It is time for Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Design Team to show you some amazing things from our September box! For those of you who are unfamiliar, the team gets a box of fabulous SU products to create our projects each month. A lot of the products in our September box are for Halloween! If you have come over from Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.
So I told you there was a lot of Halloween stuff in this latest box. Well, I had an a-ha moment while looking at the Witches’ Brew Washi Tape. For some reason it looked like caution tape to me and then I thought, hmm, door decorations. I have seen beautiful Christmas door cards (even have made one) but a Halloween door seemed really fun. I started by making a black glitter wreath. I used the 1-3/4″ and 1-3/8″ Circle Punches to make the base. Then I smooshed (official term) it into my Versamark Pad and put on some Heat & Stick Powder. Then I layered on the new Black Stampin’ Glitter. This stuff is SOOO cool. And most of you know that I’m not really a glitter girl. But seriously…this glitter is awesome! And the Heat & Stick Powder does a great job of keeping it in place. I finished the wreath with the BEWARE sign…a stamp from the Halloween Bash set. The door is made from Smoky Slate card stock and is sponged with some Basic Gray. After putting on the door panels, I criss-crossed the washi tape to create the caution look. Finally I added a little doorknob. It is a Basic Rhinestone that was colored black with a Sharpie marker.
I hope you enjoy this fun little card and that it inspires you to create your own spooky door! Next up on the hop is the awesome Mercedes Weber. Make sure you go take a look at fabulous creations of the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
