Falling for Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the Falling for Halloween Blog Hop. Thanks for joining us to enjoy all the wonderful crafty inspiration for the fall and Halloween season.

You should have arrived here from Beth's blog. If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go to Maria's blog to start so you don't miss any of the fantastic fall projects we have to share with you.

For my project, I made a trio of cards:


Materials Used:
  • Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges
  • Imagine cartridge The Good Old Days
  • Reminisce Hallowe'en Greetings paper
  • Misc patterned cardstock
  • Black cardstock
  • Black seam binding
  • Webster's Pages red ribbon
  • Misc hat pins
  • American Crafts white twine
  • Misc antique buttons
  • Martha Stewart course glitter
  • Black stitching
  • October Afternoon Witch Hazel Miscellany wording
The hat pins I used were traded during the last swap I was in.  All the hat pins used on these cards were made by the talented Caffinee.

I added stitching for added interest and texture.

The phrase "Beware!" is from October Afternoon's Witch Hazel Miscellany kit.

The glitter used is Martha Stewart's course glitter.


The witch on this card is printed from the Imagine cartridge The Good Old Days.

 
This is the sheet of paper that inspired my creations:
The sheet is by reminisce and is called Hallowe'en Greetings.  I can still make quite a few more cards just from this one sheet of paper!
