It's the Stampendous Pumpkin Parade! Okay, I like pumpkins. Their cool, but I really LOVE to color them! They are an excellent opportunity to practice shading! I love the way these adorable Stampendous Punkin Palscome out looking when shaded using my Copics! Too fun!!
Step 1: Glue 6 3/4" x 5 1/4" purple patterned paper to 7" x 5" black card. Mat 6" x 4 3/4" striped patterned paper onto black cardstock and glue at an angle to card as shown. Mat 2 1/4" x 5" green dot pattered paper onto black cardstock and glue to card as shown.
Step 2: Cut 5" x 4 1/4" white cardstock, and use blender to add Black Soot, Chipped Saphire, and Shaded Lilac for the night sky. Start by blending Shaded Lilac at the bottom and work your way to the middle. Next blend Chipped Sapphire from the middle to the top, and last blend Black Soot from the top to the middle. Use White paint pen to add dots to the night sky. (You can use a post it note across the bottom of paper, blend lightly with black soot to create the ground)
Step 3: Stamp Punkin Pals and color with Copic Markers V12,V15,V17, V00,V03,V06, C03,C05,C07. Cut out punkins and foam tape to card. Mat onto black dot patterned paper, and glue to card as shown. Add Zip Dry to bottom of paper and sprinkle with Stampendous Gold Lux.
Step 4: Cut out banner, and stamp "Happy Halloween" sentiment using Black Soot, and Seedless Preserves. Glue to stick and foam tape to card. Glue buttons to card and add rhinestones to buttons.

I thought I would keep it simple this week! Here is an easy box that can be decorated in any theme, and is perfect for an invite or a present! With Halloween around the corner I was inspired to create a Zombie invite for a movie night using Zombie Zach Digi stamp. I filled it with my favorite version of popcorn flavored puffs called Puff Corn! The back is a perfect place for an invitation, or maybe a birthday wish!
Start by printing the box template on to what ever paper you like
At this point you can stamp on it to add a pattern. (If you would like, this would be the right time to cut a window from the box front, and glue in a piece of transparency sheet) Cut the box out, and fold. Glue ends together.
Attach a 4 3/4" x 6 1/2" coordinating paper to the back and decorate!
Super easy right? Once you make one, you'll be able to crank them out!
Here are some more fun ideas on how you could use this design:
For this week color inspiration I found this Vintage Mummy Poster! I love the color scheme and the black against those Halloween colors really make those colors pop! I used Mummy & Batty digi stamp to create this spooky card! My mummy is not as scary, and he's very loveable!
