Day 2 Giveaway: Halloween

Filed under Cat's Away... 2010, Giveaways, Sale

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. But you can try searching on the same names (as links below) on the new site.

Today’s Giveaway is all about Halloween! It’s kinda always Halloween around here and there were lots of things in stock to choose from. Orange fibers & stickers; purple ribbons & more fibers; black blank books; and skulls, skeletons, pumpkins, a mask, bugs & dripping blood.

Note: all the indented items are included in the Giveaway. There are some additional (related) things just put on sale that are not in the Giveaway (down at the bottom of this page).

Also note: there will be 1 runner-up for today’s Giveaway. The 3 items in the runner-up’s package are shown at the bottom of this post.

New & On Sale
(and included in the Giveaway)

Purple Fiber Set
New & on Sale! 10 yards of beautiful fibers! Soft and furry… includes chenilles, fringes and eyelash (in a violet to lavender to eggplant mix).

1-1/2″ Sheer Iridescent Ribbon
New & on Sale! Depending on the light, it’s rusty-brown/orange to purple, with a purple edge stitch. Soft enough to scrunch up and pull through jump rings or punched-out holes (to bind a book).

1-1/2″ Opaque Iridescent Ribbon
New & on Sale! Gorgeous ribbon. Soft and richly colored. Similar to the 1-1/2″ Sheer Iridescent Ribbon but more of a rayon/silky feel (and, obviously, less sheer).

Not New to the Site, But Newly On Sale!
(and included in the Giveaway)

Halloween Fiber Set
28 yards of fibers! 8 yards each of three different fibers plus 2 yards of black chenille and 2 yards of orange rayon fringe.

Black Envelope Album
Nicely designed. Six black 4″ x 9″ envelopes, bound into a book (each envelope has a flap, plus the flap on the outer envelope (“cover”) has a longer flap and a string & button closure).

Halloween Treats Stickers
“Die-cut stickers including cats and bats and jack-o-lanterns, and the letters to spell “Happy Halloween” (and two full alphabets). 6 x 12″ sheet.

Vampire Invitations
Cool invitations, but I can also imagine using portions in other Halloween collages. The die-cut envelope (printed on the inside with handwriting and blood drops) wraps around the invitation (and then seals with a sticker or a clear seal). Each set includes:
– Six invitations – Six envelopes
– Six stickers (blood drops)
– 12 clear seals

Hocus Pocus Clear Cards
6 heavy acetate cards (with rounded corners), printed with metallic inks. And they’re exactly twice the size of an ATC, so just one would make great front and back covers for a little ATC booklet.

Skeleton at Card Table Rubber Stamp
Like a carnival sideshow gambling table. 1-5/8″ x 2″

Iron-On Skull Patch
Embroidered. Approx 2″ x 3″.

Sold out but included in the Giveaway
(so please don’t email me asking how to buy them)

Vampire Die Cut Border Stickers Die-cut, self-adhesive cardstock borders with thermographic printing (so some of the printing is slightly raised and more shiny that the background and than the remaining ink). The border are a bit over 11″ wide; 4 each of 5 designs. Just peel off the backing paper and stick onto your project. Bugs, ornaments, ‘BEWARE’ labels and dripping blood.

Gessoed Carnival Mask
Plastic mask, already prepped for painting. Similar to the one used by Design Team Member Barbe Saint John (also using an image from the Arlecchina Collage Sheet and some Gold Metallic Gimp).

Related Sale Items
(not included in the Giveaway)

Twilight Fabric Patches:
Three printed muslin patches. Approx. 3-1/2 x 5″ each.

Posada Guitar Rubber Stamp:
2″ x 2-1/4″

Posada Woman in Hat Rubber Stamp
2-1/4″ x 1-5/8″. Another Jose Guadalupe Posada image is on the Celestial page.

Coffin Shaped Treat Boxes
Heavy cardstock, die cut and scored for easy assembling: printed red on the inside and an ornate design in white on the black outside.

Runner-Up’s Package

Slightly different than the Giveaway (regarding the black book on offer). Two of the items in the runner’s up package are the same (the Halloween Fiber Set and a Gessoed Carnival Mask) but the black book is one of the:

Black Keepsake Book
On Sale! Spiral-bound book with heavy, black chipboard front and back covers and 25 blank pages. 6-1/2 x 4/1/2″

Note: Most of the sale links from this page go to a page showing short-term sale items in conjunction with this Giveaway.

Here’s the recap of the Giveaway Rules. And check yesterday’s post for some “Vintage Junk” items that are still on sale.

So leave me a comment and tell your friends.
