Heart2Heart Challenge: Halloween or Pumpkin

Smiley from millan.net  This is my boys' favorite time of year...just before Halloween when the antici...pation for Trick or Treating is nearly overwhelming.Smiley from millan.net  And while we don't exactly have falling leaves around here, it is cool enough during the early day to keep all the doors and windows open...and that's a plus with me!

I've been waiting to show this Stamp Camp project properly and with the Heart2Heart Challenge this week being Halloween or Pumpkin themed, it was the perfect time!  And it has been so long since I've been able to join in on the challenges, I've missed them.   What's more, I think I'll be able to complete every challenge this month!  Woohoo for me!

Okay, now back to this week's challenge.  This Halloween project was the project I created for the Holiday Stamp Camp back over Labor Day.  And it was also my Creative Class held last week.  The ladies loved it!  Take a peek:

The top of the My Creations Card Box is decorated with the new Moonlight Complements Dimensional Elements and Olive Twine from the Baker's Twine Harvest Assortment.  I used Liquid Glass to highlight bits of the banner pieces and the cat's eyes and nose.  There is also a touch of Green Glitz Glitter Gel (say that 5 times fast!) on its eyes.  The long banner piece is for writing the name of the recipient of your wonderful Halloween treat!

The front of the box has a couple of cute pumpkins and a spooky ghost from the complements sheets.

And once again, I used Liquid Glass and highlighted the ghost's eyes and mouth as well as the pumpkins' eyes.  Green Glitz for the stems and around the EEK! for a touch of sparkle.

Open up the box and you have a cute little Halloween scene!  Lots of Glitz and Liquid Glass to add sparkle: moon, windows, Frank, the spider.  Even some Silver Glitz on the "cauldron"!

The cupcake wrapper was cut at 1.75" from the Artiste cartridge, found on page 77.  Fill it with a bag of your favorite candy! Smiley from millan.net

A couple of Tombstones to decorate the sides of the box, cut from the Artiste at 2.8 cm in Whisper and Slate cardstock.  I filled in the RIP with Silver Glitz.

Quick and easy to put together...well, aside from all the waiting for everything to dry part!

I hope you enjoyed my little project!  So now are you wondering how I colored the box itself?  Easy, but not necessarily neatly!  I did one box for my display for camp.  This was done with our Spray Pens, Black reinker, water, alcohol, and Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint.  Well, I needed to get several boxes done for camp and our little Spray Pens only hold so much.  I used one of our travel spray bottles and made a big batch of the spray.  It worked fantastically!

Until I realized something important. Smiley from millan.net
So if you attempt to make many boxes at a time as gifts, one word of caution:
