Too Cool Demo Team Halloween Showcase

My awesome Too Cool Demo Team shared some spooky projects at our meeting last week.  With Halloween less than two weeks away, I thought you might have fun trying some of these haunting creations! 

Demo - carmen witch shoes

Created by Carmen DeBruce.  These spooky witch's shoes were created with the Top Note Die.  The Basic Black Top Note is folded in half and then it's punched with the 3/4" Circle and 1-3/4" Circle Punches to create the pointy shape of the shoes.  Hand-cut some funky socks, add a Brushed Silver card stock buckle, top it off with a Wicked Cool stamped sentiment, and this one ready to fly!  Carmen CASEd this idea from Marie Shaughnessy at Stamping Inspirations.

Demo - darla witches feet card

Created by Darla Eigenschink.  Here's another witches' feet card, similar to the one I did on my Witches' Feet card.  I'm loving the skirts on these witches SO MUCH.  Darla used the Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, and Pinking Hearts Border Punch to create the dresses, then ran them through the Crimper to give them a ruffled, dimensional look.  The background has spider webs from Wicked Cool and the greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Demo - jodi wicked cool card

Created by Jodi Geers.  She highlighted the Wicked Cool witch's feet (are you starting to feel a theme, here? haha) on this Embedded Embossing card.  The Wisteria Wonder is stamped with the spider web, and the Concord Crush is stamped with the bats.  She added a Tangerine Tango Dotted Scallop Ribbon to the background before running the whole thing through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  Also features: 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch.

Demo - darla owl ghosts

Created by Darla Eigenschink.  Darla also did the Square Lattice Impressions Folder Embedded Embossing technique, this time with some cute little ghosts made by turning the Owl Punch upside-down.  And, I love how she threaded the 1/8" Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon through the black Lace Ribbon Border Punch.  Also features: Wicked Cool, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Rhinestones, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch.

Halloween would be Halloween without some treats!  I love these fun ideas!

Demo - linda bat moon topper

Created by Linda Cox.  Here's another way to use that Owl Punch—make him into a bat!  This little guy is sponged with White Craft Ink and hangs on a Bird Punch branch.  The moon is a 2-1/2" Circle Punch and the whole thing is on a Top Note die-cut, that can be used as a cellophane bag topper.

Demo - linda frank topper

Created by Linda Cox. Frank gets "top" priority on this cute Halloween cello topper.  His image comes from the Spooky Bingo Bits (perfectly sized for the 1" Circle Punch), and the Frankenstein quote is from Smarty Pants.  The scrunchy Vanilla Seam Binding has been dyed with Pumpkin Pie Marker to match.  She used the new It's A Wrap Holidays to dress up the Nuggets in the bag, too.  Also features: Frightful Sight DSP, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Medium Cello Bag.

Demo - carmen matchbox pumpkin  Demo - carmen matchbox pumpkin open

Created by Carmen DeBruce.  The Match Box Die becomes a cute pumpkin treat box with a the help of the Boho Blossoms Punch and a variety of circle punches.  Carmen CASEd this project from Kay Sha at Creations on Paper.  Too cute!

Demo - jodi fry box 1  Demo - jodi fry box 2

Created by Jodi Geers.  A couple quick folds turns the Frightful Sight DSP into a handy "fry box" that's perfect for holding Halloween treats!  Sentiments are from Wicked Cool. Box #1 also features 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Black Scallop Polka Dot Ribbon.  Box #2 features: Cherry Cobbler Scallop Polka Dot Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Modern Label Punch.

Demo - darla milk carton pouch  Demo - darla milk carton pouch 2

Created by Darla Eigenschink.  She used two Milk Carton die cuts adhered together and hole-punched with the Crop-A-Dile to make a cute drawstring pouch.  We saw this fun project at Convention and it's perfect for Halloween!  She used the Simply Scored Tool to make a mini accordion pleated medallion on the front.  The Wicked Cool sentiment was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch twice to make it smaller.  I'll show you this technique on a future card. 

Thank you, Demo Team, for sharing all of your fantastic projects!
