Happy Halloween - Some Trick or Treat Blog Candy


Happy Halloween, no Tricks here, just CANDY! What would a Halloween posting be without a little Blog Candy"! First I'll share my project, then fill you in on how you can win your own copy The Technique Junkies Newsletter CD#7 (the pink CD)!

For my project I used the Coffin Box Die Cut from Creative Cuts and More. After assembling my coffin, I placed the lid on a piece of Stampin' Up! Night & Day Specialty paper, traced it, cut it out, trimmed it a bit, then adhere to the coffin top. The image is from Stampin' Up! From the Crypt done in the Split Negative Technique from a past issue of TJNL. I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Black on White then punched with the Word Window Punch, layered on a Black panel punched with the Modern Window Punch I adhered this under the Black Grosgrain tied around the coffin box.

So, how can you win your own copy of CD#7? Simply leave a comment on this blog post with with your Favorite Halloween Candy or Costume, by November 2nd, I'll post the Winner on November 3rd - Good Luck! Remember Blogger does not record your email addresses, so be sure to check back, or subscribe to my blog so you don't miss when I post the winner. I don't really have a favorite costume. Each year the boys got dressed up became my favorite costume, now that they are older, I miss those costumes! I asked my oldest who is attending a costume party later tonight what he was going as, his response "myself, Redneck Jim". So what is he wearing? A pair of flannel patched jeans, a cut off flannel shirt, cowboy hat and cowboy boots. As for my favorite Halloween candy, I love Candy Corn and Milky Ways!

Details:
Stamps - Stampin' Up! From the Crypt, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink - Versamark
Card Stock - Black, White
Other - Black EP, White EP, Big Shot, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Crop-a-Dile, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Vintage Brads, Sitcky Strip, Black & Night Specialty Paper, Black Grosgrain, Heat Gun, Coffin Die Cut Box from Creative Cuts and More

Have a great weekend!

Hi Lisa, My absolute fav Halloween candy has got to be candy corn!! My all time favorite costume was one I made for me as an adult...I made a huge oreo cookie...made both sides of the cookie and added shoulder straps so I could wear it. Then I dressed in white from head to toe and I was the creamy center of an Oreo...ahhhh those were the days!!! Warmly, Willow

Happy Halloween. My favorite treat is those little orange pumpkins, followed closely by candy corn and any of the Halloween peeps. Favorite costume--well it was me in the first grade I went as a little boy fishing--won lots of awards--my family was poor, everything was something from home and cost nothing. My mom warned me before I went not to expect any prizes cause we didn't have $ to buy a costume!

Love the coffin and the stamp is perfect for a negative/positive technique! My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn. Have you tasted the caramel apple flavored candy corn? It appears in our grocery store around Thanksgiving time.

Lisa, this is AWESOME! You are so dang clever! I think I have candy corn stuck in my teeth as I'm typing so that would be my favorite with Butterfingers being a close second. My favorite halloween costumes are those that are creative and usually not store purchased. Of course I'm lazy this year so my daughter's is store bought whereas Christopher is going to be a baseball player. Yankees, of course!

Joyce Spear said...

Happy Halloween! Great project to post today -- and I love the split negative technique!

Favorite candy? Candy corn, for sure. Different flavors, the original stuff mixed with peanuts... any variation thereof. I'd be buying out the store if I weren't diabetic, LOL!

Fingers crossed that the pink CD comes my way! *grin*

Lisa,
I always love your blog and beautiful cards! I am really in to anything dark chocolate. In fact, our little dog managed to get into a tin that I had some small dove choc. in, and he delivered one to my daughter and one to me. They were still wrapped, so we ate them! Both he and my daughter are going as zebras tonight at a party she is giving. I would love to win!!
God bless,

Aloha Lisa,

My favorite Halloween candy is the candy corn and those little orange pumpkins...all sugar I know.

Your blog is a daily stop for me to see what beautiful project you have made and find out how life is going for you and your family. :-)

Hi Lisa! My favorite candy is Twizzlers licorice. Um, my favorite costume was a box decorated to look like dice! I would love to win that pink cd from Technique Junkies. Your project is awesome!

I love anything with chocolate so it would be hard to narrow down my favorite. Right now I am enjoying Dove's milk chocolate but I can just as well love a Twix or Heath or anything else with choclate. My favorite costume has to be the year I went as a beatnik (yes I am showing my age). This had to be in the late 50's because I remember my little sister going with me. We got to go over to my aunt's house and trick or treat from there. I still remember what a ball I had. The pic is Roscoe going as a hunter.

This is a hard one- I love Chocolate (although I have no appetite for it lately), but only get candy corn once a year...... We went to a party dressed as a pair of blur Jeans- we wore all blue jeans (top and jeans), and I wore a name tag jean, he wore a name tag Gene.......We had a great time! I love your project- what a neat Split Double project.........
Have a great Halloween!

Lee said...

Oh, how I love Halloween so I can stock up on the marked down candy the day after! Just about anything chocolate for me, but 100 Grands are my favs (next to Ghiradelli, but they count in my Christmas fav!). I must have candy corn, but the Indian corn mix is the best.

My favorite costume was about 10 years ago when I was working in the lingerie department at Mervyn's. I made my own costume & went as a Playtex bra box. I took a sheet & drew & painted everything from the real box. A sharpie pen made the writing easier to do. I squared off my shoulders with foam core & viola', my costume was born. Needless to say, I won the most original contest hands down!

My absolute favorite treat for Halloween is pumpkin seeds. My favorite kids custome has to be the NASA astronaunt outfit my son wore this year. My favorite adult custome . . . well . . .I just saw pics from a blogger who dressed up as the evil witch on the Wizard of Oz and dress her dogs as her flying monkeys. It was just too cute!

Lynn Stevens said...

He was the back end of course! My favorite candy just about anything chocolate , but Peanut butter cups are high on my list right now!

What great blog candy, Lisa! My favorite costume is anything that involves dressing in theme with one of the kids. I think my most fav was the year I dressed Drew as a frog prince and I went as the princess. My favorite Halloween candy is Tootsie Rolls, especially the fruity ones!

Sue4stampin said...

My favorite candy is anything dark chocolate. My favorite costume would have to be the Baby Bop costume I made for my granddaughter many years ago. Now I'm saving it for great-grandchildren.

A favourite candy!!?? Hmmmm... A taffy apple? Maybe.

Your project is beautifully done! Thanks so much for sharing!

My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn with the chocolate. I like to eat it one color at a time. It just tastes so much better that way!

Hi Lisa! As always, your projects are stunning. My favorite Halloween costume was when I wanted to go as a hobo. I was all ready, except for the finishing touch -- the stub of a smoked cigar, which my father was going to provide. Unfortunately, he was held up at work, so I told my mom that I would smoke it (the vision of the costume just wasn't complete without that cigar stub!). After some debate, she let me smoke it, afraid that I would get sick -- I didn't and my costume was a hit. My favorite Halloween costume memory, though, was when my brother was 5 or 6 years old and went as a lady -- he wore a gold lame dress, frosted wig, Dolly Parton sized . . . and an awesome make-up job! He was the hit of the neighborhood that year. As for my favorite Halloween candy -- also my favorite anytime candy -- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - mmmmmmmmmm. I have a recipe to make something very similar in a pan, and have been contemplating doing that for a week now (hoping that the urge will subside -- LOL!). Thank you for your blog candy! ---Carol
