Test Tube treat holders

Hi Everyone! Today I want to share these fun Halloween Treats. I was so happy to see Test Tubes in the Holiday Catalog.  They were so fun in last years September Paper Pumpkin, that I was hoping for something similar this year.  Paired up with the Spooky Cat bundle and you have a winner!














This is such a fun collection of products for Halloween.  The stamp set, paper punch and designer paper all coordinate to make adorable treats.

I just love that Cat punch.  This collection of product will get a lot of use at my house. I see scrapbook pages and treats for the kids!





I made a video showing how to put together the Test Tube holders.



Did you know that Last Years Halloween Paper Pumpkin kit is available? It is a set of 16 Test Tubes, as well as a stamp set, an ink spot and tags.



You can get the full kit for $17.00.  The full kit includes the stamp set, 16 test tubes and supplies to make 16 tags.








Or you can get the refill for $8.00, which has the 16 test tubes and supplies to make the tags, but no stamp set or ink spot.  Use a stamp you already own, or get one full kit and one refill to make 32 treats!!




If you are a paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can add these past kits to you shopping cart when you order.  If you are not a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, you will have to contact me to get one of the kits I have on hand.



Here are the scoring directions for the test tubes so you don't have to rewind the video several times to get them.  Start with a piece of cardstock 4 by 11 or 5 by 11 depending on if you want the one tube box or the two tube box.  Then score at 1 1/4 on the long sides the cardstock.  Then at 1/2, 1 3/4, 4 1/4, 5 1/2, and at 8 inches score from the side just to the 1 1/4 score line you made on the sides of the cardstock. You can see this on the video.
Here are some ideas on what to put inside the treat holders.
m&m's (please note that the larger specialty m&m such as the Candy Corn flavor or 'Cookies and Scream' do not fit, only the traditional m&m's) or try these fun candy sprinkles from the Halloween aisle or the Baking aisle.

You can also fit about 5 Brach's Candy Corn pieces.

Purple Painted Harvest

Hi everyone.  I made a second version of today's card using some non-traditional sunflower colors. 
It's the same card as the previous post, but I switched it up to Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant with Early Espresso centers. The leaves are Always Artichoke.
Which version do you like better? Yellow or Purple?

Painted Harvest Stamp Set

Hi Everyone! Today I would like to share a new card using the Painted Harvest stamp set.  This is such a pretty stamp set for fall and I just love the soft way that the stamp images is created.  This is a two-step stamp and the images layer beautifully to create the end result.  For this card I used Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango, with an Early Espresso center.  The leaves are Two step as well and I used Garden Green.
What do you think about that Burlap background? I love it! I purchased that stamp when it first came out and then somehow forgot all about it! So glad I remembered it for this card. It is stamped in Crumb Cake.



I made a quick video showing some tips and tricks for using this pretty stamp set.



And here is another card I made with this set last week.

Pick a Pumpkin!

Hi Everyone!  Today I want to share a fun new project with the Pick A Pumpkin bundle.  This is a super fun bundle. I love all the dies that come in the set.  Stampin' Up! has really out done themselves with the dies lately.  Normally the dies just cut out stamped images but lately there have been added elements and even texture only dies in the sets.  In the Patterened Pumpkin set for example not only do the dies cut out the stamps but there are fun vines and leaves, and little background dies and a cut out pumpkin. Fun for sure.
Aren't these dies so fun?!!

Aren't these samples from the catalog great?













And here is my sample.  I think this is a really great bundle.  Can't you just picture it on a scrapbook page? I can :)   Maybe I'll have one to share with you soon!!

Oh, and bonus, the dies also cut out the pumpkins in the Spooky Night designer series paper!!














Here is a video showing how to put this card together.
 


And here is my supply list...
