Trick or Treat? You Decide With This Halloween DIY!

Hi! Jeanne here today with a project using some of the new Halloween dies from the Tim Holtz Alterations line with a little twist!

Ever since I was a little kid I've loved scary movies. I like them all but my favorite kind of all are the ones that are so bad they are funny. Let's pretend it's Halloween and Fred the zombie is so excited to go trick or treating. What to wear? He'd scratch his head but that would be a bad idea. Light bulb moment! He'll be a Mummy!!!

I found some pattern paper that looked like it would make a good sky for my scene. I added some paint to make clouds and then splattered it a bit with white paint. To make the spooky bushes I used 661589 Sizzix Thinlits Twisted Edge along with my Big Shot machine. I spattered a bit and smudged on some more white acrylic paint to give it a little texture.Trick or Treat? You Decide With This Halloween DIY!

I used Sizzix 661587 Thinlits Halloween Words to make my phrase. I love how these dies make the cutout word but also that it makes a cute little thin word too!

Here is my background all put together.

To create my zombie "mummy" I started out by die cutting 661590 Sizzix Bigz Lost Zombie from kraft cardstock with my Big Shot machine. See below for the die cutting sandwich used for Sizzix Bigz dies. I added masking tape (I used both 1/4" and 1/8" widths to make it look more random).

I die cut the Lost Zombie again from patterned paper and cut out his pants because we can't have a mummy out trick or treating without pants... that would just be wrong. Unfortunately for Fred the only pants he could find was a pretty pink polka dot pair. No worries, he can still be scary in pink. I added some sponging and doodles to finish my card.

Cutting sandwich directions:

The recommended die cutting sandwich for Bigz dies is (bottom up) Cutting Pad, Bigz die, paper, Cutting Pad. Run this sandwich through your Big Shot machine.

The recommended Sizzix die cutting sandwich for Thinlits and Framelits dies: Sizzix Magnetic Platform (or the Precision Base Plate), Sizzix Cutting Pad, paper, die (cutting side down), Sizzix Cutting Pads. Run this sandwich through your Big Shot machine.

Hope you enjoyed my project! Have a great day!
