Halloween Banner

Just finished a Halloween banner for a Halloween party my grandsons will have this month.

First I inked the edges of the chipboard in black ink then covered the chipboard in black Bazzill paper, the letter chipboard was inked and covered with two different Halloween kraft papers. Also added additional Halloween kraft paper for another dimension behind the first layer of chipboard. I sealed the whole project with a Tim Holtz glue and sealer. I used black cord to tie the letters together and added several different ribbons between each letter.

Thanks for stopping by. Next I am going to make another smaller banner that says Boo and hope to make a trick of treat bag as seen on the Graphic 45 Blog hop this week.

Happy paper crafting, Judy

Owl Birthday Card

I just finished a card for my grandson's first birthday, since the party theme was "Look Who's Turning One," I wanted to design my card to go with the theme.

The blue paper is dotted swiss with three ovals cut on my cricut. The first oval is white, the second oval is also white but inked on the edges with a light brown, then the third or bottom layer is brown paper. The owl is also cut on my cricut using an .svg file and cut with the Sure Cuts Alot Program. The tag was stamped using Staz-On Jet Black Ink.
