Jar of Haunts: Holiday Traditions

Halloween may be long over, but don’t put away that Jar of Haunts stamp set yet.

The sinister eyes in the Jar of Haunts stamp set was the reason I initially bought this set. They screamed “BUY ME” so loudly that I almost didn’t give the rest of the set a second thought. It wasn’t until I played with the entire set that I really began to like them all.  BUT this image is still my absolute favorite in the set, because I knew I was going to make this guy:

su-sinister-eyes-jar-of-haunts-punch-art

Isn’t he great?!

I really love how this turned out and believe I will be making quite a few of this punch art this season and probably for years to come.  They are quite easy to make and everyone in my family loves holiday television specials, with this guy featuring as one of our favorite characters.  His transformation reminds us of love and that Christmas means more than things. It is this reminder we all need at the holidays.

Materials Needed:

  • Jar of Haunts stamp set
  • Acrylic block (I used D block)
  • Fine tip Scissors such as SU! Paper Snips
  • 1 3/4″ circle punch
  • Stazon Jet Black Ink
  • Project Life Black Pens
  • Old Olive card stock
  • Crushed Curry card stock
  • Fine Tip Glue Pen (or your preferred adhesive)
  • Jolly Hat Builder Punch
  • Cherry Cobbler card stock
  • Whisper White card stock

The Instructions:

  • Punch an Old Olive 1 3/4″ circle.
  • Stamp the eye image in black on this circle towards the top 1/2 of the circle (where eyes would be) & also stamp onto a scrap of Crushed Curry.
  • Cut out just the Crushed Curry eyes, leaving the black border intact, and attach over the Old Olive image.
  • Use a black Project Life Pen to draw the nose, grin, chin mark, and extra eyebrow markings.
  • Add a Cherry Cobbler & Whisper White Christmas hat made from the Jolly Hat Builder Punch.
  • Add a Whisper White fur strip from the Jolly Hat Builder Punch & then Cherry Cobbler one under it to mimic his collar & shirt.

I thought he would be cute to put in cards; punch a small hole and add a string for an inexpensive little decoration to send along in some of my cards as an added surprise.  Then I decided I also wanted to make him into a card.  This is how that turned out:

su-sinister-eyes-jar-of-haunts-christmas-card

The additional materials needed to make the card include:

  • Moroccan DSP (Delightful Dijon quatrafoil pattern) cut 3″x4″
  • Soft Suede CS cut 2 1/8″x4″
  • Old Olive CS for card base 5.5″x8.5″, scored in half @ 4.25″
  • Old Olive CS  2″x3″ for Scalloped Oval Die cut
  • Whisper White CS  2″x3″ for Oval Die cut
  • Early Espresso CS cut 1/2″x4″
  • Soft Suede Ink
  • Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
  • Big Shot
  • SU! Snips
  • Layered Ovals Framelits
  • Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp “Merry Christmas”
  • Acrylic Block D (can use smaller, I prefer this size for hand grasp)
  • A small scrap of Cherry Cobbler CS for hand cut heart
  • dauber
  • Dimensionals &/or Foam Adhesive Strips (I recommend having both)
  • Access to running water
  • Paper towel or old towel
  • Fine Tip Glue Pen

Instructions for card:

  • Attach Moroccan DSP using SU! Snail adhesive to top half of card leaving equal edge borders.
  • Attach Punch art character to Moroccan DSP.  Use Dimensionals or Foam Adhesive strips to raise hat & head portion, while applying SU! Snail adhesive to Collar portion.  *Collar bottom should line up with DSP bottom.
  • Stamp “Merry Christmas” from Teeny Tiny Wishes set onto Whisper White CS
  • Cut Merry Christmas sentiment (center it) using Layering Oval (2nd smallest oval) Framelit & Big Shot
  • Attach White Oval to Scalloped Oval with Dimensionals
  • Cut Layering Framelits Scalloped Oval from Old Olive CS
  • Apply Soft Suede Ink directly to raised side of the Brick Wall Textured Embossing Folder and run Soft Suede CS thru Big Shot. *Pay attention that bricks are running length of CS in proper orientation for card
  • Immediately run your empty inky embossing folder under water to rinse away ink.  Dry with towel.
  • Using Dauber & Soft Suede Ink, add ink to edges and any additional to bricks as you desire to give aged appearance.
  • Attach brick CS to lower half of card base using Dimensionals or Foam Adhesive Strips
  • Adhere Early Espresso CS strip so that it covers both brick & DSP area evenly.
  • Adhere Sentiment Oval directly to brick
  • Hand cut a Cherry Cobbler heart (use pencil to draw first if desired) & attach directly to brick
  • Add Fine Tip Glue Pen to entire heart to make glossy (this will take time-usually many hours/overnight+ to dry completely.  So, you may wish to omit if you can not leave it undisturbed for this long)

I have not yet completed an insert panel for this card, but I was thinking of using the stamp “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” as the interior sentiment.

I hope you now look at these eyes differently and find the Jar of Haunts set is not just for Halloween.

How to make guilt free Candy Apples

It is Autumn, which means it is time to make things with apples!

Apple pie, apple sauce, apple butter, apple crisp, apple dumplings, apple cider, & candy apples. Here in Pennsylvania it is that time of year when making things with apples is at its peak. Biglerville, PA even holds the National Apple Harvest Festival and is finishing its two weekend run this weekend. While I haven’t been there for years, I have many fond memories from this festival from my childhood. At the festival you could make your way thru a multitude of stalls with apple-centric crafts and eat your way thru the experience with any of the above (and then some) apple-y treats. As a young girl I would never leave the festival without some type of candied apple on a stick. Yum! For this reason, I decided to make the following card to send to a family member who would get a good laugh at the memories conjured up by this autumn greeting.

su-jar-of-haunts-candy-apples-punch-art-card

The best part is that these apples can be enjoyed without the guilt of the calories that comes with the real thing.  Although, I think pairing these with a homemade apple treat might be nice, don’t you?

If you’d like to make this card, or just the punch art apples, read on for the details.

Instructions:

  • The Card Layers include a Soft Suede card stock (CS) base, Early Espresso layer and Early Espresso striped DSP layer (from the Neutrals DSP Stack).
  • Since chocolate drizzle seemed the most appealing, I went with Early Espresso Ink to stamp the image from Jar of Haunts onto a 1 3/4” punch circle in both Cherry Cobbler & Pear Pizzazz card stock.
  • Then I used the same color to color in the stamped image.
  • The circle was then also punched using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch’s largest circle(s) which is located close to the punch edge and allow for the 1 3/4” punched circle to be inserted so that a portion can be punched to form the ‘bump’ you may find on each apple.
  • A 2”x5/8” strip of Crumb Cake CS was inserted into the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch leg in order to get the rounded Popsicle stick look.
  • The 1/2” x 4” Soft Suede inked & embossed Brick Wall strip was made by inking the embossing folder before running thru the Big Shot machine.
  • Layered oval framelits with “sweet treats” sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set were stamped in Early Espresso Ink.
  • Whisper White Twine bows were added on each stick.
  • To finish it off, I added a glossy look to the chocolate drizzle by adding glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen to the entire chocolate drizzle area.

*Note: These will need to dry for about 24hrs, so make sure you have the space to leave them untouched for the glue to dry and take on that shiny appearance.

I set my stamp pad down on my first green apple while the glue was still sticky and didn’t notice it right away.  Once discovered, I was able to clean the glue off the ink pad, but I had to remake the apple. I got a good laugh since this triggered a memory of a time I was eating a candy apple and it slipped off the stick after only a few bites, creating a similar sticky situation & subsequent cleaning.  Isn’t it interesting how things can  bring back memories?   I hope this card brings back some good, and fun times for the recipient.

I hope you have a go at making some of these no-calorie, guilt free candy apples.

If you need any of the wonderful Stampin’ Up! products to make this or any other item, I’d love to be your demonstrator. You can shop with me by clicking HERE. Any order before October, 28, 2016 using hostess code: Q6HTERV3 will include a handmade card sample (my choice) sent directly from me as a thank you.

Wondrous Wreath meets Punch Art

When I purchased the Wondrous Wreath stamp set & matching dies from the 2014 holiday catalog, I knew I would be using it year round.  I’m glad it stuck around and made it into two Annual catalogs (so far) so that others could find the beauty of this set.

With the addition of some cute punch art and sentiments in die cut banners,  I believe the resulting cards are totally adorable!

The first is this jack-o-lantern wearing a punch art witch hat:

su-wondrous wreath jack-o-lantern-witch-punch-art-wreath-card-design

Isn’t that card quite a treat?!

Did you figure out the witch’s hat was made from the Fox Builder Punch?   If you read on, I”ll give you instructions.

But first, check out another card with a cute punch art crow in a similar card design using the Wondrous Wreath set.

su-crow-punch-art- wondrous wreath-card-design

Crows are kind of a quirky little bird; a bit of a nuisance, but fun to watch this time of year when most of the prettier summer birds have already begun their migration to warmer climates.  Maybe not so funny if they are chomping on your pumpkins or jack-o-lanterns though.

The focal point of these cards is the punch art hat & crow adorning the Jar of Haunts Jack-o-lantern nesting in the Wondrous Wreath.

The punch art creations are very simply made with some of  the fabulous Stampin’ Up! punches.  Punches are by far one of my favorite things, after stamps, in the Stampin’ Up! product line.  So easy to use and versatile too.

The pieces:

su-punch-art-for-wondrous-wreath-cards

The Instructions:

The hat:

  •  Using the Fox Builder Punch & Basic Black CS, punch the entire body portion only and trim away white areas as shown in photo of pieces above.
  • Using the Fox Builder Punch & Basic Black CS, insert CS into the body portion so that only the bottom strip of the body punches out, giving you the black strip.  Repeat this to give you 2 Basic Black CS punched strips, and 1 Pumpkin Pie punched strip
  • Adhere Pumpkin Pie CS strip directly over the same area on your body punch which you’ve punched and trimmed to form the pointed hat top
  • Adhere Basic Black punch strips, one at a time slightly below Pumpkin Pie CS strip so that a portion of the orange shows AND an overhang creating the hat brim occurs.  The second black strip will overlap the first.
  • Attach this hat to the jack-o-lantern (OR any other critter or character to dress them for Halloween!)

The Crow:

It is made with the Fox Builder Punch, Owl Builder Punch, and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

  • Using Basic Black CS, punch the body from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and trim away white areas as shown in photo.
  • Using Basic Black CS & the Fox Builder Punch,  punch 2 tail ends (no need to punch entire tail, just insert enough CS to cut tips of tail closest to punch edge) You will trim these later to follow curve of the pumpkin.
  • Using Basic Black CS & the Fox Builder Punch, punch 1  swooshy-thing (see photo) for feathers coming out top of crow’s head. Adhere to top underside of head punch.
  • Using Crushed Curry CS (other yellows work too) and Fox Builder Punch, punch the mask and trim to form beak.  Adhere to head (make sure you are adhering to front side-the “feather” is coming out top of underside/back.
  • Using Whisper White CS, Punch the small circles from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch for the eyes.
  • Using Basic Black CS, punch the smallest circles from the Owl Builder Punch for the eyes.
  • Adhere the Basic Black eye circles to the Whisper White eye circles
  • Adhere the assembled eyes to the head -they are best spaced within the beak width and just slightly above.
  • Attach Crow body to Pumpkin & wings as shown in final card.  You will trim wings to follow the edge of pumpkin so that it appears he is peeking out from behind it.

**TIP** This crow is meant to be hidden behind something, if you choose to hide him behind something other than this pumpkin, you may need to adjust how large his wings are and how they are trimmed to fit the piece.  (Try having him pop out of Jars or behind banners, holding signs, or peeking over fences or photos on a scrapbook page.

Instructions for the remainder of the card:

  • The card base is Basic Black CS 8.5″x5.5″ scored in 1/2 @ 4.25″ and folded
  • The 1st layer is Pumpkin Pie CS 4″x5.25″
  • The Hardwood Background stamped Layer is Crumb Cake CS stamped in Soft Suede Ink 3.75″x5″
  • The Wondrous Wreath is stamped in White Craft Ink onto Basic Black CS and Embossed with White Embossing Powder & heat gun. It is cut out using the matching dies.
  • The Sentiments are from Teeny Tiny Wishes & Banners For You stamped onto Pumpkin Pie CS using Stazon Jet Black Ink and die cut using Bunch of Banners Framelits (which is also available bundled with the Banners for you stamps)
  • The Jar of Haunts jack-o-lantern face was stamped onto Pumpkin Pie CS using Stazon Jet Black Ink, the pumpkin was stamped using Calypso Coral Ink.  The pumpkin was fussy cut using SU! snips (scissors).
  • The Banner sentiment & jack-o-lantern/punch art are popped up using dimensionals

I hope you’ve enjoyed these cards featuring the Wondrous Wreath set & my punch art designs. While I hope you find many other uses for my punch art,  I spent a lot of time creating my designs.  So, please remember to be kind and credit me if you are using these and sharing with others.  Check out my Terms of Use Page.

As always, should you wish to purchase some of these great Stampin’ Up! products, I’d be honored if you’d choose me as your demonstrator. I’m only a few sales away from my next title promotion.  You can shop with me as your demonstrator HERE.  If you place your order by October 28, 2016 AND enter this month’s Hostess code Q6HTERV3 on your online order form, I’ll send a replica of one of the two cards (my choice) you’ve seen above as a personal thank you.

Jar of Haunts: Mummy Cards

Before I was able to make these Jar of Haunts Mummy Cards, I had to fall in love (or at least like) with the Jar of Haunts mummy jar stamp. I accomplished that. I really like the results of the stepped up & simple version  of my Jar of Haunts Mummy Cards:

su-jar-of-haunts-mummy-cards

Have you ever looked at a stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! catalog and debated purchasing it because only one image called out to you?  Jar of Haunts was this set for me. This mummy jar was cute, but not cute enough to get me to buy the set.  Even already owning the Everyday Jar Framelits didn’t make me like this mummy more.  Although it did pull on the strings of usefulness for that earlier Annual Catalog purchase which I already really enjoy.

Because I fell in love with another image in this Jar of Haunts stamp set (to be divulged in a future post), I knew I HAD to buy this set. So, I did.  And I am SO happy with this purchase, because I came to like every image in the set.

How does this happen? How can I go from loving only one image to being fond of the entire stamp set?

I force myself to sit down and play with ALL the stamps in a set.

I spend one crafty play time period (however long or short that may be) and focus on stamping and experimenting with those images.  Usually this starts by stamping the images on either Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock (CS) and then a decision on how to add other colors or textures follows.

This Jar of Haunts mummy card was made just that way.  I stamped the image on Very Vanilla CS using Soft Suede Ink and then considered how I would add color and texture.  My first  mummy card was the 3D version, although it is a bit complex & time consuming in design.  So, if you want a quicker version skip to the next card photo below this one.

3D Jar of Haunts Mummy Card:

su-jar-of-haunts-3d-mummy-card

In order to recreate this card you will need to:

The Mummy Jar

  1. Stamp the Jar of Haunts Mummy image using Soft Suede ink 3x onto Very Vanilla CS.  Also stamp just the eye area of this stamp onto a scrap of Old Olive CS.
  2. Use the Everyday Jars Framelits and your Big Shot to cut out all 3 images.
  3. Using the gauze looking stamp from the Timeless Textures Stamp set & Crumb Cake ink, stamp all over the 3 jars.
  4. Cut along the Jar of Haunts Mummy’s strip lines in order to create individual wraps.  You will not use them all.  You want the soft suede lines to show (so you don’t have to go back and shade the edges), so some pieces will need to be discarded as you have trimmed away this line.
  5. You will have 3 layers showing.  One layer is the base layer.  Nothing is added over some strip areas.  The second layer is strips added directly over the base with your favorite adhesive (SU! Snail, for instance), the 3rd layer is popped up using dimensionals (I chose the top, bottom, and center S area as my popped up sections-in other words, 5 strips got dimensionals)
  6.  Using fine tip scissors such as the SU! Paper Snips, cut out the Old Olive eye area and adhere over the eye area on your jar.
  7. Add Rhinestones to eyes.

The Sentiment

  1. Using the Layering Ovals Framelits, cut out Layers for the sentiment using Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, & Old Olive CS.  The Very Vanilla oval is the 3rd smallest oval.
  2. Stamp the Very Vanilla oval sentiment in Soft Suede ink with the “Happy Halloween” from the Jar of Haunts stamp set.
  3. Stamp the bottom portion of the Jar of Haunts mummy jar in Soft Suede ink to create a surround of mummy wrap around the “Happy Halloween”
  4. Stamp 2 scraps of Very Vanilla CS with just the bottom portion of the mummy jar
  5. Using a Mask (a post-it works well) placed at the inside edge of the mummy wrap to keep the sentiment from getting ink, stamp the Timeless Textures gauze stamp in crumb cake.  Move mask as needed to stamp entire wrap area. See Photos:
  6. su-jar-of-haunts-mummy-card-piecessu-jar-of-haunts-mummy-card-pieces-1
  7. Cut apart bottom of jar scraps to create layers as you did for the mummy jar layers above (refer to steps 4 & 5 for mummy jar)
  8. Attach Very Vanilla layer to Chocolate Chip Layer with Dimensionals & Old Olive layer with Adhesive
  9. Add Rhinestone to dot below sentiment

The Blood Drips

  • Stamp Blood drips from the Jar of Haunts stamp set repeatedly in a line using Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut out using fine tip scissors, such as SU! Paper Snips. There is no need to worry about overlap of the stamping or cutting extremely close because you will color with a Cherry Cobbler Marker AFTER cutting out your image.  You will want to stamp about a 7″ length of blood drips so you can cut & edit for your card.

su-jar-of-haunts-mummy-card-pieces-2

  • Make sure when you color your blood drips you have something under your paper so you can color the whole way to the edge and not worry about messing up your table.
  • To  get a great blood look, apply the Fine Tip Glue Pen glue in a thin layer all over your blood.  *NOTES: 1) your marker ink needs to be dry before continuing to this step.  If it is not dry the glue and your ink will react and you will not get a deep blood red color and may be disappointed. I suggest making and assembling the remainder of the card and returning for this step last. 2) You will need to allow the Fine Tip Glue to dry after application.  This takes anywhere from 6-48hrs depending on the humidity and drying climate where you live.   So, be prepared to have this sitting undisturbed in a nice flat area for up to 2 days.

The Card Base

  1. You will need 1 Soft Suede CS card base 5.5″x8.5″ scored in half @ 4.25″ to form a standard 5.5″x4.25″ card.
  2. You will need 1 Soft Suede CS piece measuring 4″x5.25″ which you will run thru the Big Shot with an Soft Suede inked Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (apply ink straight from pad to interior raised side of the embossing folder before inserting paper and running thru machine) After removing embossed/inked paper, immediately run the embossing folder under water to wash away any residual ink and prevent from staining folder.
  3. Using Early Espresso ink and sponge dauber, sponge edges and various areas of image to add more depth & detail.
  4. Attach Brick wall CS to card base using dimensionals.

Finish It

  1. Adhere Jar of Haunts Mummy, sentiment, and Blood drips using your favorite adhesive.
  2. Add Fine Tip Glue Pen glue to blood drips to really make the blood shine and look real. (see blood drips above for drying time)

I know that many people would say that is a lot of work for one card, but I enjoy the process of creating and often find cards with many steps to be the most fun.

Do you need to make a cute card but don’t have the time to create the one above?  Try this one:

Easy Jar of Haunts Mummy Card

su-jar-of-haunts-easy-mummy-card

  1. You will need 1 Soft Suede CS card base 5.5″x8.5″ scored in half @ 4.25″ to form a standard 5.5″x4.25″ card.
  2. You will need 1 Old Olive CS piece measuring 4″x5.25″-adhere it to your standard base
  3. You will need 1 Crumb Cake CS piece measuring 3.75″x5″, Stamp this piece with Soft Suede ink and the Hardwood Background stamp.  *TIPs: 1) Background stamps lying face up with ink applied to them and paper applied over is easiest for best imprints.  Use a stamp block or your hand to apply pressure to the paper so it picks up the ink from the stamp. 2) It is important to put the paper straight down and pick straight up. 3) This size paper will leave areas of the inked background stamp with ink remaining.  You can take advantage of this on the Hardwood stamp.  Hold your paper so the edges are able to pick up ink and drag across the stamp.  You will be creating a look similar to using sponges or daubers without having to get them out. Repeat with all 4 sides of the paper.  And when barely any ink is on the rubber you can even set the paper down and swipe across the main portion of the rubber stamp, giving your image depth and highlighted areas.  And you didn’t have to have any other tools!
  4. Adhere Hardwood background to your Old Olive & card base layers.
  5. Stamp the Jar of Haunts mummy jar using Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla CS.
  6. Cut out mummy jar using Everyday Jars Framelits.
  7. Ink edges and lightly in interior using Early Espresso ink and a dauber.
  8. Color face using Old Olive Marker.
  9. Adhere to base using dimensionals.
  10. Cut out 3rd smallest oval from Layering Ovals Framelits in Old Olive.
  11. Stamp “Happy Halloween” from Jar of Haunts set onto Old Olive Oval
  12. Layer sentiment with Chocolate Chip CS scalloped oval from Layering Ovals Framelits. Adhere together using dimesionals.
  13. Apply adhesive generously (SU! Snail is actually great for this step as it is forgiving in the next step) to bottom of Chocolate Chip Scalloped Oval but leave face up until next step.
  14. Wrap Gold Metallic Thread around 3 of your fingers 6x.  Attach to the Chocolate Chip Scalloped Oval by placing in this oval shape (as formed by wrapping around your fingers) and fluffing as needed.
  15. Adhere the entire sentiment, with thread now attached, to your card.
  16. Adhere Rhinestone to the dot on the “Happy Halloween” sentiment.

Do you like the Jar of Haunts mummy?

How about those blood drips; aren’t they great when they glisten with the glue applied?  So worth waiting on it to dry!

I hope you read thru and found some of the hidden notes & tips in the instructions.
