Stampin' Addicts Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to stop #7 on this hop.  If you have been following the Hop you just came from Rhonda's Blog.  Isn't she great!  She is a great stamper and I am so blessed to call her my friend too.  If you started here, you can stay here and follow the Hop until it loops its way back around.  If you want to start at the beginning please go to Heidi's Blog.

If you have never seen a Blog Hop before you are in for a treat.  11 Demonstrators from Stampin' Addicts have brought you projects featuring the Fall Products from the 2013 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I have 4 projects featuring the Halloween Bash Stamp Set, so lets get started.

What is the first thing we do when having a BASH?  We send out invitations.  I colored the image with my Stampin' Write Markers in Basic Gray, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie.  The torn edges were colored with the NEW Smokey Slate Marker.  It is hard to see in the photo, but the black background area has a fuzzy texture to it.  Come back next week for tips on how to do that.  The little creepy crawly fellow is from my Halloween decorations.  A cheap embellishment this time of year.  And how about that envelope?  The NEW Envelope Liners Framelit Dies can make any envelope just jump out at you.

We want everyone to find their place at the party.  Here is a fun decor project.  I made the rosette using the Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper.  I lined up the paper in my Paper Cutter, so they spiders on the print were near the outer edge.  I then used my scoring tool to score the fold lines.  There is no perfect measurement to score this at.  I moved the DSP around so the groove of the tool was in the center of the spider or his web area.  I stamped the label in versamark ink, then used heat and stick powder to adhere the orange glitter.  The name is hand written with the NEW Chalk Marker.

Once everyone has found their seat you want to have a little treat for them.  The treat topper features the Label Framelits turned both directions.  Again, I colored the stamp with my Stampin' Write Markers.  Add a little something with a glitter covered background.  (More details on that next week).  For those looking for the worms, I found them in the Hawaiian treat section of my store.  They are Li Hing covered Sour Worms.  "Eat If You DARE!"

To round out our table setting, we have a simple little package for holding the silverware.  A little distress marks from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  Be sure to check back next week for more photos and details on how to make these projects yourself.  But now, it is on to the next stop at Mary's Blog where she is going to show you some fabulous uses for the Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape.

Such clever party ideas! I like the plastic spider idea on the invite, tho I do not like spiders. I had to Google Li Hing, I like gummy worms but had never heard of this. Great ideas for this set.

Great party ideas and clever use of all the products, too! Love the glittery layers - very fun! The treat packets would be a favorite in my house, especially with the sour worms. I don't dare eat them, but my son loves them, lol!

Great ideas for a Halloween party. The rosette is beautiful. I can't wait to try coloring the edges of torn paper with a marker.

Love them, Kathleen!!! The gummy worm treat is especially adorable!

Love all the glittery goodness! I think the sour gummy worms wouldn't stand a chance at our house. Especially if they are super sour. The boys (my hubby included) would make it into some kind of contest!

I want to come to your Halloween party! All of these projects are so fun.

Debbi said...

What fun projects Kathleen! Well, except for the spiders - I don't like spiders. But the gummy worm packaging is totally adorable! What a fun party.
