Halloween 2014....

  I am over the moon about this card. The eyes, mouth and stars are cut out so the ivory you see if from the interior of the card.  There is an added embossed layer on the moon that really added to its dimension.   

Witch hat box

How fun was this...I can imagine so many different papers, colors and ways to decorate this. I used some clearance paper that had silver foil on lack for the panels on the top.  Then I added the black lace with rhinestones around the brim  (thinking I bought it on sale during my camping trip at a Hobby Lobby).  I added the black feather ad some gray metallic/glittery flowers and the spider crawling down.  I had bought a bag of the plastic spiders at the dollar store and covered him in glue and glitter - the glitter helped it stand out against the black paper plus it made him look awesome.

  This hat is actually a box and the top comes off so you can hide a treat, message or goodies inside.   I think the hat is about 6 1/2" tall x 7 3/4" wide.  I used my silhouette to cut the hat pieces out of cardstock.  I did add a piece of chipboard to the brim of mine to give it a little more weight and stability. Its glued between the layers.

Caawww !!!! Crow card & Pumpkin treat

  Love shaped cards.  I added some twine and a paper flower to the headband. A white pen or a paintbrush end to add the white dots that add a nice finishing touch.

 This pumpkin holds a lollipop inside.  The stem is the stick of the lollipop.  I added leaves and twine to the top of the embossed pieces that are glued together.  Thinking a great table place setting to add a name tag for Fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving.

Window Cards for the upcoming holidays...

 Window cards are a great basic to make for any occasion or theme.  This fall look could be even a Thanksgiving invitation. I used Sizzix Bigz dies and the shutter is from Poppystamps dies.  You can choose to add a Piedemont style top to your window.  There are three choices on one die. the background is embossed brown cardstock. I added in a colored raffia bow and a touch of brown stickles to the tree branches for a little subtle sparkle.  Some of the leaves could be textured and inked.   

 Here is a pretty 3d look for the holidays (this picture is not capturing how nice this is). I think the touch of curtains to the windows really adds that extra detail.  Snow or glitter could even be added to create more of a winter look.  Think about creating one so that you are  standing inside looking out a landscape outside of the window.  A textured brick wall is also a great idea for a background of a window to sit on. I am off to try a Halloween look ....
 Okay so here's the Halloween version.  Thinking about one with ghosts or a skeleton in the window.  The brick wall embossed background would also have looked good with this card.
