WMS August Sneak Peek Day 2

Hello and welcome back to the Waltzingmouse Stamps sneak peeks! It's day two and I'm just gettin' warmed up! Halloween projects are a lot of fun and I'm really enjoying these new stamps! Today I'm featuring the Midnight Feast set again, available July 27:

How about a ghoulish recipe set? I created this little recipe holder box with my Silhouette using a template I downloaded online from the QuicKutz store. I love the fancy scalloped edge on the front flap. I stamped the box with a plaid pattern using Off Beat Backgrounds, but it turned out very subtle and it's hard to see in these photos. I also sponged the edges with ink and added some black paint spatters. For the label, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from Midnight Feast. The satin ribbon started out white but I "dyed" it with a Copic marker, scrunched it up and dabbed it a bit onto my orange pigment ink pad. A little spider charm finished it off:

For the recipe cards themselves, I created the lines on a Word document and then printed it onto Kraft cardstock. I used my Label Eight die from Spellbinders to cut them down to size. They fit into the box perfectly and they match the label on the front of the box. To finish these off, I stamped the recipe name on each card and added a few smaller images from Midnight Feast.

So wouldn't this make a fun little hostess gift? Or, create a set of these cards for yourself to jot down all of your spooky Halloween party ideas and recipes. Either way, it's a fun and unexpected project!

Now make sure to check out the other WMS design team members for their peeks. You never know what terrifying treats await you!

Have a terrific day and come back again tomorrow for my last sneak peek! It will chill you to the bone!

So amazed. So inspired. I never know what to do for Halloween and this idea is the perfect idea! Thanks for the inspiration.

How COOL is this?!!! I love the "shaped" recipe cards (way to add some pizazz to a boring old recipe card!) This would make such a terrific, unique gift!

Lynn Mercurio said...

Brilliant creation, Jennifer. So wonderfully design and not only does your creativity shine, but you have really showcased these images so well.

Nancy said...

Your sense of humor is what is ghoulish, not the recipe box! How fabulous that you used that sentiment on the outside of the box. You set off my party planning mode and I could see these sentiments being used on a buffet (or even a passed platter) so that people had to guess what those Vampire Bites really were. Thanks, Jennifer.
