Hi all, thank you for joining me with todays blog post. Fall and Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year so I wanted to create this fun title page to start my month of October and nothing says October like Pumpkins, leaves and an owl witch. So grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte and lets begin!
Step 1: Cut out your images ( I used a lot of different sets from Joset’s collection see sets below) from your favorite cardstock and ink the edges with distress ink.
Next cut out your planner page and ink blend them with Black Soot, Villainous Potion and Shaded Lilac as per the picture above.
I sprinkled my page with water and dabbed it with a paper towel and set it aside to dry.
Once the page is dry I attached my tree and pop-dotted my owl. Next, add your spiders web, pumpkin and pop-dot your Jack-o’-lantern. Add your leaves, spider and your October title. Last step is to speckle with white heavy body paint.
Thank you for joining me today and have a crafty happy day!
Hello every one! It’s me Alice, today it’s my turn to show you a creation. I choise this time for a combination with a touch of Halloween and a boys theme.
I made this time the Parrot in a Pirate outfit and some Halloween stuff. The Parrot is making some green food for his spider friends and the for the bats.
The parrot I colored with different colors distress ink. Love it to use a lote of colors. And this theme is perfect for that.
On the background a made some clouds with a mask stencil and also some distress ink. This time I choise for some purple clouds.
On the background between the palm trees there is a spiderweb from the little friend of the parrot. The are playing at the beace. Waiting of the diner the parrot is making. In the air the bats are flying and waiting also on the dinner.
In the front a stamp with the cute text you’re so cool it’s scary. How lovely is this card for a boy. Or a cool girl ofcours.
Hello and Welcome! One of my favourite reason why I love playing with dies (especially background dies) is how versatile they can be. Here I’m using the Spider Web Slimline Background die angled to create an A6 card. I’m using heaps of colour to contrast it against the black spiders and the angle of the card draws you into the spiders! Here’s how I made it…
Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of several coloured pieces of card stock.
Step 2: Die cut the slimline die, repeat this for the remaining coloured pieces of card stock.
TIP: To avoid wastage think of other layouts that you could use the remaining die cuts for. As you are die cutting the slimline die 5-6 times, there is potential to create many more cards!
Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the outline of the web to an A6 card front. Next, use the negative die cuts from the other pieces of paper, remove the adhesive backing, and adhere these in place as shown in the image below.
TIP: Adhering clear double sided adhesive to the back of each card stock before die cutting, save you time (and glue)!
Step 4: Continue to do this until all the negative space has been filled. Trim any excess over lapping card stock.
Step 5: Die cute 5x spiders. Adhere clear jewelry thread (15cm long) to the back of two spiders, add a foam dot, and then adhere another spider to hide the thread on the spider.
Step 6: Take the thread and adhere it to the back of your card front as shown below. Next adhere your card front to an A6 card base.
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment, die cut and adhere to the card front. Embellish the card, with enamel dots and adhere the last spider to the card front.
As you can see below the very spooky spiders can dangle making this a very simple interactive card perfect for Halloween or anyone who loves creepy crawlies!

This fun pizza box has a shaker box on top with all kinds of scary critters, ghosts and other Halloween shaker material in it. That’s nice of course, especially to treat children, a toy and in the box….A trick are a treat????
On the boxes I glued the scarecrow from Esther’s new collection.
The inside is also decorated.
Of course there is something delicious in it but even that looks very spooky!!!
Below is a small workshop of how I made the box.
The box is punched out of purple cardstock.
Gathered some shaking material.
For the top and the inside of Halloween box I used design paper (I don’t remember which brand it is but very old). Die cut with the dies of the pizza box.
The stamps are also part of Esther’s collection and you can play with them and make a ticket according to your own idea!
The edge received a layer of double-sided tape of 3 mm
Stick a piece of mica on it and then strips of foam tape, also of 3 mm, along the edges. I cut it myself. TIP from Els.
You now have a raised edge so that the shaker material will have room to move later.
I decorated the edges of the box both on the inside and the outside with distress ink.
The piece of design paper that I stuck on the top first got some nice stamps. The spider web is from my own collection.
Then stick the piece with mica on it, leave the strip of the foam tape on the top so you can fill the shaker box with the shaker material.
If everything is to your liking, remove the strip from the foam tape and stick the shaker box firmly to the box, pressing the edges well.
Then you can decorate the inside according to your own idea.
When the box has been completely processed on the inside and outside you can stick the scarecrow on it with glue. If you prefer to use tape, be careful not to cover the entire scarecrow with tape, because it sticks a bit over the box.
The edges of my box also got a decorative layer, you can use strips of design paper for that. I made strips with an impresslits from Tim Holtz and inked them with distress ink.
I had so much fun creating this box. I have already made 2, this is the other one.
For the other one I just used white cardstock and edited it with stamps and a stencil from the Art collection with the bird’s feet.
Hello everyone, it’s Alice here. Today I want to show you how to create this fun Happy Harvest tri-fold card using some brand new dies from the Halloween collection designed by Joset. As a base for the 3 panels I used the Planner Essentials Die 1868, Shapes, Frames & Words. On the background I made some clouds with a mask stencil and Distress Ink Oxide (Tumbles glass). For the panels I also used Planner Essential Die 1868 and some beautiful paper from Bella BLVD that are fantastic for Fall and Halloween projects.
I made a fence on all three panels. This one is from the Adventure Edges 2 set. The fences are cut from White Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Ground espresso Distress Ink. Exactly 5 posts of the fence fit on each panel.
I added a corn stalk on the outer 2 panels also cut from White Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Mustard seed and Crushed olive Distress Ink. For the roots I used Vintage photo.
In the middle I used the very cute scarcrow. For this one I used many different colors Distress Ink. All the colors I used you can see on the picture below.
I added the Happy Harvest sentiment just in front of the scarecrow. I stamps the sentiment on a little piece of White Soft Finish cardstock that I colored with Rusty hinge Distress Ink.
I added some leaves to each panel for decoration. I used the leave dies that are included in the Turkey die set for this.
Below you can see the finished card one more time. I hope that I inspired you with this project and I hope that you will have just as much fun with the new Halloween collection as I did. It’s so cool to combine all the different dies!

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I am popping in with a little bit of fan art I created using several stamp sets from Ilse and Charlene. This collection has a whole host of great stamp sets featuring different girls, and I have been kicking the idea around for some time about combining them to create a little homage to my favorite Halloween Movie. I don’t know if I quite captured the look I was going for, but I sure had a lot of fun trying.
Step One: Trim a piece of watercolor to 6×4.5 inches. Stamp girl images from Floral Girls, Halloween Party, and Make a Wish stamp sets onto Watercolor paper, masking where needed. I picked three different gal images trying to capture a likeness of three famous movie witches.
Step Two: Peel up the masks to reveal the stamped images.
Step Three: Watercolor the images focusing in on the skin and hair. I used ECD’s Watercolor Palette.
Step Four: Finish watercoloring the image.
Step Five: Blend ink around the edges to create a haze. I used Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide.
Step Six: Trim a piece of black cardstock to 8.5×6 inches. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to the black cardstock. Die cut a halloween sentiment from the Words 3 Happy Holidays die set. Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the sentiment to the cardstock.
While I did not quite capture the three witches from my favorite spooky movie, I am still going to matte this piece and frame it for the Halloween Season.
Do you ever try to capture pop culture themes with your stamps and dies? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.

No Halloween without pumpkin. I love everything about them; the way they grow, the beautiful leaves, the curls and the enchanting flowers and then those delicious orange pumpkins, so beautiful!!
I’ve tried a few times to grow them in my garden, but I can’t get past the flowers. I think I’m doing something wrong. But also the flowers are beautiful so I buy the pumpkins in the shop or in the garden centre.
On this page no pictures of pumpkins because it’s not quite yet the season although I already saw beautiful plants in my area. Not in my yard this time.
Today again a little further with my Halloween calendar, day 3 of October.
The funny Dracula is from a set by Tim Holtz. Furthermore, only Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps and dies used.
The base is made with set 5 of the Sidekick planner, then I made a layer with die set 21 Note Pieces.
With a little stencil (own collection) I wrote the text Almost Halloween and stamped the text Hello Pumpkin. I will show you later how I did it.
I edited this text with black embossing powder.
The pumpkins stamps are from the ECD Halloween clear stamp set. I colored them with the watercolor palette set. Such beautiful colors! I made reinforcers out of the little pumpkins by giving them a hole with the Crop a dile, it looks like a big mouth 😉
I have to continue with my planner because October is getting pretty close!!
This is all I’ve used for this page.
I promised to show you how I stamped my sentiment. This is how I did it. Sometimes I don’t want to use the whole stamp but a part of it like here. This is a stamp from the Halloween collection “spooky sentiments”. The part I didn’t want to use I taped with washi tape. I then inked my stamp and just before stamping I removed the tape. You do have to work a little fast as otherwise your ink already dries up so make sure you have everything ready to go. I’ve stamped with Versafine, which last for quite a long time. Then I sprinkled embossing powder over it and heated it, then the stamp is even sharper and with a nice shine.
This is what I wanted to show you today. I hope I inspired you a little bit.
