Spellbinders and Stampendous Quarterly Hop...Spookilicious!


Stampendous and Spellbinders are hopping today, and Wendy Price and I are the featured designers for this event! However, before I share my project with you, I want to let you know where you'll find all of the info, rules, and details for this hop, so that YOU will not miss out on some awesome prizes! Spellbinder's rules can be found HERE. Stampendous' rules and info can be found HERE.

I've created this Halloween "lantern", perfect for party or home decor to ramp up the spooky! Here's the info:
Layout the dies from the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics A (S6-001) set on Bazzill Board in black 
Run through die cut machine, repeat this three more times to create the four sides
Cut four pieces of vellum to fit the four sides, stamp each piece of vellum with the Cling Tomb Elements stamp (CRW134) from Stampendous using StazOn Jet Black
Use the Dreamweaver Spider Web (DWLJ816) to emboss a web design on each stamped piece of vellum
Adhere the embossed vellum images to the back of each frame
Ink the front edges of each frame with VersaMagic Cloud White ink
Die cut a gate and two fence pieces for each side from Spellbinder's Garden Gate on Bazzill Board in black
Pat the die cut piece with VersaMark ink
Sprinkle lightly with Aged Black and Aged Silver embossing enamels
Heat set each embossed piece
Use a glue pen to attach the gate and fence pieces to each side
Die cut corner pieces from the Fancy Label Tags Four set from Spellbinders, emboss the pieces with the Aged Black and Aged Silver embossing enamels, cut some branches from the new Woodland Collection Trees die (S3-227)
Use small brads, the embossed label pieces and branches to assemble the sides


Cut four black stripe for the"handle"
Cut four decorative pieces and emboss with Aged Black and Aged Silver embossing enamels
Use small brads to attach the filigree pieces and strips to the lantern
Bring the four strips together at the top and use a small black strip curved into a small circle and a brad to hold it all together
Add some flameless candles for an eerie glow!

Have a "spook-tacular" day!
