Frightening Feline frame is Wicked Cool and lots of fun!



I'm so happy you're here for Week 3 of my 13 weeks of Halloween fun with The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop. I've got a fun home decor project this time around.



Each week, add your Halloween creation to my blog hop, along with the code near the bottom of each post. When you add the code to your blog while you are in the edit HTML mode, your readers can play along, leave comments, and view the samples right from YOUR blog!

At the end of 13 weeks, I'll be giving one person a $50 Stampin' Up! gift certificate! The more times you enter the blog hop, the better your chances of taking home the Grand Prize. You also get a ticket just for displaying The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop badge on your blog. Whoo hoo!



I wanted to create a Halloween decoration for my studio that is uniquely Stampin' Up!. I bought a wood frame for a buck at a craft store, traced it onto Howlstooth and Scaringbone dsp and cut it out. I used Mod Podge to adhere the dsp to the frame.


I stamped a couple of cobwebs on the frame from the Wicked Cool stamp set, then sponged around the frame with Basic Black ink. I traced the inside of the frame onto First Edition dsp, cut it out and heat embossed the Frightening Feline stamp in Basic Black ink (the new foam pads are juicy enough to do this!). To finish, I made a Spooky banner with a fun, twisted Crumb Cake tulle flower as decoration with a Neutral button and linen thread.

I've shown you my Halloween project - now show me yours! You've got until next Tuesday at 1 p.m. (PST). I can't wait to see what you come up with.
