At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and Pink & Main. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists!
I love building large 3D projects like this one for the holidays…they usually look like they took way more time than they actually did to make and instead of storing yet another holiday decoration in the attic, I get to recycle my creation at the end of the season and start again fresh next year. For this fun scene, I took the English Cottage Kit from SVG Attic and made it into a haunted house just by changing the patterned papers I used and adding lots of spooky embellishments. Although this 3D project looks complicated to assemble, both written and video instructions are available when you purchase the kit…so it really didn’t take much time at all!
To add a little more fun to my scene, I also took the headstones and coffin designs from the Ghostly Graveyard Kit and shrunk them down to create a little cemetery next to my haunted house. The tree from the same kit was already sized perfectly for this project. My pumpkin patch came together quickly by stamping images from the “Hey Pumpkin” and “Scarecrows” sets on colored cardstock, cutting them out using the coordinating dies here and here, and inking around the edges for some dimension.
Next, I added some fun elements to the house that I stamped using several more sets from Pink & Main. The spiderwebs (“Witch Brew” set) and ghosts (“Punkin” set) were heat-embossed in black on some heavyweight vellum. I did the same for the bottles of poison (“Witch House” set), but also colored the back of these with Copic markers for more detail. The frog, sign, and bats are all images from the “Witch House” set as well.
The last little detail was the witch flying past the moon…this image (from the “Witch Brew” set) was stamped on top of some gold metallic cardstock, fussycut, and added to the background to give the illusion of a spooky night sky.
I hope you enjoyed this fun Halloween project and will continue on through the hop for even more inspiration!
