Trick or Treat dress-up

Hello

I have a fun card to share today using some old Sizzix Original Dies.

I absolutely adore the Sizzix Body Collection of dies and wish I had more, however I thoroughly enjoy the ones I do have and enjoy getting the most out of them.

In this card, I started with 4 bodies and decided they were a group of girls all going Trick or Treating.  I then proceeded to create outfits for each.

Here is each girl individually and the dies used:

Halloween Haunted House

Hello

I have a project to share today which I thoroughly enjoyed making.

WP_20140917_023

I started with a Gelli Print onto waste cardboard for the background and a further print in a different colour for the base of the picture.

I cut the Sizzix Haunted House die in 3 shades of card; black, brown and fawn. I cut sections of the paler die cut for the roof and used the black layer to create a shadow by offsetting it slightly.

I added some detail with a fine black pen to create some “brick” shapes.

I used the Sizzix Tree die on cardboard box card and cut down to create more of a branch effect.

I cut a moon shape out of some white foam and positioned behind the house and branches.

Using the XCut alphabet die, I cut Halloween and arranged and lastly, I added a collection of white ghosts using the Quickutz ghost die.
