Halloween at Simply Stampin'

Good Morning!

Well it's my first week as a new design team member with Simply Stampin', and for our very first week the challenge set is Halloween!

My first thought was, I don't have any Halloween stash, but then I thought maybe I can make some. So I pulled out my punches and started to play, I have seen loads of great things made with the owl punch like reindeer, ghosts etc so that seems like a great place to start, I punched out a Basic Black owl body, then using my Word Window punch I punched one of the ends along the side of a piece of Black CS, before using the oval punch to make cool wings, my bat was taking shape, then I thought I needed something for him to sit on, originally I wanted to make a tree branch to hang my bat from but, as my word window punch was already out, I decided to punch out a fence, inking each piece to give depth.

I sponged a punched circle in More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie for a spooky feel, and spritzed the Rich Razzleberry background before layering on Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz CS.

Why not grab your punches and see what you can make? xx

Kelly, this is fabulous! I love the Word Window fence and the gorgeous sponged moon! Your colour combo is perfect for Halloween too.

Oh, I did chuckle when I saw we both went batty!

Woohoo! This is a brilliant debut into your simply stampin' career :) I love how you've made the owl into a bat and used your word window punch to make the fence-genius!!

I'm glad to see you back on your blog :)
