Stamp It Blog Hop -- Halloween Spooky Boo Eclipse


Hello, hello there stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my spot on the Stamp It Bog Hop for the month of September.  This month's theme is anything related to "Fall" or Halloween.  I have been making a lot of Halloween cards the last few weeks, so I thought I would put together a cute and FUN piece of home decor.  So, my project is a Halloween 3D (5"x7") picture frame wall hanging featuring my most loved stamp set...wait for it...can you guess which one?  I know you know...yesss, I'm showing off the Spooking Cat stamp set found in the Holiday catalog.  Trust me, you are going to LOVE my project!...sooo stinking ADORBS!!

If you have been traveling along the Stamp It Group Blog Hop, you may have come here from, Brenda Diaz's blog.  If this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.



It has been a long time since I have created anything using a Sponge Brayer and ink.  eeek!  Once I added Pumpkin Pie to the center portion of the Glossy White Paper, the technique flowed well.  It's like getting back up on your bicycle (or in the saddle).  The top and bottom were brayered with Perfect Plum Classic Ink.

The witches hat was inked with Archival Basic Black ink, clear embossed and set with a heat tool.  The cute little kitty full of words was inked with Versa mark, embossed with gold powder and set with a heat tool.  The owl was inked with Smokey Slate ink, but no heat embossing.  I wanted him to stay a little more subtle among everything else.



I chose to die cut the word "SPOOKY" with the Large Letters Framelits Dies because it had an even number of letters that fit nicely in the picture frame.  I wanted to make sure that the letters were die cut across the Pumpkin Pie and Perfect Plum gradients, too.  Instead of adding dimensionals to the letters, I die cut 2 sets of Basic Black letters and glued all 3 layers together.  The letters with dimensionals would not fit behind the glass pane, so I added Fast Fuse to the letters and I set them in place onto the glass pane with the main 5"x7" panel behind the glass pane.  The end result was to achieve the "Eclipse" look, which worked out quite nicely.  :)

For character, I added some Striped Wired Ribbon, Vintage Crochet Trim, and a long strand of Gold Mini Sequin Trim to the corner.  Oh, and don't forget this little Rats!  They are harmless on paper, so stamp, cut and adhere all you want...they won't bite!  :)

So, tell me your thoughts on this framed artwork?  Is it something that you would give a try to make? I'm curious to know.

For more Fall or Halloween themed inspiration, make sure you hop on over to Linda Cullen's blog and all the other Stamp It Group members' blogs to see what projects they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.
