Styletech blog hop

Hi everyone,  I'm participating with the Designer Craft Connection blog hop and this month we are working with Styletech Craft.  They have a wide variety of craft vinyl in a variety of styles and colors.

Halloween is coming.  Are you ready?  See how I used Styletech vinyls to create an assortment of Halloween party themed decorations.

I found this spider frame last year and thought it needed some altering.   I used etchallⓇ etching crème on the glass (etching directions can be found here), then I painted the frame with Prima Marketing paints.

To decorate the frame, I die cut Purple vinyl for the graveyard scene.

I placed Silver vinyl on black cardstock then die cut it with a pennant banner.

Next, I die cut letters from Copper vinyl and placed them atop the banner.

All pieces were added to the spider frame along with a trio of ghosts.

Next, I die cut letters from the Copper Vinyl.

And added them around a large goblet.

Finish by wrapping Purple vinyl around the stem and adding ghosts along the base.  Add clothes pins to the goblet's edge to hold tulle, then fill the goblet with candy.

Finally, no party is complete without candy gift bags, right?

Using Spellbinders dies, I die cut Purple, Copper and Olive vinyls.

Cutting orange cardstock 4" x 4".  Each was scored in half to create the candy bag toppers.  Silver vinyl was adhered to each topper and the die cut elements added to the corners.  Phrases were stamped on Olive vinyl with StazOn Piano Black Ink - no smearing!!  Each phrase was then die cut and added to the bag toppers.

Candy was added to bags and the toppers were then attached.

Please stop by the Designer Craft Connection blog for a list of designers participating in this blog hop.

Thanks for stopping by.
