Hi Friends! It’s EK popping in to create a little Halloween Fun. My family’s favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus, and it occurred to me, that I could make my own bit of witchy fun using the Halloween Accessories and some creative coloring.
Step One: Die cut all the pieces you need from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock using both the Halloween Accessories die set and the Spider Web die set.
Step Two: Color up the accessories and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. I used a combination of cool grays for the cauldron (C5, C7, C9). I used E31, E34, and E37 for the bristles on the broom stick, while I used E81, E84, and E87 for the handle and spoon. I used G02, G05, and G09 for the bubbles and sludge.
Step Three: Color up the Witch’s Hats and assemble with Kid’s Choice Glue. I themed each of the hats after each of the three witches from Hocus Pocus. I colored a blonde hat (Y000, Y00, Y02 and Y06) to represent Sarah, a gray hat (W5, W7, W9) to represent Mary, and a reddish hat (E13, E07, E09, E19) to represent Winifred.
Step Four: Cut a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and score and fold to make a 6×6 card base. Then spray and splatter the card frame with some Distress Oxide Spray. I used Mermaid Lagoon.
Step Five: Die cut out the movie title’s letters using the Blackboard Alphabet letters from some Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Six: Using a copic maker, give the title a little shading. I used both a YG13 and N2 copic.
Step Seven: Trim the spider web into half and adhere it to the corners of the card frame with some Kids Choice Glue.
Step Eight: Using both Kids Choice Glue and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the rest of the pieces of the card to the card frame.
I just love how this card came out and can’t wait to send it to my best friend who loves this move even more than I do. I think without stealing any intellectual rights, I was about to absolutely capture the feel of the movie.
Let me know in the comments below if I put a spell on you! Until then, Happy Crafting.
