Hey there and welcome to the October Afternoon Witch Hazel Blog Hop. Many of the Design Team members have fun posts to share today + we have prizes! So be sure to check out the October Afternoon blog for all the blog hop stops....then visit each blog to leave comments for the prizes.
I've posted several projects on my blog using the Witch Hazel collection for Halloween projects. Today I thought I would flip things over and work with the "B" side of the patterned papers. Now the papers don't really say "A" and "B" but in crafty language we all know that the "B" side is usually the side that does not have the big pattern on it. In the case of Witch Hazel I'm talking about the sides that don't have definite Halloween patterns. You can see the papers below that are "B" sides of Witch Hazel + I've set out some buttons, labels, tidbits and Washi tape that could be used on everyday type projects.
For my cards today I've chosen 4 of the patterned papers to create some card front pieces + a punched and stitched garland. I've also set aside some buttons and the black and white polka dot Washi tape. I stitched down the sides of my patterned paper pieces.
Here are the four cards I created which will be used as thank you cards for those who gave presents to Jordan for her birthday.
I stamped my Studio Calico words in different color inks onto Project Life 3 x 4 grid journaling cards.
Next I cut out garland strips to add to the card front along with a tied button. I added a strip of the Washi tape and torn strip of scrap patterned paper. Very quick and easy. I love that the colors have a hint of Fall colors like the orange....but that they could be used for any time of year and for any occasion.
I also used some stamps from my stash and more Washi tape to create coordinating envelopes for the cards.
I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Remember.....those flip sides of themed papers make for some great everyday projects. And before I go, I have a give away for both of the Witch Hazel Washi tapes. Awesome, right?2Peas.
