Ghost & Ghouls Halloween Banner




Hi Everyone!
2 days in a row I've made 3D items...now that is a record! I've had so much fun making this Halloween Banner today with my son Ethan (he made the boy monster on the right, he got board after that one!). Now this is a labour of love as it was loads of cutting! But I am so glad I took the time to make it!
So you recognize that shape of my ghouls?  These are blown up versions of the Owl XL Punch.  One of the great things about being a Demonstrator is Stampin' Connection which is a Demo only web site that ALL demo's have access too.  This is a place where demo's share their ideas with other demo's.  Now 2 demo's have posted some cool projects there; one is Ellen Kemper who posted this cute monster she made with the Owl Punch and the other Lynn Pratt who made a PDF to purchase the blown up version of the owls to make Santa Owls.  Well I bought the pdf and mixed it up to make my own project! These took a lot of punches: Curly Label XL, 2 1/2"- 1 3/4"- 1 3/8" 1 1/4"- 1" 3/4"- 1/2" Circles, Oval XL, and the Heart to Heart XL.  The picture does not show it very well, but on the girl monster, I cut long eyelashes with Black C/S and curled them up with a bone folder, SO CUTE! And it was Ethan's idea to use the small heart to make her mouth. I added little touches with Dazzling Diamonds and  ink thenattached them all with Jumbo Eyelets & Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain.
Hope you like them and make some little ghouls of your own with your little ghouls this Halloween!
Thanks for stopping by
Dawn
