I have several stamping classes scheduled at my house this month, so I decided to dress up some pumpkins for Halloween with some super-neat (I can't call spiders cute, I'm sorry!) Decor' Elements, "Spooky Things" in Black, #120909 $14.95 from the Holiday Mini (pg 8) These also come in Basic Gray if you want a little less dramatic look!
They were very easy to apply to the pumpkins, which I purchased separately at several different discount stores on several different occasions (I waited for the largest pumpkin to go on sale 50% off!) My candles I purchased on clearance a couple of years ago (yes, I'm cheap, but being a farmer's wife with 6 kiddos all those years made me that way! smile!) I was bit worried about getting everything smooth with the ridges on the pumpkins, which is why there are no Decor Elements on the middle one, which has the deepest ridges. I was a little creeped out while putting the spiders on the big pumpkin, but I persevered! I happen to HATE spiders, snakes, any of those creepy-crawly things and always yell for my DH on one of my sons to come and kill them for me!
However, these Decor' Elements are just the right solution for someone like me who wants a little Halloween decor' but can't handle any more realistic than this! If you haven't seen our 2010 Definitely Decorative 2011 Catalog, go to my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Website:
Click on the "Shop Now" button on the upper right side of the page, then click on "Home Decor". You will then have choices of "Vinyl Art", "Stencils", "Decor Accents", "Charms & Chains", "Raw Materials", and "Textiles". Lots of great products to explore to decorate your home and gifts to suit your style!
Here's another piece from the "Spooky Things" set I put on my front door:
After Halloween I will just remove this from my door and throw away as they are not re-usable, but at $14.95 for the set of 10, they are VERY economical. I already have some adorable Real Red Decor Elements, "Candy Cane Christmas" #120912 , $14.95 from the same Holiday Mini (pg 36). They also come in Old Olive if that better suits your taste, or you can buy both and mix them together for a true Christmas color scheme!
Until tomorrow, have a GREAT Stampingrox! day!
