Halloween Scene

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a good weekend! It was a busy one here, but I still found time for some crafting.

Did you participate in any World Card Making Day activities?  I will share my WCMD projects with you soon.  Thankfully, Stampin' Up's awesome World Card Marking Day special offers are available through October 5.  Save 15-25% on selected products.  See the World Card Making Day tab at the top of the page, above the date, for details.  And while you are there, don't forget about the Buy 3/Get 1 Free DSP offer!

Two of the next 3 weekends, I will have a table at a local craft and vendor show.  I wanted to make something to highlight my Halloween selection.  This is what I made.  I am also submitting this project for this week's them challenge from Claire over at The Paper Players.  The theme this week is Happy Halloween.  Click here to see what others have created.  

I was really pleased with the way it turned out.  The base and fence are 2 layers.  There are 2 trees as well, but they are not glued together.  Instead, I separated them with a strip of the new Foam Adhesive Strip to give the tree some dimension.

Supply List:

Ghoulish Grunge (#142241) was also used on this project.


Between now and October 5,  Order the Christmas Pines (Page 19) bundle from the Holiday Catalog and receive photo instructions and supplies to make 4 cards.
The details - contact me to place your order of the Christmas Pines bundle by October 5.  I will send you a PayPal invoice for your total order including your local tax and shipping +$6.80 for shipping your card supplies and instructions.  On October 7, I will place an order for all the bundles that have been paid.  Your bundle will ship directly to you from Stampin' Up!  I will ship the card supplies to you separately.

Note:  One of the sample cards uses the Pine Bough TIEF.  You don't have to buy that embossing folder, the card will work without it.  However, if you add it to your order, I will add a package of white envelopes at no charge in your box from me.

If you have any questions about this offer, please let me know.
