HALLOWEEN PROJECT 5


HALLOWEEN








OK  so here is my banner, I had so much fun and made a big mess but that's the fun of crafting right?
 I used Echo Park Ghost Town mini theme kit stickers for the cat,spider,pumpkin and stars. I also had to put my sequin bats on and threaded some more of the twine on  to hang my banner in my room. The paper is from a grab bag and I used Sizzix curved banners die to cut out the layers. The eyes on the O's is from my stash. I used an a large alphabet stamp set by Papermania for the word BOO!
 so another week has flown by I hope you all had some time to craft, I would love to see your Halloween projects please leave the name of your Blog in the comments so I can swing by and say HI!
Thanks for popping by
have a crafty weekend!

HALLOWEEN PROJECT 4

            
           HALLOWEEN


I love this boo bag! 
I used my new Paper Smooches Fallin for you stamps and matching dies [I LOVE THEM!]
I coloured them with Spectrum Noir pens.
The boo I wrote myself on a speech bubble die cut. The paper is from a grab bag I brought from my local craft shop.


Here's Frankie with a badge for you!
My son has to have one for school so I made one by forming a rosette out of American crafts Pumpkin Patch paper and  made the sentiment on my pc and punching it out with  a 1 1/2 inch circle punch, the silver image is a spider which I found on a old bumble bee set? embossed with silver embossing powder.

I'm off to make a banner
Happy crafting

ANOTHER CARD


Hi Everyone
I put this commissioned card on facebook last week and it got a great response so here it is on the blog hopefully my posts have published this week?
I love heartfelt creations their Arianna Blooms collection is a must, I made the flowers using the stamp and die sets embossed onto vellum with gold embossing powder, the only problem i had  was when shaping the flowers the embossing started to crack and flake off not too much but it made a right mess [not good for the OCD!]
The card stock is Anne Marie Designs 2 sided gold pearl and the foiled is Hunkydory Christmas flakes from last year.The pearls are from Scrapberry @ oyster stamps, ribbon and gold heart charm are from my stash.
The wooden love word is by Dovecraft I got mine from The Glitterpot, I cut my pc generated sentiment from spellbinders grand labels 4.
So I will crafting again this weekend and will be showing my projects to you next week starting to think of Halloween so maybe something spooky?
Thanks for popping by
Happy Crafting & have a fabulous weekend!
