Glitz Raven Hop

Hi everyone! Happy Halloween! The Glitz teams are having a blog hop today to showcase the Raven collection.

If you haven't seen this collection yet, it is gorgeous! I used it for Halloween projects, but I think the papers would be great for non-Halloween projects, too.

First up, I made a treat box using the digital collection:

I die-cut the treat box on my Cameo using the pretty woodgrain paper from the digital Raven Paper Pack. For the Pointed Feathers, I painted the tips of the paper with liquid gold leafing. Once the leafing was dry, I added coarse glitter to the edges. I'm in love with the translucency of the liquid gold! I may be adding it to everything around my house. :)

I trimmed a thin strip of of the black and white Raven paper, added the liquid gold on the back side, and curled it around a pencil. It's adds a bit of whimsy. :) Below the bow, I added the Trick or Treat sentiment from the Element Pack #2.

For my second project, I made a card using the digital collection:

I used the grey stripe paper and lowered the opacity. I layered two of the bats from Element Packs #1 and #2 and printed the background. For the sentiment, I wanted a little dimension, so I used the same technique in THIS video I made--I printed the sentiment from Element Pack #1 and then die-cut it on my Cameo.

The faux-gold is wicked cool!
