Welcome back fellow crafters!!! I'm VERY sad to say that this is my last Halloween project this year :(! I just LOVE Halloween, it's always been such a MAJOR MAJOR part of my life ever since I was a little kid!! My mom and I use to stay up ALL NIGHT working on my Halloween costumes!! Even in my mid 30's it's just as important!!!
This weeks design team project for Regina at The Cutting Cafe was SO much fun!! We had the choice of ANY Halloween file!!!! Okay, so I have to warn you; I actually didn't choose a Halloween file for my base project. I chose to work with her House Shaped Card BUUUUT..... I turned it into a haunted house and used Halloween printable stamps to embellish! Here's the end result!!
AWESOME RIGHT!?!?! I LOVE IT!!! Okay so here's the breakdown; again, I used the House Shaped Card. It came with two full windows and the little arch-way window, but I decided to add three more windows!! I used the trim in the middle and shortened it to make trim under each window and the bricks for the steps under the door. The door was embossed with a Sizzix wood grain embossing folder and I used stickles for the door knob. The witch is from Pazzles Craft Room.
I used black glitter paper for her outfit and she had to have red glitter shoes!!! The ghosts, bats, fences and broom that is sitting against the cauldron are from The Cutting Cafe Halloween and Fall Colored Basic Images Printable Stamp Set. So I did actually use a Halloween file for this!! With those I converted them to an SVG file and loaded them into SCAL2. I like to build and size everything in there and have a complete rendering of the card before I start cutting. Like this:
Here's the ghosts:
The pumpkin trio is from Pazzles craft room and so is the cauldron. Again, the adorable broom is from The Cutting Cafe Halloween and Fall Colored Basic Images Printable Stamp Set.
And here is the inside:
