The Witch is in!

The Witch is in!   I made a card with a few products from our new release today.  The front of my card features Flying Witch Marci, Scary Tree die and Creepy Vines die.  Sentiment is included with Flying Witch Marci stamp.

I cut 4 layers of Scary Tree out of thin chipboard.  Removed eyes and mouth from the top two and left them in the bottom two, really love the depth!  I inked all the layers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then stamped texture with one of the background stamps from Hero Arts.

I cut one of the Creepy Vine diecuts (there are two in this die set) in pieces and layered them behind the "hills".  I used our Filigree Corner die, well.. for the corners ;-)

I stamped another Flying Witch Marci image inside of my card, this one was stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Sentiment inside of the card is from Vampire Luka stamp.  You can see I also have our Eerie Bats here, there are 3 bats in this set - all different sizes and styles!

Flying Witch Marci was colored with Copics:
Skin - E00, E93, E11, E13, BV01
Hair - Y17, YR16, YR18, R59
Dress and Hat - E51, E53, E55, E57, E59

OWH - We Salute You!

 Today we are being featured on the Operation Write Home blog!   There is even our interview there!  What an HONOR!  YAY!!!

Of course I just had to make a card for the occasion.  And what a better image to use than on my project today than our Saluting Luka!  

Sentiment is included with this Luka stamp.  The dog is one of the Tuffy stamps from our Tuffy Set, he is a perfect companion to our Saluting Luka!

I made the "Made in USA" flags by attaching pieces of paper to toothpicks.

I used our Heart Fence Die, cut it in half and added to each side of my card.

This is the inside of my card.

Saluting Luka was colored with Copics:
Skin - E00, E01, E02
Hair - E21, E23, E25
Shirt - E50, E51, E53, E55
Tags - W1, W3
Hat and Pants - E53, E55 / E44 / YG91, YG93 / T3 (for shadows)
Boots - C1, C3, C5, C7

Lil' Devil Marci - Trick or Treat Box PLUS Tutorial!

 Here is my first project with a few products from our NEW September Release!  I designed a little Halloween Treat Box.  This is the same style box as I posted HERE.  As you can see, it's very versatile!

Here are simple instructions for my Treat Box:

1. Score a piece of 4" x 12" cardstock at 5 1/4" on each side and fold.  This is your base.

2. Score a piece of 4" x 6" cardstock at 1 1/4" on each side.  Cut on the scored lines as shown:

3. Make a box.

4. Attach the box inside of the base.

- Embellish front as desired.
- Punch a hole and insert the ribbon.
- DONE!  Easy peasy!!!

I used our Lil' Devil Marci for the front of my box.  She is all dressed up and ready for Halloween!  Sentiment is one of the accessory stamps included with Lil' Devil Marci.

I also used our NEW Frightful Fence and Eerie Bats Dies.  Love them both!

I cut the Frightful Fence in two pieces and layered it behind the "hill".

Lil' Devil Marci was colored with Copics:
Skin - E00, E01, E11, E13
Blush - R20, R30, R21
Hair - E02, E08, E17, E18, RV69
Outfit - RV52, RV55, RV66, RV69
Boots - C1, C3, C5, C7, C9

 Here is a card that can be used for many different occasions by changing the sentiment.  It has no coloring at all and no stamping besides the sentiment.  Everything used on my card was cut with our dies!  That's right!

I used two left over fence panels for inside of my card.
