I don't send many cards at Halloween. At the top of my list are my son and my young niece and nephew. But I love the Halloween Night Designer Series Paper and Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp Set. With only a few on my card list, I had to challenge myself to do something new to showcase these cute products.
The crisp contrast of the Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black carries a simple statement. I really liked the minimalism here and made me think of apothecary jars and Steampunk industrialism. I was happily surprised to see how well the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon works with the Pumpkin Pie paper!
Next, I decided to be a little more playful. I made a skeleton and mummy from the Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp Set and punched them out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I love how you can customize these by stamping them in black and coloring them with Stampin' Write Makers. I also added some extra sparkle to the skeleton by using the Clear wink of Stella Glitter Pen.
The Hubs then asked if I'd make one for Thanksgiving. This one took a little more thought. I wanted to be more somber, showcasing the lovely fall colors found in the Petals and Paisleys Designer Series Paper. I liked the muted Night of Navy as a background. I used the Thoughtful Branches thinlets to make the glimmery pumpkin, leafless tree, and fall leaves. Glimmer paper gives you all the bling of glitter without the mess!
I made all 3 of the banners in one day. Using the Banners, Lots of Labels, and Layering Squares and Circles Framelits really saves A LOT of time. And I love that I got to use my Large Letters Framelits, too!
The ladies at my two workshops this weekend *loved* them! So much so, I've decided to offer the two HALLOWEEN banners as a FREE September "Class To Go". I will send you all the pre-cut materials you need to complete the two HALLOWEEN banners, along with a detailed PDF instruction sheet.
