Spooky Witch’s Hat

When the directions came out at Splitcoast for this cute project, I knew I just had to dig in and make it.  After going to several different stores, I finally found the styrofoam cone I needed for the top of the hat.  All tolled, it only took me about 4 hrs. to make – good grief!  But it was such a fun project, it was worth it.

  • I traced a 9" plate to make the bottom of the hat.  Both the bottom and top papers come from Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Paper.
  • I wrapped the designer paper around the styrofoam cone and adhered it to itself with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  In fact, all the adhering was done with this terrific glue and it held beautifully.
  • I punched various circles from Rich Razzleberry and Lucky Limeade card stocks to add to the top of the hat.
  • The Lucky Limeade card stock ruffle was created using 3 strips of 2" x 10" card stock and scoring every 1/2" with the Simply Scored Tool.  I used Sticky Strip all along the edge then poured on Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Here's a close-up of the front of the hat.

  • The witch is stamped in VersaMark Black Ink from the Googly Ghouls stamp set then I added a couple of touches with markers.  Oh my gosh – I just realized I didn't put her googly eyes on!  And she's no longer at my home to take another picture!  Well, you can just imagine how cute she would be with our new Googlies!
  • I popped the witch into a Flourish Designer Frame to look a bit like the buckle on the hat.
  • Stampin' Up! has a beautiful choice of ribbons, and I was able to pick up each color in the hat – Lucky LImeade Ruffled Ribbon, Pumpkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon.

And here's a picture with the hat tipped a bit so you can see how I finished off the top.  I just worked the designer paper into a little sideways bend for an authentic witch's hat look.  It made it so much easier than trying to finish off the top perfectly.

Valentine’s Day Stampin’ Up! Style

One of the highlights of the Stampin' Up! Leadership Convention in January was all of the display ideas, both from the Stampin' Up! home office as well as from all the demonstrators who attended.  I'll share some of my favorites with you in this post and in upcoming posts.

This is a darling set of Valentine's Day ideas that was on display.  The notes use PS I Love You stamp set.  Love the idea of making the pencil into an arrow!  And I love the idea for the cake pop box – they're all the rage right now!

And here's a sweet card using lots of new product from the Occasions Mini – the new Baker's Twine in Island Indigo, the Textured Impressions Adorning Accents Embossing Folder, Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and the PS I Love You stamp set.
