Nothing But Words

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is NOTHING BUT WORDS.

ccmfall3

Since Halloween is Monday I used the words from SPOOKY FUN to make a one layer card that’s all about words.

spooky-fun-becreativewithnicole-com

Isn’t this fun!  I used three colors of ink and layered the three phrases all over the card with a few spooky spiders in between.  I’m normally not a one layer card kinda girl, but I love this idea!

spooky-fun-close-up

The phrases were stacked and scattered, some of the time I stamped off once to give a little variation.  But the best part for me is the fun little spiders throughout.  I put one spider web in the corner then had the rest of the spiders hang from the phrases.

I have a full list of supplies below so you can give this a try and make your own SPOOKY FUN card.

Halloween Cuties

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is HALLOWEEN CUTIES.

ccmfall3

Of course the first thing that came to mind was COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN.  What could be cuter than these cute little guys?!

I love making cute little 3D items to give away as gifts and these fun little bookmarks really fit the bill!

cooki-cutter-halloween-becreativewithnicole-com

I am going to get each of my kids a new book and add this bookmark to keep track of their place.  It’s a great way to give a treat that doesn’t involve candy!

skeleton-bookmark

I kept the bookmarks pretty simple.  The skeleton has a little bit of shading added with a gray marker.  Otherwise, he’s simply stamped and added to a large paper clip with a dimensional.  Several years ago i made a bulk purchase of large paperclips with a spot on the front to attach something.  I still have  quite a few left, so I thought it was time to pull them out again!

mummy-bookmark

As with the skeleton, I kept this one simple as well with a little shading.

vampire-cookie-cutter

The little vampire was the most work, I colored his face and clothes.  But isn’t he just the cutest!  The coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch made all of this a snap so no fussy cutting was involved!  You could easily make enough for a whole classroom or for party favors.

Halloween Treats

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is TRICK OR TREAT SMELL MY FEET so we have lots of ideas for Halloween treat giving.

ccmfall3

I went with the CURVY KEEPSAKE BOX THINLIT paired with HALLOWEEN NIGHTS SPECIALTY DSP and SPOOKY FUN.

spooky-fun-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

To create the treat, you only need to die cut part of the CURVY KEEPSAKE THINLIT.  I did a diagram to show you where I placed my paper.

curvy-keepsake-directions-becreativewithnicole-com

After you cut the two pieces, simply add fast fuse to the small bottom flap and adhere together.

spooky-fun-treat

I kept the stamping simple so this could be easily duplicated for a party favor and trick or treating.  The sentiment was stamped on a die cut from the MINI TREAT BAG THINLIT and a couple of ghosts were added as well as a spider and his web.

mini-treat-bag-becreativewithnicole-com

A peppermint patty fits nicely inside, I added a little SNAIL to hold it in then tied the top shut with HALLOWEEN NIGHT BAKER’S TWINE.

Halloween Treat Ideas

I’ve compiled a bunch of great ideas for Halloween treats so you can prep for upcoming parties.  You can never start too soon!

Spooky Fun by becreativewithnicole.com

This first one is a card and treat together.  I used the BAKER’S BOX and HALLOWEEN NIGHTS DSP to create a fun BOX to put treats in.  This comes together so quickly since the DSP does a lot of the work for you!

sppoky-fun-treat-bag-becreativewithnicole-com

For this treat, create a MINI TREAT BAG with DSP and stuff it with goodies.  In this type of bag I like to put a little pad of paper along with pencils and stickers for kids to have something other than candy.  So many options with the awesome HALLOWEEN NIGHTS DSP.

mini-treat-bags-becreativewithnincole-com

The MINI TREAT BAG thinlit can also be used to make half sized treat bags.  These are perfect for pixie stix, pencil or Twizler.  I decorated this set with COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN and it came together so quickly!  Again, the DSP does a lot of the design work for you.

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

If you don’t have die cuts to make the previous treats, why not make something simple and do a matchbox style treat.

jar-of-haunts-treat

This is super easy to make and do multiples of.  What a fun way to give a treat at school or to hand out to everyone you know around town.  Check HERE for the dimensions if you’d like to make your own.

Would you like to have holiday gift and card ideas designed for you and ready to create??  The OCTOBER MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary does just that!  We have 5 FULL TUTORIALS for you, all you do is sit down and craft!  The session opened today so you can see all these fabulous ideas NOW!!!  Just go to CREATE WITH CONNIE AND MARY and join in the fun!!!

Matchbox Treat

One of the things I love about Halloween is making lots of fun treats to give away.  Today’s idea is matchbox style treat featuring JAR OF HAUNTS.

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

These little treats are not only cute, but easy to make.  The Basic Black card stock measured 7 1/4″ x 3″ and was scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 3/4″.  For embellishment, I used the Jack-o-Lantern from JAR OF HAUNTS and HALLOWEEN NIGHT SPECIALTY DSP.

jar-of-haunts-treat

Inside is a candy with a fun sentiment.  A great way to give a little treat or to even advertise your business.  Slip a business card in with the treat and hand these out everywhere you go!

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

When I get a little time this week I think I’ll expand on this idea and do a bunch for everyone at work.  Cookie Cutter Halloween and Spooky Fun would be a couple of other great stamps to use with this idea.

Don’t forget about more great ideas that will be going live Tuesday is the OCTOBER MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary.  We have FULL tutorials for you, all the work is done…you just sit down and craft!  For more information, go to Create with Connie and Mary.  I hope you’ll join us!

Halloween Boo

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is HALLOWEEN BOO….spooky ideas.

ccmfall3

I immediately went to JAR OF HAUNTS for my card, it’s got some amazing images for a spooky card or treat.

jar-of-haunts-becreativewithnicole-com

Turned out pretty spooky, don’t ya think!  It was a combination of several elements that brought it all together.  First, the BRICK WALL EF was absolutely the perfect background.  I used Basic Gray and added shading with Archival Black ink.  I also added more dimension and spookiness with the spider web from SPOOKY FUN and the tiny spider included with JAR OF HAUNTS.

jar-of-haunts

An ooey, gooey jar of spiders and a haunting jack-o-lantern added to the creepiness of the card.  I personally hate spiders so covering everything in spiders is spooky and creepy to me!  I borrowed the solid color stamp from the original JAR OF LOVE stamp set to give the color in the jar then added slime and colored it with a blender pen and ink pad.

jar-of-haunts-becreativewithnicole-com

Final couple of details that made this card so fun for me were the greeting and candy corns.  I thought I’d better have some kind of treat on the card with “spooky treats” written on it.  I just colored and cut out a couple of candy corns and used mini glue dots to tuck them in the corner.  The sentiment came from the awesome and must have set LABELER ALPHABET.  I stamped the letters in black on Whisper White all in a row then cut out each word.

I hope you enjoyed this spooky idea, I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Design Team did!  Below is a supply list so you can re-create this fun Halloween card for yourself!

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:   Jar of Haunts, Spooky Fun, Labeler Alphabet

INKS:  Archival Black, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive

MARKERS:  Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie

PAPER:  Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray, Pear Pizzaz

ACCESSORIES:  Brick Wall EF,  Paper Snips, Trimmer, Stampin’ Sponge, Bone Folder, dimensionals, SNAIL, Mini Glue Dots

Cookie Cutter Halloween

I got a chance to sit down and do a little playing with the fun COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN stamp set.  Love how versatile they made the COOKIE CUTTER BUILDER PUNCH by creating TWO stamp sets that coordinate!

cookie-cutter-halloween-becreativewithnicole-com

When I started making this card I had a different idea in mind and it morphed into what you see, which I love even better than my original thought.  Don’t you just love when creativity just takes over and leads you into a new direction!

cookie-cutter-skeleton

It all started out with a splash of Elegant Eggplant ink using a stamp from GORGEOUS GRUNGE.  I added in a brick wall using the HALLOWEEN NIGHT SPECIALTY DSP and the rest just fell into place.  A few elements were taken from SPOOKY FUN.  I love all the little stamps in that set that work for so many things.  I used the pumpkins, spider web and spider plus the greeting.  Really, I used more from SPOOKY FUN than I did COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN.  That set just provided the super cute skeleton and his Elegant Eggplant bow tie.cookie-cutter-halloween-becreativewithnicole-comTomorrow I have another fun idea with SPOOKY FUN to share for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the October Mini Session, it goes live on the 11th!
