A Little Halloween Decor

Hutch halloween 2019 Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

A couple weeks ago or so I shared my hutch set up for the Fall, I had my Fall Social and it was so cute and festive.  Now I wanted to switch it over to Halloween and then I will go back to fall for a bit before I do Christmas.  Here are the decorations I was working on today. Most of the pumpkins I simply turn around so the face does not show when I set it up for fall, so today I just had to turn them back around and voila' a face...Halloween!!! I really wish I had a plug in behind my hutch as I would love to add some lights twinkling amongst everything. A lot of the ghosts and houses light up but I don't want to be changing batteries all the time.

Added since original post...look what I did...I put Monster Bash DSP in the back wall of the hutch...looks so cool, I need to do that more often!!

Trick or treat do what you love Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

The yoga skeletons are hilarious too, and whenever I find this saying I get it.

So I had to switch out my regular crock with my Halloween one...ha! The little apple salt and pepper shaker is perfect with the witch right? Those witch legs, I have missed finding them for the last couple years, I found them this year and got a bunch, they look cute just stuck here and there.

Now I really need to buy some big colored tubs to store my seasonal stuff in so I know which one to grab eh?

I'll be back tomorrow with another gorgeous Cardinal card.

Coffin duck Birds of a Feather www.stampingwithdi.com

...coffins! Such cute little 3-D treats to hand out at Halloween...or how about a 50th birthday party...ha! That would be cute too eh? As you can see the poor little duck is a pirate and has lost his eye...no worries, it is right there on the tag...ha! Those googly eyes are so fun!

This one uses the Monster Bash DSP so they all looked a bit different depending on what spooky face was added. I also added one of the new Monster Bash Enamel Shapes to the tag.  Don't even get me started on that Glittered Organdy Ribbon, it is like a silver galaxy shining on there. Love it, and it ties like a dream! I cut the shape out of one of the bases so I had a pattern in order to line the coffin...so cute.

Fall Social 2019 - Table Goodies

Country INKers Fall social 2019 Studio www.stampingwithdi.com

Now that my 2 weekends of Country INKers Fall Social are over I can start sharing stuff. I have shown you a couple cards but I kept the room under wraps.

Above you can see the room set up. Fun with the red buffalo plaid, it is my go-to every Fall.

Here you can see what met them when they got here. Their cute little swag bag (a fun purse organizer that holds their new stamp sets and supplies). Four cute table goodies.

Country INKersFall social 2019 table goodies test tubes www.stampingwithdi.com

I had grabbed a bunch of these test tubes when they were on a Paper Pumpkin refill. I found a cute box pattern made by my sweet friend Dawn Griffith and I just had to adapt it to fit these tubes, and voila'! Adorable! Thanks Dawn!

I loved these little easel frames I found at a local craft store and just had to get them. I had to order more online as they did not have enough in the store.  I showed me making these daisies the other day...yeah lots of punching, but oh so cute right? The saying is just clipped on there so they can remove that and put a picture if they want.

Last year I had gone to my friend Earleen's house and made something like this and we put candies in the bottom and I could not wait till this year to do it for Fall Social. I found the little trees and reindeer and put them away till now. The snow is hot glued on the lid of the jar. I had wanted to use a glue that dried white underneath but did not find any, they turned out super cute anyway. I added some of our cute Holiday catalog ribbon and added the jingle bells to the container. So cute!

I told the girls they could add some of their swag bag bling later at home if they wanted.

I don't know what was my favorite little table goodie, but these are super cute and so impressive.  Just think how cute these would be at each person's place at Christmas or to leave on a friends desk at work. These definitely took the less time...well unless you count the time it took to get in more of the ribbon...I thought I had ordered enough...well I did I just could not see it sitting right in front of me....ha!  These use the new Mercury Glass Acetate and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die. In fact I am doing a Pop-Up Class Series in November and you will get this bundle when you come...let me know if you are interested.

Here is everything sitting out waiting for their new homes, I forgot to take a picture before I had boxed up all the Virtual packages. But it was fun  making all these. I sure was able to binge a lot of old tv shows that I did not really have to pay attention to...ha! I really think Laverne & Shirley went on one season too long....

Let me know if you are interested in coming to my Country INKers Spring Social March 21 and March 28.  Make sure you sign up for my emails.

House of Wax Fun!

Front of house with gnomes www.stampingwithdi.com #lolasgnomes #vintageblisstriciasamsal

So sometimes I just want to take a class...where I do not have to cut paper for days. So when I saw that Tricia Samsal from Vintage Bliss had posted this darling House of Wax house I knew I had to make one...it just lucked out that I got my new Halloween gnomes in from Lola's Gnomes the day before. They look adorable together....I need to buy some of those black plastic spiders. Wouldn't they look cool climbing on the house?

Tricia & Mandy www.stampingwithdi.com

We put this private class together at the last minute (and the only weekend that worked for Tricia and I was this one) so it was just Mandy and I taking the class. Tricia is so super sweet and uber talented. We all had a blast. It has been too long since I hung out with Mandy, and we laughed so much!

Mandy and me www.stampingwithdi.com

Here is Mandy and I and our finished houses. We put some led lights inside to light them up. I want to find a flickering led candle to stick in mine...with a timer preferably so I don't have to take the lid off all the time.

Let's look at my house up close and personal shall we?

Side of house 1 www.stampingwithdi.com

Tricia brought old sheet music and other cute papers to cover the house and then I grabbed some of the new Monster Bash DSP and some retired Halloween DSP to decorate my house. I loved that we learned how to melt bees wax on the house. Look at the fun drips.

Side of house 2 www.stampingwithdi.com

Aren't the little faces peeping out so cute? That one looks like ET, maybe he came to the house to use the phone to call home?

Roof of house bat punch and circle punch www.stampingwithdi.com

Here is the roof, this fun netting stuff, and then I grabbed an old bat punch, a circle punch and some wire and we added these to the chimney!

Front of house floor wall www.stampingwithdi.com

I loved this moon that Tricia had and the cats that you can't see in this pic...I added old Stampin' Up! DSP that I could just not get rid of, can you see the wood plank floor and orange striped wall paper in the back? Ha!

Windows house www.stampingwithdi.com

This was a fun picture, I peeked in the window to take it. I hung up pictures inside...the furniture arrives next week....ha!

Well I hope you enjoyed seeing my pics as much as I did taking the class. We had a blast and I had fun going around the studio figuring out what else we could add to the house...ha!

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend. Happy September 1, and thanks for stopping in.
