October Step It Up Blog Hop - Spooky Little Treats

Welcome to the October 2016 Edition of the We Create Bloggers Step It Up Blog Hop! The theme is to inspire stampers with a basic design, and at least one alternate "stepped up" version of that same design. This month I created a basic design with the Spooky Fun stamp set to hold Halloween treats, trying to keep it simple. Check out my basic design below, along with a side view. There are 2 snack size Heath bars in the wrap on the left, and 2 Hershey Nuggets in the little wrap on the right.

Stampin' Supplies: Spooky Fun stamp set, Pumpkin Pie Card Stock, Basic Gray Card Stock, Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad (stamped off once for the lighter images), Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine, 1/8" Circle/Hole Punch, Decorative Label Punch.

My stepped up version is a little treat box that can hold either 1 snack size Hershey or Heath bar, OR 3 Hershey Nuggets. This design features Designer Series Paper, because there is a Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper Sale going on during the month of October for select packages in My Online Store! Designer Series Paper adds a quick burst of color without much work on your takes pretty much any project from Cute, to Super Cute, in a flash ;-)

You might notice that on my stepped up project I used Peekaboo Peach card stock instead of Pumpkin Pie. I thought the Peekaboo Peach coordinated well with the piece of Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper that I used around the box, and gave it a brighter look. The little tag on the candy bar is just the Decorative Label Punch, punched out of an already punched piece to make it shorter. I'll do a video to show this project some time after my October 1st World Card Making Day Event :-D

Stampin' Supplies: Spooky Fun stamp set, Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper, Peekaboo Peach Card Stock, Basic Gray Card Stock, Pumpkin Pie ink pad (for the moon), Basic Gray Archival Pad (for the witch), Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad (stamped off once for the lighter images), Decorative Label Punch, Basic Rhinestones (colored with black Sharpie), 3/4" Circle Punch (for the thumb cutout on the box lid).

By the way, the Spooky Fun stamp set also comes in a BUNDLE, with some amazingly darling Halloween Scenes Edgelits, with dies to cut out the witch, gravestones, pumpkins, and the big bat...and Edgelits, to cut out a fence, and a gnarly, spooky tree!
