Sweet Centers Halloween Card


I can’t get enough of this fabulous new stamp set!  Sweet Centers with the Sweet Treat Cups is the cutest idea yet!  Here I’ve created a Halloween card using the color scheme that Stampin’ Up! features in their Halloween collection on pages 22 and 23 of the Idea Book & Catalog.  Whenever I want a fresh, new color palette, I turn to Stampin’ Up!’s fantastic color choices and the Catalog helps me so much!

The card base is Basic Black, with the 8-1/2"x11" paper cut lengthwise to 4-1/4"x11".  This allows me to wrap that gorgeous Crushed Curry 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon around the end of the card.  I used the pretty flourish stamp from Friends 24/7 to stamp on the Old Olive card stock in two of the corners, then tore the opposite edge.  Next comes a piece of Crushed Curry card stock.  I stamped my Halloween image in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on Whisper White card stock, punched out the center with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch, then filled my Sweet Treat Cup with gourmet lemon jelly beans–the perfect color!

I didn’t want to waste that cute little saying that I punched out of the main image, so I adhered it to the inside of the card, then drew a line with my White Gel Pen to "hang" the spider from the card.

Here we go!



I’m trying my very first post with my new WordPress account!  Wow, is this different!  Please be patient with me as I learn to navigate this fabulous new tool!

My first post is of a project that some of you Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will recognize.  It was featured in the September 09 issue of Stampin’ Success, a monthly magazine with lots of wonderful stamping project ideas.  I changed it just a bit using a different base.

I first used the Sweet Centers stamp set found in the new Holiday Mini catalog and stamped the petals in Crushed Curry Classic Ink and the leaf in Old Olive Classic Ink on Whisper White card stock.  I cut out all of the petals with my wonderful Paper Snips and adhered them to a Sweet Treat Cup, then added the leave in back.  The center is filled with red M&M’s and held in place with a 2/12" round piece of Crushed Curry card stock cut out with the Circle Scissors Plus and adhered to the back.  I used a bamboo skewer as the stem and tied on a piece of Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.  The flower pot is made with the Big Shot and the Baskets & Blooms Bigz XL Die using Bermuda Bay textured card stock.  I tied a piece of 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon also in Bermuda Bay on the handle and added a tag.  The sentiment "sweet treats" is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Real Red Classic Ink and punched out with the Modern Label Punch.  I added a flower by punching Crushed Curry card stock with the Trio Flower Punch and added a black brad from the Vintage Brads packet.  The flower pot is filled with chocolates which hold the flower straight.
