There are so many gorgeous paper packs in CTMH's latest Idea Book, it was hard to focus on one for this blog hop. Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine and Moonlight really drew me in. I created a little purse from the new Cricut Artiste cartridge and filled it with spooktacular cards. Check it out:
I used the the Black/Colonial White striped B&T paper from Moonlight to cut out the bag. Using Artiste, 3D Object feature and I cut Fit to Page <3>.3> I also used Artiste to cut out that little Autumn Terracotta circle next to "best witches" with 3D Object feature at 3/4" Shift <2>.2>
The cards are all 3"x3" and I just used my paper trimmer for them. To cut out the "Magic Potions" shapes, I just looked at the Magic Potions stamp set (C1509) and the My Acrylix overlay now tells which Cricut cartridge to use, which page to find the coordinating image and the size to cut it at! WOO HOO CTMH!!! Talk about faster, simpler and easier!
To create the frayed/branchy look on the bag and the OWL card, I used Black Hemp (Z282) and just seperated the strands. I love that they're kind of stiff and witchy looking!
