Happy Halloween

Hi, Janja here!
Today, I share with you some ideas for Halloween. I made my creations with some of the recently released CottageCutz Halloween dies.

- CottageCutz dies: Spooky Cake, Spooky Cupcakes 1, Frankenstein & Ghost Owls, Halloween Pup, Circle Set (7th die from the center), Stitched Circle Set (6th die), Nested Stitched Scallop Circle Set (4th die), Cross-Stitched Square Set
- white scallop edge card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- black cardstock: 4.9 x 4.9" (12,4 x 12,4 cm), and 3.3 x 3.3" (8,4 x 8,4 cm)
- patterned paper: 4.7 x 4.7" (12 x 12 cm)
- white and colored cardstock
- washi tape
- pumpkin orange satin ribbon
- orange acrylic paint
- barbecue sticks
- glue, self-adhesive pads, double-sided adhesive tape
- Distress inks: Hickory Smoke, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Twiste Citron, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade
- Memento inks: Dandelion, Tangelo, Bamboo Leaves, Sweet Plum

To begin, cut out individual pieces of colored cardstock. Color all pieces on the edges with Distress and Memento inks, and put them together.

Trim selected patterned paper and black cardstock with a paper trimmer. For a white cardstock, use the largest die from Cross-Stitched Square Set.
Since the washi tape is less visible on the dark background, attach it to a white strip of paper.

Now it's time to get the card together. Paste both main motives with self-adhesive pads on the prepared background as shown.
At the end, I embellished the card and paper lollipops with a clear Wink of Stella brush pen.

Paste cupcakes to paper lollipops, which can be used for decoration.
Kids will be delighted with Halloween lollipops, especially if we add some candy.

Color sticks with acrylic paint and paste them on the cardstock. At the end, tie a ribbon.

I really hope you enjoyed my project today. 
Thank you for coming over and have a nice day.
