Be sure to read this entire post … there is a prize to be won by one lucky blog hopper!!!! The rules are below. I LOVE prizes!
This month we have two amazing Guest Hoppers joining us. Be sure to visit them. You will be glad you did.
Well, here are my projects. Everything I used is current Stampin’ Up! product. (Well … except for the little wooden spool for the pumpkin’s stem!)The card has super simple layout that can be reproduced for every occasion. The adorable 3-D pumpkin tutorial was just featured a week or so ago on Splitcoast Stampers.
The little pumpkin and the witch’s hat are stamped from the September Paper Pumpkin Wickedly Sweet Treat stamp set (not listed in the supply list at the end of this post). The tiny background spiders are from A Little Something and the rest is stamped from Cheer All Year. A bit of ribbon hides the cut edge of the doily. A tiny knot of ribbon finishes it off.
Don’t you just love the super cute Spider Web Doilies? They add a lot of fun to a project. I like to carry over an element from the front of the card to the inside. The spider is suspended from the web with the straight line image from the Paper Pumpkin kit.
My 3-D project was something I have wanted to make for a few years and just never got around to it … so easy!!! The 6 strips of Happy Haunting DSP are cut 1″ x 11″ to make the body of the pumpkin. I sponged the edges of the leaves and spool (I found the spool in my craft stash). I used a scrap from the Pretty Petals paper stack to cover the spool. I just cut a sliver of Old Olive and curled it around a skewer for the tendrils. A bit of hot glue, some liquid Tombow glue, fast fuse adhesive and a fine tip glue pen hold it together. Use what works for you!
Whoa!! Wait a minute!! There is a prize!!! You will be entered to win a $25 Stampin’ Up! gift certificate (redeemable only through Elizabeth Thatcher) if you comment on EVERYONE’s blog post in this hop. After you comment on all 13 blogs, just email Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org with a list everyone’s favorite stamp set before midnight on Sunday October 18th.
