Hoppy Cauldron Pop-Up card

Good morning friends

Welcome to Karen Burnitson's first Designer Challenge for September 2016 "Halloween" - Cute or creepy - you decide!" For my card I combined some of the awesome new Hallowen Collection with some older Pop it Ups, since they all work together seamlessly.

I kept the front somewhat simple, with hand lettering, stamps from the new Halloween Clear Stamps and black glittery bats from the Halloween Scene set.

Inside I made a little Halloween Scene with the Halloween Scene dies, Hoppy the Frog wearing a Witches Hat from the new Props 9, a fun cauldron (details below) and the Lucy Label Pop-Up.

Tee hee hee - love that Witches hat. All the Characters looks great in it! The moon was created using the circle from the Sports Charms with the hanging hole trimmed off and coloured with Copic markers. It's the perfect size for the tombstone edge. There is another glittered bat as well.

I had so much fun making the cauldron. The bowl is the cup from the Cup Pop Stand, with about 1/4" trimmed off the top edge, and the handle also trimmed away. Bubbles were cut from white pearlized card stock and the feet of the cauldron are from the Bath Tub Pop Stand. Because they were cut from black glittered card stock you can hardly see the edges, but using a black sharpie on those edges helped too.

The spider web from the new Halloween Charms and the steam from the Cup Pop Stand were cut from vellum. I stamped the Happy Halloween in black, then outlined the spider web with a green metallic gel pen and added eyes to the spider with the same pen.

Here is another look at the card opened.
