I’m excited to be back again today joining Poshta Design and introducing the new Autumn release. Today I am sharing projects with the Eerie Apothecary die, Poison Apple Details die, and Gingerbread Friends: Skeleton Details die. I had so much fun with these dies as you will see by some of my projects!
First up, the Poison Apple details die (retail for $20). This die is an add-on to the Autumn Apple die introduced yesterday. You can take that innocent apple and transform it into a classic poison apple with all of the Snow White evil witch vibes. I love this die and will definitely be whipping up a few more to use in my Halloween decor. Now because this is a poisoned apple I tried a few things on my felt to get a different look. I pulled out some Distress Mica Sprays and did some experimenting. You can see a big darker spray at the top of the green and some yellowish drips and splatters. I also rubbed on some bright green stickles glitter to the top as well. I really loved the look and extra dimension that adding the spray and glitter added.
Next up are these cute little Skeletons! I think the Gingerbread Friends: Skeleton Details die (retail for $18) is so much fun to stretch the Gingerbread Friends die even further. I used the colors from the new Trick or Treat Color Story for my little skeletons. They definitely have a bit of a Day of the Dead vibe in these colors.
You can make a girl or a boy skeleton since the details die fits both outlines. I think these skeletons would be really fun to create a little Halloween banner. They would even be fun to mix with the Jack-O-Lantern die.
Next up is my favorite project of this release. I had so much fun with the Eerie Apothocary dies (retail for $32) and I created this really fun wreath. I want to make something a little different and I had a lot of fun designing this project.
I used the same method of adding Distress Mica spray to the felt to give a bit of a distressed look to the bottles and banners above. I hand-cut the banners and used the Accessory Alphabet die to cut and stitch the letters. The little bats at the top are two layers of felt and I glued them to some thin wire to add some fun detail at the top. I love that they look like they are floating up there.
I love all the little details you can add to the labels. For the skull, I did cut two of the leg bones from the skeleton die set to stitch below the skull for that classic skull and crossbones icon.
As I said previously I used colors from the new Trick or Treat color story (retail for $53) for this project. This has some great bright Halloween colors. I love the addition of teal and pink to the traditional Halloween color palette.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will be back tomorrow for one last day of projects for the Poshta Design Autumn release.
