Swirly Squiggles Pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper

Swirly Scribbles Pumpkin

Hi Everyone! Swirly Squiggles Thinlits Die was top of my list when the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Catalog came out. BUT I hadn't dreamed of the other shapes we are all creating. This card will be used in my local card class next week. They can sub out the sentiment but I wanted to show an "adult" Halloween card option!

How good is the PUMPKIN PIE GLIMMER Paper for Fall? So good! Great for Halloween and Fall bling on our cards and projects. PLUS image if your school colors had orange in it...Awesome!

The leaves are from last month's promotion Thoughtful Branches. Stampin' UP! still has some bundles available but now they are while supplies last.

Spider Web Doilies Mod Podged on Mason Jars & Other Ideas

  Spider Web Doilies

Hi Everyone! Since the Spider Web Dollies have 24 pieces in the pack, you might have a few left overs after your card making. Try decorating mason jars, clear glass vases and more! Grab your Mod Podge and apply.

For the gray mason jars - I first spray painted the jars.

  • Apply a base coat area of Mod Podge.
  • Add the Spider Web Doily.
  • Apply Mod Podge over top - TIP - I found pouncing the Podge was best so the doilies won't tear.

The Spider Web Doilies are SUPER CUTE to use as coasters for Halloween party drinks. It's the little touches that set the party mood!

DSCN5627

DSCN5628I applied a Spider Web Doily on a clear mason jar then filled with candy. The picture is a little dark but I like how the candy is the background color through the web!

DSCN5634

 I grouped the jars with my Witching Décor Kit. NOTE! The kit quantity is getting limited so if you like this project, you may wish to order soon!

Halloween Family Fun Day

 

DSCN4743Hi Everyone! Sorry I've been MIA this month. My schedule should open up for getting back to all of you :) Sunday, family and friends came over for a Halloween Family Fun Day! We made tulle witches' skirts and lions' mane as well as a ghost foot print.

For the mane and the skirt - take ~ 6-8" tulle strips and tie in knots around an elastic ban. I'm no sewer and velcro closures worked great. Tip: It will take you more tulle than you think. The more tulle the fuller the mane and skirt.

DSCN4734 DSCN4735Tulle Tip #2 - the adults pretty much made. It's a little too redundant for the kids and you need to tie lots of knots. The youth probable could do on own but we had too many distractions :)

Project #2- Pinterest inspired Smell My Feet

DSCN4732Take white craft paint and paint the bottoms of feet. Step unto Basic Black cardstock. The heels are the ghost heads Add the phrase Trick or Treat Smell My Feet. We used 1/2" circle punch to make ghost eyes.Use same punch to punch holes at top and add ribbon to hang your creations.

Tip! The children sat on chairs while the adults painted their feet. Place the cardstock on the floor and have the kids stand dirctly up on the cardstock (don't move feet) and sit back down.
DSCN4726
The little ones are either my great nephews or team members' children. My nephew (the dad) came (great to have a man craft!) and my niece from college surprised me by showing up too! All was getting into the spirit of the day. And I must get my silliness from my mamma as she rocked the funky witch look with my props!

So I hope all left our day with a set of new memories!

Happy Crafting!~ Dee
