Halloween Build A Bear

Good morning! Last night I had a workshop for one of my club ladies. She host a Halloween workshop every year for her and her friends and we always have a great time. Last night was certainly no exception! We laughed and just had a wonderful evening among friends. If you and your friends would like to get together for a fun and relaxing evening of stamping be sure and contact me. I provide all the supplies and just provide a light refreshment.
Of course with the new Build A Bear Dies I just couldn't resist doing a Halloween Project last night. We started by making the bag with the Bag with Scallops Bigz XL Die (114519). It was cut out in Basic Black 12 x12 Card Stock ( 106532). The great thing about this box is that the Big Shot does all the scoring for you making it super easy to make a lot of bags and make them quickly. We used sticky strip to add the sides to the bag and cut off the scallop top because I wanted to leave the bag open. Next we added a piece of Perfect Plum Designer Paper from the Cast-A-Spell Designer Series Paper (115677). I have been using this paper on several of the Halloween projects and I love the color combo of Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Black.
Watch for more projects this week. We then cut out our Build a Bear using Stampin'Up! Bear (117977) to make the body. I used Close to Cocoa Card Stock (101341) for his body and Creamy Caramel (102514) for his muzzle. A piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock (102128) was placed behind the face to add color to his eyes, nose and mouth. The easiest way to do this is just punch out a circle of card stock with the 1" Circle Punch (109046). We used Pumpkin Pie Card Stock (105117) to make the pumpkin costume and Basic Black Card Stock (102851) to make his mask. Again a 1 3/4" Circle (112004) of Basic Black Card Stock was placed behind the jack-o-lanterns face to add color. The die we used to cut out the costume is Stampin'Up! Kooky Spooky (117979) and also includes a witch's hat and broom. After using 2 Way Glue (100425) to add the part to our Bear we used dimensionals to add it to the front of the bag. Wouldn't these be great party treats for a classroom or even for those extra special trick or treaters you might have stop by. All items are available to purchase from me just click on the My Business Website at the top left of the page. Thank you for stopping by today and be sure and check back for more Halloween projects. 'Til Next Time, Tonya
