Halloween Burlap BOO Banner

Today, I wanted to share my Halloween Burlap BOO Banner! So I collected most of my supplies at my Michaels Store in Schaumburg (IL) - SHOUT OUT to them!! This is what I created....

Project Supplies:
Paper - Strathmore® (Mixed Media Pad), DCWV (Burlap Paper Pad) and DoodleBug Designs (Haunted Manor Collection)
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Custom Dies by Spellbinders® (Banner {die}tails Nested Die Set) and Spellbinders® Creative Arts (S4-333 Spider Web (retired), S5-053 Pumpkin Accents and the Grand Calibur Machine)
Stamp - JustRite® Papercraft (Spider Web Background Cling Stamp)
Inks – IMAGINE Craft®/TSUKINEKO® (Memento Luxe - Wedding Dress)
Coloring - Faber Castell® Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® (Mango and Tangerine), Chalkboard Paint, Pastel Pencils (White and Orange) and Stamper's Big Brush Pens (Walnut Brown, Orange Glaze and Permanent Green Olive)
Tools - Fiskars® (Amplify™ Mixed Media Scissors) and We R Memory Keepers (Crop-A-Dile)
Glitter - Ranger Ink (Stickles)
Trim - May Arts (Green Netting and Ghost) and Recollections (Jute)
Adhesives - SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L® (Crafty Power Tape, 3D Foam Squares and Dodz™ Medium)
Other: Googlie Eyes

Let's get started...
I started with the top panel (the letters) since they were embellished the most... I used Mixed Media paper because it can handle anything - water, paint, coloring, stamping...EVERYTHING! LOL!

For colors, I blended my Faber Castell® Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® in two colors (Mango & Tangerine) and my water mister. LOVE how it turned out and so easy :)

Next I add these amazing self-adhesive and re-positionable stencils from Hazel & Ruby. You can use them over and over again! They come in different alphas and shapes. I used Blindside set.

Then I covered the entire surface with black chalkboard paint. For my banner, I did about three coats with dry time in between coats. While damp, I took off the letters and wipe them clean with a baby wipe. Set aside all to dry.

As those panels are drying, I cut and embossed the base banner using burlap paper from DCWV with my ribbon tail dies and the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.

OR hand cut your banners using Fiskars Amplify Mixed Media Scissors - cuts like BUTTAH!!

Pictured below are some ways I embellished the top panels of my banner....stamping, cut/embossing dies, stenciling, coloring and punching holes for the jute.

Another look at the finished project...

A majority of materials were purchased at my local Michaels Store! I finally used up my gift card that I had for at least two years - LOL!

With the gift giving season being around the corner, I became aware of Raise and their cool concept!

"Now more than ever, people need to get the most out of their money. Raise helps put the purchase power back into the hands of the consumer, and that’s what giving yourself a raise is all about." - George Bousis, Founder & CEO

I love that! What is Raise? Raise is an online gift card marketplace where you can sell gift cards for cash or buy discount gift cards to all of your favorite brands. Launched in 2013, makes changes in the gift card industry. Saving money is often associated with discounts so they are setting out to redefine the conversation. Interested? GO check them out - they have Michaels gift cards as well as other craft gift cards!!

Hope everyone has a FUN & SAFE Halloween! Excited to see some cute goulies at our doorstep!

Thanks for stopping by!
