Halloween Hop!

Welcome to the fun this month with our Hopping Just for the Fun of It blog hop.  You are in for a treat today as you see the fun Fall and Halloween ideas that some amazing Stampin' Up! artists have come up with.  Please sit back and enjoy the ride today as you hop from blog to blog.  You can start anywhere and end anywhere - just enjoy the cards and projects we have prepared for you.

You have just come from stop #11 -Stamp With Jane.  Didn't you LOVE her great ideas for the Sorting Hat?!  I have some fun stuff for you today.

I am not really a Halloween person I have to admit, I have good intentions but never seem to find enough people to send things to.  First up is a little test tube box I found on Lisa Sommerville's blog.  I have a tutorial I will post later this week for you all.  I have a little similarity going with each project - maybe you can see what it is?  Post a comment if you can figure it out!

Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits
Colors: Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Lace Border punch, Postage Stamp punch, 1" sq. punch

This next card also uses the Spooky Bingo Bits set.  It is a fun, simple design.  

Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits, Grateful Greetings
Colors: Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Island Indigo
Accessories: Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Scallop Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Postage Stamp punch, 1" sq. punch, Corner Rounder punch

The next card is a very popular fancy fold design these days around the stamping world - I have seen lot's of samples, and probably the best is Dawn Griffith's video. Do you notice the fun medallion???  I will show you a tutorial of that later this week also!

Stamps: Jack of all Trades, Spooky Bingo Bits
Colors: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Accessories:  Frightful Sight DSP, 1 3/4" scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch

And the last project I have for you is a 3-D box that I saw on an email group I'm on using the Big Shot machine and the ever popular Top Note Die!  Cute way to give a small sweet treat to someone you love!

Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits, It's a Wrap Holidays
Colors: Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Basic Black
Accessories: 1 3/4" Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch
