It’s Wednesday, and Sitting Witchy Poo from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) is back again to celebrate a Happy Hallowe’en and wondering what to do with all her candy. My husband and I just LOVE Hallowe’en! We try to decorate our yard every year for the little ghosts and goblins who come to visit and we give out lots and lots of candy. Our front lawn gets turned into a grave yard for a day with spooky black cats, crows, skeletons, and more. On the porch we put out all of the animated little toys and of course the talking skeletons playing poker at the Bistro table. LOL! The children just love it and so do the parents! LOL!
To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it with Copic Markers listed below. I fussy cut around Witchy Poo leaving just a little bit of white around the top of her body, but going directly to the line for the bottom of her. Flag Banner Dies from Craftin’ Desert Diva’s (restired) were used for the die cut and then the sentiment was stamped onto it. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin was applied around the edges to create a frame around the orange cardstock.
To create the background, Pebbles – Boo! paper was used. I wanted to add something a little extra so I pulled out my Kraftin’ Kimmie – Bats and Moons Stencil and applied Nuvo Glimmer Paste – Amethyst Purple! I just love the way it turned out. The bottom piece of cardstock was cut at 1″ x 5.5″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot was used to go around all of the edges of the top and bottom piece.
Once everything was dry my card was ready to be assembled. I began with a standard white card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I mounted the coloured circles and bats cut at the same size directly on top of the base with 2-sided tape. I did the same with the candy on the very bottom. The image and the sentiment were both popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, to cover some of my paste boo-boos, I added in some candy corn from Dress My Craft – Dessert Mix.
