A Few Halloween Tricks and Treats . . . a Little Late . . .

Hi!  Happy November!  Despite my best intentions, I didn't manage to get these Halloween projects posted before the big day!  But, better late than never, right?!!  And, this way, they'll be here in case you want to get a head start on next year or want inspiration for next year or after!  ;)

The first project is a haunted house I created using the Sweet Home Holiday Bundle, combined with the Spooky Fun Bundle:

The house and roof are stamped with images from the Ghoulish Grunge set:

 The little pathway is made with bits left when the windows were die cut from the kraft paper I used for the house:

There's a spooky surprise inside the house:

And, a metallic enamel shape makes a great spooky door knob:

The next projects were created by my super-talented friend Marlene, and are from our most recent swap!  The first of these is a pop-up card.  Here it is flat:

And, it pops up to reveal a lumiere:

Here's the other side:

Marlene used Jar of Haunts and Ghoulish Grunge on her awesomely spooky pop-up card.

The next project is a 3D Ghostly House Lumiere and Candy Holder, that Marlene made by enlarging the house created with the Sweet Home Holiday Bundle.  Marlene's project was inspired by a project by Jenny Hayward (you can see her extended house project here).  Look how cutely Marlene had the house and tealight packaged:

Here it is out of the packaging:

What a great project, right?!!!

And, that isn't all!!!  Here's another cute 3D treat holder I received from Marlene.  Here it is in its packaging:

And, out:

This project uses the Cookie Cutter Halloween and Ghoulish Grunge stamp sets, and some Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape (love the versatility of that! Not just for Christmas projects!!!)  Marlene drew inspiration from Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho for this project.

The next of Marlene's projects is a cute take on the September 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit (refills are still available here, but only while supplies last!)!  Marlene added a special card around the test tube:

Marlene used the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper to decorate her note card, along with  Jar of HauntsGhoulish Grunge, Spooky Fun, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, and Halloween Night Baker's Twine.  Love it!  How about you?!

Here's a Spooky Treat Halloween card Marlene created, along with its adorable matching envelope -- both featuring some designs from the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper:

The taffy apple on the card was inspired by Julie Pitta.  It is created with the drips from  Ghoulish Grunge, and made more spookily 3D with the addition of some fine tip glue over the top!

The inside of this card is super-clever, too!  Check it out:

And, here's a closer view, so you can see that there is a "snow-cone shaped" pop-out to the card:

So much fun!!!

And, here's an adorable tag Marlene created with the Cookie Cutter Halloween set and coordinating punch, plus some of the Halloween Night Baker's Twine, on an adorable Halloween bag, which was filled with goodies for my boys:

Thanks so much, Marlene, for all the awesome and amazing goodies and projects!!!

And, thank you for visiting my blog!!!!
