Trick or Treat

Hi there blog friends! With the first weekend in October behind us, doesn't Halloween feel like it's coming towards us in a hurry? It'll be here before we know it! Well, I had promised my SIL I would make her a Halloween banner, so I got busy this weekend to put this one together. Thank goodness I was able to finish it and drop it in the mail. Whew! I had fun creating this little Trick or Treat number. I pieced together a lot of ideas I've seen in stores and of course, blurfing. I wanted to use the scallop square in black and create the letters on a light background. I decided to go with a subtle stencil detail, so I daubered in the Kind Thoughts Brocade Stencil from Stampin'Up! using Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink against a Very Vanilla Background. Then, I used the Serif Alphabet Bigz letters to finish out the project. Here's a little closer look: And of course, to get a feel of the banner in it's entirety, here's a full view. This was a fun project to make! Now that I've made one, I plan on making more banners for Thanksgiving and Christmas, too. I gotta say the Big Shot really makes crafting decor and party favors a snap! Hope you liked this idea. Have a fantastic day!
