Best Witches Creative Cafe Kit + Halloween Elements

 Hi There!  Kendra here with more super fun Halloween cards using the new Best Witches Creative Cafe Kit from The Rubber Cafe!

My first card today uses images from the Add-On stamp set for the kit called Halloween Elements. The cardstock (green & black), pattern paper, lace trim and all of the stamp images are all part of the Best Witches kit ~ the only things I used that weren't included in the kit were ink, die cuts and adhesive.

I started my card by stamping the gate image across the bottom the card in Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and then stamped the cat on top of the fence.  Since these are clear stamps, it's super easy to line them up.

Next I added two different patterns of paper as a top border and added some lace trim to hide the raw edge of the pattern paper.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment, used a die cut oval to trim it and then cut a mat.  I attached it to the card using Kool Tac Foam Tape and then added Queen & Company black gems (included in kit) to the top and bottom of the sentiment.

My second card today, uses various scraps of pattern paper included in the kit to highlight the Happy Halloween sentiment.  

After I prepared the black card base and two layers, I stamped the large and small bat images on the purple card panel with VersaMark ink.  Next, I added a piece of the Halloween Washi Tape across the top of the card and folded the edges around the back of the panel.  Then I cut a strip of the sparkly tulle and tied it around the purple panel.   Once that was finished, I added Kool Tak Foam Tape to the back of the panel and attached it to the card base.

Next, I trimmed 6 different trip pieces of pattern paper (1/4" x 3") and attached them to the purple card panel.  

I then stamped the Happy Halloween sentiment (from the add-on wet called Halloween Elements) on the white cardstock and added a piece of the Halloween Washi tape from the kit.

I lined up my oval die and cut the image so the Washi tape was a border for the sentiment.

Next I trimmed green and black layers for the sentiment and attached them to the card with Kool Tak Foam Tape and stamped a bat in Grape Jelly Memento Ink on white cardstock.  I attached the bat with a small piece of the Kool Tak Foam so he would pop off the card.

The last touch was to add a few black Queen & Company gems to each side of the sentiment.

I made 5 cards with my kit supplies and I still have tons of products left ~ pattern paper, cardstock, almost a full roll of Washi tape, 3 packages of gems with just a few gone, and yards of ribbon too!  These kits are such a great value and I can't wait to make some Halloween tags for my kids treats!
