Creating Halloween Decor
by Laura Fulcher

IMG_3757

Greetings friends. I thought now would be a good time to share a 3-D Halloween ornament with you for those of you who enjoy making their own holiday decorations. My design can either be hung like an ornament, or I have it sitting up on my desk for decoration.

To make the display, I used a combination of new release die cuts as well as older dies. I encourage you to look at the various dome layer dies because there are so many that can be used for Christmas or winter as well as Halloween and fall.

The highlight of the display is the new Fancy Gate Globe die that I used in the front. I really wanted it to be the star of the show and open up to reveal an vignette in the back. I cut the gate out of black mirror paper so that it really shines and looks different from the plain black cardstock I used in the back of the card.

I also used a couple of the new ghost dies in the gates so that they added a spooky front to the card.

When you open up the gates, this is what you see:

IMG_3760

I added some spooky trees in dark grey as well as a hill and the brand new Creepy Cabin die. I chose a bright orange for the house so that it would really pop, but I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the top to give it an aged look.

To finish the display, I added some Halloween twine to the top.

Here is another view of the layers:

Flying Witch with Creepy Cabin
by Angie Cimbalo

AngiesignatureNEW
Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a Halloween card featuring some of the newly released fall dies.  The new dies I used are:
 
1)  Flying Witch 94624
2)  Creepy Cabin 94634
3)  Boo to You Posh Script 94587
 
Here's a close up look at my card:
 
AngiesignatureNEW
To make my card I cut the witch and the cabin from both white card and glossy black card stock. This is very thick and nice black glossy card stock released earlier by Memory Box and it's such high quality!  
 
In the picture below you can see both cabin cuts.  The one of the left was cut right out of white card and left alone.  The black one was trimmed out of the opening so I could layer it on top of the white one with liquid glue.  For the background behind the cabin inside the opening, I ink blended a piece of white card with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the top half, and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide on the bottom half.
 
Next I took the smaller die from the Circle Basics 30087 set from white card that I had ink blended with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink.  I glued that to the background for my night moon in the sky.
 
Below you can see me working on the cabins and the ink blending.
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
After gluing the black cabin over the white one, I cut the whole panel with a Stitched Rectangle Layers die 30009, and then used the same die and then next size smaller to create a glossy black stitched frame for my image.  I mounted that whole panel on foam tape in the bottom right corner.
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
Next I glued the white and black witches together slightly offset and then added them to the card.  I had to use foam tape on the left side since the top of the broom, her arm and leg are on the raised rectangle panel.  This made it all even.  I did the same thing with the sentiment, layered, raised up the part not on the rectangle with foam tape to make if all level on the card.
 
Lastly I added both Autumn Fairy Crystals and Autumn Fairy Jewels to the card.  Memory Box has lots and lots of gems, jewels and crystals to choose from including clear ones.  The are fall colors, winter colors, Christmas colors and clear ones that look like water droplets and the best part is the come in different sizes.  Here's on last look at my card:
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
I had so much fun making this card.  I like to make Halloween cards for my grandkids, even though some are getting older, it's always fun to receive a card in the mail no matter how old you are!
 
Be sure to check out the newest Memory Box release goodies HERE.  There are lots of spooky and fun dies to help you create amazing cards!  Thanks so much for stopping by and see you next time.

Boo to You Tags for Halloween Goodie Bags
by Anne Thompson

Did you see Jean's post yesterday?  I hadn't looked at hers until after I had made these tags for my post today.

IMG_3855-ink

We both used these same three dies:

  •  WILD SPIRAL 94629
  • GHOSTS IN THE FOREST 94622
  • BOO POSH SCRIPT 94587

IMG_3858-ink

to make my tags

  • cut the Wild Spiral from BLACK GLOSSY PAPER SH44004
  • cut the ghosts with the two ghosts die in the Ghosts in the Forest set using a white glitter paper from MAJESTIC HUES GLITTER PAD GP1008
  • cut the background for the Boo Posh Script using a bright orange from the SUNNY ORANGE COLLECTION SP1002
  • cut the detailed letters for the Boo Posh Script from scraps of the Black Glossy Paper

IMG_3859-ink

  • Assemble the tags by securing the ghosts to the spiral with Glue Dots, making sure that their features line up with the black of the spiral.
  • Add the detailed lettering on top of the orange background using a Glue Pen and use Glue dots to add it to the spiral.
  • Punch a hole near the top of the spiral (I used the smallest setting on my Cropadile) and thread string/yarn/ribbon through the hole.

That's it!  Fun tags to add to bags of Halloween treats!

IMG_3855-ink

I'll be busy at my sewing machine soon creating costumes for my grandsons (and my son and his wife) who sent their requests on Sunday.  They always have a theme and dress up as a family.  This year looks like it will be Victorian vampires, so that should be challenging.  I will also sew some Halloween treat bags, fill them with goodies, and add these tags to send along with the costume pieces I make.

Happy Crafting!

Cut Starry Collage from a black A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Line the card with a 6" x 4-¼" rectangle of lavender cardstock from the Twilight Purple Collection.

Halloween Candy Bar Wrapper
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_2284

Good morning everyone!  Today I have a cute Halloween treat holder using some new products from the 2022 Memory Box Fall Release.

I cut a piece of white cardstock, 6 1/2" x 5 1/2" and used the eraser on the top of a pencil to add black dots to create a patterned background paper.

IMG_2279

Next, I applied double sided tape to one side of the paper on the 6 1/2" side and on the bottom of the backside of the paper.  Place a candy bar in the middle of the backside of the paper and wrap it around the candy bar.  Make sure you can easily pull the candy bar out.

IMG_2280

I punched a hole at the top of the wrapper and threaded a piece of ribbon through the hole to hold the candy bar.  Push the candy bar through the holder and ribbon.  To remove the candy bar all you have do is pull the 2 ends of the ribbon and the candy bar slides up.

IMG_2282

IMG_2281

To decorate the front of the holder, I die cut an oval shape from Glossy Black cardstock and one from white cardstock. I die cut the Creepy Cabin in the middle of the black oval and adhered it to the white cardstock oval.  Next, I die cut a larger oval from orange cardstock and glued the cabin oval to it. 

The pumpkin was die cut from orange paper and glued in place on the oval.

I die cut the words "Boo to You" from orange cardstock and the shadow from black cardstock.  The orange words were glued to the black shadow and adhered to the oval.  I glued this to the front of the wrapper.

IMG_2283

I tied a bow at the top of the wrapper to keep the candy bar in place.  

That's it for today!  Have a great weekend!

Window cutouts, layered diecuts and the new Creepy Cabin create a Halloween slimline with little ghostly accents.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with two great new designs from our Fall 2022 Collection.  There's a lot happening on this card  - here's my attempt to prettify (is that a word?) Halloween in soft peachy colors.

Cut, score and fold a black slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Prep the new Creepy Cabin die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched wax paper to help release the tiny and detailed pieces. Cut the card with Creepy Cabin and the solid Happy Halloween Posh Script background die.  Trim the 2 pointy pieces from the sides of the 'A' to make it easier to open and close the card.

Pressure-emboss the greeting background with the detailed Happy Halloween Posh Script die.  Cut the detailed greeting from a darker shade of peach cardstock in the Berry Red Collection.  Assemble the greeting.

Diecut a 3" x 8" rectangle of light peach cardstock with the Rectangle Basics die.  Attach it to the inside of the card.  

Cut the ghosts - from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer Set - from heavy white cardstock.  Define the eyes using a skewer or pushpin.  Attach a scrap of the bright orange 6x6 from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad behind the mouth.

Cut the small pumpkins from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer with the dark orange 6x6 from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.

Happy Halloween 6X6
by Anne Thompson

I'm loving the new Halloween/2022 Fall Collection, especially the Flying Witch.  She becomes the focal image on this 6X6 panel...

IMG_3847-ink

to make this panel

  • cut a piece of BLACK GLOSSY PAPER 44004 into a 6" square
  • cut a piece of brown plaid paper from WOODSY PLAID PP1018 into 5 7/8" square
  • layer the plaid onto the black glossy square
  • cut another strip of a different brown plaid 3" X 5 7/8" and add it toward the bottom of the larger plaid panel
  • die cut a circle of orange glitter paper from the GLITZY GLITTER PAD GP1007 using the CIRCLE BASICS SET 30087--I chose one that would fit the center of the white doily
  • glue the orange glitter paper circle in the center of a white doily and attach to the plaid paper in the upper left
  • die cut the FLYING WITCH 94624, the RICKETY HOUSE 94632, and the background for HAPPY HALLOWEEN 94585 from more of the black glossy paper
  • use Scor-Tape to attach the Flying Witch onto the orange glitter paper "moon"
  • add the Rickety House in the lower right corner with its fence using a glue pen
  • die cut the detailed HAPPY HALLOWEEN 94585 lettering from a bright orange paper from the SUNNY ORANGE COLLECTION SP1002 and use a glue pen to attach it to the black background and then secure it in the lower left corner
  • At this point I felt like it still needed something so I made a small floral arrangement for the upper right corner--some orangey leaves, gray flowers with orange centers, burlap twine, and black stamens all held together with large Glue Dots.

IMG_3844-ink
IMG_3844-ink

I haven't quite decided how I will use this panel.  It could become the front of a 6X6 card.  It could become part of a scrapbook page with Halloween photos added.  It could become a piece of home decor for the fireplace mantel at Halloween.  It could decorate the top of a Halloween treats box.  So many possibilities...

IMG_3852 (1)-ink

Happy Crafting!
