Hi Everyone! I love Halloween 🙂 which is kind of odd as I can’t watch horror movies at all. Spook movies stay with me too much! BUT I love Halloween parties and seeing the trick or treaters.
My projects for our Halloween hop are a fun candy centerpiece for a party or your desk at work And a card. that uses items from the Spooky Sweets Bundle.
For my card, I wanted to share a couple of easy techniques. 1) Moon Glow and 2) Texture Embossing.
For the moon’s glow, take Whisper White ink and a sponge dauber and sponge a circle slightly larger than the punch out moon. Just like when you look up at the night sky, there is a slight glow around the moon!. This also creates a contrast to allow the bats to stand out.
One might not think about Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder as a Halloween background. Don’t be afraid to try different embossing folders in a new way!
Here’s a super cute way to offer straws to your party guests or just use as a party décor element. Fill a vase with Halloween Hershey’s Kisses and accent with the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I found the paper straws at Target I believe. I had them in my party supplies stash. I added the bats with a Wobble element onto a 1-3/4″ circle punched out with Pumpkin Pie. The bats and circle match the bat/orange wrapped Kisses!
And please join me at my Sunday Night Stamping this week on my
