We are getting closer and closer to Halloween. I am trying to continue my challenge of posting every day until Halloween. Today’s post is a simple card. I love this vintage, naughty witch. I made this card to sit beside the punch bowl at a Halloween party. The sentiments and the circle design are from Papertrey Ink, but I don’t know where the lovely witch is from. If you do, please let me know.
My friend Darcy showed me this cute little Halloween treat bag. I just had to make one for myself (not sure who I’m going to give this one to). How much simpler can you get? Easy peasy for those last-minute class treats. The kids can even do it all themselves. 🙂 I used glue dots to adhere the googly eyes. Stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with black ink and mounted it on green cardstock then adhered it to the bag with double stick tape. I folded the top backwards and sealed it with tape. Fill with candy and then you’re done within 5 minutes… tops!
The stamped sentiment is from a retired stamp set from The Angel Company.
Since this is the week before Halloween, I am going to have a week of Halloween projects. I will kick the week off with this witchy women. I love this witch from the Stampinbella line of stamps. I made her in mind for a submition into a marker challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks and a spooky challenge at Divas by Design. Both are very creative blogs that hosts weekly challenges. This week Crafty Chicks was devoted to coloring. I think my witch is just fabulous! I used DCWV cardstocks and Copic markers for coloring. I hi-lited her dress in several areas with Stickles. The photo doesn’t really pick up her sparkle. The sentiment “Best Witches!” is from Stampin’ Up! I plan on sending this card to my new friend Emily S. She was with me when I was coloring my witch.

If You Dare
And, for a limited time, order the special Jack-O-Lantern cardstock assortment pack. The Jack-O-Lantern Assortment Pack contains four sheets each:
Apricot, Onyx, Pumpkin, Squash, Toffee
I made several new Halloween Cards and listed them on my Etsy site. This is one of my favorites. I used printed and solid colored cardstock from DCWV. I stamped the raven (source unknown) and the tag sentiments (from Papertrey Ink) in black ink. It just goes to show what you can make with a few layers of cardstock, ink and a couple of stamps. 🙂
Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead
I saw this today on the blog Holiday Snob and just had to share it with you. I just LOVE the Wizard of Oz (and sometimes feel the Witch of the West got the short end of the broom stick). 🙂 The directions to make it are pretty easy. I may just have to make a pair to sit on my front porch under my door bell.
