Halloween Wishes


It's that time of the month, folks! Another Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party. I'm excited about this one simply because I now have an excuse to go crazy over Halloween and not fret over Christmas! For my project I went back to an earlier (Christmas) project of mine called My Christmas Village. I referred to Mynnette's cascading card tutorial over at Technique Tuesday and gave it a spooky twist with the colours of the blog party.



I had so much fun with this project and there are so many cute elements thanks to some awesome Spellbinder dies (l-o-v-e- them!). Enough rambling, here's my project:

The patterned papers are by Fancy Pants "Oct 31st"  6x6 pad. Unlike my Christmas project, I did not cram all kinds of everything into this one.

A couple of Jack-o-Lanterns, a left boot and a pointy hat - that's it! And I call it being CAS!

Upfront I have a cat and a couldron. These witchy shapes were cut using Spellbinders Witches' Brew dies.  For the eyes and flames I used some orange paper from the Fancy Pants pad. The greeting is from WMS Hocus Pocus set cut with Spellbinders Label 4. Then I threw in 3 black pearls... newt's eyes! 

I lined the middle compartments with purple patterned papers from "Oct 31st" and added a couple of pumpkins next to the witchy paraphernalia  - also cut with Spellbinders Jack O'Lantern dies, inked with TH's Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen distress inks. 

Here's my favorite bit - a witch on a broomstick flying against a full moon. I popped her up on some foam tape. 





















I lined the sides with some grey CS and stamped the fence, birds and bats from the Hocus Pocus and Gracie at Halloween set.


The back looks like this. I've made some space for a message because I actually plan to give this away. There's that missing right boot and the fence is from Hocus Pocus. Not sure why the ribbon looks blue in the photo. I'm sure it was purple when I picked it...spooky!

Supplies:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse "Hocus Pocus" and "Gracie at Halloween"
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, TH Distress Inks: Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen
Spellbinders Dies: Witches' Brew S4-282 ; Jack O'Lanterns S4-281 ; Labels 4  S4-190 ;  Standard Circles LG  S4-114


Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you in a bit with another little something. 

Beijinhos!

P.S. Fly over to Make It Monday #112 for tons of fab creations. You won't be disappointed!
