It is time for another Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! We are a group of demonstrators from around the world who love to share what we’ve created. We hoping to provide you with some inspiration! The theme for today’s Hop is Halloween. I decided to share a Bewitching Halloween Card. I, rarely, purchase Halloween stamps because of the limited time that I can use them. However, I do love the the Bewitching Stamp Set and Witch Hat Builder Punch as I can use it for cards, treat bags and boxes.
I wanted my Halloween card to have the look of a “spooky forest” or woods. To achieve that effect, I paired the Bewitching Bundle with the Aspen Tree Dies. Then, I cut the tree die from Basic Black. The background was created on a layer of Very Vanilla with Blending Brushes. The colors were Highland Heather, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. Witch’s feet and a few spiders hanging from the tree branches contributed to the look of a “spooky forest.” Stampin’ Dimensionals used to combine the layers, added interest and depth to the card front. A witch’s hat, colored with Parakeet Party, Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends adds the final touch. Since the Bewitching Stamp Set does not have sentiments, I used the “Boo” from Cottage Wreaths.
