3-D projects, Cards, Halloween

Buffalo Check Background and Cat Punch


It is sweltering hot and humid today in Minnesota! But I know I shouldn’t complain, at least we don’t have hurricanes here. It just seems like we get everything else though! Anyway, too hot to be outside, so it is perfect day to be inside in the air conditioning PAPERCRAFTING!

Here is what I made today! I wanted to show you more samples with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp. I made a halloween card and treat holder.  I used the Cat Punch as the focal point.


I stamped happy halloween on a crumb cake piece of cardstock and added a pearl to the corner which I colored with a black sharpie.


I punched out the cat with the Cat Punch and mounted on a circle of Crushed Curry cardstock.


Here is the treat holder. Again using the punched out cat as the focal point! Don’t you just love the Buffalo Check Background stamp?


This treat holder is so easy to make. Just cut to fit the width of your cello bag. Stampin’Up! does have 3 x 6 gusseted bags in the catalog. This particular bag is a flat bag. But the gusseted ones you can really make some cute treat holders that are 3-D.  I am out of the gusseted bags right now so I will show you one by Kathy Maurer a fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrator.

Halloween Treat Bag made with Stampin' Up!'s Spooky Cat Stamp Set and Cat Punch. For details, go to my Wednesday, September 20, 2017 blog at http://www.stampinup.net/blog/2130686/entry/spooky_cat_treat_bag

Isn’t Kathy’s treat holder just darling!  I made a bunch of these last year for Halloween, which is why I am out of the gusseted bags. It is time to reorder these, they are so much fun to work with and I like the fact that they will stand alone.


I hope you all like my projects! I sure enjoyed making them. Supplies will be listed below. Be sure to take time to CREATE! It is good for you!
