I’m super excited about today's post. As many of you know, I was recently invited to be a Stamping Tech for Technique Tuesday. Today, I'm taking part in my first blog hop with the other TT techs! Hooray!
We are playing with the new Printables Technique Tuesday recently debuted at the scrapbook conventions they go to. These three printed sheets (Candy Cane Wishes, Harvest Time and Hocus Pocus) consist of designs you can cut up and use to decorate cards, scrapbook pages and other fun paper crafted projects. They will be available through TechniqueTuesday.com soon.
For today's project, I've decided to showcase the Hocus Pocus sheet. I've created an invitation to a Halloween party, along with a decoration that you could use as a centerpiece for that party. Take a gander:
For the candy bowl topper, I began by covering a dowel rod with twine (Peapod from The Twinery). I then simply cut apart the sentiments and added a few extra touches, like the googly eyes and some glossy accents. I adhered all of them to the rod using glue dots and then cut out that cute little spider to add on as well. I topped it all off with the circle punched at the top and and an orange bow around my coffee mug. The rod is held into the bottom of the cup by a Styrofoam ball cut in half.
One of the awesome things about these printables is that those circles work perfectly with my 1.25" circle punch. So, I punched a few out and added them to the front of this super easy invitation. I added some stitching and a few stickers to spell out "you're invited" and there you have it!
Be sure to check out the blogs of everyone taking part in today’s blog hop.
