Hey there, I've been having a blast making Halloween projects!  There are a couple more I need to post, but I think they will be perfect to decorate my office at work.

The banner was created with the Shapeabilities Pennants and Lacy Pennants dies from Spellbinders.   This is the first banner that I've created and let me just say...F-U-N!   I'm already thinking ahead to Christmas!   Ha!  

The "B" is a Sizzix die that was cut out, VersaMarked, sprinkled with Heat N Bond powder, heated just until melted, sprinkled with Our Craft Lounge's Crafty Sparkles (love their glitter!) then heat set one last time.   Sounds like a lot of work, but it really isn't and you can't beat the end results!   That shimmer is amazing!   The bat is also a Sizzix die and was done the same way.   The moon is a circle punch and is the back side to one of the designer papers. 

The ghosts and pumpkin are part of the OCL Ghostly Greetings stamp set.   The images were stamped on white card stock with black ink, colored with Copic markers then cut out.   Crafty Sparkles were glued onto the pumpkin's eyes, nose and mouth.   Twine and ribbon from my stash are knotted to keep the panels together.   The B, moon/bat and ghost/pumpkin are all popped up on foam.

Copic coloring:

Girl Ghost: V15, V12, C3, C1, C00, 0, YG23, YG21 Ghost with pumpkin: V15, V12, C3, C1, C00, 0, YR16, YR15, YR14, YR12, E25, E23, E21, T2 Outlines: 110
