Kitchen Witch: Day 7 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello my fellow Halloween Fanatics! I have a less-creepy project today, but I feel it's just right for Halloween and it's roots.

This looks complicated, but I promise you, it's not. I started off with the Apron Die from Dreamweaver Stencils. I chose 5 coordinating papers (from DCWV) and cut the apron out 5 times. I also have the Apron stencil, so I applied it directly to my paper with ink, so that when I laid out my freshly cut pieces, they would be placed properly.

This photo shows the process. I played around with which pieces I wanted where, and then I ran them through my little "X" sticker maker from Xyron. This worked out really well because some of those pieces are teeny. But inking the image, and using the "X" made getting these pieces in the correct spots a snap!

I'd like to point out that the stencil and die are the exact same size, so fitting the pieces on top of each other were not a problem at all.

My paper already had the candy at the bottom, and I added some more with my candy corn stamp from Inkadinkado. My sentiment was done with a little font set that I've had for ages. I really wish I had a pentagram stamp or 2 though. Does anyone have any? Where can I get some? I think that would have been really perfect on this card. I am playing with the idea of making a darker version of this, with a cauldron. What do you think? Thanks for all the great feedback I've been getting so far! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping  by. Have a fang-tastic day!


I am loving today's project... I agree about kitchen witches...

This is WONDERFUL! Everything about your card is perfect! I would hesitate to add anything else, but you could make another version with pentagrams and a cauldron. (A little series, as it were!)

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you.

I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w
