Halloween-y Frame!

Today is "Super Sunday" and instead of participating in a challenge for you, I've decided to show you a 3D item I've been working on. I purchased this frame from the big "W" store quite some time ago and decided to make a cute little halloween decoration that sits on my dining room table with it. Take a look and let me know what you think:

I popped out all of the glass panels that sat in each individual frame so that I could add dimension and 3D items to some of the sections. Here are some close-ups:

Here's what I used on each frame:

BOO frame supplies:
  • Cardstock: More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Tangerine Tango
  • Inks: StazOn Jet Black
  • Stamp Sets: Wicked Cool
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Two Tags Die, Typeset Alphabet Die, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Lucky Limeade

I used MDS2 for this frame:

And finally, here is a close-up of the 3D spider:

I cut (6) using Basic Black Cardstock and the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch. Score (5) of them in half and glue the 1/2's together to form the body. Glue the completed body to (1) flat scallop. Glue a circle cut with the 3/4" Circle Punch to the underneath of the body to form the head. Add googlies for the eyes!

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today. When it comes to Halloween, I enjoy decorating for this holiday as much as I do for Christmas. Enjoy the remainder of your day and thanks for visiting!
