Happy Halloween - Pals October Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the Pals Halloween Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual trick-or treat hop where you will either learn great tricks for your creative projects or enjoy a blog candy treat.

You should have just left stop number 15 on the Pals Hop - Nancy Gleason at  My Stampin Space. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

  • I made a scallop circle easel card using my new fave, Modern Medley Designer Series Paper. 
  • Sponged some clouds in Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie & Baked Brown Sugar Ink, using a scallop circle as a template.
  • Heat embossed the sweet , little witch from the  Halloween Hello Stamp Set in Black Embossing Powder.
  • The flowers were made with the Boho Blossoms Punch and cut the leaves using the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die. 
  • To give the leaves & flowers dimension, using the Simply Scored Stylus and the Stampin' Pierce Mat, I worked the stylus in a circular motion over the flowers and leaves. 
Tip: The flowers and leaves will hold their shape and not be so delicate, if you very lightly mist with water and let dry or speed dry with Heat Tool.

  •  "Boo" to you is what you see when the card is fully opened.
