Halloween Night Bags

My featured stamp set today is the same as yesterday.  I don't normally get big into Halloween but I do enjoy October "cute" things.  The Halloween Suite caught my eye right away in the catalog.  It's got coordinating designer paper, enamel dots, bakers twine, stamp set and more!  I love the color theme of Stampin' Up Halloween this year! (Pages 50-51 in your new Holiday catalog)

Featured Stamp Set: Halloween Scares

I just started using these Glassine bags these past few months and I just love them!  They are great for cards, gift cards or goodies!  Let's take a closer look at these two!

I started with my bag and stamped the dots on the bottom from Halloween Scares with Pumpkin Pie Ink.  Normally I would heat emboss using Versamark first, but I knew the ink wouldn't sink into the bag due to the "glass" material that makes it shimmer.  So I stamped with my everyday Stampin' Up ink pad and immediately applied my clear embossing powder, fired up my heat gun and voila!  

I knew I was adding bats next and they should be black so I used my Stazon Black Ink for the bats.  Next, I added the bat Washi tape from the Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape.  Fill it with a treat and you're all set!

This one I love!  I think I would love it even more if I took away the small speckles of back and reworked my splatters a little bit.  I used my Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set for the background splatter.  Now this took time and patience.  I had to ink, stamp, powder rather quickly... And for each color separately.  I did find that I could heat them all at the same time, but then you have to be careful so you don't get powder on your stamp.  I was worried that the powder might not stick if I didn't shake it on right away because I was again not using Versamark due to the type of bag.  One color at a time put your splatters on the bag and the 1 3/4 inch circle of whisper white.  I used the colors from the Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape (Perfect Plum, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie). 

After the heat embossing, I added the black splatter stripes using Stazon Black.  I added a cute little pumpkin to my whisper white circle and attached it to a 2 inch circle of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Finished it off with Washi tape from the Hallween Night Washi.  I did attach my circle using a dimensional which allowed the circle to hold the bag shut when folded over.
