Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for October. This is a Spooktacular event. So get ready to be frightened and delighted by lots of Halloween ideas!
I am using the Birds of a Feather stamp set for my projects. Don't you love those birds. I go for the cute, not scary!
This card has an arm that crosses over the card. It's really neat.
Start with a card base of Basic Black that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to 3 x 11. Score at 5 1/2. Glue this to the center of the base. Use Grid Paper to help get this little card straight. Use the Pumpkin Pie gingham paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper. Cut this to 2 7/8 x 5 1/2. Add to the front.
Cut Silver Foil to 1/4 inch. Butt on either side of the 3 inch card.
Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2. Score at 1 inch. Use the Triple Banner Punch at the other end. Stamp the banner with the Trick or Treat stamp from Birds of a Feather in the same color randomly. Decide where you would like to have this arm. Glue the short end to the back of the card.
Cut a Basic Black scallop circle using the Layering Circles dies. Stamp the pirate bird in Tuxedo Memento Black ink. Color with Blends. I used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light and Dark Highland Heather, and Light Smoky Slate. Fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back of the duck. Take Silver Metallic Thread and run it around several fingers, slip it off, and lay it down on the dimensionals. Play with the thread until you get it the way you like it. Add to the scallop circle. Glue the circle to the arm. Make sure that you do not put glue on the parts that stick over the arm.
I made a box to go with this card using the Stitched Nested Labels dies. I found this box originally by Jeanette Cobb. Of course I had to change a few things to make it my own.
You can get two of these boxes from one sheet of cardstock. Begin with a piece of Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Cut 2 inches off so that you have a piece of 2 x 8 1/2. Score this piece at 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 5 3/4, and 7 1/8 the long way. Score at 1/2 and 1 1/2 on the short side.
I have a video showing how to make the box. With the measurements above I think you will be fine.
Jeanette made the box to hold a 3 x 3 sticky note pad. She punched a hole on the side to hold a pencil. I decided that this box needed candy! I used a 3 x 6 Gusseted Cello Bag and filled it with a candy corn assortment. I folded over the bag and stapled it shut. The little skull stamp is from the September Paper Pumpkin stamp set. Stamp in black on a white scrap. Punch with the 1 inch circle punch. Add a frame of Pumpkin Pie scallops with the Layering Circles dies. Add with a dimensional.
I also added a little handle for the box. Use the new black Scalloped Edge Ribbon. Use about 12 inches of ribbon. Punch a small hole, add the ribbon from the outside, tie a knot. Do that for each side.
So here are the box and card together.
Thanks so much for joining me today. Don't forget to go to all of the blogs on the hop! You will be so inspired, or maybe frightened!
