Sweet Hauntings - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop

 Welcome back to the Stampin' UP Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! 
We are just brewing up something sweet with our September 2015 box from Stampin' UP! This box was FULL of super fun holiday products 
from the NEW Stampin' UP Holiday Catalog!!!!!  
I absolutely love this catalog!!!!!
I am so blessed that I get to create with these amazing products and share with you all here! Remember that every Thursday of each week, all 13 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Now on to my second project for September....

This week we are showcasing this Holiday Catalog stamp set called Sweet Hauntings and the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper. Lots of spooky sweetness will take place along the blog hop for sure!
The stamp set has this funny tag in it and I thought why not fill a jar with chocolate to go with it. I could have a little mid day treat and a Halloween decor on my office desk!
I took a wide mouth mason jar and added a door knob to the top of the lid. A little crafty DIY on the topper...Use Crystal Effects to glue the cap to the lid. Let dry for a few hours. I added a 2 1/2" circle punch of the Black Glimmer Paper to the lid first, then tapped a hole into the lid with a small screwdriver all the way thru the metal and paper. I attached a silver cabinet door knob with a smaller screw thru the hole. (a later thought was to get a crystal one)
To add the Designer Series Paper to the jar, use Tape and Tear Adhesive. More Glimmer paper lined to the top and bottom. The Into the Woods 3/8" Cotton Ribbon in Rich Razzleberry made the perfect bow and a punch of color!
To change the color of the Spider Web Doilies, just flip over to the white side and using the Classic ink (Rich Razzleberry here) with a sponge dauber to color it. This gives you even more options with this embellishment!
I wanted to play with this stamp set some more so I created a card too. The watercolor paper is colored with the Rich Razzleberry ink and Aqua Painter. I then used the rectangle framelit from the Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies to cut it out. One more use for the rectangle thinlit...see the outline of Black Glimmer paper? I took a piece of it slightly larger than the thinlit and then cut it out to create just a frame of the Glimmer paper. It fits the watercolor piece perfectly. Less waste of this yummy glittery fun for other projects! The bottles were colored in with Cucumber Crush and they really pop against the background!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you!

I always use a full sheet of glimmer paper when it is a layer - gasp! I am too lazy to cut the middle out ... but now I am going to use that die! Thank-you!

Thank you for showcasing a great way to use the frame die. This is one overlooked piece of that set. It will be arriving by mr.brown shortly. Let the fun begin.

The water colored background looks amazing in that color! And the cucumber crush is a great choice to stand out!
