Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop! Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products. This month we are all creating projects with a “Halloween Fun” theme and I’m featuring the Warm Hearted host exclusive stamp set and the Takeout Treats stamp set bundle for my projects.
I made a gift set with a card and a Takeout Treat Box. Love those little takeout boxes!!
The card was pretty simple, I started by adhering a panel from the Toil & Trouble DSP to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL. I wrapped a strand of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the panel and tied one of the Spider Trinkets to it. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hearted photopolymer host exclusive stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento and Highland Heather inks on a panel of Gorgeous Grape card stock. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the ghost image from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then colored the edges with a Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends and the Color Lifter markers. I cut the image out with the coordinating Cauldron Framelits Dies and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot. I colored one of the Glitter Enamel Dots with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker and then adhered it to the sentiment to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and ghost images from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and in Tuxedo Black Memento inks on a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.
Then I went to work on the Takeout Treat box. I cut a panel of Basic Black card stock twice with the Takeout Thinlits Dies and then cut the Toil & Trouble DSP panel with a die from that set. I adhered the DSP die cut to the treat box die cut on two sides and then assembled the treat box as instructed on the die packaging, using Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the box together.
I wrapped a strand of the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the box and tied a bow then stamped the sentiment from the Takeout Treats stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I cut it out with the banner die from the Takeout Thinlits Dies, snipped the left end off and punched a hole with the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch. I pulled a strand of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine through the tag and tied it with a small knot to the ribbon. I stamped, colored and cut out another ghost from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set on Whisper White card stock and then adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish the tag.

Stampin’ Up! items used to create these projects:
Very cute, can you tell me how big the box is completed? I have heard it is very small, and am wondering what size it is.
It is a smaller treat box, it measures about 2″ wide x 2″ tall x 1-1/2″ deep and it tapers down to about 1-3/4″ wide at the bottom. It’s really cute! 🙂
Oh, Amy, this is an adorable set. Someone will be very pleased to receive this.
And, congratulations of being named a winner at Global Design Project.
Thanks so much Julie! 🙂
What a cute little set! May have to add the take-out treat set to my stash! I LOVE this little ghost! 🙂
Thanks Mary! 🙂
Cute, clean and easy and so sweet!
Thanks Jane! These would be really easy to do for the kids or grandkids. 🙂
