Happy Friday and thanks for visiting my blog! This week our Fabulous Friday project theme over on the Sisters in Stamping blog is Halloween decor. I decided to create an altered picture frame to drop in a Halloween photo. I picked up this inexpensive frame at a big box store and used two quarter sheets of Lucky Limeade card stock where the pictures would normally go, keeping the mat that came with it (super easy!) and embellished one side, leaving the other blank for my photo.
Here is a close-up - kind of hard to see the shiny glitter on the "BOO." The letters were cut out from silver glimmer paper using my Big Shot and the Typeset Alphabet. I also used the Big Shot and the Spider Web textured impressions folder with a quarter sheet of Lucky Limeade card stock to create the background. I sponged it lightly with a stampin' sponge and basic gray ink to make the texture stand out more. I also tied a piece of calypso coral ruffled ribbon around the picture mat for a pop of color. To create the bat and ghost punch art please see below...
Supplies used for bat and ghost punch art:
Card stock - basic black, whisper white
Punches - Scallop Edge border (#119882, $15.95), 1-1/4" circle (#119861, $15.95), Owl builder (118074, $16.95), 1/2" circle (#119869, $5.95)
Accessories - Googlies (#127539, $2.50), Tombow multipurpose liquid glue (#110755, $3.95), Paper Snips (#103579, $9.95)
1) Use the Owl builder punch with a 2-1/2" x 2" scrap of basic black card stock to punch out the owl body and 2 smaller eyes.
2) Use the Scallop Edge border punch and a 2" x 5" strip of basic black card stock to cut the scalloped edge.
3) Feed the punched edge into the 1-1/4" circle punch and punch it out as shown to create the bat wing. Punch two of these.
4) Create the eyes by punching out two 1/2" circles from a scrap piece of whisper white card stock. Use Tombow multipurpose liquid glue to attach the smaller black circles to the whisper white ones. Attach these to the basic black body of the bat. Attach Googlie eyes using Paper Snips (they work great as tweezers!).
5) Use the Tombow glue to attach the wings - be sure you are careful and only use a smidge!
1) Use the Owl Builder punch with a scrap of whisper white card stock and cut out the body of the owl. Use Paper Snips to carefully trim off the feet.
2) From the same 2-1/2" x 2" scrap of basic black card stock, punch out the two smaller eyes and heart. Attach as shown.
Attach stampin' dimensionals to the back of the punch art pieces to adhere to your project.
