Halloween Telescoping Card

By | Big Shot, Halloween | One Comment

I have to admit that I’ve never been much into Halloween and I don’t own a single Halloween stamp set. I think this is about to change now that my girls are starting to enjoy the dress-up and candy side of Halloween (they hate the scary stuff) AND I have seen so many frightfully cute Halloween projects this year!

I’ve been sharing a lot of Christmas projects lately, so I thought we should switch to Halloween for a few days since it’s coming up quick.  I am not a huge fan of Halloween nor do I make many Halloween projects, but I got together with a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators last week and they shared these fun Halloween crafts… This yummy Jack-o’-Lantern Bowl was made by Lyssa Zwolanek using the Spooky Expressions Black Decor Elements (#117568). Just apply the Spooky Expressions Décor Elements to any smooth surface–a candy jar, a serving dish, a door–and you have an instant…
