Fang-tastic Vampire Blood - Hand Sanitizer box

Here is my fifth and final hand sanitizer box. The little vampire in Fang-tastic was perfect for the bottle of Vampire Blood. I also used the new Bat punch on the inside with embossing powder on him to make him shiny. (I was to impatient to wait for my Crystal Lacquer to dry). I used the Aqua Painter, and by squeezing the lid on my classic ink pad, I was able to use the ink in the lid to water color my Vampire and little bats. I hope you enjoyed my little collection on hand sanitizers as much as I enjoyed making them.  I will be making some fall projects later this week and will get them posted as soon as I can. Until then, happy stampin'.

All supplies Stamin' Up! unless noted
Stamps: Fang-tastic
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock, Neutrals (black) Designer Series Paper collection

Spider Web Textured Impressions folder - hand sanitizer
This hand sanitizer box is interactive. The little spider on the front is attached to hemp twine (dyed black) so it dangles. I think the textured web on the front and the web wheel on the inside go together and make this little box really cool. The Raven lace also adds a lot to the theme of the box. The sentiment in the House of Haunts was also perfect for this project because of the little spiders included. This is one of my favorites.
At my September stamp camps you get to choose which one of the five hand sanitizer boxes you want to make. The bottle of hand sanitizer is included. This is a perfect gift for your little goblins, especially if you do not want to give out candy. (What!, No candy, tell me it's not true!) Sorry, I guess you can tell that I am a candy (sugar) lover. Yes, you can keep your chocolate, just give me gummies, licorice, or any other sugary treat and I am a happy stamper. Well enough about me, here is what you need to make this fun little box.

Fang-tastic witch with Candy Corn hand sanitizer

When I saw the stamp in Fang-tastic that said "Witch way is the candy?" I knew I just had to make a Candy Corn hand sanitizer box with the little witch on it. I really love the Wicked Fun Designer Series paper (on the inside), the black polka dots are fuzzy.

I am having a lot of fun with these little hand sanitizers. Thank goodness there is only five of them, or I just might spend the rest on my life working on them. (just kidding!) Actually, these are perfect little Halloween treats for me, because I have three grand kids in California, and I am in South Carolina. Since chocolate doesn't mail very well, these will be the perfect little treats to send them (with money for chocolate, of course!) I only have one more box to post tonight. Tomorrow I will make and post the final box. I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am.

Dark and Dreary with Zombie Squad hand sanitizer

Here is another hand sanitizer holder. This one is called Zombie Squad so I decided to use the Dark and Dreary make is kinda dark and dreary looking using just Basic Black and Basic Gray.

Spiderman Spider Treats - Mini Lunch Sacks
Isn't this awesome. I saw a Spiderman card and favor box that Tami White did, and just had to make a Spiderman on the Mini Lunch Sacks for those that come to the September Stamp camp and do not want Halloween projects. So you will get your choice of the Vampire, Witch or Spiderman for your treat sack. Spiderman is made with our new Spider Web Textured Impressions Folder and the Scallop Oval Frame Die. This is so fun and easy to make and I think the Web standard wheel added a great touch to the bag. I opted to leave off the lace trim that I put on the Vampire and Witch bag. I used the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to write "Spider Treats" on the Whisper White cardstock punched out with the Modern Label Punch.

Dark and Dreary Halloween with bling

I quess you could say I got carried away with the glitter on this card, but I think it looks pretty cool. My grandson said it looked cool, so it must be cool!

I really like the Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the spider web. We have spiders here in South Carolina that webs sparkle (maybe not quite as much as mine, but they do sparkle). I used sticky strip on all around a piece of cardstock cut 1/2" bigger than my happy halloween element and added Black Chunky Essentials Stampin' Glitter. I wheeled the Midnight Musings jumbo wheel in VersaMark, then used Heat and Stick powder to attach my Chocolate Fine Supernova Stampin' glitter (It look more like copper, than chocolate on the Pumpkin Pie cardstock). I embossed both the happy halloween and the spider elements. I used the Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the body of the spider and added the Black Chucky Essentials Stmapin' Glitter. I used my brayer and classic ink refills to add the color to the happy halloween element.
