Non-traditional Halloween Card

Hello and thank you for stopping by today! I wanted to share a card with you and a mini treat holder in a shape of a hat. Let’s start with the card that was inspired by tree different challenges.

The first one is Sweet Cupcake Inspiration on Rachel’s blog. Cute little witches whispered to me who will be a character of my card (Emma Witch from C.C. Designs – gift from friend). But I didn’t know how to coordinate witch and colors of the cupcake… Usually when we create a Halloween themed card we chose traditional for this season colors (green, purple, orange, black). I think these colors are so much fun, but about  trying something different? Why not choose fall colors – warm and cozy. Thank you to Rachel for giving me an opportunity trying something new!

Tall Card Witch

Now to the second challenge – it’s Three Clovers Thursday Challenge. And lucky me that this week Kerry and her DT have a wonderful sketch to play with. It was a great help for me, and since I missed so many challenges from Kerry it was a chance to catch up on some of them.  Thank you Kerry and all your DT ladies!

Hat Open

And the third challenge is a brand new at ATS Wednesday Challenge blog. For this week you need create a Tall Card. How tall did I go – 7 inches! I wonder if I can go taller… maybe I will try one more card and if it will look good I will share it with you. Thank you to Christine and her DT for chance to participate in their challenges.

And of course I am very excited to tell you about this Witch Hat Treat Holder (you can find tutorial here). The idea of this amazing craft belongs to a very talented lady (Kuku is her name on YouTube) whose tutorial I always watch on YouTube! Wow! She has lots of brilliant ideas! I didn’t have any special tools, so I used a pair of compass, scissors, and Tombow glue. Maybe that is why my hat doesn’t look as pretty…

I hope that you are not tired of the very long post. Thank you so much for reading it and leaving your kind comments! That is all for now, I will be back soon.

Happy crafting,


Здравствуйте дорогие гости и читатели моего блога. Спасибо, что заглянули ко мне. Вот такую открытку и шляпку (а внутри конфетки) мне бы хотелось показать вам сегодня. Начну с открытки, на ее изготовление меня вдохновили 3 разных блога:

Rachel’s blog, в очередной раз картинка с вкусненькими пирожными подсказала мне тему открытки и цвета. Когда я определилась с персонажем (симпатичной ведьмочкой), я долго сомневалась с выбором цветовой гаммы. Обычно ведьмочки ассоциируются с праздником Halloween и традиционными для этого цветами такими как зеленый, оранжевый, фиолетовый, черный. Но я решила поэкспериментировать и выбрать теплые цвета осени, по-моему не плохо получилось?

–  Эскиз для открытки я нашла на блогe Three Clovers Designs. Все-таки здорово, когда в помощь нам открыточникам придумывают замечательные эскизы. Хотя не всегда удается следовать первоначальной задумке, но главная это идея!

– Hа блоге ATS Wednesday Challenge было такое задание – сделать высокую открытку. Я даже измерила свою – в общем у меня 7 дюймов (18 см) получилось. Может быть на выходных пофантазирую и придумаю открытку повыше, ну поживем-увидим.

А вот шляпку, в которую можно сложить конфетки, придумала одна замечательная рукодельница. Ее мастер-классы всегда меня вдохновляют и поражают оригинальностью и мастерством! Вот здесь по этой ссылке я посмотрела мастер-класс шляпки. Специальных инструментов у меня не было, я использовала циркуль, ножницы и клей. Может потому моя шляпка далека от идеала…

Вот пожалуй и все  на сегодня. Спасибо за ваши комментарии. Всего Вам самого добpого и отличных Вам выходных,
