Tricked Out Treats for InKing Royalty Blog Hop



Welcome to InKing Royalty's September Blog Hop!  Today's Tricked Out Treats Blog Hop is filled with spooky, fun projects for Halloween.  We are excited to share our creations with you today and hope these projects inspire you.  After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

If you're like me, 3D paper crafting can be intimidating, but my projects today are easy peasy!  Take a look at these cute treat holders.



These guys are just the right size to fit a fun size candy bar.  I used Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock along with paper from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper to make them.  I also used the new Cat Punch, Vintage Crochet Trim, and some Black Rhinestone Jewels to glam them up!

I found a really easy tutorial by Jodi Geers at Angie Leach's site, Too Cool Stamping.  Here's the link: Halloween Treat Holders.  I hope you'll have fun making these fun projects for your trick or treaters!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Racheal Shedeed at Bluebonnet Stampin'.  There's lots of inspiration to be found in this group - and you don't want to miss it!

Happy stampin',
Robin

Halloween Bridge Fold Card

Hello,

Today I have a couple of super fun cards that use the Bridge Fold.  It's an easy fold to make but looks super cool!  It even folds flat for mailing!  Here are the cards I made:

 


 Both cards use the Spooky Night DSP and the Spooky Cat Stamp Set.

Directions:


  • Cut a Basic Black Piece of Cardstock to measure 4 1/4 x 8 for your card base.  Score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, and 6 3/4.  Fold the scores so the middle section is on the bottom.
  • Cut 2 strips of DSP 1 x 4.  Cut another DSP piece 2 3/4 x 4.  Glue the small strips on the front 2 panels and the larger on the bottom panel.
  • Cut a Basic Black strip to measure 1 x 5 1/2.
  • Cut a Very Vanilla strip to measure 3/4 x 5 1/4.  Stamp this strip with your greeting and glue to the Basic Black strip.
  • Add your chosen decorations to the strip.  I used the Witch's Hat from the stamp set and fussy cut it for the card on the left.  I cut pumpkins from the DSP for the card on the right.
  • Use Fast Fuse or Tear and Tape Adhesive to glue the strip to the smaller panels. Adhere the strip to the front 2 panels.
  • Cut a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 2 3/4 x 4.  Stamp your chosen greeting and glue it to the back of the large panel.
I hope you give this card fold a try!  You won't be disappointed!


Happy stampin',
Robin
