HALLOWEEN..Buckets, Flaps and Panels..

SCS PILLOW BOX BUCKET

My good friend ELIZABETH WALSH recently sent me this link from SCS on making a HALLOWEEN bucket using the pillow box pattern… you may have a die for this and if you do it will be easier but still its cute and you have a whole month to get one or two made for those special little guys in your life or even for a friend or yourself for table decoration…

i do have the die but no time right now to make one…still its really cute…

DAWN’S POP UP PANEL…This is the most incredible card and while it looks complicated…just watch the video so you make sure to cut and glue where necessary and if you do that it not complicated… I would recommend that you cut and score the mechanism and store them in the sheet protector so that you have them ready to go when you need them… this one is a halloween but it could be birthday eat…

The cute thing about this card is that it just keeps opening… just a matter of decorating several pieces then assemble the card…and again it can be anything it doesn’t have to be halloween..

Not to be left out on Halloween…I found this ghost card in my PAPER CRAFTER and fell in love…. turns out the die is Lil Inkers… and I think its available from Amazon… I love him… and have used him several different ways…both inside cards and outside… here are a couple of samples..

this was the magazine version.

lil-inker-ghost-border-die-1

this ghost was cut from text weight pale green paper and then because i thought the design looked a little bare I tried stamping in a new BRILLIANCE PAD called STARLIGHT BLACK …on white paper its closer to a smokey grey with glitter … and it doesn’t show up much in the background of the ghost but I loved it as it looked IN THE BACKGROUND… I did trim the ghost down a bit so that he was didn’t cover too much of the house… and then I stamped the BOO on the front and I did use the same stamp pad.

bird-watercolors-1

this is a tri-fold ….5 ½ x 12.. score at 4, and 8… then on the 4 ” score you use a hole punch approx 1 ½ round and you center it on the 4″ fold and punch out the hole then you fold it closed and glue a moon the same size .. In this one I also cut the top with a wavy cutter and then on the front I folded a flap about 1 inch wide back and used designer type paper to decorate.

bird-watercolors-2

this is the ghost card folded open with the front flap …the ghost is cut off so that it doesn’t stick out beyond that fold on the front… and still I like him…

I like it … these are just two of the designs I used with the ghost… and I also think he works for birthdays…in BIRTHDAYS AREN’T SO SCARY …it all those candles… …happy birthday… love it..

Ok this is all for this week and plenty for you to try….AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY…wire headed cyber toad…AKA kath
