Witch Way to the Treats?? Did you say Blog Candy??

Last week was so busy with design inspiration from the Stamper's Dream Team and the JustRite Design Team that we did not get a chance to appropriately celebrate the introductions of our two newest sets "Witch Way to the Treats" and "Autumn Blessings". These will be available to order on July 22nd - That is this Wednesday!!

For this fun card I used lots of glitter papers. I stamped my images using Memento Grape Jelly and them I colored the images using Copic Markers. I used a 1 3/8" circle punch (EK Success or SU) to punch out the images and I used the SU Flower Punch to Punch Out my mats. The card base is 6x6 and the very glittery black paper is from a Best Occasion Glitter Pack (which I found at Walmart). The Yellow & Green Glitter papers are from my DCWV Glitter Stack. As you can see from my card design I love all the images in the set and just couldn't decide which stamp to use. This card uses nine of the ten images that come in the set.
Today we are celebrating the soon to be released set Witch Way to the Treats which fits in our 1 3/16" stamper----with of course a Blog Candy Treat. Leave a comment on this post by Tuesday night July 21st at 12 am EST to win the 1 3/16" stamper and the Witch Way to the Treats Stamps. Simply leave us a comment on this post and tell us what your favorite costume was from childhood? Or what your favorite fall memory from childhood is? For every 200 comments we receive we will add another blog candy winner.

In case you were too busy (with kids home for Summer Break) to join us for the hop - here all in one location are the first projects designed using this set from some of our design team members.
Michelle Kovack just posted this fun Halloween card on her blog today as for the CPS 125 Sketch Challenge. JustRite is the sponsor this week...and of course there will be a great prize package that will be announced later this week on the CPS Blog. If you missed the blog post about CPS Sketch 125 click here to read the JustRite Post and to find all the links to the CPS Challenge.

Barb Schram designed this beautiful box to fill with one of her favorite childhood treats. Barb combined the Witch Way to the Treats set with the border from the What's Cookin Borders & Centers - which gave her project a fun vintage look.

Barb made these fun Witches Hats using Keebler Cookies and Chocolate Kisses with Witlon Orange Frosting!! For more pictures and all the details visit her blog post.

Lisa Somerville designed this Spooky Halloween Ensemble - I love all Lisa's fun ideas for this set.
Don't you just love how Lisa used the images to make candy wraps for Hershey Nugget Treats!!
Taylor designed these fun treat bags using the set!! They are just so darn cute.

Here is a close up of the images Taylor used on her treat bags!! Just think of all the possibilities with this set!! Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for your chance to win this fun set with the coordinating wooden stamper.

Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".

What a fun set! The DT did such a good job with all the great samples. My favorite Halloween dressup was a hobo. My friends took their brothers and dads oldest clothes and did our own "thing"...we had a ball. What a happy memory!

These images are adorable!! They'd look cute on treat bags or individual candies among other things. When we were kids there was no money for such things as costumes. We used dad's old clothes and became hobos or a sheet to be a ghost. Thanks for the chance to win this cute set.

Candy said...

Halloween has always been my very favorite holiday - even over Christmas. I've always loved making and wearing costumes. I remember when I was in third grade I made myself a hobo costume and walked to the library and participated in the parade. Next thing I knew I had won a fishing pole. I didn't even know I was in a contest! I hope I'm as lucky this time.

Donna said...

This set is so much fun! Your DT did a great job on the projects. I really want to remember those witch hat treats for this fall. I don't remember much about costumes when I was a kid, although I do remember having a nun outfit that I wore to play dress up sometimes. But the costume I liked the most was one we had my daughter dress in when she was young. We painted her face and hands green and covered with with a garbage bag and then covered a frisbee with aluminum foil and got that to stay on her head. She looked a great deal like Oscar the Grouch. She was so cute! I'd love to win this set. Thanks for the chance!

Heather D. said...

So stinkin' cute! I LOVE the witch hat cookies - so creative! I'll definitely have to remember that one for Halloween! That'll make an easy snack for my kids' classes in the fall!

My favorite costume was made for me by my aunt(may she rest in peace)when I was eight years old. She made me a gypsy costume out of black taffeta and tulle. She sewed colored sequins on the skirt and I carried a tambourine embellished with strands of colored ribbons. Boy, did I love that cosutme!

Just love these images. I have become a Halloween lover lately and these will be a great additioin to my Just Rite collection. My favorite custume was a Japenese Geisha - complete with wig -- got a lot of candu

Margaret said...

I just love this set - can't wait to order it! When I was small - for as long as I can' remember I was always a witch for Halloween - my mother made my costume and it came with the best witch hat and even a small broom!

Burchboo@maconcountyhealth.org said...

My favorite fall memory is walking home from highschool with a boy I had a mad crush on.
Most memorable costume was when I dressed as a Chrismas tree (lights and all) and wore red shoes with little wrapped presents on them). That one won a prize.
Thanks for this chance at some great blog candy. Joyce B

This set is super cute! I love all the samples!

Lori A. said...

How fun!! I really love this set. My favorite Halloween costume growing up was Wonder Woman. My made it for me and I thought it was so cool! :)

nina said...

Wonderful set and projects! My favourite costume is a sandwich board style Queen of Hearts my sister made for me. It was a life-sized card, drawn to look exactly like the elaborate Q of Hearts. It was great!

Kim H said...

WOW
I love this set!! My favorite holiday and the chance to win this set to use for all our treats!!

Eveline said...

Such a great addition to the collection. Love the work shown on this post. Halloween is not really celebrated here but I always decorate my house and I send away Halloween cards.

These are some of the best Halloween treat samples I've seen in a while!! I LOVE this new set and the inspiration provided by the Design Team. :)

Christine said...

I love all these new sets! I sure wish there were a store near me to see and buy them. Oh well, I guess that just means another e-order!

I seem to have blanked out Halloween costume memories but I was a hobo once. Hey, what can I say? It was the 60s!

Blessings,
Christine

lisa808 said...

I absolutely love this set. I was in the middle of embellishing two Halloween chipboard albums and put them aside until I could order this set.

I can't really remember a favorite childhood costume (too long ago I guess!). A favorite Fall memory though is driving up the Taconic State Parkway (NY) every year and looking at the beautiful foliage. We would always stop and buy apples and cider.

Thanks for the chance to win this set.

Fay said...

Wow! I just love this set!! My fave Halloween costume was when I dressed up as a princess. But the best part, of course, was the candy! When we got back home, we would sort our candies and get to work on eating them!! Thanks for the opportunity to win some great candy!

Jami {sgtStamper} said...

These are so fun and my head is already full of ideas for this set!!!

I always wore my fathers Army uniform for halloween... I know, not super creative, but we lived in Ohio and it was cold, and I could easily wear sweat pants and a sweat shirt underneath it and stay warm!

PaperCrafty said...

This is such a fun set!

My favorite costume was a Princess one that my Mom made for me when I was in 1st grade.

The Zoo Keeper said...

I love all the fantastic ideas from the DT
Great job everyone
My favorite Halloween costume from my childhood was when my mom costumes for my best friend who was a boy, our moms were great friends
we were made costumes of raggedy ann and raggedy andy we looked so cute together I think we were 4 that year

betty152 said...

I think I love Halloween more than Christmas. My favorite costume as a child was Casper the Friendly Ghost. This set is awesome!

Janet said...

My fav costume was anything that was home made. I really dislike store bought costumes and think the fun is in the creating.

Candisue said...

This is so stinking cute. My DD bd is around halloween and I cant wait till this set is released. SOO MANY TREATS. . . TOO MANY CALORIES!! Oh well, have to do it. Thanks so much for all the great stuff.

Paula said...

I LOVE both of these sets! What great blog candy. I know I always wanted my mom to buy one of those costumes from Target with the plastic mask like all my friends had. She never would and always made our costume, ugh! But now, looking back, my sister and I had the best costumes and my mom (now a grandma) has the coolest dress up box for our kids to play with. I guess being a poor country kid had some advantages. My mom rocks! I loved all our costumes, my hula one was my favorite but I had to wear a winter coat over it so it lost the effect we were going for!

Randi said...

Oh my gosh I just love all the things that were made with this set.I remember handing out candy to others at halloween I always enjoyed staying home and seeing everyone else's costumes.

akagreenhouse said...

This is a great set! I love all the projects. But I will say the cookies really caught my eye! But then food always does!!!

Tracey said...

This is a fabulous set and I love all of the samples by the DT!

Sharon said...

I just purchased my very first set of Just Rite Stampers today. I am excited to get started, I have been wanting to try these for quite sometime now. This new "Witch Way to the Treats" set is so super cute! I love Halloween and Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the colors and smells of fall and love, love, love apple cider! And btw DT, you guys created awsome projects with this set! Great work, as always.

dorism6220 said...

My mother used to sew our costumes - I followed suit with matching penguin costumes for a mother-daughter Girl Scout weekend.

thestampinglady said...

OMG--those witch hat cookies are so darn cute--what a very creative and great idea. This is such a fun set--thanks for the chance to win. dar

stephanie said...

Great projects with these stamps. I love them. My favorite Halloween costume was Bride of Frankenstein. After we were married a few years, friends had an amazing Halloween party - every adult dressed so I wore my wedding gown and did up my hair and make up as the Bride of Frankenstein. What fun we had.

SusanR said...

What fun Halloween treats! Love them all. My fav costume was from when I was about 8 yrs old and my mom made me a skeleton costume out of a white sheet. She drew all the bones on it and labeled them with their correct names! It was really cool! The best one I ever made was for my oldest son. We dressed him like a construction worker and made a bulldozer out of a cardboard box and hung it from his shoulders. He looked like he was driving it!

Anonymous said...

I LOVE this Halloween set! One of my most memorable costumes was when my siblings and I were dressed as the Pied Piper -the oldest - and the rest of us were mice. We won a prize for that one.

supermom said...

This set is so cute!

My most memorable and favorite Halloween costume was a California Raisin costume. My dad made it out of chicken wire and paper mache. It was so huge, but, so memorable and so fun.

Susan G said...

I enjoyed all the examples with this set on the blog hop. They were all so cute. I never did much Halloween stuff as a kid because we lived in the country with no close neighbors, but I enjoyed hay rides and weiner roasts as an older child.

funkycrafter said...

I love Halloween. The colors, the scary parts, the candy... This set is so much fun. Thank you for the chance to win.

Lorianna said...

Just the cutest little Halloween stuff, can't believe it's that time already!!

Never too early though

Hugs

Susan said...

Halloween is my fav holiday (next to Thanksgiving!) And those witches hat cookies are too too cute!

Barbara said...

This set is adorable! My favorite Autumn child hood memory is my mother taking me into town to buy the fabric to make winter clothes for me and my sister. The only store that sold fabric was a Ben Franklin. While we were there she let me buy a new box of crayons and a tin of 12 Prange water colors. I treasured my new crayons and paints , but I always dreamed one day she would buy the crayon box with 64 colors for me. That was the largest Crayola box at the time. But, she felt the 24 color box was plenty!

Elaine A said...

This is such a sweet set. I will have to think of other ways to use them because it would be a shame to only use them at Halloween!

Dianal said...

what great ideas and neat projects for halloween. Love these new sets. My best halloween was the year when my dad dressed in costume and went around the houses with us .... it was pretty neat because back then (in the 50's and early 60's) not too many fathers did that.

Susan said...

Such a fun set! Thanks for the chance to win one.

Pam Clay said...

Awesome projects! I love fall and my fav costume was when I dressed up as "WitchiPoo" from H.R. Puff-N-Stuff. Shows how old I am!!

Mer R. said...

BOO T FUL

Sandra said...

oh, a Sleeping Beauty costume - and the funny thing is - when I was little the costumes had those silly masks - the costume did not look half as good as princess costumes look today - but I loved it!
Thanks for the fun!
Sandra

Ronda C. said...

I can't remember any of my costumes, but I loved dressing my children up. My favorite was the year we dressed my then 10 year old daughter up as an old woman. That was a hoot!

Deepa M. said...

It used to snow before Halloween where I grew up, and if it didn't snow it was bitterly cold ... so I started dressing as the "abominable snowman" wearing this puffy green down coat, and requisite hat and mittens and scarf and such. It must have worked ... I remember getting a lot of candy! :)

Anonymous said...

i can't really remember the costume but i can certainly remember not wanting to come in until my pillow case was full of candy...there were very few halloween's that it wasn't full...

How cute! Love the whole set. I'd love to win, as I just got my first Just Rite stamper sets last week, cannot afford more just now! My favorite costume was as an angel (my true nature! - just kiddin). Thanks for offering blog candy!

Amanda said...

I am loving this set and all of the great ideas. My favorite childhood costume was a dalmation. It was homemade using a white sweat suit painted with black dots.

Maureen said...

My fave costume - I can't remember the name of the character, but I was dressed all in red with a big floppy hat. Nobody else recognized the character, but I loved it!

Qusie said...

Cute set and great job on the demos. My favorite Halloween memory is walking by the cemetary and having my big brother scare the the begeebees out of me!!

Tina said...

This is a really cute set. I would love to add it to my "just started" collection. My favorite childhood costume was Raggedy Ann. Thanks for the chance at this awesome candy!

Elsa L said...

This such a great set. I just love blog candy. My favorite costume was when I was dressed up as a 50's style gal. I had the poodle skirt and all.
Thanks for giving us the chance to win.

kathy s said...

Loved the blog hop. My favourite costume is(i still have it) a witch costume mum made- the skirt is black tafetta and so I could get more wear out of it she included arm holes in the side seams so I could wear it as a dress or top and a black velvet cape with yellow lining- there was a hat to match but that has been lost over the years. My children wore it and now my grandchildren will be playing with it as well

Marla said...

What a cute set, I love all the images. My favorite costume as a child was when my dad made my brother and I into werewolves. Our dog didn't care to much for the costume she came running down the stairs growling at us. My dad thought that was the best complement he could get.

Anonymous said...

Wow, I love Halloween decorations and Candy! My favorite costume was a Monk's outer robe with small bags of potato chips stuck all over the robe......alas I was a "Chip-Monk".

Betty M said...

My favourite costume was a scarecrow. But it was not the easiest one to wear. Your new sets are just fantastic.

isoscia said...

I just love this set! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays especially since it is also my first child's birthday. When she was a very little girl, we would take her to our favorite local bakery to pick out her Halloween themed birtday cake. She would get so excited about the little plastic jack-o-lanterns that were on top the cake! The costume I liked the best from my oen childhood was a long black skirt my mother made for me. It was trimmed with bright orange crepe paper ruffles which at the time I thought were quite elegant! Iris

Laraine R said...

A must have set!! Love all the samples the DT made!! Great job!! I also do not remember the costumes I wore as a child but Halloween is my fav holiday!!

cruisingcrafter said...

Love your work. My aunt and uncle lived out n the country and had a dirt road abou a mile long that lead to there house every year the would have the road decorated all the way to there house very scary you had to park your car and walk down the road to get to the party. It was so much fun but scary

bohnls said...

I just love the new Halloween stamps. My favorite fall memory is our neighbor Duane would rake the leaves in their backyard and all the neighbor kids went over and we jumped over and over in them and he would keep raking the leaves back into huge piles until we all got tired. Thank you for the chance at your candy.

Shari said...

This is a great set. I can not wait until it becomes available. I just love halloween and all that comes with the season. My favorite costume was one that my mom made for me. It was little bo beep, with the staff and all. It was great. Now I have boys and my costumes are not as creative and they are definately store bought.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Nettie said...

What a cute set and fabulous idea for cookie hats!

My favorite Halloween memories is my birthday is so close to Halloween my mother always threw me costume parties, complete with all the fun Halloween games.

Jan said...

I just love this set! Thanks for the chance to win. My memories are of years when we were a little bit older and dressed as hobos. I remember using the charcoal from the charcoal grill to "dirty" our faces and then breaking out the next day! What a mess!

luverlie said...

Halloween and Christmas. Can't decide which I like best. I usually dress up as a witch. Love the stamp set.

Marie B. said...

These are so cute! Thanks for offering a chance to win them! I don't really remember wearing anything in particular, but there is a pic of me wearing a Casper costume as a very young girl. My brother was Fred Flintstone! LOL

B Warner said...

My favorite costume was being a pirate. I love Halloween so I would love to win this set.

Rebecca Ednie said...

I remember raking leaves and jumping in the pile!!

Brenda said...

OMG these are the cutest stamps ever! I would love to win them, thank you for the chance.

Chriss Blagrave said...

Love this cute line, especially the "Gone Batty"!
Halloween was not so costume focused when I was growing up, but I must say that I made a lot of costume for my 2 children. They had lots of unique requests and one that I worked particularily hard on was the request from my daughter when she was 9 years old. She requested to be a blue jay. I made many blue felt feathers and she looked pretty cute!

Marilyn Hitterman said...

When I was about 12 years old I found an old "flapper" costume at my Grandma's. For you youngins' out there these were dresses, about knee length, with no waist but lots of long fringe. I wore a long string of beads around my neck and a beaded headband around my forehead. I always felt as though I was a part of that era..... Who knows?

gcase1 said...

Thanks for all of the cute ideas using this stamp. Great Halloween treats. My favorite costume was a witch. I had glasses and a big green nose, long fingernails and warts on my face!!!! Scary.

scrappintlc said...

Oh I cannot wait to get my hands on this set. Winning one would be awesome. Thank you for the chance to win a set.

Cheri Howard said...

What a fun set! My favorite costume when I was a kid was a clown. I like it so much I wore it two years in a row before I outgrew it! =D

jen said...

What a fun set!
I don't really remember costumes other than old clothes of my dad's & vaseline covered in pepper for whiskers- the ultimate hobo look! I can tell you my sweet 4 year old daughter's costume that I've loved the most was the sweetest sheep- but she'd say 'baaa' like she was possessed! Too funny!

Jennifer said...

Adorable! My favorite Halloween costume was Casper the ghost...the hard plastic mask and a sheet. LOVED it.

CharlieB said...

This is a great set. It's fun decorating for Halloween. My best costume was a spotted dog.

Sherri Wilson said...

I love this set - it is sooo cute! My favorite Halloween costume was (of course) a witch's costume. Thanks for all the great inspiration.

Marisa said...

I just love that Halloween set and your DT has done a wonderful job show casing it. Cute, cute, cute.

debb said...

Great set!!! My favorite Halloween costume was a bull fighter that my Mom and her friend made for me. And even better - my children wore it when they were small!

Rebecca said...

These stamps are soooo cute! My favorite Halloween costume has to be dressing like a cat, tail and all...thanks for the happy memory and chance to win.

Nancy said...

It's kind of hard to think about fall and Halloween when it's 108 outside... but this cute set and the samples you posted are sure cute!

ConnieB said...

What a fun set. My favorite fall memory as a kid, was collecting the pumkins from our garden patch out on the farm.Then loading them onto the pickup to take them into town to sell. We sold them to the local grocery stores for 10 cents each did not matter how big they were.

MrsETaylor said...

I absolutely love Halloween, so these would get a whole bunch of ink time. Great release.

Dawn said...

How fun everything looks. I can't wait to play with this new set.

My favorite costume growing up was a Space Cheerleader. I made it myself out of a big box, covered with tinfoil with some letters painted on it. My arms stuck out the sides and my head out the top of course ;)
I had red and white pompoms and a baton too. I thought it was pretty cool.. but on one else got it LOL.

Amy Johnson said...

Wow! I'm so impressed with everything the design team did! Great new set too! My favorite costume when I was a kid was my barbie costume.

My favorite Halloween costume was when I was about 3 and my 2 brothers and I were a unicorn, hand made by mom, and I was the back legs, what a hoot!

Kathy R said...

What adorable images ... and the DT did a great job with their creations. My favorite costume was the corn on the cob costume I made for my son many years ago when he was 1 1/2 ... he looked so cute. I would love to have this set to make special Halloween treats for the special kids in my life. Thanks for the chance to win.

Nanci said...

Cute...cute..cute set. One costume I remember was dressing up like raggedy ann and my hair was a mop head!

Mary said...

Love the new stamp sets!
and great ideas posted!
My wonderful grandmother made Chinese costumes for all seven of us children that we wore in the local summer parade then again for Halloween. She made the girls wigs with piles of yarn hair stacked on top. The boys had hats with a yarn pig tail down the back as they pulled the surrey with the youngest in the back. They were a riot (and itchy). Along with the kimono and cummerbund she made, we must have worn those for several Halloweens!
Thanks for the great memories and the wonderful prizes!

Jillisgram said...

Such a long time ago --- the only costume I can remember is a witch! Love the cute new stamps.

My favorite fall memories are of my sister and I raking maple leaves into a big pile, climbing the trees and then jumping in. We could do it all day. Such a simple and joyful pleasure--just like stamping. What a cute set of stamps you have here!

I love this set. Halloween is a fun holiday which I love. My favorite fall memory is going to the pumpkin patch and looking for the perfect pumpkin and then carving it. I love all that squishyness. Plus eating cider and donuts, fresh from the cider mill.
