Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Today I’d like to share with you some fun Halloween projects that I have done in the past and a cute new project Stampin’ Up! has in our Holiday catalog.
With Halloween fast approaching, I thought today’s post would be fun. Halloween is the second most celebrated holiday … well at least in the “decorations”! I think it’s because we all get to be kids again … it’s so much fun and you don’t have the stresses the seem to come along with Christmas.
So, my first little project is “Frankenstein” … we made him at a downline retreat. “Downline” are the people who have joined Stampin’ Up! under me. I used several punched scalloped circles and layered them together to create the spider. If you would like to know more… post your comment and I’ll share the tutorial.
Not much stampin’ on this one, but he is so cute and the kids used him for their “trick or treat” bucket! You can also create mummmies, and pumpkins in the same fashion.
My next project share is this cute little gum packet … what a fun surprise for when you give this to your co-workers, friends or your favorite teacher. It’s easy! Just wrap your gum packet with the desired color cardstock and secure in the back. To create the front stamped panel: cut your cardstock slightly smaller than the front of the package. A little measuring is required, but still so easy to do. Then just stamp any images you want to create a fun gift.
This cute card was made by my sister and downline member Eileen. We did a Halloween swap for one of our meetings… it was a hit! She began by creating a template for the coffin, put the top edge to the “fold” on your cardstock and cut, this will give you a coffin that opens. The face was created with circle punches. To create the hair simply use the scallop punch to punch out the hair line on a black circle. The mouth is done with punching a partial piece out of the initial circle and then cutting it in two pieces … spacing the mouth gives you the appearance of teeth! Cool … right!
And for my final project share …. this beautiful Halloween banner! Stampin’ Up! has put together a kit … yes, a kit, so you can create this hand made project in no time at all. You will need the “Build a Banner Kit” (133507) which also works with the Christmas banner, and the “Halloween Banner Accessory Kit (132698). How cool is that!
