Torn Cardstock Halloween Witch Hat

I looooove Halloween! And when I got my hands on this Darice witch hat, I knew it screamed the need for some  Core’dinations Cardstock.

Torn Cardstock Witch Hat Supplies:

Step 1: Paint the top and bottom of the hat black just in case any of the base of the hat sneaks through. Basic black craft paint works just fine.

Step 2: Tear different strips of Core’dinations ColorCore cardstock. Paper tearing never gets old! Core is great for this because the color core looks great. For tips on tearing our cardstock, view our videos here. Tear the strips, sand them with Sand it Gadget and white off with Dust Buddy. Using the Dust Buddy is important because it helps the adhesive stick.

Step 3: Adhere torn strips, rotating colors and patterns on the top of the hat and finish off with some May Arts Ribbon.

Step 4: Place on a pumpkin or other decoration.

Black Magic Birthday Card Supplies:

Step 1.   Begin by sanding the Black Magic cardstock first. It’s important you sand BEFORE you stamp and wipe dust with Dust Buddy. Removing excess sand will help the clear ink pad stamp clearly to ensure a crisp image when you emboss.

Step 2. Emboss with Tim Holtz & Ranger heat embossing powder. I like to use my scraps because sometimes it takes a few tries to get a good image.

Step 3. Add layers of Glitter Silk and more Black Magic along with embellishments.

Halloween Layout Supplies:

Step 1. Using a ruler and cutting tool, cut the grid pattern in 1″ increments. Within those 1″ pieces, cut out a smaller square.  Where some of the lines meet, punch a whole for added interest. Lay a piece of Black Magic Cardstock  underneath it and score the lines that will appare in the negative image of the squares you just cut.

Step 2. Flip over the Black Magic and sand the scored lines, remove dust with Dust Buddy. Line them up again and adhere. Add your additional elements like the sanded doily cut from Chalk Core. Cut the ghosts from the vellum cardstock.

To Sand or Not To Sand….

That is the question! Should I sand my Core or not?  Today I have a great layout that focuses on some sanded Core and unsanded. The BEST thing about Core is the ability to be able to do BOTH.

This is a close-up of Core embossed but not sanded. I love the look of both but for this one, the Core was pink and I was going for a monochromatic feel for this layout so I didn’t sand.

The bowtie is from our Whitewash cardstock and it is sanded so the black core comes through when you use your Sand it Gadget. Don’t forget your Dust Buddy when using Core especially our Whitewash collection.
