First, a simple project. I used Snapdragon Snippetts build a jack o' lantern eye, nose and mouth sets, resized to fit my solid orange ceramic plates. I played with combinations, then cut them from brown vinyl and applied them to the plates.
I made two. Here is my favorite - the happy pumpkin!
Here is the second plate with a "scary" face.
Which do you like best?
Next, I needed something tall for a shelf display, so I created a "BOO" cubes tower from Snapdragon Snippetts flourished 3d 'b' and 'o' box files.
I initially cut the B and both Os from black card stock, but then decided I wanted a little bit more pizzazz. So I cut a second layout from solid orange card. You can see the main construction steps in the following few images.
I used my rotary cutter and ruler to trim away just the ornate letter square, cut slightly smaller than the original black panel. That way, there is a little bit of black left to frame the orange square on the front.
I used my Distress Ink to "antique" the orange edges a bit....
then glued the cut panel over the black.
To make the three cubes into a stack, I poked a tiny center hole in top and bottom of the top two, and in top only of the bottom. I dressed up a Jack O'Lantern pick and cut it to exact length, then threaded it's wire stem through the holes. I also used a tiny "bean bag" (from black fabric) in the bottom cube to weigh it down a bit.
Next project: to update my entryway with a seasonal saying. An online search turned up the "Witches fly.." poem. Using the text tool, I set up the lines in Vivaldi, then found something spooky to enhance it. This creepy tree is a single shape from the Snapdragon Snippets 3d bare-branched tree design (with side notches smoothed out).
Here it is shown with a colorful Halloween wall quilt hung nearby. (If I were to re-do this project, I would enlarge both the phrase and the tree to the largest my Silhouette would permit.)
Finally, I created this long skinny pillow with Vivaldi text styling tool, then cut it from Clean-Cut Fabric Interfacing. I fused it to the pillow front panel, then machine over-edged each letter so it will last. Then I finished up the pillow with this cool black twill tape fringe.
