Little Witchy

Hello my crafting buddies.  I am smiling and doing a little happy dance because I finally have new counter-tops and a new back-splash.  I love the results so I posted a mini video on Facebook if anyone is interested.

Another reason that I am smiling is because I enjoy creating cute Halloween cards, although I only know 2 people with Halloween birthdays.  Creating cute spooky little cards is just fun for me.  Today I have a couple of those cards to share.


The image (Little Witch)) and greeting (A Little Witchy) is from Mo Manning.  The little cat is part of a collection of cats from an Impression Obsession die.  My selection of papers include purple and black as my main colors accented with a little orange to bring out my images almost pumpkin colored hair.  The card-stock is Bazzil, but the DP is unknown because it came from my scrap pile. I also pulled the flowers and the piece of ribbon out of my scrap pile, but I think they were part of a Recollections pack (not sure). 


I completed the inside using the same paper as the front as well as a second cat. Masked out a space for the moon and added a fence using a Tim Holtz die.

I used the following copics to color my image:
Cape:  BG45, 47, 49, 53
Outfit:  V04, 06, 09, YR07, 18, 19
Broom: E53, 57, 59
Hair:  E19, YR18, YR67
Kitty:  C3, 5, 7
Skin:  E01, 11, 13

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes (10/24)
The Paper Shelter - #269 Halloween (10/24)
Inspiration Destination - #108 Anything Goes (10/24)
House That Stamps Built - 0916 Photo Inspiration (10/25)
Colour Q Challenge - #364 Photo Palette


My second Halloween card was all about the composition of the paper.  The stamped image is from Stampin' Up and I thought keeping it black and white was perfect for this particular card.

The paper is a combination of sheets from My Mind's Eye and the Chillingsworth Manor collection released by Echo Park. A Spellbinders die and an EK Success border punch was used to create a mat for the image.


Here is a side peek of the inside.  It pretty much follows the layout of the front, which I often do with my cards if I have enough paper left.

Thanks Jen of iCreate for the inspiration to create this card.

Cardz 4 Guyz - #142 Boo Halloween (10/23)

Thanks for stopping by.

Sending hugs from Texas

I love your cute Halloween cards. I have the same DP as you used on this card and I love it. I used it on a Christmas card, but your use of it on a Halloween card is perfect.
