"Witch Craft"

Hi, I'm Tina, and it's my day to show off another super cute Halloween file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!!  I couldn't resist this Happy Pumpkin Witch!  She looks vintage and I simply love the easy way these layers went together!  

I embossed the hat with the Spiderweb folder, and stamped a Peachy Keen face on her… although the sweet face she is designed with is adorable too!!

I placed this cute Pumpkin witch on a cellophane bag with a Halloween Boa I made for my mom, and tied with a Halloween Black ribbon!!

Check out this cute file as well as PPPR's other spooky Halloween files!!  They are so easy to put together as the pieces fit together perfectly… so if you have to make a quick "last minute" Halloween Treat…these are your go-to files!!

Be good to yourself!

Good Morning!

Hope you are having a great week.  I have a fun card to share with you today.  I made it for a friend who recently had surgery.  I thought it would cheer her up.  

To make my card I used the Star Spangled Card Cutting Files. I sized it to 5.50 x 5.50 to make it the square shape.    The flourish is from the Flourishes 2 Cutting Files.  It is free until Thursday night.  The scalloped circle is from the Scalloped Circles Cutting Files.  The Scalloped Border is from the Borders 2 Cutting Files

Don't forget that there is the NEW Trick or Treat Challenge going on right now. 

Have a great week!

Happy Halloween

Hi, and Happy Sunday!

Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. I hope everyone is doing well.
Today I would like to share a little Halloween décor. I had so much fun making this and the PPPR 3D Witch Hat Cutting File is so simple to put together. The cute little skeleton head is from PPPR Skeleton Couple Cutting Files.  I covered the skeleton head with Mod Podge and than added Martha Stewart glow in the dark glitter.  I used the top left flower from the PPPR Flower Assortment Cutting Files. After I glued the  layers of the flowers together I sprayed it with water and started crunching up each layer. After the flower dried I sprayed it with  Glimmer Mist. For the trim of the hat I took a smaller circle and welded it to the inside of hat base. I hope that makes sense. 

How I got the  skeleton head to stand up.
What I used:
 Skeleton Couple Cutting Files
Flower Assortment Cutting Files
PBD "Guess Who" Stamp Set
Ranger Archival Black Ink
Clear Embossing
Glimmer Mist
Mod Podge
Martha Stewart glow in the dark glitter
