Trick or Treat with Fun Stampers Journey

I hope that my USA friends had a great Labor Day holiday. It was very quiet here in the house, which meant that I got some studio time.  

My thoughts have been on mixed-media and Halloween. For my adventure yesterday I decided to go with the latter and break in one of our (Fun Stampers Journey) rubber stamp bundles, Trick or Treat. Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) bundles include the rubber stamp set and a matching die set and we have many to choose from. Trick or Treat was just as much fun to color with Copics, as it was to finish my first Halloween décor for 2015.

After the Copic coloring was completed, I started going through some of my newer Spellbinder dies. The two that popped out at me were a Shapeabilities Pop Up Decorated Birthday die and the Painted Lady die.

I cut the Painted Lady twice with FSJ cardstocks in Rock Candy and Summer Days. I used some of the Summer Days cardstock for the windows paper piecing of the Painted Lady. After the paper piecing, I added some eyes and eyebrows hoping for a little eeriness. I added a little more Halloween coloring to the house with Eggplant, Sedona Sun, Black, and Sea glitter

The next step was die cutting FSJ Black Licorice cardstock with Spellbinder’s Pop Up die Decorated Birthday. I added a strip of FSJ’s Treat Time Prints 6” designer paper pad on the front bottom for stability. It’s now ready for the Trick or Treat images randomly placed around and on the house. I love the black cat on the roof. The final touch was a little cheese cloth colored with FSJ True Color Fusion ink in Sweet Pear and Hazel Nut.

I am looking forward to adding this to my collection of handmade Halloween decorations.
I love Halloween!

My very fun project would like to be considered for:
