Halloween Nugget Treat


Here is another project for my fall craft sale.  These were very simple to make.  I found the basic directions here, http://www.beebugcreations.com/2011/02/valentine-box-tutorial.html.  Once again, I used the retired Ghostly Greetings designer paper along with the retired Only Orange cardstock and the retired Kiwi Kiss cardstock.

The stamp is not from Stampin' Up.  Like I said before, I do not make many Halloween projects and do not own any Halloween Stampin' Up stamps.  This was from a $1 clear mount set from either AC Moore or Michaels.  Not sure if you can get them any more because I bought these probably 3-4 years ago!

Halloween Top Note Treat Box

My mom, aunt, cousin and I are putting together things for a craft sale at my Grandmother's church in October.  I do not own many Halloween stamps or accessories, but I figured Halloween stuff might sell, so I pulled out what I have to make these cute boxes!

I had bought this designer paper several years ago (not sure why, but oh well!).  It's called Ghostly Greetings and it's now retired from Stampin' Up.  I dug through my drawer of non-Stampin' Up stamps.. most of them are those $1 ones from AC Moore & Michael's.  For some reason, I would go each week and buy tons of them... can't say I've used them much, but I'm glad I had this one for these boxes!

This was really easy to make.  I took the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and modified it because I wanted my box to be open on the top.

I plan on selling these for $5 each.  They will be filled with Halloween themed candy and/or snacks!

Up Up Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my *new* blog home!  I had set my old blogger up with an email address that I no longer use, so it was becoming a pain to log in and out of my google account each time I wanted to post to my blog!  Anyway, I have moved everything over and here we are!  Please update your bookmark to http://stampinwithriley.blogspot.com/

Now, on to my card!  I made this for this week's sketch & color combination challenges over on Splitcoast Stampers.  I have been away from stamping for a while, so I am going back and doing challenges I've missed over the past month or so.

I just got this great new set from Stampin' Up called Up, Up, & Away.  It was one of my first "must haves" when I got the new catalog! 

The colors this week are: Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, and Island Indigo.  I also added a touch of Pool Party!  I love this fun color combination, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
