Thank you so much for joining us for the October Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on the Fall season. It’s the time of year when fireplaces start crackling with warmth and we dig out our sweaters. This month’s blog hop will showcase many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available to make Autumn themed creations. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own. I know that for me Autumn means lots of things and having children at home still means that Halloween is going to take precedence over the beautiful fall leaves changing, so I chose to do Halloween for my projects. Please remember to follow the links below to enjoy ALL the creations that the members of this blog have made for you to be inspired.
This is a card I made for a Halloween Swap for Convention this summer. I had so much fun doing it. The base of the card is made from Whisper White, Basic Black, and Summer Starfruit, in which I ran that layer through the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder and added a strip of Witches' Brew DSP and cut the scallop with the Tasteful Trim die, and wrapped some 1/8" Black Taffeta Ribbon around it. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Halloween Bash and punched it out using the Ticket Duo Punch and bumping it up with Dimensionals. Last Christmas we used the same "feet" for Elf shoes. The feet are simply a Top Note cut into fourths(you only use two pieces for the feet/shoes) and then using two different sizes of circle punches, punching out to make the shoe hole and the pointy tips. For my witches legs I just cut scraps of Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie and glued them down kind of catty whompus, so as not to match. I punched out the flowers on the shoes from the Itty Bitty flower punch and colored some Basic Rhinestones with a orange Sharpie marker. For the broom, I colored a lollipop stick with Black Sharpie marker and simply wrapped a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock around it and cut snips into it.
