Halloween Blog Hop ~ Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Halloween Blog Hop! If you just happened upon my blog today you can start at Angela's Blog to hop from the beginning. If you came here from Becky's Blog you are in the right place!

There are a number of reasons that I love Halloween, the first is that it shares the same month as my birthday! I also love dressing up and now dressing up my kids too. It also happens to be in the fall which here near Chicago, IL is just GORGEOUS this time of year.

For today's project I decided to show a little Halloween Decor that I made last fall. When we were pulling all of the stuff out of the boxes this little beauty popped up and I decided she had aged quite well, and I like her even more!

I cut this frame and silhouette from the Happy Hauntings cartridge, have I mentioned how much I LOVE this cartridge? I used a vellum as my background piece to let the light shine through and really pop the silhouette!

I originally cut the witch out of plain orange card stock and it looked okay but I felt it needed something... so I grabbed my Xyron 510 sticker maker and my Martha Stewart copper glitter. I just ran the cut through my Xyron upside down so the FRONT would be covered with adhesive. Then I coated it with the glitter. LOVE this trick! Then I popped her up with some Helmar black Zap Dots for a little dimension. I also popped the bats on the side of the frame up also.

I think this turned out really cool and I love the way it looks in the window too.
