A Witch Hat and Pumpkin For Your Table

Looking for centerpiece ideas for that last minute Halloween party?!  Well, if you have some WorldWin Papers card stock and a few minutes you can create something adorable for that table!

The hat was created with the Original Colormates in Deep Lovely Lilac, Deep Dream Orange and Heritage Black.  I used a cut file from the Silhouette store to make it.  I added the ribbon, because it looked adorable on there! 

The pumpkin was made with the Original Colormates in Deep Dream Orange and the leaves with the Petallics in GreenEyes  I did use a full 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock for it.  I made it from a cut file, but you could easily do this without one. 
  • Just score an entire sheet of 12 x 12 paper every 1/4 inch.  
  • Cut 5 strips out in various widths, keeping two of them fairly the same size (bigger) and then two of them fairly the same size (smaller) and then a smaller one for the top.  
  • Once cut, accordion fold the strips and use strong adhesive to hold the ends together of each strip.  When dried then shape each of the strips into a circle and glue to a piece of scrap cardstock to hold the shape.  
  • Stack on top of each other making the pumpkin.  You may have to fiddle with it to get it the way you want it.
  • Cut out or punch leaves and arrange on top.  Add a stem, I used a twig.  Tie with twine.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  Have a safe and fun Halloween!!

Birthday Blessings

Hi, it's Gini and I'm back to share a card that I created combining some of my favorite WorldWin papers.

I used WorldWin Papers Matte Gold Kromekote paper cobined with the shades of purple to create a regal feel for this card.  I stamped and embossed the smaller image from Violette Vintage Labels twice - and colored them with gelatos.  I butted them up next to each other to form a larger shape, and layered that with JustRite's/Spellbinders Antique Labels One die.  I stamped the sentiment from Vintage Filagree Fancies, and embossed it with gold powder.

I love how this card turned out! It really has so much depth and texture and was so fun to create!


WorldWin Papers:
Kromekote - Matte Gold

Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Regal
Want2Scrap Pearls
Smooch - Gold Lame

A Little Kromekote?!?!

Today I wanted to share a quick project using the gorgeous new Kromekote papers! This is a layout of our new Granddaughter! I used several colors of the Kromekote and embossed them. They emboss beautifully due to the thickness and texture of the papers.

Below are a few close-ups of some of the details. You can see how beautifully it embosses! I made little photo corners too!

I used some foam pop-dots for dimension also. A couple of blooms, some twine and a little work with my Zig markers and it's done! I hope you try your hand at embossing these wonderful papers! Thanks so much for looking!!!
