Happy Holidays Blog Hop-Haunting Hill

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Happy Holidays Blog Tour! Each of the 22 stops on this hop feature products from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini-Catalog--a full 40 pages of amazing products.

Yes, Stampin' Up! has done it again. Every time I think I can start spending less, something extraordinary comes my way and this time it is the Holiday Mini. Be sure to check out the other stops on the Blog Hop as well as the Stampin' Addicts Website for more ideas!

If you just came from Twila's awesome Stamp a Little Longer blog, I hope you enjoyed her fabulous projects featuring the Trick or Tweet set ! My projects feature the Haunting Hill Jumbo Wheel and the Night and Day Designer Series Paper.


I wanted to create a set that could be used before, for, and after a party. I love halloween, so this was exciting and fun to play with. The card features the Spotlighting Technique which makes the wheel image pop.


Stamps: Haunting Hill Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Night and Day Designer Series Paper
Ink: Black Ink Cartridge
Accessories: Not Quite Navy Marker, Old Olive Marker, Bordering Blue Marker, Close to Cocoa Marker, 1/4 inch Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1/4 Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Big Shot, Stampin' Up! Perfect Details Texturz Plates, Texturz Silicone Pad, Texturz Impression Pad

At any Halloween party, candy is essential. Why not make it a part of the decorations?


Stamps: Haunting Hill Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Night and Day Designer Series Paper
Ink: Black Ink Cartridge
Accessories: Not Quite Navy Marker, Old Olive Marker, Bordering Blue Marker, Close to Cocoa Marker, 1/4 inch Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Curly Label Punch, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Paper Crimper, Black Hemp Cord, Dimensionals, Paper Cutter with Scoring Blade

The coolest part of the Night and Day Designer Paper is the two pieces of dotted window sheets! You'll have to look closely to see the dots, but in person, it is SO COOL! The details on the top of the acetate box are simply punched from the Night and Day Designer Series Paper and layered with dimensionals! I used a rubber band to secure the pixie sticks together and covered it with a crimped piece of Basic Black cardstock. I then added the wheeled paper colored like the card and scrapbook page. The candies are covered with a curly label punch on top and bottom and a 1" circle from the wheel design.

After the party is over, the event should be documented in style, so why not make the page ahead of time?

  22. Lovely job Sara! I really loved the window box and the peppermint treats. This DSP is really growing on me and I don't think I realized before today that there were window sheets included with it! What a brilliant idea to introduce us to the sheets along with the paper! SU rocks and so do you.
