October Blog Hop

 Hello and welcome to another round of our Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop. This month the theme is Halloween and I have three projects to share with you. The first is a framed My Digital Studio piece that I recently made for a hostess. She loves Halloween and had asked about the Toxic Frameable Digital Designer Template so I decided to make this for her.  I printed it from my home computer and then trimmed it down to fit a 5x7" frame. To add just a bit more interested I added the 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon and Basic Black Card Stock to the printed image then to the frame I added a Rosette that I made using the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper. I added a Button and a Black Punched out circle to the rosette to finish it off.

My next project was inspired by the Christmas ornament on the front of the Holiday Mini. I thought a Halloween one would be just as cute and would be great for a package or just as a decoration on a fall garland. I again used the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper and cut out two different ornaments with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Die. I used the new 7/8" Cotton Ribbon and some black lace I had on hand between each ornament on the bottom layer. For the rosette I used Scallop Trim Border Punch, a Vintage Faceted Designer Button and a Large Pearl Basic Jewel that I colored black with a Sharpie Marker. I realized after I finished it that the center sort of looks like an eye which for Halloween is kind of fun.
My third project features the Bootiful Occasions Stamp Set. I really like the rain boot in this set but for this card I decided to use the Witch's Boot. I was stuck on a layout so found one similar to this on Stampin' Connections then got busy on my card.  I used a mixture of different colors from the Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks for the flags which were cut out with the Itty Bitty Banners Framelits and the Big Shot. You just cut out the biggest banner then cut it in half and you have two flags for your cards. My image was stamped with Jet Black Stazon and colored in with the Stampin' Write Markers before I punched it out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and layered on the Basic Black card stock that was cut out with the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit Die. The sentiment which I cut apart from the boot is stamped then punched out with the Large Oval Punch and finally I added texture to the Rich Razzleberry Card Stock with the Fancy Fan Folder.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my projects and you are ready to travel on to Dawn's Blog. I so look forward to seeing what everyone makes each month. It is a great way to be inspired to try something new or just see a product used in a different way. Thanks again, Tonya

Great article. I've enjoyed this contribution. Its nice to see every questions answered in a blog post like this. I will add this post on my blog and link to it. Thanks for a clear informative post, I've learned a lot. I hope to see videos though as I can be A.D.D and reading articles is not my favorite thing to do online. So what I do sometimes is just print the whole thing and read offline.
