Witchy Wishes

Good Morning Cottage Cutz fans! Angelica here, and I'm so glad you could stop by this morning - have you SEEN the new Halloween dies? Oh my goodness, they arrived in my mailbox this week and I couldn't wait to start creating! 

Pre-order these adorable dies HERE!

Of course, loving Halloween, when I recently traveled to Milwaukee and visited the Miller Brewery, I couldn't help but think their famous "Girl in the Moon" High Life logo resembled a witch.When I saw the "Elegant Witch Legs" die, it totally reminded me of the colors in the High Life logo. 

Luckily, I still had some of my favorite Basic Grey Halloween pattern paper ("Freak" in the Eerie Collection), so using that as my color inspiration, I created this card! I used some olive, cream and orange cardstock to piece my witch legs, and glitter to dress up the stars on her skirt. I cut extra stars and used those to accent the frame. VersaMagic chalk ink in "Hint of Pesto", "Pumpkin Spice" and "Sahara Sand" really brought everything to life. I used just a bit of Distress Stickles in "Peeled Paint" on her boots, and some rustic cream twine for that peek-a-boo bow. I finished the card off with a sentiment from "Lisa Jean Halloween" (Peachy Keen Stamps).

I hope you like it, I'm totally in the mood for Halloween now! By the way, have you joined our Cottage Challenge yet for August? You still have until next weekend to join in the fun and be in the running for a $25 Gift Certificate to the Scrapping Cottage!! I know there's at least one of these new dies that you just have to have!!
