Big Shot and Halloween

I was visiting my sister this weekend, and we decided to play a little bit with my new Big Shot accessories. She also has a Big Shot, so I didn’t have to cart that along with me on my drive to Southwest Florida.

The cards were cut out with the Sizzix Movers and Shapers die, one with a three-hole insert and the other with a one-hole insert. I “borrowed” the idea for the witch card from my friend, Rosemary. After sponging a big circle lightly with More Mustard ink on the upper right-hand corner of a 4-inch by 4-inch piece of white cs, I punched a circle template with a 1 ¾ inch circle punch. I then sponged inside the circle more firmly – forming the moon. I sponged the rest of the square with Not Quite Navy. The fancy witch is from an Inkadinkadoo Halloween set I bought last year. She is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx, as is the sentiment. The three spiders, from PTI’s Spooky Sweets set were stamped through the small holes onto the inside white piece.

The scarecrow on the other card is from a brand-new Debbie Mumm autumn set, as is the pumpkin on the inside. Both are stamped with Palette Noir Black and then colored with Prismacolor and Copic markers. The DP behind the scarecrow is from a Debbie Mumm DP pad called Harvest and Holiday.

The two candy containers were made from the Sizzix Matchbook XL die from Stampin’ Up. After punching out the centers with SU's curly label punch, I glued some acetate over the openings and put the circle sentiments, both from PTI’s Spooky Sweets set, to one side of the hole so you can see the candy inside.
