Children Project: Pumpkin Luminary

This is a good project for children or even yourself if you want to decorate your house for Halloween!  I used the Fancy Favor Bigz XL die to cut the box in Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Cut out a pumpkin face, put a piece of Vellum cardstock, decorate, add a battery-operated tealight candle and here you go!!!

Halloween card with Googly Ghouls

I know Halloween cards are not as popular as Christmas cards but I couldn’t resist to make one!!! I used the Googly Ghouls, which is part of the Monthly Bundle kit that you can get at 15% off!!! Check this other post to see what’s included in the kit: https://madewithpaper.wordpress.com/2012/09/04/halloween-treat-bag-googly-ghouls/

I used both the Extra Large and Large Oval punches for the mummy and the BOOOO stamps.  In the background, you can see a shape from the Apothecary Framelits dies (in Pumpkin pie card stock) and a Basic Black rectangle embossed with the new Chevron embossing folder. To imitate two black brads, I used 2 little circles that I punched out with the Owl Builder punch.  The card base is Old Olive and is stamped with the bat stamp in Basic Black.

CS and paper: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black

Ink: Basic Black

I made a really cute “treat bag” with the Googly Ghouls stamp set and the Fancy Favor Bigz XL die.  For the front, I stamped the mummy on an Whisper White Extra-Large Oval and added the googly eye.  I cut a strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock that I embossed with the Chevron folder. I cut both ends to form a “flag”.  I added a “Label” framelit in Basic Black card stock and a small “Happy Halloween” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  The back of the box was stamped with the  Googly Ghouls stamp set. The handle is a long strip on Pumpkin Pie card stock stamped all the way with “Boooo” and is attached to the box with 2 Basic Black Glimmer brads.

A little tip when making the box: start with the stamping on both sides and then assemble the box using sticky strip.
