Stampin Friends Halloween Blog Hop




Hello and welcome to the October Stampin Friends Blog Hop!  If you've been hopping already you should have landed here from Elizabeth's awesome blog!  If you missed it, make sure you click Previous to go back to check it out!!


As you probably know by now, this month's theme is Halloween!  How fun is that!  We are blessed to have two fabulous guest hoppers this month that you will definitely want to check out along the way:


If you've followed my blog, you'll know that I've been on an Owl kick lately.  Today's card is no different.. Here's my Halloween card...



I started with an A2 Basic Black card base.  My second layer was Pumpkin Pie Cardstock that was stamped tone-on-tone with the Watercolor Wash background stamp.  I used my Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the "moon".  Whisper 'White cardstock was sponged with Daffodil Delight Ink and some highlights of Pumpkin Pie ink to make my moon.  I then taped it behind the cut out and adhered the layer to the Basic Black cardbase.  I added a tree limb by punching out a black tree with the Tree Builder Punch.  I trimmed off the upper branch and then glued it to the left side of my card.  I added a Black Spiderweb Doily and my sentiment from an older set "Mingle all the Way" that was stamped on Whisper White and backed with a layer of Basic Black Cardstock.   My owl was cut out using The "Boo to You" framelits on Basic Black cardstock.  The owl's eyes were punched out with the Owl Builder Punch.  I handcut a little beak with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  
Here's a little closer view.

In keeping with the "Owl Theme" I made an Owl Treat Holder Fry Box


The owl's head was cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits.  I used a smaller Circle Punch to punch into the top of his head.  The white part of the eyes was Whisper White cardstock punched with the 1" circle punch.  The black of the eyes was punched form the Owl Builder Punch.  The front of the fry box was covered with Black and White Happy Haunting Washi Tape.  The wings were Circle Scallops that were cut and glued to the side of the fry box and then folded into the Owl's body.  I realize it's a little hard to see with the "Boo" tag but after having him all made I really thought he needed a tag.  I punched out a Note Tag and then cut out the "Boo" in Black Glimmer Paper from the "Boo To You" Framelits.  I added some Orange Ribbon and tied it with Basic Black twine.  I think he turned out really cute, maybe not scary but definitely cute!



I hope you've enjoyed my Halloween card and treat holder and are ready to click the next button to continue on to my good friend, Lisa Altman's blog!

  13. I love the Boo to You Framelits and have used them a lot ~ a bundle that has paid for itself for sure. I haven't used it without the stamp yet - didn't think about it so I do like the idea - it looks good. The Spider Web always dresses up a project so I like it on the card. Love how you used Owl Punch Art on the Fry Box so it would match your Owl Card. Clever. They look good. Thanks for sharing the ideas.
