Halloween Cauldron

The Baskets and Blooms(although retired) die cut from Basic Black cardstock makes a great cauldron.  The Spooky Bingo Bits images are perfect for punching out and attaching to chocolate kisses.

This was one of the cards that we did this month for Big Shot Club.  The idea was CASE'd from a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  The O's of the boo are formed using the peekaboo frames.  The decorative scallop that the spider image is layered on is from the Perfect Pennants die.  Speaking of the cute spider, it's from the Kidoodles set.  The Pumpkin Pie piece was embossed with the stripes folder.

Sweet Pressed Stamped Cookies

Yes, that's correct, Stampin' Up! has entered the market of creating stamps for cookies!  How cool is that!  The Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamp comes with a sturdy wood handle and three holiday stamps - the pumpkin face on the cookies here, a snowflake, and a heart.  We have some advice though, after trying a couple of different recipes first, FOLLOW THE RECIPES that are included with the product!  There are two recipes, one for sugar cookies (shown here) and one for shortbread.  We served the cookies for our Big Shot Club last week, and everyone enjoyed them!  The Sweet Pressed cookie stamp is only available for a limited time, so be sure to get one before they're gone!

Halloween Box

We've seen some of these done by various demonstrators, as well as at Convention this past summer, so we thought it would make a great Halloween treat container.  This uses the Box #2 Big Shot die and then it's wrapped with a 2 1/2" x 11" strip of cardstock.  The adorable owl is from the Holiday mini hostess set, which coordinates with the owl punch!  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.
