Once Upon A Time at Ching-Chou Kuik

I couldn't resist joining in the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge this month. The theme is 'Once Upon A Time' so we'd love to see your story-inspired makes. 

One of my favourite books as a child was 'The Worst Witch' by Jill Murphy and I actually still have my original copy! I'm very precious about books, so it's in great condition.  I did give it to my niece along with all my other childhood books but now she's a teenager and I have my own children, my sister gave them all back to me.

I have used 'Big Pumpkin' to make a pop-up card for my inspiration.  I made one of these last Halloween and I really love the design.  It can be given as a card, or if you're like me and can't bear to part with it, used as a decoration!

Products used:
  • Papermania cardstock
  • Recollections 'Ravenshead Manor' laser cut card
  • Recollections spooky house sticker
  • Graphic 45 'Steampunk Spells' and 'Once Upon An Eerie Tale' embellishments and papers
  • Papermania black gems
  • Twine
  • Tonic Tim Holtz paper distresser
  • ProMarkers - Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin, Umber, Burnt Sienna, Henna, Raw Sienna, Apricot, Black, Cool Grey 1, 2, 4 & 5, Warm Grey 3, 4 & 5, Aegean, Sky Blue, Sunkissed Pink, Cocoa, Pumpkin, Gold, Sunflower, Tulip, Bright Orange & Amber
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll

These pop-ups do fold flat for posting (I had to hold it down for the photograph as it doesn't stay unless in an envelope!)
