Halloween banner

Today I'm sharing a fun banner I made using our dies and Halloween stamps. I started by cutting and piercing the pennant die for my base. I then cut out the spiderweb die to layer over my pretty pansy layer. Next I used our steel rule letter does to cut out the word BOO. I stamped over the top with our eyes background stamp. I popped those up on each pennant. For my end pieces I colored in the trick or treat flying monster and the little mummy ATS stamps using our color burst pencils. For the mummy I used a gray pencil and then used the blending stick to make him look a little weathered.
For my little monster I wanted him very vibrant so I used bright greens and blues. I also added some yellow for his wings.  The colors blended very well. I think it also was a good contrast to his pumpkin trick or treat bag. 
I then used our press punch to make the holes for my limeade splash ribbon. I added some silver sequin thread to the centers of the pennants for a little sparkle. Now I have a festive Halloween Banner to hang up in my office when we have the little kids come trick or treating from the preschool. 
Here is a picture of the entire banner all laid out. We will be making this at the next Fun Stampers Journey class at This N That Scrapbooking in Chino Hill on October 18th at 6:00 pm.  You can call the store to sign up, (909)464-1108.

October specials and a new mini catalog

I can't believe we are already in October.  The year is going by so fast.  I had a blast sharing the Journey the last month at the Los Angeles County Fair and now I am ready to share the new mini catalog and specials for October.
If you love planners you don't want to miss our new catalog which you can view here.

It is full of some wonderful new stamps and planners to help you get ready for the new year while still fulfilling your creativity with all the new accessories and options to add to your journals.  

We also have a special for all your memory keeping needs this month.  As we start the Holiday season we all have lots of items we will need to scrapbook so you can take advantage with our Amazing Memories Sale.
Here is the list of all the items on sale.  You can use this list to look through your catalogs or go online and view them all here,

And if all these items aren't amazing enough you will also see in the mini catalog we lauched a new die cutting machine that is lighter and smaller then the Journey Platnium.  It is great for travel and you get an exclusive die set that only comes with the machine.  Well, with a new machine we had to add a new Stater Kit option to include the new machine.  The Amaze starter kit will normally be $149.99 but for the month of October you can get this kit for only $99.00.
If you would like to join my Blooming Ink Masters Team you can find our more information on this kit and the other options available at www.funstampersjourney.com/Nikki.
