Believe Banner

I have a wonderful fireplace/mantle in my family room and it is such fun to create banners to hang from it!  I wanted to do something different for it this year and just LOVE the Under the Tree Specialty dsp from the Holiday Mini!  So I used my AWESOME Star Framelits, the very cool Larger than Life Alphabet set, the fun Cheerful Tags set and the delightful Cherry Cobbler 1″ Linen Ribbon (and you have to see what I did with the ribbon!) to create my banner!

Here’s a couple close-ups of the letters so you can see some of the details…

Tour de Freaks – Sept


Welcome to the September Tour de Freaks where the theme is “BOO to You” and I took that quite literally!  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Margaret Raburn’s Fun Stampin’ with Margaret blog.  What FUN and FABULOUS projects!

And now for mine…

BOO CardsFor my first BOO…I just HAD to use this little ghost.  It really is the CUTEST thing EVER and it is especially cute when done in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  To make the BOO on the banner I used the little letters to cut it our of the black and add a strip of the Motely Monster dsp Crushed Curry behind it using dimensionals.  The eyes are done with the 1/8″ hole punch and put a Basic Black circle behind it.  Otherwise I ran a piece of Pumpkin Pie through the Lucky Stars embossing folder.  Don’t you just LOVE that candy cone dsp?  Me too!

BOO Box 2

BOO BoxSo…I did this cute 3D using three Tiny Boxes from the Holiday Mini.  I wrapped some of the Candy Corn dsp around it to hold them all today.  I added Basic Black and the Candy Corn dsp to the tops and stamp the faces from Fall Fest, black embossed on Pumpkin Pie then punched out using 1 1/4 circle punch.  The ghosts are again made from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  The pumpkins were stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist, Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso for the stems.  The leaves are Old Olive.  For ‘boo’ I stamped the Larger Than Life Alphabet in Versamark and Black Embossed and cut out.  I just layered all this on to the wrap around the boxes for easy removal.

I hope you liked my BOO to you and now it time to head on over to Melissa Davies Rubberfunatics for more Frightfully Fun ideas!


Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN!
