Halloween Wreath


Greetings Fellow Crafters

A big Hello to my newest follower.  Thanks to everyone that stopped by for the recent blog hop and left comments.  I hope you are all well and having a wonderful summer.

Materials:
Poppy Stamps Spider Web Border,  Small Blooming Poinsettias, Curious Cats, Halloween Roof & Porch
Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles LG 2¾″ & 2⅜″
Stickles Orange Glitter Glue (flower centers)

My design today started with die cutting the Spider Web Border die with black card stock.  I then attached it to the top of the card.

To create the wreath I took a 2¾″ & 2⅜″ circle die and  I just placed the smaller one inside the larger and die cut them together using white card stock.  Now you have a nice ring to create the wreath.  Die cut 5 Small Blooming Poinsettias with orange card stock and 7 Curious Cats with black card stock.  I just glued the two larger flower pieces together and the two smaller pieces together.  Save two of the larger flowers to attach to the roof piece.   

Now start attaching them around the ring starting with a cat then a flower until you have the ring covered.  I also tucked a few leaves behind the smaller flowers. 

I am using the Roof die as a hanger for the completed wreath.  Die cut the Halloween Roof & Porch with black card stock and attach the two orange poinsettias at the bottom end of the eves.   Die cut the orange letters (SCARY) from the Scary Background die and glue as shown.  Now attach the wreath to the roof piece I just glued it where two cats sort of lined up with the orange flowers and then attach to your card.

Halloween BOO


Wow it has been warm here, finally we are having a cool down.  Really I should not complain since most of the time it is cloudy and raining.

A big hello to my latest follower and of course everyone who stops by for a visit.

I am not sure but I am guessing this design would fall under the clean and simple area.  Very quick to produce just die cut everything and glue letters to each ghost, add the hat and pumpkin and layer the card with the orange, black and white framing.

Materials:
Memory Box Ghost Trio
Cheery Lynn Witch's Laundry (hat)
Impression Obsession Pumpkin
Poppy Stamps Scary Background (BOO letters)

Halloween Witches To You


Greetings everyone, hope you are all fine and in good health.  I know what is it with the Halloween cards.  I just keep finding fun things to design.  I die cut twice the skirt and then attached them together and added so stars.  I thought it would be fun to have a dangling spider and of course a witches means of transportation. Very easy and quick to design.

Thank you for all the comments and taking the time to stop for a visit,  hope I have gotten to all your blogs.

Materials:
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles Large (for skirt)

Haunted Fireplace


Greetings Everyone,

I am totally blaming the new dies from Poppy Stamps for my obsession with the Halloween theme.

To create this design I die cut the fireplace and then stamped a bronze ink color directly over the metal die which really raised the brick pattern.  I then added the rest of my Halloween characters to create the scene. On the yellow fire pieces I edged them with a red ink.

Materials:
Poppy Stamps Classic Brick Fireplace, Warm & Cozy Fire, Spider Web Border
Memory Box Ghastly Ghost, Dangling Spider
Impression Obsession Pumpkin
Cheery Lynn Witches Laundry & Scare Me Cat
Spellbinder brick embossing folder for bottom of card.

Spider Web Delight


Greetings fellow crafter's, a big thanks to my new followers.  Also, hello to everyone who stops by for a visit and those that have time to leave comments.

Today's card would of been a lot easier if I would have had a web die but I don't so I used the Memory Box Creepy Web ( which is a corner die) and die cut it 4 times then glued the pieces together.  The Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles was used for the center circle and I just trimmed the web once I attached it behind the circle.  I then added the Dangling Spider and the Happy Halloween words to complete the design.

Memory Box Creepy Web, Happy Halloween & Dangling Spider
Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles (I used the largest one)
