Well, it's that time. Time for me to start showcasing my pieces for my favorite holiday, Halloween. I came up with this project for a demonstrator newsletter that I'm being showcased in. I call it my Spooky Tree Display and scrapbook page.

This piece is a dual purpose piece. Use it as the display before and for Halloween and use it for a scrapbook page after the holiday! How's that for being creative?!

Tutorial_2

 

Cut out tree form template with either Hobby Blade or Paper Snips.
Then trace with pencil onto a piece of Basic Black card stock.


Tutorial_3



Using your Paper Snips cut out the tree form following your pencil marks. Don’t worry if you don’t cut exactly on the lines, bumps will add character to the design and make yours unique!

Tutorial_5



Take a piece of the White Vellum paper, lay it under your cut out window pane. Trace with pencil the outlines of the window areas. This
will help you position the rub-ons and stamps correctly. Set the tree form aside.

Cut the vellum a bit smaller than the window panes.

Tutorial_7

Choose the rub-ons and or stamp sets you
wish to fill up your windows If you choose
rub-ons cut out all the images you wish to use.


Position your rub-ons, and or stamp the images
with Stazon in the windows. Set aside.

Tutorial_8

Be sure window art is dry. Then adhere the vellum image side up to the back of the tree form window frame using Dotto, to easily reposition, if needed. Set aside.


Tutorial_13

Ink up the Frightful Fence wheel using VersaMark.

Roll wheel across the Basic Black Card stock. Set aside to dry.

Using a Hobby Blade cut out the
Frightful Fence following your VersaMarked image as a guide. The gate
will lay against tree stand.

Tutorial_12




Cut a slit from the base of the tree trunk up an inch and a half.

From the scraps cut a strip of Basic Black Card stock 1.5” x 5.75” for your stand.


Optional:
Add door to front of window (so window is shadow of door).

Score 1/8” in by hinge and adhere with mono adhesive to window frame in the lower right corner.

Tutorial_14 After Halloween you could use it as a component of a scrapbook page.

•  Use Big Shot and Pumpkin #4 for the Pumpkin on base of tree. 
•  Embellish with text and your own pictures.
•  Enlarge the template making the window      panes larger and display Halloween pictures inside

I'll have the kit, which contains all the consumables available for purchase!
