Hex Yeah

You guys, it’s time for another release from The Rabbit Hole Designs and this month, it’s all about Halloween! Today, I’ve got a pair of fun cards made with the new Hex Yeah set and I really love how they came out. This set is full of fun sentiments and a couple of awesome images. I used the witch to accent a cauldron shaped shaker card for one card. And I used the bats to create a spooky sentiment on another. 

For the cauldron card, I didn’t have any special die set to cut the shape from; I simply pieced it together with a few ordinary dies in my stash. I used a large circle die to cut a black card front, and two more from white cardstock to create the card base. I used a curved Slide On Over die to cut a pair of black cardstock lips for the top of the pot. I also cut another pair from black fun foam to create the walls of the shaker pocket. I sandwiched a piece of acetate between the foam and cardstock lips to make the window. Once I had the window created, I marked how high it would sit at the top of the circle, then used the same curved die to cut off the top of the circle. I cut all three circles down like this. I colored a scrap of cardstock green and trimmed it to fit under the window. I filled the window with sequins and tiny glass marbles, then glued the green piece in place to seal the shaker bits inside. I embossed my sentiment on the bottom of the cauldron and glued on the legs and handles. The legs were cut from a straight Slide on Over die, cut in half. The handles were cut out using the U-shaped eyes in this die set. I glued the black cauldron onto one of the white circles. Then, I scored a line 5/8″ from the top of the other white circle to form a hinge. I stamped Happy Halloween onto it and glued the hinge to the front of the card. I glued the shaker window to the top of the cauldron, then popped up my Copic colored and fussy cut witch with foam tape. A few more sequins glued to the outside of the card finished it up. Shaker cards are so much fun to play with. There is something oddly satisfying about the sound…

My second card isn’t interactive, but I really love the colors and the way the sentiment pops against it. It’s a 4″ x 9″ card and fits into a standard #10 envelope. To make this card, I cut a panel of white cardstock to 4″ x 9″ and ink blended Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks onto the panel. To help the green and orange blend together, I added just a little Squeezed Lemonade, and where the orange and purple met, I added a little Worn Lipstick. That helped me transition the colors without muddying them up. Once I was happy with the blend, I added Black Soot to the purple edges and splattered on black watercolor. I let the panel dry and trimmed 1/8″ off all the way around. I mounted it to a 4″ x 9″ card base. For the wicked sentiment, I repeatedly stamped and embossed a panel of white cardstock with the bats. I colored them in with grey Copic markers, then die cut the word from the panel. (I saved the rest of the panel to use later for another card.) I die cut the word twice more from scrap cardstock and glued the letters together for a nice, stacked look. I lined them up and glued them to the card. Then, I stamped and embossed the smaller sentiment onto the card, above the word wicked. To finish the card, I glued on a few sequins. I love that the tiny black and white bats allow the bold colorful background to really stand out. It feels like a Halloween rainbow to me πŸ˜‰
