Bat Brownie Treats

Someone a while back told me about Bat Brownies that they found at the store – so I wanted to find them an use them to make a treat with the Trick or Tweet stamp set and the little elephant dressed like a bat.  It took me a while to find them but I did locate them at the big W store.  And now recently I’ve seen them in several stores.  I think I was just too far ahead of Halloween to begin with. 

I basically just created a box that wrapped around the brownie.  Our Grid paper is perfect to help create a box for a treat.  Lay what you want to cover on the paper and trace around it for the height and width.  Flip it on its side to determine the depth.  Be sure you include a flap that overlaps for the adhesive to hold it together.  I normally start with scraps to do my first measurements and then adjust before cutting for my final piece.   After getting the card stock sleeve set just right, add a piece of Designer Series paper around it and then add ribbon and a tag to finish.

  • Trick of Tweet stamp set

More Trick or Tweet

Hello Stamping Friends.  I’m trying to get back on schedule now. 

My little dog Aspen was very very sick and admitted to critical care in the specialist Animal Hospital. After two visits to my regular vet I had to take him there to the ER and they admitted him to the hospital.  He was there for 4 days and I brought him home for one night and then he had new issues and I took him back to the ER and he stayed for 11 more days.  He was one sick doggie. 

But he finally turned the corner and I was able to get him last Friday – which happened to by my Fall retreat weekend.  I brought him back to the cabin and took care of him there along with all the ladies that attended the retreat.  They were a great help to me and loved on him.  Now we have been home for a few days and he continues to improve.  

So now I’m trying to finish sharing all these cute projects with the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  I will try to pick up where I left off.

Today’s project is one of our Mini Pizza Boxes.  Inside I found snacks cakes that are little pumpkin shaped cakes – I’m pretty sure they are pumpkin pie flavored.  I’m not a pumpkin fan so I didn’t eat one.  But any round fairly flat treat will fit in these food safe boxes.   

To color the box I used my Sponge Brayer – I used two colors – Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody.  I wanted kind of an ombre effect so I used the Pumpkin Pie in the center section where the box folds and used the Mango Melody on either end.  Just roll over with the sponge brayer until you achieve the darkness you desire.  I did spray the box with plain hairspray – that’s what we used as a sealer in the old days and I still had a can in my craft closet.  Then decorate the box!

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Mememto Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody
  • 2″ Circle punch
  • Starburst punch
  • 1/2″ circle punch
  • Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Mini Pizza Box
  • Sponge Brayer
  • Pumpkin Pie ink
  • Mango Melody ink

Scare up a little fun

I originally planned to do a FB live today (Wednesday at 3:00 pm) but my little Aspen isn’t feeling well and I had to take him to the vet this morning.  He is still there and I’m waiting on an update so I don’t want to tie up my phone with the live today.  I am now planning to do the live on Thursday at 3:00 pm.  Catch me on my FB Business page At Monika’s Place on Thursday afternoon for a Facebook Live showing you some other cute treat ideas with this stamp set. I’m planning to go live at 3:00 pm EST.

For now here is another little project in honor of my sweet little Aspen.  I wouldn’t call it fun but he did give me a scare – I’m still waiting on some news though.

The little dog on the Trick or Tweet set is all dressed for Halloween.  I found the perfect candy at the store to match – Lemon Lime Twist, Gorgeous Grape and Pumpkin Pie.  It was the Ghoulish mix from the M&Ms.  Since we don’t have a Lemon Lime Twist Blends I did use the Granny Apple Green to color in the cape and band on the hat. 

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Mememto Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
  • 2″ Circle punch
  • Starburst punch
  • 1/8″ handheld punch
  • 1/2″ circle punch
  • Lemon Lime Twist Mini Ruffled Ribbon
  • Whisper White Baker’s Twine

  • Gorgeous Grape card stock
  • 3×6″ Gusseted Cellophane bags

Here is a closer look at the little tag.

Batty for You

I think I love all the little animals in the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  The first one that I actually played with though was the little elephant.  I’ve collected elephants since I was a little girl so this was one I was naturally drawn to. 

There are several new Holiday Catalog products on this card – the Trick or Tweet stamp set, the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, the black glittered ribbon and new Stampin’ Blends in Blackberry Bliss. I thought it turned out to be a fun card.

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Basic Gray card stock
  • Blackberry Bliss card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder
  • Big Sot Die Cutting Machine
  • Memento Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends – Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate
  • Black  3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon
  • 2″ Circle Punch
  • Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper

 

I also wanted to remind you to be sure to use your Bonus Coupons before the end of September.  If you earned them in August you have this month to use them. 

 

Remember I’ll be going live on my FB business page on Wednesday with some more projects using the Trick or Tweent stamp set.

Trick or Tweet Treat Box

All week long I’m going to be featuring this adorable stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog called Trick or Tweet.  It’s a cute little Halloween stamp set with animals dressed up in costumes – a dog, a cat, an elephant, and a little chick.  They are so cute!

Today’s project was one that I created after finding Glow in the Dark candy at the store.  Well the candy doesn’t glow in the dark but the wrappers do.  So I wanted to use our clear tiny treat boxes with the candy inside.  If you leave it out in the light it “charges” up the wrapper so that it will glow later in the dark.  And the wrappers are a perfect match to our Lemon Lime Twist color!

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Clear Tiny Treat Boxes
  • Lemon Lime Twist card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon
  • Basic Black Baker’s Twine
  • StazOn Black ink
  • Stampin’ Write Markers – Lemon Lime Twist, Pineapple Punch, Pumpkin Pie
  • 1/2″ circle punch
  • 1-1/2″ circle punch
  • 1-3/4″ circle punch
  • 1/8″ handheld punch
  • Corrugated Embossing Folder
  • Big Shot Die Cut Machine

I cut a 2″ strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock and ran it through the Big Shot inside the new Corrugated Embossing Folder.  I put that inside the Clear Tiny Treat box to fill the space around the candy inside the box.  The little chick was colored with the Stampin’ Write Markers.  Tie the ombre ribbon around the box and then add the finished tag.

Be sure to catch me on my FB Business page At Monika’s Place on Wednesday afternoon for a Facebook Live showing you some other cute treat ideas with this stamp set. I’m planning to go live at 3:00 pm EST.

Happy Halloween

Well in the case of my card – Happy OWLoween!

It’s a fun card using products from the Spooky Night Suite.

happy-owloween

The fun Spooky Night Designer Series Paper has the spooky trees that you can stamp the owl right on to.  Then I used the witches hat print and cut out a hat to add on the owl.  And the eyes are sparkly with the Black Rhinestones.

I stamped the Happy OWLoween stamp and punched with the 1″ circle punch and then used a 1/16″ punch for a tiny hole to string some Black Baker’s Twine through.

TIP: I often take my clear mount stamps and cut them apart when images and words are on the same stamp.  So when I want to use them separately I can.  And when I want to use them together I just mount them back together on my clear block.  In this set the owl eyes and the Happy OWLoween together but I cut them apart.

Have a Happy Halloween!
