Are you ready to decorate for Halloween? How about a haunted barn with decked out characters? This barn is from SVGCuts.com and is called – Haunted Barn! I used some retired Stampin Up Halloween Designer Series paper and LOTS of black card stock to create this cute 3-D.
There are some really cute details – the corn stalks, lanterns and bats, to name a few.
And a Haunted Barn needs haunted barnyard animals! I used Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups characters to create my scene. First is Cheepers the Chicken appearing as a zombie.
Brownie the cow is a vampire. His cape was hand cut from washi tape over card stock.
And William the Goat is the devil 🙂 His cape is cut the same way as Brownie’s.
The barn is lit from within and really looks cute at night.
And to make this entire ensemble even better, all the characters are on sale this week!! Happy haunted shopping spree 🙂 Hugs, Fran
Characters in Costumes – Day 2 🙂 And which holiday makes us think of costumes more than Halloween? So starting with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 card, stamped with this awesome image from Stampin Up’s Six Sayings (hostess set in the Holiday Mini)
And here are the characters! Everyone is dressed up in their costume for Halloween and popping up on a Lots of Pops die. The All Season Tree is in the background. The wagon is hand cut.
Cheepers the Chicken is dressed as a cowboy. Chilly the Penguin is wearing an Owl mask. William the Goat is wearing funny glasses and a bow tie. And Cocoa the Horse is dressed up as bandit.
Hope there’s lots of chocolate involved! Take time to check out all the other Characters in Costumes on Karen’s Facebook Page. Hugs, Fran
I’ve been asked to be the guest designer with the “Crazies” over at Crazy 4 Challenges this month! The first challenge is to make a card showing how you’re going to celebrate Labor Day. I will be spending time at our farm having a bonfire – and that means s’mores! I thought I make a card for my niece who won’t be able to join us.
I used Karen Burniston’s Brownie the Cow (we raised black angus!) and Agatha Edges on the front with a SU sentiment from Wetlands. The leaves are from Karen’s All Season Tree.
And here’s the inside – Lots of Pops with a computer generated sentiment.
The logs are from the Pop It Ups Fence Pop Stand and the flames are Cocoa the Horse’s mane and tail and Wiliam the Goat’s goat-tee!
So that’s where I’ll be – sitting with the cows making s’mores!
Check out all the other Crazy’s designs for this challenge and play along! Hugs, Fran
Coming soon – New friends on the farm! Farm 2 Collection has 6 new dies and a clear stamp set. Hanging out on my 4 x 9 card, meet Cocoa the Horse and Snowball the Sheep! They are getting the Barn decorated with Cheepers the Chicken, Brownie the Cow and Virgil the Pig. Cute banner made with Stampin Up’s Flag punch!
And inside – William the Goat (decidedly NOT helping!) He’s in the new Pop It Ups Fence Pop Stand!
This is such a fun collection – on it’s own or in addition to the Farm 1 Collections 🙂 Sneak Peeks of all the new dies are on Karen’s blog today! Hugs, Fran
