This is my blog where I share things I create with my Stampin' Up products and stamps. I love to make cards, 3-D projects and scrapbook pages.

I have had fun using vellum in the Spider Web Embossing folder. It is perfect for making luminaries. I used the Fancy Favors box and Basic Black Cardstock to make both of these luminaries but I cut the box in half and inserted a 4" strip of vellum that I had embossed. 2 strips of Pumpkin Pie cardstock punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch are used to cover up the seam. I could have added other embellishments but I really like it the way it is. Of course, since the luminaries are made of paper I used the little battery operated candles. I found 2-packs at the Dollar Tree so they aren't expensive at all.
The second Luminary is made with the 2 1/2 inch circle punched in the front and a square of vellum that was embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder placed behind the circle. I used some of the gorgeous Chunky Glitter around the hole and added a Glimmer Brad to hold the ends of the pleated Pear Pizzaz 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon. I gathered a piece of the fun new Waffle Paper to put around the top of the box. I really love working with the Waffle Paper, it pleats and gathers so nicely and gives your projects the bling we love this time of year. I know you will be seeing lots of it in the next couple of months!
The spider is from a package of glow in the dark plastic spiders I bought at the $$ store too. Well, only a few days till Halloween and they will be a busy few days. I may not get many more Halloween projects posted this year. I enjoy the fun decorations and costumes but I think I'm ready to move on to Thanksgiving and Christmas!
