My Favorite Season!

I love decorating for Halloween, so making papercraft creations to display on my shelves for Halloween is so much fun! I made a simple card using the Toil & Trouble Suite of Products!  It is perfect to add color with Stampin’ Blends…and an added bonus…the framelits cut out both the stamped image from the Cauldron Bubble Bundle and the images from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Gorgeous Grape Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Use an Aqua Painter to create a watercolor wash background using Highland Heather Classic Ink.
  3. Stamp the dots from the Gallery Grunge Stamp Set over the top of the watercolor wash using Highland Heather.
  4. Cut 10 inches of Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, wrap around the Watercolor Paper and secure with a bow as shown. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Cut a 5″ piece of Solid Black Baker’s Twine, thread through the Spider Trinket and secure to the bow with a knot.
  6. Stamp the following images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock:  Witch, Broom, Cat, Cauldron.  Using the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and the coordinating framelits, crop the images.
  7. Color the images with Stampin’ Blends (see colors in supply list below).
  8. Stamp the sentiments onto Basic Black Cardstock using Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, set with a Heat Tool. Snip to size with a Paper Snips.
  9. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

That little witch is just the cutest and so much fun to color.  The new Highland Heather, Basic Black and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends suit the little witch well!
