September PALS Blog Hop

Welcome to the September PALS HOP! This month, we're featuring Fall/Halloween themed projects for your inspiration! If you've hopped over from Carla Bazhenow, http://www.carlas-scraps.com/, I'm stop number 8 on the PALS HOP and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for papercrafted creations from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the PALS HOP LINE-UP below and you'll be back on track!

I made two projects for this Hop.  The first one is geared towards Halloween.  It is a little candy box that I filled with chocolates.  I found the pattern, designed by Beate Johns, on the Scor-pal website. 

Stamps: Wicked Cool, Pocket Silhouettes
Paper:  Concord Crush, White
Ink:  Black
Accessories:  oval punch, ribbon, scor-pal, scor-tape, craft stick, black marker
  • The craft stick was colored with a black marker and the Spooky label was glued to it.
  • To make the ribbon stay in place, scor-tap was added to the back.
  • Filled with kisses to give to someone who least expects it ... that's spooky!
My second project, a card, was made with Thanksgiving in mind.  I really like how this turned out.  Was it the sentiment, colors, layout or pumpkins?  I'm not sure but it is one of my favorites. 

Stamps:  Seasonal Sentiments
Paper:  Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, White
Ink:  Early Expresso, Always Artichoke
Accessories:  Nestabilities circle and scallop dies, texture embossing folder, oval punches, bird punch, brads
  • The pumpkins were made by punching ovals out of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, sponging the edges and the gluing them together.
  • The leaves were punched from the bird punch.  I know pumpkins grow on vines but I liked the look of the leaves.  I was being creative ... {smile}
Hop along for more inspiring ideas from Kris Kilcoyne, http://kweenbee.typepad.com/, stop number 9 on the Fall/Halloween PALS HOP!
