whimsical wednesdays hallowen is creeping through our homes

happy wednesday!  this week over at WW halloween is creeping through all our homes...were to create a spooktacular  home decor project :) 
i chose to spook up  a small  grapevine wreath with some fun embellishments.

for my witch i used my cricut and a childs year cartridge.(shes the shift key) i cut off her broom and cat and a bit of her arm. i kept the top piece of broom attached for her spoon to stir her bubbly brew with. i added stickles to her cape. the cauldron and potion bottles are from paperdolls. i embossed the bottels with utee . i added cloud9 raindots for bubbles. the rats are martha stewart punch.
the spider is cuttlebug. i made a cocoon out of cotton ball then added stickles. 
i made the broom from a craft pick and raffia.
                                                                  the bats are cuttlebug.
                                                the poisonous flower is from  accent essentials

i hand wrote the witchyshop sign and added a bit of  fabulous crinkle ribbon from prairiebirdboutique.

i also want to share another card i made using stamps from another one of our sponsors tanner from he is offering to one random winner a choice of 1 stamp set. thank you so much tanner! ive really had fun with your stamps :) 

  i used  the flowers, bees and sentiment  from the set simply everything volume 1 .
i added pearl centers to the flowers using viva decor pearl  pen then adhered with  foam stickies. i stamped the bees then stamped their bodies again for just a little depth. i hand drew the vines and colored the leaves in with su watercolor pencil (no water just colored)

                                                    a little dimensional view
be sure to check out tanners stamps. he has some fun sets and they really are good quality and easy to use, hardly had to apply pressure for great clean images.

i hope i inspired you to share your creations with us over at WW . if i didnt im sure the rest of the dt has with their frightfully fun projects :) have a great rest of day or evening :) thanks so much for visiting me  your comments make me smile. now go get your craft on :) xxxshelly
