Witchy Ways

I’ve been so busy working on Christmas projects that I did not do too much for Halloween. Here are a couple of cards that I made, using images, papers, and trims from my stash. The images are from Lisa’s Altered Art.

I used some scraps from my stash, including pages from old dictionaries. I added some sparkle here and there with Diamond Stickles.

BOO!

Today I’m sharing another Halloween project I made for The Crafty Scrapper – a Halloween tag, perfect to tie on a treat bag for a special little ghoul.

I started with a black cardstock base. Then I added a piece of white cardstock that I inked with Distress Inks, embossed, and finally sewed with random black stitches.

I added a vintage postcard image from the idea-ology Halloween Ephemera Pack and a cute little witch from my collection. The bat is from Blue Fern Studios. I inked it and then covered it in black Stickles.

The pumpkin is a Tim Holtz die, as well as the embossing folder I used to give it more texture. Miss Kitty is another image from my stash.

I added dyed cheesecloth and preserved moss at the bottom, and a custom-dyed ribbon to the top.

Tricks and Treats

Today I’m sharing my latest design team project for The Crafty Scrapper – a Halloween ATC holder that uses several items from the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween collection.

I started with two paper lunch bags that I folded to create the interior pockets. Then I attached them together with by stitching on two burlap “hinges.” I decorated the front with papers from the Halloween Paper Stash.

I added some cheesecloth that I sprayed with orange and black Maya Mist (from Maya Road), a cluster of flowers, and an idea-ology Crypt Cameo. A black tulle bow gives a spiderweb effect.

They Come in Pairs

I had another spooky image of twins, so I made a little Halloween hanging.

I added a frame from Recollections on the front and ruffled crepe paper around the edge.

A sparkly piece of tulle along with some lace and black millinery flower add more texture.

Sisters

I found this spooky image of twins online and knew it would be perfect to feature in a little Halloween shadowbox.

I made the box using an old cereal box, then adhered My Mind’s Eye paper on the background. Ruffled crepe paper, Tim Holtz tinsel trim, and a couple of glittery pumpkins add more texture. The moon is the same that I used on this card, The dangling spider is a sticker I had in my stash and I simply adhered it to a piece of thread.

The black leaves around the top and side are an older Prima product that I’ve been saving for just the right project. And finally, a pair of glittered skulls make the perfect “feet” for my spooky shadowbox.

Here’s a look at my projects on display together:

I added a black fringed crepe paper garland and large millinery rose...
