Sorry, it’s been a while since I’ve posted… and here I am with a pumpkin – #notcardsnotpaper –
This is my first time decorating for halloween – so I bought a pumpkin from Target –
(Free delivery – score!) and found this image of Jack Skellington (we love Nightmare before Christmas)…
So I printed it out, and taped it to the pumpkin.
I have this old knife (I think it’s a grapefruit knife?) and I used it to carve it.
When I got to the small pieces, I switched to an exacto knife (might have been smarter to use that the whole time but live & learn). Be careful, I cut my finger a little bit!
I also cut out an extra piece accidentally- so I used some glue dots & put it back in :).
I put a battery operated light in the pumpkin… I think it looks cool, and my kitty likes it too! This was a quick project – took me less than 1 hour….
Have a happy halloween! I may do one more ( I already bought the pumpkin – just need to find the time to do it!)
Hi everyone! Happy Halloween! Crafty Card Gallery designer Thia here, from Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station with today’s inspirational post just for YOU!
My card crafting inspiration comes from various places…and that cookie up there was part of the inspiration for my card that I’m sharing with you today…along with this month’s Crafty Card Gallery theme: trees.
Since it is Halloween, I wanted a SPOOKY TREE on my card, but I didn’t want it to be my focal point because HOW was I going to make a cute spooky tree? Then there was that Facebook post I saw of this adorable cookie from a shop in Eugene, Oregon called Cookies Cookies (so says my dear Facebook friend). Anyway…that’s when the inspiration bug HIT! And so this card came to be:
It was a bit tough gluing on the gems…they didn’t wind up in the exact spot I wanted on my ghost. But it’s still a fun 3″ card! Wouldn’t you agree?
Thanks for joining us here today! Have a fun and safe Halloween! I’ll be back with more card inspiration on the 31st of every month with 31 days! So check back here on New Years Eve day to see more of my creations! Have a Crafty Card day!
Hi everyone! It’s me Tonya and I’m excited to be back as a guest designer here at the Crafty Card Gallery. At the bottom of my post I have a list of supplies I used to create this fun Halloween Bingo card. I cut various lengths of cardstock and adhered to the 5″x6″ base of the card. Stamp the Halloween Bingo image on lime green cardstock and glue on top of base.
Cut out two rosettes, spider and a banner. Adhere both rosettes together and glue seal punch on top of rosette. Adhere banner to card and then glue rosette on top of banner. Next glue spider on top of rosette and adhere wigglie eyes to spider.
I used a 2 inch Head Pin to create these fun “hat pins”. First add a sequin then a Connie Crystal beads. Add a drop of glue and seam binding around the pin. Also adhere a Dew Drop to the top of each pin and then add to the card.
I hope this little card has inspired you to create one for yourself.
