple, one layer design.  Using the dotted border image in the stamp set, I stamped the left three lines of dots.  Then, the dated circle was stamped in black and a little orange ink was sponged onto the words.  Finally, the three lines of dots on the right were stamped.

A classic black and white color scheme provides endless possibilities when designing a card, especially if you use a small pop of color (as seen in the second card)!  When I think of Halloween, I automatically think of black, orange, green and purple!  What colors do you think of when making Halloween projects?

The circles in the Beware set can be used for so many different things!  I used one for the moon in the first card & Halloween themed lollipops in this post!  What other creative uses can you think of for these cute images?

The border stamps in this particular set offer lots of options.  You can create your own borders, frames or use them as random lines in your designs!

Until next time, have fun finishing up your Halloween projects!

{Create It Wednesday} Spooky Treats!

Hello PRS fans!!  Rosemary here to share a fun little treat wrap that I made using the newly release PRS set “Beware“.     These little wrap are so easy to create using multiple stamps from the set.  To make the wrap you will need a sheet of Avery (or other similar brand) #5260 mailing labels, some inks of choice and your stamps.  This label size is perfect for wrapping around a Hershey’s Nugget candy.

I started by stamping the “trick or treat” line image along each long side of the label using black ink. ( Note:  when making the wraps do one column of labels at a time and make sure to not stamp on to the labels in the adjoining column.)  I then stamped one of the little washi tape images on either end of the label using orange, green and purple inks.  The center was left unstamped because that will be covered up.  Below is a photo of a completed label.   Stamping the labels can get a bit messy so don’t be surprised to find ink all over your fingers and hands!   The icons were stamped using the orange, green and purple inks, punched out, Glossy Accents applied and allowed to dry.   I wrapped  each candy with a label and then added the little icon.  And there you have it.  A fun little treat for Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by…

Tuesday Ideas: Watercolor Halloween

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa returning to share a clean and simple Halloween card design using the fantastic new Beware stamp set!  Tomorrow is the first day of October and if you’re anything like me, pumpkins and Halloween decor are on your mind!

I started out by cutting a panel of watercolor paper to fit within the card base.  I then painted varying sizes of circular shapes on the panel using an orange watercolor.  While waiting for the paint to dry, I stamped the sentiment in black.  Once the paint was dry, three pumpkins were stamped on top of some of the larger watercolor circles using orange ink and three gold sequins were adhered as embellishments.  I then mounted the finished main panel to a panel of orange cardstock and popped up the entire center panel with foam dots for dimension.

With watercolors being popular, you could make lots of different versions of this card, varying the shapes & colors in the background to go along with any of the cute circles in this stamp set you choose!  This card is an easy one to mass produce for all those people on your Halloween list!  Pop it into an orange or black envelope and you’ve got yourself a festive paper greeting to give!

I hope this inspires you to create some of your own Halloween cards for the month ahead!  The new Beware set has lots of different images to choose from and endless possibilities!

Until next time, enjoy your autumn days!
