It’s a Halloween Blog Hop!

Oct 2015 Blog Hop Button ResizedIt’s beginning to feel very much like fall in my neck of the woods, and I finally feel like playing with my Halloween stamps.  Good thing – ’cause that’s the theme of our Blog Hop this month!  If you’ve arrived from Di’s blog, c’mon in for a visit; and if you’re just joining us, grab a cup of Witch’s Brew and hop along with us… 10-1-15

The Witches’ Night stamp set was designed to coordinate with the Witching Décor Project Kit, but it’s a great set to use with other projects as well!  I used several of the images in today’s card.  I began with a base of Tangelo Twist.  The next layer is Blackberry Bliss that’s been randomly stamped in Basic Black with the spider web and flying bat images from the set.  A Spider Web Doily was layered on top of that.  I stamped the Trick or Treat focal piece in Versamark ink on Whisper White and heat embossed it with black powder.  A second image was stamped and heat embossed and I fussy cut the raven and layered it over the original image with dimensionals.  The ’31’ was punched from the second piece with the 3/4″ punch popped up, and colored in with the Tangelo Twist marker.  I love the way the black embossing is shiny -makes me think of trick-or-treating on a chilly, dark, rainy, night!  I matted the focal image on one of the leftover pieces from the Witch Hat kit.  The kit, unfortunately, has sold out, but I think I’ve made a pretty good case for using the stamp set for other projects! 10-1-15A

Here’s a closer view of the focal image.  I wanted to use the Lots of Labels framelits to cut it out so that it matched the mat, but I didn’t want to cut the Raven’s foot off. (ewwww!)  So I positioned the framelit over the image and traced around the inside, then fussy cut it so I didn’t have to cripple the poor bird!  LOL…

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Now, off you go to see what Kathya is going to haunt you with.  An ingredient list is below and in case you get lost in the dark, a list of all our hoppers is also below.  Happy Halloween!!

    Very creative and Halloweeny. I love the label and I also (as did the bird, I’m sure) appreciated the care you took to leave him intact. Yep, those are great colors.

  3. What a beautiful color combo Barb, will have to try that! Your card is beautiful! Great blog hop theme!

  4. Ooooh, I love the Blackberry Bliss with the Tangelo Twist–perfect for Halloween. You did an amazing job with the black embossing on the stamped image, too. I’ll have to give that a try!
