Halloween Candy Jar Card – Peek Out Stamp Window

Halloween, at least here in the United States, means candy. Kids go door-to-door yelling “trick-or-treat!” and their bags get filled with candy. I made a Halloween Candy Jar Card with a Peek Out Stamp Window that reminded me of this fun tradition.

Many of you will recognize this candy jar stamp set as one that has recently been retired (sorry!) from Stampin’ Up.

Sweetest Thing wasn’t specifically a halloween set, but one with more birthday sentiments. I am using it to highlight how when you buy a new set, you definitely CAN use it over and over again!

When I want a new set, I try to envision first how it could be used for the major holidays. At the bottom of this post, you’ll see ideas for this set for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day. So of course Halloween needed a card with this candy set! So I created one while using the Peek-Out Stamp Window Technique

See below for how I created this Halloween card with the shiny window candy jar layer!


Steps to Create this Halloween Candy Jar Card:

Cut and fold your card base from black cardstock.

Next, from your favorite halloween-y designer series paper, cut your card front at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Add a 4″ x 1″ strip of glitter paper to the left side.

Technique: Peek-out Stamp Window:

Create the window to the candy jar. Use the apothecary jar die to cut the window on the left side of the halloween designer series paper. Use glue dots to adhere a 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ square of window sheet behind the window.

On a 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ square of whisper white card stock, stamp the apothecary jar in black ink. Stamp the candies and color in with matching markers. Add glue dots to the FRONT of the white pieces. Then line up the jar within the die cut and press it down to adhere it.

Finish your card with a banner cut from gorgeous grape and emboss with white embossing powder.
