Halloween – Sparkle of the Season. Can you believe that I have been Missing in Action for almost 2 weeks now. I was planning to do my Live on YouTube at 3pm this afternoon, however, we still have lots to do for our Cousins’ Lunch on Sunday. There will be 13 of us at Old Stables HQ, so there is quite a lot to do, but it will be fun.
So, in preparation for next month, today I am bringing you a Halloween project instead. This is actually a card I made for our Team Swap last month, for the category of ‘Any Bundle’. The Sparkle of The Season Bundle is fantastic because it covers three sets of occasions, although it could actually be used for ANY season.
Obviously I opted for Halloween, as much as anything because I don’t really ‘do’ Halloween, so it is good to work outside of the box occasionally. The Sparkle of the Season Bundle is perfect for ‘outside the box’ crafting as it is not for one specific occasion, so if you only need one or two Halloween projects, but lots of Christmas ones, this is perfect!
I added stamped and die cut elements to my project, simply layering them to get added depth. Using the Black Glitter Paper was an obvious choice for me as it adds additional texture, as well as some subtle sparkle. Adding the Cute Stars reinforces that sparkle even more and brings the colour scheme of greys, Pumpkin Pie and Gorgeous Grape together. Why not take a look at the short Video Tutorial to see just how I put it together? I will be back to my usual routine next week and have lots of fun projects planned!
I have an ordering special for qualifying orders placed between 1st and 30th September that use the following Host Code:
Orders of AT LEAST £50 (before P&P) will receive a full reel of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the new Mini Catalogue, as a gift from me. This is an amazing ribbon because it can be ANY colour you want it, simply by colouring it with Stampin Blends or Stampin’ Write Markers! This is in ADDITION to my usual Thank You Card, Gift and Reward Vouchers. EVERYONE using the Host Code (or placing an order of £150 or more) will receive the September Customer Card Kit. Please note that there is only one Gift Pack per customer per month.
Video Tutorial Time!
