Spooky Banner

I love Halloween, but it just seems to be here so quick that I don't have time to do as much as I'd like to create some fun Halloween themed projects.  With Thanksgiving in October here in Canada it just seems like the month flies! So this year I wanted to make the time to make a fun banner.  With a 6 and almost 2 year old at home right now we don't do super spooky, and really I'm more of a fun spooky than scary spooky person.

I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for the scalloped banner and pennant banner shapes and George and Basic Shapes Cartridge for the letters and letter outlines. Here's a shot of the mantel decorations this year.  The subway art in the frame was a free download from How To Nest For Less, which I printed on photo paper!

I used Imaginisce stamps, stamped on watercolour paper with Tombow markers, a sparkly Gelliroll pen and some paper piecing with patterned paper for the vampire, mummy and Frankenstein girl.

Lots of layering with paper flowers, buttons and bakers twine.

Some rubons and Distress Inked edges.

More ribbon tied at the ends.

Some more Halloween Holiday décor...
More info on the cards can be seen on this post here and here.

Hope you are all gearing up to have a very Happy Halloween!
