Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop 2016: Jar of Haunts

Welcome to the final stop (or first) of the Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop!

The New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is UNBELIEVABLE and went live on September First! To help you create your wish list, a group of Demonstrator friends and I are presenting you with a plethora of projects featuring brand new Stampin' Up! Products.  You can start here and go forward to see Betty's use of Sweet Home or you can go backward to see Rhonda's Cookie Cutter Halloween post. Either way, it will fun full of fun!

I've loved jars forever. My grandma Leone was a master canner. I loved those peaches and blackberries at every meal! I resisted the Jar of Love products in the main catalog, but I couldn't resist Jar of Haunts!

For my first card, I wanted to showcase the goulishness of the jars:

The stamp set doesn't include a tall jar, so I had to make one by masking. Pretty cool. huh? Those eyeballs floating is what got my attention about this set. I really wanted to make a card with them. To color this card, I used my aquapainters and the ink pads. I wanted a messy look. The background is the brick wall embossed on Smokey Gray and then I rubbed my Basic Gray ink pad on it to add color and texture in some parts. Two other accessories from the Holiday Catalog that add that perfect tough are the Halloween Night Candy Dots and the Halloween Night Baker's Twine.

My next project was one I had in my head, but it took a while to work out the details! The left side is the card front as seen at first...

and the right side is what happens when you find the secret pull tab to reveal what's hiding the in the jar! What I love about this card, is that I used a Christmas product- Real Red Embossing Powder on a Halloween Card. You just never know when you might use something!

My next card is a traditional fall card:
I just love that pumpkin! For this card, I used aquapainters on watercolor paper. Check back next week for a video on how I created my own hardwood background without the stamp.

My final project is a little treat to give away, and then use as a candle (battery-kind) holder when done. Here's a picture from all four sides:

The inside is a Clear Tiny Treat Box that works perfectly for a window! I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut the window in my jars. The jar with the lid, was created by using the Copper Foil, but the photo would not show it, I just love this set!

That's all I have! I will post more details and a video next week, but until then, go forward to Betty's Sweet Home post or go backward to Rhonda's Cookie Cutter Halloween projects!
