Adam and I don't talk stamping or house stuff very often. Both of these departments are really left for me to deal with. But the other night Adam "trespassed" into my craft room (can you tell the temperature of the discussion?) and asked why I was working so hard on Halloween projects. So of course I simply responded with, "Because it's right around the corner and such a GREAT holiday!" He was surprised to hear me say that two months is right around the corner. And I followed with, well, it's not that close BUT I need to start decorating at the beginning of September. He truthfully doesn't care and our discussion was in fun, but then I got to thinking, am I crazy, is this too early???? My reasoning is it's nice to have on display for all of you to see and touch and get ideas from now so you have plenty of time to create and make! (OK, that and I LOVE Halloween!!!) So, if you have a minute today to leave me a comment, let me know when you think I can start pulling out my INSIDE Halloween decor!!! I will mail off a series of 5 cards to someone that leaves a post between now and Monday on this post.
Now, onto why you are here...today's HALLOWEEN project! I have a bunch of jars from IKEA that I wasn't sure what to do with. After staring at it for quite some time, this is what I came up with. I used the raw Gray vinyl and ran it through the Big Shot using the Lattice Die. I used 3 1/2 of them to cover this jar. After applying the vinyl, I added the 5/8 Black Grosgrain. I wanted a bit more "colour" so I put a one inch strip of Perfect Plum cardstock on the inside of the jar. Then of course it needed a tag! I had to use the Graveyard Gala stamp set that I just LOVE!!!! But instead of using the information for an invitation, I covered this up with the Halloween Rub On done one DSP and then punched out with the Wide Oval and mounted on a 1 3/4 inch circle. This was then popped up on the stamped image. The tag was just cut out by hand, I attached an eyelet, fed the ribbon through and VOILA!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great Friday!!!!
