Fall has officially arrived! One of my favorite times of the year. 🙂 I always get so energized this time of year. I always have a long list of things to create, projects to get completed around the house and recipes to bake. I guess it is the old instinct to forage, harvest and store before winter sets in.
Halloween is just around the corner. I just LOVE Halloween! This is traditionally the weekend that I decorate for Halloween. I can’t wait to get out all those pumpkin and witch decorations. In preparation for my decorating frenzy this weekend I am posting a card that was made by the artists at A Muse Studio. I love this stamp set Toil and Trouble. It is cute and no too creepy. My Halloween style. 🙂 This set and many more are in the new Holiday Catalog from A Muse Studio. If you don’t have your copy yet just let me know – it’s FREE (only $3 for shipping if I have to mail it to you).
We are getting closer and closer to Halloween. I am trying to continue my challenge of posting every day until Halloween. Today’s post is a simple card. I love this vintage, naughty witch. I made this card to sit beside the punch bowl at a Halloween party. The sentiments and the circle design are from Papertrey Ink, but I don’t know where the lovely witch is from. If you do, please let me know.
Since this is the week before Halloween, I am going to have a week of Halloween projects. I will kick the week off with this witchy women. I love this witch from the Stampinbella line of stamps. I made her in mind for a submition into a marker challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks and a spooky challenge at Divas by Design. Both are very creative blogs that hosts weekly challenges. This week Crafty Chicks was devoted to coloring. I think my witch is just fabulous! I used DCWV cardstocks and Copic markers for coloring. I hi-lited her dress in several areas with Stickles. The photo doesn’t really pick up her sparkle. The sentiment “Best Witches!” is from Stampin’ Up! I plan on sending this card to my new friend Emily S. She was with me when I was coloring my witch.
Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead
I saw this today on the blog Holiday Snob and just had to share it with you. I just LOVE the Wizard of Oz (and sometimes feel the Witch of the West got the short end of the broom stick). 🙂 The directions to make it are pretty easy. I may just have to make a pair to sit on my front porch under my door bell.
I made this sweet card at an Angel event sponsored my up-line, Marisa Alvarez. She designed this card using our TAC stamp set Delightfully Spooky and coloring it in using our Copic Caboodle markers set D. The gray clouds were made by cutting gray felt with a die cut machine.
