    Bite Me Photopolymer Stamp Set

    Sep 25
    I wanted a stamp set that would allow me to create both cute and creepy looks for Halloween—so I designed one! Surprisingly, my fear of spiders became my inspiration.  read more...
    Robyn created our eerily inviting Halloween food table:

    “My treat table was inspired by a sheet of paper that comes in the Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper. Creating picks and labels for my treats was quick and easy. And the paper coordinates perfectly with the Witches’ Brew Designer Washi Tape and the Basic Black 3/4" Chevron Ribbon. Putting together a selection of spooky snacks was so simple!”

    Chrissy created this darling invitation using My Digital Studio:

    “I created this invitation using MDS elements like Eventful Year and First Edition Designer Series Paper, then added traditional products like Burlap Ribbon, punches, Pumpkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, the new Witches’ Brew Designer Washi Tape, etc. Hybrid invitations make it easy to include all of your party information, but they still have a handmade feel when you add a bit of traditional paper crafting. I love how this invitation turned out and hope you find it inspiring!”

    Next, Melody has created a wonderful décor piece. Here’s what she had to say about this frightfully fun project:

    “Creating décor pieces is by far my favorite thing to do for Halloween. Stampin' Up! has so many fun Halloween-themed products to use for creating projects to decorate your home. Some of my favorite, new products are the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit and the accessory kits that coordinate with the banner. I used the Stampin' Spritzer to dye the banner pennant Basic Gray. I also dyed a strip of Creped Filter Paper using Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill, then used my Paper Snips to create the fringe. Last, I dyed the Silver Glimmer Paper with Summer Starfruit ink to give it an eerie, yellow hue. I layered pieces of Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper with the other pieces to add more fun textures and patterns. The sparkly skull was the perfect element to finish the project.”

    I’ve been dying to try iron-ons with My Digital Studio and our Mini Muslin Bags—and this was the perfect opportunity! First, I selected a stamp from MDS’s Halloween Bash Stamp Brush Set and colored it in. Then, I mirrored the image in MDS (the image needs to be backwards for it to work with the iron-ons). Next, I printed the images on my iron-ons, ironed them to the Mini Muslin Bags, then peeled off the backing.
