Autumn is a magical time of year. There is the changing of the leaves, the air gets crisper and it’s time to break out the cozy sweaters. Decorating is also a highlight for me. The front of my house always showcases colorful mums, cornstalks, hay bales and of course pumpkins. This year I have another special decoration to add, a gorgeous hat made with the Witches Decor Project Kit and Witches Night stamp set.
The kit contains all paper supplies, pre-cut labels and leaves, accessories and complete instructions. Stampin’ Up! also has a video showing step by step how to construct your hat and tips to make sure your project comes out beautifully. The coordinating stamp set, inks and adhesive are sold separately.
Not only do you get to make this stunning decoration but the kit comes with so many extra pieces you can make several other projects to make your Halloween or Thanksgiving extra special.
This card was made using one of the pre-cut labels and an extra Spider Web Doily. I stamped the Happy Halloween image in Elegant Eggplant. Then added two strips of Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and a length of Into the Woods 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon.
Again I used one of the pre-cut labels and added the black jewels from the kit, The Trick or Treat image was stamped using Basic Black Archival ink. I wanted to use a different color palette not typical for Halloween, Elegant Eggplant and Cucumber Crush. Since the archival ink is waterproof I decided to color the image with Aqua Painters and ink pads. Just squeeze the lid and pad together to create a pool of ink, dip the Aqua Painter into the ink and color away! For texture on the two cardstock panels, Decorative Dots and Lucky Stars embossing folders were used. And no card is complete with out a little bling. Black Glimmer paper and a piece of a Spider Web Doily add the perfect finishing touches.
The leaves and acorn cut-outs included with the kit are perfect for a Thanksgiving card. By adding a panel using Into the Woods Designer Series Paper, A Little Something and Acorny Thank You stamp sets, plus a few accessories and you have the perfect Thanksgiving card.
Even though this kit is geared towards Halloween, I think the versatility is incredible and will really take your creativity to new levels. If you have any questions about this kit or anything in the catalog, please let me know. I would love to help!
’til next time!
