Make It Monday // Spooky Banner {Top Dog Dies}



MakeItMondayCircle-FALL2015Welcome to another Make It Monday… on a Wednesday 🙂 Life’s been a little nutty*, but then again, who isn’t in the same boat?! But I couldn’t let the week pass without sharing this little cutie pie banner, er um, creepy, freaky banner!

I wanted to use the Top Dog Dies Wicked Witch Die Set again. It’s so fabulous, I just couldn’t help myself! You might remember the Witch card I made a few weeks ago? Check it out here if you missed it.

I really wanted to make a banner that said “Drink Up Witches” and have the witch feet upside down, lol! But as a mommy to two young girls, that just wouldn’t work in our house. Too many questions! And I think I’ve been reminiscing about my college and young adult life years too much. Ah, the good old days… But I digress. Just thought I’d share that banner idea for anyone interested in making a sassy banner of their own!

As always, thanks for stopping by my little colorful spot on the web! Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! And make sure you’re on the Clicky Chick Creates email list so you don’t miss a thing! Sign up here!

Make It Monday // Wicked Witch Card

MakeItMondayCircle-FALL2015Welcome to another Make it Monday! Yes, technically, it’s Tuesday, but really? Make it Tuesday just doesn’t have quite the same ring!

I’m back with another fun card made using the newest release from Top Dog Dies! How adorable is this Wicked Witch set?! The details that go into the dies are amazing! The skirt has adorable stitching, as do the stockings and shoes. I used the stitches on the stockings as my guides to color in stripes for her – so cute! And the buckles on the shoes? Well of course they had to be gold! I even added a gold spider on her skirt for a little extra kick. Even a witch likes to be blinged out!


I added another spider, this time to the cauldron on the patterned paper (from DCWV, no longer available) – little details like that can help tie in the entire scene together! Oh, and another way I tied it all in together was adding Wink of Stella. A whole lot of it! To the shoes, the jack-o-lanterns on the skirt, the spider and bubbles on the cauldron, and some of the text on the left. Easy peasy!


I hope you’re inspired to create some fun Halloween cards! I think this set would be adorable on some party invites, too! How would you use the dies? I’d love to hear! And be sure to check them out over on the Top Dog Dies site – lots of new releases just announced in the last week! Super cute stuff!
