First of all I’d like to apologize for my posts that are few and far between. Life is catching up with me and I can’t seem to stay on top of things. Bear with me for the next month as I go into panic mode before my son’s wedding at the end of the month. All will be well, I just need to concentrate on getting things ready for the big day! Thanks for understanding!
Today’s fun project is the Spooky Halloween Banner. This was SO much to make. These banners are GREAT! You really need to try one. They’re not hard at all. Click on the picture and you can see it up close and get a better view of all the pieces and parts.
The first thing you need for this project is the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit (#133507 $19.95). This kit contains your banners, the jute and all of the stencils for your backgrounds and letters. Then you need the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (#132698 $9.95) Both of these items are found on page 31 of the Holiday Catalog. The stencil kit comes with a Stampin’ Spritzer that you can use to apply your color but I preferred using a sponge dauber and ink pad. I used a twisting motion to apply the ink to the banner and it worked out pretty well.
Stampin’ Up! also offers a Christmas Banner Simply Created Kit and I can’t wait to try that one too. They’re SO fun. I also want to make one for Thanksgiving but since I don’t seem to have a lot of spare time anymore I may have to punt on that one! We’ll see!
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
