Wicked Halloween Crafting Fun

Hi all... sorry it's been a few days since I posted, very busy getting ready for the Big Event Sept 21st Demonstrator Connections!

Last night we had our first Adult Ed this school year and we created several Halloween items. The first is a card, it's on the left and it's both a card and a bit of decor.  I'll post a tutorial with close up photos tomorrow.

We decorated the lanterns, with the cat punch and the bat punch (from Every Season) with a little glimmer paper as well.

You add a tea light and it's a fun decoration for your desk. 

These lanterns can be found at PaperLantern.com, search for 4.75" lantern. They were $2 several years ago and I had some left over from a long ago project (does that happen to you?!) now they are $3.16 each which is still a good deal.

We made some treat packaging and created these coffins. The coffins are pre-cut, prescored and you just glue them together and fill with treats.  Everyone did something a little different including some fun shimmer paint options with the shimmer paint and spritzer.

Tomorrow I'll post the pop up card that everyone said looked hard and was super easy!

Happy crafting, MaryKate

Cup of Cheer Happy Birthday card

I'm making fall birthday and thank you cards.

I create a background of leaves using the Every Season stamp set on whisper white cut 4 x 5 1/4.

I stamped the mugs - the stamp is reversible!  Cut them out with the matching dies.  Then layered them on a stitched rectangle 4 3/8 x 3.  The Melon Mambo layer is just 1/8 larger so 4 1/2 x 3 1/8.  Just a peek of the pink to match the thin lines of the stamp.  

The mugs are on dimensions to make them pop.  The happy birthday is from the very popular and versatile Cake Builder set.

This would be a great thank you.. and we will make this at class tomorrow Sept 8, and I think I'll make it a thank you and have a gift card insert. I'll take a picture and post it here!  

Stamp sets used include the Cup of Christmas (yes I made it fall.. stay tuned it will be Christmassy later!) and the Every Season for the leaves.  You can buy these in my online Stampin Up store, just click the shopping cart. Don't forget the host code so you can be part of the free product share!

Merry Moose Class Sept 23 Warsaw

So happy our classes at Adult Ed at Warsaw are back!

Sept 16 is our first class - Halloween themed - and Sept 23 is the Moose!! I love this Moose!! 

At the Moose class we will make a card, a tag, do some stenciling and make a bag of Moose candy. It could be Moose Munch or Moose Poop (both options available).

Monday evening classes are 5-630 and include 3 projects,  a little simpler projects, perfect to come and try out stamping and it's just $5.  Come and hang out with a great group of fun crafters.  

This card is so great, I love the sprinkle of snow on the card (can you see it over the trees?)

And the moose's scarf... he looks ready for Christmas. You will love all the options for the plaid paper (with the little gold stripe) that matches the gold foil background.

RSVP is essential... you must email me MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com to secure your space and ensure I have all supplies cut and ready for you.

Yes this class includes the Moose candy that you put in the bag!

Coffin treat boxes for Halloween

These coffin boxes are in the new Holiday Catalog. 

So cute and fun to put together.  They hold 2 mini candy bars or many other treat sizes.

There are so many ways to decorate these boxes.  I used designer paper (it's called Monster Bash) and traced the lid and cut it out and added a few bats.

This one uses the amazing Wicked die with glimmer paper and the fun spiders.  

We will make these treat boxes Sept 8 at class.  

If you are local email me MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com to secure a place for class Sept 8 130-330pm in Hartland ME at my lake house.

And if you are not local, and place an order (any size) in my online store, I'll send you a free coffin box! Don't forget the host code :) You can find it top right of this screen with the shopping cart. 

Didn't get a holiday catalog with the Wicked and the Coffin treat boxes?? just email me and I'll get one in the mail to you.

Happy Halloween crafting, MaryKate

Halloween Tombstone card with Monster Bash

When I send Halloween cards, I like them to be decor (like the Slime card)!

This one looks like a tombstone and features the new Monster Bash paper. It folds flat to mail and needs only a regular stamp.  There's a place on the back to write a note. 

Can you see the embossing of the spiders?  and the Have a Happy Halloween in silver?

We'll make this fun fold at class on Sun Sept 8 130-330 at my lake house.  I have a few spots left, and if you want one, please RSVP MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com

I'm making an instruction sheet for this fun fold card, and as soon as I do, I'll post it here (likely in the next few days).

Happy crafting MaryKate
