Halloween or Fall Decoration

Hi everyone, it's my first post as a guest designer for Die~Namites dies today and at first I wanna say thank you for choosing me to the guest design team. The Die~Namites dies are absolutely awesome!

Today I'd like to share with you a fall/ Halloween decoration project.

I created a little lantern with my Silhouette Studio and decorated it with the following Die~Namites dies. At the beginning I was not sure if I could manage a halloween themed project with these lovely dies, but I think I got it!

 I was totally impressed, that the intricate doily cut so easily!

I cut all the dies out of black cardstock. I cut the Large Ivy into pieces and covered them with Distress Ink Embossing Powder (Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord and Spiced Marmalad). So I got nice colors and a beautiful texture. 
I used the Spring Doily for the inside of my luminary windows. Therefor I also used pieces of the complete die cut.

The Bird Wreath is covered with Black Distress Embossing Powder and I also cut of a little part.

The backside of my lantern is some orange vellum. I put the Large Ivy (covered with Spiced Marmalad Distress Embossing Powder) on it. So I get a nice silhouette. It's looks awesome with a LED candle light.

I hope you like my decoration and maybe you are inspired to create your own. I'd be happy if you'd also visit my blog. You can download the cutting file for the lantern there.

Have a nice day and see you all soon! Hugs, Susanne.
