Nothing like a quote from Shakespeare to set the tone for this day!
Happy Halloween to you!

Stamp the pumpkins one more time and cut out as many pumpkins as you have kids and add one for each of them on the border of the picture. Whether you have one child or many more, this would be fun.
Wouldn’t that be a fun card to send to grandparents or a special aunt who lives far away?
I think this would be a great accent for scrap booking too. Then I would use the stamp with its “halloween happiness” and add “is my little pumpkins”.
Notice how the Chevron Folder and the Perfect Polka Dots Folder are used to compliment the patterns in the pumpkins. I stamped the pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie and then colored the stems and leaves. Watch the video to see more.

A new idea comes out each week in my newsletter, so be sure you have opted in on the right hand side. You won’t want to miss these exclusive cards, gift, and wraps!
I took a step back today for a second H! I made this video with the Halloween Hello stamp set quite a while ago and then forgot about it!
(Tim suggested I skip the letter S and blame it on a “Senior moment”, but I can think of other letters I would prefer to skip!)
I love the technique of “ghosting” on this card. Do you see the white “ghost-like” look right behind each of the bats?
One of the many benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is the beautiful magazine we get filled with ideas. This technique was shared in the last issue. I used that and made the card my own.
Watch the video to see how its done and then create your own version of “ghosting”.
I hope you enjoyed this “extra H” project with Halloween Hello for stamping through the alphabet!
My “great idea” was to use the 3 videos as part of a Google Hangout. I tried that as an experiment and, on the 6th try, it actually worked. I wasn’t too please with it though, so I decided just to post the videos separately here today……but I will be doing more Google Hangouts in the future.
All of these projects feature the Halloween Bash stamp set. This first one uses pixie sticks wrapped in the Witch’s Brew Washi Tape along with the words “eat if you dare”. I think any kid would love this card!
Here is the same idea turned into place settings for your Halloween table. Perfect just for your family dinner or for a Halloween party.
Combining the Tag a Bag Gift Bags with the Witch’s Brew Designer Series paper and the Halloween Bash stamp set gives you a bunch of these Halloween bags.
The “Licorice Lice” comes from on the papers in Witch’s Brew along with lots of other titles including “Contaminated Caramel Apples” and “Munster Munchies”. Your kids would have fun with these!
and the last project is this “creepy” card with black glitter and Washi Tape! Easy and fun to do.
Thats a lot of fun, easy cards and projects to make for Halloween all from one stamp set, Halloween Bash! Get yours today and get inspired!
If you have had enough of Halloween craft ideas centered around candy and want something different, this is a cute Stampin' Up! Halloween project with no candy involved!
Aren't these adorable? The Googly Ghouls on top of these pencils can be used as cupcake toppers, or as the picture below shows, a bunch of them can be put in a cake! And, of course, the pencils can actually be used!
There is a stamping video tutorial below to show the entire process.
How to make this project:
1. Take a strip of 1 1/4" x 12" of paper from the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper. Line that up along the edge of the Designer Rosettes Bigz Die and put it through the Big Shot.
2. Fold along all the score lines and attach the two ends with sticky tape or glue dots to hold it securely.
3. Press in the straight sides of the rosette to get the finished shape. Use part of one of the Jumbo Sticky Rounds for securing it.
4. Stamp the Googly Ghouls images on Very Vanilla Card Stock and punch out with the 1" Circle Punch. Layer that on a 1 1/4" Tango Tangerine or Basic Black circle. Attach to the front of the rosette. Don't these characters look cute with just their faces showing? Of course, you will want to add those googly eyes as well!
5. On the back, attach a circle made with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch to give more support to the rosette. Attach it to the pencil with a piece of card stock punched out with the Word Window Punch. Just put a glue dot on each end of it and you will have a perfect pencil holder. This makes the back of the pencils look finished as well.
You can see all of this in detail on this video:
Now, how easy was that? This idea would also be great for birthday parties! Or baby shower favors! Or for an office co-worker. Surprise her with a cupcake and a pencil topper celebrating her birthday, a promotion, or just that its Friday! Its so much fun to surprise people with little gifts like this.
Halloween is coming soon, so be sure you have everything you need for your Halloween projects. Order now if you realize there are a few things missing for your plans! And consider making this cute Stampin' Up! Halloween project with no candy involved!
