3D Witches Boot

3D Witches Boot

Hi everyone! I have a fun and quick post for you today.  I have missed playing along with all the fantastic challenges out there so today I decided to play along with a few of them!  I felt that the Witch High Top Boot from Needles ‘n’ Knowledge was perfect for what I wanted to create today considering we are now in October and Halloween is just around the corner!

3D Pumpkin Carriage

Hi there Core Fans!  It’s Joann and I am really excited to be here today.  Recently my niece was over and wanted to watch the Disney movie Cinderella.   We managed to find an animated copy of the movie and when the horse drawn carriage showed up her eyes widened with excitement.  It was at that moment that I know that I have to make one for her.  We are also doing a blog hop with Petaloo and Xyron so I will be featuring some of their lovely products in the post.

Dr. Dreadful’s House of Potions

Hi everyone,

I have a quick post for you here today.  I was busy decorating for Halloween and I am not really sure why but I ended up in my craft room.  Wonder how that happened!  I guess my husband will have to finish the decorating. lol

I was looking at the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Collection and decided to make a Halloween House for you using their fantastic paper.

The Fashion Witch

Happy Friday everyone, I’m delighted to be back again to share another project with you this week.

For me, nothing says Black and Orange to me like Halloween!  So in keeping with this week’s challenge I set sights on creating a fun version of a Witches Hat and Shoes.  The Hat I thought was an obvious choice but of course, what good fashionable Witch would allow herself to be seen without a new pair of shoes to match!

If you are wondering how to make the cone for the hat it is really quite simple.  You can either go to your local craft supply store and purchase a styrofoam cone and wrap it with the paper you want to use or take advantage of the many tutorials out there that demonstrate how to make a cone.

Also, to give the hat a bit more dimension, I decided to 3-D both the Silly Spider and the Spider Web and include a “spooky-looking” flower with a flower bud that had a similar feeling to a Venus Fly Trap using the Stacker Flowers 4 and 5.

Here is a look at the Witches Hat:

Here is a closeup of the Witches Shoes:

For this project I used the following dies:

E123 – Eccentric circles Embossing Plate

B152 – Miniature Rose

B133 – Lace Light Deco Border

B200 – Celtic Band

SF-5 – Stacker Flower 5

SF-4 – Stacker Flower 4

DL162 – Spider Web

A194 – Going Batty

A189 – Silly Spider

There are just so many fun things you can do with a project like this, the possibilities are endless.  I hope this will inspire you to get creative and perhaps try something new.

Don’t forget to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Black and Orange!

Hi Everyone, Happy Friday!

I am super excited to be here with you today to share a project for this weeks Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge – Halloween.

Halloween cards are just so much fun to make.  I just love the vibrant colors and the fact that they are so easy to add lots of texture and dimension.  For my project, I decided to 3-D the Spooky Tree.  To get this effect all you need to do is die cut the tree several times and score each tree in the middle and glue them together.  You can use as many die cuts as you like but I thought that six looked just about right for this card.

Here is the finished project:

Here is a closeup of the tree:

For this project I used the following dies:

DL193 – Horizon Coved Rectangle Mega Doily

XL10 – Coved Rectangle Classic

E164 – Burble / Cheese Cloth Texture Embossing Plate

DL162 – Spiderweb

B191 – Spooky Tree

A194 – Going Batty

A190 – Scare Me

FRM123 – Enchanted Flight

You still have lots of time so don’t forget to visit the challenge this week and put in your Halloween inspired entry.  The challenge will end on Sunday night at 22:00 Eastern time.
